Fiona McCarthy

Growing up, my mom was a yogi, but I began my personal yoga journey when I was a freshman in high school. Yoga showed me a way to connect with myself physically, mentally, and emotionally. It offered a new way to ground down, to open up, and to be present in each and every moment.

I always knew that I wanted to share the beauty and power I found in my yoga practice with others by teaching. In 2017, I studied with CorePower Yoga to obtain a 200hr certification based on a combination of Power Vinyasa and Hot Yoga. By continuing my education with CorePower in a YogaSculpt teacher training, I learned how to successfully and safely incorporate weight training into a yoga practice. 
My classes offer a way to ground down, challenge yourself, and begin to connect to a moving meditation that you might not have thought possible. Can't wait to meet you on your mat! Namaste.

Brenda Johnson      

My Classes are multi level, variations for poses are given for gentler and more vigorous practice.   Some classes are slow and alignment oriented, while others will flow.  

We work with the body (asana), breath (pranayama) and mind (meditation) for a balanced and fun practice.  Touching your toes is optional and never required.

Allie Dutto

Hi yogis! My name is Allie Dutto and I have been teaching yoga for over a year after I got my 200hr-RYT certification at CorePower Yoga. In my classes I hope to challenge, encourage, and most importantly invite passion into each student's practice. I focus on strengthening the mind and the body by holding poses and emphasizing breath. This allows students to slow down and get the maximum physical and mental benefits out of each pose. Proper alignment is a fundamental part of each class as I strive for my students to learn more about their bodies and reach their full potential. Fun, smooth music is essential as we flow breath-to-movement to establish a moving meditation and, of course, break a sweat! Most importantly, students will always get the opportunity to practice new breathing techniques as well as meditation. Namaste! "
