KARA

​Kara found yoga and her passion for teaching in 2012. She discovered how transformational yoga is when you have the right teacher, and before she knew it she completed her 200hr yoga teacher training through Raja Hot Yoga in Clarksville, Tennessee. Her favorite part of teaching is watching her students transform both mentally and physically. Every person is on their own journey and has to take their own path; she believes that is what makes life so unique and beautiful. Her key phrase in class is to listen to your body, since only you know how far you can push yourself and when it's okay to challenge yourself a little extra. She wishes to help everyone become whole again by connecting the mind, soul, and body through yoga practice and meditation.


MISSY
Missy has more than five years of experience as a cardiac nurse. She rediscovered yoga after starting her nursing career as a way to recharge in a profession that can be physically, mentally and emotionally taxing. Yoga helped Missy find balance --mind, body and spirit-- in order to best serve her patients and family. Realizing the benefits of yoga, and wanting to help others find the balance she had found through yoga, Missy completed 200 hour teacher training at Kanyakumari Ayruveda and Yoga Wellness Center. Her experience in the training only enhanced her desire to share yoga with others. Missy's compassionate, patient and encouraging nature as a nurse transfers into her teaching style. She believes yoga is an individual path of growth and she is passionate about helping others on their personal path.
