Jeremy Thomas, Yoga Instructor
Jeremy received his Yoga Teacher training through the Triad Yoga Institute in Greensboro, and is a Certified Master Teacher Reiki. Training in Design & Production techniques at NCSA, and working for Cook Medical as an Engineering Design Draftsman and 3D printer tech., he has taken his love of structural engineering into the art of yoga. His personal practice has developed over the last several years, stemming from the deep desire to heal his own body from a spinal injury. Now, at the peak of his own physical fitness, even compared to his days as a young athlete, he is primed to share the techniques which have helped him bring his body and mind into greater states of peace, harmony and alignment. The key to a successful practice, he feels, is in meeting the physical body's limitations with peaceful acceptance and moving fearlessly into the possibilities of greater understanding through patient and persistent practice.
Chloë Nickles, Yoga Instructor
Chloë began her yoga journey 3 years ago in the quest to combat anxiety and depression after suffering years of emotional and sexual abuse. Yoga became a gateway to awaken the Divine Energy that had been buried and reconnect her spiritual self to her physical self. No stranger to body awareness and movement, 15 prior years of ballet allowed quick growth and progression through Asana practice but it's the spiritual awakening that led Chloë to pursue Yoga Teacher Training in 2015 with Dancing Dogs Yoga. The hot power vinyasa DDY offers, inspired by Baron Baptiste, is very physical and offers an intense work out experience while focusing on the fundamentals of yogic philosophy.
Recently, Chloë had the opportunity to live and teach yoga in Sydney, Australia where her practice and teaching style were heavily influenced by a variety of modern yoga guru's and influencers. The fluid connection of breath and movement are evident in her vinyasa sequencing where she offers advanced transitions and postures with a light hearted spirit and gentle yet powerfully motivated guidance. She truly believes all bodies are capable of great power when the asana is approached with true heart and a steadfast practice.
Fun fact about Chloë, she is the personal yoga teacher and girlfriend of American Ninja Warrior Neil "Crazy" Craver. The two can be seen on NBC's hit series, globe trotting and narrating their travels through social media, or in Divine Yoga practicing and inspiring together!

Gina Kelly, Yoga Instructor
Gina first found yoga as a form of exercise to stay fit and later discovered that it is profoundly more than that. As someone who has experienced anxiety and depression, she has found that coming to the mat and connecting the breath with movement is an incredibly effective method to quiet the mind and rejuvenate the body. Yoga is a powerful form of self-discovery, care and love. We often look outside of ourselves for fulfillment, recognition and approval, but the yogic way of life asks us to look within to get to know our authentic selves, become present, and celebrate our self-worth by bringing the mind, body and spirit into union.
In 2015 Gina became a Registered Yoga Teacher with the Yoga Alliance (RYT-200) through Ganesha's Yoga & Wellness and K10 Yoga with Kristen Williams. Though she entered training with the goal of deepening her practice and knowledge, not to teach, yoga has now become so significant in her life that she wants to share this wonderful, transformative practice with the community. Gina believes that yoga is accessible to absolutely everyone; it's not about a person's flexibility or strength, it's about the willingness to show up to your mat and see what happens. She is honored to be teaching at Divine Yoga and hopes to see you in the studio soon.
