Nicole Lunt (Founder)

The day I stepped on the Yoga Mat in 1985 at the University of Utah, I knew this was my destiny – I have been practicing Yoga for 35 years in all its forms. In 2016 I felt the calling to become a certified teacher, and I received my 200 RYT with Yoga Assets. I have been teaching Yoga for 6 years. During my training, I fell in love with the chakras & the beautiful, vital prana life force energy inside all of us – which led me to another passion ~ my Angel Reiki Energy Healing sessions – that I have been doing for 5 years. I am a Certified Holy Fire II Reiki Karuna Master & Usui Reiki Method Master – I also have received my Quantum-Touch Level 1 Healing Certification & Sound Healing Level 1 & 2. After discovering the healing benefits of essential oils, I became certified in Doterra’s Aromatouch Massage.

Ayesha Haskell

I am a 500+ ERYT, YT Lead Trainer, Embodiment Coach, Possibility Practitioner, Earth Steward, Sacred Ritualist, outdoor adventurer & playful student of life! My journey has been a quest to know what existed beyond the conditioning that I was born into & a deep yearning to disrupt old, outdated, oppressive systems to create space for greater heart centered living. For the past 11 years I have studied International Studies, Social Justice, Permaculture, Women's Health & Womb Wisdom, Herbalism, Neurosculpting, Quantum Theory, Trauma Informed Practices, Somatics & Sacred Ceremony. I received my 200 HR YTT through Akhanda Shakti Yoga in Costa Rica & my 300 HR YTT through Akhanda Yoga in Rishikesh, India in 2017. I am currently in school to become a Clinical Somatic  Educator & Therapist.

 

Through my experiences I have grown a deep passion for supporting individuals to remember their wild, sacred connection to the Earth, reclaim the wisdom of their bodies, strengthen their confidence & live a life of their biggest, wildest dreams! I believe that is it through a mergence of science & sacred that we holistically expand our capacity to transform ourselves from the inside out. I believe that personal freedom is available through embodying the full spectrum of this human experience while simultaneously exploring the infinite realms of possibility, aligning our dreams, values & actions, and thus, positioning ourselves to be a source of greater impact in our collective.

And most of all, I believe in having fun as we learn to navigate this thing called life. Remembering to be silly, give ourselves permission to make mistakes, be ok with falling on our face with a knowing that each time we fall we get to pick ourselves back up stronger, wiser & with greater conviction of what matters most to us.

Traci Benson

Hi there, I’m Traci, and I teach Relax & Restore at Divine Yoga Studios. 
I am continually inspired by yoga’s transformative power—both internally and externally. I’m committed to bringing a sense of freedom to my classes that will help you explore yourself whole self, appreciate your body, and honor your mind and soul.
I believe that conscious living is an ongoing personal journey and hope to help you develop a supportive practice in a peaceful space. My practice helps me still my mind, attend to my own needs, and simply makes me smile :)

My Fave’s...


Being with my family and great friends is the best thing about life and what I cherish most. I love to laugh and tease because life should light you up! 
I’m a sucker for Diet Coke & pink sugar cookies, humanitarian trips, podcasts on a hike, the feeling of the sun on my skin, volleyball, movies & popcorn, words strung together in interesting ways, old photo’s, a crackling fire, and looking up at the sky through leaves. 

 

Let’s practice together and explore this one miraculous life we’ve been gifted!

Samantha Reich

I believe that yoga is for everyone. I seek to inspire, guide, and serve yogis of all ages and abilities to develop a healthier mind, body, and spirit. I work hard to consistently be prepared, expand my practice and knowledge, and focus my intention in my own practice. I am currently completing a second 200-hour yoga training at Divine Yoga after finishing my first 200-hour training in 2022 at Root to Rise Yoga. Through my life experiences, I have learned that there is so much potential in each person and I want to help others see and tap into their potential. I am fascinated by the benefits of yoga– so don’t be surprised if you hear me talk about how yoga can improve our sleep, help us heal, decrease our stress, or how yoga makes us stronger.

 

If I’m not practicing yoga, you can usually find me with my family (including four grandkids!) and planning our next adventure, whether vacationing or being in the mountains hiking, birding, or mountain biking!

Holly Ferguson

My love for yoga began ten years ago when I started to recognize my body trying to tell me something. I took many yoga classes before finally challenging myself to a 200-hour YTT course in 2018. To me, the beauty of yoga is what it is trying to teach. Rumi said, “I have been a seeker, and I still am, but I stopped asking the books and the stars. I started listening to the teaching of my Soul.” Learning to listen to my body is a lifelong journey that I am excited to share. I hope to help others find joy and knowledge through practiced engagement with their bodies.

 

I am grateful to be married to my husband, Cory, for almost 25 years! He has been very supportive and encouraging. We have three exceptional children who teach me so much about life and love. We enjoy spending time outdoors together, mostly hiking and gardening. We also enjoy the company of 1 dog, two goats, and 16 laying hens!

in the times she needed it most and joy and calm each time she steps on her
mat. Yoga has supported her through all of the ups and downs of life.

within ourselves and with the universe. It allows mind, body, spirit, other beings,
the natural world, and our higher powers to meet as one. Yoga provides a
chance to check in with yourself, to communicate with your body, to find calm
through breath and mindfulness, to cultivate gratitude, and to leave class feeling
present, centered, and balanced.
Heidi strongly believes that experiences and knowledge gained on the mat
translate beautifully to the rest of life- yoga isn’t just an hour on a mat, it’s a way
of life.

I love going and I love doing. I have always been very active in sports and in life but I found yoga at a time in my life when I needed it the most. They say that everyone who finds yoga is healing something. I guess that’s how I got here too. It is my reminder to find balance, stay grounded, and be still. I love how it can bring us back home and to the present moment. I love the energy in yoga and the mind body connection. And now I have learned how much I love the connection I feel with others through this practice. I never imagined I would be teaching yoga but now here I am teaching yoga, come join me!

After practicing yoga for many years, I finally followed my dreams, and to become a certified yoga instructor and help others in such a way that yoga has helped me. 

My teaching style is rooted in Vinyasa flow, linking breath with movement, emphasizing the importance of alignment, breath awareness and mindfulness in my classes. My goal is to help students of all levels explore their practice, feel more connected to your body and cultivate inner peace.

Jana Dodenbier

Jana started her yoga practice 23 years ago, while living in Boston as a nanny.  Having grown up as a gymnast, handstanding, flipping and arm balancing her way through most of her childhood, yoga felt pretty natural to her from the beginning.  She spent her time trying a variety of styles over the next several years, eventually finding her passion in Power Yoga.  Wanting to share that passion and love for yoga with others, she chose to get certified through YogaFit 13 years ago and has been teaching ever since.  Finding deep satisfaction in helping others realize their own potential and reaching their goals throughout their own individual yoga journey.  

 

Her connection with her students is something she places a lot of value in.  She connects with them on a personal level and celebrates their successes both on and off the mat.  To her, life is all about connecting with others and yoga has been an incredible space to provide several opportunities for that.  Her practice is led with a focus on strength, flexibility, movement and self awareness through both the mind and body.  She provides a physical workout that students of all levels can enjoy. 

 

Aside from yoga, she is a bit of an adrenaline junkie and often seeks out new and exciting adventures but her favorites are wakeboarding, surfing, snow skiing, hiking, traveling, spending time with her family and raising 4 pretty incredible humans!
