Katie Beaver

Teaches: Power

At the College of Charleston, while studying for her degree in Sociology, yoga remained present in her life mostly on a physical basis. But after graduating, as she started exploring life as an “adult”, she felt her yoga practice transform into something more than just a movement routine. Yoga became a way for her to find deep connection and a sense of calm within. While practicing around town at many studios she soon realized she wanted to dive deeper into her yogi path becomeing a teacher in 2017.

Katie Edwards

Teaches: Align and Flow

Katie found massage therapy and bodywork when she suffered a knee injury that kept her from her yoga practice and doing other activities she loved. Bodywork, massage therapy and yoga helped her through the recovery process and she went on to go to the Pacific Center of Awareness and Bodywork on the island of Kauai in 2019. She believes that through movement and touch therapy we can all better understand the body – mind relationship and learn how to interpret the signals our body is giving us.

Julie Luisi

Teaches: Power

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.

Mimi Rose

Teaches: Align & Flow

I came to the yoga mat as a martial artist in the late 1990’s. I was seeking an ancient art that taught discipline and strength; a path that had a code of ethics and conduct but was imbued with a deep spirituality. Yoga appeared. It has fed me, sustained me, strengthened me, enveloped me, weakened me, taught me, exalted me and healed me.

Practice requires strength, discipline, commitment, self-acceptance and a willingness to let go and be present. I have been teaching since 2006.

As a Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapeutic practitioner, I have been a witness to profound possibilities that lie within human beings to heal. I feel an immense amount of gratitude for the gift of this work. 

The clear light of yoga shines through all the teachings I have received from many extraordinary teachers. My desire is to be of service to others as a reflection of the teachers from whom I have learned.
