Jebbye Lemons, Owner/Yoga Instructor

I began my yoga journey in 2013 while stationed in San Diego doing Bikram method several times a week. After I retired from the Navy and moved back to the Pensacola area I wanted to continue doing yoga and discovered that there are more types of yoga than just Bikram. I realized I didn’t have to be flexible, strong, fit or a runner; I have found in yoga there is something for everyone. I decided to step out of my comfort zone and take various types of yoga classes. There was so much more to yoga that I wanted to expand my knowledge. This started my journey of getting 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training (YTT) certified at URU. I love the way I feel after a yoga class, the relaxed mind, stretched out body, and the calmness that comes over me. I wanted to bring yoga to our town of Pace and opened up Your Pace Yoga Studio in June of 2018. I hope that you will take that first step and join me in discovering that Yoga is much more than a good stretch. It’s aligns your body, mind, and breath.

Kristen Pierce, Owner/Yoga Instructor

In 2016, Kristen found her passion helping others find their strength and confidence through fitness. She is a certified group fitness instructor and 200hr certified yoga teacher. She began her journey searching for healthier ways to manage her own ADHD, anxiety and depression. She first developed a love for running and group fitness. These strenuous exercises lead to several injuries. Looking for other ways to fulfill her passion of fitness she found yoga. Only after a few classes she felt the mental and physical healing benefits of yoga, leading her to sign up for teacher training at URU in Pensacola. Her journey through training and the practice of yoga has opened her to a deeper level of body awareness and mindfulness in all areas of her life. Her favorite yoga classes and teaching style is a subtle energetic flow which connects the body in a careful, conscious way to experience every sensation that practicing yoga offers. She invites her students to find inner stillness in an active way to cultivate balance in all aspects of their life. This is Yoga. This is Kristen.

Bethany Snisky Yoga Instructor

I’ve had training in Yin yoga, with Josh Summers in 2016 at Fish Tree Yoga Studio and I’m a proud graduate of the 2017/2018 YTT group through URU. I also teach at UWF, along with subbing at Goldilocks Yoga in Pace. A car accident is what got me serious in my yoga practice, I was told my life would forever include taking pain medications and needing physical therapy. After a time of doing these things & being told “this is as good as it’s going to get”, I decided, that will not be my future. So I changed it. This took me a long time to do, but it was beyond worth it. My goal for teaching yoga is to help others feel like their old selves, or even better, like a brand new, happier, healthier human. Especially after a life hardship that has gotten them down, a car accident or anything for that matter. Yoga has made me a more gentle, kind, accepting and understanding human. If I could get others to practice and get the same kind of results for them, I would feel beyond grateful. I feel very strongly that practicing & teaching yoga is my purpose in life. The energy I get from teaching is like nothing I’ve experienced before. I look forward to learning with you. My personal favorites are, yin yoga, restorative, & gentle classes. Please, feel free to take a nap after practicing with me, I welcome your snores.

Olga Yoga Instructor

Hello, my friends. My name is Olga. I practiced yoga for almost 4 years. I was a student for URU in Pensacola, FL. I found Yoga by accident. I was diagnosed with Lupus many years ago and my health was so poor. I wanted to change my life and tried to find a way to support my body and mind. I began to go to classes as often as I can. With a great help of my wonderful teachers I began to be addicted to yoga. As a result of my growing attachment, I learned more about it and graduate from 200 hours Sivananda yoga teacher training in Tulum, Mexico. While practicing and going deep into yoga, I learned many things about myself, such as keeping calm in life, not getting attached to material things, and understanding that the discipline of yoga helps me to live in harmony with myself and with other people, animals and the environment. I like to share my yoga journey with others, bringing inspiration to others to make their lives better.

Sandra Yoga Instructor

My name is Sandra Kooh, Yoga has been part of my life for the past 2 years. Yoga has helped me tap into my inner strengths, it has led me to live a more mindful life. I completed my 200 hour Baptiste power yoga training with Fish Tree Yoga in Pensacola, Fl. I aim to always be a student of the practice. In my classes I encourage my students to trust their capabilities and my hope is that when you step off the mat you are able to see the world in a whole new light, with a stronger mind and body.

Meagan Yoga Instructor

I grew up an athlete playing basketball and running track and cross country. I was constantly competing and training and by the time I graduated high school I was completely burned out and not interested in any form of exercise at all. I found yoga 5 years ago and I won’t lie. I hated it at first. Nothing about the yoga postures were familiar to me and I felt silly and frustrated that I couldn’t make my body do what I wanted. But I stuck with it and after a few months it started to get easier. My body was changing! I also noticed a huge change in my every day I life. Yoga was shaping me into a better person and helping tremendously with my depression and anxiety which was a huge relief. After a couple of years I decided to get certified to teach so I could share my passion. I teach mostly flow based classes that are deeply focused on anatomy. I believe knowledge about the body empowers us to make the right choices for ourselves in our yoga practice. But my main goal as a teacher now is to guide my students through the physical practice of asana and show them how what we do on our mat can translate into skill sets to help us live better lives off our mat.
