Jules Janke

Yoga Instructor

I found yoga in 2003. I loved the way this particular “movement “made me connect with myself. I have always had body image & self love issues and this was unlike anything I’d ever tried before. Being an athlete my whole life, I was used to challenging myself and I was never afraid to sweat, this was different. In 2011 I was ready to learn more and completed my 500 hr certification with D’ana Baptise. I have continued learning this method with other power influenced trainings. I love attending master intensives; some favorites have been: Seane Corn, Bryan Kest and Mitchel Blier. I’m also a retreat “junkie” I think they’re essential to continue our evolvement and simply get out in nature and play. My practice has helped me accept and love myself, honor my body and find peace to deal with the intricacies of life. It’s amazing how hard that can be sometimes. In my classes, I love to combine creative sequencing, a spirit of playfulness, and a dose of inspiration to help you deepen your practice. I seek to help others thrive in life by nurturing body, mind and soul and my hope is that you step off the mat feeling refreshed, nourished and balanced.

Julie Boam

Yoga Instructor

Julie likes to think that yoga found her. As a busy mother of three, life was leaving her frazzled and fatigued. She realized that she felt a disconnect between the to-do list that had to be tackled every day and the authentic person she really was at her center. Yoga was a heavensent way to consciously yoke the body and spirit as a whole, rather than two separate parts that don’t get to talk often enough. Her yoga mat has become a place to honor the blessing of being human, to let go of negative thoughts and patterns, and to be suffused with more clarity, acceptance and peace. Yoga has become an integral part of her life and she is honored to be able to share it with others. Julie completed the teacher training program at Infusion with Corena Hammer. She has a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Weber State University. She enjoys reading, writing, singing and hiking.

KaLin Hodges

Pilates Instructor

I didn’t do much in the form of exercise until I turned 30 and had 3 boys to chase. As my family grew (stopping at 5…), I realized I needed to be healthy to take care of them. I began trying many different options in the exercise world, running, biking, weight lifting, cardio classes, or any new trend that came along, to get myself into shape. I immediately saw the benefits, but none of the different options were holding my attention for long. A personal trainer told me that I would eventually find the exercise that would strike a ‘balance’ for me. I joined Infusion, fell in love with the yoga and mat pilates classes and couldn’t wait to try the reformer! After the first class I was fascinated by the connection that is made with the mind and body through pilates and the challenge the reformer brought to me. Everything comes together when your core is the source of strength in exercising. I had found the exercise for me! Pilates practice is the perfect format for your body to lengthen, strengthen and tone. I was fortunate to have the opportunity to train from Corena on the reformer, and become a teacher doing something that can strengthen others and myself along the way. I love a good, challenging class and learning something new with each class I take or teach. Its great to be a part of the team here at Infusion.

Kara Munford

Pilates/Yoga Instructor

I first heard of Pilates from a friend. I Googled it when I got home, I found Infusion and of course Corena. That is how it all begins. I started Mat Pilates and was soon enticed to try the Reformer tables. I was terrified of them, I could barely do the mat exercises and this looked harder. But, after just a few sessions I was hooked. I no longer needed to go to the gym. I could feel myself getting stronger internally.I was actually 1.5 inches taller, and I no longer walked with turned out feet. THIS is amazing!!! In 2008 Infusion was offering a Reformer Certification through Kim Lee (Madonna’s Trainer), so I jumped at the chance to learn more. He was amazing! After completing the certification and the teacher training I started teaching. I fell in LOVE! I can’t quite describe the feeling of excitement when a client completes an exercise their body has never allowed. I also soon discovered that I like to push clients to do just a little more, work just a little harder. I really like clients to think of Me the next day!

Yoga has helped Lindsey find that inner peace, beauty, and strength that is the essence of who she is. The greatest gift yoga has given her is the rediscovery of her authentic self and the ability to share that with others.

MaryBeth Hall

RYT 200 MaryBeth has been practicing yoga since 2005. She received her 200 hr. Yoga Alliance Certification through Infusion. She began her teacher training in 2008 and started teaching at that same time. “I originally started my yoga journey as a natural way to heal my back pain after having children. Right away there was a significant reduction with my back issues, but more importantly, I experienced a huge reduction with my stress level. I felt more connected to myself and experienced a sense of peace that I had not felt in a very long time. I chose to become a yoga teacher as a way to pass it forward. I want to share yoga with everybody because every”body” can do yoga. As a nurturing teacher, my focus for the student is staying connected to breath, unlocking subtle energy blocks in the body, while connecting mind, body and spirit.” MaryBeth enjoys spending time with her family and being outside connecting to nature while working in their yard and garden. She and her family enjoys snowboarding, hiking, camping and swimming at Bear Lake or just taking lazy Sunday afternoon strolls.

Mallorie Donovan-Harpster

Yoga is my love and passion. It is my sanctuary, my teacher, my guide to my awareness. Yogas has brough me mindfulness, self love and a self acceptance I have never known and that is just the tip of the iceberg. Teaching yoga is a dream come true for me. It is my way of being of service to those who are seeking themselves; just as I am.

Sheri Widerburg

Yoga Instructor

Sheri took her first yoga class in 2002 while she was completing her bachelor’s degree at the University of Utah. She immediately felt a connection with the practice and philosophy of yoga. She felt like this was the way her body was meant to move and found that the breath and meditative aspects of the practice calmed and focused her as she juggled a full-time career with being a full-time student, wife and step-mother. Sheri has a deep desire to share the gift of yoga with others and to support them in finding the healing and peace that can be accessed through the practice.
