Judy has been practicing yoga for about twenty years. In 2003, she completed her first teacher-training program and was certified as a children’s yoga instructor. With 30 years of experience in the early childhood field, she was able to integrate the principles of yoga into her classroom. She saw the benefit of yoga for children completely change the dynamic of her groups. She has been holding after school yoga classes for children from ages three to 12, and adult classes for the last seven years.
Judy’s enthusiasm and commitment to yoga doesn’t stop with children. She has completed the 200-hour Yoga Alliance Approved program and is working on a 500-hour program.
She is certified in adult yoga (Levels 1 through 5), prenatal and postpartum yoga, and yoga for seniors. She has trained in anatomy and alignment.
Judy and her husband Carl have traveled extensively in Asia and have practiced yoga in India.
The spirit and emotional aspects of yoga are as important to Judy’s yoga practice and teaching as the physical aspects. She considers herself a life-long learner and is interested in everything that yoga has to teach her.

After decades of interest in yoga, with sporadic practice here and there, Ellen began regular practice in the early 90s. She has studied various lineages, including Viniyoga, Iyengar and Forrest yoga, and completed teacher training at Whole Life Yoga in 2007. With additional training in Pilates, core stability and balance are a key focus in her teaching. Ellen is guided by the theory that hatha yoga helps us to live in a pain-free body so we may cultivate mental clarity, awareness and stillness. To her, yoga is a lifelong, ever-evolving practice and study.

Sue is both a P.M.A.-certified Pilates instructor and an A.C.S.M. and A.C.E. certified personal trainer. Her business “Fitness Choices” focuses on Pilates, Personal Training, and Nutrition/Wellness. She has been working in the fitness industry for over 14 years.
Sue has been teaching Pilates classes since 2007 both on the traditional equipment and on the mat. Sue became interested in Pilates as she continued to be physically active while raising her family and looking for another mode of exercise to balance out the skiing, running, speed skating, yoga, etc., that she loved to do.
Her specialties include women’s fitness (pre- and postnatal exercise, an understanding of mid-life changes), cancer (especially breast cancer), injury rehab, and older-adult fitness as well as working with active adults and teens who are looking for cross-training for other activities or just to be physically balanced and develop and maintain strong cores.
Tiffany Blackburn is a registered yoga instructor, certified in Viniyoga by Tracy Weber through Whole Life Yoga’s 200-hour teacher training program in 2009. Tiffany dabbled in yoga throughout her life, trying many styles and acquiring many injuries. She decided to take a teacher training course in order to learn more about how yoga actually works on the body, hoping to keep herself safe from injury in the future. At the time, she never imagined herself teaching, but was unable to resist sharing her knowledge once she began learning the benefits of a regular practice on both the body and mind. She continues to train and learn, and now uses yoga and meditation to fight the effects of sitting at the computer for hours in her work as a graphic designer. More info is available at http://tiffanyblackburn.com/yoga. She loves Viniyoga for its gentleness, its ability to heal and strengthen, and its calming effect on the mind.
