Jenna holds a 200 hr E-RYT with Yoga Alliance and has taught in the US and Abroad since 2010. She has a BA in Eastern Philosophy and Indigenous Education, but her true vedantic lineage comes through 4 + years of study at Arsha Vidya Gurukulam and independently with Teachers of the Swami Dayananda Saraswati Lineage.

Heidi Suke - 200 hr RYT
Heidi shares: I’ve been practicing yoga for the past 11 years and began teaching seven years ago at Urban Yoga Spa in Seattle. I am registered with the Yoga Alliance and have completed my Level 1 and 2 teacher trainings with Baron Baptiste, as well as many other master classes and trainings.
Teaching for me is all about possibility, simplicity, and connection. We live in a world of information overload – where busier is better. My goal as an instructor is to create and hold space for you – where you are able to move, breathe, inquire, let go and connect. Aside from guiding you through intuitive yet challenging flows, my favorite things about teaching include creating fun playlists and offering hands on assists.
My husband and I moved to the island from Seattle last summer and have since started a family! We welcomed our little girl Eva Lucille into the world back in May. On top of being a mother, I enjoy reading, traveling, cooking, writing and shopping. (After all, yoga is about balance, right?!)
