Amy Craddock I have been teaching yoga for eight years and practicing for 11 and it has changed my life on many levels. I believe that your breath your body and your mind are all connected and that through the practice of yoga, we gain a greater awareness of the spirit within each of us. I am grateful for this practice and to share it with others, enriching and bringing peace and harmony to everyday life.​​​​​​​

Betti Buck as an educator, I am driven by a passion to teach, help, demonstrate, and motivate others to learn. As a certified fitness professional, I teach a wide variety of formats as well as provide the knowledge, support, and tools to achieve desired results.  My love for fitness began 16 years ago when I started as a Zumba instructor, personal training and group exercise instructor. I opened a studio in Ohio where I helped hundreds of people achieve their fitness goals. I have come to witness that the one thing that holds many people back from adherence to exercise is limiting beliefs, so I became a Master NLP coach to be of better help.  Along the way I have ventured with NPC BodyBuilding competitions, through which I’ve learned much more about discipline. Whether you join my step class, strength, metabolic conditioning, HIIT, bootcamp, Pilates, dance, or circuits - I promise a glow (sweat) that will make you grow (muscles).

There is no better place to meet friends, laugh, sweat, move and find encouragement than in group exercise.  My love for movement began with running, dance and yoga as a youth and now I get to enjoy sharing how joyful physical activity can be with others.  I have been in the fitness industry for over 15 years.  I'm a certified mental health first aid instructor, personal trainer, group fitness instructor, stretch coach and yoga teacher.  A few other modalities that I teach are dance, pilates, barre, strength, mobility, trx, bootcamp, and kickboxing.  Let me show you how fun it can be to work out! 

Jahnavi Pattabhirama
Eight years ago, my path was illuminated by the ancient discipline of yoga, leading me to specialize as a Yoga Instructor with a unique focus on Diabetes management. My foundational steps began in 2014 when I embarked on a comprehensive Yoga Instructor’s Course. This was soon deepened with a rigorous two-year Yoga Therapy Training from the esteemed SVYASA institution. Since that transformative period, I've had the privilege of guiding diverse individuals, spanning various age groups and backgrounds, on their own yogic journeys. My teaching ethos respects and celebrates diversity, ensuring that every class is a sanctuary of inclusivity. Rooted in this principle, I adopt an adaptive methodology, tailoring yoga postures to resonate with and benefit each unique student. It's my heartfelt mission to help every student harness yoga's transformative                                         power, guiding them toward their healthiest and most vibrant selves.

Jiji Oh "I moved to the USA from Sydney, Australia in 2012.  I have a huge passion for fitness as part of well being and self care.  To take care of others, you must take care of yourself first.  I wasn't so into fitness in my 20s, but now it has become a habit I have cultivated and explored!
