Tetyana was born and raised in Ukraine and moved to the United States in summer of 2007, at the age of 20.
Growing up, she went to ballet and modern dance school and later started ballroom dancing, competing professionally in American Rhythm until recently.
During her student years in Kiev International University, Ukraine, she taught dance and Pilates. After earning her Bachelor’s Degree in International Relations she decided to move to the United States. Her journey in the US began in Steamboat Springs, Colorado where she solely practiced yoga while working in the corporate world.
In 2010, she moved to Las Vegas, NV for a new opportunity in her corporate job, living in a bigger city offered more chances to attend different yoga classes at several studios. She used yoga to help deal with her stressful work environment. The world of Mind-Body practice and her love of yoga instantly inspired her to drastically alter her career and become a yoga teacher. Tetyana attended yoga teacher training at one of the biggest studios on the West Coast, Vegas Hot and received her 200 hour RYT, 100 hour Power Vinyasa and Kettlebells certifications. She completed her Pilates Mat I & II training shortly thereafter.
“My yoga practice changed my life completely and made me the person I am right now. Every class I teach is like a ride for me, where I try to create an experience and help my students to understand the true meaning of mind-body connection.”
When Tetyana moved to Jacksonville, FL in 2011, she was fortunate to start teaching yoga at one of the boutique Pilates studio in Jacksonville Beach. Here she was introduced to Reformer Pilates and instantly fell in love with the apparatus, amazed with the incredible results of the Pilates Method that Reformer has to offer. She completed her Reformer 1 & 2 training with Pilates first generation master trainers in Tampa, FL through Balanced Body Institute and started teaching Reformer group classes and private sessions. Later she was certified in Reformer 3 and Pilates Chair. At the same time Tetyana started teaching Barre – the world’s newest fitness trend and became obsessed with its results.
At the age of 26, Tetyana established Everbalance – her pride and joy and greatest passion in life. In the process of opening the studio she was certified as a Barre Master Trainer through American Council of Exercise (ACE). She created her own barre program – Everbalance Barre – and is currently teaching courses and training new barre instructors at Everbalance in Jacksonville, FL.
“Everbalance is my dream, heart, and soul. I live it and breath it every day of my life. It’s been an amazing journey to get here and I am honored and humbled. It’s my privilege to welcome everyone who comes through the door and share my passion to Pilates, Yoga, and Barre.”
Jenna grew up outside of Phildelphia, PA. She played basketball in High School and received several collegiate scholarship offers. To help with her flexibility & stress of playing competitively, she fell in love with Yoga and Pilates. She continued her passion for health & wellness, and pursued a degree in Sports Medicine at West Chester University of Pennsylvania.
After marrying her husband, who was in the Navy, she moved with him to Virginia Beach, VA where she started personal training and teaching group exercise classes. She obtained several certifications thru the YMCA in Pilates, Cycling, Sports & Conditioning. Wanting to further her knowledge, she also obtained ACE Personal Training, Group Exercise, Health Coach, and Pilates & Yoga. After having 3 children in 4 years, she became passionate about helping other mothers regain core & pelvic stability and get back their pre-baby body. “I love to help other mothers regain their pre-pregnancy body thru Pilates and Barre. Nothing else helps to strengthen the core & pelvis quite like Pilates. Every mom needs this in their life.”
Jenna has also struggled with back and neck pain from car accidents over the last few years, and has had 3 laparoscopic surgeries for Endometriosis. She is passionate about helping others recover from injuries and health conditions thru Pilates and yoga. “Going thru injuries and health issues, has made me a better fitness instructor, because I now have greater empathy and understanding of what my clients are dealing with; not only physically, but also mentally how draining these issues can be.”
Jenna has lived in the Jacksonville area for 3 years, and has worked at several facilities instructing fitness classes and also managing several studios. Last year, she fell in love with Barre and got certified thru SCW Fitness. She loves Everbalance’s blend of Yoga, Barre & Pilates and is blessed to be apart of the team. Last year, she completed her Reformer 1&2 Training thru Balanced Body, and loves sharing her passion for the Reformer as it has helped her so much in rehabbing from a neck injury.
“I love being apart of a studio that strives to help people achieve balance in their lives… Balance in mind, body & spirit. This is a game changer for all of us, when we find true balance, and I’m blessed to be apart of that process for so many people.❤“
Sheri is an Air Force brat, who grew up in England, has lived in Oklahoma, Staten Island
NY, Spain, Italy as well as Arizona and has finally landed in Florida. Sheri started playing
softball in grade school and began swimming competitively in High School.
Sheri was introduced to her first yoga class in 2003.
“I understand the rigors that we place upon our bodies and the mind set to always push for
more even when the body is clearly telling us to slow down. I remember distinctly lying on
my back in Shavasana without experiencing any pain. It had been many years since I have
been able to lie completely flat on my back without pain”.
As she began to practice more regularly she began to recognize that the benefits of the
practice were more than physical, the mental shift allowed her to be more present in her
everyday life and to feel much more relaxed.
Sheri took a leap of faith in 2008; quit her corporate job, signed up for yoga teacher training
and began a new journey. Since the completion of her teacher training in 2009 she feels
blessed every day to be able to share yoga with others and honor their personal journey
while continuing her own. After joining Everbalance team, she experienced Pilates for the
first time and was hooked. She proceeded to obtain her Mat 1, Reformer 1 and Reformer 2
Pilates certifications in 2016 and absolutely loves teaching group and private sessions on the
"I find it amazing that I am so much stronger and flexible at this age now then I was when I
was 20. We are all much stronger than we give ourselves credit for, don't limit yourself.
You can't fail at yoga."

Dayana’s favorite yoga pose is tree pose, at the beach!
A few years ago, Dayana started searching for something that would help a bad day become a good day (no-no, not alcohol!). That was when she discovered yoga. Since her very first yoga class her life has been more purposeful, balanced and strong – like a tree.
Dayana obtained her yoga teacher certification from Yoga Den and likes to teach gentle flow classes for all levels. Her belief is that it is important to teach with compassion and gratitude for all students, as we learn from each other in this journey together.

Jennifer was born in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. She was a gymnast and cheerleader before heading to the University of Pittsburgh. The winters of the North slowly grew old so she ventured down South to Daytona Beach, FL where she met her husband and moved to Jacksonville, Fl. She and her husband own Bicycles Etc locally owned bicycle stores in town. Health and Fitness has always been a top priority in Jennifer’s life. After having 4 children within 5 years, instead of heading into hard core training to get her pre-baby body back, she chose Pilates, Yoga and Barre because of the therapeutic and gentle qualities of these kinds of workouts and they became her obsession. In 2012, she became certified in Mat 1 & 2 Pilates, Reformer 1 & 2 through Balanced Body. Barre has always been one of her favorites, so a friend who has taken the Barre Training at Everbalance and loved it referred her to the studio. After completing her Barre Certification at Everbalance she became a part of the Team and now Everbalance is a big part of her life. Jennifer loves her clients and they absolutely adore her. “Pilates, Yoga and Barre are for everyone. If every person, would just add 2-3 classes a week to their regular workout schedule whether it be Yoga classes, or a mixture of Mat and Reformer Pilates, they’d feel the amazing benefits within a minimal amount of time in their bodies, the amount of injuries, join pain and replacements as well as back pain would be greatly diminished. In my classes I like to focus on strengthening the core. Building a strong core is the foundation to being stronger and healthier as we age.”
Courtney currently calls Jacksonville, Florida her home after moving here from Louisville, Kentucky; where she studied for her Bachelor’s in studio art at the University of Louisville.

She has since found a small purpose in this life by healing others so they may heal themselves and those around them. “I believe that every person we come into contact with we affect in some way. By relieving the pain and stress from the body, people leave as happier individuals who will then spread good energy to the people they come into contact with.”
