Laura Yell - Owner/Instructor E.R.Y.T 200 As a lifelong dancer, movement has always been an integral part of my life. I was first introduced to yoga in 2005, while pursuing my B.A. in dance and studied a variety of styles before finding my true passion after stepping into my first Hot Vinyasa Class. I immediately felt at home on the mat and fell in love with the dynamic flow, the heat, and grace of the practice. I completed my yoga teacher training in 2007 and since that time I have had the opportunity to lead more than 2000 classes. I am so grateful to all the teachers and students that inspired me along my journey. I am a true believer in the powerful benefits of yoga and am passionate about sharing its amazing transformative effects with everyone.
Marci Nuckolls - Instructor C.Y.T. 200 I started practicing yoga 10 years ago after finding I was passionate about Pilates. I thought the two were related from a physical perspective and really enjoyed the mind, body, and spirit connection that yoga had to offer. I practiced here and there during my college years but became serious about my practice about 5 years ago. My mat is my second home and I truly crave the time I can dedicate on it. I became an instructor to share my healthy obsession with the practice and found that through instructing, I also learn from my students as much as they learn from my teaching. I enjoy challenging myself and my students through vinyasa to cultivate patience, understanding, and strength both on and off the mat.
Kelly Steinberg - Instructor C.Y.T. 200 I started exploring yoga while in college as a means to relax and reduce anxiety. Over the next 15 years I would get on and off my mat, always loving what I learned but never fully committing to a steady practice. After having my second child, I realized how much I loved the physical aspect of yoga. My practice grew stronger as I grew stronger, in a physical and emotional sense. I completed my certification with Meg Galarza and Bernie Rosen with YogaOne. What an incredible experience. I love to teach. I love to learn. When I step on my mat I feel like I am learning so much from my students; it is a blessing. My style is strong, yet fluid. I love to challenge, yet honor the body. My own practice of Ashtanga yoga influences some of my teaching through connection to breath and movement. I am honored to call myself a yoga teacher.
Claire Kaleta - Instructor C.Y.T. 200 My yoga practice began several years ago, but my passion to teach developed over the winter of 2012 after spending four months in Costa Rica. I was inspired to bring the power and positive energy of my daily yoga practice back to my friends, family, and community. I completed my teacher training under Deborah Williamson of Live Love Teach in 2013. I believe that yoga practice has a place in everybody’s lives. My lifelong love of travel has inspired me to begin working towards making yoga more accessible to people of all backgrounds, cultures and communities. My classes are challenging and empowering, but most importantly we create a space together to cultivate confidence, meaning, and peace.
Karly Sopcic - Instructor C.Y.T. 200 After my first heated Vinyasa flow class in 2009, I became addicted. It was love at first asana! After running and playing high impact sports most of my life, yoga was like the missing secret ingredient. My education in Radiology fulfills my interests in studying the human body and its function. But I find my true passion in the mind-body consciousness of yoga. I completed my 200-hour certification course at Hot House Yoga in Iowa City, April of 2012. My two favorite aspects of yoga are finding happiness in the present moment and using breath with synchronized movement to gain strength and flexibility. I'm very eager to inspire others in their journey to a healthy body, strong mind and finding inner peace.
Jessy Fedie - Instructor C.Y.T. 200 I often think about what brought me to the practice of yoga. It is hard to list one specific event or individual who led me here. Instead the universe provided me with a chain of events and multiple individuals who brought yoga into my life. It’s almost as if yoga found me. Initially, I loved the way that yoga left me feeling. Healthy, balanced, calm, content, clear minded, strong, flexible, humbled and peaceful. Over a very short period of time yoga saturated my life. I fell in love with the fluidity and grace of Vinyasa Flow. Physical asana practice gradually led me into a deeper inward and spiritual practice. Yoga continues to teach me so much about myself and the world around me. Teaching yoga has brought me so much joy and fulfillment. My classes are fluid and fun Vinyasa Flow, accompanied by energizing musical playlists. I am always eager to share the knowledge I have gained about yoga with whoever is willing to learn. I want nothing more than to help others throughout their paths of life. For yoga is the driving force in which paves my path.
Kelsey Weaver - Instructor C.Y.T 200 I began practicing yoga in the summer of 2010, and soon discovered the strength and empowerment it created in my life both on and off the mat. My passion for yoga led me to complete my yoga certification with Deborah Williamson of Midwest Power Yoga and Live Love Teach™ in December 2012. I teach a powerful vinyasa flow class and try to bring calm and intensity to each class I teach, wanting every student to reach their full potential.
Erin Highland - Instructor C.Y.T. 200 I discovered yoga while studying abroad in Italy in 2007 and since then my yoga path has been ever evolving. After moving back to Milwaukee, I began a more vigorous and regular practice which led to a completing a 200-hour Vinyasa style teacher training in Maui. I was certified by passionate teachers Nadia Toraman and Karin Kuhn at the Maui Yoga Shala in Paia in 2012.
