Chaz Russ (E-RYT-500, T-500) Founder of Sisters Yoga (Fresno), a devoted yoga teacher of 7 years and practitioner for over 16 years, Chaz teaches joyful, creative yoga classes that are a fountain of fun! Chaz believes yoga should not be serious, as life is serious enough--this is why she loves keeping it light and enjoys playing upbeat music in class!
In 2006, Chaz founded Sisters Yoga and Sisters Yoga School in Fresno--an all-female yoga studio. Sisters Yoga won top honors in the Fresno People's Choice Awards, Best Yoga category, two years in a row as well as appeared on all the local TV stations multiple times. Sisters Yoga was featured in numerous articles in the Fresno Bee and was honored as Fresno Magazine's "50 Favorite Things." She feels tremendous pride that Kandis, one of her teacher training graduates, purchased Sisters Yoga and her "pride and joy," Sisters Yoga, continues to thrive. From time to time, Chaz returns to Fresno to teach workshops as a visiting instructor. She also serves as a business consultant for yoga studios looking to boost their business and sense of community.
Chaz was recently named Best New Yoga Instructor in LA Family Magazine. She also models for yoga. Although Chaz takes a lighter approach, she is serious when it comes to capitalizing on the healing benefits yoga affords. So much of this life and our yoga practice is about raising our consciousness, freeing ourselves from the cages of our egos and feeling our connectedness. Come celebrate yourself with Chaz and open your heart door to the beaming light that is within us all!
