Sandi T. Tindal
Yoga came to Sandi during a very difficult time in her life. In 2008 she suffered a severe mental breakdown during her career as an electrical engineer. She had reached a point in my life where the pains and trauma of her past could no longer be hidden or stay quiet anymore. Her therapist recommended yoga as part of her healing. Sandi’s first several months with yoga were spent simply learning how to breathe again. As she began to explore the postures she was able to manage and overcome depression and anxiety. Sandi came to understand the importance of the health of the whole person: mind, body and spirit.
 
 

Sandi continued her exploration and study of yoga, training and receiving her 200 hour RYT in 2014. She is continuing her training in yoga therapy and is a member of the IAYT (International Association of Yoga Therapists). Sandi believes that yoga therapy is a wonderful tool for healing and recovery.

 

Sandi’s background in engineering is now very much a part of her teaching. It's with that mindset that she teaches students to connect with healthy and safe anatomical alignment and transitions in their practice. As a teacher, it's her goal to help students find a sense of joy, steadiness and ease in yoga.

Harmony Slater
Harmony Slater has been teaching Ashtanga Yoga in the Mysore method for over a decade. She was first introduced to Yoga in 1995, and began practicing Ashtanga Yoga in 2000. She always had a keen interest in spirituality and the art of physical movement, which culminated in fifteen years of dance training and two BA degrees in Philosophy and Religious Studies.
 

In 2002, she traveled through China researching Buddhist meditation and in 2004 she made her first trip to Mysore, India. That same year she moved to South East Asia where she began a journey of teaching Yoga Internationally, which allowed her to spend long periods of time practicing with Sri K Pattabhi Jois and his grandson R. Sharath Jois at the Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute, now the KPJAYI.

 

Harmony was given Authorization by Guruji in 2006, and was granted Certification by Paramaguru Sharath Jois in 2015.

 


Over the years she co-founded two traditional Ashtanga Yoga Schools in Canada. The first was established in 2009, in Victoria BC, and the other is found in Calgary AB, where she currently teaches and resides. With the birth of her son Jediah, life became full and sweet, and she experienced the dawning of yoga within every aspect of daily life.

Jessi Smith .
Jessi Smith's yoga journey began in 1998 at the Dallas Yoga Center. In the very first class she attended, the teacher (Paula) said: "It's not about where you are, it's who you are."
 
 
Something about those words woke her up. She wanted to understand more about what was said, wanting to go deeper into that. And that was the spark that stated her journey - and it's what she hopes to spark in people when they are on the mat.
 

Jessi began teaching in 1999, much sooner than she had anticipated. She found her teacher, Baron Baptiste, soon after that, and became certified by the Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga Institute in 2003. For several years she traveled with her teacher assisting in workshops, retreats, and teacher trainings.
 

Over the years Jessi has studied with a wide variety of teachers including Shiva Rea, Ana Forrest, Sharon Gannon & David Life, Rod Stryker, Rusty Wells, Nicki Doane & Eddie Modestini, Johnny Kest, and a host of brilliant people who also share a love for yoga.
 
 
She also enjoys the stories, and myths behind the postures, the Philosophy of Patanjali, as well as Kirtan, Yoga Nidra and Meditation.
 

Jessi has been teaching for over seventeen years, and continues to learn from the many amazing teachers and students she meets along the way. She believe all yoga works, and uses Vinyasa Yoga as a base to build each individual’s practice.
 
 
Jessi’s purpose is to empower her students to feel their best in a healthy body and content mind through the practice of yoga.

Jen Mabus
Jennifer Mabus was drawn to teach yoga because of the way that the practice brought healing to her body and balance to her mind throughout her career as a professional dancer in NYC. She received her 500-hour professional yoga certification from YogaWorks in NYC in 2005, training under Jean Koerner, Tzahi Moskowitz, and other teachers in ISHTA, Hatha, and Iyengar-based traditions.
 
She has since been teaching yoga to varied populations, from helping individuals with special health needs to teaching young people a way center and ground. She believes that a yoga practice should aid the individual’s needs and challenges, and she teaches a range of classes from alignment-based Hatha/Vinyasa Flow to gentle and restorative practices.
 
Mabus is also a dance teacher, with an MFA in Dance and twenty years of experience, and yoga is a part of her teaching practice with universities, such as Sam Houston State University, and dance companies, such as Houston’s MET Dance Company.
 
Varied somatic practices and a lifelong study of the human body in motion greatly inform her classes, and her goal is to create space for people to come back home to their body and breath.
Jyl Kutsche
Jyl believes in bringing an interdisciplinary approach to her teaching, combining technique & flow with a strong emphasis on anatomical alignment; with the aim of deepening your awareness of sensation in each pose. She has practiced yoga since 1990, and has been teaching since 2006.
 

She has been a long time student of Tias & Surya Little of Prajna Yoga. She is one of their senior instructors and has received both her 200 Hr & 500 Hr certifications through them. She continues to study and assist them regularly around the country.

 

She co-founded a non-profit organization in Austin to bring yoga to local schools, veterans, prisons, shelters and senior centers. She is also a licensed massage therapist and is currently studying shiatsu with Yoshi Nakano.

Laura Tulumbas
Laura has been practicing yoga for over 18 years and teaching for 15+ years. She initially found her practice via the restaurant business: burnt out, exhausted and losing it, she sought out yoga as a way to help manage her stress. Through her practice she found a way to cope and ultimately a way to dive more deeply into possibility and create meaning in this crazy world.
 

Laura Tulumbas is a Certified Holistic Health Counselor and Lifestyle Coach, AADP, a Certified Yoga Teacher E-RYT 500 with Yoga Alliance and a Reiki Master. She is previously a Certified Anusara Teacher, certified to teach at Virayoga in NYC in 2002 and is presently teaching a form of aligned flow hatha yoga that has evolved from this knowledge along with Rajanaka Tantra, Ayurveda, anatomy, breath, and the subtle body.

Her greatest teaching resource has been her own exploration of the body and what it has to offer.

 

in her office in the Wellness Center at DYC, Laura offers one-on-one nutritional counseling as well as and lifestyle counseling. Having seen and experienced the benefits of combining a yoga practice with daily routines and prescriptive eating according to her constitution she delights in educating others about the benefits of this path. She believes when we choose to fully step into our experience of being present and mindful we can make choices that will optimize our health, create vitality and offer us a life that we love.

 

Laura is a Reiki Master and offers one-on-one healing appointments using Reiki, a Japanese energy healing modality and crystals to unblock prana and move energy to unleash our greatest potential.

 

Laura is in awe of the elegance and intelligence of the body and she remains curious about how to tap into the potency and the abundance it has to offer. Laura is grateful to all of her teachers especially her two boys who serve as her best teachers, challenging her, loving her, and keeping it real. She is grateful to have a daily practice that serves as a way to refine her experience on a daily basis.
