RYT200 has been a student of yoga for many years and just loves this incredible practice. Her passion for this practice really grew after she was diagnosed with breast cancer and was fortunate enough to be able to take a breast cancer yoga class that was offered where she received treatment. Maureen truly believes that participating in this class allowed her to heal even quicker by training the brain to understand the mind and body connection. Maureen received her 200 hour training with Scott Feinberg at Kula Yoga Shala in 2011. She has been teaching since then in Adult Education programs with the Palm Beach County School District and also at a private retirement facility in Jupiter. Maureen teaches Gentle yoga, Basic yoga, and Chair yoga. Maureen believes anyone and everyone can participate in this practice regardless of size, shape, or limitations. If you can breathe, you can do yoga!

After moving to Florida, Dave became a certified SCUBA diver and found his way to yoga through a fellow SCUBA diver and part owner of a yoga studio. Breath and focus were the common links of these two activities, and yoga seemed to quickly become a new and important part of his life. And so began Dave's regular yoga practice for the next five years. After being encouraged to pursue the path of certified yoga instructor, he earned his comprehensive 200 hour certification in Kripalu yoga in 2007. The teacher training course unexpectedly awakened a spiritual side and a deepening awareness. Since then dave has taught at various venues in the West Palm Beach area, expanding his practice to incorporate vinyasa flow and power yoga in a fun, breath-centered adventure! A firm believer in the physical benefits of yoga, improving health, strength, posture, confidence and an overall well-being. Dave loves sharing yoga with all students, seeing them progress, and finding for themselves the joy it can bring. Namaste!
Tammy RYT200, LMT has been practicing massage therapy and skin care for almost half of her life. Her experience includes therapeutic and intuitive work, Chinese Medicine modalities as well as Thai yoga bodywork. She is a fitness enthusiast and has been leading indoor cycling classes for over 12 years and now follows her truth in her yoga teachings as well.
Tammy took her first yoga class about 18 years ago but it wasn’t until she embraced yoga teacher training, that it truly broke her heart wide open. That was when she realized how magical and powerful yoga transformation could really be.
The grace that comes from breath and movement, the release of deeply stored emotions and the calming of the nervous system are what draws her to the mat. The fact that she now has the opportunity to share and hold space for others to achieve their bliss and connect with their true selves is an honor.
Annika began her teaching career as a fitness instructor and personal trainer while attending university in the UK. After moving to America to pursue a career in TV, she got swept up in career, achieving, adventure, but got to the point of feeling totally burnt out. And just like everyone, Annika found yoga right on time! A chance to breathe and create some space! 3 months later she enrolled in teacher training (unable to touch her toes at the time!)
An interest in Reiki naturally developed for Annika, and has become a true passion. Working with individuals to feel, deal & heal with compassion and more with just a "little bit of help" from the universe!
Annika has since quit her stressful business, but keeping her toes dipped in the waters of TV working as a health & wellness spokesperson and now working towards the launch of a book and lifestyle website: F**k it! Just Breathe! (She grew up in England...they swear a lot!)
