    Kristin Rhoads

    ryt 200, lmt

    Kristin began her journey into wellness over 15 years ago with massage therapy. Having practiced that for 12 years she decided to obtain the proper training for yoga certification to allow the students and clients in her community the ability and tools to strategically combat issues that were presenting in their everyday life. From massage therapy sessions, private yoga therapy sessions, doula, pre and post natal recovery and kids yoga...the yoga studio was created to allow even the beginner an opportunity to step on the mat for the first time and harness their innate ability to heal.


    Workshops, Massage Therapy and One on One Yoga Therapy Available by Appointment Only



    Robyn Bumgarner

    ACE-Certified Health Coach and Personal Trainer

    Robyn Bumgarner is a certified personal trainer, health coach, cancer survivor and general wellness warrior. An avid runner, she discovered yoga one morning shortly after a race left her sore and exhausted. She fell in love with the practice immediately, finding that moving the body with the breath is a path to a quiet and peaceful mind. Her practice focuses on caring for both body and soul, includes restful and challenging aspects, and is accessible to all. Robyn believes strongly that wellness is a journey, not a destination.
