Addie Piazza

Hello! I’m Addie and I am certified a 500hr yt. My yogic background is in Hatha. I enjoy teaching vinyasa and recently fell in love with teaching yin/restorative. My intention as a teacher is to guide students to connect deeper with themselves and become present in their bodies. I believe in the power of yoga. Yoga has radically changed my life and I believe it has the power to change anyone who practices
Consistently for the better! “Our issues lie in our tissues,” let’s get up close and personal with them and release what no longer serves, one breath at a time!

Ashley Johnson

Hi I’m Ashley! I’m a Pittsburgh native turned St Pete local with a passion for empowering others. I have been practicing yoga for over 10 years and in 2018, I felt called to expand my practice and go deeper within, as I was struggling privately through a deep wave of grief. My yoga training helped me heal in many ways and offered tools I didn’t know were inside of me. With overwhelming gratitude, it is a passion of mine and an honor to share this gift with others.

I teach private and group settings all around the Tampa Bay Area. When I’m not on my mat you can find me behind the chair in my salon suite. Whether I am empowering others through movement or assisting in enhancing outer beauty— it’s my mission to provide a safe space where everyone can show up exactly as they are.

Ashley teaches
An all levels class with creative vinyasa sequencing, incorporating postures from all the asana families. We’ll start out slow and create some heat as we build our flow. Expect focus on breath work, a mixture of balance, long holds, and strength.

Dani Furman

Hi my name is Dani! I’m a 23 year old Florida native. I’ve been practicing yoga for about a year and it’s changed my life so much, I spent my summer in Costa Rica getting my 200hr teaching certification.

Aside from doing yoga, I love spending time outside journaling and taking pictures. I look forward to moving with you!

Brian Johnson

Brian began practicing yoga in 2008 and thereafter leaned heavily into the physical benefits as a therapeutic to enhance mobility stemming from a car accident in 2013. After years of physical therapy and medical fitness, he evolved towards the benefits of yoga that compliment building lean muscle and mobility rather than bulk.

In 2022 Brian completed the Yoga Den 500-hour RYT training in Jacksonville, FL. The training provided the environment to catalyze a passion for movement, expand awareness of breath, and find stillness through meditation.

Yin & Nidra are his favorite styles to teach, but he can flow with the breath too when it’s time to warm things up.
