Lynn's motto is that everybody is a yoga body and lives to share yoga with yogis at any experience level. Everyone must start somewhere, and at Sunshine, everyone is welcome.

Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider, E-RYT-500, YACEP, Senior Yoga Certified Specialist, Ayurveda Specialist, PreNatal Yoga Certified, Aerial Yoga Certified Specialist, Teacher Trainer, Thai Body Work-Certified and a Reiki Master.

Here is Lynn's story...

'I have been married to the love of my life, Eric, since 1999. We have three exceptional children, two dogs, and one grand puppy. In 2001 I started my yoga journey before Sept 11th but after the birth of my first son. I never expected the road would lead me here.
Yoga gave me freedom. Freedom from the world and freedom from the person I thought I was. I had to let go of the version of me the world told me to be and become a more authentic version of myself. Since my first yoga class, I have been curious why yoga made such an impression on me and how it changed me and brought out the best in me. After almost 21 years of yoga practice and ten years of teaching yoga, I feel there is so much still to do and so much left to explore. I try to bring that knowledge to Sunshine School of Yoga and Sunshine Yoga Shack.'

Jennifer Sharts

Certified 200 Hour Yoga Teacher and Certified Aerial Yoga Specialist, Jennifer has her B.A. in Interdisciplinary Studies with focuses in Behavioral and Social Science from University of Texas.

Meet Jennifer; this is her story...
"I wish I could start by telling you that I began my yoga practice healthy and strong both physically and mentally, but, like a lot of us, I can't. I started my yoga practice at 34 years old, during my last semester at UTA where I was working on my life-long dream to graduate college. I was struggling physically, making it to 180 pounds by eating that college diet, and mentally, developing depression and panic attacks, when one of my professors introduced me to yoga and I decided to change my life.
I also wish I could tell you my yoga journey began and it was up from there, but it wasn't. What I can tell you is that after continuing to put one foot in front of the other and understanding that some days are one step forward and two steps back, I fell in love with my practice and began to like myself.
At 39 years old, I walked into Sunshine Yoga Shack, beginning another pivotal moment that allowed me to change my life again. Looking for guidance and knowledge and some fun aerial, I met Lynn Rozak and an entire tribe of family that loved me unconditionally and continues to do so every day. My practice grew tenfold (that yin helps!), but my confidence and the love I started to feel for myself and others grew even deeper.
That overweight, scared, panicked, sad girl who started this journey is no longer the person you see today. Yoga didn't change me, yoga gave me the strength, the courage, the support, and the love to change myself. If I can do it, so can you."

Kayla Coonrod

Certified 200 Hour Yoga Teacher and Certified Aerial Yoga Specialist.

Kayla has a daughter, an incredibly supportive boyfriend, and his teenage son. They have a chihuahua and an Alaskan Malamute who are both 11 years old. Kayla works for a cybersecurity company and teaches yoga on the weekends. She was born with Congenital heart disease which has been a continuous battle throughout her life. This is her story...
"In November 2016 I walked into Sunshine Yoga Shack a very different person from the person I am today. Back then, I had a lot of things going on both physically and emotionally. I started going to classes regularly and was amazed at how fast my body was changing. I felt good. I was getting stronger and I had more energy. Something else was changing as well, but I didn’t notice it at first. My mindset was changing and getting stronger. All of a sudden I didn’t feel like a weak person anymore. I started to believe that I could do things I never thought I was capable of before. I also started developing friendships and found myself surrounded by a community of people who supported and encouraged me. I fell in love with the person yoga allowed me to become. This journey led me to start teaching aerial yoga in June of 2017 and then earn my RYT in December of 2017. My yoga practice allowed me to build the self-confidence and courage I needed to make the necessary changes in my life to be happy and work towards my potential. My goal is to continue to grow in my practice and share the experience with the amazing tribe at Sunshine Yoga Shack."
