Adyn Pipoly was born and raised in San Antonio and grew up participating in everything from horseback riding and track and field to cheerleading. She began her yoga practice at the age of 17 and developed a strong following before leaving for college in England. Two years later she made the move to Denver where both her college education and yoga practice would flourish. After graduating from the University of Denver, she completed a 200-hour teacher training program and moved back home to San Antonio. Her classes are often sweaty and always inspirational, and she strives to make authentic and genuine connections with each and every one of her students.
Yoga came to Angela as an answer to many questions. It was a book that started it all: Una Fiesta para el Alma, by Zaira Leal. She started reading about yoga and practicing (or trying) its principles for a long time before starting the Asana (physical) practice.
The changes she has experienced since implementing a Yoga Asana practice on a regular basis are priceless. Not only in her body, but especially in her mind. She wants to share this with others. She is 30 and as little as a year ago couldn’t even imagine her body and mind would achieve the improvements she has. It is never late to start!

With her fun and sweaty style of Vinyasa, Clara strives to foster her love of yoga in all of her students!

Kelli began her yoga journey 10 years ago, but it wasn’t until more recently, during her 200 hr Ashtanga Yoga Intensive Training, that is became much more than just a physical practice. Almost immediately, she felt a connection to Ashtanga that she hadn’t experienced with any other style. It was almost magnetic. She feels so lucky and grateful to be able to share her practice with like minded yogis and yoginis.
