Tracee Stanley has been studying Yoga and Tantra since 1995. A former high level executive in the film industry for over 18 years, she began sharing her understanding of the ancient technology of Tantra when her teacher Yogarupa Rod Stryker initiated her into the lineage of Sri Vidya in 2001. She found that these practices created a foundation of balance and clarity in the fast paced world of Hollywood and was inspired to open yoga studios to share the teachings.

Keri Honea has, in all honesty, not been practicing yoga for decades. She was talked into trying out yoga with a friend in 2014. Keri begrudgingly went, strongly believing that yoga was just a bunch of hippie dippie baloney. By her first class, she was HOOKED. A few months in, she wanted to be a teacher. Yoga completely changed her life. As such, she couldn’t keep it all to herself. She had to share yoga with others and hopefully change their lives the way only yoga can.

Melanie was inspired to try yoga in 2006 when training for a triathlon. Her instant realization that the practice went far deeper than just a way to tone led her to explore the philosophy and history of yoga. Melanie received her 200-hour RYT certification in 2012. The studies proved to be a ‘game-changer’ in her life; the first step was to open her heart to learn what made her ‘tick’ in order to live a life full of compassion, love and acceptance. Melanie will always think of herself as a student, always grateful for the lessons yoga teaches her each time she steps on the mat.
