Sunrise Yoga on the Canal

This class is taught by:

Yvonne Rodriguez

Yvonne’s journey began in 2005 when a friend insisted she attend a Yoga class with her. From that first experience on the mat, her passion for Yoga was born. Since then, she has been drawn towards both the spiritual and physical components of yoga and the constant challenges that it provides her. Yvonne completed her first training in 2009 with Christina Sell. Relocating to Indianapolis from Texas, Yvonne utilized the lessons learned on her mat to aid in her transition to this beautiful city where she completed her second 200 hr training under Eric Bryant and Ahna Hoke. Yoga has become a fundamental way of life for her, allowing an outlet to cope with one's daily struggles. Yvonne believes that anyone can benefit from practicing yoga whether it be to heal a physical ailment or provide guidance for one’s life toward a positive transformation and enlightenment. Her style cultivates a playful environment where movement with breath and the yoking of body, mind, and spirit are encouraged.

Danielle Vetter

Danielle started practicing yoga to compliment distance running in 2009. She loved the peace, stillness, and whole-body relaxation yoga brought. Danielle completed her 200 Hour Yoga Training in Indianapolis in January of 2015. Her classes are upbeat, athletic, and connect breath work with a strong physical practice. She hopes her classes will offer students a chance to find strength, a deeper understanding of their bodies, and balance and peace in their lives.

Off the mat, you can find Danielle hiking, boxing, or rocking out to a concert at White River State Park. Danielle holds a BS and MPA from Indiana University (Go Hoosiers).

Andrea Mehringer

Andrea found yoga when she was going through a lifestyle change in 2010. She wanted to change the way she felt and looked at life, what she ate and the foods she was feeding her family, become more active with exercise, and be mindful of her choices she was making. She was doing all sorts of different exercises at the time and yoga was one of them. She found that she kept craving and coming back to her mat. She wanted to keep coming back to a place where she could connect with her mind, body, and soul through breathing and connecting the breath with asana. Vinyasa yoga quickly became her go to and after about 2 years practicing at her home she went to Invoke Yoga and Pilates Studio for her first studio class. She was immediately hooked, even more than she was before! Andrea's faith was building right a long with her practice and she knew that she was uncovering this calling that was deep from within and she couldn't ignore it. Andrea applied for the RYS-200-hour teacher training program through Invoke Yoga and Pilates Studio in March 2015 and has graduated in August 2015. She is very excited to share this burning passion of hers to help others become comfortable and have gratitude for their bodies, have love and compassion for themselves and others, find peace and happiness throughout their life, and to connect with their breath which unfolds many endless opportunities.

Brooke Lutgring

Brooke began practicing yoga three years ago in search of adding variety to her exercise routine. She graduated from IU with a degree in Health Fitness Specialty, but was hesitant to try yoga because she was unsure if she could calm her busy mind for an entire hour. Brooke instantly fell in love with the practice. Shortly after, she signed up for teacher training at Invoke Yoga Studio in the fall of 2015. Her goal for each class is to create a fun, high energy environment that leaves each person feeling empowered and confident in themselves. Outside of Invoke, Brooke works as an Electrophysiologist Device Technician at Indiana Heart Physicians. Becoming a yoga teacher has brought her much happiness and solidifies her passion to help others and encourage their wellbeing. Join her in class to see what she can offer you!
