Sandy started her yoga journey 7 years ago after injuries sustained after 16 years of ballet and a bad fall while rock climbing. While her flows can be athletic she has a strong respect for modification and reminds her students to respect their bodies and their practice while they weave breath to movement.

Yoga began as an option to running in the snow for Nikki. It has since become a lifeline, a life guide, a stress reliever, an opportunity to create space and a space created to go inward. Nikki is a registered yoga teacher with the Yoga Alliance and is dedicated to continuing her mind/body education, and is currently pursuing her certificate in Yoga Therapy. Her favorite part of the practice is that it is ever changing.
She completed a 200-hour teacher training certification at Tranquil Space, DC in 2005. Since then she has also completed Baby and Me teacher training, Pilates certification from the Pilates Institute of MD, Laughing Lotus Super Sequencing 25-hour training, Venice Beach, CA in 2015 and Laughing Lotus Bhakti 50-hour training, Rishikesh, India in 2020.

I began practicing a combination of ashtanga, vinyasa and rocket yoga in 2002 while playing various contact sports. Yoga was a method to cross-train and build strength through flexibility. However, after moving from Texas to DC and on to California and Virginia, I grew more comfortable with different styles and definitions of yoga other than my own. My hope is to showcase a playful practice with inversions and twists to delight the senses. I welcome all students regardless of their experience or perceived abilities to join me and let loose on the mat.

Yoga began as a way to detox from her weekend choices, and to heal an injury for Kathleen.

Olivia began her yoga practice in 2012 in the hot yoga Bikram style in Charlottesville, Virginia. Over the years since, Olivia has practiced yoga in every city and country she has traveled to – and eventually found her yoga home in Falls Church, Virginia.With a focus in mind practice, Olivia has sat two 10-day Vipassana meditation retreats in the Goenka style. Olivia acknowledges that mindfulness practice can take us into the deep complexity of our minds, and focuses on nurturing and guiding students on their journeys inwards – which can be just as challenging as the physical asanas.

In a quest to experience the world, Jennifer discovered the exhilaration and power of soulful living through her yoga practice. The simple tools of moving your body, getting out of your head, and breathing empowered her to face life's challenges head on and come out stronger and happier than ever.

When she's not in the studio, Jennifer is savoring the simple pleasures of life: hiking with her rambunctious pup Luna, gardening with her zen master cat Star, and enjoying time with her pilot husband Eric.

Jen’s yoga journey began with several years of stops and starts until she embraced a daily practice in 2019 to help her process grief and live through loss. Her discovery of Rocket Vinyasa accelerated that transformative process, and yoga took hold. Jen teaches dynamic, energetic vinyasa that draws from the core values and traditions of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga while also creating space for students’ individual control to expand and grow their own personal practice. She strives to meet her students where they are, encouraging modification and acceptance as well as creativity and play. Expect to breathe, sweat, laugh, and try new things, with plenty of opportunities for arm balances and inversions along the way.
She received her 200-hour vinyasa yoga teaching certification and completed an additional 100 hours of training with David Kyle and Kevin Castillo through the Progressive Ashtanga Vinyasa School, becoming a Certified Rocket Vinyasa Teacher. She has also completed a Service and Trauma-Informed Yoga Teacher Training Program with Lara Land and Three and a Half Acres Yoga. You’ll find her in the Mysore room for moving meditation, practicing with the local Rocket community, or volunteer teaching to support local philanthropic organizations.

I discovered yoga as a college kid looking to manage stress and balance out my bookish lifestyle. Since then, it has seen me through all the joys and challenges of early adulthood: grad school, marriage, becoming a mother of twins. I teach a powerful, sweaty, vinyasa flow, linking breath with movement, body with mind. My goal is to both challenge and support every student, to make room for growth.

Yoga has been a part of my life for more than 10 years. I came to yoga exploring workout options. A friend introduced me to Baptiste power vinyasa at a tough time in my life. I loved it. I loved the rigorous, ass kicking quality of the practice. I loved that the teachers encouraged me to breathe through it and stay or go farther. I loved seeing others in the class doing more advanced poses and seeing something to reach toward. I loved that every time I showed up on my mat I was able to do a little more. I could see the progress in what I was able to do. I felt like a badass for that moment. And who doesn’t love feeling like a badass? Yoga challenges my beliefs of what I’m capable of and inspires me to explore possibility. I want to share that and inspire that feeling in others.

April Njari was drawn to the practice of yoga after her first Bikram style class in her hometown of Joplin, MO almost 20 years ago. She deeply connected with the opportunity to engage her body in order to slow down and focus the mind. She enjoys incorporating elements of yoga nidra (deep focused relaxation), guided meditation, chanting and pranayama (breath work) into her classes. Her aim is to support her students in finding stillness and slowing down the pace of life for a while.

As a therapist and student of Buddhist Psychology, I try to incorporate mindfulness and meditation into a high energy but calming practice. My hope is that my students will take the deeply powerful messages of yoga off the mat and into their lives to become the best version of themselves. My professional background includes more than three decades of work with First Responders. I will be bringing a specialized Yoga For First Responders curriculum to Northern Virginia in the very near future. Stay tuned!
