Well, that’s what I want to do.” Jody completed her 200 hour training through FlFIYS in Tampa & began teaching in ’05. She holds certifications in yin, Divine Sleep yoga nidra® and prenatal yoga.

Buffy La Roux

Buffy La Roux

200CYT, Reiki Master

Buffy La Roux is an Intuitive Empathic Healer/Channel of Divine Light, Energetic Hacker, Cosmic Shamanaut, Cosmic Sound Healer, Ordained Minister of the Light (Pnematikoi), Reiki Master/Teacher, Licensed Massage Therapist MA80893 and all around goofy, lovable eclectic human. Buffy’s journey of energetic awareness began as a child, but kicked into high gear in 2007 with an abrupt awakening, a sort of rapid fire spiritual boot camp that drastically shifted her perception of “reality”. Through her own healing journey and extensive hours spent in the service of helping others she is a powerful conduit for the updated paradigm of consciousness and awakening energies. Spirit works through Buffy in the form of singing and speaking in multiple celestial languages. This one of a kind experience deletes programming, density in the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies, activates ancient dormant DNA and moves participants into the expansive state of clarity, growth and purpose.

Craig

Craig

200RYT

Hi I‘m Craig and very excited to belong to the IOY community. For me success consists in the overcoming of difficulties. They are the signposts on my path. Seeking to deepen my spiritual connection and in search of healing I discovered Yoga. Yoga has been transformational in bringing me a lightness of spirit, stillness of mind and a stronger flexible more balanced body. I am an old student of Vipassana meditation and completed 200 hours of YTT in 2019. I believe that everyone has the ability to live a life that’s extraordinary and I am devoted to helping others create that through the practice of Yoga.

Evelyn

Evelyn

200CYT

I’m Evelyn! I’m a yogi, I’m a human. I get happy, I get sad…yoga helps balance all of that.

I was introduced to yoga in 2016 seeking a physical practice but it soon became much more than that. My practice evolved and moved inward. Over the years, yoga has helped strengthen my body and mind. It is now an integral part of my life.

In 2019 I decided to deepen my practice and completed 200 Hour training at Project 7 yoga in Orlando. Since then I have been passionate about sharing the gift of yoga & yoga philosophy. I focus to blend mindful movement and intentional breathe to develop a deeper awareness within. My goal is to encourage students to explore and find the freedom of coming home that’s within us all.

Jhoanna

Jhoanna

200CYT

Jhoanna began her yoga journey in 2007 when she exchanged the fast paced life of Las Vegas for a simple one in Puerto Rico. She turned to yoga knowing the benefits of stretching after a work-out. With trepidation, she walked in to an Ashtanga yoga studio to “check it out”. She noticed that aside from open hamstrings, each class left her with a sense of clarity. She realized that yoga goes beyond the physical; it allowed her to tune in to herself to find the peace, happiness and love that resides within us all. Jhoanna moved to Auburndale in 2011. With a strong desire to share the phenomenal benefits of yoga, she enrolled in a yoga teacher training program. She teaches a vinyasa flow with an emphasis on alignment. Her yoga is influenced by teachers who have learned from B.K.S. Iyengar, Pattabi Jois, Desikachar, and other inspirational teachers. Her classes brings a sense of harmony between calmness (sukha) and strength (sthira) to allow for a balanced life on and off the mat. According to her, ”Yoga makes us stand taller and with more confidence, yet grounded, humble and kind. It transcends the body and positively transforms us into better beings.” Her easy-going, nurturing style will suit a beginner or deepen a developed practice.

Kathryn

Kathryn

200RYT

Kathryn began her yoga journey many years ago in New Jersey. The fitness club where she played squash offered yoga so she gave it a try. It was love at first sight and the yoga joy has only deepened and grown ever since. In 2015, Kathryn took her yoga teacher training at Inspirit Yoga in Orlando and became a 200 RYT; the same year she was certified as a Chair Yoga instructor after studying with Sherry Zak-Morris; and in 2017 she became registered to teach Dr. Fishman’s Method of using yoga to build bone strength. Kathryn has been blessed to teach yoga classes since 2015 and has led guided meditations since 2013. Her classes focus on vinyasa yoga with an emphasis on connecting the yoga poses to the breath and uniting the mind, body and spirit.

The deepest joy for Kathryn comes from helping others to bring stillness to their minds and happiness to their hearts. She offers this quote from the 8th Verse of the Tao Te Ching to inspire you: “One who lives in accordance with nature does not go against the way of things. She moves in harmony with the present moment, always knowing the truth of just what to do.” Developing our yoga practice provides a firm grounding for inner harmony, awareness of truth and the ability to live mindfully in the present moment. How wonderful!

Now, a wife and mother with two small children, her daily yoga and meditation practice helps her manage a busy demanding household while maintaining her positive outlook.

Kerry Wilson is an old man, who has been practicing yoga since he was eighteen. His interest in starting Inside/Out Yoga involves wanting to create a public space in downtown Winter Haven for the practice of yoga and other conscious exercise and meditation, and to make that space available for passionate teachers. He offers irregular classes, and periodically offers a series of yoga classes for beginners. He calls it “Silverback Yoga” and it’s designed for older men and women who shoulder stressful responsibilities, and who’d never thought they’d be caught dead practicing yoga.
