Revive Sports Recovery

Revive Sports Recovery has been in the works for a long time for local soft-tissue therapists Steven Mason and Blake Mundell.

Compass Yoga
5714 Edmondson Pike #2b, Nashville, TN 37211
Compass Yoga was conceived because its owner, Rebecca, had met so many people who are interested in yoga, but were not sure where to start. Her goal is to make yoga accessible to as many people as possible through studio classes, private lessons, corporate yoga events, and anything else you might dream up. Her mission with Compass Yoga is to create a more peaceful world by teaching people how to find happiness in their daily lives. When asked about her teaching style, Rebecca says, “I want to make yoga simple and approachable for everybody so everyone can develop the benefits of the practice without feeling incapable, overwhelmed, or frustrated. I will not ask you to make radical changes that are confusing or potentially harmful. I will teach you to form a deeper connection with yourself and those around you so that you can be confident in who you are. I want to inspire you to be the best version of yourself.”

Certified Yoga Teachers of TN (CYTTN)

138 Belle Forest Circle, Nashville, TN 37221
If you’re a certified yoga teacher or studio owner, you will definitely want to connect with Nashville native Misti Jackson-Derringer, founder of a hip, new leadership network for teachers and studios, called CYTTN. After getting certified, Misti found herself asking “now what?” and looking for help. “I didn’t know how to connect the dots to use my certification to the fullest potential.” After sharing her struggles, other teachers started reaching out for her help in co-creation. Misti took a leap, opened a studio (PATHFINDERS) and started Certified Yoga Teachers of TN. CYTTN is the first network to represent, a national leadership network that plants local roots to bridge the gap between certification and full leadership potential. “The purpose is to connect teachers, offer support, and fully empower their journey. We provide weekly classes and continuing education exclusively to RYTs/CYTs, teachers in training and those on the path to certification.” CYTTN is not only the answer to the “now what” question for teachers, they also support studios in defining their company vision as well as developing more dynamic and structured teacher trainings to exceed industry standards and guidelines. Misti says her passion is to meet teachers and studio owners, hear about their dreams, and coach them toward reaching those dreams as leaders in our yoga community. Check out PATHFINDERSyoga on MindBody for a list of weekly teacher classes. If you want to host a CYTTN class at your studio and to become a member, visit

Rhythm Running
