Timbrel found yoga at a time in her life when peace was her main goal. As a young mother of one (at the time), she went to her first class at the young age of 18 in a quiet and musky studio tucked in downtown Austin. This was the beginning of a love affair. Eventually, she pursued yoga training in early 2011 earning a 225 hour certification with Brooke Boon, author of Hatha Yoga Illustrated. Less than a year after receiving her certification, she flew through a windshield in a car accident, breaking her back. The doctor said that had her back not been so supple, flying through the air like a rag doll would have certainly killed her. Yoga, quite simply, saved her life that day. She taught in Hawaii before moving to the heart of Texas where she resumed her teaching career. She has since earned another 200 hour certification from Yoga Yoga. Overall, she has accumulated 425 hours of training. She tends toward gentle yoga flows, as her inclination is to maintain and enjoy the peaceful and quiet aspects yoga has to offer. Whether she is teaching privately or publicly, to adults or to children, her desire is to flourish in this environment while helping those around her to flourish. After all, she is just a flower in the mud.
Erin stumbled upon her first yoga class over 15 years ago, quite by accident. She instantly fell in love with yoga and how it healed her body after a back injury, how it taught her to focus and live in the moment, and how it brought balance to her busy life.

Erin loved the practical applications of yoga in her daily life so much that she used it to help her husband with soccer conditioning to recover from and prevent injuries. She taught it in her dance classes to help her students warm up, stretch, and to strengthen their cores. She practiced yoga throughout all three of her pregnancies. After her first baby was born, she began teaching mom and baby yoga to other interested moms in her community, and soon incorporated a steady schedule of teaching yoga, Pilates, and dance to these moms. As a military wife and mother of three, Erin has taken yoga with her all across the country. 

Erin completed her yoga teacher training through Yoga Yoga in Austin and is now a 200hr-RYT.

Betty is a wife, mother and grandmother with a full time job. She is an animal lover and has given a home to numerous wayward furry souls. Betty thought life was complete with her devotion to her family, grandchildren and grand-puppies until she was introduced to Yoga and all the benefits it entailed. She learned that Yoga was so much more than just another form of exercise for it encompasses our physical, spiritual and emotional being. This awareness brought about a self- searching quest to find her inner peace and a desire to share her passion with others which soon led her to obtaining her 200 hr Yoga Instructor’s Certification with Yama Yoga in Canton, Texas. Betty has found that even in this stressful world, a calming peacefulness can be obtained through Yoga and meditation and she stands ready to share this beautiful practice with you.
