Katy Ellington

Certified Yoga Instructor, Massage Therapist

@balancedbodiesyoga

Katy initially decided to become certified as a Yoga instructor as a way to complete her increasingly healthy lifestyle; she studied organic farming and herbology and practiced Yoga for years privately.  She knew that becoming certified would give her a platform to help others find their best selves as well as begin to listen to their bodies for their own sense health empowerment.

Katy discovered how crucial alignment would be for her Yoga practice and her Yoga students.   Katy shows her students that how we move (or don't move) throughout the years causes degenerative diseases, muscle and joint pain, and that making precise changes to movement can drastically improve health. Katy loves teaching new Yoga students how to de-stress and restore the body by using Yogic breathing practices, how to improve their alignment for optimal health, and how these tools can be carried with them throughout their lives.


Jennie Pletsch

Certified Yoga Instructor

Jennie Pletsch has been practicing yoga since 2007, and received her 200 hour instructor certification from a Chicago-based school after her immsersion training program in Costa Rica. Jennie's yoga style specializes in individual modifications for injury recovery and genetic conditions, based on her belief that our bodies perform the best with a well-rounded routine. For her, that includes massage recovery and yoga.

Jennie describes herself as grounded, expansive, and empathetic, which fits right in with her favorite part of Balanced Bodies: the community atmosphere. Shortly after joining our team, se jumped right into training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Jennie quickly found that BJJ surpassed her expectations, noting that it "helps my reflexes, exercises my analytical skills, and provides excellent cardio." Along with BJJ and yoga, Jennie also enjoys aerial silks, and any outdoor activity involving sweat or water.

As an affiliate of Triton Fight Center (Broken Arrow, OK), Balanced Bodies provides Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes and private lessons.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a lifelong learning experience, with the outcome being increased confidence and an improved ability to defend oneself in the event of an attack. Whether you are just starting out in submission grappling or you have quite a bit of experience in martial arts, our student-focused lessons can help empower you with new skills.

BJJ techniques are often used by law-enforcement and military personnel for use in worst-case scenario, hand-to-hand combat situations. These techniques, along with strength training and cardio conditioning, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu can help you meet your personal goals or overcome what would otherwise be a nightmarish situation.

Tulsa's Yoga Studio

Yoga will help you find not only your physical strength and flexibility, but also your individual balance of mind, body, and spirit. Hatha yoga combines breathing (pranayama) with postures (asanas) and meditation. When combining these three powerful ideas you are sure to feel balanced inside and out. Our focus, whether in a relaxing or strenuous class, is alignment and working in a pain free range. With this focus in mind our classes are accessible to any body type with any amount of experience.

As a nationally certified massage therapist and an internationally certified Yoga teacher, she became interested in natural healing after struggling with minor health issues in her teens when medicine stopped working. Shelby has taught yoga in Oklahoma City and finished an international yoga certification in Tulsa at the Yoga Spirit Academy.

She has experience teaching athletes in sports from football, motocross, & MMA to dance, gymnastics, & running. She also knows what it is like to be a beginner and knows how hard it can be to start something new, which is why she enjoys teaching private lessons.
