Rockin Yogis


This class is taught by:

Nicole Preston

Nicole was first introduced to yoga in early 2000. At the time, she was a competitive tennis player and an avid runner. She was surprised at how amazing she felt after her first class. Not only was she much calmer, but she also left exhausted, as if she had literally worked every muscle in her body. From that moment forward, Nicole was hooked on yoga, and she began a very regular practice. Nicole completed a 200 hour vinyasa teacher training at At One Studios in Scottsdale, AZ.in 2005. She also recently finished an advance teacher training with Corepower in California. Her teaching is influenced by her mentor, Julie Boyd. Nicole lived in California for a year where she studied with many teachers including Krista and Brock Cahill, who helped take her teaching and practice to a new level. Nicole’s challenging vinyasa class combines music, strength, flexibility and the power of breath. Her class allows students to transform their practice into a meditative flow. She truly believes that anything is possible through yoga, and that if you allow it to happen, it will not only transform your body, but also your mind.

Rachael Fallon

I discovered yoga in 2010 while looking for creative ways to stay fit at a local gym. I was intrigued and enjoyed the classes, but my life took off in a different direction and I stepped away from it for awhile. When I came back to it in 2013, I immediately felt an overwhelming sense of community. I felt like I was home. The openness and availability I experienced was inspiring. I decided that I needed more and I wanted to share my love of the practice with others.
In July 2016, I received my RYT-200 from We Yogis. During my training, I gained the knowledge and confidence to open my mind, body, and spirit farther than I ever thought possible. I gained incredible mentors and friends that challenged and inspired me to be a strong practitioner. The drive to share my passion with others was undeniable.
In my classes, I strive to provide an atmosphere where everyone, no matter their abilities or level of experience, can feel welcomed. I strive to create the sense of community that I first felt when I started practicing yoga several years ago. I believe that through breath and body/mind communication, we can create unity. My hope is that everyone can walk away feeling relieved and refreshed, ready to be inspired by the world and the potential that lies within us all.

Merritt Russ

Merritt is a CYT-200, having completed her Vinyasa training under Nicolle Callahan, Susie Caicedo & Cheryl Oliver; her talented teachers being rooted in the Ashtanga method mean Merritt's training came with authenticity and tradition. Merritt's goals for her students are to build a lifelong practice through understanding fundamentals, using proper, safe alignment and ensure each practitioner feels accomplished and balanced after each experience, learning something new each class. Merritt's love of travel and discovering new things mean that the music will always be new and exciting, and tidbits of knowledge from attending classes around the world will be weaved into sequences. Merritt lives in Dallas with her husband, two children, and two fur babies, with whom she likes to practice her sequences before teaching.

Sabra Hanson

I have been a competitive athlete since a very early age, loving the endorphin rush and the thrill of competition. I completed the Iron Man in Lake Placid in 1999, the Galveston Half Iron Man in 2012 and the Iron Man in Louisville, Kentucky also in 2012 and was a competitive swimmer in Canada. After enduring many unresolved injuries throughout my body I turned to yoga. Through yoga I found a new edge and understanding, free from injuries. Peace with strength, flexibility and endurance were what then evolved for me. I tell follow athletes and students to listen to their own bodies and that they hold the master key to their possibilities. Various teachers have influenced me in the practice of yoga including Baron Baptiste and Dave and Cheryl Oliver. Still learning I hope to continue to help others to realize their potential.

Maggie Niemiec

After attending her first power vinyasa flow class, Maggie was hooked on yoga's invigorating energy and felt compelled to share this with others through her teaching. Within less than a year from her first yoga class she received her 200 hour teacher certification under Susie Caicedo with Organic Soul. Maggie teaches challenging and empowering classes set to upbeat music with creative flows and fun transitions. These rigorous classes focus on postural alignment and proper breath control while building strength and flexibility. She encourages students to find their edge as they breathe, move and most importantly, have fun!
When not on her mat, you can find Maggie fitting in her cardio by chasing her two young children.

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.

Ashlie McGill

Ashlie literally (almost) ran into yoga watching Jessica Young demo at a Luke’s Locker event in 2002. Mesmerized by the light of the demonstration, she attended Jessica’s class the very next day. From that savasana, life just became brighter. Ashlie started teaching in 2006 and leads a powerful, fun, nurturing class.
Ashlie studies with Baron Baptiste and is a Baptiste Yoga Certified Teacher. She loves Baptiste Power Yoga because of the awakenings the sequence inspires within, over and over again. In 2014, Ashlie completed the We Teacher Training with Julie Boyd and Cheryl Oliver (Ashtanga-based Vinyasa). Teaching at We is such a joy for Ashlie. She is grateful for a space that celebrates yoga for all ages and paces. Ashlie lives in east Dallas with her husband and two kids, who are yogis by nature.

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!

Kalene McGraner

Kalene's teaches an exhilarating vinyasa flow full of opportunities to strengthen the body, neutralize the mind and enliven the spirit. She came to yoga after walking past a studio while living in St. Louis where the students were exiting with a serenity and sweat unlike anything she had seen in a gym. After 1 class she was hooked. She was drawn to the non-judgmental environment, the community of yogis and that each time she stepped onto her mat she retreated to a mystical place free from worry and stress that only yoga could take her. Her physical and mental health improved, anxiety dissipated and her overall attitude toward life shifted. Yoga is truly her medicine; making her a better wife, mother and friend. After the practice unfolded what pranayama and vinyasa could do for her mind, body and spirit she felt called to retreat from the fast-paced corporate world and gain her certification so she could share the serenity and harmony the practice has brought to her. Kalene earned her 200-hour Vinyasa Flow certification in November 2014, and is always a student first.

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.

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.

Sally Dire

In 2010 I cautiously took my first yoga class with Joseph Stingley, after continually seeing 120 eager and dedicated students wrapped around the block each Saturday morning, waiting to get into the gym's studio. After years and years of intense physical activity, as well as years of addictive and unfulfilling behaviors, I wanted to connect to something deeper. I was instantly moved by this dance like moving meditation. He told me I would soon be teaching.

What kept me coming back to class? Learning to practice, not perform. Learning to know when to step back, and when to trust myself and push past fear, how to be in the moment without reacting- these are gifts I continually receive from practicing yoga- and gifts I authentically strive to share through teaching. In 2011-2012 I completed my 200hr certification through the guidance of Joseph Stingley. I enjoy teaching a powerful vinyasa flow, focused on alignment and breath control that pushes boundaries yet leaves you feeling balanced, energized and uplifted.

Maggie Ruschhaupt

When it comes to yoga, and exercise overall, Maggie is passionate about the connection between our minds and our bodies. She fell in love with yoga while working at a job that required a lot of sitting. She realized how crucial movement was not just to her physical health, but also to her mental well being. During stressful times at work, she noticed the only time she wasn't thinking about her job was the time she was on her mat, and when she left the studio, she felt more focused, more centered, more herself. She brings that idea to her classes - yoga is a time to breathe, to take a break from your phone and your emails, and to give back to you. Maggie completed her 200-hour certification in 2015 and now teaches full-time. She knows, however, that it isn't always easy to get to your mat, even 60 minutes feels like a lot some days - so she works to make her classes fun, challenging, and rewarding, hoping that her students leave feeling a little better, a little lighter, than when they arrived.

John-Paul Henry

JP was a long distance runner who attended his first yoga class at We Yogis after the studio opened in 2012. He discovered yoga after developing foot pain problems from, and he feel in love with the solace that came from the mind body connection, and the physical challenges that came from the practice. He is a native of Colorado, and completed his Power Vinyasa training through South Hills Power Yoga in Pittsiburgh in 2016.
