Jessi Byrne

Yoga Instructor
Meditation Guide

Jessi is a certified Hatha & Vinyasa Yoga Teacher through the Yoga Alliance approved 200 hour certification led by Jennifer Yarrow and Jennilee Toner in Costa Rica in 2015.
Her focus is on proper alignment, safety, & hands on assists.
She is currently working on her 300YTT certification with Frog Lotus, and now Thai Massage Certified through the Triple Gem School of Thai Massage.

Jessi first came to know Yoga in 2007 for an "easy" college credit.
Even though she had been previously interested in Yoga, she had no idea the depth and the beauty which lies within the practice.
Having always been active; a dedicated trained dancer for nearly 20 years, an Equestrian rider & trainer for 25 years, along with various recreational sports, there always comes injury.
Finding many fitness practices left her misaligned and nursing strained muscles and joints, Yoga was the only practice she walked away from feeling whole.
Diving into the world of Yoga, Jessi found that it not only supported her body, but her mind and spirituality as well.  
Now she desires to spread the knowledge, the physical healing, and the depth of spirit with those who are curious and come with an open heart and mind.

Nancy Shutler

Certified Tai Chi Instructor

Nancy  has practiced Tai Chi for 29 years 
and is an experienced teacher of 16 years. 
 She is certified by the Tai Chi for Health Institute. 

 Scientific studies have shown Tai Chi to 
improve health, balance, and quality of life. 
Regular Tai Chi practice improves balance, coordination and flexibility; it strengthens muscles and bones, 
improves circulation to internal organs and calms the mind and nervous system. 
 Tai Chi's flowing movements open the energy meridians of the body, eliminating blockages and allowing the free flow of chi (vital life energy) throughout the systems. 
 To learn Tai Chi, one practices a series of postures and movements that are performed slowly and continuously. Moving slowly allows the mind to become deeply concentrated on the precise movements. Thus, Tai Chi has a calming and centering effect, much like the effect brought about by meditation. 
 In fact, Tai Chi has been called "Meditation in Motion" and also "Medication in Motion" (Harvard Medical School).

Pamela June

Yoga Instructor

I started practicing yoga ten years ago 

as a way to reduce stress. 

I loved that yoga helped to quiet the mind, and I was amazed to learn what it could do for my body, too! 

Since then, I have learned that yoga helps provide the fullest experience of ourselves. 

It builds strength, balance, and flexibility in more ways than one, putting us in touch with our movements and thoughts and empowering us to become the best version of ourselves.

Outside of yoga, I am a full-time 

English professor and cat lover. 

I moved to Wheeling five years ago, 

and I have grown fond of the city's walking trails, the small businesses, and the many festivals. 

I also volunteer at the local homeless coalition. I have truly grown to love life, and I can’t wait to share this passion with others through yoga.

Cathy Downing

Yoga Instructor

I was introduced to yoga well over 12 years ago as a way to combat sore muscles & joint dysfunction created by lifting heavy weights in the gym.  
A dedicated, deeper practice developed after yoga was integrated with physical therapy for me 
to better recover from knee surgery. 
I had a heart felt calling to share the benefits and practice of yoga with others so I completed a 
200 hr. YogaWorks certified teacher training. 
I became a Yoga Alliance RYT two years after the knee surgery.  
Yoga has become part of my lifestyle, but I also enjoy time my grown daughters, spoiling my cats and grand-fur babies, collecting tattoos, working on my miniature dollhouse, and yes, still lifting heavy things.  
My day is not complete without chocolate and coffee.
