JENNIFER BOCHIK  (CYT, RYT) Jennifer has been practicing Yoga since 1995 after the birth of her
daughter and has been hooked ever since.  Her curiosity has led her to study many different styles with

to its full potential physically and spiritually.  She also includes some Yoga Therapeutics and self-care
techniques in her classes to help relieve chronic pain and tension.  She truly believes that Yoga is accessible
to everybody and welcomes all levels in her classes.

CAMILLE CHAMPA  Camille began her yoga journey in 2004 when she stumbled upon a yoga class at her
local Fitworks gym.  After attending class steadily and feeling great physically and mentally she wondered
why everyone doesn't do this all the time.  She continued a steady practice while attending Ohio University
and a few years after graduation she embarked on the teacher training journey, completing her 200 hour
certification with Marni Task in May 2013.  Camille keeps her classes grounding and powerful while focusing
on movement with breath.

years, she met and studied with Marni Task, receiving her 200 hr certificate in February 2010.  She tries to
keep her classes light hearted and fun while teaching proper alignment and movement with breath.  

BECCA KOCHER (CYT) Becca credits her biomedical engineering background with her deep love and
understanding of the human body.  It is with this love and understanding that she focuses on optimal
alignment of the body in her yoga classes, teaching her students to trust in their bodies and open to the
possibilities of healing from within. Becca completed her 200 hour teacher training with Marni Task in 2012.  

LESLIE RAFFERTY (CYT) Leslie (Siri Avtar Kaur) started taking Kundalini Yoga classes with Sierra Hollister

certified at the 220 hour level in Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan.  She has taken classes in Iyengar,
Vinyasa, Ashtanga, general Hatha, and Svaroopa Yoga, and thus has some familiarity with these styles, but
