Meet our facilitators
reka juhasz - facilitator, 200 ryt
I'm a power yoga junkie! Give me a heated room to practice and I'm in sweaty heaven.
A Hungarian-born, American-trained graphic designer, I love teaching yoga as a way to detach from all things design, computers—and tune into all things breath, flow, and deep assisting. I have been practicing and studying power yoga for more than 4 years now and I have a passion to support and empower others through meaningful practice.
You'll find me leading our TT's through Baptiste-style practices. These practices are open to the public, so luckily everyone can join in!
Joane Wire - Facilitator, 200 RYT,
In the past 20 years, I've had a strong focus towards health and wellness. My journey began as a registered dietitian, but yoga and meditation have been an important part of my wellness journey. This lead me to complete 200 hour yoga teacher training and become certified in Primordial Sound Meditation through the Chopra Center in meditation.
Outside of the studio, I'm a full time mom of three teenagers and love to spend my time traveling with my husband or being outdoors doing anything from hiking and biking to kayaking.
justina sanford - lead trainer, 500 E-ryt
Yoga has been a journey of peeling away what doesn't belong, an unlearning rather. I began by practicing and studying, what felt like, every style of yoga available, when I finally landed in Power Vinyasa. It's almost like it found me.
This practice challenged my mind to take a deeper look at myself, my life, and how I was living, and then brought it to my mat by embodying the practice. Once I began to see how my life was changing, I knew I could never go back. I've since been studying personal development and empowerment and bringing it to the yoga practice so that I could continue to the study of human relationship within and with others.
Angel Godzik - Facilitator, 200 RYT
My yoga journey began in 2007 with a simple 20 minute TV yoga class, but quickly evolved into attending regular classes and soon completing a 200 RYT program. Angel Godzik is a mom, a wife, a yogi, and an entrepreneur. She believes in living a healthy, holistic, happy life by utilizing nature's gifts. She is passionate about helping others and thankful for the connections she's developed in the yoga community.
She says, "When you love and believe in something, you naturally WANT to share it with others. The main reason I love yoga is because ANYONE can do it, no matter your age, shape, size or gender."
