Courtney Lyons

I grew up playing sports from nearly the time I could walk, and enjoyed playing soccer, basketball, tennis, and rugby throughout the years in California. I began doing yoga and strength training during my high school years, and found that the gym I attended had some great cycling instructors. I began incorporating spin classes into my workout routine until I moved to Alaska in 2008. Fast forward to 2015, when perusing Facebook I saw a post for instructor auditions being held for Anchorage Cycle. The memories of all the great classes I used to take came flooding back. I went out on a whim, prepared a short routine, and (honestly, feeling a little silly and apprehensive!) auditioned to be an instructor for Anchorage Cycle. So, here I am now! AYC has introduced me to a community of amazing people whom I am honored to ride alongside, and I could not be more grateful. The energy in the studio and the feeling of absolute elation following a ride is unparalleled!

Ever since opening, I have found Anchorage Cycle a vibrant community. It has become a second home for me. I am so grateful now to be one of the Motivators and share the gift of cycle with everybody that comes to one of my classes.

I love cycle because through the busy week, a cycle class creates an opportunity for you to be in control - and will push you steps closer towards your goals. I encourage you to welcome, embrace and enjoy the challenges that come with every class. Everyone deserves to be sculpted into the person they are striving to be both outside and within. I will do my best to make my rides exciting and fun with a variety of energetic music that will make it an incredible experience helping you to burn maximum calories and tone both body and mind.

Check out one of my classes then lose your mind and find your soul.

I am a lifelong Alaskan, born and raised in Homer. I am the oldest of six kids and the only boy. I work in the construction industry but I try to spend as much time playing outside as possible!

Although I originally started practicing yoga to rehab from a knee injury, I've experienced a multitude of benefits beyond just physical ones. Yoga has not only helped me heal and strengthen my body but it also helps ground me and develop mental and emotional clarity. I think yoga can affect positive change in all aspects of our lives and I appreciate how yoga always seems to bring me back to who I want to be and who I'm working on becoming. After experiencing for myself many wide-ranging benefits from a regular yoga practice I was inspired to share my passion with others, so I attended the Anchorage Yoga Teacher Training program. I've been teaching yoga ever since graduating and I would love to invite you to check out a class sometime and enjoy a brief yoga journey that can help you feel better – inside and out!

 

Gloria Garber

As a born and raised Alaskan, the love of outdoor activities is in my blood. I was exposed to cardio based fitness at a young age with hiking, mountain biking, cross country running and skiing and competitive soccer. Many injuries later, I found yoga and attended the 200-HR Teacher Training at Anchorage Yoga. I took the course to better my understanding of anatomy to pair with my degree in Exercise Science from Boise State (go Broncos!), and NASM personal training certification but took away so much more than that. My entire view of "exercise" changed. In fact, my entire view of life changed.... and I was hooked.

If Anchorage Yoga and cardio had a baby, it would be Anchorage Cycle. When it opened, I knew I wanted to get involved to inspire others through exercise the way the Yoga studio did for me. If you're into welcoming and supportive yoga vibes, plus a workout that feels more like a party on a bike, I encourage you to come check out a class!
