Christie Gascoigne

The greatest job I’ve ever had was teaching middle and high school students a little bit of History and English. But it did not take me long to realize that my role in this world was to provide building blocks to teenagers to live a healthy and happy life. I’ve been graciously given the opportunity to leave the general education classroom and move teens in a different way. After all, who doesn’t need some vinyasa? I’m so grateful for the Baron Baptiste sequence, which has allowed me to realize that the world is bigger than what’s going on in my head. I’ve met beautiful people along the way who have helped me evolve and continue to support me on and off my mat. When I’m off my mat, I like to snowboard, ride my cruiser around town, share red wine, and laugh…a lot! This really is a beautiful journey, and we’re all in it together.

Kristina Sevel

Kristina discovered her love for yoga in 2008 when a friend pulled her into her first class at Harmony Studios. Her practice deepened when a stubborn injury finally began to heal and as her practice became more focused she discovered the balance that yoga was bringing to all aspects of her life. She completed the Jivasara 200-hour certification program in the spring of 2011 with Marni Task. Kristina teaches a fun, upbeat Vinyasa Flow while creating a union between breath, movement and strength. Her classes encourage playfulness, enthusiasm and developing your own unique practice at every level. Kristina learns more each day from the wonderful mentors and students surrounding her.

Jenifer Ezell

Jenifer was given the gift of yoga in 2011. She was searching for a way to deal with chronic pain, stress and anxiety. After coming to Harmony Studios, she quickly found the solution to the battle she had been fighting tirelessly for years. As her practice evolved she knew she wanted to help others the way her teachers had for her. In May of 2016, Jenifer traveled to Costa Rica to immerse herself in learning under the tutelage of international yogi Banyan Gallagher and received her 200-hour RYT from Warrior One.
 
"I want to create a welcoming environment where people feel free to explore the beautiful journey of yoga and self discovery in a caring, judgment free space."

Angie Vodopivec

I started my practice in 2010 at Harmony Studios looking for a low impact activity to compliment a healthier diet and lifestyle. Yoga was the answer. I quickly realized all the tremendous benefits of yoga as it fed my mind, body and spirit in ways I never imagined it could. I've been inspired by the teachings of Natalie Lorber at Harmony Studios all these years, and I completed my 200-hour Teacher Training through Cleveland Yoga under Tami Schneider, Lisa Davis and Sophia Chang in 2014.
 
Outside of yoga, I am a Sales Leader and Coach at Citizens Bank, a mom to my 16 year old son, Owen, and wife of 17 years to my husband and rock, Pete. I am passionate about sales, yoga, fashion and travel, as well as giving back to those in need. I believe that consistency and process are the keys to achieving any goal, on or off the mat, as my practice is proof of that! Yoga has given me strength, confidence, and balance beyond what I ever expected and I can't wait to share all the amazing benefits with you. Come flow with me!

Felicia Hilscher

Felicia fell in love with yoga in 2012 after she reached her breaking point battling pain from endometriosis. "I really started listening to my body during practices and was able to find a deep connection with my breath and movements. Now I listen to my pain, and instead of ignoring it and pushing it aside, I use it as my fire!" She loved classes that allowed her to create her own expressions and explore the practice further. This playful curiosity and respect for the practice itself brought her to Yoga Teacher Training under the instruction of Diana Vitantonio in Summer/Fall of 2016, in addition to guidance from a handful of yoga instructors in the Cleveland area (including many from Harmony Studios).
 
Felicia's classes are joyful, inspiring, and welcoming to all. She will guide you to finding your own breath and movements by using music and personal writings. In no time you will be calling your mat "home." See you there!
