Stephanie Florence, 500RYT
I moved to Boise in 2000 and it didn’t take long for me to fall in love with the Idaho way of life! My first yoga class was on a Groupon, I loved the way it made me feel and the sense of calm I felt after a yoga class. I am naturally a happy person and so are the people who do yoga. So learning more about it became a goal. In 2021 I completed my 500-hour RYT through the Shanti Yoga Teacher Training program. My yoga style is very casual with an easy pace. I like to keep the mood light with friendly conversation and laughter!

Haley Ball, 200RYT
Yoga found me while I was a student in college. Continuing my practice since college and through prenatal, with PiYo, hot yoga, & restorative classes. Slowing down in yoga, noticing the feelings, provides me a chance to focus on my mind & body coming together. I also like the intensity that a power class can provide. The challenge of zoning in on the breath helps to make tough holds in poses more enjoyable. I am a ACE certified fitness instructor and decided in 2019 that yoga was my path. Graduating with my 200RYT from Shanti Yoga School. My teachings styles are Power Vinyasa and Gentle Flow. My personal mantra is “Just Breathe.” One of my favorite things is to swim in and be by the ocean.

I look forward to sharing my passion for mind-body connection combined with FUN with all.
Karyn Felix, Level2-YFC
I love spending time with family, friends & furry critters. Especially while enjoying the great outdoors, a sports activity, playing games, cooking & eating! Yoga found me 20 years ago, it was a welcome discovery for my body, mind & soul. Learning to truly breathe during yoga translated to all areas of my life. My hope is for everyone to feel like they can do yoga. Yoga is not a competition, we all look different in our poses due to the way our bodies are built and our varying levels of flexibility. My motto…count your blessings, work hard to play hard and remember to breathe & wag your tail!

Bri Strodtbeck, 200YTT
I am a 200 hour certified yoga teacher and currently working towards my second 200 hour training. I also have my Master’s in Nutrition and Functional Medicine. Holistic health and mind, body, spirit balance are very important to me. I love to incorporate my nutrition and yoga education into my teachings. I love to nerd out about the nervous system, autoimmune conditions, body positivity, and destroying diet culture. My yoga classes tend to be on the playful and creative side while also being inclusive and available for all bodies. I am passionate about helping my students find confidence and peace on their mat. I also teach Yoga Nidra’s that I write myself, and I love the creative challenge that it brings along with the benefits of yoga nidra meditations. Some things I like to do that don’t include yoga are crocheting, cooking, camping, hiking, and reading.
Alli Olson, 200YTT
My Yoga practice grew from simple stretches a physical therapist gave me to relieve back pain and quickly moved into self-taught flows that differed day-to-day depending on what I needed. In 2018 I advanced and refined my practice during a 200-hour Alignment Yoga teacher training in Koh Phangan, Thailand that focused on anatomy and proper alignment of the physical body. I integrate alignment into each of my yoga classes, regardless of the style. Alignment is important to me to ensure we get the most out of our practice while avoiding injuries. I am excited to teach an Alignment Yoga class, “Align with Alli”. This class focuses on specific areas of the body to build and strengthen the necessary knowledge and muscles to support your individual Yoga practice.
