Adrienne White, Yoga Coordinator
Adrienne White has practiced yoga for over 20 years. The way she sees it, yoga is just a metaphor for life. She says that every challenge overcome in yoga practice becomes a lesson, an opportunity to apply what you learned on the mat to the "real world," helping you overcome your challenges there. Adrienne loves vinyasa, but thinks the best yoga is a safe and simple practice that makes you feel good. She developed Yoga Muse to help people “find their yoga," and she brings that concept to RAC. She teaches everything from yin and restorative practices, to power flow and yoga wall, to sport-specific practices for students. Adrienne wants to help you learn about yourself when you are on the mat so you can lead a happier and healthier life off the mat.

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.
