My yoga classes draw upon the diverse knowledge of my collective mentors, all of which were brought together by Marisa Weppner and Sage Yoga School here in the Boise valley. My classes are infused with the wisdoms received through the many seasons and cycles of life and offer meditation, pranayama, and a grounding asana practice. Whether teaching hatha, vinyasa, or gentle yoga, I aim to integrate awareness of what the body is experiencing in any giving moment. It is my heart’s desire that the experiences my students have in class will overflow into their everyday life.
- Favorite Quote:The true test of a champion is not whether or not he can triumph, but whether he can overcome obstacles.
- Other places you’ll find me:There are other places?!
- Proudest Moment: Most of my proudest moments are “Proud Mom” moments for knowing I did all I could to raise a strong-minded, beautiful, kind daughter and she exemplifies those things. Also was super proud of my mom for finishing her very first Spartan Race at the age of 63! For myself, though, I would have to say the first Spartan Beast finish was pretty overwhelming – 10hrs on the mountain with a torn hamstring and not at all in Beast-shape, but we finished, and that’s what matters! What a great day!
- Favorite Sport: I LOVE my Dallas Cowboy football!

- Other places you’ll find me: Spartan Race course, local races, with my kids, on the football field
- Proudest Moment: Kids are always first, but aside from those, my proudest moment has to be when I started believing in myself, and not letting what others said influence me. Our own happiness can only come from within, and once that realization hit, I’ve flourished in so many different ways, and I know that others can as well. I’m also constantly stepping outside of my comfort zone by being in front of groups of people with all eyes on me, I hate being the center of attention!

- Proudest Moment:Up until I was twelve years old I had been a gymnast, but that era ended with a full spinal fusion. Luckily at twelve, I was able to recover quickly and find other sports to compete in to stay active. Losing my flexibility in my spine was hard for me—I had always been very involved in sports that relied on it. In my freshmen year of college I participated in my first Iyengar yoga class and after a lot of hard word, determination, and courage I performed my first backbend in 8 years. Still thankful to Vickie at Boise Yoga for her guidance to keep my muscles safe! 🙂
- Favorite Sport: To succeed at: Skiing; To constantly kind of suck at, but never stop trying: White Water Kayaking
- Certs:Currently an Intern studying for my Personal Training Certification
I coach Happy Hour, Boot Camp and Stretch classes at Camp Rhino Boise. My goal as a coach is to help people find mental strength and confidence through physical outlets.

PiYo & Insanity Coach
The Most Humorous Introvert You’ll Ever Meet
- Favorite Movie: The Holiday
- Favorite Quote: Women have many faults while men only have two; everything they say, and everything they do. (I don’t actually believe that but it’s just too darn funny to not put out there!)
- Other places you’ll find me:Underwater basket-weaving with Coach Brian
- Proudest Moment:When I stepped on the scale to read 100 lbs lost! My mother, brother, sister, brother in law and college best friend all underwent gastric bypass to lose weight. We had all struggled with our weight, with what seemed like no alternative other than surgery. But I did it on my own. I dug deep and put in the work. No greater feeling than to know you have something inside you to accomplish things you didn’t think were possible. Getting Insanity LIVE certified was a pretty close second.
- Favorite Sport: Volley Ball
- Certs:CPR, Insanity Live, PiYo Live
I am a group exercise instructor in the Insanity Live and PiYo Live formats. I try to get you to forget you’re working out; take the chore out of exercise; eliminate the nagging depressed feeling of “having” to and make it a fun experience. I want you to feel more confident and amazing every time you leave. I want you to move better, breathe better, enjoy life and experience more by giving you a kick a$$, solid workout you can’t get on your own!

I overheard my coach saying it was probably the greatest goal he had ever witnessed.

- Favorite Quote: Be a Fruit Loop in a world full of Cherrios.
- Other places you’ll find me: Target eating popcorn and Hobby Lobby.
- Proudest Moment: My kids births are def my proudest moments but besides them I have to absolutely say my proudest moment was when I stopped telling myself “I can’t do that or can’t do this” and completed my first Trifecta in “2017”. Believing in myself and taking chances was the hardest thing I have ever done because I have always doubted myself. But Camp Rhino changed that perspective and now I KNOW I can do ANYTHING I put my mind to.
- Favorite Sport: Baseball
I am the Child Care attendant to our evening Bitty Rhinos!! I am a mother of 2 young ones so I know the importance of parents being able to escape for some “Me” time to clear their minds & take care of themselves. By parents dropping off their kids to me they are not only getting that 1-2 hours of “Me” time that’s well-needed but they are also getting the satisfaction of knowing that their kids are in good hands, no matter if they are being dropped off in a happy mood or a screaming match! I love & adore each and every little Rhino I come in contact with.
