She fell in love with yoga while living on the Big Island of Hawaii and decided to move to Denver to pursue her dream of teaching. She received her 200-hour RYT, 60-hour Hot and 60-hour Yin certifications through Yoga Pod Denver West and fell in love with Hot and Yin along the way.

Zoe Festa-Woods

Hello Llama Yama Yoga community! My name is Zoe Festa-Woods and I am a certified vinyasa and yin yoga instructor. Last summer, I spent a month in Bali, Indonesia learning functional anatomy, mindfulness techniques, the history of yoga and so much more (I’d love to tell you all about it if you are ever interested!). Since then, I have taught both styles at ASU-Tempe and here in Lake Havasu; enjoying every second of it and learning just as much from my students as they are from me. I am beyond excited to have the opportunity to continue to teach in my hometown while I am here finishing the last year of my bachelors in kinesiology at ASU@Lake Havasu. I am looking forward to seeing you in the studio and getting to know you all! Until then, “still the mind, inhale peace, let go of worries, exhale stress, notice the breath, connect to all, embrace calm.”

Diane Bradley

Hey! My name is Diane Bradley, and I am a certified 200-hour Yoga Instructor. I received my 200 YTT in October 2018 in Carlsbad, California. I began my yoga journey 7 years ago during a time I could not run due to an injury. During that first class, with the help of an amazing teacher, I began to slow my body down, and my mind soon followed. Since this class I knew I needed yoga to be a consistent part of my life. I chose to enroll in YTT with the intention of learning how to teach and share my experiences and the transformation that yoga has brought to my life. As a teacher I wish to express what resonates with me physically, mentally, and spiritually in my yoga practice.

Ginny Sautner

Ginny Sautner has been a yoga practitioner for over 20 years.  During that time, she has studied with Tim Miller, one of the first American Ashtangi yogis and Jeana Darlington, who studied under BKS Iyengar.  She certified officially through Trisatya Yoga several years ago.  With a foundation in Ashtanga yoga, her classes are typically Ashtanga-inspired vinyasa and heated.  A longtime Havasu resident, a public school teacher, and a mother, Ginny is grateful for a space to share her love of a yoga practice with others.  

Dr. Lucinda Mallory

Dr Lucinda (Dr Lu) is not only an alternative medicine physician; she is also a high energy athlete that teaches hot bootcamps. She was  trained in Hot Pilates Extreme as well as Barefoot Boot camps at  BodyHeat studio  in Las Vegas, Nevada. Her high energy and knowledge of the human body and how to fine tune it are talents that she brings to Llama Yama Yoga!

Dana Cuney

Hi, my name is Dana. I began my yoga practice in my fifties and it wasn’t long before I began to experience the benefits of yoga. I wanted to learn more about this wonderful practice, so I decided to attain my Teaching Certification, which led me to other certifications in the many facets of yoga. My learning process is ongoing and life changing. I love teaching and bringing the benefits I have received to my students. Yoga builds strength, balance and flexibility, while helping connect mind, body and soul. Let us help you relax and make time just for you. Hope to see you on the mat!
