CJ McClellan

Yoga Instructor

CJ lives to learn, laugh and play! His love for fitness is what led him to yoga.  Looking for a physically challenging and athletic cross-training activity he decided to give yoga a shot.  He swiftly fell in love with the practice and was filled with an eagerness to return to his mat day after day. Shortly after finding yoga, CJ decided to take it one step further and completed yoga teacher training and after completing his training he dove in head first and began teaching.

CJ teaches rigorous, athletic, vinyasa style classes. He loves playing with arm balances and the challenge they offer, so expect them in class!  His classes are stimulating, playful, upbeat and accessible to all levels.

CJ continues his practice daily, both on and off the mat; he hopes that through teaching he can instill in other yogis the same connection that calls him to love yoga, and more importantly he wants to leave them with a huge, happy smile. Be Courageous. Be Spontaneous. Be Fearless.

Fitness Philosophy

Exercise is the best way to improve your body, health and attitude (not to mention sleep, strength, stress level...the list goes on and on). I motivate clients and classes, first-timers and life-long athletes, to meet their health and fitness goals. Let's eliminate the guess work, have some fun and make your own long list of improvements.

Mollie Smith

Yoga Instructor

Mollie has been practicing yoga for over six years and is diligently working on her RYT 200hr teaching certification through Yoga Alliance—largely by the inspiration and instruction of her gifted mentor, Beth Banks. Mollie has completed Yoga Teacher Training for Health & Fitness Professionals with Beth Banks.


Fitness has been a part of Mollie’s life from an early age, swimming before she could walk, learning to ski at age 3, and dancing ballet with the Metropolitan Ballet of Wichita during her youth and formative years. She still remembers her mom doing Jane Fonda workouts in the living room--learning an early life lesson about minding our bodies and taking care of ourselves from the inside out.


It took only a brief introduction to yoga to get Mollie hooked, as the physical and mental effects of the practice were evident immediately. She relishes in the idea that yoga truly is a practice, embracing all ages and physical skill levels, meeting the student exactly where they are today.   She hopes to impart the physical benefits of strength and mobility along with the mental benefits of relaxation and clarity during each class she leads. Mollie’s excitement about yoga and her passion for sharing the practice is infectious.
