OWNER/ INSTRUCTOR/YOGA TEACHER TRAINER
Kelly, the owner of our Jacksonville yoga studio, loves her "job" more than anyone should! Every day is an opportunity and adventure, and she is so grateful for each one. Kelly says, “Yoga was my first love, and barre and cycle came along and have quickly become just as important in my life. Being able to provide an effective, fun, and diverse workout has always been a dream, but I never could have dreamed of the amazing community of wonderful people this fitness studio has led me to meet. I love my Rebel Tribe, and I am so thankful to get the chance to make even a small difference in someone's life. Namaslay, Rebels!”

Marlene has been teaching cycling classes for four years now and loves it! Marlene always has a smile on her face and strives to make your day better with her upbeat cycle classes! Other than keeping busy with cycle on Friday mornings at 7:30am, she juggles three kids and being a Navy wife!
Courtney's sass and amazing playlists ( think 2000s hip hop and anything remixed with a heavy beat drop!) bring an exciting and sweaty cycle class every single time. Her favorite thing about teaching is that you get to let everything outside of the spin room go and orchestrate an environment where everyone else can do the same! Courtney loves staying active, but you can catch her balancing out life snacking on some chips &salsa with a dark beer in hand cheering on the Gators! Catch Courtney on the schedule every Monday night at 5:30pm and Tuesday morning at 6:30am!
Yoga & Barre Instructor
Michelle is originally a Georgia peach (but her favorite fruit=avocados!) and she loves connecting both barre and yoga into classes to uplift and empower others through mindful movement." I love being able to inspire others to push themselves outside of their comfort zone, so that when they leave my class, they feel better than when they first walked in." Michelle loves taking classes as inspiration to keep her own practice strong and to keep the creative teaching juices flowing! This former college athlete focuses a great deal on mental and physical health, but she is still a sucker for some pizza and an ice cold beer! When she is not making you work up a sweat to Beyonce in her classes, you can find her exploring new places with the fam! Catch Michelle early AM on Mondays and Wednesdays at 6:30, or in the evening on Thursday at 7:15pm!
Morgan is an author, (most importantly) a Mommy, and a vinyasa lover! She likes her yoga like our sunshine state: lots of sun(salutations), hot, sweaty, and flowy! "I love being able to get creative with my sequencing and plan classes by moving intuitively in my own personal practice! I am inspired by the law of attraction and the belief that we can manifest the life that we want." Morgan loves playing popular songs and reggae remixes on her power playlists. When she is not teaching yoga, you can find her writing, reading, watching Friends (on repeat), and trying new restaurants! Also, coffee is life (obviously). Flow with Morgan during lunch time at noon on Fridays!
Diane is RYT200 certified through Rebel Studio! Her classes are as refreshing as her energy, and you can always expect to leave her class floating on a cloud! Diane loves the opportunity to share yoga with others while continuing to learn and grow as student and a teacher. Diane's hobbies and other passions are food and wine. Fun fact - her camera roll contains as many pictures of food and drink as it does of her family! (Our kind of girl!)

Tiffany started yoga in search of all the benefits she heard it had to offer. After her first class, she was sore, frustrated and thought she would never come back. But a few days later she was back practicing and continued to practice steadily. On the recommendation of a friend she signed up for Baptiste training. The yoga was challenging but fun and left her feeling empowered and inspired; not only on her mat but in her life as well. She now practices & teaches several yoga styles & hopes to share her love of yoga with everyone around her. She strives to create an environment that is fun, challenging and welcoming for all! Catch Tiffany on Friday mornings at 9am for an amazing way to finish the week!
