Yelena Foster, RYT-500, ERYT-200 and certified Baptiste teacher, registered Nationally with Yoga Alliance, Director of 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training School since 2013, Massage Therapist WI-11492146
Energetic, dynamic and empowering, Yelena brings enthusiasm and passion for yoga and meditation to each class. Her classes are unique by level of variety and exuberance. She has been teaching since 2005 and meditation since 1988.
Both Yoga and Meditation have fit perfectly into her life and have given her stamina, confidence and, according to Yelena, made her an entirely new person. She opened her own studio in 2007, sharing with people how yoga changed her life.
Yoga opened new possibilities for herself and has given her the opportunity to express a greater purpose than she would have. Yoga lead her to meet with awesome Yoga people, Debbie Williamson, Baron Baptiste, Paige Elenson, Jonathan Reynolds, and Bryan Kest.
Yelena’s philosophy of life: ” Yoga is a gift and always available as a person needs. I am grateful for the gift of yoga and honored to share with you!”
Reading, dance, travel and meeting new people are a great addition to her fun life.
Angie Vis Leiterman, RYT-200
Angie started her yoga journey in 2016. After going to a few yoga classes with her coworkers she began to practice regularly and completed her 200-hour Vinyasa Flow training with Yelena at Lotus Yoga in September 2017.
Yoga has helped Angie strengthen her body and mind. Regular practice helps her to manage her anxiety and still her mind from the distractions of everyday life. In the early stages of her practice she struggled with simple poses, but with consistent practice and dedication she grew her strength.
This determination is present in her teaching. She wants her students to succeed and get the most out of every practice so they too can feel confident with their body and strengthen their minds.
Off the mat she enjoys learning, reading, snowboarding, skateboarding and hiking.
Cassie Hynek, RYT-200
Three years ago, my best friend asked me to go to a yoga class with her, I thought why not? My muscles could use some toning. Little did I know that attending that one class was going to change my life completely. Initially, I pursued yoga as a physical practice, but as I continued on my own journey, I realized that practicing yoga was so much more than that. It was Yelena’s subtle message and quiet whisperings of the spiritual side of yoga, the philosophy, Sanskrit, meditations, and mantras that called me back time and time again.
Coming to yoga felt like home. My heart found a new passion. Nothing compares to the feelings you get after finishing an empowering yoga class. I was drawn to yoga by the sense of connection and gratitude that I felt in my own practice.
I am an English as a Second Language teacher at Sabish Middle School, here in Fond du Lac. I love learning about different people, cultures and languages. In my free time, I enjoy traveling, reading, baking, and spending time outdoors!
In the spring of 2018, I completed my 200 hour teacher training. I love to teach a fun class that is challenging and allows you to push yourself. My classes are accessible to everyone and focus on exploration rather than destination. I teach from my heart and am so grateful to all the students who come to share their beautiful souls.
Kari Cobb, RYT-200
Kari Cobb has been a licensed acupuncturist for over 15 years and is the owner of Fond du Lac Acupuncture Clinic. Over the years, patience have asked her repeatedly what else they can do to improve their health and decrease or eliminate a variety of symptoms such as pain, insomnia, and stress. Ms. Cobb responded back by recommending yoga to them. Finally, in 2019, she completed her 200-hour teacher training certification and can now teach it to people herself. Her current focus is on senior yoga-a slower, gentler form of yoga for seniors to help stretch and strengthen the body, relax the mind and improve balance.
