JennyJenny Mueller is a certified yoga teacher who has been teaching full and part-time for 13 years and studying yoga for sixteen years.

Jenny considers yoga practice and teaching to be the primary spiritual exercises that nourish and support the larger spiritual practice of her life.

IMG_3913Rachel Jackson has been studying and practicing yoga for 14 years and teaching for the past 8. Her main teaching styles include Slow Flow Vinyasa, Yin Meridian Meditation, and Hatha Yoga. Her interest in yoga began at age 13 practicing Vinyasa Yoga of the Jivamukti Lineage. As her practice deepened she began practicing Yin Meridian Meditation to balance out her vigorous vinyasa practice. In 2006 she entered into the ashram of 7 Centers Yoga School in Sedona, AZ for her 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training. It was here she gained background in Kundalini yoga, Hatha Yoga, and the Shatkarmas (yogic cleanses) through the lineage of Swami Satyananda Saraswati. It was also here where she learned the basics of Ayurveda for supporting the yogic lifestyle. Since then, she’s gone on to study with Rama Jyoti Vernon in applying the Yoga Sutras according to Patanjali, and with Ruth Hartung (Sraddhasagar) in Therapeutic approaches to yoga. After her yoga teacher training, Rachel became a Licensed Massage Therapist, specializing in Traditional Thai massage, Shiatsu, and Reflexology. Whether it is through yoga or massage, Rachel aims to inspire everyone she meets to plant the seed for a positive change in their lives, to follow their dreams towards a happier and healthier life!
