She noticed many movements were similar to those in her physical therapy sessions, but with added benefits of gaining flexibility, balance, and peace of mind.

Having been an avid yoga student for ten years, with a plethora of diverse instructors and styles, she began her own journey as a yoga instructor.

Suffering from low back pain for over 12 years, Haley tried everything to alleviate the pain. Later she was diagnosed with a herniated disc. In 2014, Haley began CrossFit to help her lose weight and after losing about 30 pounds, her symptoms did no improve. Her coach encouraged her to try yoga. What began as a way to alleviate pain, quickly developed into a way to relieve stress; her husband’s second deployment, an autism diagnosis for her oldest son & sinus surgery for her youngest son; all while living in Germany, away from family. Yoga changed her life in every way, from healing past trauma to lowering her blood pressure. Haley doesn’t only have a passion for the overall health benefits of yoga, but in teaching and encouraging others to better their own health and wellness. Haley has lost 70 pounds (so far), is a RYT 200 and has been teaching since 2015, a Level 1 CrossFit trainer and holds a BS in Complementary and Alternative Medicine. She is currently her Power RYT 300 Teacher Training.
Ana began her yoga journey 15 years ago in attempt to complement her lifestyle as a young, competitive swimmer.

After college, Ana’s yoga practice kept her driven and balanced during the rigors of graduate school. Ana completed Yoga Teacher Training (YTT) at Core Power Yoga in San Diego, CA. Ana’s teaching style focuses on a strong flow, moving with the breath, balancing, strengthening…ohhh, and amazing music!
