I have been in the health care field as a registered nurse for the past 16 years. As an RN, I have seen the impact of inactivity on the body, and it has inspired me to pursue physical fitness.

Jenea Britton

I have always been interested in physical movement. With a background in dance and gymnastics, to discovering weight training, circuit training, and Crossfit, it is clear to me that health and fitness are an important part of a happy life. I took my first Yoga class six years ago and fell in love with the practice. Syncing body, breath, and mind is beautiful to me, and I believe Yoga can benefit everyone. I hope to share with students the ability to find happiness and freedom within their own bodies.

Health and fitness have always been an important part of my life. I have found a passion for teaching, and love sharing in the practice of yoga with others.

Throughout my life physical fitness has always been important to me. I discovered Barre in 2010 and was immediately hooked. Until Barre, I had never realized that such small movements could make such a big impact. I've recently added Spin to my repertoire for a cardio push, and I'm so excited to share my passion for Indoor Cycling and Barre with you!

Jamie Glenn

From cross country/track in high school to collegiate track at Ole Miss to several marathons, my first love was running. I then found a counterbalance to my running through Yoga in college. After moving to Tupelo, I missed my Yoga practice until I found Haven Studio. Through Haven, I discovered Barre. I have seen tremendous results from Barre - combining strength training with active stretching to lengthen the muscles. I have always had a passion for teaching, not only as a classroom teacher, but also through sharing the benefits of fitness with others as a personal trainer and spin instructor.

Gay Ramsey

I have always had a passion for nutrition, exercise, and cooking, and have learned how important it is to live a balanced lifestyle.  I'm an avid tennis player, and have always wanted my exercise routine to be as enjoyable as I find tennis.  I had become tired of doing routine gym workouts.  Several years ago, I was introduced to Spin and it has opened up an entirely new perspective for me - nothing about Spin is monotonous.  I hope to inspire people to not only exercise, but to have fun while doing it!

Randi Warmath

I began spinning 10 years ago as I was looking to find variety during training for a series of half-marathons. I soon realized that indoor cycling challenged me aerobically just as much as running, but provided the benefits of low-impact exercise and an encouraging group atmosphere. I fell in love with the fast music, strength benefits, and the efficiency of getting a full body workout in a short amount of time. As a former classroom teacher, I am excited to have an opportunity to teach again. Health and wellness are a big part of my life and so is having fun. To me, spin is a party on a bike. And not to mention, a great sweat. So join the party!

Janet Ventura

I'm a huge believer in doing what you love and you will never work a day in your life! Growing up in a home full of girls, I was inspired to follow a path in the beauty industry. After obtaining my Cosmetology license in 2013, I found myself drawn to makeup and hairstyling. However, after many years of hand and foot massage during manicures/pedicures, I was encouraged by clients to pursue my license in Massage Therapy. It is such a rewarding profession to be able to help my clients look and feel their absolute best - their smiles and confidence resulting from my work is what motivates me.

Melinda Cobb

I have been a nurse for almost 20 years, and while I love being a nurse, I felt it was time for a change. I chose Massage Therapy because it gives me a different avenue of helping people. I want my clients to feel the care and compassion with every touch. Knowing that I can provide a safe, relaxing environment and give a client undivided attention is a priceless reward.
