Dedication. Energy. Personality. We lead with these ideals and qualities to make your experience calming, inspired and tailored. We will reach the areas in your life that need touched.
Our team at Ignite could simply not be more diverse. Each instructor brings his/her own life influences, experiences and skill sets to every class, making each session unique and memorable. Our team truly has a passion for our teachings and beliefs, and this energy is infused into every movement and step. The energy and support doesn’t stop at the mat—the lessons and love can be extended into every area of your life. This is a philosophy that all of our instructors share—yoga is more than a practice, it is a way of living. We hope to impart this onto each and every one of you to take with you both on the mat and once you walk out the door.
