It is very important to stay strong and flexible as we age, as well as having a social connection with others in your community. My background is in Vinyasa, and restorative yoga. I previously owned and operated my own yoga studio. I have taught yoga for 22 years and have instructed at Yoga for Life for the past 20 years. I have Yoga teaching certifications from both YFC and Shanti Yoga School. I love to laugh, I love the outdoors, and I love to share yoga! My motto is, never take yourself or your yoga too seriously!
Bill Dial, E-500RYT

Taking time to slow down in yoga and notice how my body is feeling, provides a chance to focus on my mind and 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. Yoga found me while I was a student in college in 2003. Attending weekly classes provided a much needed reset during studies. Continuing my practice since college and through prenatal, with PiYo, hot yoga, and restorative classes. I am a ACE certified fitness instructor for 6yrs and decided in 2019 that yoga was a my path. Graduating in 2020 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 be is by the ocean and swimming.
Jill Singer, E-200RYT
I believe in the power of Yoga for health, healing and personal transformation. My Yoga studies through the years have included Ashtanga, Bikram, BUTI, Hatha, Hot, Iyengar, Kundalini, Meditation, Mudras, Power (Baptiste), Prenatal, Restorative, Vinyasa, Yin, Yoga Nidra, YogaSHRED. I have completed 75+ hours of Viniyoga (Integrative Yoga Therapy) training and am a certified Barre Instructor and received my 200RYT through Shanti Teacher Training Program. I do not identify with one style, tradition or lineage, as I believe all yoga is helpful. Since 1981, yoga continues to be a daily practice as I transition from a long distance endurance athlete to a strength-based athlete, using all of its unique components for cross training, mental focus, stress relief, injury prevention and rest. 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 and furry critters, especially while enjoying the great outdoors, a sports activity, playing games and cooking & eating! When yoga found me 20 plus years ago, it was a welcome discovery for my body, mind and 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. I enjoy leading my students through a flow style class, which is non-intimidating, gentle, designed for all abilities and fitness levels. 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!
Sally Tompkins, 200RYT
I am a certified in Vinyasa through Sage Yoga & Wellness & trained in Adaptive Yoga with Ken Lewis & Zen Adaptive.

Through my experiences teaching Beginner Hatha at the Harris Ranch clubhouse, Restatha for the Little Yoga Center, Hatha Flow for Crunch Fitness, warm beginners yoga for Studio Move, subbing Yin & Power Yoga for Sage, and creating water yoga sequences for private clients, I has found my niche teaching to the whole person.
Stephanie Florence, 200RYT
A Utah native, I moved to Boise in 2000. It didn’t take long for me to fall in love with the Idaho way of life! I was first drawn to yoga because of the people. Everyone just seemed peaceably happy. I didn’t know how they got it, but I wanted it! Since then I have completed a 200-hour yoga training certification and am working on finishing up a 300-hour certification, both through Shanti Yoga Teacher Training Program. As of January 2021, I am the owner and operator of Yoga for Life. My yoga style is an easy pace in a environment where there is laughter and happiness! My mantra is, to try and be the person my dog thinks I am.
