Haley fell in love with yoga when she discovered you could strengthen and stretch all in one class, all while breaking a good sweat. Her specialty is fun, vibrant power-flow classes that help students build strength from the inside out. Laughter, sweat, and a bumpin’ playlist are signature of Haley’s classes.
