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!
Bill Dial, E-500RYT
I graduated from both 200- & 500-hour training programs at Shanti Yoga School and am registered with Yoga Alliance. My training is grounded in Vinyasa Karma and the study of foundational yoga scriptures. My personal practice and self-study education included The Heart of Yoga, The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, and Tantric Philosophy, as well as other Yoga philosophical texts. For 12 years I have been teaching at studios in Boise and a teacher within the Shanti Yoga School. I implement modifications & adaptations for more availability to a wider spectrum of people. While linking body & breath movement, I leading student through a series of postures to strengthen & build flexibility (promoting stamina & inner calmness). If you enjoy a slower pace, without force or strain, my classes are for you. When I am not on my mat, I am practicing Landscape Architect and enjoy time with my wife, children, and grandchildren.
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!
