Femke Struiksma moved to Texas from The Netherlands in 2016. She loves being a wife, mom to an active toddler, and a writer. Femke challenges her students to work hard and play hard, as they explore how to translate their yoga practice into daily life, both on and off the mat. Her background practicing law, in fact, has prepared her uniquely to help her students focus on what's important in learning yoga. Femke recently earned her teacher certification at The Woodlands Yoga Studio with Cat McCarthy, of New York and New Orleans. Femke places great emphasis on alignment and use of props ensuring students are safe whether concentrating on an individual pose or practicing a flow. Femke is currently pursuing specialty certifications in other yoga styles.

Jan Parker Dial is a lifelong resident of Montgomery County, save for a short foray into Louisiana when her two sons were very young. All roads, geographic and otherwise, led her to yoga. Other stops along the way included wild rides into local, state and national civic activity, and reporting for three local newspapers, It may be tough to understand how those experiences enhance her yoga instruction -- but both communications education and the sometimes illogical, even unkind world of public service now help her impart to her students the importance of yoga and its core loving kindness on and off the mat. Health of mind, body and spirit ground all her teachings. Most of all, Jan hopes that her gratitude to the teachers at Moonlight Yoga and the founders and staff of Living Yoga Program, and to every one of her students, shines in all her classes. "Gratitude is the highest yoga." $15 drop-in fee. $80 Six-class package. $100 Eight-class package. $120 Ten-class package. Discounts for those 70-plus. Credit cards, checks, cash accepted.
