Jessica is a trained Kid’s Yoga teacher through Kidding Around Yoga and ChildLight Yoga. A kindergarten teacher by trade, she decided to go through official kid’s yoga training after having incorporated yoga practices into my every day classroom teaching for several years. After implementing yoga and mindfulness in her classroom, she immediately noticed a positive impact on my students' focus, self esteem, and social-emotional health. She expanded her teaching of yoga to kids beyond the school day, and thus began teaching kid’s yoga at local yoga studios since 2015 to children of all ages and developmental levels. She teaches kid’s yoga as an after school club to my kindergartners at the Olmsted Falls ECC, and loves seeing familiar faces from school join the COLY kid’s classes.

Josie began to truly deepen her yoga practice at a time when it was needed in her life. Perhaps, yoga found her rather than she found yoga. Josie graduated from John Carroll University in 2017 with a bachelor’s degree in mathematics and a minor in business. She began to enhance her yoga practice as a post-graduate.

While initially realizing its physical benefits, Josie noticed that yoga benefited her mentally and spiritually as well. She received her RYT-200 certification through the Carrie Treister School of Yoga in May 2018. Josie’s intent is to help others receive the same benefits that yoga has provided for her. As a teacher, she believes it is her purpose is to make yoga fun and appealing to all through movement, music, and meditation. Whether it be the beginning of a student’s yoga journey or just a step towards deepening one’s practice, Josie loves to be a part of her students’ growth.

Alina’s yoga journey began in 2013 and from her first class she was hooked by its magical healing abilities. As the years progressed her love for yoga grew and her thirst for a deeper understanding grew as well. In 2016, she took a trip to this beautiful city Samana in Dominican Republic where she spent a week connecting with the earth and herself. The experience was ethereal. For that week the jungle became her home. She lived in a tree house where the healing abilities of the tropical rainforest became her reality. What she found was a desire to share the healing abilities of the rain, sun, sand, and lush forest with the world. These were the blessings which this experience brought to her and she can think of no better way to share them than through the practice of yoga. It is through the practice and teaching of yoga that she tries to bring spiritual, physical, and mental healing to her students and the world.
Yoga brings her to a state of the most serene peace and she is here and ready to share it with her beautiful students.
