Movement Studio Instructors

Kathleen Sheets, E-RYT 500   

Kathleen first became interested in yoga in high school and began teaching in college.  She went on to achieve a national certification and has studied with internationally known masters. An ever curious student of yoga, Kathleen completed an advanced 500 level yoga teacher training with teachers Theresa Elliott and Kathryn Payne of Pacific Yoga Teacher Training in Seattle in May 2010.  Her teachings draw mostly from the Iyengar and Ashtanga traditions.

Kathleen holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Visual Art and she enjoys the intuitive and creative side of the art and science of yoga. 

Off the mat, Kathleen enjoys spending time with family and friends, hiking and camping, traveling, and leading a healthy life.

Kenna Cox, RYT

Kenna began her yoga practice as a college student, seeking to balance the stress of daily life and quiet the raging storm of thoughts that was her mind.  The joy and peace that yoga provided eventually encouraged her to seek a deeper knowledge of the historic philosophy.

Being a curious traveler and a photographer, Kenna gravitated toward the source of yoga: India.  In 2016 she studied in Rishikesh, Uttarakhand (the "Yoga Capital of the World").  Her training focused on the Hatha Yoga tradition and included practice of the kriyas (bodily cleansing techniques).  She was fortunate to be in Rishikesh during the International Yoga Festival and also studied there under renowned and respected teachers.  Her practice and teachings are evolving with her experiences and her students.  “My hope is to encourage communion with that source that is within and connects us all.  Please join me for a class!  Yoga is for everyone.”

When not teaching, you might find Kenna clicking photos, hiking through wildflowers, or both.

Barbara Rodgers, RYT

Barbara was born in Portland, Oregon and grew up predominantly in the Pacific Northwest.  She arrived in Bremerton in 2009, where she discovered yoga in a much deeper way through teaching, practicing, and community.  “It is a journey that is better than I ever could have ever imagined and I am still traveling!”

Barbara has worked in arts administration, human resources, and is currently working, along with teaching yoga, at Olympic College as a Human Resources Specialist.    She received her yoga training through Conscious Community Yoga and is currently enrolled in a 300-hour teacher training with Seattle Yoga Arts.  Barbara finds yoga and teaching yoga to be incredibly creative and healing.  She believes that to be present on one’s mat, to express oneself through movement and stillness - there is nothing more uniquely inspiring than the practice and action of yoga.  “Yoga directly teaches and assists me in bringing compassion, presence, and balance to every part of my life.” 

Sarah Nolan, RYT

Washington native and traveler at heart, Sarah lives in a little house by the water with two handsome cats, a nice view and a big yard.  She loves dancing, reading, and yoga.

Sarah is a teacher and teaching is her natural state of being.  “Yoga helps me connect with my True Nature, and I hope to help others connect with theirs.”  Sarah holds an MA in Education and she is a life-long learner.  She also holds a 200 hour Yoga teaching certificate from Blooming Lotus Yoga School, KohPhangan, Thailand and spends time each year learning and practicing with her Yoga community in Bali, Indonesia.   She also continues to expand her formal meditation instruction at Blooming Lotus Yoga School, Thailand & Bali.   Sarah intends to spend the next phase of life traveling, teaching, practicing and growing.

Aly Anderson, RYT

Aly has been practicing yoga for over 15 years and is forever a student of Yoga. The most wonderful thing for her about the practice is that the more you show up, the more you learn, experience, and better understand the true Self.  Teaching yoga is all about love and personal empowerment. Aly wants the world to know, and have access to, the healing  power of Yoga. “When your passion collides with what the world needs, there you will find your purpose.” Aly received her 200 RYT training at Marianne Wells Yoga School, Cahuita, Costa Rica.

Aly has a passion for all things nature. She was born in the woods, and is always most at home when she is out in the forest, hiking or meditating. She loves to unleash her creative energy through large scale chalk drawings, gardening, crafting with her children, and spontaneous dance parties. Aly enjoys reading and is always looking for book recommendations!   “I try not to take life too seriously, for laughter truly is the best medicine.”
