Nicolette Tura

Nicolette Tura

Nicolette is a Cosmic Goddess and a Bay Area Native. I am all about diving deep into the mysteries of the universe and enjoying this wild ride via a human flesh suit. My teaching, offerings & movement are inspired by asking myself what do I need right now - How I can accept where I'm at and perhaps find more joy, flow, ease, authentic connection in this moment, in this life. I adore variety and learning new things so you'll experience that in the safe space I create. I invite everyone to be seen, to feel more vibrant and safe to shine their own unique light in the world.

Classes: vibrant Yoga

Heather Gersh

Heather started teaching aerobics at the age of 18! Complete with leg warmers and leotards, she loved to move, dance, de-stress and soon realized exercise was the gateway to a  more balanced life. Fast forward 30 years and 2 kids later, she’s thrilled to still be teaching and living a strong, (semi) balanced life. She grew up in a sports fanatical family in Minneapolis and took her love of athletics and movement onto a yoga mat and into other areas of fitness. Currently, she teaches at The Dailey Method and last year she developed a class called FITT and FIRE - she believes in the benefits of burn and the joy of movement. She also is so excited to lead the Fitness and Wellness program at Sphere.

Classes: Fitt and fire (strength)
