| JILL KRAZ |
.Jill’s passion for fitness has taken her around the world. She has spent months surfing, hiking, and exploring far off lands: Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Australia, Hawaii, and many of the Fijian and Samoan Islands. She lived in New Zealand for a year and a half working as an exercise specialist and as Red Cross instructor in 2011. Traveling became an outlet for her early on and made her feel fully ALIVE.
Jill graduated from the University of North Carolina-Wilmington where she ran track/cross country and graduated with a degree in Exercise Science. She kept herself busy to say the least, working up to three jobs at once to save for her next adventure. Her day job consists of teaching cycling, boot camps, surf/paddleboard lessons and personal training. Now the only problem is, she has trouble staying still.
And that’s where yoga found its way in! Given her active and fast-paced lifestyle, yoga did not initially feel good. In fact, it wasn’t until a few months later that she experienced something new: a total relaxed body and mind. Her ability to lie flat in savasana was a miracle. Yoga began to restore her soul without having to go anywhere but inside herself.
One miniature accomplishment led to another and by 2015 she became so passionate about the practice that she decided to take on a 200-hour teacher training. Jill is now a registered yoga teacher and excited to see where this journey takes her!
| AIMEE SEAL |
Aimee’s journey into yoga began in college when she took her first yoga class in college while earning her degree in Psychology and Social Work. Yoga was re-introduced into her life in the mid 1990’s when she was teaching aerobics and fitness classes at a gym and began taking a new class called Flexible Strength, which was really a yoga class but not called that as the yoga boom had not yet caught on. She loved the relaxed sense of peace and vitality and the deep stretching and flexibility she experienced and discovered that she wanted to learn more about yoga. She took a Swaroopa yoga teacher training in Rehoboth Beach, DE in 2004 and began teaching shortly thereafter. In 2007 she enrolled in the 200 hour teacher training at Golden Heart Yoga in Annapolis, MD and upon completion took the additional 300 hour advanced training the following year.Subsequent trainings include Prenatal Yoga training, Yoga Nidra, and Advanced Pranayama and Asana trainings. She has been teaching to various levels of practitioners in her home studio and in studios and gyms in the Annapolis/Crofton area. Aimee’s classes offer an alignment based asana practice blended with conscious breathwork for a mindful vinyasa flow combined with longer holds, restorative poses and deep guided meditation.

| CHARLIE BAUER |
Charlie is a lifelong athlete. He competed in many sports during his high school and college career. With the encouragement of close friends, he came to yoga looking for an alternative way to stay healthy and not abusing his body on a daily basis. Once he discovered yoga in 2007 he immediately noticed the benefits in his other athletic activities as well as off the field of competition. Charlie became a dedicated practitioner in 2009 and in 2013 trained with Kim Manfredi. While his training is rooted in the Hatha tradition his classes are influenced by a variety of different styles he has and continues to experience. His curiosity with the movement of the human body continues to drive him towards continued learning and sharing that with his students. His classes are energetic and light-hearted infused with upbeat music while including lots of twists, inversions, and different balancing poses. Students are encouraged to take the competition out of their practice and focus on their journey as a yogi. Charlie hopes to help share the many benefits he has experienced from practicing yoga and have his students leaving class feeling stronger, more energized, and more balanced
