She Collective Community Partners
ATNSC: Center for Healing & Creative Leadership
ATNSC at Kahyonh:áke*, is an urban gathering space in Northeast Ohio where healing, learning, creating and leading through a lens of wholistic transformation is the focus of our work. We are located in the historic Buckeye-Shaker community.
We believe sustainable community change begins with the health and well-being of its members. We believe access to alternative health modalities within a neighborhood, access to information and diverse ideas are critical to building momentum and capacity within a community. It increases innovation, community organizing effectiveness and cultivates the creativity needed to address local community concerns.

Jessie Bennett Santiago
In 2011, a good friend of mine told me about a Friday night Punk Rock yoga class taught by Lyz Bly. Very pregnant at the time and awkwardly seeking movement of some kind, I went along with her. Week by week I showed up and was deeply intrigued by both the physical and emotional shifts I was feeling. I also loved the way I was encouraged to find my edge and sit in that fire. It has become a motto for my life. After many years of practicing, my desire to deepen my practice motivated me to become a teacher. I completed my soulful 200 hr YTT under Kimberly Payne of Gathering Tree Yoga. I love to create classes that marry eclectic music, movement, incite emotion, and maintain the space to feel fully without shame. My training strengthened my love for yin, restorative and all levels yoga practice.
