Mei-Ling Chow-Mintenko

Mei-Ling has spent the last two decades on her mat and teaching about her passion for practice.  As a Core Strength Vinyasa trained teacher she is inspired by holistic movement, integration, adaptability, functional anatomy, breath centered and sustainable practices.  Her classes are led with strength and grace and she believes that this grace comes from "Our ability to be soft and strong in all the right places."  Mei-Ling teaches private sessions, signature workshops and The Light's exclusive 200 hr Fundamentals Teacher Training program.

Jessie Reid


Jessie offers over 18 years of experience in leading yoga classes that are devoted to creating an environment of personal transformation both on and off your mat.  This is done through intention setting, building awareness, moving meditation, conscience breath, and deep inner listening.


Jessie’s unique lyrical style of teaching will allow you to slow down, breathe deeply and move through creative and artful yoga classes that will ultimately lead to deep release of tension in mind and body.


Her fun loving and no pressure approach to the traditional teachings of Vinyasa Flow yoga as well as meditation and restorative postures open up the deeper healing aspects of these practices in an accessible and relevant way.

“Yoga is a beautiful form of art expressed through body and breath.”

Cindy Devine

Cindy has been a herbalist and natural health practitioner for 25 years.  She has always believed that the body, mind, and emotions are closely linked. Since 2010, this led her to teach gentle yoga, and then multiple forms of Qi gong including Korean, medical, and women's Qi gong.

Constantly learning and expanding her practice, Cindy has taught students of all age ranges and conditions. Including children, mentally and physically challenged youth, adults, and the elderly.  "All ages and abilities are open to healing and stress reduction through this practice, with the youngest student being 4 and the eldest, 96".

The practice of Qi gong keeps Cindy centered and balanced through  stressful life events and she looks forward to teaching and passing along the benefits to you.

Sherry Matwe

Certified in 2010, yoga has been there for Sherry in so many capacities.  It's a lifestyle and Sherry teaches to be a part of it and to give back.  Always seeking and continuing to honor her teachers by practicing, learning and sharing an approachable practice.  Yoga is her past and future.  "It's with me all day, everyday.  I learn and share and nothing more and nothing less.  Yoga is a paradox, the gift you have to give away."

Sue Utley

Sue is a former EAL (English as an Additional Language) teacher, Yoga Instructor, Flexibility Coach and Certified Emotion Code Practitioner. She continues to partake in her passion for teaching. She now shares the benefits of movement, breath work, emotional clearing and yoga with her students.


She creates a safe, non-judgemental, all-inclusive space that allows all people the opportunity to move, feel, learn, grow and heal. "Movement can make living in our bodies feel like a safe exploration". Her wish for her students is that they may find something that empowers them from within.

Lindsey Konecsni

For Lindsey, Yoga became a pathway of discovery that involved far more than just the physical practice. This led her on a journey to the Himalayas to study Ashtanga Yoga which provided such profound emotional and spiritual healing.

“I know from my own experience and fellow students, that regular daily practice leads to real lasting peace. It is a path through your own consciousness.  A practice that began with the sages of India and culminates in the millions of people who practice yoga today."

Nicole Gadd

Nicole became a certified yoga instructor in 2021. Immersed in the anatomy and theory, she developed a strong desire to share yoga with others as well as deepen her own practice.  Nicole continued her education to complete Trauma Informed Yoga and Prenatal Yoga Certification .


Teaching is something she truly loves. In her class she holds space for students to connect and strengthen the mind/body connection through breath and self discovery. 


“I believe yoga can heal your soul, mind and body.”
