jenna

Jenna Bey Weston

Jenna began her yoga journey in 2002 after the birth of her third child. She was drawn to the athleticism, strength and grace of the practice. Yoga has helped her learn presence, patience, how to breathe, to listen to her body and self-love. She has been teaching various fitness classes for over a decade and in 2015, received her 500 RYT certification from the Prana Lab in Weston in order to share her practice with others. Jenna teaches an approachable but challenging alignment-based flow. Students are empowered to explore practices that fit their bodies rather than conforming to external ideas about what a posture should look like.

Kim Colletti

Kim Colletti Ft. Lauderdale

Everyone begins their yoga journey for different reasons, and Kim’s began as a tool for injury recovery. As a collegiate rower, she sustained a back injury that never seemed to heal. After committing to Physical Therapy and a few cortisone shots, Kim was on my way to recovery but eventually hit a plateau. That’s when she tried yoga. Kim immediately fell in love with the practice and have been dedicated ever since.

About three and a half years ago, Kim became much more serious about her commitment to yoga and have been practicing daily. Not only has her body grown stronger with each session, but Kim’s back has also seen an incredible improvement.

With each unique journey, comes a unique style of teaching. Kim is particularly affected by and interested in adjustments and alignments as a focus of her practice and teaching. As a community, we are all able to learn from each other’s journeys, and Kim is always open and interested in learning from her students and teaching peers.

Everyone has their own path and process. The best thing that people should come to terms with in Kim’s opinion, is using others as inspiration and information rather than comparison and judgment.

Shay Doytier

Shay Doytier Ft. Lauderdale

SHAY is known for her light-hearted energy and passionate dedication to the yoga practice. Teaching since the age of 17, Shay creates organically dynamic flows, which intermingle with her characteristic playfulness. She believes that the breath is the body’s “natural medicine”, and creates her sequencing from that notion. A warm yet challenging class, she creates a space for students to play and explore their bodies in the yummiest way.. ” I love any and everything cats, tats, insects, sunshine, movement, handstands, fears, weird creatures, vegetables, loud music, the ocean, soup, shiny objects, energy, body parts, trees, laughing, breathing, living…”

Carole Driscoll Weston

I started practicing yoga consistantly in 2002. Back then my 5 children were all under the age of 15, and both my mom and dad were dying, so yoga became my lifeline. For 90 minutes every day, I was able to recharge my batteries, to focus just on me. It was during this time that the phrase “put your own oxygen mask on first” took on a whole new meaning! Physically, yoga gave me confidence in my own body. I had always been terrified of heights, and trying anything new. After a year of yoga, I was able to parasail, and to go skiing. I knew I was strong enough, flexible enough and balanced enough to try anything I wanted.

Initially I took Jimmy Barkan’s teacher training strictly as a physical challenge – I was in my 40’s and wanted to see if I could handle two hot classes, posture clinics and morning sun salutations on the beach. No way was I interested in teaching. (I was also afraid of speaking in public!). But after learning philosophy, history, anatomy, Sanskrit etc., I found my passion, and there was no way I could not teach! Less than a month after I was certified, I was teaching at Jimmy’s studio in Plantation, as well as managing there.  I went on to take my advanced training with him, eventually becoming a 500 hour EYRT through Yoga Alliance.

My classes are fun (life can be stressful, yoga isn’t), non-judgemental (it’s never about what you can’t do, focus on what you can), and accessible to everyone, from your first class to your 500th class. I believe in checking your physical and emotional condition, and paying attention to it. If you’re tired, or sad, take an extra child’s pose (or 2 or 20). If you feel strong, throw in an extra chataraunga (or 2 or 20)!  The key to yoga is learning to work with your breath, and to surrender to the postures. If you try to muscle your way through, you’ll only get stuck.  I believe in positive, upbeat music – everything from Pink Floyd, Jimmy Cliff and Genesis to Linkin Park, James Taylor and Pink.  Even Pitbull has been known to find his way onto my playlists!

My philosophy is to remember that when life becomes too overwhelming, all you need is a chance to step back, close your eyes, and just breathe. We are strong enough, smart enough, powerful enough to handle anything that comes our way with grace, dignity and a sense of humor.

sean

Sean Greentree Weston Ft. Lauderdale

200 hour ryt under Bea Raydo. several hundred hours of asana and meditation in Rishikesh India. Practicing Breakdance Parkour Martial Arts as well as multiple other competitive sports. I am very familiar with movement especially expressive movement. I originally began to practice yoga in 2010 to work through some sports injuries. I found that not only was I able to work through these pains, but also strengthen them find once again my alignment. More important then the healing is the expansion of presense that already was within me.

Yoga compliments all of my other “play”, but this is all a side effect from the breathe and the presence that we focus on during our asana or Mindful Moving Meditation. With a class influenced by Raja Ashtanga Hatha Yin you will open all energetic channels in the body, and working with the breathe will bring you ever more present. I am honored to guide and practice with my students.

Krista R. Herrera Weston

In my heart and for as long as I can remember, I have been a teacher regardless of the content, the subject, or the age of the student. “Teaching is what I do and who I am. It has always been my inner calling.” A dedicated, conscientious teacher and fitness devotee, I strive to live an authentic life regardless of my circumstances.

I hold a Bachelor’s Degree of Science in Physical Education with an emphasis in anatomy and physiology and a Master’s Degree in Administrative Leadership. Additionally, and most importantly, I am a wife, a mother to three grown daughters and “Ammie” to six beautiful grandchildren! With my educational background and life experience, I have merged my love for life and wellness with my professional ability to guide others to become their personal best.

I am a 30 ‐ year educator and administrator who has always desired to teach, inspire and motivate others. Today, I use yoga as the medium to teach valued principles, not just poses. I believe “our yoga practice is a metaphor for everything we work through in life, ” and strive to emanate this through my practice and instruction.

Teaching yoga allows me to stay connected and open to what life has to offer. “It has taught me to breathe and to have a sense the all is well and as it should be.”

In 2015 he began teaching and spent much of his career in south Florida as well as some classes and workshops in Chicago. The aim of his yoga practice is to unite breath and movement so as to achieve a heightened self-awareness in both mind and body.

Christine Lewis

Christine Lewis Ft. Lauderdale

My Yoga journey began in 2002 when I realized the powerful physical and spiritual transformation that occurs through the Yoga practice. I began teaching Yoga in 2009 to encourage students to embrace the power of positive thinking to create a loving relationship with their Self on the Yoga mat, knowing that Self-love enhances their contribution to their communities and to the global collective consciousness. Yoga transformed my life over the last decade by strengthening my sense of Self and my physical body, so I am inspired by my own spiritual evolution to share the gift of Yoga with the world.

I purposefully structure the sequencing of postures during each class to rejuvenate mind, body, and spirit by addressing all imbalances and discomfort in the body to relieve pain, tension, and anxiety. The Vinyasa flow I share with students uses the power of the breath to stimulate the Chakras by combining the physically rigorous practice of the yoga asanas with a mental “work-in” that purifies and reinvigorates the soul. The Raja Deep Stretch Meditation class guides students through hip and shoulder opening sequences on the floor to permit gravity to do the physical work in relieving tension in the body while the student is free to close their eyes and vacation in the playground of the mind. Every year I lead life-shifting Yoga retreats in magnificent locations around the world that inspire participants to live a life defined by extraordinary happiness while making positive transformations in their daily lives and relationships.
