Rockin Yogis


This class is taught by:

Shirley Ho

Shirley’s yoga journey started 3 years ago when her friend / teacher encouraged her to try out a new yoga studio with friendly staff and, most importantly, childcare. She initially fell in love with the practice because the classes were fun, energetic and interesting. This faster paced, vinyasa flow was not the kind of yoga she had experienced previously. Then as Shirley practiced more, she began to realize all the other intrinsic benefits of yoga - the strength and flexibility of the mind and body during the practice, the calmness that manifests afterwards.

Shirley initially pursued teacher training as a means to learn more about yoga. After receiving her 200 hour yoga teacher training from Cheryl Oliver (Sanskrit scholar of Scottsdale, AZ and the Asana Dealers (Gina Marie Dunn and Nicolle Callahan, Dallas, TX), she is excited to share her practice and inspire others in their yoga journey.

Julie Cooper

Julie’s yoga journey began with a running injury. Looking to find the same endorphin release while healing her ankle she found bikram yoga and was instantly hooked to the structured postures, the heat, and the zen-like state after class. She realized that through doing yoga she was finally able to calm her mind and that benefit extended to her home life. Later on during pregnancy, looking for a lighter routine, she found Vinyasa yoga and enjoyed the fluidity of linking breath to movement. Post-pregnancy she was looking for a better combination of the heat of bikram, but the constant movement of a true Vinyasa Flow. Taking her first Rockin’ class with Gina Dunn, she finally found a good balance of both as Gina helped her realize how amazing yoga is for the mind, body, and spirit. It was at We Yogis that she fell in love with the practice and realized how much more yoga is than just a workout. Inspired by her teachers and wanting to “pay it forward” she signed up for Asana Dealers Teacher Training in 2015. Under the amazing guidance of Gina Dunn, Nicolle Callahan, and Cheryl Oliver she realized her calling to be a teacher. In her classes she aims to get you sweating, refine your movements, and help you realize the benefits of yoga on and off the mat. Meet her there!

Jessica East

As an avid yogi for over a decade, Jessica knew that becoming a teacher would be a natural progression in her practice. She received her 200-hour teacher training in 2009 and has been empowering others to find a sense of strength and balance through yoga ever since. Today she teaches an energetic vinyasa flow that is both invigorating and approachable. Through the breath, asana and music, she creates a fun space to play and find liberation from fear and resistance. She travels the world to learn from other yogis, and is continuously inspired by the incredible folks she meets along the way. Off the mat, Jessica works for a beauty company and promotes nutrition and wellness as a health coach.

Nicolle Callahan

Nicolle’s passion for wellness dates back over 10 years when she began her career as a personal trainer. After moving from Canada to Dallas, Nicolle stumbled upon yoga while hunting for lululemon athletica clothing. (As life would have it, she is now an Ambassador for lululemon and shares their vision to elevate community and inspire others.) Her first yoga experience was at YogaPower with the infamous Stephanie Young and that class forever changed her life. She vowed that day “to figure this thing called yoga out.” Surprised at the challenge that yoga had to offer and drawn the new ability to focus her mind, she continues to teach from that place of self discovery and empowerment. Her classes could be described as an upbeat rigorous vinyasa flow that focuses on alignment, brings awareness to the breath and leaves you feeling invigorated and inspired.
Nicolle is Baron Baptiste Trained as an Associate Teacher where she holds a 200hr level two certification and working toward Level 3 in the near future.

Blair Isom

Blair began her yoga journey over ten years ago in Dallas. She then moved to Lubbock and was introduced to the practice of Iyengar, this is where she feels she truly learned the foundation of the poses. Five years after moving to Lubbock, a Baptiste studio opened and she was able practice other techniques. When she finally moved back to Dallas, she was reconnected with her passion for Vinyasa flow at We Yogis. Blair completed her yoga training under the guidance of Cheryl Oliver, Gina Dunn, and Nicolle Callahan in 2016. Her upbeat music will help empower you through her fun, challenging classes!

Paige Carlson

Paige is new to teaching but not new to yoga. She has been practicing for 16 years and has been privileged to practice with some of the most creative and passionate yogis in Dallas. Many of the elements that Paige incorporates into her classes are based upon her rich practice and training by Nicolle Callahan, Gina Dunn and Sanskrit scholar, Cheryl Oliver as a part of the 2015-16 YTT group at We Yogis. Paige began practicing at We in 2014 primarily because of her high regard for so many great teachers and yogis that practice and teach there. Her classes combine upbeat music with fun and unique sequencing, movement of breath and a focus on core awareness. Outside the studio she is a wife and mom of five kids.

Britt Rainwater

When you walk into one of Britt’s classes you can expect creative and intelligent sequencing, progressive upbeat music, plenty of time going upside down, a solid dose of playfulness and an overall great vibe... Britt connects naturally with her students giving them the personal attention they need to deepen their practice. Her positive energy, sense of humor and uplifting personality is contagious. Each class is handcrafted with love & paired with a compelling centering theme to leave students feeling inspired and more alive at the very core of their being.
Britt is an E-200 Hr. RYT certified in classical Hatha Yoga, her classes are a challenging mix of Power Vinyasa Yoga, integrating dynamic sequencing, core work, breathing, inversions and arm balances into an overall alignment-based flow suitable to students of all levels.

Ashley Farzad

 Ashley, no stranger to the fitness world in any capacity, has worked to help others reach their optimal level of health for over 12 years.She started personal training long before she found yoga, saying she learned strong body mechanics through Olympic lifting with barbells and kettlebells.
When relocating from Indianapolis to Texas in 2012 she found Power Yoga and says “it all seemed to come to together.” She strongly believes you must move the body to get to something deeper within yourself and that involves challenging yourself to grow, feel, and be dedicated to something. For her the answer is yoga. Whether its 3x a week or daily, with dedication she believes practice can become a reliable constant offering her students strength and peace at the same time.
With her knowledge of how the body works, mindful mechanics, a steady sweaty flow, you’ll feel like you’re dancing every time you step on your mat.
Ashley is an E-RYT yoga instructor (holding over 2K hours of teaching experience) with a 200 HR Baptiste Certification plus continuing education courses on many topics. She says her favorite thing about yoga is its evolution year by year and how fun it is to get the opportunity to be a beginner over and over again.
You’ll also catch Ashley managing the We Yogis Uptown location.
