Jenn Peterson

Owner / Yoga & Pilates Instructor

Jenn is the proud owner of Infusion Yoga & Pilates as well as an E-RYT 500, Pilates Instructor, and a Licensed massage therapist specializing in Structural Integration. Jenn began her education in 2007 at Renaissance College of Massage Therapy thinking that she was only interested in the energy work. It was there that she began her deep fascination with the physical body, and all of its miraculous abilities leading her to embark on to a lifelong exploration of functional movement and the mind, body, spirit connection. Jenn has been a student of yoga for the last 14 years and has been teaching yoga since she completed her 200-hr. yoga training with Corena Hammer in 2009. The more she learned about the body in motion, the more she wanted to learn which lead her to complete her 500-hour yoga training in 2012 and a Pilates certification in 2013. 

Jenn has a love and passion for exploring and teaching the mind, body, spirit connection that yoga and Pilates have to offer and the unmatched core strength and stability the combination of the two provides. Jenn is also the Lead trainer of Infusion's RYT 200 and 500 hr. Yoga teacher training. As much as Jenn loves to teach she will always first and foremost be a student of Yoga and Pilates. She maintains a strong personal practice with the belief that while studying, reading and researching are of the utmost importance, hands on tangible experience of personal movement and practice provides a level of growth and awareness that cannot be found in any book or online forum. She regularly takes classes and continuing education from other teachers to gain insight into her own practice and shares what she loves, what she knows and what she believes to be of value with a heart full of gratitude. Infusion was the birth place of the Journey home to her heart. 

In May of 2015 Corena Hammer, Founder of Infusion Yoga & Pilates, was ready to let go of the reins of the studio and move on to new adventures leaving the studio in Jenn's hands. She has taken on this exciting adventure with a commitment to provide an empowering and supporting environment to each and every person that walks in the doors. Jenn believes that everybody deserves to find a place where they feel valued and welcomed and strives daily to provide that space for this sweet community.

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!

She strives to create classes where students connect to their inherent beauty, strength, divinity and grace. Lin’s primary teachers include Bob Hoffa, Matt Newman and Jami Larson.

Growing up in the mountains above Salt Lake City, Utah, spending her childhood in nature helped her to experience a peace and connection to herself that supported her search for a deeper level of understanding. As a result, over the last twenty years, she has worked with the recovery community through Genesis Books and is currently facilitating a mindfulness program along with recovery-based yoga classes, teaching compassion and an appreciation for each day.

Yoga has helped Lindsey find the inner peace, beauty, surrender 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.

Clytie Ames

Yoga Instructor

I have been teaching yoga for 16 years.  I completed my first 200 hour Anusara teacher training in 2008, and have been heavily influenced by several wonderful Anusara teachers.  I have an extensive background in dance and  fitness.  Currently I am a student of Sianna Sherman and Swami Chetanananda.  I love teaching yoga because the practices have transformed me in so many ways mentally and emotionally, I strive to pay this forward to my students.  A typical class of mine includes creative play in asana, pranayama, mantra, meditation, and mudra; since these areas of study have all been part of my magical yoga journey.

I am blessed to be in a beautiful partnership with my husband, Darren; and am a mother to four little humans who constantly teach me about true love.

Angie Bailey

I love life and appreciate the balance and fullness I have been able to see.

Life is beautiful, wondrous and open to possibility.

Alesha Braithwaite

Yoga Instructor

Alesha is a loving wife and mother of two young children. She has devoted herself to creating a happy home and spending quality time with her family. As a stay at home mom she wanted to also find a way to provide time for her own self development.

Alesha has always had a love for movement and body spirit connection. In her younger years she perused dance which was always her happy place. Naturally yoga also resonated with her. At first, she was self-taught then she began pouring over Instagram, and YouTube in search of new yoga sequencing and posture. She was able to connect intuitively to her center. Alesha has always been a very gentle and empathic type, which she now fluidly incorporates into her daily practice and teaching.  

Soon Alesha reached a point where the desire to pursue her passion had out-grown what the internet alone could provide. Infusion studio was the perfect fit for her. She completed her 500-hour teaching certification in December of 2016. She is currently pursuing an additional 500 hours of training. In the future Alesha hopes to add energy work to broaden her versatility. 

Alesha keeps her classes simple yet challenging. She enjoys Vinyasa flow, restorative-yoga, and Yin to name a few. 

When she isn’t at the studio, she enjoys her own private yoga and meditation practice, being outdoors, and spending time with her family.

Hannah Knaphus

Pilates Instructor

I am a Utah native and graduated from the University of Utah with a degree in biology. I swam competitively for years, love trail running and mountain biking and compete in the occasional triathlon. I finally gave Pilates a chance after years of my mom begging me to try and haven't looked back! I love how it’s grown my strength and stability and given me awareness of how to effectively move my body during any activity. Pilates was a huge help during my recovery from a decade long eating disorder - teaching me mindful movement and how to focus on what my body can do rather than what it looks like.

I spend most of my time chasing my two year old and snuggling my new baby, taking frequent chocolate breaks along the way. I love the amazing people I’ve met in the Pilates world and look forward to connecting and working with more of you!

Jessica Barnes

Yoga Instructor

Many moons ago Jessica stepped into a Yoga class and the message from that class was like opening a window to her heart. Years later Jessica took a leap of faith and went through her first Teacher Training (one of many, and many more to come). Deciding that being vulnerable and letting her freak flag fly was both honoring to herself AND her community, she's been teaching ever since. She feels that if she can be who she is and know that.is.enough than she can share that message with anyone who's willing and open to listen.

"Always remember you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, smarter than you think and twice as beautiful as you'd ever imagined. Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself." - Rumi
