Cierra Burton

Cierra was born and raised in Chicago! Cierra’s background is in dance and she brings that knowledge of fluid movement and alignment into her classes through dynamic transitions and specific cues. She began her dedicated yoga practice in 2012 beginning with a Bikram challenge, learning she loved a heated practice but needed music and variety to drive her. When she ventured into a CPY HPF class she was hooked on yoga! Cierra completed her 200hr Yoga certification in 2014 and continued to become certified in Sculpt (Yoga with weights) and Hot sequences. Cierra continued her yoga education through Jason Crandell’s 300HR training in 2021 and Zen Yoga Garage’s Pre/Postnatal Yoga Teacher Training. She loves to bring powerful movements and soulful beats into her vinyasa classes and  intelligent flows and hip hop beats into her fitness classes. You can catch her on her mat at least 4 times a week and if she’s not there she’s moving her body somewhere! Her goal in teaching is to provide each student a platform to grow authentically in their practice both on and off the mat. Cierra has been a part of the Zen Management Team since 2020.

Marissa Tenekedes

Sixteen years ago, in the final surrender of savasana, tears began to run down the side of Marissa’s face, and it was then that she realized that yoga was much more than just a workout. The mind-body connection that this amazing practice ignites warmed her soul. She fell in love with how the practice empowered her to simply live in the present moment and let go of all expectations and self-doubt.

Her passion inspires her to create a comfortable, non-judgmental, high-vibing atmosphere of growth through sequencing, music, and body and breath awareness. Self and experiential exploration allow her to gain relatable knowledge that she believes creates a deeper student-teacher connection. It is Marissa’s sankalpa to spread joy and a new perspective with an open heart and an empathetic ear to her students and beyond.

Marissa has founded and managed many companies in and outside of the yoga/wellness world. She completed her 200hr YTT at Corepower Yoga is 2013, her sculpt certification in 2014, and just completed ZYG’s first ever 300hr YTT certification this year (2023). Marissa is also certified in teaching psychologically-sensitive yoga and is 100hr meditation certified.

Asher Waldron

Asher has always made an effort to balance his passion for both music and movement. Graduating with a Bachelor degree of Music Performance, he desired to take a break from music and dive deep into the world of Dance. His yoga journey began in 2010 during his time as a competitive Dancer and a HS Dance Teacher. He used his knowledge of the practice as a tool to incorporate mindfulness into the movement of his high school dance students. Although it was met with resistance, yoga soon became something the students looked forward to. After his move to Chicago in 2013, Asher began to take his personal practice more seriously and was eventually presented with another opportunity to teach young people mindfulness through movement as the Choreographer for the South Shore Drill Team. Working the practice into his rehearsals changed both the physical movements of the dancers and the way they approached challenges in rehearsals, performances and life in general. Asher began an academic approach to yoga in 2018 while working on his Master of Arts in Applied Music Pedagogy degree hoping to find inspiration for his Thesis subject, Clarinet Yoga: A Holistic Guide to Body Awareness in Clarinet Pedagogy. As a musician that was experiencing chronic pain, this was a subject that was imperative to his future as an artist. Taking his thirst for knowledge further, he joined the Zen YTT spring 2020 cohort. Finally there was an opportunity to combine his passion for music and movement with the joy of teaching and helping others in the community. Asher is looking forward to continuing this journey and can’t wait to inspire more people through Music, Movement and Mindfulness
