Josie was dragged kicking and screaming to her fist yoga class in 2003.  AS a lifelong dancer, choreographer and teacher, she naively did not see any need for "more stretching" in her life.  Within her first hour of yoga practice, Josie knew that she had been bit by the yoga bug.  It combined flexibility, strength, strong mental focus and clarity of motion - all of the key elements that a dancer needs to build a successful dance career.

After 4 years of practicing herself, Josie nervously brought her love of yoga to her students beginning in 2007, as a form of conditioning at dance camps throughout the western United States.  The students were immediately receptive and enthusiastic.  Josie began her formal teacher training with Yogafit in 2009.  She completed her Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3 trainings in Minnesota with Yogafit Master Trainer Katie Schuver.  Upon completing the trainings, she moved to Texas where she was hired to teach Vinyasa Yoga at Lifetime Fitness.  Josie completed her 200 hour yoga teacher training with LifePower Yoga under National Director Jonny Kest and Regional Trainer Sheryl Braun.  Josie currently serves as an Ambassador for Lululemon Athletica at their store in The Woodlands, TX.  She is beyond grateful for the opportunity to foster community outreach and the honor of representing such an inspiring health and fitness focused company. 


Gina turned to yoga for self-healing and rejuvenation after suffering numerous physical maladies, including chronic pain, exhaustion, and emotional depletion resultant of a high-stress career.  Learning tools through yoga to reduce stress, find peace, and restore her body, Gina seeks to pass those tools on to others.  She meets students wherever they are in their lives and compassionately guides them in bringing relief and self-healing to their bodies, minds, and spirits through gentle and restorative practices.   

Gina, a Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga Teacher at the 500-hour level (RYT-500), has been practicing yoga since 2000 and teaching compassionate forms of yoga since March 2014.  She received her 200-hour training in the Ashtanga style from Cherry Blossom Yoga co-owner, Sara Turk.  Gina is certified in Prime of Life Yoga (POLY), a gentle style, developed by Larry Payne.  She, also, is certified in Phoenix Rising Therapeutic Yoga (PRTY), a gentle, client-centered, present-focused, body-based, self-inquiry style of yoga developed by Michael Lee.  

Gina’s continuing education focuses on yoga for self-healing emotional wounds and traumas (anxiety, depression, PTSD, eating disorders, cancer, chronic pain, et al.) and has studied with world-renowned teachers Bo Forbes (Yoga for Emotional Balance), Michael Lee (Phoenix Rising Therapeutic Yoga - A Bridge from Body to Soul), Amy Weintraub (Yoga for Depression), and Seane Corn (The Body and Beyond workshop).


Valerie is a certified yoga and aerial yoga instructor in the Houston area. The juxtapositions of her three passions: photography, dance and yoga has allowed her to capture moving images of people in their most genuine moments. She currently teaches at Kahanu, Expansion Wellness Center, Aerial Yoga Houston and Artisan School of Dance.



Theresa is a 500-hour registered yoga teacher (RYT) certified in Vinyasa Yoga, Relax and Renew Restorative Yoga (levels 1 & 2) and Yin Yoga & Meditation.  Inspired by the countless ways yoga has transformed her life, she became a teacher to share the gift of yoga with others.  When she is not practicing or teaching yoga, Theresa enjoys long walks in nature, getting lost in the process or making art and sharing life with her family and friends (pets included)

"I love yoga because it quiets my mind, brings me into the present moment and opens my heart to receive the gifts of life" - Theresa Paz
