Jackie Woinski
After first paddling out on a surfboard when she was thirteen, Jackie immediately knew she would fall in love with surfing. Now attending the University of Delaware and majoring in Dietetics, she misses the ocean way too much to be away for even one day. When she isnĀ“t helping instruct future professional surfers, you can find Jackie surfing her favorite local spot at Cape Henlopen State Park - where the water is warm, the dolphins are playful and the waves roll right in (most days).

Erin Shivone - Yoga Instructor
Erin's love of yoga began in 2000 in a small studio in Upper Height Ashbury, San Francisco. Since then she has bounced around setting up roots in San Francisco, DC, NYC, Italy, Spain and eventually Hawaii. In Hawaii Erin practiced at the Aloha Kula Yoga studio under Brigitte Snyder, a student of Rodney Yee. There at the Aloha Kula she completed her 200 hr RYT training in a Vinyasa style, Iyengar based course. Living in a surfing community Erin began to see many similarities between surfing and yoga. Whether flowing on your mat or board both bring peace, clarity and pure bliss. Surfers and yogis alike seek Santosha, true contentment.
Also a massage therapist Erin likes to bring yoga into her sessions. The two work hand in hand bringing a heightened sense of awareness into the body and facilitating a healing process. Erin's other job is being a mommy to two beautiful little boys.
