This class is taught by:

Tess Belden

Tess fell in love with Yoga when she attended IU Bloomington and found Vibe Yoga. The studio became her sanctuary where she could go to practice patience and relieve stress. She received her 100-Hour Intensive teacher certification at Vibe with Kai Trinh of CorePower Yoga in 2009, and her 200-Hour certification through Invoke’s Yoga Alliance Approved YTT in 2012. She also trained with Sonje Mayo and received her Peak Pilates certification in September 2013. Tess brings a lighthearted approach to her teaching and believes that everyone can benefit from the complementary practices of yoga and pilates.

Cheryl Milton

Cheryl began her Yoga practice in 2001, after the birth of her first child Addison. At the time yoga was introduced to Cheryl she had just left a high-paced sales job to become a full time mom and was entering her seventh year teaching group fitness. Cheryl received her yoga training in Coastal Virginia. She trained with a focus in the tradition of the Hot Yoga Series and Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. Cheryl was the Director and Lead Teacher for the 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training program for Zen Hot Yoga Studio Virginia Beach, as well as the Founder and Lead Teacher for Passion Yoga School’s 2014 Yoga Teacher Training Program. She now leads Invoke's Yoga Alliance Certified 100 & 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training Program at Invoke Wellness Center. Cheryl draws inspiration to teach and practice from her busy daily life: approaching her mat being open to explore, accept, reaffirm her passion for life and cultivate peace. 

Ashley Dirks

Ashley grew up as a competitive swimmer and playing every sport available at the time, but her love for fitness began in high school when a friend’s mom took her to her first step aerobics class! After graduating from IU, getting married and moving away Ashley was disappointed with the quality of group fitness offered in her area, so she decided to turn her love of fitness into instructing. Ashley discovered Yoga 17 years ago while stationed at Ft Leonard Wood, Missouri with her husband. After her first class something resonated. The focus on breath and movement, and the mental and physical strength it took to consciously slow down and calm the mind was hard for her, but she was fascinated. She knew it was something she wanted to incorporate into her life. As an Army wife, dealing with moves and constant deployments, Ashley always found peace and comfort on her mat and she began to deeply appreciate the calming effects of being able to slow down and connect back to the self.

In 2010, after 2 children, and countless moves Ashley and her husband knew it was time to come home to Indianapolis and be closer to family. After trying many different studios and developing a regular home practice Ashley decided to take the next step and received her 200 hour teacher training in 2017 at Invoke Studio with Cheryl Milton. She received her Prenatal Yoga certification in the summer of 2017.

Ashley is very active volunteer with her kiddos school and also coaches girls kickball and both boys and girls volleyball.
