Jamiee started her yoga journey January 12th 2017 in Om-stead Yoga Community Beginners Yoga Workshop with Adrian. She instantly knew that yoga is more than just physical movement, she noticed something more powerful happening. After a steady practice for about 2 years now, her favorite studio was introducing it's very first ever 200hr yoga teacher training, she knew this was for her, she graduated her training in mid June 2019 and is now sharing her passion with others in hopes that she can change lives with yoga as yoga has done for her.

Isabel began her yoga journey a little over 8 years ago and became very consistent in her practice when she started going through several health issues and needed a positive and safe space to create self-love and feel grounded. Yoga was the most important element in her recovery and as she started to find healing and empowerment, she realized she wanted to share these benefits with others. This led her to the Yoga Loft located in Tampa,Fl. where she obtained her 200 hour yoga teacher training. Isabel’s intention is to cultivate a loving and nurturing environment in her classes where she will guide others to find their healing and inner strength through yoga.

Kim is registered with Yoga Alliance and has studied vinyasa yoga with Hayley Milks as well as sampoorna hatha yoga with Shri Yogi Hari at his ashram. Although teaching has become a passion, she continues to be a student of the practice. She strives to encourage others to let go of preconceived limitations and judgments while practicing acceptance for the present moment.

Kristen began exploring the practice of yoga in 2011 while in engineering school as a means of relieving stress. As someone who had never played sports or physically pushed herself, Kristen quickly became enamored with posture to heal her body and live a more vibrant life. The movement fostered a sense of empowerment that seeped into every aspect of her life, so she continued to delve into the other yogic practices. Breath and meditation internalized her healing and she is thankful to be able to share this transformative practice with those around her. She received her 200hr training in Anchorage, AK and teaches yoga in addition to working in the Everglades collecting data on an endangered bird species. In her classes you can expect to focus on safe alignment and exploring how the body responds to external and internal stimuli.

STRONG by Zumba Instructor
My fitness journey began completely by surprise. I began training for STRONG by Zumba (SBZ) after Vertiza Kostovski, my instructor and one of the few in South Florida, told me I should become a licensed instructor. I got licensed in SBZ in October 2017 and started working as an instructor in January 2018. Since then, I have grown as a group fitness instructor and have the following licenses and certifications: CPR/AED and First AID, AFAA Group Fitness, ACE Personal Training, Water in Motion, POP Pilates, and several other certifications through Crunch Fitness. Though I never expected to be at this point in my life (working at various gyms all over South Florida), I am enjoying the journey and sharing my passion for fitness and health with others. As I continue to challenge others to move and push their limits, I hope to challenge myself and grow not only as an instructor, but also as a person. "If it doesn't challenge you, it doesn't change you."- Fred DeVito
Rashielle began her yoga practice about two years ago. What started as a fun experiment in trying something totally out of her comfort zone became an amazing journey of self-discovery and empowerment. She studied vinyasa yoga under Hayley Milks and received her 200-hour teacher certification in 2016. The teacher training experience was an extremely rewarding and transformative one. Since then, she’s discovered that the more she teaches, the more there is to learn – both inwardly and out. Her practice leads to new surprises every day, and her hope in teaching is to share that feeling of growth and fulfillment with her students.
