Concierge Yoga & Fitness, LLC was created to bring a personal and welcoming environment into the exercise industry. Life can be overwhelming and usually the first thing neglected is self-care. It is our desire to expand this personal service into a studio setting offering small group classes with the intention of helping all that enter to feel comfortable with themselves and their current fitness level.
Finding your path
Concierge Yoga and Fitness is designed to bring all your fitness desires, including your psyche, to you. My goal is to save you time by coming to you. The hardest part of starting a fitness program is showing up. Eliminating travel, parking and schedules allows you to find the time to take care of you. My mantra is “Let no one ever come to you without going away better and happier.”
– Mother Teresa.
I hope to teach you a new awareness of your body, mind, and spirit. I also hope that you’ll gain the knowledge and the ability to push yourself to new limits in each discipline. I take a very balanced and open approach to fitness and yoga. Cultivating a practice that meets your needs and blends with your personality, hopes, and goals. Our new studio is at 213 S. 2nd Street, Suite 6, Flagler Beach, FL 32136
Namaste and blessings, friends.
Instructor - Linda Carpenter
I maintain a 200 RYT Master Instructor certification from Greg Turner of Yoga Steps® (Yoga Alliance approved). In addition, I hold ACE certifications in Personal Training, Group Exercise Instructor, Fitness, Certification for Fitness Nutrition, and Barre Intensity®. I received my aerial yoga certification from AerialYogaRx. I have been practicing and teaching yoga and group fitness for over 8 years. I incorporated personal training over 2 years ago and have been adding the additional certifications since then.
I am originally from Miami, FL. I lived a briefly in Bath, NH and then Birmingham, AL. It was in Alabama that I rediscovered my love for yoga. When I began my certification it was the intention of learning what was transpiring within myself as I moved through my practice. The teaching part just sort of happened. In addition to teaching at the YMCA, and providing one-on-one lessons, I was a volunteer yoga instructor for a special group of women with invasive breast cancer through Susan G. Komen. It was so uplifting for me because no matter what they were enduring they still found something positive. They always found some reason to move forward. These women will always be an example for
me to put my best foot forward and show up.

Instructor - Jasmine Estevez
Jasmine initially started her teacher training to further her own knowledge and practice. Her love for the practice started with her first Ashtanga class in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. She noticed how the practice of yoga, on and off the mat, altered her life in such a positive way, she felt compelled to share it with others. Jasmine earned her 200-hour yoga teacher training in 2017, specializing in Vinyasa. She is also a registered yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance. Prior to her certification, she practiced for 5 years with instructors who directly trained under Sir Dharma Mittra. She has partnered with local community business's and lead classes to help bring awareness to women's health, with nonprofit organizations such as Susan G Komen.
Her teaching style incorporates alignment, moving with intention and honoring the body, while connecting it with your breath. It wasn't until years into her personal practice she realized how to correctly breath and it completely changed how she moved through each asana and how she teaches. She has worked with students of different levels and starts each class diving into breathing techniques. She is dedicated to being a yoga practitioner by continuously attending workshops to further her practice and to safely guide each one of her students through their yoga journey.
