Empowering and inspiring others is where Melinda finds her greatest joy.
Her classes are full of love, laughter and lots of sweat! Melinda creates a safe space full of possibility reaching ALL LEVELS.  As she has personally grown in her own practice, Melinda has experienced the power of being a “YES” for herself, for those around her and then taking that power from her mat into her world. Melinda began her teaching journey by earning her 200RYT with Desirae Pierce in 2012.  She then went on to train with world-renowned Baron Baptiste of Baptiste Power Yoga Institute, and is currently enrolled in the Bodhi Yoga advanced teacher training to earn her 500RYT.  Melinda is also an Institute For Integrative Nutrition graduate, and is a certified Holistic Health Coach registered through the International Association for Health Coaches.  She currently resides in Austin with her husband of 23 years, two beautiful daughters, two spunky westies and has a heart filled with gratitude!
Sylvia’s passion for Yoga reached a new level after a move to Austin in 2013. Finding the Bodhi Yoga community sparked the desire to delve deeper into her own practice and share her passion of Yoga through teaching. After completing her teacher training at Bodhi in the Spring of 2015 she has been part of the team ever since. Sylvia enjoys the transformational aspect of Yoga most: “Make room for growth by letting go of what ways you down”. Sylvia’s classes are mindful and inspiring for body and soul. She wants you to discover possibility and growth during your practice and embrace that change in your every day live. Her favorite pose is Humble Warrior: “Anchor and connect with the earth and you can surrender your heart and mind in gratitude”. To continue on that path of serving and helping, Sylvia is currently enrolled in a Yoga Therapy training. Sylvia lives in Bee Cave with her husband, three children and the best dog ever, Zoey.
What started as a mother daughter date 13 years ago turned into a life changing event for both women.

After years of studying yoga and nutrition Judy received her yoga teachers certification from Bodhi Yoga in 2012. She has studied under Shiva Rea, Seanne Corn and Dr. Tim McCall. She teaches a class that blends physical alignment and core strength to the fluid rhythm of sthira and sukha: steadiness and ease.

It is Judy's belief there is always something new to learn and the only way to grow is to remain a student.

Irene fell in love with yoga when she moved from New York to Austin in 2010. She soon learned the connection she found on her mat transferred over off her mat and into the rest of her life. Excited about her discovery, she completed her RYT 200 certification at LifePower Yoga under the direction of Jonny Kest.

Irene encourages curiosity of mind with the acceptance of breath and body by creating a space for self-exploration in the practice. Inspired by her yoga community, she is excited to share and connect on this yoga journey with this reminder: “Yoga is not about touching your toes, it’s about what you learn on the way down.”

My catalyst to start yoga in 2010 was that I found myself “falling apart in my office chair” . I initially turned to yoga for the physical aspects and found that the mental health aspects were equally powerful! Yoga has indeed changed my life and provides me a constant, lifelong place where I can show up and walk out always feeling better in body and mind.
One day a yoga teacher offered a quote during class of: “When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be. – Lao Tzu” and it simmered for a couple of years and in 2015, after enjoying a 31-year corporate career, I chose to leave and see what else I might be. Part of that journey led me to become a certified yoga teacher to share my love of yoga with others. My goal in each class is for students to walk out feeling better in body and mind, and finding what they need to grow in their yoga practice and life. My own practice and teaching supports growth by getting out of comfort zones and mixing challenge, ease, steadiness, exploration and fun into the practice.
Heather began practicing yoga over 15 years ago as a way to cope with health issues induced by stress. She will never forget the shear panic of her first yoga class…walking into a packed full, 106 degree room with people wearing next to nothing & being told we couldn’t leave the room for the next hour & 1/2 & only drink water at certain times…welcome to Bikram! This sounds like a nightmare but ended up changing her life. She was blown away by the amount of stress relief and inner peace she felt lying on her sweaty mat at the end of a challenging class. Realizing the more she put into the practice, the more she received she continued practicing even through the pregnancy & birth of her third daughter. She truly believes yoga has helped her become a better person, mother, wife & wants to share this amazing gift with others.

Heather is certified with Yoga Alliance as an RYT-200 teacher, having completed teacher training through Bodhi Yoga in 2015. She has since deepened her practice by traveling to India with Iva Drtina-Hall to study Aruveda, attended workshops with Baron Baptiste, Christina Sell & is on a never ending quest for knowledge. She is very grateful for the amazing teachers that have led her on this yoga journey & looking forward doing the same for others.

Heather’s passion is teaching Yin Yoga & offers students a safe place to breathe deep, let go & connect to their inner peace. Being a mother of 3 girls & running a company with her husband she understands how chaotic life can be & how important it is to create balance. She also finds great joy working with children & teens & has lead a teen girls workshop & teaches children & teens. She believes the powerful benefits of yoga can start at any age!

Quiet the mind & the soul will speak
