April Clendenin

April has always had a passion for dance. She started lessons at the Dance Arts Centre in Melbourne, Florida at the age of 3 years old. At 15, April moved away from her family to the The Harid Conservatory, the prestigious professional ballet training school for gifted young high school dancers in Boca Raton, Florida. For three years, she trained under Marjorie Tallchief and other notable dance instructors. She has performed roles such as Juliet from Romeo and Juliet, The Dying Swan, Dew Drop and Sugar Plum Fairy from the Nutcracker as well as Titania from A Midsummer’s Night Dream. During the summers off from high school, April studied at the Pacific Northwest Ballet in Seattle, Washington. After graduating from The Harid Conservatory and Spanish River High School in 1994 she settled in Orlando, Florida where she studied under Russell Sultzbach at the School of the Performing Arts and Valencia College. April made such an impression in the dance community that she was nominated for several awards as a teenager. She was nominated for the “Princess Grace Award” and won the Rebecca Ann Wright Classical Ballet Scholarship at the Children’s Community Theater of the Performing Arts at 14 years old. April was born in Homestead, Florida and moved back to South Florida in 2014 with her husband and two boys.

Kelsey Coggins

As the daughter of a dancer turned Dolphins Cheerleader Kelsey has a love of dance that runs through her veins. She trained from a young age at Heidi and Joe Melchiona's Dance Center and went to Coral Reef Senior High School to attend their prestigious Magnet Dance Program. After becoming a mother, she discovered Barre-style fitness as a client and pursued it as a career shortly after. Kelsey had the privilege and advantage of training under April Clendenin, whose classical ballet training, attention to detail, and tough-love attitude towards her clients makes her one of the best in the business. Kelsey's journey in fitness led her to a Hot Pilates Certification through Evolution Yoga. Her classes are high-energy, self-reflecting, and a full body work out.

Amy Frank

Born and raised in New Jersey, Amy Frank developed her love of movement and all things kinetic at an early age. She started her training in classical ballet which she continued through college and after as a hobby. A graduate of Tufts University, she studied Child Psychology and Advertising and joined the rat race in New York City sitting at a desk for long hours. Pilates, yoga and running did more than keep her healthy. Each exercise was a moving meditation in which she could process emotion, let go of every day stress and cultivate the connection between body and mind.

After moving to South Florida and having children, she discovered Hot Yoga and immediately recognized the benefits she received from her practice both on and off of the mat.

Life gave her a second opportunity to pursue the path she felt she was always meant for: a career incorporating her passion for yoga, love for anatomy and desire to help others. Since completing her 200 RYT training with Jimmy Barkan of the Barkan Method, she has been guiding others to let go of negativity and open their hearts to their own inner strength.

Amy believes that the real yoga happens when you walk outside the studio. Her goal is to connect with her students on a personal level to help them quiet their mind, focus on their alignment and stay present. Exercise is more than just staying physically fit; it is about nurturing mental health, growth, transformation and healing… all while having fun and smiling.
