After dabbling in yoga most of her adult life, a distance running injury sidetracked Lori. She renewed and strengthened her relationship with yoga to find that there was physical healing and strengthening in the practice. Yoga also helped her to build emotional strength and inner peace that made her feel like she was a more present mother and better able to take on the pressures in life. A longtime public school educator, Lori decided to switch things up and earn her RYT-200 yoga teacher designation in order to bring yoga and mindfulness to children through her Yoga in Schools workshop. The vision blossomed over the years and grew into what is now Sankulpa Yoga Center. She is happy to bring yoga to her community so that others may reap its benefits.
Linnae discovered her passion for yoga almost 15 year ago after the birth of her daughter and was searching for easy fitness ideas at home. She discovered the power of the practice was so much more!
After selling real estate for over 15 years, Linnae went back to school and earned a Masters in Counseling Psychology and Spirituality and recently passed the state licensing exam earning her Licenced Professional Counselor designation. She saw the need for mindfulness in the therapy world and decided to integrate yoga into her future therapy profession. In addition to yoga, she has a strong passion for teaching others about the use of essential oils. She soon found another hand in hand therapy technique for both counseling and yoga.
She continued her education and graduated with her RYT-200 hour certification from the Emerald Heart School of Yoga with the amazing and life changing teacher, Mara Campbell.
Linnae is honored to teach and inspired by her students everyday. She lives with her husband Mike and their four amazing children, Jack, Molly, Maggie and Kate.
Heidi has been practicing yoga since 2006. She has always been physically active and at the same time always sought a sense of connection and wholeness through spiritual and meditative practices. Heidi found the perfect combination of these aspects of health and wellness in Yoga. She has her Master’s Degree in Social Work and originally worked with adolescents with substance abuse issues. As her children have grown and become more independent, she has had time to focus more thoroughly on her yoga practice. She said it was like coming home, as Heidi felt the trajectory of yoga for her has been a lifelong process of reconnecting to her true self and purpose. It seemed a natural progression to complete her 200 hour yoga teacher training, enabling her to share the healing and growth she has found through yoga with others.
Heidi's teaching style emphasizes healthy alignment as it applies to each individual. She focuses on connecting to and working with the breath and body enabling one to be fully present in one’s yoga (and life) in a mindful way. She places great importance on enabling students to take ownership of their yoga practice in a way that is right for each student beginning with a sense of acceptance and love.
Becky enjoys all things related to health and wellness. She started as a basketball player in her youth and continued to play through college. After college, she realized she needed to add a variety of fitness routines to gain more strength and flexibility. In 2012, she started taking PiYo Live classes and enjoyed them so much that she became certified to teach in early 2016 and has been teaching the class on a regular basis for the past 2 years. In addition to PiYo, Becky is a high school basketball coach and involved with the local youth girls basketball program. She truly enjoys giving back to others through coaching and teaching fitness.
