Melony Bergeron

Melony Bergeron is an Accountant and CPA with many years of business experience. Her yoga journey began 7 years ago after the birth of her third child. The stress and anxiety involved in trying to balance her professional and personal life with three children felt overwhelming. She decided to try yoga for the first time and this class made her so aware of what she was missing in her workouts! Exercises that she had been doing at the gym were bringing more tension into her muscles while increasing her heart rate. What yoga taught her was how to slow down and focus internally while challenging her body and increasing flexibility. Yoga has become an integral part of her everyday life and she can feel the benefits from this training every day!

Melony decided to combine her love for yoga with her knowledge of business by opening this studio in The Woodlands, Texas.

Amy’s journey with Yoga, Qigong and Tai Chi began after years of running and hardcore exercise had taken a toll on her body. As a mother to five wonderful children for the past 24 years she exercised as a way to relieve stress and provide an outlet for herself. Eventually the physical pain of strenuous exercise was too much to handle. Personally her life had become a rocky road of ups and downs until she was introduced to the practices of Yoga, Qigong and Tai Chi about three years ago. In these practices she found healing of mind, body and soul. With such a positive impact these practices have given her she decided to share them with others.

Currently, Amy’s has certifications as a 200RYT Yoga Instructor, a Y12SR Space Holder and an IIQTC Level 1 Qigong Practice Leader.

I had a total hip replacement just over 5 years ago. Since then I have gotten back into fitness. I wanted to loose weight and get my strength back after so many years of hip pain and problems. I found dance and yoga to be a great combination to loosing weight and helping with back pain. I took my new passion and made it my career. I teach various fitness programs to both children and adults. I have a degree in child psychology and feel very strong about a healthy mind and body for people of all ages.

Hi, my name is Amy Phi Young, but I go by Hieu. (Pronounced “Hugh”)

I started my practice in 2009 with Tai Chi and Qigong, and then Yoga in 2010 in Beijing. I became a Certified Yoga Instructor in 2015.   I was originally born in Vietnam, and moved to the United States in 1995.  I speak Vietnamese, Mandarin, French and English.  I am also fluent in sign language.  I have a teenage daughter, Fendi who is also very good in Yoga.

My vision is to change the world, “One Breath At A Time.” My goals are to help people live happy, healthy, and to inspire their lives. My core values are community, excellence, and positivity. I consider my life and Yoga as a balance of Spiritual Strength, Flexibility and Emotional Peace.   On and off the mat, I use the eight limbs of yoga as a foundation for personal growth and positive change. 

I am dedicated to community, mindfulness, and awareness. I have many other interests and passions, which include cooking, professional seamstress and clothing designer. I love being both student and teacher. Practicing yoga is not only about improving your body physically, but also mentally. I love to hear what my students think and what they are up to in life. I discovered in my practice that breath with body movement can release the stresses of daily life. I use sequencing based on creative alignments which provide a safe space for my students to let go of the outside world and heal the body from the inside out. 

Om Shanti Shanti Shanti

I began practicing yoga 15 years ago shortly after my son was born. I was wanting to get back into my pre-pregnancy shape and was going to yoga for the physical work-out. I loved the fact that yoga met me right where I was and helped me rebuild my strength. With the first class I remember feeling a sense of coming home – of finding something that had perhaps been lost, something I had been missing without realizing it. With each class I began to see that there was so much more to yoga than the work-out. Yoga was affecting my heart, my self-perception, and my view of life in profound and meaningful ways.
Over the years I have received so many gifts and surprises from yoga: increased inner peace, greater mind-body connection, self-acceptance, physical and emotional healing, and community with like-minded individuals. My practice has given me greater confidence and awareness, and an increased enjoyment of life on and off the mat.
My yoga practice is always evolving and continues to be a catalyst for growth in my life. As I have experienced significant various life challenges over the years, yoga has been a stable force for healing and strength in my life. In 2015 I completed my 200-hour teacher training at Wanderlust in Austin, Texas so that I could share my love of yoga with others and add a deeper knowledge of yoga and healing to my 10-year practice as a professional holistic health coach and energy healer.
I love yoga because it full of variety and is a perfect mix between challenge and self-acceptance. There are so many varieties of yoga practice, there is always more to learn and endless opportunities for adventure, growth, self-discovery and community. After having my own business for the past 10 years, I am excited to bring my business skills to Yoga Pod by serving as Assistant Kavi. I am excited to be involved in supporting the growth and strengthening of The Woodlands yoga community.

Hello! My name is Lauren. I was born in Boston and I graduated from The Woodlands High School in 2006. From there I graduated from UT-Austin where my passion for yoga really took flight. (Being a former TWHS Highstepper certainly helped pave the way) After college I married my high school sweetheart and together we have an adorable fur-baby... Goldendoodle.

I am a 200hr certified yoga instructor and I have been teaching all different styles of yoga since 2012. I always tell people " The hardest part about yoga... is actually going to yoga!" The days we feel like we don't have enough time for it, are really the days we need it most. - Can I get an "amen" for Savasana?! - Yoga is the perfect glue to hold together all the aspects of life that try to pull us in different directions. Everyone can benefit from it, you just need to open yourself up to digging deep mentally, physically, and spiritually.

When you come to your mat, come with no expectations, no anticipations, and no judgements. I like to challenge my students to be present. Instead of reliving the past or trying to map out the future, just enjoy the here & now! Yoga is NOT about what the poses look like, what your fellow yogis can do, or what brand of athletic clothing you're wearing. Yoga is your time to feel strong, alive, and free! I hope you get that from my classes. Namaste & see you on the mat!
