Hilda has been involved in the health and wellness industry for over 20 years. Beginning with practicing and eventually teaching Tae-Kwon-Do at a young age, running her own personal training business, doing nutrition consulting, leading bootcamps and teaching yoga. She is first aid, CPR & AED certified and studied Health Education and Holistic Health at San Francisco State University, which is also where she also began her yoga journey. Practicing, eventually lead to a desire to deepend her practice and begin a yoga teacher training, first getting some basic certifications through AFFA & later going on to begin a 200 hour teacher training through YogaFit.
She then furthered her training several years later by adding a kids yoga specialty training and a 50 hour Yin Yoga teacher training to her skill set.
In her free time, Hilda loves to travel the world with her family, friends and retreat groups(which she organizes), spend time outdoors hiking and practicing the ancient practice of Shinrin Yoku, & scuba diving. She also enjoys creating essential oil blends and learning about the medicinal uses of herbs. Join her in one of her many weekly yoga classes for a time of physical progress, release, introspection and peace.
Susan has been working as an EMT for 11 years, she had seen how critically important it is that we take care of our bodies. Since doing yoga Susan has experienced first hand the physical and mental effects that yoga provides for the body, with reduced stressed, better sleep and less aches and pains in her own body.
I am CPR & AED certified. I have completed my 200 hour Expand Your Power teacher training, as well as Level One Journey Into Power program through the Baptiste Institute. When I am not at work, you can find me traveling, hiking and spending time at the ocean with my family.
"Creating an audacious passion, purpose and vision one breath and one pose at a time."
Susan's classes are fun, uplifting and lively. Expect to get sweaty!
Kara has been practicing yoga for over 25 years and teaching on and off for the past 15 years. She grew up as a dancer with over 10 years of formal ballet training. This provided a strong foundation in body alignment, strength, flexibility, balance, attention to detail, and breathing. She practiced Hatha yoga as a student at Ohio State University, and was later introduced to Ashtanga yoga, her preferred practice, at Atlanta Yoga Shala. Although she fell in love with rigor of the Ashtanga practice, she developed a deeper understanding of proper alignment of the body, precision of asanas, anatomy, and sensitivity to injury, only after she studied Iyengar-style yoga with Leslie Howard, at Flying Zebra Yoga in Modesto, CA. As such, her preferred approach to practice and teaching most closely follows a modified Ashtanga series with Iyengar-like attention to proper alignment and sensitivity to injury. In her class, you can expect a physically rigorous practice with modifications for poses that allow safe practice at all levels.
Elizabeth practiced yoga informally and off and on for years before becoming more serious about it two years ago. She appreciates the stress reduction and centering she has experienced as a result, and finds that yoga has greatly improved her life. She loves the non-competitive aspect of yoga, which is much different from other sports she has been involved in, including running and swimming. Elizabeth completed YogaFit's Level One teacher training, and is excited to be able to share her passion for yoga with others.
Jessie has been practicing yoga off and on since 2003. Getting her Yoga Teacher certification
in 2019 was something she had long been waiting for. Growing up she participated in dance
and competitive sports. Most of her life she was taught in a competitive setting, so learning to let
go of that thinking and learning to be kind to herself was a most welcomed yoga lesson.
She enjoys teaching all types of yoga, her personal favorite being vinyasa, but embraces the
peacefulness of Yin, restorative and chair yoga. The main aspect of yoga she emphasizes with
her students is that it’s not a competition, it’s simply a practice of having patience with oneself
and accepting where each person is in the moment. This perspective influences her passion for
helping students to create a positive image of themselves and maintaining an overall sense of
well-being and happiness.
Before going through teacher training, she approached yoga as though it was only about the
body. Then she learned that yoga is not all about how the body feels in the moment (even
though hitting that beautiful inversion pose is always fun and exciting) it’s about how body, soul
and mind feel afterwards. Her passion for this practice is untamable and has only grown the
more she steps into her role as teacher.
JULIET SAN NICOLAS DE BRADLEY
Juliet has been practicing yoga for the past ten years, largely since coming to terms with severe chronic illness. She is passionate about reminding herself and others that our bodies are beautiful, full of grace, and created for movement. She hopes to help others enter into spaces where they can learn to be gentle with themselves and their bodies and foster connection with breath and intention. She is an artist, a dancer, and a Speech Language Pathologist. She had her first yoga teacher training this past Spring at Fearless Yoga and was absolutely delighted to learn more about the practice of yoga. Her hope is to bring yoga to communities that do not typically see themselves as able to "do yoga" because she believes yoga is for everyone.
