Yoga Instructors

Jeannine Wilson
Jeannine’s passion for yoga began the way it does for everyone else who has tried yoga: she felt great after practice, even after suffering a work-related injury. Wanting to help others receive the same benefits, she pursued and completed her 200-hour Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT®) certification three years ago—and hasn’t stopped since. With specialized training in Yin yoga and Stand-up Paddleboard certifications, Jeannine teaches a variety of empowering styles and practices that are sure to heal the body and mind.

Jeannine believes yoga is accessible to everyone, no matter what level of experience they have going in. If you have the chance to attend one of her classes—be warned—it’s going to be fun, light-hearted, and full of laughs!
Danielle Shepherd
Danielle began her yoga journey 8 years ago, taking classes where she could find them, and when life permitted. She quickly realized yoga's many benefits and was eager to learn more. Her enthusiasm to learn more hasn't stopped since!

She loves yoga in all its forms, but she's most passionate about, and has special certifications in, teaching kids and seniors. In fact, she says her certification in teaching yoga to seniors (including therapeutics like chair yoga) is her favorite yet.

Danielle knows that yoga offers a lifetime of learning and is a never ending journey. She sums it up with one of her favorite quotes from the amazing Kundalini Yoga teacher, Gurmukh: "Yoga isn't about self-improvement, it's about self-acceptance", something Danielle believes we all work towards everyday.
Lesli Clarke
Lesli began her yoga journey more than 20 years ago, taking a few classes here and there. Curious about what the world of yoga had to offer, she sampled styles ranging from ashtanga & sivananda to bikram and jivamukti before settling on her own blend of creative Vinyasa flow. In 2003, an instructor noticed Lesli’s enthusiasm and suggested that she consider becoming a teacher herself, and introduced her to YogaFit International. She teaches an invigorating and creative “all-levels” flow class designed to leave students feeling physically empowered and emotionally rejuvenated. Lesli completed her 200-Hour Registered Yoga Teacher certification from the Yoga Alliance in November 2012.
