Rejys Cowan is a 200hr Yoga Alliance Certified Yoga Teacher from the Atlanta, GA area, life coach, holistic healer, and podcast host. She has practiced yoga personally off and on over the past 10 years, but it wasn't until the pandemic in 2020 when she decided to commit to her practice and expand her reach by becoming a yoga teacher. After working in healthcare for over 7 years as a Radiologic Technologist, she decided to leave her job to pursue yoga and wellness full-time to help others create the balance in their daily lives that they desire. 

Kim Norvell was introduced to yoga for the first time in February 2011 by a roller derby teammate. After years of wanting to try yoga, she finally agreed to attend a class. It was exactly what she needed to balance out her Type A personality and passion for a female aggressive sport. She quickly discovered that a regular Power Yoga practice not only suited her physically, but transformed her mental state as well, allowing her to find a more peaceful and loving way of life.

In 2012, Kim completed her 200 Hour Teacher Training at Savannah Power Yoga, and from there went on to complete Baptiste Certification as well as reaching her goal of becoming an E-RYT 500 Yoga Teacher. She has taught many classes over the past ten years as she believes strongly in sharing the power of movement, breath, and mindfulness. It changed her life for the better, and it can do the same for you. Kim is looking forward to getting to know all of the current (and future) Yogis here!

Fun facts: Kim loves sunshine, renovating old homes, and spending time with her people and two Dobermans!

Katie Russell started her yoga journey over 10 years ago in Clarksville, TN. She grew to love yoga because of the stillness that it brought to her mind both on and off the mat. Katie shows this passion while guiding others to find this same love of yoga. Though her yoga journey is consistently changing it has always brought her peace and joy. She believes yoga heals the mind, body, and soul. She also believes yoga helps those who practice, find balance and empowers people to appreciate and accept where they are. Yoga is a journey of the self, to the self, through the self.

Katie completed her 200 hr training in June 2019 at Hayat Yoga Shala in Fayetteville, NC. She is also Warriors at Ease level 1 certified. This is a military-specific, trauma-informed, evidence-based, adaptive program. As a US Army Veteran, being able to provide specific needs of yoga to our nation's greatest is essential.

Katie also loves traveling, music, art and being on the water with her husband, daughter and three dachshunds. Katie is excited to meet new people and share the love of her passions with those around her.
