Meet Our Teachers
Toni Lynette Cristy
Toni is a Chicago native. Her 2,000 mile bicycle tour was reduced to 300 miles by a still ongoing layover in Louisville, Kentucky.
An outpouring of love from the Louisville yoga community, friends, and family encouraged her to not let money be a factor in yoga teacher training. Kentucky Yoga Initiative saw her dedication and awarded her a partial scholarship.
All that love encouraged her to become a community activist and leader. She's now a Power Yoga Teacher graduate, serving multiple community classes, kids classes, chair classes, and private sessions.

Betsy Durham 200 RYT, has been teaching Hatha Yoga since 2016. She completed her training at Supreme Peace Yoga and Wellness in Louisville, KY. She was drawn to Yoga because of the physical practice, which was recommended to her by her Chiropractor to help alleviate her chronic neck and back pain. Instead of trying out a few classes she chose to jump right in and become a teacher.
“I knew this was something I wanted in my life every day, I also knew I wanted to teach others how to heal and take care of their bodies. I did take a big risk jumping right into a teacher training with only a handful of yoga classes prior to it, but I am so glad I did!”
Betsy grew up on a small farm in Buffalo, KY where she spent many years connecting with animals and nature. This grew into a love for outdoor adventure that fuels her fire for personal and communal growth. She loves finding creative ways to connect people to themselves, through yoga as well as to the world around them. She has a wide variety of classes that she offers in the community like Hatha, restorative, and cat and goat yoga!

Resembling an arch: breath is linked with movements that slowly increase in intensity to reach a peak of an elevated heart rate and engagement of all different muscle groups. Movements then slowly lower the heart rate and relax the muscles once again to transform and energize participants.

Vinyasa flow focused on combining breath and movement to help people feel empowered and more at home in their bodies.
Hannah began her yoga journey a few years ago during a difficult season. She started practicing at a local climbing gym seeking some relief from anxiety and some extra movement. Come to find out, yoga was that, and so much more. For Hanna, yoga has been a catalyst to immeasurable healing and growth. This is why she is so passionate about sharing yoga with the community. There is something about connection to movement with breath that creates a space for stillness of the mind. Creating that space to be present and to let go of the past and stop worrying about the future, even for just an hour, allows us to remember who we are and step in to our highest potential.
