Brent Rieli

Brent Rieli has been practicing Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga since the mid 1990’s, enjoying the rewards and benefits offered from an intense practice. Wanting to delve further into the discipline of Yoga and become a teacher, Brent waited until his practice became deeply rooted to build a strong foundation from which to teach. In January 2009 Brent and his wife Sheri founded the Plymouth Yoga Room where they have continued to deepen their practice and help entice an inner peace to all that choose to look for it. Brent and Sheri have also helped to cultivate incredible teachers through their Yoga Immersion Program in an effort to increase the awareness of yoga throughout the community.

Julie Silberg

In 2005, tired of my aerobic fitness routine, I was seeking something new. At a friend’s suggestion, I tried yoga. Although it took some time to develop the mind/body connection, I was pretty quickly hooked. Shortly thereafter and with my youngest of four children at home, I learned of a new studio opening-- a studio with great teachers and (a novel concept at the time) childcare. I began practicing at the Plymouth Yoga Room and have maintained a steady practice there since. The rewards I’ve reaped are plentiful: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Yoga has filled a void in my life that I didn’t realize existed. In my busy world of children, schedules, school, sports, and activities, yoga is my refuge for peace and serenity. Some days I come to PYR just to breathe.
In the spring of 2014 I fulfilled my long held aspiration of completing teacher training. I understand that the wealth of knowledge and information I learned was just the tip of the iceberg. Yoga for me is a living, growing practice, with something new to discover each time I come to my mat. I am thrilled to now share my love and passion with my students. I teach from my practice and seek to challenge, inspire and motivate my students while always encouraging them to focus on their breath, remain present in the moment, and feel all there is to feel.

Nicole Yoder

Nicole Yoder has been part of the Plymouth and Northville Yoga Rooms since 2015. She’s been teaching various forms of fitness since she was
18, her first aerobics class being when she was in 3rd grade after school with her mom and a bunch of other teachers. She received her yoga certification in 2006 and began teaching, having come to the realization that through her yoga practice and teachings,
she could actually live the life she’s always wanted - and that’s what she works toward each and everyday.
Nicole once worked in automotive, has managed various fitness
studios, planned and executed big events, yada, yada and has a pretty strong resume, but her best work is her family, the day-to-day, her time dedicated to yoga, and the surroundings she keeps. Having renewed and updated her certification in 2017, Nicole continues
to help others deepen their practice. Nicole's teachings are guided by her desire to share with others, easy, relatable ways to look at ups, downs, challenges, and life in general through their time on their mat. She has a life-long dedication and ability to connect with others through her experiences and situations in a way that incorporates humor, love, laughter, intention and breath. Married with a little girl and 2 dogs, Nicole and her family live in Northville, Michigan.

Polly Swingle

I began practicing yoga in 2001 after my second back surgery. Following surgery my doctor sent me to physical therapy for rehabilitation. As a physical therapist myself, I became quickly frustrated due to my slow progress and the continued back pain. I was craving exercise that would strengthen and lengthen my muscles, align my spine, and ease my internal stress. I wandered into a yoga class and struggled with every pose. After one month I was practicing almost daily and incorporated the yoga philosophy into my private and professional life. In the fall of 2014 I completed the PYR Immersion program which deepened my practice of yoga and awakened my interest in sharing my knowledge of yoga with my patients at The Recovery Project as well as students at PYR. As a business owner myself, I have a deep appreciation of the atmosphere, students, staff and ownership at PYR. I am honored to have the opportunity to share my love of yoga with you. Namaste, Polly.

Jen Brown

My yoga journey began as a compliment to being a collegiate volleyball player. I quickly found the benefits of being on my mat after strength and conditioning sessions, running and playing/practicing six days a week. As my life progressed and I eventually became a mom of two boys, I started my home practice. Still craving more, I decided to become a certified RYT in 2013. Since then, yoga has become an integral part of my life – bringing awareness and balance to my life. I specifically love yoga because there is no end sight, everything is perceived as moving in a direction. I encourage you to embrace the ebb and flow of life and be a source of lightness for yourself and those around you. Namaste, Jen.

Jennifer Werner

I have been practicing yoga since 2002 when I was introduced to it at the fitness center where I was attending classes. I loved it so much I decided to go through Teacher Training in 2003 and then again in 2005. Both experiences were wonderful as I learned so much more about my own practice and of course how to share it with others. As a teacher, it is important to me that my students feel comfortable, connected, challenged and most importantly able to rest their minds. That time on your mat is so precious and every moment you are able to let go of your thoughts is time well spent! I have been teaching since the summer of 2007 and have been with the Plymouth Yoga Room since it opened in January of 2009. I've practiced and taught yoga at several other studios before coming to PYR, but have decided this is where I feel the most connected to both the staff and the students. Plymouth Yoga Room is a warm, inviting, comfortable place. If you just walk in the door you'll know what I am talking about!  I hope to see and meet you soon.   Jen

Sheri Rieli

I began practicing yoga from a fitness background, alternating between fitness routines and yoga classes.  Eventually my body started craving yoga, and I found myself wanting to practice on a daily basis.  I immediately began to notice the benefits of a consistent yoga practice both on and off my mat that brought a sense of peace and balance to my personal life.  Yoga has created a passion within me to share all the beautiful benefits of a steady yoga practice with others.  When I started teaching yoga I quickly had the desire to teach in an environment with structure and consistency so that I could watch the students grow within their own practice, allowing them to see & feel the many benefits as well. In 2009 I, along with my husband Brent Rieli, opened the Plymouth Yoga Room. Together we have created a place from which to share our passion and love for yoga.  We help others deepen their practice by offering daily classes, yoga workshops, kids yoga classes, and our Yoga Immersion program.
A dynamic series of sequenced postures that flow together designed to build great internal heat in order to purify the body with physically demanding postures done at the measure of your own breath.
