Dr. Barb- As an experienced Chiropractor, Thai Yoga Bodyworker, and B.E.S.T Practitioner, Barbara spent years feeding her passion for the body and anatomy. In 2017, she further enhanced her knowledge of how the body works when she completed a 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training with Andrew Tanner and Elements3 Yoga. She began teaching that same year.
Over two decades ago, Barbara first found her way onto a yoga mat to address feelings of disconnection and heartache. One of the biggest lessons yoga taught her is that nothing done with force is ever sustainable. She now spends her time on and off the mat seeking the balance between effort and ease. She shows her students how to lengthen and strengthen the spine while opening the heart. Barbara makes it a point to always meet her students where they are in the moment and carry them forward.
Barbara looks forward to sharing the gifts and lessons learned from yoga to further enhance healing and reconnection of the body, heart, and soul.

Georgia loves offering a variety of options in each pose, so that everyone can feel they are able to move in the way their body needs most in that moment. She enjoys using music in her class as a way to deepen the practice and awaken emotions through auditory sensations. Georgia aims to connect her students breathing with the movements of their bodies, allowing their minds and bodies to relax and reconnect.
