I completed a 200 hour YTT in January of this year at Transcend Yoga LLC. My teaching style is Hatha Yoga with an emphasis on core strength and flexibility. In my free time I enjoy backpacking, and running.

April Bosworth

Her classes flow and move exploring the movement of Prana (the essential life force). She offers joyful movements to find strength, flexibility, and balance in body and mind. Her classes dance to the rhythm of the breath and the seasons.

April teaches multi-level classes offering a variety of asana (posture) options and encourages students to follow their own innate wisdom to find the right variation. Students describe April’s classes as inclusive, accessible, and authentic.

Whitney Mecham

Whitney Mecham
Whitney began practicing yoga 10 years ago but didn’t begin to deepen her practice until she discovered classes at the Krishna Temple while living in Salt Lake City. She became much more interested in Eastern philosophies which led her to complete her 200 hour teacher training certification at Yoga Vidya Gurukul ashram in Nashik, India. While there she expanded her knowledge of yoga by studying traditional hatha and ashtanga yoga and completely immersing herself in the full Indian ashram lifestyle. In her professional life she owns a textile import business that has allowed her to travel extensively through Asia, South America and Africa. Wherever she is in the world she tries to participate in yoga classes to help deepen her personal practice and expand her understanding beyond western yoga philosophy. She is excited to bring her traditional Indian training to students in the valley to help broaden their yogic experience.

Jessica Valle

Jessica Valle
I am 22 years young! I have been practicing yoga for 4 years and I completely fell in love with it. I took my first studio class in 2015 and I was hooked! I decided to get certified to teach this year at Transcend Yoga. It was the BEST decision ever. I have loved every minute teaching this far and I can't wait for all that is to come. I mainly focus on alignment and the anatomy of each asana. Aside from yoga I work at Cache Employment and Training Center. I volunteer with CASA here in the valley and...... I'm a cat lady!

Unless some one like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not - The Lorax

Kinille started yoga because she was looking for a new way to exercise. She stayed because Kinille fell in love with the physical work out, spiritual renewal, yoga mentality, and the way of life. Yoga has changed her outlook on life, and she believes with a desire to change and a commitment to spending time on the mat, that change can happen for anyone. Kinille obtained her Teaching Certification through Shanti Yoga Roots in Logan Utah, in September of 2017. She is practiced in various types of yoga, but loves hot classes with some core work added in. Kinille is a lover of quotes and resides in Logan Utah with her Husband. In her spare time she can be found doing the activities she loves; including baking, kayaking, spending time outdoors in her hammock, and enjoying a good book.
