Karyna Kerin

Position:Owner
Experience:200 RYT, Spinning Certified, RealRyder Certified, SoundRide Trained
Biography:
My passion for fitness over the past decade has evolved from a yoga and cycling student, to a yoga and cycling instructor, and now studio owner. I completed my 200 hour teacher training in 2015 and am currently working towards my 500 hour training. I've trained with Spinning and RealRyder and I've been teaching both yoga and cycling since 2015. I believe in the connection, community, and confidence found in both a yoga practice and a consistent cycling routine. My passion stems from the need to share the benefits and magic of these disciplines with the world.

Before owning a studio, my professional background was primarily in the software industry. I graduated from Pitt with a bachelor’s in computer science. When the first Pittsburgh COVID shutdown happened, I combined her decade of software experience and my passionate teaching career to launch our virtual program.

Preena Patel

Position:Yoga Instructor
Experience:200 RYT, SoundRide Trained
Biography:
I have been practicing the asanam (poses) of yoga since I was eight years old, when I would do surya namaskars outside on Sunday mornings. But it was not until ten years later that I connected breath to movement and built mental strength through my yoga practice. Throughout my undergraduate years at the University of Pittsburgh, yoga was there during loneliness, heartbreak, depression, restlessness, and panic. Yoga was also there for me during times of love, friendship, freedom, and play. In searching for safety, security, and stability in my life, I cultivated all of those within myself through my yoga practice. I reunited with my body, my breath, and my mind. I learned to trust myself and reconnected with a culture that I had so often shunned while growing up. Yoga gave me the space to accept myself as I am. I accepted myself as a modern woman, strong enough to be independent in this world but also welcoming to change and compassion from others. Through my teachings and daily actions, I know that no matter what happens, I will have yoga.
