Anne Hoffman, RYT 500
Through more than two decades of practicing, studying, and contemplating Yoga I have come to understand that Yoga is Life and Life is Yoga. Through the Yoga practice we come to accept and appreciate who we are in body, mind, and spirit. We friend and tend to our foibles, inner demons, and stumbling blocks that prevent us from living our Dharma - i.e. life purpose - we learn how navigate around or how to remove them - FINALLY allowing us to live a life filled with purpose, joy, and contentment. I am honored to share this amazing practice and path with anybody allowing you to be your true joyful self.

Carra Miskovich, RYT 500
Over the years, Carra experimented with various styles of yoga and one thing became infinitely clear: the more she practiced, the better she felt - on and off the mat, physically and emotionally. She discovered that yoga was, truly, an internal practice as it had changed her from the inside out. Amazed by yoga's healing capabilities, Carra was led to share the joy of yoga with others. As a heart based teacher, she believes in making yoga accessible to everyone, as yoga is for everyone. Gratitude, self-love, compassion, patience, happiness, and acceptance of self and others are some of the many themes woven into Carra's classes. Cara Miskovich is a registered yoga teacher (RYT 500) with Yoga Alliance, and has a B.A. in Psychology and a M.A. in Sociology. Her background in counseling, and passion for helping others, led her to the field of education where she currently serves as a faculty member at a local college.

Jeremy Thomas
Jeremy Thomas, Certified Master Teacher of Reiki, received his yoga teacher training through the Triad Yoga Institute in Greensboro. Trained in Design and Production techniques at NCSA, he has taken his love of structural engineering into the art of yoga. Jeremy's personal practice stemmed from the deep desire to heal his own body from a serious injury which had left him nearly crippled. Now, at the peak of his own physical fitness, he is primed to share the techniques which have helped him bring his body and mind into greater states of peace, harmony and alignment. The key to a successful practice, he feels, is in meeting the physical body's limitations with peaceful acceptance and moving fearlessly toward all possibilities through patient and persistent practice.

Nancy Thornton
Nancy Thornton loves to teach Ashtanga Yoga. This system of yoga presents an intelligent combination of postures and breath. As the class moves from sun salutations to standing, seated and inverted postures the breath slows down as the bodies heat up. Nancy currently studies with Matthew Sweeney of Australia who emphasizes the importance of using the breath as the link to move in and out of the postures, enhancing our physical, mental, and emotional well-being. A total hip replacement renewed my awe and wonder at the strength and symmetry inherent in yoga postures. I especially fell in love with the warrior poses. I went from crutches to blocks and still found no matter how remote I was from the original posture, my spine was singing!
