Hannah Liechty

Hana began experiencing the power of a regular yoga practice in 2014. This influenced her to complete a 200 hour yoga teacher training the semester before she began her undergraduate education. Hana studied at Ahimsa yoga school in Ithaca NY and finds leading people through a yoga practice to be an extremely engaging and rewarding experience. Now that she has completed her undergraduate, Hana is looking to further her yogic education. Hana believes it is important to be gentle with yourself and incorporates that message in her classes. She loves hearing about student's experiences and thoughts, so feel free to come up to her after class!

Xavier Braboy

I graduated from ISU in May of 2022 with a degree in environmental health and sustainability. I previously taught for 3 years at ISU’s campus recreation teaching Zumba, cycle, yoga, and Pilates. In January of 2022 I completed the ACE group fitness instructor certification course. I love spending time in nature, listening to music, and baking. My favorite beverage is a Shirley temple!

Kelly Geigner

Like many women, over the years I have had a love/hate relationship with my body. I’ve tried all sorts of crazy things to get my body to do what I wanted it to need, instead of actually listening to what it needs. Needless to say, I hadn’t had much success.


Following a rough time in my life I started a healing journey and began to really understand how my emotions and feelings affect my body. And while I was always interested in learning about the mind/body connection, it wasn’t until I was on this personal journey that I really felt it and started actively practicing living with a greater mind/body connection.


Prior to my journey I had a solid meditation practice going, but found through training I could understand the experience and share it with others. I also started to bring Reiki energy and yoga into my life, which eventually led me to get teacher certified in both. I started these practices for myself and my family, but found that I love sharing them with others who are also wanting to heal.


In addition to yoga at Blooming Life, I’m passionate about helping women root and expand into their beautiful wild selves through my passion project @RiseUpWildflower.

Kristin Teeples

I started yoga in 2016 because I was experiencing anxiety at work. I found asana and breathwork to be very healing and wanted to share that with others. I received my 200 hour yoga teaching certificate from Yandara Yoga Institute along with 100 hours of Yin/Restorative yoga training and 100 hours of Soundbath & Yoga Nidra training.

Selina Pritchard

Selina began her yoga journey in 2014, when she was looking for a way to stay fit and manage stress while avoiding strain on old lower back and knee injuries. She quickly discovered the benefits of yoga both on and off the mat, and in 2019 decided to start yoga teacher training through YogaFit. After completing her Level One training last year, Selina taught 8 weeks of free classes at The Yoga Studio, helping yoga newcomers find calm and comfort in a new practice. Selina is thrilled to start officially leading classes and guiding others on their yoga paths!

Selina works full time as an OB-certified labor & delivery nurse on Bromenn’s Mother-Baby unit and LOVES to incorporate yoga into her nursing practice. She continues to pursue her RYT 200 and plans to take YogaFit’s level 2 and prenatal courses in April 2020!

Selina is a die-hard live music junkie, having been to hundreds of concerts all over the country. She loves dancing, singing, cooking, traveling, spending time with family & friends, thing outdoors when it’s warm outside, and watching documentaries. Her favorite thing in the world is her cat, Easy. =)

Hannah Russell

Hannah Russell began practicing yoga in 2009 during college after hearing from her chiropractor that it may help with pain resulting from her scoliosis. It didn’t take long to develop a love for yoga and begin to experience not only the physical benefits from her practice, but also mental and spiritual benefits. After moving back to her hometown, Bloomington, Illinois, her personal practice grew with the help from local and experienced instructors. The Pranakriya tradition deeply resonated within her, which led to obtaining her 200-hour Pranakriya yoga teaching certification in 2017. Since then, she’s taught thousands of students using a variety of styles and techniques, including vinyasa, gentle, meditative, restorative, yin, chair, pranayama, and meditation. She also has created, developed, and facilitated several workshops, retreats, and 6-week class series, such as “Yoga for Activists,” “Yoga for Rock Climbers,” and “Yoga for Depression.”


Hannah’s personal yoga practice brings her tremendous joy and empowerment. She considers it an honor and privilege to be able to share this within and throughout her community. When she’s not doing yoga or preparing to teach yoga, you can find her singing and writing songs, riding her bike around town, rock climbing, gardening, and cooking.
