ALEXIS TRESSLER, ERYT- 200, YACEP
Alexis came to yoga as a passionate marathon runner and now splits her time between running and yoga. Both moving meditations give her the opportunity to flex the mind and body muscles. Alexis also loves hiking, traveling, and will take any chance she can get to soak up the sun and a good book.
With her yoga roots in power yoga, Alexis has also trained with David Kyle and Steve Pyka in the rocket vinyasa system (created by Larry Schultz). She’s done additional training in yin, yoga sculpt, and taken courses in Thai massage. Alexis has over 5 years and 2500 hours of yoga instruction.
Alexis is a mysore ashtanga practitioner, who also loves the creative freedom and less strict “rules” of both the rocket and power practices. She encourages her students to invite that same playfulness in their own daily yoga practice. Alexis strives to create a practice space where students can come and practice as they are. You can expect an adaptable and energetic flow, precise cueing, and helpful hands-on assists.
A teacher, but more importantly a student - constantly inspired to learn and grow.

Haley Fulford, RYT- 200
Longtime athlete and adventurer, health enthusiast, and most recently a recovering employee from Capitol Hill, Haley has re-focused her attention to yoga, good food, and empowering others to live and maintain a healthy lifestyle. An active lifestyle has always been a part of her health journey and through the years she’s recognized the importance that healthy eating, regular exercise, and a strong mind+body connection has on her overall well-being. After years of only feeling satisfied physically through strenuous rock climbing, competitive tennis, and long distance running, she was introduced to yoga. She fell in love with yoga when she discovered she could stretch and strengthen in one class, all while breaking a good sweat.
After completing her 200hr Power Flow Yoga Teacher Training at 405 YOGA, Haley spent the past years diving into teaching head first, completed her 50 hr Rocket training with Steve Pyka in the Spring of 2017.
Through this practice, she believes in empowering individuals to become stronger and more confident versions of themselves by cultivating a mind + body connection, engaging in powerful movement, and developing strength from the inside out. She brings her fun and vibrant personality into her classes, encouraging students to have a positive attitude on and off the mat. Laughter, sweat and a bumpin’ playlist are signatures of Haley’s classes.
