Jen Xanders

Flourish Yoga + Wellbeing and All People Yoga Center - Hot Yoga

Jen's journey crossed the path of yoga around 1995 as she looked to create a healthier lifestyle. It has been an ever-evolving and changing experience that has deepened and enriched all aspects of her life and relationships.

She finds this practice to be a metaphor for life that helps us hone the tools that we need to not just survive our hectic lives, but to live love them!

Shea Rankin

The Cycle Studio (owner) - Runner, Cyclist, Triathlete Coach

Shea has always been an athlete, but it wasn’t until several wild college years, an unhealthy lifestyle and a few extra pounds, that being active became a priority. Shea competed in her first triathlon at age 23. She was in poor shape and went straight to the race after closing the bar she tended in the early morning! Not an ideal way to start a race for most triathletes. She finished the race and fueled by its energy and her love for competing, she couldn’t wait to do it again. Fast forward 15 years - Shea has competed in 100’s of triathlons, from sprint distance to the Ironman distance. Shea is now a competitive age-grouper, often winning sprint races and placing in the top 10 of her age group on the national level. Shea worked in finance for over a decade until she left...
