Melissa Martin, R-YFT, RYT

Melissa is a wife and mom to three boys. When she is not cheering on her boys at football, soccer, golf or cross country she can be found on her yoga mat. Melissa began practicing yoga over ten years ago. She was introduced to the concept of faith-based yoga at her church in Atlanta. She quickly fell in love with the practice because of the many physical, mental and spiritual benefits that yoga provides. Upon moving to a small town in 2012, Melissa realized that while there were many local options for practicing yoga, none were faith-based. In 2015, after a difficult year that included the death of her father, her mother-in-law’s lung cancer diagnosis and the discovery that her youngest son had permanent hearing loss, Melissa was encouraged by a counselor to make yoga a daily part of her life. It was on the yoga mat that she felt that God was calling her to bring faith-based yoga to Madison, Georgia. She currently teaches four YogaFaith classes each week as well as Mom and Me.  

Kelly McLellan, R-YFT, E-RYT

Kelly began the path of yoga almost 25 years ago while attending the University of Florida where she received her Bachelors degree in Psychology and her Masters degree in Health Science Education, specializing in holistic health. She has been teaching health and wellness for over 20 years. She is a YogaFaith ambassador and a faculty member at Montreat College where she teaches classes that blend the ancient practice of classical yoga with sacred Christian scriptures. She is a lover of God and follower of Jesus- studying His life and teachings and learning to live and love with His heart.

Kelly firmly believes in the power of yoga as a tool for integrating the person as a whole: body, mind and spirit. She understands yoga to be a spiritual discipline, using the practice to “still the turnings of the mind” in order to rest in the sovereignty and perfect love of God.

Kelly lives Black Mountain, NC with her husband and their two children. When she is not on her mat, you can find her hanging out with friends and family, homeschooling her teens, gardening, making jewelry and other art, playing with her dog or reading and contemplating life’s deepest questions.

Hollie Lytle, R-YFT

Hollie Lytle | Atlanta, GA
200 R-YFT, RYT
Finishing a competitive swimming career after college, Hollie originally sought yoga for an exciting new challenge yet quiet refuge in a noisy life. Once diagnosed with an almost 60-degree curve in her spine, the practice took on a whole new meaning. Practicing yoga keeps her out of traditional office physical therapy and has given healing to her bones! She began practicing more than ten years ago and is trained in both Hatha and Ashtanga.

Hollie has found Yoga faith to be such a blessing in connecting the mind, body, and soul to Jesus, deepening relationship with God and opening new doors for praise and worship. Her intentions are to serve and guide students/warriors into a new-found expression of confidence and strength all while in the presence of the Holy Spirit.

”For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.” Matthew 18:20

Currently living in the North Georgia mountains with her family, she is the owner of Lytlefoto, a photography studio that was established in 2006. She believes that our testimony is warfare against darkness and is passionate about the sharing of story through images. 

Dana Raynard, R-YFT

Dana Raynard recently opened a yoga and wellness studio in her hometown of Harrisonville, MO. Real Yoga Health and Wellness began as a dream in October of 2015 while completing her 200 hr YogaFaith training in Seattle. With her high school sweetheart and three wild and wonderful sons by her side, she is able to bring real people to the mat. Keeping it Real – Real Yoga!

Victoria Nolen, R-YFT, TSYF

Victoria is a yoga instructor, Trauma-Sensitive Yoga Faith instructor, and a psychotherapist. Fascinated by yoga as a child, Victoria fulfilled her dream late in college and has practiced yoga since 2012. Yoga has served as the greatest tool in her own physical, spiritual, and emotional healing journey. Her passion is to, as her own counselor has said, give away what she have been given. Always the adventurer and seeker, she discovered her greatest passion when she found Yoga Faith and the tremendous gift of praising, thanking, and surrendering to Jesus through movement.
Victoria’s love for teaching yoga stems from the joy of creating a safe, sacred, and relaxing space where people of all ages and backgrounds can come to move, breathe, connect, and belong. Along with yoga, she finds great delight in dancing, daffodils, the magic of fall, and gatherings of loved ones around coffee or a campfire.

Victoria currently teaches in Clarkesville, GA and lives in the mountain foothills of Toccoa, GA with her husband. 

Toure`, R-YFT, RYT

Toure` is a 15-year student of yoga and a certified Yoga Faith 200-hour instructor. Currently studying the 300-hour Yoga Faith curriculum, she is the founder of Southwest Atlanta Yoga, a studio located in the historic district of Atlanta Georgia. While deepening her studies, she discovered that yoga is a live entity, which will find you and guide one to a place to make change and bring balance into one’s life. Surrendering to the power of yoga allowed her to live more confidently. Assuring her, that the gift to share and expose yoga to a community where many residents have been practicing in the shadows, even in a bustling metropolis, can be accomplished with the unwavering strength and reach of our Lord, Jesus Christ.

Toure` is the mother of a 15-year-old son, has a career in Oncology Informatics, enjoys her two dogs, live music and reading. Toure` believes the power of the breath is that of the Holy Spirit and is The Source of transformation.
