Juliet Hewitt

Juliet is a E-RYT 500 Yoga teacher, YACEP, and a certified personal trainer.  Juliet’s path to yoga started in 2000 when after 10 years of teaching group fitness, her Columbia YMCA supervisor convinced her to take a weekend teacher training program. That weekend training program sparked her passion to learn more about yoga and share what she had learned with others. Since then, Juliet has had the great fortune to study with many amazing teachers. She completed a teacher certification program with Holy Cow Yoga in 2003 and with Carolina Yoga in 2009. She held an Anusara-Inspired certification from 2007 until April 2012. In 2016, she studied with Jill Miller, and became a certified Yoga Tune Up® teacher learning how to add therapy balls and corrective exercises into her yoga classes. She has also studied yoga as therapy extensively with Doug Keller and yoga for scoliosis with Elise Browning Miller.

Juliet teaches an alignment-based yoga practice with an emphasis on taking the body through a full range of motion eliminating pain, strengthening musculature around the joints, and down-regulating the nervous system. Her goal as a teacher is to create a fun, safe environment for you to explore connecting your body and mind.

I began my yoga practice in 2007 when a coworker told me yoga helped her back pain. After attending one class, I realized that yoga was more than just a body in motion - it became a lifestyle for me. I retired from a 35+ year career as an RN in June 2015. My interest in meditation led me to become a certified Primordial Sound Meditation instructor from The Chopra Center in October 2014. I completed Rasika yoga teacher training in November 2015 and have been teaching ever since. I continue taking workshops and attend retreats yearly.

Missy LeAna Jones

I started practicing yoga in 2014.  I received my 230 hour Certification in July 2018 from Asheville Yoga Center, and my RYT 200 from the Yoga Alliance in August 2018.  I received my 500-hour Certification in August 2020 from Asheville Yoga Center. I opened my yoga studio, Inscape Yoga, in November 2019.  I closed the brick-and-mortar building for Inscape Yoga in July 2022 to pursue getting my Yoga Therapy Certification.  I am currently enrolled at My Vinyasa Practice for my Yoga Therapy Certification.  I hope to have this completed by March 2024.

After working for decades, first as a waitress, various desk jobs and night school, eventually progressing to a paralegal degree / career, I found myself tired, burned out, and frustrated.   Yoga became my safety net, my bliss.  As my practice continued, it became my passion.  I felt driven to learn more, do more, give more back.


With the loving support and encouragement of my husband, family members, and countless friends and mentors in and out of the yoga community, I decided to take my shot, turn in my notice at work, and pack up my cubicle.  So many people to thank, so little space.  You know who you are - Thank You!


My yoga journey has been both brutal and beautiful…Brutiful.  To leave a state job, with decent pay and good benefits, that I had served in for over 10 years, and start over from scratch, was both terrifying and exhilarating.  It still is.  


Dana Lodwick

One day I walked into a yoga studio, and everything in my life changed. 

I became a yoga instructor to help others find their way to peace within their own bodies.  Learning to accept and recognize strengths and limitations is one of the beautiful gifts that yoga teaches us.  

I woke up one day, and I was paralyzed from the neck down.  I had back surgery, and proceeded to have nerve damage on the right side of my body.  I used yoga as a tool to get my life back.  Today, I have my 200 RYT in Vinyasa, Hatha, and Yin by way of Tymi Howard and Steve Ross through Guruv Yoga in Lake Mary, FL.  My 300 RYT consisted of Iyengar training and Meditation through the Association of Yoga and Meditation in Rishikesh, India.


I believe we learn by helping others and diligently continuing one’s education.  I am halfway done with my training to become a Yoga Therapist – I have studied at Maryland University of Integrated Health and Yoga Triad Institute. 

Taylor Woltmann

Taylor Woltmann was born and raised on Long Island, NY. She recently moved to South Carolina about three years ago to attend UofSC. Her focus and interest has always been holistic medicine and practices. She has been practicing yoga for about eight years now, and has more recently found reiki. Incorporating breath, movement, and spiritual healing into her yoga practices is very important. Her main goal is for her students to maintain a mind, body, and soul connection.
