Jenay is truly an artist in the field of Yoga. As an Empathic and Somatic Healer she skillfully applies her knowledge of body and mind to every practice. She believes that we all must understand ourselves before we can discover our individual Self (Atma). Through personal experience and continued study she has learned to teach Yoga in a way that combines physical therapy, counseling techniques and development of mindfulness. Physical practice helped her to open the door to inner understanding. Svadhyaya; self study that has been the true light upon her path. Through the study of books and ancient texts, deep concentration, and recognition of the mirrors provided by those with whom she practices and engages, she has come to see the light that shines upon her path.
Her Yoga teaching career began in 2005. Her training includes influences from B.K.S. Iyengar, Pattabhi Jois, Rod Stryker, Amy Pearce-Hayden, Gabriel Halpern and Elena Brower. She specializes in guiding in-studio practices directed with somatic and intuitive sequencing that challenges practitioners to focus on the present moment. During individualized private sessions she draws attention to that which lies beneath the physical. Having taught from coast to coast and internationally as well as for participants of all ages from infant to 90+, Jenay is able to vary the practice to serve the needs of any practitioner. She is talented in expressing instruction and philosophy in a way that makes the teaching accessible and easy to understand.
Her experiences include teaching children, school teachers, adults, seniors and children with disabilities and/or recovering from trauma. She draws upon her training in psychology & counseling in order to connect with practitioners and offer a practice that encourages openness and change. Her empathetic abilities guide her in understanding and connecting with all those whom she shares the practice.
Jenay has also taught Yoga in some unique locations including the Moonlight Bunny Ranch and on stage at Harvey's Outdoor Theater. She has also taught Yoga to the UNR Football team. Go Wolf Pack! Jenay has shared the practice with groups from Google, Nike, Adidas, and more. She is also honored to have instructed Paddle Yoga on the show Total Divas. In partnership with Krama Yoga Cambodia and Journeys Within Our Community Jenay shared her passion for the practice with groups of adults and children in the developing world.

Hannah Ouellette completed the 200 hour Raja Hatha Yoga Teacher training at Lake Tahoe Yoga in 2017. She enjoys teaching a variety of styles ranging from fast paced vinyasa to gentle, alignment-based asana.
Hannah began practicing yoga through a personal desire for more mindful movement in her life and fell in love with the teachings, sounds, and breath work. Hannah's personal practice is a mix of Astanga, alignment-based, and Yin. Hannah enjoys using tools to make the postures more acessible to not only her practitioners, but also for herself.
She believes that all bodies are yoga bodies and all asana are attainable for everyone.
