Our Yoga Teachers are knowledgeable, patient, passionate and dedicated to the practice of yoga. They challenge the student to grow by encouraging them to practice safely, learning to listen to their body. Our teachers focus on correct alignment to avoid injuries, whether in a flow class or Hatha class, and practice meditation and breath. Our goal is to empower each individual student to find what works best for them in their practice. The Yoga Nest is a judgement free, safe zone. Our teachers focus on bringing the community together and having fun!
The best teachers are those who tell you where to look, but don’t tell you what to see. -Alexandra K. Trenfor

Kerry Fannon, MS, RD, LDN, RYT is a yoga teacher, registered dietitian and Reiki Practitioner. In her day to day job, she specializes in eating disorders and treats those suffering from body image issues that
result from diet culture.
Kerry began practicing yoga for the physical benefits after recovering from a serious knee surgery. She quickly experienced the mental benefits and fell in love with the practice for the mind, body and spiritual connection it fosters. Soon after, she completed her 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training, hopeful that she could lead classes for students to experience the benefits of the yoga practice. Kerry teaches a vinyasa style class, which links breath to movement. She aims to lead her students through a class that will enhance their connection to their body, and help transform any mind-body-spirit connection that has been lost.
Kerry believes the body is an incredible machine, and rather than experience life with body dissatisfaction, we should celebrate the beauty in every individual body, for it is our individual vehicle through this beautiful life.
