Charlsey Etheridge is a 200-hour registered yoga teacher with experience teaching in Nashville for three years. “To me, yoga is about creating balance. It’s about cultivating strength, solidarity and flexibility, both internally and externally. It’s about accepting where we are at any given moment in time, meeting ourselves there and having the strength to move beyond.”




JamieJaime Beckler is a 200-hour registered yoga teacher.  Jaime has a background in occupational therapy and a passion for yoga.  “Although I love the physical practice of yoga, it is the way it quiets the mind and the inner work that brings me back to my mat.”




yoga_marciaMarcia Evans is a 200-hour registered yoga teacher and is currently continuing her education toward her RYT 500. Marcia fills in for Cindy and contributes to special yoga events and workshops.  Marcia believes that yoga has trained her mind to see the bigger picture. “I learned mindfulness. I learned to observe my thoughts, feelings and myself from a distance, without judging myself or them to be good or bad. My focus in teaching is to help people become stronger and more flexible, but also to help them find peace in their busy lives and know that they are good enough just as they are.”





Meditation on Thursdays (1-2 p.m.) or Fridays (11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.) with Linda Norman is offered free. Linda is a retired psychiatrist and graciously gives her time to share her appreciation for the practice of meditation with others.
