Community is all of us becoming better, together.
In my class you'll feel: Energized. Inspired. Strong.
I took my first yoga class in late 2007, shortly after becoming a mom for the first time. For me and yoga, it was love at first sight. Immediately, I began to notice a physical and mental change. I was happier, calmer, kinder. I felt better and was a better mom, too! I began to shift my focus to what was important. Forever a student, I completed my 200-hour in Vinyasa Yoga (in 2014) and Level 1 in Yoga Tune Up® (in 2015). Almost ten years later, I can't imagine a day without a downdog and have complete appreciation for the impact yoga has had on my life.
My approach: Each and every day I strive to live a #yogalife—on and off the mat—and aim to motivate my students to do the same. I believe that yoga is for everyone and that regardless of your current abilities, yoga will change your life.
I can't live without: My people, peanut butter and a good book.
My happy place is: At home. On the mat. Road tripping.
Community is Unwavering support and unconditional love: the feeling that someone has your back even in times when we don't necessarily agree.
In my class I hope you will feel cleansed and rejuvenated with a sense of inner-peace
In my journey I've been a life-long spiritual seeker, I found yoga to be an instant “homecoming”. So grateful for this practice, I received my 200-hr with Marni Task in 2012 and began sharing my love of yoga. Feeling the call to dive even “deeper”, I enrolled in the 300-hr Advanced Yoga Training with Yoga on High in Columbus and completed the program in 2018. The magnitude of this practice is both humbling and exciting. The beauty and magic of this practice occurs when we take it “off the mat” and into our lives. I encourages my students to find the “teacher” in every moment.
When I'm not teaching, I am a vocalist, HR manager, wine-lover and enjoys spending time with my husband and three beautiful daughters.
I can't live without singing
My happy place has great food, even greater wine, and I'm surrounded by loved ones
Community is friendship, encouragement, support, fun, and saf.
In my class you'll feel lighter, supported, empowered and free to be who you are.
My yoga started as another form of exercise and evolved into self-discovery. My practice helps me accept myself, push myself, and definitely makes me a better person.
I can't live without my husband and son, my hilarious and loyal girlfriends, yoga, sunshine.
My happy place s under a cozy blanket, eating a great meal with my love, doing anything with Theo (my son), chatting/laughing with friends, a HOT yoga class, my porch when it’s warm with coffee or wine (depending on the time of day).
Community is coming together as a group with similar interests and beliefs, all working toward a common goal and supporting each other along the way.
I found fitness growing up in an active family. I've always been passionate about fitness and knew it was something I needed to share with people which is why I finally made it my career. I'm so lucky I can say "I love my job".
I can't live without coffee and being around people.
My happy place is being with my family.
Community is a supportive system that encourages one's own path.
In class I hope you feel Ease, Positive & Smiley
My yoga journey started After seeing my father practice yoga my entire life, I wanted to be able to stand on my head too! My dad was my first teacher who taught me how to build strength through my breath. Yoga teaches me the art of life and I am beyond grateful for it.
I can't live without My nephews! And Porch coffee!
My happy place is After a long run:)!
In my class, I hope you'll feel connected, seen, and a little lighter.
I can't live without yoga, sunshine, my sisters, and a good book.
My happy place is Lake Erie
Community is a place to feel connected, at home, and a place you can be yourself. all of it.
In class I hope you'll feel ready to take on the world, soft, and curious.
My yoga practice has changed throughout the years. The initial draw of a physical practice transformed into a self-investigation. Through yoga and life,I am on a journey to discover authentic purpose and the evolution of self. I have an optimistic lens and a deep drive to make the world a better place for others.
I can't live without: go figure, my sisters.
My happy place is stuck in good laughter.
Community is a sense of belonging
In my class you'll feel welcome, confident, informed
My yoga journey began at college in the mid 80’s in a sweaty, crowded lecture room with smelly feet next to my head in savasana. I don’t remember much about those classes, primarily how I felt afterwards. My practice picked up and became regular when I was a young mother of two, needing a way to recharge. I practiced Iyengar yoga during that time. When my Iyengar teacher retired I branched out, trying many styles of yoga. Eventually I settled into vinyasa yoga and completed my 200 hour teacher training in 2010 with Mitchel Bleier. After teaching for a few years, I realized there was so much more I wanted to know, so I enrolled in Yoga on High’s 300 hour advanced teacher training in Columbus. I was immediately drawn to learning more about anatomy, alignment and therapeutic applications of yoga. Towards the end of my training, I gravitated toward the subtle body - pranayama, yoga nidra meditation and Reiki. I finished my 300 hour advanced teacher training in the fall of 2017 and am still humbled at how much I don’t know and the magnitude of what yoga has to offer.
I can't live without ginger!
My happy place is anywhere with my family
Community is bringing people together. While we are all completely unique individuals, it feels good to be surrounded by like-minded people. There's something to be said about finding something you love and then meeting someone who loves it as much as you do and having that "You too? I thought I was the only one!" moment.
In my class you will feel Balanced, curious, and empowered.
I began yoga to stretch. I was a very tight personal trainer and someone said yoga would help me touch my toes (It worked!). I quickly fell in love with the practice after a few very sweaty and hot classes. Yoga was stretching my muscles but it also started to stretch my perceptions. It is in my nature to share things that I love so it didn't take long for me to want to become a yoga teacher. My 200 hour training changed the direction of my life and career forever and I became a full time yogi. I cannot be more grateful to do what I love while helping others feel good in their bodies and minds.
I can't live without Music and coffee.
My happy place is not so much a place, it is my state of mind in all places. I can choose to be happy or miserable and honestly I've chosen both many times. Obviously, choosing to look at the bright side is always a better choice. So I can be content alone in a coffee shop with a book, at a rock concert, or standing in line at the grocery store (food yay!).
Community is something that we create, that we become a part of that includes like minded people. People with similar intentions, interests and goals are welcome. A safe place for them to explore whatever it is they are interested in and a place where creativity shines.
In class I hope you feel Strong, present and accepted.
My yoga journey began after I underwent surgery to correct scoliosis. The surgery left me with 13 spinal fusions, two titanium rods one on each side of my spine and several screws and pins. My practice began as a home practice to prevent long-term pain and help rebuild my core strength. I fell in love with the practice, graduating from Cleveland Yoga’s first Teacher Training in 2008. In 2012, I was invited to study with Jonny Kest and participate in two additional 200-Hour teacher trainings that prepared me to begin leading teacher trainings under Jonny Kest for Life Time Fitness. I traveled around the US assisting Jonny at conferences and Wanderlust Tahoe.
I can't live without: Elmer!
My happy place is: On the beach with my loved ones!

Community is: somewhere that you feel like you belong. UNITY is the second half of the word commUNITY so it's somewhere you feel a oneness with self and others.
In my class I hope you feel: relaxed, balanced, present.
I found yoga during a time in my life that I was working a commission job and feeling stressed. It was my escape and I eventually wanted it to be my full time gig rather than part time escape. The dream kept itching at me. The itch continues as we seek to continue to grow this place we call 3 SISTERS with heart & soul. Lucky me.
My happy place is a hot bath with a bath bomb followed by an early bedtime, a beach, a rainstorm, a delicious dinner, a warm cup of coffee, oh so many experiences in life to cultivate happy!
Community is connection, support, love, laughter and great conversation
After my class I hope you feel alive, empowered, inspired and heart wide-open
I can't live without Yoga, golf, avocados, books and the love and support of my family and friends
I began yoga reluctantly. I was dealing with severe anxiety and panic attacks and it was suggested by my therapist that I try yoga and meditation. I have never look back! Yoga and meditation saved my life!!
My happy place is on a golf course with my husband
John attended his first yoga class in his mid fifties at the encouragement of his daughters. He fell in love with the physical workout that he got in hot powerful flow classes. It wasn't long though before he realized the mental benefits of a consistent practice and he enrolled in yoga teacher training. John graduated from Marni Task's Jivasara Teacher Training in 2014.
I hope people feel: happy, light, easy and peaceful.
Community is collaboration over competition, where magic can happen.
After my class I hope you’ll feel a sense of playfulness as well as your own personal power.
My happy places are with loved ones (including our dog Corky), out in nature, on a yoga mat, sharing time, food, wine, and laughs with good people. (these are many things I can’t live without too!)
I began yoga reluctantly and with a dear friend’s encouragement. I took classes in Canada back in 2010 to help alleviate stress & anxiety from a life lacking any semblance of balance. It felt like coming home from the very first class-something new, exciting, and scary, all at the same time. After moving to the USA in 2014 (two weeks after my mother passed away from cancer), I immersed myself into the practice. Yoga helps me move through grief, pain, joy, change, and so much more. Yoga gently whispers ‘yes you can’.Thanks to yoga I continue to learn how to get out of my own way!
Community is feeling connected and at home with a group of people for whom you care and care for you, just as we are.
In my class you'll feel unconditionally supported, rejuvenated and relaxed in body and mind, challenged & empowered.
I took my first yoga class at Hyland Software with Deirdre Wenzel followed by Shari Carroll at 3 Sisters. I started yoga for the first time a few months after 3 SIsters opened in August of 2014, after John and Lauren did a Lunch and Learn at Hyland
in October 2014 where I won a yoga mat. By September 2015 I was in teacher training and graduated from Marni Task's Jivamukti and Anuara Yoga inspired 200hr program in May 2016. While I started yoga almost exclusively for the physical practice, in large part due to Marni's influence and through immersions with Sharon Gannon and David Life, founders of Jivamukti Yoga, I have found myself sliding to a more spiritual practice where meditation has become the centerpiece of my yoga practice.
I can't live without family, my yoga community, my plant-based community
My happy place is on my mat in Marni Task's yoga class. Or perhaps that minute after savasana and the final om or namaste right before everyone starts to leave the room - that quiet moment right after you finish meditation
In my class I hope you feel stronger, at peace, and calm
Community means connecting with the people around you and sharing energy.
I can't live without my family, coffee, and essential oils
My happy place is my home and on my mat.
Yoga Shred became a part of my life when I was finding it hard to make time to both practice yoga and get my heart pumping and get a cardio workout in.
My favorite quote is “Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.”
Yoga is a journey of self-discovery. Everyone walks their own unique path in this life - the practice of yoga helps the yogi to uncover their own truth so they can peacefully live within it.
After my class I hope you'll feel enlightened, loved, connected and alive!
Community means that we live to serve and connect with one another. All individuals within a healthy community acknowledges themselves in everyone else and perpetuates love and kindness throughout.
Three things I can't live without my breath, my acceptance & my purpose OR more tangibly... nature, music & art.
My favorite food is knowledge (ok, that was too yogi of an answer even for me, haha.) Dark Chocolate (the purer the better!!!)
