I'd like to introduce you to my 2 new Assistant Managers - Lisa Schaefer and Adrienne Nothnagel!
When I placed an ad in Craigslist for an assistant Manager for the studio, the response was literally overwhelming. Everyone who applied were brimming with enthusiasm for the studio, for yoga and for life! It was near impossible to get through the applicants, but I did my best and chose 2 outstanding women to help me run the studio. Here is a bit more about them -
Lisa Schaefer - Lisa's childhood years were spent immersed in ballet and dance. While living overseas in Sydney, Australia in 2005, she discovered yoga for the first time. Since then, she's been a practitioner of Iyengar, Hatha, Vinyasa and most recently discovered her love of Yin yoga. She is currently working on her yoga teaching certification and plans to bring her Yin knowledge to Tula once she is certified. In the meantime, you'll find her assisting with running the studio. Lisa also spends her time running her eco-friendly handbag line, whetherbags.com, which you'll find inside Tula's boutique.
Adrienne Nothnagel- Adrienne is an activist, a poet, and a businesswoman. Born and raised in a small Indiana town, she longs to climb trees barefoot and find a deep connection with everyday life. She attended her first yoga class in 2007, seeking an exercise more organic than elliptical machines and weight lifting. However, she was skeptical that yoga was an “exercise.” Adrienne discovered that yoga is not only an incredibly demanding physical workout, but it can also serve as a conduit for personal and spiritual growth. Based on her own experience, she believes that yoga has the power to transform the mind and body in unexpected, yet positive and beautiful, ways. Adrienne is fascinated with yoga and is excited to share the philosophy and practice of yoga with her students. She fosters a class that is a balance of creativity and insight, and creates a challenging and restorative practice. In addition to helping to run Tula, Adrienne will also be teaching classes five days a week!
