Amanda Clark, also known as Amandaconda, is fiercely dedicated to bringing art and movement into the everyday. With an extensive background in gymnastics and ballet, this performance artist sees yoga as a way to increase self awareness, not only on the mat but throughout all of her interactions.
Amanda discovered yoga 15 years ago, and practiced sporadically until she completed her 200 hour Vinyasa Flow training under Jennie Ferrare at Magnolia Fitness, where she dove into self exploration through daily practice. She came to understand that there is always something to learn from teachers and students alike, and above all, appreciates the sense of accountability that comes from showing up for folks and sharing a practice. Amanda infuses a dancerly element into sequencing, finding that there’s always more to nurture and explore in movement. She believes that touches of vulnerability are worthwhile for the sake of acknowledging limits, eventually discovering room for further openness. Amanda seeks to nurture the mind with food for thought throughout the practice, and hopes that you leave the mat feeling grounded, awake and balanced.

Outside of my Barre and Yoga studios you can find me hanging out with my Toy Poodle ‘Zed’, dancing to live music, working on projects within communities that support teens in their environment — keeping teens healthy, safe, and drug free, playing a game of pickup basketball, watching football, making lasagna, exploring the outdoors, or finding a reason to celebrate and throw a party for someone.

Danielle has been integrating Thai Yoga Massage into her yoga teaching practice since her training with the Triple Gem School of Thai Massage since 2011. A yoga instructor since 2006, she was inspired to deepen her hands on work and has completed 3 levels of training, with widely renowned teacher Jennifer Yarro and continues to study and practice with her. Working closely with Jennifer for the last 8 years, Danielle has a deep respect and love for this healing modality. Her sessions are adapted to the needs of the client, and she incorporates her intuitive knowledge of what the body and soul need at any given time. She is also Level II Reiki attuned and incorporates this work into her sessions as guided. Her hopes are to serve her clients by helping them find balance, peace and deep release on the physical and energetic level and to have them tap into the unending flow of ‘metta” or loving kindness that is the base of the Thai Yoga Massage practice.

Kristine started practicing yoga looking to provide balance to an over active, busy life. Time on the mat allowed her to take her focus inward. Embracing as much of the teachings she could get her hands on, she knew she found her passion ~ a true seeker on a path. Eleven years later, she still is deeply driven by the many aspects of the practice and to embrace the next steps as they come.As a teacher, Kristine loves to share yoga and its teachings to all the other seekers out there. Some of many teachers that influence her are: Jacqui Bonwell, Shiva Rea, Roberto Lim, Heidi MacVane, Danielle Toolan, and Sagel Urlacher.
Kristine is a graduate of the Sacred Seeds Yoga School and is also Yin Yoga and Restorative certified. As a Reiki healer, she offers energy work that can be often found woven into her classes. Kristine’s classes are energetic, fun and informative. All levels are welcomed.
Certified 200 Yoga Yoga Instructor | Owner of Avril Williams Handmade
Avril has been called a Jill-of-all-trades as she not only teaches yoga, but is also a studio artist, art educator, philanthropist, entrepreneur, designer, and avid international traveler. In fact it was on her first solo, travel journey abroad that she found yoga, completely changing her life path. Divinely ending up on a small island in Thailand, she fell in love with the practice and its spiritual benefits so much so that she immediately flew to Bali, and eventually Costa Rica, to continue its exploration.Avril later graduated with her 200-hour certification from Island Yoga in Aruba under the mentorship of Rachel Brathen and Lara Heimann. She has since started several businesses, one of which uses her passion for education to share the meditative and holistic benefits of combining art-making, community, travel and yoga. She brings a mindful element of creativity that fills her life work to her classes and incorporates it into the sequencing, music and theme.
Avril also holds a B.A. in Art Education and has completed trainings in teaching mindfulness to children and yoga support for addiction recovery. In her spare time she enjoys making pottery, hiking, going on serendipitous adventures with her partner, writing poetry, expanding her businesses and learning new skills.
