Bree Jennerjahn - CYT
Hatha, Yin, Prenatal
Bree was first introduced to the practice of yoga at the age of 16 as the perfect addition to increase her flexibility within her very physically active lifestyle. At the time she did not realize the importance the practice would have in her life. At the age of 19, a serious back injury would lead to months of slow rehabilitation, taking Bree away from the overly active life she had known. After months of slowly gaining back strength, she would step back on her yoga mat with new eyes and intention. Bree learned the value of creating ease in the mind and body and the importance of taking time to honor her body as it healed. Yoga allowed Bree to build herself back up, both physically and mentally. By 2014, Bree had become a dedicated yoga practitioner, which led her to crave more knowledge of this wonderful tradition. In 2015, she began her journey to educate herself by deepening her knowledge and after completing her 200 hour teacher training course with North Texas Yoga in 2016, Bree immediately began sharing the practice within her community. She has continued to pursue her desire for deepening the practice of yoga for herself and others by working toward the completion of her 500 hour teacher training.
Bree's focus in her teaching is to help her students take a step back from their hectic lives, assist them in slowing down, and give each person that well-deserved time for peace. While Bree teaches many styles of yoga, she has a deep passion for balance and slowing things down with practices such as restorative, yin, gentle, and hatha yoga.
Off the yoga mat, Bree is a professional photographer, travel junkie, and full-time dog mom.
Paige Perry - CYT
Vinyasa Flow, Gentle
Paige started practicing yoga in her twenties as a good way to exercise and increase flexibility. Over the years, she started practicing less as life got hectic, and she sustained different injuries from a variety of physical activities. She found herself overworked, stressed out, and exercising with no real benefit. After the birth of her 3rd child, Paige was seeking a more balanced lifestyle, so she committed herself to learning more about yoga and the mental benefits it could bring to her life. Paige learned to be present, mindful, and to connect with her breath. She also found herself getting stronger, becoming flexible, and doing things she never thought she could do. She fell in love with the practice and couldn't wait to learn how to share her love of yoga with others. Paige made the commitment to teacher training and completed her 200 hour yoga teacher training in 2017 with North Texas Yoga. She enjoys sharing the practice of yoga and the growth she sees in her fellow practitioners. Having injuries herself, she aims to help her students practice safely, yet have fun. Always a student first and eager to learn more, she practices as often as she can. Off the mat, she has a full-time career in medical sales and enjoys an active life with her husband, 3 children, and 2 dogs.
Cheryl Callon - RYT, MFA
Cheryl has been dancing for 30 years and holds a BFA and MFA in dance from Sam Houston State University.

Since 2008, she has been teaching for Collin College and was formerly with Eastfield College and Richland College. She enjoys the challenge of teaching multiple genres, including ballet, modern, tap, jazz, and hip hop.

In 2011, Cheryl discovered how beneficial yoga can be to dancers and athletes. She fell in love with this ancient mind-body practice and its therapeutic abilities for people of all walks of life.
