Yoga Instructor, Brittany, at Evolve Yoga in Leesburg, FL

Brittany Carter has a lifelong background in dance. She intuited at the age of 3 that movement would be very important for her journey. Her awakening started the year she finished college when she accepted that her path would be a bit different than she thought. However, it truly began before her four month voyage through Southeast Asia, studying Buddhism, Hinduism, yoga, and meditation.

She sat in two silent Vipassana meditation retreats in Thailand, looking inward and uncovering immense peace. She studied a large variety of yoga styles in Thailand and Indonesia, from restorative to aerial to Iyengar.

Yoga, dance, and meditation became the vehicles for her connection to something higher within and without. She has just returned in May from two months in India where she completed her 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training in Rishikesh in Ashtanga and Vinyasa styles.

Brittany has since been traveling around Florida and Europe teaching, learning, and exploring along her yogic journey. She wishes to combine the strength and specificity of yoga with the fluidity and freedom of dance. Her goal is to help reconnect others with their own bodies and discover the wisdom that they have within.

Monica yoga instructor at Evolve Yoga

Monica  tried a yoga sculpt class for the first time in Virginia 5 years ago because she needed to find an outlet for her stressful work life. She never expected that one class would open her eyes to all forms of yoga, she was hooked! She took all classes offered at the studio (Vinyasa Flows, Hot Power Fusions, Yin and Restorative).

Monica soon took a yoga teacher training course and received her 200-hr certification in August 2017, after 8 weeks of immersed yoga training!
Moving to Florida a few short months later, she was eager to find a studio where she could continue teaching various types of hot yoga.
Her goal is to have the students look at classes as their escape and simply to take the 60 minutes for themselves. “I want them to leave my class with a different perspective on the outside world, knowing they can handle anything life throws their way.”, say Monica
Monica teaches: Hot Yoga Fusion, Power Yoga and Yoga Sculpt.
Tracy yoga instructor at Evolve Yoga

Tracy Carullo received her 200-Hour RYT from an Intensive Yoga Works International training program in Bali, Dec 2018. Yoga has become Tracy’s passion after some major challenges led her to the Yogi lifestyle to heal physically and emotionally.

She has a desire to focus on helping individuals heal, gain strength and find freedom through different aspects of Yoga.

Tracy has an extensive background in leadership, training, education and finds comfort in helping others. She is ready to grow and learn as an Instructor, as she challenges you to become the ‘best you’ through loving kindness.

Erin yoga instructor at Evolve Yoga

Erin has been practicing yoga for about 3 years. She found yoga after being diagnosed with epilepsy and needing a way to quiet my mind and still my body. She took her first teacher training just a few weeks after becoming involved in yoga community and has been hooked since.

“I’m so grateful for this practice and that I get to share it with other people!” says Erin.
