Hillary Wright is a yoga and meditation teacher and has been for almost a decade.  Hillary travels internationally teaching yoga teacher trainings and retreats and holds a 500 ERYT with the Yoga Alliance.

She has an extensive training background studying with many world renowned teachers in the lineages of Ashtanga, Sivananda and Vinyasa, and has taught thousands of hours in these lineages. Her extensive background studying the Ashtanga Vinyasa system brings a solid foundation to her trainings while her deep understanding of Vinyasa Yoga makes her trainings accessible and well-rounded. Hillary has spent the past decade studying all aspects of yoga and teaching. She has spent time living in an ashram in India, teaching in packed studios across New York City, and everything in-between. Hillary is a direct and compassionate teacher who loves to share the art of practicing and teaching yoga.

Kristen Nichols is a Vinyasa and Restorative yoga teacher and teacher trainer that holds a 500 ERYT with the Yoga Alliance.  In 2010 Kristen began her teaching journey in Colorado where she taught and eventually co-owned a yoga studio. She has studied and holds a deep knowledge of a variety of styles that inspire her teachings including Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Yin and more. Pulling from 15 years of classical ballet training her classes have an essence of fluidity and physical intuition combined with an emphasis on strength and foundation. Kristen is a playful instructor who provides an energetic and intelligent practice for her students. 

Casey Layne Anderson is a yoga instructor, meditation teacher, lululemon ambassador, and yoga teacher trainer currently residing and teaching in New York City. With a B.F.A. in Musical Theatre from Carnegie Mellon University, Casey’s passion for acting and singing is directly related to her passion for teaching yoga. Both art forms require presence, connection (to self and others), surrender, and intention. Because of Casey's sensitivity to connection and creating a meaningful experience, her classes defy the usual and provide a special space for students to move through any perceived limitations, mentally and physically. Casey has extensive experience teaching yoga as well as leading yoga teacher trainings in Denver, Pittsburgh, Los Angeles, and New York City. From professional athletes to yogis with extreme physical and mental disabilities, Casey is honored to pass along a practice that has been so meaningful in her life. 


Molly Rice has been teaching a variety of yoga styles for the past six years and practicing yoga for the past ten. With a background in classical dance and a B.F.A. in Musical Theatre, Molly has always been fascinated with movement and the mind body connection. Molly has trained in Vinyasa, Traditional Hot, Hatha, and Thai Yoga Massage. She has studied under master teachers both nationally and internationally in a variety of lineages and loves to practice and teach yoga abroad. A forever student, Molly is constantly deepening her personal practice and continually studying philosophy, psychology, and various yoga related healing modalities. She is humbled and honored to teach both students and teachers alike and intends to continue exploring and sharing yoga around the world indefinitely.
