About us

Keri Johnson is a Gainesville, Florida based Jivamukti Yoga® teacher, mental health counselor, Daring Way™ facilitator, Somatic Experiencing® therapist, and entrepreneur. Inspired by the beauty life has to offer, and fueled by the passionate love within her own heart, Keri began practicing yoga in her early teens. Keri has been teaching yoga since 2005, is an Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT), and a Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider® (YACEP®). In addition to studying with her foremost yoga teachers, Sharon Gannon and David Life, she also had the honor of training with many contemporary teachers—Shiva Rea; Seane Corn, Hala Khouri, and Suzanne Sterling with Off the Mat, Into the World®; Brock & Krista Cahill; David Williams; and Chelsea Roff with Eat, Breathe, Thrive. Keri completed her PhD in Counseling and Counselor Education from the University of Florida studying trauma-informed mindfulness-based practices.


In her classes, Keri weaves together traditional yoga philosophy with devotion, Sanskrit chanting, breath awareness, invitational language, uplifting music, and robust sequencing. Her goal is to inspire students to mindfully honor the present moment of their breath, body, and the natural connection to the elemental world in a joyful and supportive way, providing students with a heart-opening and refreshing experience. Her classes are great for those who are looking for an opportunity to turn inward, be guided by their breath, and trust the inner wisdom of their body as they play and flow through well-rounded and robust asana practice. Keri humbly bows down to the lotus feet of her teachers for offering the ancient teachings of yoga, while inspiring her to share them with all willing individuals. Keri welcomes all practitioners to come and share the sacredness of yoga. Visit for more information.

Retreats inspire me to continue to practice and fuel my journey. I always find specified intention and feel it projects me closer to my purpose. Shannon
