Jo, CYT-200


Jo's love of yoga began when she read "Yoga for Americans" by Indra Devi.  This was followed by marriage, teaching 4th grade, raising a family, graduate study, teaching 6th grade language arts, and sometimes practicing yoga.
After retirement in 2000, she decided to become serious about studying the practice of yoga.  Nancy Magaret, her mentor and friend, encouraged Jo to follow my heart.  From 2006 to 2013, while teaching at YOGA NOW, a small studio in Canyon, she studied with Tias and Surya Little (Prajna Yoga, Santa Fe, NM) and Gary Kraftsow (Viniyoga founder).  Her large collection of books about teaching yoga help Jo continue to study. Her certified yoga hours equal 285.  She is thankful for the opportunity to be included on the teaching staff at Crossties Yoga, and plans to practice yoga the rest of my life!

Annabeth, Zumba

Annabeth attended her first Zumba class about 10 years ago and fell in love! The upbeat music, fun atmosphere and easy dance moves changed exercise for her forever. It made the hour-long workout go so much faster and she NEVER wanted to miss a class!

It was a long comeback but Annabeth finally make it back to Zumba classes with Jenni. Then in August 2018 decided to go ahead and get her Zumba certification.
