Morgan Hincks

Morgan found yoga in college, 20 years ago. The Ashtanga series held her asana practice through her 20’s until an injury and birthing two children redirected her attention inward.  Morgan fell back in love with practice; using asana and mindfulness practices to manage physical and emotional pain. She is inspired by the teachings of Ram Dass, Eckhart Tolle, Byron Katie, Angela Farmer, Michael Johnson, Shayla Worsley, Sierra Hollister and Joe Taft. She is a 200 hr RYT with Yoga Alliance as well as a professional observer of nature beings and mother of two human and one canine wildling. Morgan creates space for students to journey deeper into awareness of their bodies, minds and hearts. She facilitates classes that explore the eight limbs of yoga, subtle energy anatomy and our place in the natural world. Her passion for plants and herbalism often permeate her classes and you will leave feeling at peace as well as connected to yourself and the world around you. 

Krystal McLeod

I come from a direct bloodline of powerful, spiritual women - many of whose knowledge, essence, and gifts help to support me in my work and ascension journey today. The concept that the power to heal ourselves is a Divine Birthright ever-present and available to anyone who desires to access it - is one that I have come to embrace. Spirituality, Service, Justice, and Freedom of Expression have been pervasive themes in my life. Nonetheless, I spent most of my life in academia, ultimately leading to law school - obtaining my Juris Doctorate in May 2021. It was during my time in law school that I experienced the height of my spiritual awakening. The call to fully walk in my purpose and serve this generation in a way that utilizes all of my gifts, as well as the knowledge and healing I’ve gained on our path - is one I could no longer ignore. I bring the culmination of these gifts into my yoga practice. I hope to journey with my students back home to self.
