Rockin Yogis


This class is taught by:

Diana Rodgers

Diana always knew she would want to teach yoga someday after opening We Yogis in 2012. In 2013-2014, she joined We Yogis first teacher training program with Julie Boyd and Cheryl Oliver as their guides. Diana completed her training in 2014, and has been teaching at We ever since. "As my teachers say, it's not yoga perfect, it's a practice." There is no judgement, no comparison, no achievement. Just enjoy the journey of mind, body, and spirit in each one of Diana's classes. Come experience this life changing practice that unites us all.

Maggie Niemiec

After attending her first power vinyasa flow class, Maggie was hooked on yoga's invigorating energy and felt compelled to share this with others through her teaching. Within less than a year from her first yoga class she received her 200 hour teacher certification under Susie Caicedo with Organic Soul. Maggie teaches challenging and empowering classes set to upbeat music with creative flows and fun transitions. These rigorous classes focus on postural alignment and proper breath control while building strength and flexibility. She encourages students to find their edge as they breathe, move and most importantly, have fun!
When not on her mat, you can find Maggie fitting in her cardio by chasing her two young children.

Susie Caicedo

My classes are a blend of Ashtanga and Hatha styles that allows the spirit to play, the mind to calm and the body to become a temple. My intention is to create acknowledgement without judgment; encouragement and constant development and growth. I have been teaching yoga since 2004 and leading Yoga Teacher Training Programs since 2010. Yoga provides me with inspiration and excitement for life; I translate this inspiration and zest thru challenging, creative classes along with fun music that helps to bring out the fearless warrior in you and opens the door to discover your inner beauty and grace.

Bret McKinney

A good friend and Yogi brought me to WeYogis some years ago to Rockin Yogis class on a sunday afternoon.....I had been practicing yoga at the gym I belonged to and was really starting to get into it. I had never experienced anything like what WeYogis had to offer. the experience was unbelievable, the music, the sweat, practitioners, the flow,...all so amazing! I eventually joined and started practicing every single day. I couldn't believe all of the positive changes that the practice brought me physically, mentally, and emotionally. I felt like a better human all around. I begin to desire to teach watching those around me become teachers and grow their practice so I sucked it up and took the dive and did my YTT 200 Hr at WeYogis and I have never looked back. Teaching and Practicing at these studios gives me great joy and I continue to grow each and every day.

Merritt Russ

Merritt is a CYT-200, having completed her Vinyasa training under Nicolle Callahan, Susie Caicedo & Cheryl Oliver; her talented teachers being rooted in the Ashtanga method mean Merritt's training came with authenticity and tradition. Merritt's goals for her students are to build a lifelong practice through understanding fundamentals, using proper, safe alignment and ensure each practitioner feels accomplished and balanced after each experience, learning something new each class. Merritt's love of travel and discovering new things mean that the music will always be new and exciting, and tidbits of knowledge from attending classes around the world will be weaved into sequences. Merritt lives in Dallas with her husband, two children, and two fur babies, with whom she likes to practice her sequences before teaching.

Nicole Preston

Nicole was first introduced to yoga in early 2000. At the time, she was a competitive tennis player and an avid runner. She was surprised at how amazing she felt after her first class. Not only was she much calmer, but she also left exhausted, as if she had literally worked every muscle in her body. From that moment forward, Nicole was hooked on yoga, and she began a very regular practice. Nicole completed a 200 hour vinyasa teacher training at At One Studios in Scottsdale, AZ.in 2005. She also recently finished an advance teacher training with Corepower in California. Her teaching is influenced by her mentor, Julie Boyd. Nicole lived in California for a year where she studied with many teachers including Krista and Brock Cahill, who helped take her teaching and practice to a new level. Nicole’s challenging vinyasa class combines music, strength, flexibility and the power of breath. Her class allows students to transform their practice into a meditative flow. She truly believes that anything is possible through yoga, and that if you allow it to happen, it will not only transform your body, but also your mind.

Rachael Fallon

I discovered yoga in 2010 while looking for creative ways to stay fit at a local gym. I was intrigued and enjoyed the classes, but my life took off in a different direction and I stepped away from it for awhile. When I came back to it in 2013, I immediately felt an overwhelming sense of community. I felt like I was home. The openness and availability I experienced was inspiring. I decided that I needed more and I wanted to share my love of the practice with others.
In July 2016, I received my RYT-200 from We Yogis. During my training, I gained the knowledge and confidence to open my mind, body, and spirit farther than I ever thought possible. I gained incredible mentors and friends that challenged and inspired me to be a strong practitioner. The drive to share my passion with others was undeniable.
In my classes, I strive to provide an atmosphere where everyone, no matter their abilities or level of experience, can feel welcomed. I strive to create the sense of community that I first felt when I started practicing yoga several years ago. I believe that through breath and body/mind communication, we can create unity. My hope is that everyone can walk away feeling relieved and refreshed, ready to be inspired by the world and the potential that lies within us all.

Sabra Hanson

I have been a competitive athlete since a very early age, loving the endorphin rush and the thrill of competition. I completed the Iron Man in Lake Placid in 1999, the Galveston Half Iron Man in 2012 and the Iron Man in Louisville, Kentucky also in 2012 and was a competitive swimmer in Canada. After enduring many unresolved injuries throughout my body I turned to yoga. Through yoga I found a new edge and understanding, free from injuries. Peace with strength, flexibility and endurance were what then evolved for me. I tell follow athletes and students to listen to their own bodies and that they hold the master key to their possibilities. Various teachers have influenced me in the practice of yoga including Baron Baptiste and Dave and Cheryl Oliver. Still learning I hope to continue to help others to realize their potential.

Jessica East

As an avid yogi for over a decade, Jessica knew that becoming a teacher would be a natural progression in her practice. She received her 200-hour teacher training in 2009 and has been empowering others to find a sense of strength and balance through yoga ever since. Today she teaches an energetic vinyasa flow that is both invigorating and approachable. Through the breath, asana and music, she creates a fun space to play and find liberation from fear and resistance. She travels the world to learn from other yogis, and is continuously inspired by the incredible folks she meets along the way. Off the mat, Jessica works for a beauty company and promotes nutrition and wellness as a health coach.

Ashlie McGill

Ashlie literally (almost) ran into yoga watching Jessica Young demo at a Luke’s Locker event in 2002. Mesmerized by the light of the demonstration, she attended Jessica’s class the very next day. From that savasana, life just became brighter. Ashlie started teaching in 2006 and leads a powerful, fun, nurturing class.
Ashlie studies with Baron Baptiste and is a Baptiste Yoga Certified Teacher. She loves Baptiste Power Yoga because of the awakenings the sequence inspires within, over and over again. In 2014, Ashlie completed the We Teacher Training with Julie Boyd and Cheryl Oliver (Ashtanga-based Vinyasa). Teaching at We is such a joy for Ashlie. She is grateful for a space that celebrates yoga for all ages and paces. Ashlie lives in east Dallas with her husband and two kids, who are yogis by nature.

Julie Cooper

Julie’s yoga journey began with a running injury. Looking to find the same endorphin release while healing her ankle she found bikram yoga and was instantly hooked to the structured postures, the heat, and the zen-like state after class. She realized that through doing yoga she was finally able to calm her mind and that benefit extended to her home life. Later on during pregnancy, looking for a lighter routine, she found Vinyasa yoga and enjoyed the fluidity of linking breath to movement. Post-pregnancy she was looking for a better combination of the heat of bikram, but the constant movement of a true Vinyasa Flow. Taking her first Rockin’ class with Gina Dunn, she finally found a good balance of both as Gina helped her realize how amazing yoga is for the mind, body, and spirit. It was at We Yogis that she fell in love with the practice and realized how much more yoga is than just a workout. Inspired by her teachers and wanting to “pay it forward” she signed up for Asana Dealers Teacher Training in 2015. Under the amazing guidance of Gina Dunn, Nicolle Callahan, and Cheryl Oliver she realized her calling to be a teacher. In her classes she aims to get you sweating, refine your movements, and help you realize the benefits of yoga on and off the mat. Meet her there!

Kalene McGraner

Kalene's teaches an exhilarating vinyasa flow full of opportunities to strengthen the body, neutralize the mind and enliven the spirit. She came to yoga after walking past a studio while living in St. Louis where the students were exiting with a serenity and sweat unlike anything she had seen in a gym. After 1 class she was hooked. She was drawn to the non-judgmental environment, the community of yogis and that each time she stepped onto her mat she retreated to a mystical place free from worry and stress that only yoga could take her. Her physical and mental health improved, anxiety dissipated and her overall attitude toward life shifted. Yoga is truly her medicine; making her a better wife, mother and friend. After the practice unfolded what pranayama and vinyasa could do for her mind, body and spirit she felt called to retreat from the fast-paced corporate world and gain her certification so she could share the serenity and harmony the practice has brought to her. Kalene earned her 200-hour Vinyasa Flow certification in November 2014, and is always a student first.

Shirley Ho

Shirley’s yoga journey started 3 years ago when her friend / teacher encouraged her to try out a new yoga studio with friendly staff and, most importantly, childcare. She initially fell in love with the practice because the classes were fun, energetic and interesting. This faster paced, vinyasa flow was not the kind of yoga she had experienced previously. Then as Shirley practiced more, she began to realize all the other intrinsic benefits of yoga - the strength and flexibility of the mind and body during the practice, the calmness that manifests afterwards.

Shirley initially pursued teacher training as a means to learn more about yoga. After receiving her 200 hour yoga teacher training from Cheryl Oliver (Sanskrit scholar of Scottsdale, AZ and the Asana Dealers (Gina Marie Dunn and Nicolle Callahan, Dallas, TX), she is excited to share her practice and inspire others in their yoga journey.

Practice in this open-level vinyasa flow with optional inversions set to upbeat, current music.
