Mari, 200 RYT
Along with being a yogi, I'm also a mother of 2 boys, a wife, a dog lover, soccer player and a veteran. I began doing yoga in my early 20's. I have practiced many different types of yoga and have now found my heart in a vinyasa flow style. After spending a little less than 4 years in the Army, I was in need of some mental, emotional, and spiritual healing. I found myself on many different therapists' couches but yoga is really what made the difference. I have found peace, love, and happiness within myself again and it all begins with a breath. This very healing is what inspired me to become a yoga teacher; I would like to help others along their journey.
Life is a collection of experiences; some good and some bad. What we make of these trials and tribulations shapes our being. This journey gives us strength, resiliency, and intelligence. We have countless opportunities to rebuild ourselves to live a stronger and happier life; it's never too late and you're never too old.
Christine, RYT200, Pilates
Christine's love for yoga began in a small studio in San Francisco in 2008 while recovering from a neck/shoulder injury. Immediately following her first Vinyasa class, she noticed less pain and tightness; something that traditional physical therapy hadn't accomplished. Being a physically active mom and occupational therapist, Christine recognized that yoga was not only just about exercise, but a more holistic way of being "intune" with your body. She moved from Sunny California to Ohio in Nov 2014 and received her 200 hr RYT certification in Ashtanga through Yoga Ah in July of 2015. She continued training and completed TRX suspension training in March 2016, her 100 hr Rocket Vinyasa training in Dec 2016, and recently received her Pilates mat certification. Christine believes her strong and vigorous classes are fun and challenging but can also slow things down when needed. She hopes you will see transformation in your life from yoga just as she has experienced.

I started my yoga journey in high school when I took a yoga class at my local gym. After the first class I was completely hooked! I was on a complete yoga high and just wanted to become so immersed in it. Finally, when I was 18 I went through my teacher’s training. Four years later I graduated college and I am now pursuing holistic nursing! Yoga has expanded my heart and my soul. I can honestly say I don’t know who I would be if I never came across it. I’ve learned so much about myself and how I want to show up in this life!
I want to share my love for yoga with others and spread the yoga seeds!!! I do this by holding a safe space for whoever takes my classes and allow them to be their most authentic and beautiful self! Yoga is more than yoga poses and breathing. It’s a lifestyle and a journey. Learning to practice what we do on the mat, off of the mat <3Type your paragraph here.
My passion for Yoga began in 2014 when I first moved to Cincinnati. At that time, I had never been to a group fitness class or a yoga class before; heck, I couldn't even touch my toes! I was far from being flexible and I was NEVER into being active.
Since I was so new to the area, I had zero friends and a dwindling social life; I knew I had to get involved in something to get myself out of the house. One day I stumbled upon a Groupon which offered a free yoga class. I decided to step out of my comfort zone and take the class, I mean why not, right?
To this day I still remember sitting in my car in the parking lot, thinking about not going to the class, and crying. I was so scared. What if people judged me? What if they looked at me weird? I don't know anything about Yoga! I can't touch my toes! Although taking a yoga class was something that was completely out of my comfort zone, I'm so glad that I went. It was life changing. The moment I stepped into the classroom all my worries went away. I didn't feel judged and I didn't feel like anyone was staring at me. Although I couldn't hold half of the poses, I felt like I was doing everything right and that I was in the right place. It was a wonderful feeling! From that point on, I knew that I wanted to keep yoga in my life forever and show others what I have felt.
You often hear people say "you don't have to be flexible to take a yoga class". Guess what? THEY.ARE.RIGHT. Yoga will transform you mentally and physically, so come start your journey with me! You'll find yourself coming back for more.
When I'm not teaching yoga, you can find me on the Lyra Hoop, Silks, or at a group fitness class ( I love to try to new classes now, lol! ) I have a wonderful Fiance, 4 cats (#catlady), and a dog. I'm a morning person, I like to keep myself busy, and I am a clean freak. You can find me listening to Christmas music in April, Oldies, Disney Music, and hits from the 2000s (in the class room too!!).
I'm so grateful to apart of Nina's Studio and I hope we have a chance a meet!

Tian, 200 RYT
My passion for yoga was sparked when I stumbled upon it at the end of a Power 90 workout video more than 10 years ago. Initially, my focus was on the strength I was building, the power that came from holding a strong posture. As I began to explore yoga more, I started to realize the incredible, even more substantial benefits of yoga.
As a single mom of two amazing boys, I’d found a sense of calm, peace and order – along with an incredible workout. I found myself supported physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually by my yoga practice. I started to realize that yoga was leading me down a path of not only physical well-being, but emotional healing, and I knew it was something I wanted to share with others. I learned more in my 200-hour teacher training than I could ever imagine, and am excited to continue my journey as a teacher and a yogi.
I am grateful for my incredible network of family and friends and love spending time with them. In addition to practicing yoga, I also love circuit training, running, CrossFit, and kickboxing. I have a passion for art, music, travel, and baking. I am grateful for, and passionate about life, and enjoy living it to the fullest!

Morgan, Body Sculpt Instructor
My journey with physical fitness began at a very young age. I've always been very athletic and through the years, have had my fair share of injuries. For a while, back pain was in total control of my life. One day, yoga became the topic of a conversation and I decided to give it a try. What was the worst that could happen, I take back the control in my life? Many classes/hours later, I can say that was the best decision I could've made. Yes, yes is the answer! I make the calls instead of the pain dictating my days. With yoga I've found not only pain relief but flexibility, strength and best of all, a new sense of peace. That my friends, is priceless. I'm so grateful to be able to give back and to be an instructor at Nina's awesome studio. I'll save the best for last..... I'm very fortunate to be the proud mother of a wonderful son named Tyler.
We've got so much ahead of us, let the journey begin!
