As her yoga practice grew, her passion for healthy living and a balanced life grew as well, which lead her to the study of Ayurvedic medicine.

Kimmi Chase joins her new yoga family at Infinity Yoga and Wellness
after moving back “home” to Brevard County after 18 years in Orlando. Her educational background is focused in Computer and Information Sciences, Mathematics, and International Business. Kimmi has earned aBS from Florida State University and an MBA from the University ofMiami. She has been working in the global high tech enterprise software industry since 2002. After long days in front of a computer screen, it became clear she needed to find balance. At the
encouragement of her husband, Abre, she tried her first yoga class in
2011 at Guruv Yoga in Lake Mary, FL. Here, she fell in love with yoga
and has been practicing ever since. Because yoga had such a profound impact on her mind and body, she was anxious to expand her knowledge of yoga. She applied to a 268 hour yoga teacher training with Tymi Howard where she earned her E-YRT 200. Kimmi’s yoga journey has been life changing. In 2016, she underwent a double mastectomy and believes her quick recovery was in part due to her dedication to the healthy lifestyle yoga encourages. She has had the privilege of being taught by many teachers including Steve Ross, Ross Rayburn, Taylor Harkness, and of course her mentor Tymi Howard. She has been teaching yoga since 2013 and has loved every class. In addition, Kimmi is a lover of music, science, nature, silliness, and her amazing family – and sometimes she's a lover of running. She is very excited to be a part of the wonderful yoga community in Cocoa Beach.

Brittany's (a.k.a. Britty yoga journey began in 2003 when she took her first yoga class as a college PE credit. At the time she was 18 and pursuing modeling and fitness which made her develop body image issues. She instantly fell in love with the instructors demeanor and the way yoga made her feel more connected to herself and her body. She went on to finish her Health and Wellness certification and continued seeking out new yoga experiences over the years in each location she lived. She never really found her yoga "home" until she landed in one of Stephanie's classes. She says Infinity Yoga has inspired her and created a place for her to grow in her practice.
She was recently awarded her 200 hr YTT certification and is so excited to share the gift of yoga with people of all ages and kinds. Britty's teachings are a fusion of Vinyasa and Yin and her favorite thing about teaching is seeing the transformation in her students and myself.
Off the mat, Britty is a mother, artist, singer, animal lover, and entrepreneur. Her roots run deep in spirituality, the arts, and music and she loves bringing that creativity and soulfulness into her classes.
