She wrote a thesis on Perspectives of Inquiry: How Challenging Current Accepted Beliefs can Successfully Silence Open and Free Scientific Discourse. From her time spent in university, Jocelyn realized she culminated knowledge rich in study, yet felt inept when it came to personal experience. Upon graduation, the opportunity to become a successful journalist no longer interested Jocelyn, so she chose to take a hiatus from her academic studies and become a river guide. For seven years, Jocelyn spent much of her time in the backcountry and traveling abroad. She spent time working and studying in Peru, Nepal, Tibet, Turkey, Spain, and other parts of world, while embracing the history and cultural background. When she wasn’t traveling abroad, Jocelyn found solitude on the rivers in Idaho exploring the depths of nature, whilst seeking out the meaning of life and pursuing a career in environmental consulting.
Jocelyn completed her 200-hour yoga teacher training in Idaho with Tantra Power Yoga, under the guidance of Jodie Lea, in 2018. She has been a dedicated student of yoga for 12+ years and continues to expand her understanding of the 5,000+ year-old practice and apply the teachings to her own life on a daily basis.

Kasey came to yoga from a lifetime of athletics and manual labor. From growing up the second of eight children working on dairy farms, to collegiate rowing, to bicycle racing, to wild land firefighting, Kasey has had dirt under her nails and calluses on her hands for many moons. She came to yoga as a physical pursuit and kept coming back because it made her feel better. As she delves deeper into the teachings of yoga what strikes her is the beautiful simplicity and accessibility of what if means to lead a good life! She began teaching yoga because she truly loves sharing the experience of doing something that has such profound effects on people and they walk away thinking “That’s just what I needed!”
