About the Instructors

Lori Kirsch  -

I am an instructor and owner at East Cincy Yoga. I graduated from Cincinnati Yoga School (CYS) with my 200hr in April 2014. I found yoga (or rather, it found me) in Fall 2012 and I fell in love with it after simply trying out some videos at home. I knew this was something I had to learn more about and be a part of as much as possible. After finding CYS, I began my journey into yoga teacher training school. Since then, I created and opened East Cincy Yoga here on the East side of town! In 2017 we began our own 200 hr Yoga Teacher Training program. I thoroughly enjoy seeing others change physically, mentally and emotionally through yoga and am happy I can be a guide to others. When not teaching, I am devoted to homeschooling my children as well as being a crazy sports mom! My ultimate vision for the studio is for everyone that comes in to feel at home and notice a positive change in their mind and body after their yoga practice. 

Linn Uhlfelder - I graduated from Cincinnati Yoga School in 2015 with my 200hr.
As a yoga student I was blessed to have an instructor (thank you Lori Kirsch East Cincy Yoga) that opened up a new world for me with yoga, just going to classes with her over a few months I suddenly felt in my heart that this is something I want to share also, the healing, soothing, powerful, uplifting, confidence that any type of yoga practice brings out of you. 

Christian Hartman - Christian Hartman is a Yoga instructor & musician who performs regularly with Mayan Ruins, a Tribal Music group. He has been practicing yoga since 2008 & received his 200 hour Yoga Teacher Certification in May, 2011 from Cincinnati Yoga School & has been presenting Yin Yoga classes in yoga & dance studios regularly since getting his certification.

 Kesse Hodge - Kesse has practiced yoga off and on for over 20 years and is a Yoga for All certified instructor. After being diagnosed with several chronic illnesses, she found her way back to a consistent practice including meditation and breath work. She decided to teach in order to bring the benefits of yoga to those who think they can't do it. She strives to make her classes accessible to all levels and bodies regardless of ability, strength, or flexibility. Her teaching philosophy is that she is here to help guide you and keep you safe in your practice but her main responsibility is to help you build your own practice in order to empower yourself and gain all the benefits yoga has to offer. When she's not practicing yoga, she is a freelance marketing consultant and wannabe artist, chef, and gardener.

Sonya Verma - Sonya is a Yoga Alliance registered E-RYT 200 yoga instructor, meditation coach, and Reiki Master. Prior to her journey as a yoga instructor, she earned her B.S. in Human Nutrition and Masters in Healthcare Administration and Business Informatics. During her time in school and working in the healthcare industry, yoga and meditation became a cornerstone of her life and helped her stay healthy in mind, body, and spirit. She felt drawn to different modalities of healing and went deeper into her practice which inspired her to share her passion with others.

She finished her RYT 200 yoga training in 2013 with the Bija School with a focus in Ashtanga and Vinyasa yoga. Currently, she is working on her 300 RYT training where she is learning Daoist forms of yoga that include Yin, Yang, subtle anatomy, and meditation.


Marianne Lang -

For nearly 13 years teaching various forms of yoga (Ashtanga, Chair, Gentle Wellness, Hatha, Vinyasa; Life Coaching, Meditation, Private Lessons). My goal as a yoga instructor is to provide the best possible experience for the students entrusted to my care. Each person is given individual attention and consideration for their specific needs and intentions for the class.  As a daily practitioner and teacher, I endeavor to promote traditional yoga instruction based on the eight limbed (Ashtanga) path, as well as various styles to encourage self-discovery and fun. I believe that each session is a significant step further in our holistic development. It gives me great joy to witness students exhibiting confidence and delight as they progress in their practice, regardless at what level they are in or what physical abilities they possess. It is equally gratifying to hear students say:

“I feel less stressed and more relaxed after class.”

“I feel better physically, mentally and spiritually.”

“I can’t wait for the next class!”
