Erin Kuehl

Erin Kuehl

Owner, Teacher/E-RYT200

Having always been focused on living a healthy life, Erin’s determination to find alternatives to healing after battling illness led her to yoga. After her first yoga class, the seed of opening her own studio was planted.

Under the expertise of Mary Clare Sweet and Carole Westerman at the esteemed Lotus House of Yoga in Omaha, Erin was able to evolve her yoga practice from a merely physical experience to a deeply transformative personal awakening. Uninhibited by obstacles and led by Spirit, that seed flourished and 8 months after that first class, Evolve Yoga sprouted.

Always learning, Erin’s relationship with yoga continues to grow, shape, challenge, and inspire her. Currently an E-RYT 200, Erin is continuing her yogic studies at the 500 hour level, a certified pre-natal yoga instructor and a certified Level II Reiki Healer in the Usui tradition. She is currently journeying through the Inkan Medicine Wheel with the Four Wind’s Society and upon completion in early 2015 will be a full Mesa carrier in the Q’uero tradition.

I am an ESL Teacher for grades K-3, so teaching kids yoga is just an added bonus to classroom teaching. My classes are filled with lots of fun & smiles. With laughter and community my classes are a celebration of each others’ special gifts.

With 3 little kids and busy lifestyle it’s the Yoga that keeps her grounded and bursting with creativity and light!

Jianna Hoss

Jianna Hoss

Teacher/RYT200

Jianna started practicing yoga in 2011 trying to find an outlet for stress and staying active while I transitioned to attending college. She practiced on her own for a few years before finally finding a home in Evolve’s studio. Since then, she’s learned to let yoga open up her life and heart to new opportunities to let go and grow. Jianna completed her 200hr certification the summer of 2014 at HeartWorkYoga in Northfield, Minnesota.

As a teacher, Jianna’s classes focus a lot on letting go of things that no longer serve us and continually finding new ways to grow in our mind, body, soul and heart. Yoga acts as a vessel for this growth.

When not on the mat, you can find Jianna hammocking in the trees, baking banana bread, and planning her next adventure.

New to Yoga?Considering joining a yoga class, but still not quite sure? Maybe we can help!

You’d be amazed how many times we hear this question! You’d be even more amazed at how inflexible even the teachers in the studio were before we started our own yoga journeys.

Yes, you can do yoga if you aren’t already flexible. Or strong. Or blessed with the body of a model. Yoga helps you to develop that flexibility and strength. And while nothing can give 99% of us the body of a model, a yoga practice can help you become more in tune with and in love with your body just as it is. You’ll be amazed at the flexibility and strength you gain every time you practice.

All you really need to begin practicing yoga is your body, your mind, and a bit of curiosity. It’s also helpful to have a pair of yoga leggings or shorts and a tank or tee that isn’t too baggy. Other than that bring a water bottle and a mat if you have one! (If you don’t have a mat, don’t worry, we have loaner mats at the studio.)

If you have zero experience with yoga, we suggest starting with Yoga 101, Slow Flow Vinyasa, Gentle Yoga, Yin Yoga, or a 10a Vinyasa Flow class.

If you have experience and are more “new to Evolve” than “new to yoga”, then browse through our class descriptions and see which one calls out to you!

In the end, all of our classes are open to beginners as every instructor offers modifications and alternatives to beginners and advanced practitioners alike. We do suggest some experience with yoga for a Hot Vinyasa Flow or a Power class, though.

None of us can. Yoga is never a competition. Listen to your body and do what it is telling you. Begin slowly and your body will progress when its ready. Yoga class is a place of non-judgment and acceptance, and never a place to achieve “perfection,” which is why we call it practice.

Our instructors will help you to modify poses to make the pose meet you where your body is in this moment, this day. Work with the suggested modifications until you find that you no longer need them.

Feel free to get in touch via our Contact form or by sending an email to hello@evolvesiouxcity.com – We’ll do our best to answer all your questions and help you get started on your yoga practice!
