This influence and compassionate approach is woven into the type of classes taught here at the studio.
Aimee Frost, RYT- 200 hours
A deeply rooted desire to hold a quiet and introspective space for herself and others was the beginning of Aimee’s path into the world of Yoga.

Aimee holds a compassion-centered presence, colored with encouragement and a crazy sort of love for all fellow humans! Her classes come with a relaxed yet playful vibe.
Aimee received her 200hr RYT training from Unbound Collective in San Antonio, TX and feels incredibly grateful to have begun a mentorship studying under Dr. Sarah Eads to deepen and expand her knowledge.
