Aubrey Bates began a yoga practice in 2010 and something stirred. She followed that stirring and in a hot power vinyasa class, something awoke. Not knowing what that "something" was, she continued following her practice, finally identifying it during teacher training at Amazing Yoga in 2014. Herself. Yoga has taught her how to overcome her fears, to feel strong and free and to courageously follow the passion of helping others to do the same. As a teacher, her favorite classes will make you sweat, challenge you to places beyond where you thought you were capable. And then, best of all, she'll celebrate alongside you the mental, physical and spiritual breakthroughs we experience as lifelong yoga students. Aubrey completed a 200 Yoga Teacher Training with Diana Vitantonio and Soul Activist/Breathless Yoga.
When Aubrey isn't living yoga off the mat being taxi/cheerleader/chef/housekeeper/nurse to her 3 kids, or friend/partner/lover to her husband, and when she isn't drinking coffee/wine with her friends, cooking or eating a great meal or even doing her favorite hobby, reading, she'll gratefully be on her mat, being reminded that she is enough.
Rebecca will tell you she discovered yoga quite by accident when her insatiable need for new experiences landed her in a 5:30am class in the new studio in town but, as she believes in the larger order in theseemingly random chaos of the universe, figured she was in all actuality placed there purposely. In one hour every perception she had about yoga was tossed out the same window that had newly opened to her body, mind, and spirit. And even though she suspected theUniverse was playing her like a fiddle, she happily and heartily agreed to follow the tune. It was that good.
She has been practicing for 5 short, but full, years and received her 200 hour RYT certification through Studio Rise in Ashland in 2017. Yoga has become her way of looking at life through a thing she does, connecting herself to herself and to her community in a way she didn’t know was missing, and her heart’s greatest desire is to see that connection flourish in others as they move on their mats.
Rebecca’s favorite thing to do is experience moments with her favorite people, mainly her steadfast husband, Michael, and their 2 inquisitive, energetic children. History and Humanities lessons and a sprinkling of the fantastic abound in their household and resonate through their vacations, frequent trips in the Nature, choice of reading materials and entertainment, and topics of conversation. You’ll most likely catch her talking or eating on camera and if you find her in a tree with a book you’ll know she’s Home.
Tell me about an "ah-ha" yoga moment.
The first time yoga made me cry and I realized how deeply movement was connected to our emotions. That our minds, fascia, muscles, nerves, hormones, feelings, desires, energies, synapses, thoughts, perceptions, organs, were all the same thing, they move as one...kind of the like the Holy Trinity...parts but all made of the same thing and responding at the same time. I remember feeling foolish that it had not occurred to me before (more than on a mental level) and then immediately laughing at myself for thinking I know so much. Then wondering what else I don't know yet. Followed directly by wanting to know more.
What is your favorite song to yoga to?
Don't ask that song question. Anybody who cares enough about music to care about that question would never answer it.
How about if I phrase the song question like this: if this song comes on, you can't help but move. Right now, what is that song?

Niki, a wife, mother of 3, and an Ashland native. She began practicing yoga in her living room with Shiva Rea in 2013 and she knew right away that yoga was going to be her thing. Not long after Studio Rise opened its doors she became a regular, and her practice and her love for yoga grew into something much more than she ever expected. Niki completed her 200 hour yoga teacher training at Studio Rise in April 2017 and loves sharing her passion for yoga with the Ashland community. When Niki is off the mat, you will find her at home spending time with her family and 4 cats.
If you had the power to heal one thing in the world, what would it be?
"Self doubt. It is so crippling."
What is your life's mantra?
"'I am...' Usually its just those 2 words, to remind myself that just being or holding space is enough, but also to remember that I can fill in the blank after those 2 words with anything."
In an attempt to live a more healthy lifestyle, Samantha started an online fitness program that included the yoga practice in 2016. She wanted to learn more about yoga and began to attend regular classes at a local studio. Due to struggling with difficult back to back pregnancies, a diagnosis of fibromyalgia, and multiple mental health issues, Samantha quickly began to notice the effects yoga had on her overall well being. Her love for the yoga practice continued to grow rapidly, and her loving sister-in-law encouraged her to continue to deepen her knowledge. In March 2017, Samantha began the 200 hour yoga teacher training program at Yoga on High in Columbus, Ohio.
Yoga on High allowed Samantha to explore the art of yoga as more than just a physical practice. She was challenged to think outside of the box and dove into a culture of diversity. She trained under Michele Vinbury & Marcia Miller, co-owners of the YoHi Studio. She began teaching a few months prior to graduating with her certificate in December 2017. Samantha teaches various types of yoga and always adapts her classes to each individual student.
Off of the mat, you can find Samantha staying home with her two beautiful girls and taking care of her sister's four children during the day. Yes, you read that right! 6 children! She does well with giving directions, which is a great trait to have as a yoga teacher! She lives in Lexington, Ohio and enjoys spreading the love of yoga to every group she encounters. Whether you're new to yoga or you've been practicing for years, Samantha encourages you to join her on the mat to share the love of this practice together!
I found my way onto my yoga mat after the birth of my second child. I had a regular massage therapist at the time that also offered me reiki. He mentioned to me that my mind and body were disconnected and I should try yoga. So I did! I hated almost every minute of my first yoga class. I was new to these sensations, the movement, the names of the asanas. But would I liked, what I really loved was how enlightened I felt, how I found my own breath, how lifted I felt, how I drank up every bit of intention. I know now that I was feeling the energy from those around me. But even more was I had found a form of personal healing. And I also loved Savasana!
I feel like I was divinely guided onto the path I am on today, from not only yoga teacher training, but also with Reiki. To be able to share parts of my journey to help my students along there way is why I teach yoga. I want my students to feel embodied and empowered in their own skin with who they are today, and give them the tools, the intentions to continue to reach their highest potential on and off the mat.
My journey started years ago when I realized how uncomfortable I was in my own skin. Meditation and yoga quickly became my weekly routine once I got started. I was determined to feel better, regardless of what the number on the scale told me. Studio Rise jump started me into self discovery! I had never made settling my mind a priority, or purposely tried to be alone with my thoughts. Many meditations and practices later, I feel such peace with my true self. Though I have lost 50 pounds+ over the years, it is such an enlightening feeling to feel true love for yourself. Mind, body, & soul! The greatest gift I have given myself is the freedom to choose love. The freedom to be and love my true self every day. To love and treat others the way I wish to be treated. To embrace the beauty in every person and everything. Not every day is rainbows and sunshine, but it’s now easier than ever to find my way back to peace. Yoga has always been my favorite form of physical activity. I love the mental challenge, the flexibility, and the full body stretch. The class that I teach provides the same benefits, which is why I enjoy it so much! Hope to see you soon. May you be safe, may you be healthy, may you be happy, and may you be at ease in your community. (Last line from my favorite meditation guru, Rolf Gates)
Mary started doing yoga about 3 years ago to help her relax from working night shift. Mary did a home practice for a year a half, before coming to Studio Rise. Some of Mary's favorite things are being in nature and by water. She spends time with her family, which includes her dogs. Mary completes her training at Sequioa Wellness Center and is also Reiki certified.
Tell about an "ah-ha" yoga moment: It was the first time I got crow pose for a split second and then I fell on my forehead! I'll keep trying to get crow pose again.
If you could heal one thing in the world, what would it be? Depression-too many people close to me suffer from it and I want to help them all
Yoga simply translates as "union." Yoga is a physical practice which unites mind, body, and soul. Through a series of "asanas" or physical postures, you'll strengthen stretch, and balance your phyiscal body. Through uniting movement and breath your mind will grow calm, peaceful, and you will achieve a greater sense of overall well-being
"Power" speaks to the high energy, sweaty, and athletic style of yoga practiced at Studio Rise. While you don't have to be an athlete to practice here, even in the basics classes, you'll have an element of cardio conditioning.
Vinyasa means "breath-syncronized movement." A large focus of a Vinyasa classes is to connect each movement to the breath--either inhaling or exhaling. And using the power of the breath to move you, your mind is allowed to relax and release stress so you won't feel like you are straining or exhausted at the end of class, as you would during a "traditional" workout.
When movement, asana, is connected to breath, or prana, the practice takes on a fluid and almost dance like quality. In other words, it flows.
