HALIE MONTANEZ

RYT 200 // Barre Instructor // Spin Instructor

Halie is a lively and happy person who loves to share her love of barre, yoga and spin! She brings that same happiness and liveliness to every class she teaches.

 

She received her 200RYT in 2012 and since has added 500 hours of teaching and continuing education/ training. In 2017 she came across barre and instantly fell in love with it. She received her training that year and has been teaching ever since. This year she has added Spin into her teaching and is excited to share this new found love with every client.

ELISE LONG

RYT 200 // Barre Instructor

Certified SPINNING Instructor

 

Whether she has you turning up the tension on the bike in an 8-point plank on your yoga mat, when Elise speaks, you listen. Her classes are one of a kind and her soul is just as special.

Elise was born and raised here in the Valley. When she's not teaching yoga or cycling you can find her working at her family's store, or chasing her little ninja son or fur babies around outside!

BRIENA MUGRIDGE

RYT 200 and Certified SPINNING Instructor

Briena is our newest spin instructor here at Innergy and a recent grad of Innergy's first Yoga Teacher Training. This super fun, caring girl was raised here in Wasilla and was actually Jordan's across the street neighbor for most of their childhood.

Briena spends as much of her time as possible in classes or personal training at Innergy and is proud to be encouraging others to find the same confidence she found through a consistent movement practice.

She's kind of a big deal...when she's not in the studio or on a bike she's probably spending time with her dog Wallace and boyfriend Cole or being a total rockstar as the Technical Supervisor for CellNetix Pathology and Laboratories. This girl does it all.

THERESA HODGSON

RYT 200

Theresa started her yoga journey following knee surgery and years of practice motivated her to get her 200 hour Hatha yoga teaching certification from Yoga Yoga in Austin, Texas, her hometown.

Theresa moved to the mountains in 2012 and has been loving Alaska ever since. In addition to yoga, she enjoys everything outdoors. Theresa is also a licensed Physical Therapist Assistant and loves working with people of all ages and abilities, especially kids. 

JAMIE CRIPPS

RYT 200 // Barre Instructor

Certified SPINNING Instructor

Jamie has been teaching barre since the fall of 2013. She was originally trained and teaching in Bellingham, WA but has been teaching in Alaska since 2016. She was born and raised in the Valley and recently moved back within minutes of her childhood home with her husband and two young boys. She loves the opportunity she has to stay home with her kids and also loves pouring her heart (and sweat!) into her clients when she teaches and finds great satisfaction in both roles.

 

Jamie is barre obsessed and it shines so strong in her passion for teaching, you cannot not smile when this girl is leading a class. She loves encouraging each person to “make the moves your own." Whether someone needs to modify a movement or needs more of a challenge, the option to choose restore or fullest effort or anything in between.

 

When Jamie isn’t mommying or teaching, she’s likely with her friends or family, preferably playing games or outside with good food and smelling with some sort of combo of fire and essential oils.
