Our instructors are all different, with diverse lives, styles and backgrounds but what is consistent is that all of them are kind, committed and inspirational.


Yoga Teacher

Alyssa found her passion for yoga from a young age and has been able to develop her understanding of the practice over her 3 years of training. She has learned to not only love the practice, but enjoy the entire spiritual journey she has gained from her experience. At the age of 16, she completed the YogaFlow teacher training and has since been teaching at a variety of the YogaFlow studios. Alyssa would not be where she is today without her yoga-loving Dad and twin sister who have supported her every step of the way and never cease to miss one of her classes.

Alyssa’s goal as an instructor is to help others find mindfulness and self-expression in their own practice just as she did in her own journey. She is inspired by creative sequences and focuses on creating a unique series in every flow.


Barre Instructor

Britta McCombie is in her third-year teaching barre, but is a veteran when it comes to taking class. Growing up, Britta was always active in sports, but once competitions came to a close, she found group fitness classes a great way to remain active. In particular, she found Barre to be a fun exercise to stay in shape, but also a place to relax and escape from every day stressors. She looks forward to making classes fun with energetic playlists, while maintaining an atmosphere to help clients achieve their personal goals.

Full time, Britta is a Project Manager at Mon Health Medical Center. When she isn’t in the studio or busy with work, you can find her baking in her kitchen, traveling to explore a new city, or, at the football stadium, cheering on the Mountaineers!

Yoga Teacher

Lexi began practicing yoga by taking teen yoga classes in her hometown. Yoga has become a part of her life ever since her teenage years as it is a great way for her to relieve stress, incorporate physical activity into her busy life, and continue to grow both physically and mentally. She completed her first 200-hr classical yoga teacher training in 2016, followed by a second 200-hr training in yoga and leadership in 2020. Outside of the studio, you can find Lexi studying for a Ph.D. in Exercise Physiology at West Virginia University. She continues studying exercise physiology, following a bachelor’s and master’s degree in it, because of her love for using movement as medicine. Her goal is to better define yoga as a form of physical activity to inform others of its numerous benefits! Lexi also enjoys spending time outdoors, engaging in other forms of physical activity, spending time with family, and going to Disney World.


Barre Instructor

I went through training at Suncrest yoga and has been certified in barre for almost a year. I received 250+ hours of hands on training based on terminology, choreography and anatomy with a focus on modifications and challenges for every level. With a background in 14 years of dancing and 2 years of teaching dance, barre was a fun way to infuse my dance experience and techniques with a workout. I love to inspire people through fun playlists, plank challenges, and emphasizing toning and flexibility exercises! 


Barre Instructor

Madison started taking barre in Charlotte, NC pre-pandemic. After moving back to her home state of West Virginia, she continued her barre practice at Empower Yoga & Fitness and quickly fell in love with the workout and the studio. She then decided to make the exciting leap to become an instructor. Madison is a mental health therapist in Morgantown and values taking care of your body as well as your mind. She enjoys the up beat pace of barre as well as the fun music and the friends she has made along the way!


Yoga Teacher

Mercy is a 200 HR Registered Yoga Teacher and Buti Yoga® certified Instructor. In addition to her passion for yoga, she is equally passionate about her other loves –pole fitness, running, Muay Thai kickboxing, and boxing.  She found yoga in 2011 in Houston, Texas following a yoga DVD to improve and recover from her Muay Thai and pole fitness training.  In 2012 she moved from Houston to Morgantown, WV and continued her yoga practice.  It was not until several years later, when she hit a difficult spot in life,  that yoga became much more to her than a physical practice.  Through sweat and hard work on her mat, she found space to breathe, to let all things go for the moment, to focus on the present, and to move with purpose. With her yoga practice, she found the mental clarity she needed to rise above the struggles she fought.  What she found in yoga she wanted to help others find.  In 2019 she found Suncrest Yoga’s teacher training program and became Yoga Alliance certified. Mercy’s classes are upbeat and offer plenty of opportunities for a challenge.


Yoga Teacher

Michele began practicing yoga in 2009 as a way to combat stress from graduate school and her current job as a WVU History professor, and to soothe sore muscles from cycling, running, and weightlifting. She practiced somewhat regularly upon moving to Morgantown in 2013, and decided to become a Yoga Alliance certified yoga instructor in 2016. Michele thought that teaching yoga was an extension of her day job and she has taught at Suncrest Yoga since 2016. Her classes are challenging and fun and reflect her outlook on life: if something is worth doing, sometimes it has to be a bit difficult. Michele is currently seeking her 500 hour Yoga Alliance certification. Her favorite yoga style for her own practice is Ashtanga. Michele splits her time between Morgantown, Europe, and Mexico, and in her free time enjoys playing with her dog Neil Young, photography, traveling, and of course, teaching yoga! 


Yoga Teacher

Rebecca was first introduced to yoga by a very good natured, relentless friend who insisted that she go to a yoga class with her. After some weeks of convincing, Rebecca reluctantly ended up in a hot vinyasa style flow class. After reaching a sweet, sweaty savasana (resting pose) at the end of class, she realized she couldn’t wait to come again. Because of this, Rebecca enjoys inviting the most skeptical of friends to come to yoga with her still to this day.

In 2019, Rebecca did a yoga teaching training with Nicole Yost Ross at Suncrest Yoga in hopes of furthering her own practice. During her time in the program, she also developed a passion for sharing the practice with others and will be completing a 95 hour children’s yoga teacher training in 2020. When attending a class with Rebecca, you can expect to find your breath, move mindfully through your practice, and focus on letting go of the tension that isn’t serving you on your mat.
When not in yoga, some of Rebecca’s other favorite things include reading, helping her rescue animals live their best lives, and sitting down alongside her husband, Jarrett, for a cup of a warm beverage.


Yoga Teacher

Sina found her passion for yoga after retiring as a collegiate athlete and struggling with movement following several injuries. Throughout the years, yoga has assisted Sina with reconnecting with her body, as well as supporting her performance as a recreational runner. Initially, Sina began her yoga teacher training out of personal interest, but soon realized that the principles of yoga could be applied to her work as a registered dietitian and certified intuitive eating counselor as well. Sina hopes to offer her students the opportunity to find their own yoga path, and take that path in their own way, at their own pace, and to modify when needed while honoring how they feel at all times.

Sina’s goal as an instructor is to meet every yogi where they are, whether that be just starting out or having a consistent practice for years. For Sina, yoga is about the balance between strength and flexibility, exertion, and releasing. Sina likes to combine both strength and mobility work in her flow style, while emphasizing breath & mindfulness.


Yoga Teacher

Suhil finished his 200 level teacher training in April 2015. Many local yogis have known him as the owner of Morgantown Power Yoga! He discovered yoga in 2013 with a suggestion of a friend. He got a hint of what this practice was all about in shavasana after a few classes. After that day, he dove head first into the cold water. Suhil’s yoga classes are a breath based power vinyasa flow that gives the practitioners the freedom to listen to themselves throughout the session. Each class is designed organically, at the same time, challenging, empowering and thawing you into your trustiness. In addition to yoga and meditation, Suhil’s other loves are fishing, hiking, traveling, reading, sharing smiles, cooking and eating.
