Karen Altenpohl

Yoga Instructor, E-RYT 500

Karen took her first Yoga class in 2002 and is the first to admit she found the physical practice first.  Yoga has become an ongoing journey for her into grounding, centering and moving into a place of greater compassion.  Yoga has been transforming on all levels for her, and she continues to study and practice for herself, and to share the gift of Yoga with others. 

Karen earned her E-RYT500 through Yogafit and began teaching in 2005. She has studied and been influenced by many different teachers,  particularly;  Doug Keller, Cyndi Lee,  Anand Mehrohtra, Judith Lasater, and Michael Stone.  Her classes are alignment-based with special attention to the breath, and moving into mental awareness.  She infuses her slow, free flow style classes with strength work, and attention to stabilization of the joints during deep stretch.  Teaching Yoga to others is a humbling experience and she considers herself always the student first and the teacher second.

Erin Betlej

Yoga Instructor, RYT 200

Erin started practicing yoga over 7 years ago and admittedly only started because of the physical exercise and challenge it provided. Yoga has since become an ongoing journey to feel at home in her body, breath and spirit. Yoga helps her stay grounded and strong as the emotional and spiritual benefits are just as important as the physical benefits from a consistent practice.


Erin has been teaching yoga for four years and specializes in flow, alignment-oriented yoga, spiritually-oriented yoga and hot/heated yoga. She earned her RYT-200 in 2019 through the Yoga Mindset School of Yoga and Wellness and is currently working on her RYT-300.
Her passion is for everyone, every time they step on their mats to feel at home in their own body, breath and spirit. She cultivates that focus and intention into her teaching by guiding her students through the asanas as well as moving them into a place of greater compassion through meditation.

Reiki Master
Yoga Instructor, RYT 200

Caroline Kolbet is a Yoga Instructor & Reiki Master practitioner.  In 2017, she received her RYT 200 from Yoga Mindset Yoga & Wellness School.  She enjoys teaching Chair 2 Mat, as well as other styles of yoga.  Loving what yoga did for her mind & body, Caroline also studied the Usui System of Natural Healing & received her attunement for Reiki Master in 2018. 

 "Keeping the spiritual lineage of Reiki alive is important to me.  It allows the living lineage to be authentic & share this powerful healing system."  In our busy world of technology & over-committing ourselves, we rarely take time for self-care.  Reiki is a Japanese method for stress reduction, while promoting relaxation. While in this relaxed environment, healing can occur of the mind, body, & spirit. It is not a substitute for medical care; rather it is another healing modality.

"Reiki is love, love is wholeness, wholeness is balance, balance is well-being, well-being is freedom from disease."  -Dr. Mikao Usui

Jordan Harris

Yoga Instructor, RYT 200

Jordan has been practicing yoga since 2013. When she first began, she was constantly training for different races and noticed how much yoga seemed to help her speed, flexibility, and recovery time.


In 2015 she signed up for her first marathon. She was so excited to complete the race, but she noticed things didn’t feel right in her body. She was constantly dizzy and tired. After a visit to her doctor, Jordan received the diagnosis of MS. Running wasn’t really option anymore. After much research and thought, yoga seemed to be the answer. It has helped her heal in so many ways. As her practice improved, she started noticing her strength coming back.


Her balance improved. She started noticing she handled stress better and felt an overall calmness she hadn’t felt before. Observing these things, Jordan realized yoga wasn’t just about the asanas. It was about the complete picture: mind, body, and soul. She obtained her 200RYT with the goal of helping others find their best selves.

Michele Trumble

Yoga Instructor, RYT 200

Michele Trumble (RTY200, MFA)  has been practicing yoga for over a decade and teaching since 2014. She has completed trainings in both Bikram and Iyengar styles of yoga, which inspire her teachings to be based in the power of proper alignment, breath, and playful exploration. Having worked through knee, hip, shoulder injuries/surgeries at a young age due to professional dance - she approaches movement and yoga from a place of body love and respect.


As a dance professor and choreographer, Michele uses a variety of movement techniques and body awareness practices to enhance her yoga teaching. Known for her light hearted, yet direct approach, she values simplicity, creativity, a little challenge, and a lot of grace in both her own practice and in her teaching. With a subversive  flair, her inspiration for her yoga teaching comes from yogic texts, her love of folk rock, and the community she finds herself immersed in.
