Lex Smith   Alexa Smith is a certified yoga instructor through the International Yoga Alliance and is based in Columbus, Ohio. She believes that building a mind/body connection can lead to healing on both the physical and mental levels.  In September, 2017 she received her certification for the 100-hour EMBER Trauma Sensitive Yoga Training from mentors Michele Vinbury and Marybeth Hamilton of Yoga On High in Columbus, Ohio. The EMBER program allowed her to dive deep into the world of trauma, identifying with extensive research from world renowned Psychotherapist Dr. Bessel van der Kolk and Yoga Nidra expert Richard Miller, Ph.D.  Alexa's teaching focus is female survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence, victims of human trafficking, and those suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (such as veterans) and populations dealing with grief.

Michele Faith   Michele’s yoga journey started in 2004, when nagging running injuries forced her to find an alternate form of “exercise.”  Over the years, she discovered that yoga is more than just a physical practice and realized that she wanted to share the joys of yoga through teaching.  In May of 2016, Michele received her RYT 200 certification from The Yoga Training Center.  Her desire to continue learning led her to the 300 hour therapeutic teacher training program at Yoga on High, where she has received her Reiki Level II and Ember certifications.   Michele believes that yoga should be accessible to all.  Yoga should empower and encourage students, no matter their age, income, or physical limitations.  She strives to create an environment in her classes where everyone feels welcome.  Off the mat, Michele enjoys food (eating, cooking and watching cooking shows), reading historical fiction and playing with her two rescue dogs, Lucy and Walter.
