Kylee Nolan

Kylee has always had a passion for health and wellness. She loves taking care of her body through nutrition and mindful movements. A few years ago when she lived in Massachusetts, she was introduced to yoga by a friend. She started practicing regularly and loved the challenge yoga brought to her. She began experiencing the benefits of yoga by learning to listen to her mind, body, and spirit.

Kylee decided she wanted to help others deepen and learn from this practice, that’s when she received her 200 hour yoga teacher training from Health Yoga Life in Boston, Massachusetts back in 2018. “One out of many reasons I love yoga is because there are so many different styles, you can choose whatever style suits you. Unless you can’t choose because you love them all!” Since then she has continued to learn and teach different styles of yoga. Such as power yoga, restorative, and aerial. Her favorite thing about teaching is that she gets to guide and hold a safe place for others to discover their own yoga journey.

Victoria Roman

Yoga Instructor

Growing up in California and spending her summers in Florida, Victoria found a deep love and understanding for nature and the constant changes of life itself.

Practicing yoga for over 5 years and striving to live by a yogic path, Victoria found herself through this ancient practice of healing and meditation, and ever since has watched her mindset and wellbeing transform as she gained a new perspective on how she chooses to interpret and live her life. She has always had a passion to share it with others, and after moving to FL in 2018 she was determined to take that next step and received her 200 hour certification from Wendy Fit in early 2022. Victoria believes that yoga is much more than just a physical exercise, and her goal is to spread awareness of the origins of yoga as well as the many other physical, mental, and spiritual aspects that yoga has to offer. Since beginning her teaching journey, Victoria has found that the styles she loves to teach the most range from Vinyasa and Hatha yoga to slow restorative and gentle yoga, as she feels “sometimes, less is more”, and often we find there is more space for healing when the body and mind learn to slow down and dive deeper into the connection we all share.

We never stop learning in life, and Victoria is committed to continuously expanding her knowledge of yoga and deepening her practices and abilities to teach it to others so that they might benefit in their own way and discover the light on their own path.

Jennifer Guest

Jennifer was born in Tarpon Springs and, after relocating to Texas for twelve years, moved back to Florida in 2016 to enjoy the beaches and springs and to be close to her family.

Jennifer began working as a fitness instructor in 2007, teaching a variety of cardio and strength-based exercise formats. In 2010, she was introduced to Pilates and immediately recognized it as a radically different form of exercise from anything she had tried previously. She achieved many physical benefits from her Pilates practice very quickly, including increased strength, flexibility, body-awareness and control, and a leaner physique.

“My favorite thing about the Pilates method, besides the physical and mental discipline it instills, is that it is something I can practice for the rest of my life. No matter a person’s age or physical abilities—Pilates is for every body!”

In 2011, Jennifer earned her first Pilates certification and has since earned a comprehensive certification in Pilates Reformer, Cadillac, Chair, and Barrels through STOTT Pilates.

Jennifer loves to share the benefits of Pilates with others. Her goal as an instructor is to constantly learn, grow, and evolve so that her clients may do the same.
