Katy Knowles Co-Founder of yogahOMe, Katy has practiced and studied Yoga with teachers throughout the U.S. Currently, Katy is obtaining her Para Yoga Master Training with Yogiraj Rod Stryker. Her classes range from Gentle Yoga to Power Yoga, from Meditation to fusion with sounds. Katy says: “It is as much a pleasure to teach someone their first sun salutation as it is to teach a power vinyasa class.” Her purpose (dharma) is to share and spread the yogic teachings.
Sheila Pinto Co-founder of yogahOMe, Sheila Pinto enjoys teaching the practice as much as she enjoys practicing the practice. Sheila conducted her teacher training with Beryl Bender Birch and Baron Baptiste, and looks continues her studies with Rod Stryker and Lilias Folan. Sheila feels honored to be able to bring yoga to the Cincinnati community and hopefully spread the joys and ah-ha moments to her students that she has experienced in her own practice.
Lilias Folan The “First Lady of Yoga”, Lilias is regarded as America’s most knowledgeable and respected Yoga guru. Through her TV shows, books, videos, and workshops, Swami Lilias-Kavitananda (“she who finds enlightenment through poetry and movement”) has spent over three decades teaching the benefits of Yoga.
