Jesse Daniel

Jesse has always had a passion for physical fitness and yoga fit right in! His first real experience with a training program came when he was in the Navy and competed on a rowing team. Running and strength training were a daily part of his life. Those aspects of training stayed with Jesse through the years. He always knew there was more he could learn about physical training, but never devoted any time to even try! What changed? His beautiful wife and soulmate Micki entered his life! They both set out on a journey together to be stronger & healthier through nutrition and yoga! Micki inspired Jesse to get his Personal Training Certification and for him to start his yoga journey! Jesse will be a yoga teacher in training and will be teaching “Gorilla Fusion, Yoga for Men”! And his private men’s personal one-on-one training “A Fit for Men”!



Debbie Kappler 
Debbie was first introduced to yoga in a gym as a way to stretch after cardio classes.  What she soon discovered was healing in all aspects of life.  Her desire to share that healing and peace with others led her to obtain her 200 RYT as well as additional certifications in children’s yoga.  In her classes you will focus on connecting movement to breath while honoring your body.  Being able to share yoga with others and watching them find healing and empowerment is her passion.  
She considers it a privilege to share the many benefits of yoga and mindfulness with children and watch them grow and learn while having fun.  She looks forward to seeing you, and your children, on your mat!
Katie Zura

Katie grew up in a musical family, not an athletic one.  Between playing in multiple orchestras and pursuing speech and theater, her schedule was packed to bursting every single day, and when she did exercise, it was not because she liked herself, but rather because she did not like how she looked.  Katie had a wake up call in her early twenties when the long hours of grueling practice began to take their toll on her shoulders.  Through chiropractic care and a rather fortuitous foray into the world of yoga, Katie was able to fully recover and almost ten years later, her joints and shoulders are stronger and healthier than ever!
Katie believes that whatever exercise you do, it must resonate with you.  It must bring you joy!  There is far too much pain and ugliness in this world to stress out on our down time.  Come to Katie’s class for a challenge, but it is her hope that you leave feeling lighter, happier, more peaceful, and more content in every area.  She is a true believer that yoga is for everybody and every body! Katie is a 200 RYT and is registered with Yoga Alliance. Namaste.

Angelina Manzella
From an early age Angelina has been innately interested in exploring the spiritual, mental, and physical domains of life — through athleticism, study, music, dance, art, and adventure. Although a KC native, she completed her original 200 Hour Certification at the first studio she opened- Spirit Yoga, in San Diego.  She then went forward to train with several different teachers across the country. Now she is certified as an E-RYT, with 3 certifications and has apprenticed other yoga teachers.  Angelina has been leading yoga and meditation classes since 2012, from New York to Southern California. Her style is focused on breath, balance, alignment, and having fun.
