Cacia Lesh has been practicing yoga for ten years and began practicing Anusara Yoga in 2005. She immediately connected with the heart-opening nature of Anusara Yoga and found the Universal Principles of Alignment created by John Friend to be effective in healing injuries and deepening the yogic experience. Her study of Anusara Yoga has brought her joy and inspired her to teach with grace and love. In 2009 she received her 200-hour Hatha Yoga Certification through Deep Peace Yoga with Todd Norian and Ann Greene following a 108-hour Anusara Yoga Immersion.

Part of living with a yogic attitude means celebrating the good in all people and things as well as honoring our unique differences and supporting one another on the path to joy.

Becca Turner began practicing yoga at home in 2005 as an experiment for a behavioral studies class. With limited space, online resources, and lack of human interaction, she was discouraged and felt that her practice was missing a key element. Thankfully, a few years later, after signing up for Tiffany Lenau’s yoga class through North Central Michigan College, she found the missing link. With Tiffany’s guidance through asana and meditation, Becca found a way to connect mind, body, and breath in a calm environment created by space and presence. With a goal of deepening her practice Becca completed Be the Love’s 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training. With this training she looks forward to teaching and creating a presence where her students can sink into their practice.
