  Allison Wagner, RYT   Allison Wagner is a certified yoga teacher, RYT-200, with the Yoga Alliance. She has been practicing yoga for many years but did not become passionate about it until 2015. After suffering injuries from overtraining in distance running and weight lifting, she began doing yoga exclusively. While attending Power Vinyasa regularly, she discovered it was possible to enjoy cardio and strength building benefits through yoga alone.  As she began her exploratory journey into her practice, a love for Yin and Restorative Flows have surfaced as well. Combining different types of yoga and mindfulness into her weekly practice has helped her begin to eliminate stress and anxiety from her life. She is a lifelong student to the practice of yoga now and enjoys attending workshops regularly and continuing her education.  Allison's family and close friends have described her as a motivated, creative, adventurous, passionate, genuine and intuitive person. Fellow teachers she looks to as mentors say she's open, powerful, accepting, charismatic, and illuminated. She feels a strong sense of fulfillment when she's serving others and she utilizes all of these traits in her teaching style. Leveraging her strong creative skills, she provides unique sequences for her classes and loves themes. Allison's intention for her students is for them to feel comfortable, confident and relaxed while practicing. She hopes that each student will leave feeling inspired and with a greater sense of peace and well being.

  Samantha Knies Gray, RYT   Samantha made yoga a daily part of her life when she lived in Carmel, Indiana – maintaining a home practice when she wasn’t sweating it out during hot classes after work. She began practicing at Fire Horse after moving back home to Dubois County in January 2016. Samantha fell in love with yin yoga after taking one class with Julia Jalles and knew that she wanted to bring this practice to the lives of others. She finished her 200-hour teacher training at Fire Horse in November 2017 and is passionate about the benefits of all yoga, but especially yin, restorative, and children’s yoga.  In addition to teaching, Sam attends regular vinyasa and hatha classes at Fire Horse and maintains a daily yin practice at home with her two young daughters. She’s an avid believer in taking time out of our busy lives (and taking time off of heavy workouts!) to rest + restore our bodies and minds. Samantha’s intention is to bring a deep level of peace and an awareness of body + breath to every student she teaches.

  Patricia Lagenour, Jill of All Trades   Patricia Lagenour (Trish) is excited to be a part of the Fire Horse Yoga family. She is retired from Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center and loves being involved in Fire Horse in whatever way she can.  Yoga found her in 1968/69 while she was a senior at Indiana University. She discovered a program on Public Broadcasting featuring Richard Hittleman demonstrating yoga, and fell in love enough to order his book. That book and a yoga practice went with her as she taught high school in Baltimore and the next year as she traveled to Australia and Scotland for most of a year.  She returned to IU Bloomington to start on her Master's Degree and ended up working at IU for 20 years. She was married to Donald, and they had a daughter, naming her Lydia.  Trish is happy to contribute to the studio by doing some record keeping, other duties like making copies, and cleaning the studio weekly.
