Meet our teachers- Devon Schmidt and Elisabeth Hulsman

Devon Schmidt, Certified Aromatherapist, ERYT-500

In 2003, while pursuing studies at CCAD, Devon Schmidt found solace and inspiration in Hatha yoga classes at the downtown Columbus YMCA. Captivated by the physical and mental benefits of yoga, she embarked on a journey that would lead her to become a dedicated yoga teacher.

Devon’s commitment to her craft led her to complete the World Peace Yoga 200hr Teacher Training Program in 2010 and the 300hr Advanced Teacher Training Program at Yoga On High in 2016, earning her designation as an ERYT-500 with Yoga Alliance. Along the way, she pursued specialized trainings in prenatal yoga, Yoga Therapy, Yoga Nidra, Ayurveda, and Thai Yoga Massage, enriching her practice and teaching methodology.

In 2011, Devon founded Day Yoga Studio in Dayton, Ohio, a sanctuary for yoga and wellness services that has since expanded to multiple locations. As a teacher, workshop facilitator, and co-director of teacher training programs, Devon shares her passion for yoga with her community, integrating diverse yoga styles and spiritual wisdom into her classes. Despite her busy schedule, she remains grounded in her role as a mother to four children.
