Shona Nectoux

I'm originally from London and although I'm half English, half French I consider myself more of a world citizen having lived the last 6 years in Spain, Morocco, Argentina and now the US.
Having spent seven years doing gymnastics and circus skills as a child and teenager, in my 20s I struggled to find another form of 'exercise' I enjoyed... until I discovered yoga.
Initially it was just a physical attraction and we had an on-off relationship for several years. Curiously, I found that whenever I stopped practicing yoga, it always had a way of finding me again!
The last time yoga found me I was in Argentina and I finally started to appreciate the other elements of yoga, especially meditation and pranayama (breathing exercises).
I completed my 200-hour teacher training at Shoshoni Ashram in Colorado where I found myself growing in ways I could never have imagined. I also found that I had to unlearn a lot of what I thought I knew, leave my ego behind and relearn what yoga was all about!
I like to focus on breathing and the correct alignment of poses. I enjoy helping students to connect with their breath to enable them to focus on the present moment. I believe that by practicing yoga we become physically and mentally stronger, we improve body awareness and acceptance... and we can have fun at the same time!

Jessica Jewell

My yoga journey started in 1999 when I went with a dear friend to a class in the basement of a community center in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Although it wasn’t love at first asana, about two months into practicing I had an experience that led me to believe there was more to yoga than a good workout. From that time on I pursued yoga with a passion which grows with time. I love the way a good asana practice makes my body feel, and in my classes my intention is to help students feel good in their bodies. I draw on the many styles of yoga that I have practiced over the years including Iyengar, Ashtanga, vinyasa, power, Kundalini, and Forest. In addition, I incorporate into classes the other limbs of yoga and Ayurvedic principles to provide a holistic experience and empower people to live in harmony with the subtle energies that surround and influence us.

Amy Sauer

Let’s be honest. Amy began her yoga journey the way a lot of people do: not in a studio or fitness center, but in front of a “Yoga for Beginners” VHS tape in her parents’ basement. But as the world moved from VHS to Wii Fit, she was moving on, too, finding inspiration in Vinyasa Yoga and a flesh-and-blood teacher in Judi Olivetti.

After studying with Judi for a life-changing 3+ years, she completed a YogaFit training and began teaching her own classes in 2009. Then, in 2011, she completed the 200-hr. “Inner Power Yoga” training at Yoga, Body & Balance with R.R. Shakti of Yoga World Reach. She has also attended intensive workshops with Christy Burnette (Anusara), Thomas Radke (Anatomy), Donna Farhi (Restorative), Lisa Giroux (Iyengar), and most recently, Aadil Palkhivala (Purna Yoga).

Thanks to these teachers and many others, Amy’s yoga philosophy is constantly evolving. At the moment, her passion is for teaching beginners and those that prefer a gentle, flowing class. Amy likes her classes to be fun and playful, yet very breath-centered and mindful, so that practitioners can have the opportunity, one breath at a time, one day at a time, to liberate themselves from stress, tension, tightness, unproductive thoughts, emotions, etc., and can leave class feeling like whole, radiant human beings.

Amy lives in Lincoln. Off the mat, Amy is a writer and educator; she works as a Mentor for the Highly Gifted in the Lincoln Public School District and loves sharing her enthusiasm for Language Arts with her students.

Teresa Miner

As a consummate student, Teresa is in a constant state of becoming and as such, she believes in the transformational process that resides within all of us. In addition to her bead creations, and workshops, she is a yoga instructor who obtained her 200 hr and 100 hour certifications through Yoga World Reach.  Teresa has attained BA in English and Religion respectively. Through her many paths, Teresa discovered the undertone to her purpose has always been, how can I help, what can I learn and how can I teach it?
 
Yoga practice designed for all students, posture modifications, and expansion.
