RYT 200 // Founder
Born and raised in Rockford, Illinois, Ally Troia began her yoga practice during her time at the University of Missouri. Ally earned her 200 hour yoga certification in July 2016 in Costa Rica through Yoga on High (Columbus, Ohio).
In February 2017, Ally founded 815Yoga, LLC, in hopes of growing and strengthening the yoga community in Rockford. She teaches a variety of yoga classes for all levels in the Rockford area and especially loves brand new beginners!
Jim joined the 815Yoga team in the fall of 2017 as a substitute yoga teacher while he acquired his 200 hour training at Moksha in Chicago, and, in January 2018, he made his debut on the regular weekly schedule! Jim now teaches several times each week, and, when he's not teaching, he finds his way back to the studio to be the student! Jim has a warm and grounding presence in a [sometimes crazy] studio full of women, and his classes are a true pleasure. His style is rooted in tradition, guiding his students to simplicity and peace.
Kayleigh is our newest team member! She received her certification through Yoga Six Milwaukee in the fall of 2017. Her classes demonstrate her fresh knowledge and wholehearted desire to share the magic of yoga with her students. Join Kayleigh for a fast-paced dynamic flow class!
Jessie is our superhero yoga sub! She never fails to save the day when we need her most! Her classes shine with love and sweetness. When you see her name on the schedule, you know you're in for a treat!
