Ilona Instructor: Ilona Moore (RYT500) started questioning her life and she began probing into the deep layers of her soul on a quest to find meaning. It was then that yoga opened its door to her and she began a self-study. From the beginning of her journey, she was immediately intrigued and quickly realized that it would not be a passing interest, but something infinitely more profound. Ilona found that yoga does not reveal itself all at once, but is to be discovered as you live it, one day at a time. Yoga quickly became a way of life and she realized that she could not contain it and was meant to share it. For Ilona, the practice is similar to a bottomless container: the more you share, the more you have. And so, she chooses to share!

Sonya Kuropatwa Instructor: Sonya Kuropatwa, gentle guidance and loving touch extends from her fascination with the body as an instrument of spiritual and creative expression. Sonya came to yoga after more than 20 years a s a classically trained dancer, teacher, and choreographer as a means to further understand the mysteries of the mind-body connection. She has witnessed and guided her students through the wonders of movement, self-awareness, and connection. Her belief in the magic of touch as a means of healing and as a conduit for energy informs her teaching style, which relies strongly on imagery, humor, joy, and hands-on interaction.

Karen Sartori Instructor: Karen Sartori’s yoga journey began as she searched for relief from workplace stress and from the demands of being a corporate banker. After her first yoga class, she was immediately captivated by the mind-body connection, the calming effect she felt on her nervous system, and the ability to use breathing to reduce anxiety, influence emotion, and remain present. She quickly realized what a powerful and profound practice she had found, and she is honored to share the benefits of this ancient practice through teaching others. Karen’s classes fully encourage and support each yogi’s personal journey, inward focus, and exploration of the mind-body connection in a nurturing and safe environment that is welcoming to students of all-levels.
