Hi, my name is Asia and I’m a certified Yoga Instructor, Personal Trainer and Group Fitness Instructor. Fitness has always been apart of my life but it really became a priority postpartum. I not only enjoyed reaching my personal goals but became obsessed with encouraging others to do the same! Witnessing the growth and development of others warms my heart like no other. I like to think the universe brought me to Soul Revolution exactly when I needed it most. After winning a giveaway and coming in for my first yoga class, I knew this was a place I would return to many a time. Fast forward to today, I am so excited to be leading a Hot Pilates class on Wednesday mornings, as well as having completed my 200-hour yoga teacher training program with Soul Revolution. I hope to help you find your next best self on the mat little by little.

Maggie’s interest and passion for fitness kicked off in 2015, when she moved to New York City and started visiting fitness studios/gyms as a way to build community, keep a healthy lifestyle, and get to know new neighborhoods. Through cycling, yoga, running and HIIT classes, Maggie found her passion for cycling stood out among the rest. In 2017, she completed her first cycling certification and began teaching at a boutique studio in Astoria, Queens for 3 years.
After big life changes brought her to Dubuque, IA, Maggie keeps cycling and fitness in her life- She loves to create fun and uplifting classes that keep you smiling while working hard!

Throughout my adult life I have always been drawn to the practice of yoga. I love the fluidity of a beautifully sequenced vinyasa class and how when paired with the breath, the practice feels like dancing.
I started attending yoga class in college as a way to increase my flexibility because as a collegiate dancer, I didn’t have the flexibility and extension that I felt like I needed. Fast forward a few years and I still found myself leaning toward yoga as a way to balance out my physical lifestyle as a fitness professional. I pursued my 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training certificate in 2014 as a way to deepen my knowledge of the practice and have the ability to teach classes, but I walked away from my first yoga teacher training with so much more than pose sequencing. I learned authenticity, abundance, and friendship at a pivotal time when I had also become a new mother. The entire experience was beautiful and impactful. And yet, I didn’t hold on tightly to my yoga practice and overtime I was rarely on my mat and generally consumed by the patterns of motherhood and daily life. But like so many people, in 2020 my daily life dramatically changed because of the covid pandemic and after suffering and recovering from a tightness induced running injury, the yoga practice was once again drawing me back in. However, this time was different because I was different.
For me, yoga has become the perfect ritual. I come to my mat everyday because the practice grounds me and has changed me both mentally and physically. I am so grateful to have the opportunity to share the practice of yoga that continues to fill me up with gratitude and challenge my ego. I hope my classes inspire a love of the ritual with a curiosity for the possible.
Outside of teaching yoga class, I work with Challenge to Change as a yoga in the school’s educator and studio ambassador. I spend most of my time with my husband and two sons chasing little adventures and pursuing many different interests.
Yoga made an impact on Krista the first time she stepped onto her mat. The connection she felt with her mind and body kept her coming back and helped her begin a daily practice. Krista became a yoga instructor in 2018 and has enjoyed helping others find similar benefits in their own practice. Krista enjoys using breath to guide movement in flow style classes to help find that inner connection and presence while cultivating energy throughout the body.
Katie began practicing hot yoga in 2017 as a way to challenge and connect with her body. Her love of the mental, physical, and emotional benefits of the practice led her to pursue her RYT-200 certification in 2020, and her Yin instructor training in 2022. Katie’s classes seek to develop the mind/body connection through intentional, meditative, and fulfilling breath-to-movement. She offers a variety of classes, from gentle and restorative Slow Flow and Yin, to energizing and fun power flows. When she’s not on her mat, you can find Katie taking walks with her dog & partner, cooking, reading, or working in her garden.
I’m currently a student at the University of Iowa, however, I started practicing yoga my freshman year of high school. Immediately I fell in love with the physical and spiritual practice. Throughout high school, my yoga mat became my “safe place.” I decided I wanted to get my yoga certification during the pandemic. In 2021, I received my 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training Certification at Hothouse Yoga Studio. Throughout my journey of being a committed yogi, I have learned there is nothing more beautiful than your authentic truth. . I am excited to not only be a student, but a teacher at Soul Revolution!

Ashley began her yoga practice in Iowa City while attending the University of Iowa. It was a few years after her dad had passed, and she was quickly hooked to the classes. She noticed her body relaxing and her mind quieting. Through a local studio she found a consistent practice, a group of like-minded people, and a community turned family. It was exactly what she needed. She enrolled in Hot House Yoga’s 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training – with the idea in mind that maybe, someday, she could open her own studio and offer to others what this place had given her.
Ashley’s true passion was rooted in yoga but also recognized many yoga practitioners desire for a cardio aspect in their practice. Adding cycling seemed like the perfect addition and the two complement one another so well.
After years of dreaming, months of planning and the encouragement of her husband Ricky, Soul Revolution Yoga + Cycling became a reality and opened its doors in December 2018.
Ashley is a registered and certified Yoga Teacher and Indoor Cycling Instructor. When not at the studio, she is soaking up snuggles with her 2 daughters, Autumn + Aubrey, son Hunter, and husband Ricky. They enjoy any outdoor activity, cheering on their favorite sports teams and spending time with family and friends.

I have been teaching yoga, pilates and an array of other fitness classes for over 10 years now! My family started their own gym when I was finishing up college and then I came back to help them run it. I had never intended to start teaching but I started with my personal training license and then it grew from there. Fun fact is that I used to HATE yoga back in high school and college but once I found classes I actually liked, I fell in love with it! I got my Yoga Up certification in Madison first and then about a year later did my 200-hour training in Washington DC and then a Pilates training! Teaching may have been something I didn’t intend to do but I just love it and could never give it up – I actually did it throughout my entire pregnancy (up until about 2 weeks prior) and taking off the 6 weeks after seemed so long and I couldn’t wait to start back up! I always encourage people to take a class even if they think they might hate it because you never know until you try (just look at me 10 years later teaching something I used to hate!).
