Meet our Instructors

Alexandra Cooke

Alexandra, born and raised in Atlanta, started practicing yoga after moving to Nashville in 2018. She was looking for ways to stay active and meet people in a new city and came across Cindy Lunsford’s Yogasoul Yoga Studio, where she began her yoga journey. With a background in competitive dance and running, Alexandra immediately noticed the physical and mental benefits of her newfound yoga practice.


Alexandra’s deep appreciation for yoga and the eagerness to learn more about its philosophy led her to complete her 200 hour teacher training through Yogasoul in February 2022. Since then, she continues to be both a student and teacher of yoga, deepening her personal practice while also guiding others along their yoga journey. She teaches her students that while showing up to your mat can be the hardest part, once you arrive you can continue to transform your yoga practice each and every day.  


Off the mat, you’ll find Alexandra reading, knitting, rock climbing, and spending time with her fiancé, Jonathan, and their two cats, Jack and Carl.

Alexandra Moga

Alexandra’s yoga journey began in her childhood, when during summer breaks in Romania she would meditate alongside her aunt who taught her practices in forgiveness, focused breathing, and energetic visualization. In her teens she took her first yoga asana class and was hooked–finding the practice perfectly suited her passion for movement and dedication to spirituality. After four years of art history studies in Paris, she returned to New York where she immersed herself in the yogic path with over 10 years of study and teaching various communities since 2010.

Dylan Thomas

Dylan is a movement enthusiast and recovering perfectionist who discovered yoga during college, taking occasional classes at the local climbing gym. For years she was a climber first, but eventually something clicked, and the yoga began to offer her a greater sense of physical and spiritual awareness that changed her approach to life and fully commanded her attention.


Drawn back to her mat more and more often, Dylan began teaching yoga in 2019 after earning her 200-hour RYT certification with Cindy Lunsford. Always a student first, she has since completed training intensives with Jason Crandell, Jimmy Barkan and Gillian St. Clair. Above all, she stays dedicated to her personal practice as a tool for getting back to center and perpetually reimagining what is possible.


Dylan teaches alignment-focused vinyasa yoga that lands at the intersection of strength and fluidity. Whether in a powerful, sweaty practice or a grounding slow flow, she offers clear, accessible cues and intuitive sequences, and holds space for students to practice with curiosity, possibility, and play.


Off the mat, Dylan is a software engineer and a Capricorn who loves calisthenics, reading, cooking, writing, live music, lifestyle design, and dancing in the kitchen with her cat, Iggy.

Kate Larson

Kate’s personal yoga practice began a decade ago in her home state of Arizona. 8 years ago she moved to Nashville and met yoga teachers who helped to intensify her practice through a newfound internal awareness and a deepening of her emotional, mental and body connection. This spiritual insight brought a desire to learn more and share more with her community. She completed her 200 hour RYT Vinyasa training through YogaSoul in 2021 and has taught at multiple Nashville studios since. Kate enjoys teaching many Vinyasa formats and aims to help people feel embodied, intentional and creative in their practice, 

Kate loves the union found in yoga, a union made complete not by forsaking our differences but by honoring them. 

Katherine Freeland

Katherine Freeland is a Bhakta, a Jivamukti Yoga Teacher, lifestyle photographer & communications artist.

She found Jivamukti Yoga in NYC in 2013, and dove heart-first into a journey of esoteric awakening that continues to this day. In her classes, Katherine offers authentic and playful insight on how to take the practices we learn on our mats into the real world. She is kind, humorous, and relatable as a teacher. Katherine feels deep gratitude to Jivamukti for introducing her to Kirtan and Krishna, bringing so much grace and joy to her life.

Katherine lives in Nashville and teaches Yoga to adults and children, in groups and privately with an emphasis on becoming fit, as her beloved teacher Sharon Gannon puts it, to be an instrument of the divine. She is a joyful kirtan singer. She takes students on for holistic yoga lifestyle coaching when she is available. She has worked as a dedicated guide for international Jivamukti Teacher Trainings since 2019. 

Katherine earned her BFA from Pratt Institute in Fine Art Photography in 2015. She was first certified in Vinyasa Yoga with the loving guidance of Christina Rufin in 2017, then in 2019 completed the very first 75HR Jivamutki Yoga Teacher Training in New York City with Rima Rabbath and Claudia Debs. She completed the 300HR JYTT in 2021 at Menla with her dear teachers Lady Ruth Lauer-Manenti and HaChi Yu, mentored by Monica Jaggi. She participated as an alumni in 2022 in Italy with Yogeswari and Moritz Ulrich.

She will travel to Mysore, India, in autumn 2023 for a Jivamukti Refinement Course in Meditation, Hands on assists, and chanting Yoga Sutra.

Lacey Snell

Lacey’s passion is to help yoga students find strength, stability, and balance within their unique bodies. Her journey has created an interest in learning different styles of yoga and incorporating aspects from various lineages into her practice. Through her teaching, she encourages students to use their practice to find peace, build physical strength and deepen their connection within themselves and to others in our community. She loves being out in nature surrounded by plants and sunshine.

Sabrina Cowden

Sabrina believes that a good yoga class can help make space in your life for laughter, joy, peace and power. Her husband, Roger, creates delight and sometimes frustration (insert crazy face emoji) as they share life’s adventures together. She’s been a resident of Nashville since 1988 and is mom to two great kids who are grown and flown (she and hubby are loving the empty nester life). Her other life love is her rescue dog, Alice Jo.

Shelby Baxter

Shelby was born and raised in Bristol, CT.  In 2013 she relocated to Nashville from several stopping points along the (mostly north) eastern coast.  She lives in 12 South with her blended family of six.  Yoga has been an integral part to her personal healing journey.  She began practicing in 2015 and quickly became interested in learning more.  Shelby completed her 200hr YTT in 2017 with Sanctuary for Yoga in Green Hills and began teaching shortly after completing her training.  In Shelby’s classes you’ll be guided through a strong and intentional physical practice with asana that moves slowly and is deconstructed so that you can understand what your body should be doing from the standpoint of alignment and where your body is meant to be headed in terms of preparation for peak posture.  She honors the lineage of yoga and teaches to all eight limbs of yoga using attention and intention cues, Pranyama, Mudra and Self inquiry.  She uses a “peak pose” approach to choreographing her flows and strives to make the practice feel like an invitation, beginning with curiosity, to learn more about what’s going on just below the surface.  Her energy is loving, real and playful while maintaining reverence to spiritual and physical safety.  Her belief is that yoga is a vehicle en route home to the Self and that journey will look unique for everyone who rolls out a mat.
