Alli Olson, 200RYT

My practice grew from simple stretches a physical therapist gave me to relieve back pain & quickly moved into self-taught flows, differing day-to-day depending on my needs.  In 2018 I advanced, refining my practice during a 200-hour Alignment Yoga teacher training in Koh Phangan, Thailand that focused on anatomy and proper alignment of the physical body.  I integrate alignment into each of my yoga classes, regardless of the style.  Alignment is important to me to ensure we get the most out of our practice while avoiding injuries.  I am excited to teach an Alignment Yoga class, “Align with Alli”.  This class focuses on specific areas of the body to build and strengthen the necessary knowledge and muscles to support your individual Yoga practice.

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.

Jeff Perkins, 200RYT

I grew up here in Boise. Although, I have lived in many other parts of the country, I always returned back here.  I have realized that Boise will always be my home.  My yoga journey began right here at Yoga for Life, about 10 years ago.  I bounced around for a while trying different studios, teachers and styles. Eventually I earned my 200-hour teaching certificate from Sage Yoga.  I have been teaching since April 2018.

 

 

Jill Singer, E-200RYT

I believe in the power of Yoga for health, healing & personal transformation.  My Yoga studies include Ashtanga, Bikram, BUTI, Hatha, Hot, Iyengar, Kundalini, Meditation, Mudras, Power (Baptiste), Prenatal, Restorative, Vinyasa, Yin, Yoga Nidra, YogaSHRED.  I have completed 75+ hours of Integrative Yoga Therapy training, 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.  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 & 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!

 

Mita Sandil, E-200RYT

I am a wife, mother, schoolteacher, artist, & yoga instructor.  I say that “each role is valuable in my life and has helped her grow as a woman, mother, & artist.”  I teach chair yoga to the elderly, disabled, injured, those with tight muscles, and low mobility.  Chair yoga is also valuable to those working in an office or home.  My lessons are designed with all body types in mind because I believe yoga should be accessible for every “body”.  This year I’ve grown tremendously as an online yoga teacher offering online, private & in-person group classes.  “A chair is more than just for sitting”.  Try a chair class with me,  you will sweat and stretch, walking away feeling centered & grounded!

Petula Lee, 200RYT

I started practicing yoga in 2016 for health and wellness reasons.  In 2019, I graduated with a 200-hr teacher training from Three Trees Yoga in Federal Way, WA.  For my personal practice, I enjoy hatha, vinyasa, kundalini yoga and different types of meditations.  I believe yoga and meditation is for everyone and brings healing and self-actualization.  It brings me joy to see the transformation in my students after one of my classes.  In 2021, I started writing guided meditations for vulnerable populations such as addicts and sex abuse survivors.

 

Sally Tompkins, 200RYT

I am certified in Vinyasa through Sage Yoga & Wellness & trained in Adaptive Yoga with Ken Lewis & Zen Adaptive and have been teaching since February 2019.  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.  Fun facts about me, I love animals & I enjoy outdoor physical activity (as long as it doesn’t involve extreme heights).

 

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 and became the owner/operator of Yoga for Life.  My yoga style is very casual with an easy pace.  I like to keep the mood light with friendly conversation and laughter!  When I grow up, I hope to be the person my dog thinks I am.
