Daniella began taking hot yoga classes in her hometown of L.A. back in 2005. Once in PA, she continued her practice and became a Yoga Instructor in 2012 and co-owner of The Twisted Monkey by 2016. Daniella is also a school teacher, as well as a certified Birth and Postpartum Doula, mother to a beautiful teenage daughter, and a wife. She has found that these different roles are not just connected through yoga, but in her desire to help others achieve peace, confidence and empowerment. Daniella is passionate about spreading yoga’s message of non-judgement and love.
Natalie Hodak was bit by the yoga bug when she started attending The Twisted Monkey in early 2009 with friends…she’s been hooked ever since! She graduated from our very first Yoga Alliance approved Teacher Training in 2015 and currently teaches on Wednesdays. During both of her pregnancies, Natalie also loved teaching our Prenatal Yoga classes. When she is not attempting to put her leg behind her head (which still hasn’t happened) or perfecting her eagle, Natalie spends time with her family and friends.

Kimmy has been attending The Twisted Monkey since she was a teenager! Her love of yoga eventually led her to join TTM 200-hour teacher training in 2015. She is passionate about helping others reestablish the mind, body and spirit connection, as well as with the Earth. Kimmy also has a background in dance, gymmastics, working with children, and even farming! When she’s not teaching, you can find her baking just about anything in her home kitchen small business, KimmyMoreSweets. She loves to spend her free time with her daughter, son and husband.
Daphney stumbled upon The Twisted Monkey in 2016 and found her second home and community. She experienced comfort and relief at the studio while going through several surgeries and other health challenges. Daphney decided to sign up for the 200-hr certification program at TTM in 2018 to share her love of yoga and meditation with others suffering through chronic illness. Additionally, working as a high school teacher, she provides a safe haven for her students to practice meditation and pranayama techniques during the school day. Daphney appreciates her YTT instructors for their wisdom and guidance, and sends love to the Subaru crew for being her yoga family!
Kristin’s yoga journey began when a friend asked her to come to a class she was teaching at a local studio. It didn’t take long for her to become hooked! Yoga was the perfect complement to her busy schedule and athletic lifestyle. Kristin completed her 200-hr training in 2015. You can expect her classes to encompass a full body, mind, and spirit experience – and include a complementing playlist to each class theme. In addition to yoga, Kristin works as a physical education teacher at a local elementary school. When she is not working or teaching, Kristin is most likely spending time with her husband and son.
Coryn Voce, RYT 200
Coryn discovered yoga and meditation over 10 years ago as a college student struggling with anxiety. She was quickly comforted and inspired by the sense of self-acceptance and connectedness that yoga brought to her life. Through her work as a licensed therapist, teacher, and wellness enthusiast, Coryn is passionate about helping others find the inner peace and groundedness that she has found through yoga. She believes yoga is a path to self-discovery, contentment, and balance both on and off the mat and enjoys supporting others in that journey. Coryn has been a regular at The Twisted Monkey for years and completed her Teacher Training in 2020. In addition to yoga, Coryn loves spending time with her husband and cats, hiking, traveling, and trying new restaurants.
Jennifer Coe, RYT 200
Jenn began practicing yoga right here at The Twisted Monkey. She came to the studio hoping to relieve her symptoms of anxiety. She definitely found that…and so much more! She had been practicing for four years when she decided she wanted to deepen her practice and share her love of yoga with others. Jennifer completed our teacher training program in June 2018. She became certified with Yoga Alliance and loves teaching adults as well as kids. Being a full time elementary school teacher and a mom of 3, Jennifer appreciates how yoga helps her to relax and destress.
Pamela Costello, RYT 200, RPYT
An on again, off again yogi and former studio hopper, Pam came back to the mat and joined the teacher training program at The Twisted Monkey in 2017, where she finally found a home. Pam found her love for yoga after college as a way to get in shape and relieve stress from her day job as a clothing designer. She decided to pursue teacher training years later to learn more about the practice and to help others find balance in life. When not on the mat, Pam enjoys all things DIY (though only finishes half her projects), spending time with her husband, son and daughter, and loves to taste test her husband’s home-brewed beer and wine.
Beth Rose, RYT 200
Beth found yoga years ago while training for her first marathon. At first, she found the physical benefits of yoga appealing, but her passion quickly grew. Beth’s love of yoga was inspired by her father, Bill Henry, head “Guru” at the Twisted Monkey. He encouraged her to further her practice and enroll in the Yoga Teacher Training Program. Beth graduated in May 2020 and is eager to share her passion and hold space for students. Beth’s classes start out slow by settling into breath and body first but quickly build heat, strength and endurance. She creates a flow that will help you focus your mind, strengthen your body and rejuvenate your spirit. Expect a fun and lighthearted practice!
Deb Antosh, RYT 200
Since her sons were grown, she had no more sporting events to attend, and more free time, Deb was looking for something new to try. She saw an article on Yahoo about hot yoga. It sounded interesting. So, Debra and her husband looked for a local yoga studio and found The Twisted Monkey in 2015. She had never even tried regular yoga, but decided to give hot yoga a try. She was immediately hooked. Because of her love of yoga, Deb decided to enroll in teacher training. She completed the 200 hour training program at The Twisted Monkey in May of 2020. Deb’s class will start out slow, connecting to our breath, mind and body, then building heat, strength and endurance as we flow through our practice.
Theresa Hencek, RYT 200
Theresa began her Yoga journey in college as a way to manage stress and improve flexibility. She immediately fell in love with the challenging physical practice of Yoga, as well as the quiet that it brought to her mind. It was then that Theresa decided that Yoga was a practice she could not live without. Theresa has been practicing at The Twisted Monkey for many years and has loved the studio’s classes and community. She was inspired to enroll in a 200-hr Teacher Training Program in Sept 2021 and graduated in March 2022. This program helped Theresa realize her passion for teaching and is excited to share this with her students! As an artist, Theresa loves that Yoga has given her a new creative outlet where she can express herself through movement. Yoga is also a source of inspiration in Theresa’s artwork.
Mairead Nekkab, RYT 200
Mairead has attended TTM for over a decade. She has found Yoga to be amazing, sorting out hip issues stemming from years of restaurant & bar work. Certified as a Yoga instructor in 2018, BUTI instructor in 2020, and Kids Yoga instructor in 2021, Mairead uses music to guide her classes & incorporates lots of movement.

Ashley Coppola, RYT 200
As a personal trainer, and health fanatic, Ashley believed that yoga was one of the puzzle pieces missing from her resume which brought her to The Twisted Monkey’s teacher training in 2015. She shows her passion for helping people by sharing her experience of holistic healing and teaching others how to find their own path and become more self-aware. You will find her yoga classes largely focus on proper body alignment and simply “being present” in each asana (pose). Along with yoga, Ashley is also a Fitness & Wellness Consultant and CrossFit coach. In her free time, Ashley loves spending quality time in nature, with her 2 kids and dog, and friends and family.
