DeeAnn Kelly

Yoga Instructor with a Wicked Right Cross

I have a long-standing passion for helping people reach their wellness and fitness goals, having spent over 1000 hours teaching adaptive yoga to people with limitations over the past 9+ years.  I am certified by PwR, Silver Sneakers, Parkinson Wise, and Rock Steady Boxing; have undergone over 500 hours of training from Yoga Alliance, and I am a former U.S. Army medic.  Finally, people tell me I have an excellent sense of humor, which is helpful in any endeavor in life - especially boxing.

Kickboxer, Registered Nurse & Wellness Coach

About 10 years ago, borderline obese, with asthma, and sick of being stuck on the couch, I took up kickboxing and jujitsu as a way to kickstart my life and get in shape.  A few years later I graduated Sonoma State University with an RN.  During my clinical rotations I realized I could do just as much good from within the ring as from inside the hospital, so I became a kickboxing and jujitsu coach.  Inspired by my mother’s battle with Crohn’s disease and convinced that the best healthcare is preventative healthcare, I decided to focus on those with chronic illnesses, and in 2017 I had the good luck to have Rock Steady Boxing drop by the gym where I worked.  Shortly thereafter Rock Steady hired me as a coach, and I have happily been coaching Parkinson’s patients to fight back against the disease ever since.

Sharlene Schneier

Certified & Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga Teacher

I have studied yoga since 2003 and was certified as a hatha yoga instructor in 2005 (500 hr Yoga Alliance registered), when I started my own business teaching private and corporate clients - individually and in groups at fitness centers, yoga studios, and in-home.  As a movement educator, I integrate principles of biomechanics, strength, mobility, balance, and function-based exercise.  In 2017, in what I regard as a ‘higher calling’, the boxing yogini earned her certification as a Rock Steady boxing coach for people with Parkinson’s.  I am passionate about teaching active agers and people with movement disorders to move and feel better in their body from the inside out.  I graduated from UC Berkeley with a BA in Sociology and I am certified in Parkinson’s exercise training through the Brian Grant Foundation. (so I'm really happy I have this job!)
