Yin Yoga

Peggy Breeze

Over 30 years ago I began to practice yoga. It opened my body and mind to the power that resided in me to shape my life, and led me to explore other aspects of health and fitness. Through the years, I’ve accumulated thousands of hours of hands-on experience and an extensive background in Yoga Asana, Yoga Therapy, Meditation, Ayurveda, Anatomy and Physiology, Nutrition, Pilates, and Exercise Science.

Julie Tijerina

I started practicing in 2007 when I was in my last year of college. I was looking for an inexpensive way to take the edge off my stress level while I was working full time and trying to finish my BFA.

I fell in love with yoga and with the idea of the mind/body connection and decided in 2010 to become an instructor. So, I dove into Teacher Training at Blue Anjou at the 200 hour level and then right back in for the 500 in 2011.

Alex Hamby, E-RYT

Everything I respect and love about the practice revealed itself to me pretty early on. Prior to yoga I'd spent my time in the gym where I lost 90lbs but, despite the positive benefits of cardio and weights, I failed to connect with what's important: the breath and the present moment. I am a Live Love Teach™ trained yoga instructor. Their style was the first I encountered and it resonated with me. I aspire to reveal in my classes those things I discovered on my mat and during my training. I teach a power vinyasa in such a way that those who practice can discover something different each time.

Lisa Breitenwischer HHC, E-RYT

I’ve been interested in health & fitness for most of my life and enjoyed running, playing tennis and attending the occasional yoga class. After completing my first (and last) marathon in November 2005, I decided to run less and devote more energy towards yoga, increasing my practice to 4-5 times per week. After several months of practice, I noticed my muscles became leaner, longer, and stronger and my mind became calmer and more focused. What began as a way of staying healthy and fit soon transformed into devotion and a way of life. I became a Certified Yoga Teacher in 2005.
