Meet the Team

Being Wild is about presence and process; it's a journey in which curiosity and persistence are our guides.

Our teachers embody these values in their teachings and in their daily lives. 

We are so pleased to welcome these teachers to walk with us into the Wild.

Katrina Fletcher

I believe that yoga can be transformative for your life. It can heal, bring peace, love, and joy. It can be a teacher when a lesson needs to be learned. It can give you guidance when you are lost, and most importantly it can teach you how to love and take care of yourself.  I love teaching vinyasa and restorative yoga. Yoga has given me peace and joy, and I hope to bring that to my students.  I hope to see you on your mats soon! 

 

Katrina is RYT-200 hour certified.  She hold a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Pepperdine University, and a Juris Doctor from UMass Law.

Kim Lesniak

When life starts to get overwhelming the one place I can feel safe to let everything go is on my mat. The physical practice starts to clear my mind and afterwards my whole self has reset. I have learned to leave my expectations and judgements at the door. The time on my mat is all I need to remind myself of who I am. 

 

I was trained in teaching a power vinyasa style of yoga, however my love for all types of classes is growing every day. My goal in any class is to allow the student to connect to themselves no matter what style I'm teaching. 

Kim is RYT-200 hour certified, and also certified in Kids' yoga. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Clinical Laboratory Science.

Julie Yimoyines

Yoga has shown me how to tap into my own strength and given me the courage to show up exactly as I am. Time spent on my mat allows me to find the sweet, sweet pause that reconnects me to myself. When we find this pause and listen, truly listen,  we can honor our truth and make the world a better place.

 

I am trained in power yoga, but believe that yoga is for every body and all are welcome to find their space in my classes. Having spent decades running competitively (and a few years coaching) I strive to teach athletes how to access this aspect of their strength to help them connect to their bodies and minds off the field. I encourage you to drop your judgments, listen to your body, and explore what is true for you in the present moment on your mat. 

Julie is certified in kids yoga and is currently working toward her 200 hour certification in power yoga.  She has been a high school chemistry teacher for 19 years. She holds a B. A. in chemistry and an M.Ed. in secondary education from Lehigh University.
