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.

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.

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.”
