Anna has always enjoyed physical activity as part of a balanced lifestyle. She enjoys cycling, running, and strength training. She quickly found yoga to be an excellent cross training option and fell in love with the mindfulness aspect of yoga, which requires being present in both the mind and body. As a mental health therapist, Anna recognizes the far reaching benefits of yoga and meditation for a healthy body, mind, and spirit. In her classes Anna hopes to settle the monkey brain and encourage self love along with personal growth. Anna obtained her 200 hour training at Flourish Yoga + Wellbeing and loves being a part of the yoga community. She is currently enrolled in a 500 training with Cityoga.
Lindsay took her first yoga class in college and continued off and on for several years until she and her mother decided to embark on the most wonderful journey together. At the convincing of her mother, Anna Tallant, they both signed up to obtain their 200 hour yoga teacher certification. While Lindsay started yoga for the physical aspect, she was certainly benefiting mentally from her practice prior to teacher training, but she truly didn’t realize until her studies with Jen Xanders at Flourish Yoga + Wellbeing how vast the mental benefits can be. Since teacher training, yoga has been an essential tool in managing anxiety and depression for Lindsay and she is thrilled to share the mental and physical benefits of yoga with her students at Exhale Yoga. Please join Lindsay on your mat to focus on inhaling love and exhaling all the bullshit.
Eileen began practicing yoga 5 years ago and fell in love with the connection of mind, body, and breath. She was diagnosed with Stage 3 colon cancer, April 2012, had surgery, and 8 months of chemotherapy. After the surgeon released her, Eileen continued to practice yoga through her treatment. Some days she was a bit wobbly, but the practice helped her to feel normal during that time. Eileen truly believes yoga made a miserable situation much better, if not saved her life. She has lived in Fishers for 20 years with her husband, Mark. She has 3 grown sons, two charming daughter-in-laws, and a very active 5-year-old grandson. Eileen loves hiking, and if she is not practicing yoga, she is at Fort Harrison State Park with her dog, Bo.
Carol started taking yoga classes over 20 years ago as a way to improve her flexibility. She quickly learned that yoga was much more than being able to touch your toes. As she grew to love all aspects of yoga – body, mind and spirit, she wanted to share this love with others and became an instructor 10 years ago. She believes that yoga is available to everyone – young or old, with any level of experience or ability. In her classes she offers adaptations to meet the experience and abilities of her students.
Carol has been the instructor in a research project through the IUPUI School of Physical Therapy with the goal of creating an adaptive yoga class for those who have had strokes or other brain injuries. Over 50 research subjects and their caregivers have discovered that yoga truly is for every body.
Carol currently teaches an early morning warm vinyasa class at Exhale Yoga.
Jenn entered into the professional world of fitness and personal development in 2011 as she herself strived to create a healthier and more balanced lifestyle as a mom of 3 lively teenage boys and fashion entrepreneur. Centering herself with a regular yoga practice in 2014, Jenn entered into the life transforming 200 hour yoga certification process in 2015 through Flourish Yoga + Wellbeing by the compassionate guidance of established yoga teacher, Jen Xanders.
Jenn is grateful and humbled each day to connect with her students and share the healing art of yoga. Yoga provides us with mindful tools to meet and embrace life with an open heart and wise mind. While on our mats, we will inhale the life giving energy which nourishes our hearts and spirits while we exhale the nonessential thoughts and noise interrupting our higher vibration of living authentically.
Ashley Luoma Millwee
Ashley began her fitness journey after becoming a stay-at-home mom to her two girls and deciding to get her health back on track in 2013. What started as a solo journey became a love for Group Fitness and eventually the discovery of yoga. Ashley has been a Certified Group Fitness Instructor and Yoga Instructor since 2016. She took her first yoga class on a whim (as a way to stretch after other workouts) and it soon developed into her favorite way to work out, challenge herself and her body. Ashley believes that yoga should be accessible, fun and non-intimidating for everyone, even people “who don’t like yoga.” When Ashley is not teaching Power Yoga classes, she teaches strength and toning classes, attends cardio classes and runs to stay fit (and sane!). Family, friends and health are her three priorities and she feels blessed to be able to live a life that allows her to focus on those elements daily.
