Melissa Turpie

Kellie is a yoga practitioner and rock climber from Oahu, Hawaii. She loves how yoga and climbing complement each other; They both promote body awareness, build strength, and increase flexibility. Kellie completed her 200 hour Yogahour yoga teacher training with Yoga Oasis in 2020. Her aim for her classes is to offer a momentary refuge — a safe space to unplug, shape shift, and sweat away the stress of the day. 

Becky Belanger

A yoga practitioner for 15 years, Melissa received her RYT200 hour certification in 2020 through Yoga Oasis. Outside of yoga, she's a CPA specializing in non-profit and corporate tax.

Kylee Warren

Kylee has been teaching U-Jam Fitness since 2017. After certifying to instruct in Utah she went on to teach classes near Chicago before moving to Tucson. Kylee has been dancing since childhood and has always had a passion for staying active, so she is thrilled to combine the two with U-Jam. She strongly believes in getting and staying fit through something that makes you happy, and Kylee hopes to share the joy of dance though her classes. As an Arizona native, she loves to be outside exploring the desert. When she’s not dancing, Kylee enjoys reading, playing sports, and spending time with her family. 

Becky is a rock climbing, movement teaching, professional dancing mama.  She has an MFA in Dance from the University of Arizona, and is certified in Fletcher Pilates.  Dancing has taken her around the world and back, and she has been teaching in Tucson for over 10 years.
