Kerri Kerr-Apito- RYT200
Kerri’s yoga journey began with a Rodney Yee DVD that became her “yoga workout” that she would do once in a while as part of her workout collection. It wasn’t until she took a daily yoga challenge that something clicked and the benefits of yoga opened up to her. Kerri has a great passion for the healing arts and yoga fit right in. While in school at IIN (Institute for Integrative Nutrition) getting her certification as a holistic health coach, she decided to enroll in a personal training course. That led to an online yoga certification, which opened up doors to a possible teaching job. Excited with the offer to teach, she enrolled in Chakra Flow Yoga School in Wayne. Then her love of Pilates was calling for a certification. She is also a Reiki Master teacher and an aromatherapist. Kerri is co-owner of K&P Holistic Health & Fitness.

Her DEDICATION grew as her yoga experience began to expand from the constant knowledge that she was encountering, pouring out from the different teachers and their different yogic backgrounds/disciplines-EXAMPLES: Anusara-Ashtanga-Kundalini-Iyengar-Jivakmuti-Dharma-Hatha-Yin-Power/Core-Vinyasa Flows and more…..-that benefitted her in MANY ways to advance, perform, and take her yoga to the NEXT level.

Not ONLY because of her extensive knowledge, passion, and dedication to & of yoga-BUT- also her background of being a pole dancer/performer/competitor for over 11 1/2 years & teacher for an added on 4+ years of this artistic expression & craft that to which she hides underneath her YOGIC-guru ( teaching) belt.
Ana Sorce was introduced to classic Hatha Yoga by her mother when she was about 8. Then the practice was forgotten for many years until she was re-introduced to Yoga by her friend in 2002.

She is grateful for the wisdom that her teachers have shared with her and in turn, wants to be able to help and inspire others along the same path. Elisa believes yoga is for everyone no matter your shape or size, you absolutely do not have to be perfect, because nobody is, we are all the same.
