Hi, my name is Bruce and I have actually experienced firsthand the myriad of benefits that yoga has in the body, mind, and heart. My heart and passion is in guiding students and I draw on inspiration from my studies, travels, and relationships. Yoga is a practice and a lifestyle for me, one that I, on one hand admit to struggle with everyday, and on the other continue to lean on for strength, clearing, and clarity.

Ozlem used to suffer from severe insomnia, and only found relief when she stepped onto her mat for the first time in 2010, in a Bikram yoga studio. It gave her a sense of calm and clarity, which enabled her to sleep. Needless to say, from that day she was hooked, and vowed to become a teacher, to help others and share the healing benefits of yoga. Ozlem started teaching in 2014 and has trained with Fierce Grace yoga, and at the Patanjali Yoga Institute in Rihiskesh, India, in Traditional Hatha yoga. Currently she practices a vast range of styles to influence and grow her teaching.

As a Brazilian-American, I've always wanted to celebrate my culture with others. I've lived all over the world but Brazil is home for me; it has this unique energy about it where you feel more relaxed, welcome, confident and inspired.
It was in Brazil that I started my fitness journey. Like many women, I was extremely self-conscious about my body. At this time, strong was not the new skinny and curvy definitely wasn't acceptable. When I moved to Brazil for studies, I saw a different kind of female shape celebrated - women with curves. My idea of fitness and my own body completely changed. I began to work out because I enjoyed it and not because I'd "get fat" if I didn't. The result was getting into the best shape of my life and becoming much happier with my body and myself.
I created my company, Corpão Fitness, to share this fitness mind-set with others. My goal is to introduce you to a Brazilian, fitness lifestyle - to relax more, to laugh more and to enjoy more. My classes are challenging but they're also fun, sometimes silly and always welcoming.
