Terry Seth Owner/Instructor
Terry is a RYT 500 Instructor with Yoga Alliance, which acknowledges the completion of yoga teacher training with an approved Registered Yoga School (RYS). She has been practicing yoga since 1993 and began teaching in 2004. Her teacher trainings were very transformative and have given her the ability to share her enthusiasm for the practice of yoga with hundreds of people of all ages and backgrounds. She received her 200hr teacher training in Erie through Integral Yoga and Plasha Yoga in 2005. In June 2020 she completed her 300hr teacher training with Satya Yoga in Erie. Under the guidance of many skilled, knowledgeable and wise teachers through the years, her teaching has grown and evolved to enhance her personal and spiritual development. She is passionate about the healing properties of yoga and she offers a natural and practical approach to yoga, accessible for everyone. In May 2016, Terry opened the doors to School House Yoga Studio, a dream come true. Since then, the studio has become a community, a safe space and a gathering place for teachers and students alike. The nourishment and support that a yoga community provides cannot be understated. In community, there is power in union and connection. We can harness this power with loving intention to influence positive changes in the bigger community outside the yoga studio.
"May the entire universe be filled with peace and joy, love and light."
Christina Ohmer Instructor
Christina encourages students to be curious and explore their mind, body and heart on and off the mat. This self-exploration and the use of one’s own breath rhythm as the soundtrack for the practice can help cultivate a deeper awareness and inner listening. Christina values classical yoga teachings, asana, meditation, and breathwork, and draws from many other teachings and traditions.
Since coming to the mat in 2002, Christina has explored different yoga styles and has had the fortunate opportunity to come across valuable teachers and friendships. In 2010, she earned her 200-hour yoga teaching certificate with Tias and Surya Little at Prajna Yoga in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Since then, she has continued studies through extensive internal work on and off the mat, and by attending various classes and workshops.
Christina is enlivened by connecting with others and finds the yoga practice to be one of the most rewarding, enriching, and often challenging pieces of her life. For these reasons, she is drawn to share the practice and hopes you will join her soon!
Melanie Henderson Instructor
Melanie has been practicing yoga for over 7 years and is a 500-hour Registered Yoga Teacher through Yoga Alliance. Melanie completed her 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training at Satya School of Yoga under the guidance of Sona Hernandez and Stacey Orr and her 300-hour Yoga Teacher Training with Michael Plasha.
She believes that yoga is important to healing the body, mind and spirit for people of all ages. Melanie feels that returning our connection to the breath and sitting in silence are necessary in our over-stressed, fast-paced world today. We must return to the breath and turn inward to improve our well-being, health care system, and community. She is passionate about bringing the practice of yoga to those suffering from chronic stress and diseases, such as stroke and cancer. A young, vibrant spirit at heart, Melanie wants to further obtain certification in children’s yoga to empower them to take a greater role in being healthy. She is an avid Muppet fan and her practices often involve a lighthearted and child-like playfulness—true to her belief that our inner child must continue to shine no matter what age we are. You may even hear a word of wisdom or two from Jim Henson during her class!

Kris has been a student of yoga since 2005 and is a 200-hour Registered Yoga Teacher through Yoga Alliance. She completed her teacher training at Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in Stockbridge, MA in 2018.
Kris believes that yoga should be accessible to all. Her classes incorporate asana (postures), pranayama (breath work), meditation, and relaxation for a holistic yoga practice. Students are encouraged to notice and cultivate awareness through their practice.
She creates an environment that encourages self-acceptance and growth. When students can take the lessons learned on the mat out into the world, incorporating yoga into their off-the-mat world, amazing things can happen – one breath at a time.
Amy VanScoter Instructor
