YOUR GYPSY INSTRUCTORS

Step out of the shadows and into the light! Dee has transformed her once unfulfilled, gloomy past into a bright shining beacon of love and happiness. In 2012, overweight and titter-tottering on the verge of a serious depression, Dee decided to take up yoga in the hopes of distracting herself from her current state of being, but what she discovered was something much more profound.

 

As her practice evolved, she could feel her heart open, her mind become more aware, her body become stronger, and her spirit soar to new depths of existence.

 

Dee is current owner of YogaGypsy and has completed her 500-hour teacher certification under Teri Honeysuckle. When she is not on her mat or in the studio, you can find her outside hiking around in the woods, in her kayak, or practicing SUP (stand up paddle board) yoga on Beaver Lake. Dee admits that her strong connection to nature, paired with regular yoga practice is the reason why she is here today to share this beautiful practice with the rest of the world!

Meet Jordan Workman, 23 years of age, and has been practicing yoga for a little over 3 years! Her practice began with high hopes and dreams of being able to balance on her hands, stand on her head, and to be able to perform all advanced poses. So she started her practice at home with a cheap mat, yoga block, and a ‘yoga for beginner's’ book from the 1970's that was given to her from a friend. 

For the next two years, her practice consisted of looking at poses on Instagram and then twisting her body uncomfortably until it looked as though she was replicating them.

She took a yoga class here and there, but nothing ever clicked and therefore she never returned. January 2016 came along and all those feelings changed. She bought the 20 days unlimited for $20 class pass at YogaGypsy, all thanks to a friend staying on her booty to sign up. She left her pride and ego outside of the gypsy doors, and fell in love. Not just with the studio, but the energy it held, the people who practiced there, the teachers, and most importantly she was finally starting to fall in love with herself. A year later the opportunity arose to sign up for teacher training. She was TERRIFIED!!! She hated public speaking, but was VERY interested in learning more about the practice she had ended up falling in love with.

 

May 2017 she received her 200 hour teacher training certification, and not even a month later she was so, SO thrilled to be asked to join the team. YogaGypsy will ALWAYS have such a special and wonderful place in her heart. One of her intentions as an instructor is to help others experience and unlock ties and feelings that we all experience with each of our own practices; inspiring others to appreciate the hard and ugly moments that can appear every day off of our mats, just as much as the other extremities. Magic happens on your mats, meet her there! For questions or concerns her email is jordannworkman@gmail.com

Growing up, Karlee was never know as the "athletic type." She tried variations of workouts to realize none fit her just right, until she attended her first yoga class in 2014. What started out as a "fun workout" soon became a spiritual, mindful practice. Her practice evolved into one of feeling connected deeply to the Spirit within herself. 

 

She started the journey of completing her yoga certification in January 2017 under Teri Honeysuckle & received her 200HR certification in May 2017. This experience has changed her life forever! Her class will leave you feeling refreshed & free. Her energetic teaching style will pump you up in mind & spirit! You'll be challenged to take what you learn on your mat to the real world, to help you grow in ways you've never experienced before. Karlee will lead you into a space of getting out of your mind & into the present moment in what she calls "practicing the present." When not on her mat, you can find her working on a hand embroidery project & hanging out with her husband & beloved pup, Lexi.

Big thank you, hugs, and love to all that have supported me and continue to support me on this new journey of my life. I started yoga a little over five years ago. I was out of shape, stressed out, and a little lost spiritually. My job was killing me and my only child had just left for college. That was when I wandered into my first yoga studio.

Early on yoga had answers to questions I didn’t know I had yet.

I was very fortunate to meet my first mentor in the yoga community! 

 

It took me over 2 years of practice before I let go and took RYT training. I had no clue if I would ever teach yoga but I felt I needed to go to that next step. Teacher training was up there in the top 5 hardest and the most rewarding things I’ve ever done for myself.

I have never regretted any of it!

Hello beautiful beings! I am so grateful to have the opportunity to spread the healing of yoga through mind-body-spirit connection. I began my journey with yoga back in early 2016 and fell in love with the practice immediately. I just recently completed my 200 YTT with Yoga Gypsy, here in Northwest, AR.

Yoga transformed my life in the best way possible and continues to do so each and every day, moment by moment, breathe by breathe. I have been in dark spaces in life and this practice has been my saving grace, and lit the path to the journey within-- and that is what I wish to share with the world. Healing, love, and light. Come as you are and together let's shift into a higher perspective, coming into our bodies, and into our hearts.

Looking forward to connecting and sharing space with you all. Namaste.

I began my yoga journey when my youngest was in preschool. I was looking for a new exercise routine to get back in shape. After 10 years of gym yoga, I found YogaGypsy and my life (and yoga practice) has not been the same since. The teachers there had something that I craved. I took the leap of faith and completed my 200 hours in 2019 with no intention of teaching yoga. A huge road block for me was the thinking that my hips aren’t flexible enough and I can’t do all those fancy poses. When I changed my mindset to: I am good enough right now, I felt the push to share my love of yoga with others. Yoga for me became a balance of mental and physical flexibility. 

As a new retired stay at home mom, I get to continue to extend my caregiving to beginner students and guide them in a Vinyasa flow class. 


My class is for everyone, and every level. We are all beginners in some way. Class starts  with a gentle  warm up and moves to general standing poses with time to feel each pose in your body. Class ends with floor stretching and a longer savasana. I like to place a physical challenge in there somewhere to not only stretch the students body but their mind as well. So instead of I can’t do it, at least they can try. We laugh a lot....maybe break down walls to start to love ourselves more where we are today.
