Meet our Teachers
I grew up in Columbia and still have strong ties there. I live in Millersville with my wonderful husband, Mark. We have three very active children, Kate(11), Charlie(8) and Willow(5). Beyond yoga,I love fishing, baking and reading. I'm also a Registered Dental Hygienist. I received my 200 hour Teacher Training through Evolution Power Yoga(Baptiste style yoga).
I tried yoga 11 years ago and fell deeply in love. I had back problems and someone recommended yoga to me. At first it was so difficult and did not come easy to me. My poses were not what I saw in other's bodies. But then as time passed I realized that I was not them and my body was mine alone. Yoga ultimately became a safe haven for me to truly be myself with no judgement attached. It was a quiet time for me to reflect and let my guard down. My wish and intent to share that pure joy with others...
Krista is a Certified Yoga Teacher having completed her 200HR YTT under Gerhard Gessner at Prana Yoga Center La Jolla, CA. She is also an Usui Reiki Master attuned by Jenny Wright and Lisa Powers. Yearning to learn more, Krista became a meditation facilitator. She completed her training with The Meditation Initiative, founded by Jeff Zlotnik in San Diego, CA. She has also offered Seva at Sat Nam Fest, Shakti and Bhakti Festivals in Joshua Tree, CA. A York, PA native, Krista began her journey to wellness after surviving breast cancer, bilateral mastectomies, BRCA1 mutation and complete hysterectomy at age 32. She then began her mission to heal her body, mind and spirit. After visiting her daughter, Naomi, who had moved to San Diego, CA, Krista knew this was where she needed to start. She drove cross country with her dog, Tessa, and her car filled with the essentials and began making healing connections. She took her first yoga class as an offering through her employer. This was life changing for her. After suffering most of her life with depression and anxiety and later with chronic back pain and PTSD, she finally knew that Yoga was the key to open the door to her wellness journey. Since that first class, yoga has become an ever evolving way of life. Krista enjoys crafting of all sorts, cooking, gardening, being one with nature and dog sitting. Her passion is helping others learn how they can help themselves on their own journeys.
I knew from the very first class that not only did I want to practice yoga, I wanted to share the gift that yoga is with all others! The magic and nourishment presented by the instructor had touched me that deeply. I had dabbled in yoga here and there the fifteen years previous, practicing at home with video and books. Marital stress brought me back to the practice. Needing relief, I finally attended a class. This brought the practice and my life to a whole new level.
As breath is the foundation of our life, I believe breath is the foundation of yoga. Through my unique and somewhat challenging vinyasa with a touch of alignment style of teaching I encourage the “yoking” of the mind, body and spirit. I love the idea of waking my students up, encouraging them to dive deeper into a space of themselves that they may have not known even existed. That which lies beyond the physical. It is my hope that students bring concepts I introduce to them off the mat, and into their daily lives.
I received my RYT 200 hour teacher training under the Baron Baptist affiliated yoga studio, Evolution Power Yoga, here in Lancaster PA. Although my teaching style does contain some elements of this method, I have grown and evolved into my own expression as a teacher. I still continue to learn, and will always, in this practice, as to continuously provide my students with the best experience possible!
It is my goal, in the practice of teaching yoga, for students to recognize and honor the wisdom of the physical body through asana. I hope through the use of quotes, meditation, pranayama, and the introducing of yogic philosophy, students can be guided to move into a space of recognizing the vastness, the beauty, and the pure joy of their own essence, their true nature.
Hi! I’m Charlotte: yoga teacher and student, artist-creator, and business leader. My purpose and passion is to lift others up by creating space centered around yoga (mind, body, spirit asana or movement), art and play.
I first fell in love with yoga in a Penn State York kinetics requirement! There I found a sacred space on my mat where I could be myself and honor my body, mind and spirit and release all expectations of myself and others. This love continued after college and through my first pregnancy, with my oldest son, Isaac, as I found great comfort in my changing body through prenatal yoga.
After Isaac was born I forgot about yoga as motherhood consumed me. I reconnected with fitness right away as I was preparing my body to look “great once again” for my wedding following his birth – doing spin classes, Bodypump resistance training (even going for that certification!) and HIIT (high-intensity interval training). My body was strong but also very stressed.
Once again I turned to yoga. By this time I had forgotten myself and my passions and thought I had no purpose. Practicing yoga allowed me to find great peace, physical and mental strength, and spirituality – on and off my mat. Dedicating the time to move and honor mind, body and spirit has changed my life, in so many ways, and I want to share that same experience with others. Through yoga we slow down, open up, stretch and move – with focus and intention on breath – creating our own unique experiences.
I hope you find peace, awareness and joy.
Hi my Lexy, and my yoga journey began a little over 3 years ago after the tragic loss of my mother. I found solace in the practice, the movement and the breath of yoga. Yoga has become an important part of my daily life and something I want to share with others! I also love the outdoors, experimenting in the kitchen and traveling the world!
I am a baby boomer who likes to spend time with family, hike, garden, read, travel, & follow sports. In my years of work asan educator and hygienist in a public health setting, I have taught about disease prevention. For several years I explored yoga at home as a working mom of three busy kids. I became hooked on the release of tension in my neck, shoulders and back and the relaxed feeling that yoga gave me so it evolved into an essential part of my life. When my kids were grown, I began to practice at studios and felt the positive vibes of practicing with others and also heard many powerful stories of improved mental and physical health through yoga. When the opportunity arose to do the 200 hour yoga teacher training, I dove in to explore deeper into yoga and how to lead others to wellness.
My aim is to inspire you to improve your strength & balance through yoga poses and to empower your self-discipline and self-fulfillment through the meditation and mindfulness in yoga. I encourage you to explore the possibilities to be your best self and feel great. I am grateful for the opportunity to lead you in your personal yoga practice. Be well!
