The first thing that attracted me to yoga was the movement of it. After gaining a personal practice, I craved more. I became obsessed about sharing this practice with everyone around me. I created my own free yoga class for family and friends, and eventually became certified through Yoga Assets with a 200 Hr YTT. I've been teaching for 6 years and yoga remains such a passionate and important part of my life. I truly am so honored to be able to share this with anyone willing to open themselves up to it.    


Lexi Post

Lexi started practicing yoga as a teen struggling with anxiety. After several years as a student of yoga she made the leap to instructor as a young college student. This decision to teach yoga has served her well. She taught classes at a local studio, drug rehab faculty (volunteer work while finishing her degree in Occupational Therapy), and for cohorts at the University of Utah. 

She instantly fell in love with yoga and teaching  after feeling the effects it had on her students and their body mind connection. Yoga calms and centers her soul and she loves watching this take place in others. For this reason she loves to attach a meditation to all her classes.

Her favorite forms of yoga include Hatha, Vinyasa, kids toga, and prenatal yoga. Her teaching style is calm, respectful, and patient. She uses simple cues and hands on help when needed during class. She strives to keep her classes warm friendly and inviting for all levels of yogis!


Nikole Widdison

Nikole Watkins-Widdison (200 hr RYT)   began practicing Yoga in 2011.  I will always remember when a teacher told her, “You don’t find Yoga, Yoga finds you”.  Since then I knew I  wanted to deepen her knowledge and share her love of yoga with the world. I  enrolled in teacher training and was blessed in her journey in completing her 200 RYT at Timeless Yoga in 2015; not realizing the impact that it would have on my life.  Yoga has truly been a beautiful journey, it has taught me many things about myself and my potential.
As a Chronic Asthmatic and a sufferer from Graves Disease- along with being a Curvy Yogini ; yoga has helped me with building a better foundation between body, mind and breath.
I  believes yoga can heal and transform along with change the way you view yourself- it's a Journey of loving YOU no matter your limitations. My life vision is to continue her journey as a student and as a teacher who guides everyONE. I believes EveryBODY can do Yoga. Just Trust the Journey.


Vicky Turner

I have been practicing yoga since 2003 - 19 years.  I have been teaching yoga for 10 of those 19 years. I have a 200 hour yoga teaching certification. I teach hatha yoga - yoga poses moving with the breath combined with vinyasa yoga a flow of yoga poses strung together.

Yoga has been very healing in my life, physically, mentally and emotionally. I love sharing and practicing yoga with everyone - all levels.That is why I started teaching to share the joy and healing yoga has brought to me.

Om shanti


Allie Bruggeman

I first became interested in yoga when I was 15 and fell in love with how refreshed and calm I felt after every practice. I began to practice yoga regularly and have been teaching since 2016. I am certified in Ashtanga Vinyasa and love attending vinyasa/power yoga classes. Yoga allows me to be my most authentic self and get in touch with my inner most self- this is a gift I wish to give to everyone who practices with me. I am passionate about health and wellness and as a certified Health Coach, I love yoga as a form of stress management and a way to increase mindfulness. I am a huge environmentalist and love talking about sustainability and being out in nature.


Quincie Berube

You know when you find something you love that you are so excited about, you just have to tell every soul? That is yoga for me. 

I struggled to find my place in this big world due to an all-consuming amount of anxiety. Yoga found me, calmed me, taught me, and loved me in a small studio right here in North Ogden. I found me too. Yoga has helped me to see joy in my journey and give myself and others grace. In 2016 I became a RYT200 through Yoga Life Teacher Training. I have been teaching yoga for 4 years and practicing yoga for 10. My current practice consist of Ashtanga or Vinyasa throughout the week with Yin or Bikram yoga on the weekends. I love all types of yoga! There seems to be a style of yoga for every mood. I am consistent with my own personal practice so I can bring new ideas and inspire creativity on my mat. I love learning and growing with everyone that comes to my class.


Kaylie Driver

Yoga found Kaylie when she was a teenager when she was going through a really dark place in her life and it's been an amazing tool for her ever since. Yoga helps her connect with God, with herself and with others and she loves using it to serve in the community. She loves the healing power that comes through movement and the energy flow that Yoga has to offer. Yoga helps you remember to BE YOU!! She teaches a wide variety of styles including Vinyasa, Yin, meditation, and others!


Allie Jorgensen

My love for yoga grew in high school where I began my personal practice. This is where I learned that yoga brings me happiness, mindfulness, less stress, and overall a new way to connect with my body. I began taking classes in college and used yoga as stress management practice and this is where my love for it grew stronger. I received my 200 hour RYT certification through YogaRenew in 2020. I am a new yoga instructor ready to help others back to a happier, healthier, mindful way of life. The way yoga has adapted my life is something special I want to teach and share with others. It has connected me spiritually, mentally, physically and emotionally.


Hanna Hull

Hey I’m Hanna! I’ve been teaching yoga for three years and before that taught tumbling classes. I’ve always loved moving my body and finding new ways to improve my mental and physical health. I’m also a nursing student hoping to work in pediatrics when I graduate. I’ve loved the way yoga has been able to keep me grounded even with a crazy schedule.


Ariel Mierendorf

Ariel has worked (and played) in the fitness industry for over a decade as a personal trainer and group fitness instructor. After a scary stage 4 cancer diagnosis in 2021, she has leaned into her knowledge of holistic health where the practice of yoga has continued to inspire her healing journey. She understands that the mind, body, and spirit are all connected and yoga provides a practice to express strength and resiliency in all of these areas. She says that each day is an absolute gift and encourages her students to tap into the present moment where true healing and deep connection with the Self are possible. 

Ariel seeks to cultivate a community where all people and abilities feel welcomed and celebrated. She is a single mom to a bright 3.5 year old son named Bodhi. She enjoys hiking, live music, good food, and volunteering at a local drug and alcohol recovery center teaching mindful movement and meditation classes. She is currently working towards her 500 hour RYT and looks forward to welcoming you into her classes!
