Bonnie Hubscher

In 1980, my family and I founded Stayin’ Alive Fitness Centers. I wore many hats since 1980 – but my true passion has always been that of a teacher of movement. I taught a wide variety of group fitness formats, personal training, as well as Pilates Mat and Apparatus. I discovered The Pilates Method of exercise in 1999, fell in love with the deeper knowledge of bio-mechanics, stabilization, alignment and connection of breathe-to-movement. Now 65 years bold and a Happy Baby Boomer, I practice Pilates and Hatha Yoga to maintain my current level of fitness. I believe it’s working very well for me! I feel blessed to work in a field that inspires folks to invest in the health of their mind, body, and soul. I love sharing this blessing with as many other open-hearted folks as possible!

Holly Briscoe

Holly has been a student of Yoga since 1999. At first she was VERY frustrated by how inflexible and weak she felt – it was incredibly humbling for her. Soon she started to feel stronger, healthier, centered, more balanced and peaceful. Her life began to change in wonderful and unexpected ways. Holly finally saw the beauty in patience, discipline and being still inside. Somewhere along the way she found her voice and began to use it. Then things became clearer for her on many levels. Now she realizes she was waking up. She began to listen to her intuition and later trust it. Even now, she believes that every day brings a new lesson. She was asked to teach in 2001 and absolutely loves it. Holly LOVES having anything to do with people getting into Yoga and having their lives changed as a result. She has completed many work shops and teacher trainings in conjunction with YogaWorks, Integrative Healing Strategies, Omega Institute for Holistic Studies and the Institute for Advancement of Human Behavior. Her training reaches Vinyasa, Sivananda, Vini, Bikram, Ashtanga and Pre-natal Yoga and various types of meditation and energy work. She is certified with the prestigious and international YogaWorks and is a YogaWorks Teacher Trainer Ambassador. She is also certified for Advanced Reiki. On the personal side, she grew up in Kansas and has two amazing children. Holly thinks a little sense of humor can go a LONG way. She trusts that the Universe guides us when we pay attention and stay present. Holly believes energy medicine is VERY powerful stuff. And she thinks people should use Yoga in their lives however it suits them

Joan “Ishwari Jaya” Robinson

Ishwari’s yoga journey has been waxing and waning most of her life but finally melded when she found a teacher, over 10 years ago, who made her feel at home on the mat. That connection of feeling seen, heard and accepted is something she embodies and has offered to others both personally and professionally. From crisis volunteer to esthetician, her mission has always been to meet everyone where they are and hold a space of listening and support. When she stepped on the grounds of Kashi Ashram in 2019, she knew she was home. After attending a yoga retreat, she was inspired to enroll and completed her first Kali Natha Yoga 200hr teacher training in 2020. Being thoroughly connected to the teachings, lineage and yoga style, she became an assistant in the program the following year. Still wanting more of this expansive yoga and yearning to delve deeper, she enrolled in the 200hr program for a second time. She is currently working toward her 500hr and takes advantage of yoga classes, retreats and trainings in addition to participating in multiple 40 day Sadhana practices that help to set the intention and align her body and spirit for the day.

Joi Dupre

Hi! I am Joi Dupre. My love affair with Yoga began in 2011 and led me to receive my Yoga Alliance approved 200-hour teacher certification in December 2013 at Kula Yoga Shala in Jupiter, FL. Safety in practice has always been at the forefront of my teaching. I discovered Lara Heimann, Physical Therapist and Yoga Instructor in 2019 and the next chapter of my love story began. I knew right away that her LYT Method of Functional Movement and Yoga was a perfect fit for me. LYT Yoga, grounded in the teachings of physical therapy, focuses on re-training poor movement and posture habits.  In taking her classes, my back, SI Joint, neck and shoulder issues dissolved. I have never felt so strong, connected, and integrated in my body and I knew I had to share this Method. I am a 500-hour Certified LYT Yoga Method instructor and ambassador. My passion and commitment are that everyone move through life on and off the mat effectively and efficiently by creating safe, sustainable, and functional yoga classes.

I have been a licensed massage therapist (MA59262, MM42129) for 23 years. I specialize in Therapeutic Massage: Neuromuscular Therapy, Orthopedic Massage,  Myoskeletal Alignment Techniques, Muscle Energy Techniques, Sports Massage, Deep Tissue; I blend these techniques to create a session that is customized to meet your individual needs.  I am currently training with biomechanics specialist Conor Harris to further enhance my massage and movement practice. This course focuses on corrective exercises to transform posture and pain.

Technically trained and naturally funky best describes me.  I received a BA in Dance from the University of South Florida in 1990. Throughout my career, I have performed and choreographed in many major cities across the United States being showcased in everything from modern dance companies, music videos to national and international television programs. Among my endeavors, the following are highlights:  artistic director and choreographer for GLAM SLAM Miami: a nightclub owned by Prince; principle dancer for Patti LaBelle In Super Bowl XXIX; and choreographer for the Atlanta Hawks Dance Team. I was fortunate to have worked closely with and performed for such choreographers as Tina Landon (Janet Jackson) and Jamie King (Prince and Madonna). I am currently an avid Latin dancer.

In 2004, I graduated summa cum laude from Georgia State University with an MS in Exercise Science where I received the “Outstanding Exercise Science Graduate Student” award.  I bring passion and knowledge of movement and bodywork to every class and client providing a nurturing, safe, and educative experience that is sprinkled with love and laughter.

Monica Fiaschi

Monica’s love affair with all things yoga began with her very first breath in her very first class. With the encouragement of her teacher, she began to explore whatever piqued her interest: mantra, mudra, meditation, the chakras, philosophy, Reiki, aromatherapy, Ayurveda, qi gong, tai chi, reflexology…..the list goes on and on. As her practice deepened, Monica began to notice a new strength, balance, and flexibility in her life, not just physically, but mentally, emotionally, and spiritually as well. In 2011, she transformed her love of learning into a love of teaching and obtained her 200 hour certification from Transcend Yoga.

William Crockett

William (aka papacrock), began his path to yoga in 2012, after various body aches and pains, and an experience with cancer. Growing up in Florida, he was always active in fitness and surfing.

He now teaches a gentle and mindful yoga practice, emphasizing breath, alignment, and posture, through multiple poses to help those, with aging gracefully. William says the practice of yoga has definitely enhanced and extended the quality of his life, and his passion is to share this gift with others.
