Natasha began practicing Yoga in 2009 after a bad knee injury playing collegiate basketball. She decided to seek her certification because she felt an uncontrollable urge to treat people to the endless gifts that Yoga had given her – the presence, the tuning into oneself, the exploration, the fun, the body awareness, breath, intention. Natasha has training in various aspects of Yoga including Kiran, Pranyama, philosophy, meditation and different Asana styles. She strives to make Yoga accessible and approachable to everyone. In addition to her Vinyasa based 200hr certification Natasha is also certified in Yin Yoga and Reiki Energy Healing. When not in the studio she serves in her capacity as the co-founder of Impact Hub Houston, curating a community of change makers in our city. She also works in her family business, Caspian Enterprises, which develops and restores historic buildings into multi-family and commercial spaces primarily in East Downtown.
Nikki began practicing Yoga to rehab a knee injured in a dance performance. She has since expanded her knowledge and practice to include meditation and the spiritual aspects of Yoga. Given her background and continued practice as a dancer, Nikki has explored the similarities between Yoga and Dance, as a method of injury prevention for dancers, but also as a way for each practice to enhance the other. As she says, “Yoga is a dance to me that can be carried on and off the mat.” In addition to her work as a professional Yoga instructor, Nikki is a Mindful Mediation facilitator and a writer. Her 200hr certification focussed primarily on Hatha and Pranayama.
Tiffany is a teacher from Columbus, Ohio who began practicing yoga in 2010 when seeking new ways to move and feel centered. She quickly fell in love with the practice and found opportunities to show up fearlessly both on and off the mat. With the courage of possibility, she chose to move across the country with her husband; the biggest deciding factor being “will we be close to a yoga studio?” Since their move, Tiffany’s passion for education and mindfulness through breath and movement began to fuse together; she assisted a kids program at a studio for a year and since earning a kids yoga certification she has led her own after school Yoga program. Tiffany completed her 200 HR yoga teacher training through the Houston area nonprofit In-Powered by One Significant Act, and is excited to continue to make yoga and mindfulness accessible to people of all ages by joining the EaDo Yoga Community!
Alicia dabbled in Yoga home video’s throughout high school but it wasn’t until about 2007 that she became really enthusiastic about yoga. Her first classes were through the local YMCA and she instantly fell in love with the euphoric feeling of mental clarity after class. Vinyasa Flow quickly became her favorite style of Yoga although her teachers came from various lineages such as Iyengar, Baptiste, and Forrest. Alicia has extensive knowledge of the human anatomy and Yoga illuminated the musculature in a totally new way for her. She received her RYT 200hr certification through Svasta Yoga School. She has been inspired by many teachers and their different styles and has taken workshops with Ana Forrest, Seane Corn, David Regellin, Kerri Verna, and Josh Summers. She teaches techniques that keep the mind calm while overcoming challenges by building strength and flexibility all while developing and openhearted presence to create a positive flow of energy.
