Allison Bergson

Studio: Pulse Power Yoga, Sacramento, CA
Style: Vinyasa 

Philosophy: We control our breath and we control our thoughts. Teaching yoga, is giving students power over their breath and the ability to reflect over the way they chose to perceive their experience on the yoga mat. The way we choose to perceive our experience on and off the mat is directly connected to our breath. We are all capable of changing our thought patterns if we are willing to make a conscious decision to do so.

Ami Adamski

Studio: Advanced Holistic Health Southgate, MI
Style: Vinyasa

Philosophy: Healing happens through connection with the deepest part of who we are. I incorporate fun and smiles into each class. Through assisted yoga postures, guided breathing, and non directive dialogue I give students the opportunity to experience a connection to their physical and emotional selves. Often times, creating a release, personal growth, awareness, and deep healing. I feel we are living our lives through our yoga practice. Our attitudes on our mats often match our attitude in everyday life. In many of my classes we push to our physical edge by nurturing where we are in the moment.

Caitlin Taylor

Philosophy: I believe that each student should greet their insecurities with compassion. It's important for my students to understand that every body is different and that comparison is both a thief and a liar :) I want students to understand that their practice will differ from day to day, and that any discrepancies or weaknesses they might find within are not to be judged, only witnessed. There is a light within us all, and yoga can help us discover that.

Eva Boccio

Studio: Absolute Yoga, Woodbury, NY
Style: Vinyasa

Philosophy: I believe yoga can be practiced by all. Arm balances, inversions and yoga in bikinis on surf boards are not necessary for internal bliss. The yoga world has become exploited and people are afraid to try yoga because of the media's portrayal. I seek to bring yoga to all and show them that there are many different types, reminding them that asana is only one limb of the practice.

Fernanda Grisetti

Studio: Spirit Studio, Basel, Switzerland
Style: Vinyasa and Yin Yoga

Teaching Philosophy: As a yoga teacher, I recognize that yoga is a life-long practice, not a destination, and as such, I view my role as a guide for students to delve inward and connect to their deep center. My personal practice is inspired daily by my husband, son, and dog, who remind me every day what it means to live a life full of love and joy.

Gabrielle De Burke

Studio: Dragon Spirit Arts, Lansdowne
Style: Fusion of Taoist & Vinyasa Yoga

Philosophy: I work to inspire my all my students to honor limitations, while challenging them at the appropriate level to be in the present moments of their practice. While I am teaching, I believe that I am always going to be learning from my students and life, as it unfolds. I do not believe that because I have teaching certifications or the ability to facilitate teacher training certification programs as an ERYT 200 that my learning is over, so I keep training with insightful teachers so that I may continue to develop the ability to inspire students.

Hania-Khuri Trapper

Studios:  Universal Power Yoga is in Norwood, Massachusetts
Open Doors Westwood, MA

Teaching Philosophy: Having always appreciated the physical and spiritual aspects of yoga, I began my own serious practice after having two children and starting my own business. Yoga allowed me to really connect with my center and gain focus throughout the demands of my life. As a graduate of the Open Doors 200 hour Power Yoga Teacher Training Program and Reiki Level One, I am thankful to all of my teachers and mentors over the years (including my children who have taught me the most). Teaching not only allows me to deepen my own practice, but to share the joy that comes with finding one’s truer self with others. I fully believe that every person could benefit from a yoga practice. And I feel so very grateful to be able to share the gift of yoga with others.

Irene Alda

The message is:  Yoga allows us to play, learn, explore, fall,  get up, sweat, appreciate, shake, listen, surrender, evolve, let go, breath, experience, imagine, create, rediscover, flow.

Jacqui Shive

Teaching Philosophy: I often tell my students that Yoga can be sincere and profound but it doesn't have to be somber.  There are times that invite us to explore our deepest thoughts and then there are times for child-like laughter and sometimes those times are one in the same.

Teaching Philosophy:

Remain Open
I tell all my students...Yoga is for everyone and Everyone starts somewhere!
It's not always about what the posture "should" look like, focus instead on how the pose FEELS to you and your body. Everybody is different & what's right for one person's body may not be right for another. Honor your body and its limitations. Keep in mind that yoga is a practice, a personal practice, that is constantly evolving & expanding if you allow it to.
Remember this motto: "Much practice brings progress" Hari Aum Tat Sat

Dr. Kimberly Richter

Studio: Flow Yoga, Bushland Beach, Queensland, AU
Style: Power Vinyasa

Philosophy: I believe yoga should be accessible and enjoyable to everyone. I believe in making yoga fun and taking the ultra-seriousness out of it. That's not to say the real purpose of yoga isn't deep, just that it doesn't need to always be practiced with seriousness. I also believe each yogi knows his or her own body better than any teacher ever will, and to truly appreciate and gain optimum benefits from yoga, one must tune in to his or her own innate sense.


Megan Daley

Studio: Dancing Waters Yoga
Style: Ashtanga Vinyasa


Side by side, through instruction, I challenge my students to experience and grow in the art of letting go and listening. While their practice is THEIR practice, I hope they can find a balance between doing and listening; moving into each pose with full intention, connecting mind and body. Maintaining the philosophy of yoga through disciplined breathing and conventional asanas, my teachings offer a blend of traditional and modernized sequencing; lending the freedom to play, flow and move, while fueling a personal fitness regime.

From Vinyasa Yoga, a powerful, fluid and playful practice to Hatha Yoga, a deep and intentional, breath oriented class, I encourage everyone to adopt a style that speaks to them. Ultimately, what I hope, is that each student, myself included, recognizes how strong and magnificent they are, always growing and inspiring those around them.


Irina Nordstrom

I believe life is a personal journey and my goal is to encourage growth and understanding of the self through yoga, where students can create a vision, discover their own sense of spirituality and find a holistic balance in their everyday lives. I am as much a student as I am a teacher, embracing the process all along the way. We should all take a moment, close our eyes and just breathe.

Kaitlin Morris

Style: Forrest Yoga

Philosophy: I believe in evidence-- I want scientific, measurable proof that yoga is working to improve the body, mind, and soul.

I believe in humor, in celebrating everybody's abilities and gifts, and in finding one's authentic self to live life fully.

Philosophy: I opened my own studio because I wanted to reach people on a deeper level. I didn't want to just operate under others' philosophies, but I wanted to create a place that was exactly what I wanted. What I am most proud of about what I have created is the community and family atmosphere that I have fostered in my studio. My teaching philosophy goes beyond just teaching a class and permeates into all of my interactions with my clients. I want to create a safe and warm place where people can challenge themselves and push past what they thought was possible. I believe in making people feel valued and cared for and seek to help them become the best versions of themselves while realizing that they are capable of much more than they ever knew. 

Lauren Peterson

Style: Hatha and Stand UP Paddle Yoga

Philosophy: My objective as a yoga instructor is for my students to be able to feel safe and comfortable enough to let go of any drama or stress they might have had, the moment their souls/soles touch their mat...that my students leave my class with their mind body, and soul replenished and strengthened to take on the rest of their day or week.

Studio: Yogamaya New York NYC, Stanton Street Yoga NYC, Yoga On The Rocks NYC
Style: Vinyasa

Philosophy: Yoga is a doorway and a pathway that helps us deal with the issues we face both within ourselves and in the world around us. It's a chance to realize that everything we need is inside of us: motivation, comfort, energy, etc. My goal as a teacher is to help students realize that they hold the answers to their own questions and that everything we seek is within us in some way, shape or form. I also encourage fun, laughter, and new ways into some of the harder poses (I LOVE making the seemingly difficult become accessible!)

Natalie Snyder

Studio: Zen Yoga Nicaragua, San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua
Style: Vinyasa

Teaching Philosophy: I love slow movements, connecting breath and awareness with the entire body and mind. I'm a true believer that salt is a natural medicine, so I love to bring the tropics to you and influence a hot and sweaty, detoxifying atmosphere. When teaching in the tropics, it's important to focus on keeping the heat & that personal light lit, so a constant reminder in my classes is important in order to keep the inspiration present.

Regina Brown

I am also passionate about Introducing yoga to non-practitioners in order to share my love of the practice and to have the opportunity to watch them grow as a result.

Style: Vinyasa, Integral, Restoratives

Philosophy: I try to spread the joy and love of yoga to as many people as will let me. I'm strongly about bringing the practice to meet people where they are and uncovering the illusion that we have to already be what yoga tries to teach us. I like to tell my students "We practice SO that we can, not because we can."

Stacey Shanks

Studio: Tri-State Yoga Studio Evansville, IN
Style: Hatha

Philosophy: My yoga philosophy is about practice on and off the mat. I believe that yoga is so much more than the asanas. I want to make yoga accessible to more people and share yogic philosophy whenever I can. It's not about having the perfect yoga body, doing the most challenging pose or eating a certain way, it's about asking and searching for the answers to some of life's most important questions. Why are we here? What is our purpose? How can we serve?

Stephanie Gupana

Style: Ashtanga

Teaching Philosophy: For my asana classes (private and corporate), I teach an all-levels class accessible to everyone that decides to practice. It's very humbling for me to teach this way since I enjoy very challenging personal practice. But, the reality is, not everyone wants to do arm balances or inversions and some students just want a place to come into their bodies and breathe. I'm honored to provide that for them. For my weekly meditation classes, I tell my students before we start the session that this is a safe space of no judgement and a place where we can use the energy from others to find the voice within us that uses no words. I serve my students by doing my absolute best to connect with on a very basic human level; understanding that I am there to serve them and help them find peace on their mat.

Andrew Papke

Studio: Nour Yoga - Mombasa, Kenya

Style: Hatha


My philosophy is that yoga practice has a lot to offer everyone. What I as a teacher give to my students covers all elements physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. Through asana, students achieve physical and emotional balance, which gives way to greater mental clarity and eventually deeper spiritual connections. I love having students open up about their yoga experiences and the benefits they receive.
