There are three partners in sault108...
Traci Lee here, I am a yoga teacher and bodyworker in private practice for over 13 years. Introduced to Hatha Yoga in the late nineties, I am thankful to have 20 plus years of study and practice in Anusara, Classical Hatha, and Hatha Vinyasa Yoga. I very much honor the time I've spent and continue on with masters studying asana, philosophy and meditation. I bow to John Friend, Erich Schiffman, Desiree Rumbaugh, Douglas Brooks, Thom Knoles, Darren Rhodes, Christina Sell, and Noah Maze, as these teachers are guides to the formation and foundation of my body of yoga knowledge. I deeply value staying in active mentorship and am currently working with Livia-Cohen Shapiro, MA. And, remain in active cohorts and collaboration with friend and teacher Gina Minyard, E-RYT. I am a journeyman, remaining a student for over 10 years until after many requests, with much respect and out of humility, took the seat of teacher. My aim is to offer challenging, playful and informative classes giving attention to both alignment and flow, while weaving in mantra, meditation, and philosophy. Since 2004, I have opened, owned, and directed two successful yoga studios, created and led workshops, retreats and corporate retreats in the southeast and abroad, offered support to numerous athletic apparel lines for example, via product testing, promotion and written evaluations for Ralph Lauren’s RLX line and by hosting community product testing events and promotions for lululemon. In my home studio currently, I am proud to represent manduka, jade, RYU and am a strategic sales partner with lululemon athletica.
Partner, Kent Elsbree, founder of Club America Vacations, in the early eighties and nineties provided scheduled and chartered air for hundreds of thousands of travelers throughout the Caribbean and the Americas. Today, Kent is the president of a charter airlines operation company, providing services to professional sports teams and special interest groups. Kent brings his vast expertise in hotel negotiations, travel destinations, and airline operations to sault108.
Tom Harrison, is a designer with a vast background in travel. As president of Harrison Resort Sales, representing Sea Pines Resort, SC, Kaanapali, Maui, ski properties in Aspen, Vail and Snowmass, Co. as well as, African Safaris, Tom developed extensive experience in destination travel and was involved in location fashion shoots on behalf of Macy's, Ralph Lauren and Parisians department stores among others. During this time, Tom and Kent met and partnered in an air charter program for skiers visiting the Colorado resorts. This partnership established in the early 80’s grew as Tom joined Kent in his Carribbean operations. The two have continued to partner on many levels over forty years. Tom and Traci met, of course through yoga, and have been friends since 2008. In 2014, the two partnered on Kali Yoga, a boutique yoga studio, in the resort area of Lake Oconee. This partnership and a shared adventurous spirit naturally unfolded the beginning of sault108 in early 2016.
