Traci is 46 years old and a mother of 4. She has been married to her husband, Craig, for 26 years. Traci was drawn to yoga as part of her fitness journey. It was the strength and connected movements that peaked her interest. Exploring various transitions as well as inversions and arm balances are some of the most exciting aspects of her personal practice. Traci likes to incorporate strengthening drills within her flows and leads BUDOKON every Monday evening.

Lauren Morales, 500-HR RYT

I have been practicing yoga for about 9 years and received my first 200 hour certification from Yoga Mecca in August 2019 and my 300 hour certification from ONE in August 2021. Yoga has always been something I have enjoyed since first starting it on a borrowed mat in a gym. Yoga has become so special to me and I love learning its history and how it has evolved into what we know now. I hope to share the love, peacefulness and magic I feel every time I step onto my mat. I want everyone to know that yoga is for every body and is good for the soul.

Sherri Dujmovich, ONE Founder, 500-HR RYT, Trauma-Informed Instructor

I found the practice of yoga in the year 2002. Being married, mother of 3 little ones, working in Chicago and feeling totally depleted I was looking for peace, tranquility and deep spiritual connection. I began practicing with videos at home and quickly found myself waking up before my family to dedicate those early morning hours to peace, love and self care.

This led to family trips to Florida and Geneva for the Yoga Journal Conferences in order to practice "live" with the teachers on the videos. That led to a 200 hour teacher training with Don Wenig at Dancing Feet Yoga in 2010.

My hunger for experience continued to grow leading me to yoga retreats in Sedona, Nicaragua and Cuba with Seane Corn and Tulum with Saul David Raye. I've had the absolute pleasure to study with many master teachers including Mark Whitwell, Maty Ezraty, Shiva Rea and the list goes on.

I've spent the last 2 years studying the Priestess archtype through the Urban Priestess Mystery School with Ashley Turner and Sianna Sherman while taking a parallel program on the Pillars of Priestessing with Athena Perrakis as well. I intend to bring all of the magic I've absorbed from these incredible programs through my classes and workshops.

I am honored to share the practices of yoga and meditation with you and cannot wait for you to experience great joy in your life!

Jess Ramos, 500-HR RYT & Trauma-Informed Instructor

Yoga found me in the year 2015... I didn’t know it at the time but it was divine timing. There’s an ancient yogi saying “ when the student is ready , the teacher appears “. As a student , I was ready, and my teacher appeared.

I began my 200 hour certification under Catherine Ashton. This led to studying and becoming certified in kids yoga and studying trauma and becoming trauma certified under Yoga to Transform Trauma. I graduated from ONE's 300-HR Advanced Yoga Teacher Training in August 2021. The study of yoga, trauma, and metaphysics changed my life and answered many of my life’s questions that I didn’t even know I had. It brought a clarity into my life and my intention is to allow space for others to find clarity and healing in their lives through trauma informed/sensitive style of teaching, healing, and activism.

Theresa O'Neil, 500-HR RYT

Yoga and meditation help me nourish my inner strength and courage, softness and patience. My practice keeps my body healthy, my mind less crazy and my spirit connected with Universal Spirit. It’s helped me integrate my roles as a software executive, mom and wife, beach bum, hiker, cook and champagne enthusiast into one authentic ME.

I’ve been teaching since 2010, after completing a 200 hour training followed by a 300 hour training with my primary teacher, Don Wenig, along with my dear friend, Sherri. Since then I’ve maintained a (mostly) daily practice and have gained wisdom and inspiration from master teachers including Mark Whitwell, Gabriel Halpern, Sarah Powers, Girish, Sharon Salzberg and Shiva Rea.

Sierra LaFreniere-Dujmovich, 500-HR RYT, Reiki Master, Sound & Vibration Therapist, Trauma-Informed Instructor

My first foray into the yoga world was in 1999 when I was 3 years old - my aunt took me to Mommy (well, Aunt) and Me yoga classes. Unfortunately, I don’t remember much if anything from that, so I consider my REAL first experience with yoga to have occurred in 2012. I had just started dating my first real boyfriend (who is now my husband) and his mom, Sherri, taught yoga. She asked me one night if I wanted to come with her – I said yes, wanting to make a good impression. It was hard. But I wanted to do it more. I followed Sherri around like a little assistant, through all the places she taught. Finally, in 2017, she decided to open her own studio – ONE. And I was one of the first staff members on board.

 

In 2018, I graduated from Purdue University with a bachelor’s degree in biology, with a concentration in Animal Behavior and Evolution. During my time at Purdue I also dedicated time to studying the human bioenergetic field. Right after obtaining my degree, I was asked to become the studio manager of ONE, which I happily accepted. In January 2018, I was certified as an aerial yoga instructor with Holly Johnson of Aviana and a Trauma-Informed instructor with Hala Khouri. In 2019, I finally finished my long overdue 200-HR yoga teacher training, in the inaugural YTT class of ONE.

 

In 2018, I earned my Level I and II certifications in the Usui Reiki system, as well as a certification in sound therapy and aromatherapy. I completed my 300-HR RYT training as self-study through ONE. I have been certified to know the ins and outs of priestessing and leading ritual from Athena Perrakis (Sage Goddess) and currently practice within my roots as a Norse priestess. I was bestowed the title of Reiki Master in 2020, and I am currently enrolled in the University of Metaphysics’ Doctorate degree program, to graduate with a Ph.D. in Metaphysics in 2023.
