In order by who you’ll see first during the week -
Everybody loves Krystyn! You have to be an early riser, though. She teaches at 7:30 on Mondays.
Krystyn is a hard worker with a full life. She has a full-time job at Texas State, and she loves to teach. She teaches all sorts of classes here and in Kyle, so she brings lots of variation to the table. She loves to really connect with her students.
Sarah is the owner of the studio. She has an exercise therapy background (Egoscue) and also teaches karate. But her yoga class is at 9:00 on Monday. She likes to have fun and is informational about the proper functions of the muscles and joints.
Jay is our teacher for beginners, although she teaches all levels in the studio. Don’t let her tattoos fool you. She is a marshmallow, and people enjoy her soothing voice. She talks a lot to the students about caring for themselves and others. She is a full-time yoga teacher.
Jay teaches the beginner’s classes at 12:00 on Mondays and Wednesdays and also the 10:30 on the same days. The 10:30 on Wed can be more difficult, but she is good at modifying for those who would prefer it. She also teaches at 9:00 on Wednesdays.
Edmee is a retired chemist, which means she loves to experiment and try new things! Edmee's focus is on breath, balance, strength and flexibility. Enhancing this practice, she combines the yoga you need with techniques from pilates, Thai yoga, Feldenkrais and Qigong. She is passionate about sharing yoga with others and is also a volunteer for Hospice. She teaches at 7:30am on Tuesdays and 7:30am and 9:00am on Thursdays.
Emily is our newest teacher, but she is probably also one of our most experienced. She just moved here from Waco, where she helped run a yoga studio as its lead teacher.
Emily has experience in a variety of yoga and fitness formats, but we’ve requested that she teach a class that is a step up for those who find the other classes too easy or who enjoy more of a challenge. We expect her to bring a variety of exercise types into the class along with yoga. Emily has personally benefited from yoga practice in managing her life with multiple sclerosis, and is grateful for the opportunity to share her passion for anatomy and healthy living with others. She strives to help others feel better through movement, and find strength in focused stillness. You can find out more about her at www.spiritbear.yoga. Emily’s classes are at 9:00 on Tuesdays and Fridays.
Gail is a retired biology professor whose studies focused on breast cancer. But you’d never know it with her hippie ways and musical inclinations. Her band plays regularly around town. As a septuagenarian plus, she understands the aging body. Don’t let that fool you, though. She’ll get you working. Her classes focus on strengthening and moving in all directions and don’t have people get on the floor. She is perfect for the recovering yogi. She is teaching because she loves it. She teaches at 10:30 on Thursdays.
Vera is a soft-spoken person, so her classes are very mentally calming. People are often so calm that they leave and get a pleasant surprise when they realize that they got such a good workout. Vera brings a lot of experience in other types of yoga to the table, and her style has a unique blend.
Vera is the director of the Montessori school in Wimberley and teaches yoga as a passion. Her class is at 8:30 on Saturdays.
Judy is a retired reading specialist and classroom teacher of 34 years. She began practicing yoga as a way to relax after long days in the classroom. Soon, she began to realize all the benefits of a regular yoga practice, including increased energy, strength, balance, and stability. Judy completed her 200-Hour certification from Camp Utopia in Wimberley. Her flow-based practice truly is the “yoga you need” to live a healthier lifestyle. Judy will guide you through practices for all levels regardless of experience or abilities—with a bit of fun along the way! Her goal is to help students build strength and balance in both body and mind. Judy and her husband live in San Marcos. In addition to yoga, she enjoys gardening, reading, and floating the river.
Judy is an entertaining person, and her classes are some of the biggest in the studio. Judy is a sub for now.
