Nicole Lennox

With a 200 hour certification in Vinyasa Yoga and a background studying Eastern Philosophy and Transpersonal Psychology, I aim for my teachings to create a sense of inner connection and mindfulness that can be taken off of the mat into our everyday lives. Influenced by my travels, teachers and experiences, I create powerful flows that incorporate creative sequencing, designed to bring us out of our heads and back into our bodies.

Julie Luisi

A movement practice has been a constant in Julie's life from a young age. As a young runner, she first discovered that meditation in movement could provide a deep feeling of peace and acceptance. Eventually, running led her to yoga as a way to support recovery and balance out her own competitive nature. Admittedly, it didn't immediately stick. It wasn't until she was introduced to power yoga, when she truly fell in love with the practice. After completing the Art of Assisting training program in 2016 through Baptiste Yoga as a way to deepen her practice and help others do the same, Julie decided to embark on her RYT 200 certification in early 2018 and has been teaching ever since.
