Cacee was born and raised in Virginia Beach, VA, most recently lived in Seattle, WA for 8 years, and has now relocated to Scottsdale! Her favorite posture is Birds of Paradise because “it challenges your focus and balance while strengthening and opening up your hips, which is my favorite! When you are at full expression it truly feels like you’re flying high and free!” Her most challenging posture is Fixed firm because she injured her meniscus in both knees from dance when she was younger. She still practices the posture every class and finds humility in finding your own variation, listening to and honoring your body. Her advice to students while they practice is “Always focus on your breath and honor the body you brought to practice today. Not every pose will be perfect every practice. Find where you are in the moment, be present, and focus on your inner peace, your breath.”
Born and raised in Erie, PA, Amy lived in Los Angeles for 14 years and has now lived in Scottsdale since 2017. A dancer since age 3, Amy has always had a passion for movement created from balancing strength and flexibility within the body. Amy discovered her love for yoga 5 years ago becoming a dedicated practitioner of vinyasa and Buti yoga. “Yoga is an opportunity to shake stuff up, let things go, re-connect,
and find your happy place”
In July of 2018, Amy completed her 200YTT here in Scottsdale, AZ. Amy hopes to inspire others to have fun, stay mindful of how they feel aligned during their practices, and possibly challenge a class with her favorite arm balance of the moment.
She earned her RYT200 in 2015 here in Phoenix, AZ. She has a B.A. in Elementary Education and has taught pre-school to 2nd grade in the public and private school systems in AZ since 1992.
She live and taught English in Japan after graduating from U of A in Tucson.
A few of her favorite things are traveling, art, culture, the beach, gardens, nature, animals, kids, clean living, health and well being and YOGA!
Originally from Southern California, Tami has been practicing yoga for the past 17 years, spending 7 of them with floo-id YOGA. “In 2011 I tried my first hot yoga class at floo-id YOGA and was hooked!”
The calmness Tami experiences, after each class, are what keeps her driven to continue her practice each day. In the fall of 2016, she decided to participate in the teacher training and immersion program at floo-id YOGA in order to increase her knowledge surrounding yoga.
Tami’s favorite yoga pose is Child’s Pose as it allows her to relax into the floor and breathe deeply. Because of the obstacles it presents with balance and tightness in her legs, Tami finds Revolved Hand to Big Toe pose to be the most challenging.
In 2017 Tami became certified in barre, thanks to her love for ballet, and is excited to “blend ballet inspired workout with yoga” during her classes. Along with her knowledge and experience in both yoga and ballet, Tami advises her students to move at their own pace and do what is best for their bodies, strongly believing in making each person’s practice his or her own.
