Katherine Richardson, 200-HR RYT
Katherine Richardson is a 200-HR Certified Yoga Teacher; and corporate professional. In 2008 she fell in love with the yoga practice. Katherine practiced on and off since that year, taking a long break to invest in her family. Katherine fully came back to her practice in 2020 with a more mature family and freer schedule; she hasn’t looked backed since. Katherine recently completed her 200-HR YTT at We are One Yoga. Katherine is passionate about teaching and honored to share space on and off the mat.
Lyndsey Insani, 200-HR RYT
Hi! I completed my 200-HR Yoga Teacher Training at One in May 2023 and am excited to begin my teaching journey. I began practicing yoga in 2012 - I was a competition dancer all of my life up until then and needed an outlet to fill the expressive void in my life. Yoga became a constant for me during all of my schooling and I set my mind to yoga teacher training once life “settled down.”
I work at an accounting firm in Chicago and am a huge tax nerd. When I’m not nerding it up, you can find me walking my dog, traveling (or getting into trouble) with my husband, and reading a book in one sitting.
I am grateful to be given this opportunity and space to teach, learn, and grow at One, and cannot wait to share this practice together.
Lindsay Negrelli, 500-HR RYT, LMT
From a young age, Lindsay has always had a passion for helping people and was eventually drawn to massage therapy. After seeing the impact touch had, she began her journey to study and complete her certification in massage therapy from the Soma Institute of Chicago in 2008, and she has not looked back since.
Over the years she developed a love and passion for yoga and saw what a profound impact it had on her mind, body and spirit. She grew a desire to share it with others. She received her first 200hr certification from Yoga Mecca in August 2019 followed by a 300hr certification from ONE in August 2021. Lindsay is honored to join you in your healing journey.
When she is not in the studio or doing bodywork, Lindsay enjoys spending time at the local beaches, hiking, volunteering, or doing anything that involves her husband and two children. Her family are avid lovers of Disney World, and make it a point to get away whenever they are able.
Natalie Garcia, 200-HR RYT
Hello beautiful souls! My yoga story goes back to 2013 during a trip to Arizona when my friend invited me to join her hot yoga class. After the longest 90 minutes of my life, I walked out of that studio drenched in sweat, feeling a euphoric vibration radiating throughout my body. That experience was pivotal in how I began to heal myself. Throughout the years, my yoga practice helped me during many challenging aspects of life. When I began to work with the Reiki energy, I incorporated it in my yoga practice. As I experienced energetic shifts and released emotional blockages, I wanted to learn more. Cultivating a safe space where others could experience healing with self discovery and breath led me to the YTT program. I completed my 200-HR Certification Yoga Teacher Training in May of 2023 at One. I am also a certified Reiki Master & Animal Reiki Master through the International Center for Reiki Training and a Professional Member of the Reiki Membership Association.
In my personal time, my kids, boyfriend and animal family keep me busy. I have a daughter in college and a son in middle school. My fur and feathered family include dogs, cats, chickens & ducks. Latin dancing lights up my soul and I take classes regularly in Chicago. My Earth sign and inner empath desires the downtime in nature, so hiking at the Dunes is a great recharge for me. With all that being said, that brings me here in the present time, ready to guide others using breath, movement and Reiki. I look forward to seeing you on the mat! Namaste!
Danielle Ransom, 300-HR RYT
In Sanskrit, the word sangha means community. Being a part of, and contributing to, your community is of great importance across many religions and cultures, including yoga.
I first stepped onto my mat in 2009. As a child, I would always try to figure out the purpose of my existence. Four years ago, I made a promise to myself to make yoga a part of my everyday life. By keeping this promise and doing the work, I’ve found my purpose, service to others. I am here to offer my service, as a guide and to lead you, while you gather the power to heal yourself through slow, juicy movement, meditation, introspection and deep mind, body, soul work.
I love to encourage my students to listen to their bodies and take any dynamic movements that they are called to. By doing this, we can harness the ability to unbind blockages in our energy centers, creating more space to find our true, authentic selves.
The reason I step onto my mat is to elevate my consciousness and vibrational frequency and to heal wounds of all kinds. If you were to take away one thing from a practice with me, it would be safety. I offer a safe place to let it all go, to be seen, heard and held in a judgment-free space. Yoga is for everyone and all are welcome!
When I’m not practicing or teaching yoga I am soaking up every moment with my two children, at a concert, frolicking in the woods or on a mountain somewhere.
One of my favorite quotes is “It’s not about being able to touch your toes, it’s about what you learn on the way down”.
Kelly Bishop, 340-HR RYT, MSW, LCSW
I started practicing yoga over 30 years ago when I was a student at Indiana University. At that time there was no such thing as mats – we all learned and practiced in a vacant storefront on a big wool rug! Throughout the years I had left and returned to yoga until about fifteen years ago when I committed and really began to deepen my practice. I am so grateful that I did and that I became steady in my daily practice - as I truly believe and say so often that yoga saved my life in more ways than one.
I recently completed my 340hr advanced training at Devanadi School of Yoga and Wellness in Minneapolis with my teacher Tanya Boigenzahn where I have been initiated into the Sri Vidya tradition. I am deeply immersed in a lifetime study of Tantra, Sri Vidya and Ayurveda. My classes can at times be deeply devotional, heart-opening and infused with love as I am inspired by Bhakti Yoga. My teaching style is alignment and breath-oriented with a strong focus on personal energy movement and awareness. I truly enjoy assisting students to find the sweet balance between body, mind and breath. I feel honored to have taken several deep dive trainings with many masters including Leslie Kaminoff, Indu Arora, Lauren Toolin, Saul David Raye, Seane Corn, Desiree Rumbaugh, Bryan Kest and Rod Stryker. I have also trained with Leeann Carey to offer therapeutic restorative yoga.
I am deeply inspired by helping people to find their dharma/purpose and their personal path toward liberation and the great joy it brings! When I am not practicing and teaching yoga I am hanging out, preferably in nature, with my 2 sons and my dog June Carter.
Sierra LaFreniere-Dujmovich, B.Sc., B.Msc., 500-HR RYT, Reiki Master, Sound & Vibration Therapist, Trauma-Informed Instructor
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 2024.

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!
