Embarking on the 200-hour yoga teacher training (YTT) at Mother Yoga was one of the best decisions I’ve made for myself. I went into YTT expecting to mainly focus on my physical practice. However, the training turned out to be about so much more... The physical practice was just a small part of the journey. YTT turned out to be much more about spiritual and emotional growth. After all, that is what yoga is about, and our physical practice is simply one of the many tools in yoga.

Meet the Teachers

Nancy Nomellini

Philosophy & Creative Sequencing

"I started this practice searching for a way out of the darkness that eventually turned into a life of service.  Growing up in a household filled with eastern philosophy, like most kids,  I didn't want anything to do with it! It's funny how everything eventually leads you right back home. The physical practice of yoga really guided me through many difficult parts of my journey. The body and breath became a refuge.  I began to really trust in the inner wisdom of myself and am still finding out more ways to express that creative spirit everyday!


Nancy is celebrated for her uplifting , creative and soulful teachings. Her classes are thoughtful, transformative and spiritually charged! She weaves in the dharma of yogic philosophy throughout her dynamic and creatively sequencing classes.



Hi I’m Carling! Seattle born & raised, I graduated from the University of Washington in 2010 with a liberal arts degree in History & Human Rights and am Mom to a wild little 4.5 year old girl who never stops reminding me why all the yoga really matters. I have been on the mat practicing for 15 years, and teaching for 13 of them. In the last decade+  I’ve traveled the world and circled the globe teaching as a nomad, leading workshops, practice intensives, yoga retreats, opening studios like Commune Yoga, and training hundreds of teachers in the Awakening Yoga method via my yoga school Awakening Yoga Academy. As a Gemini  Capricorn  Pisces , The Seeker and The Teacher (and maybe a little Shapeshifter too) archetypes are all big pieces of me both as a person and as an educator. 


A forever student and in technical terms am a ERYT-500, Registered Prenatal/Postnatal Teacher, Birth Doula, and FRS Sports Mobility Specialist. 


Valerie Starr


My name is Valerie Starr. I am obsessed with yoga. I love it because it’s a part of my healing process, a big piece of my creativity, my passion, my flame, my spirit. I love experiencing the capacity in which we can move our bodies and connect with breath as a spirit ritual.

To me, yoga is about creating space and unraveling the tangles in our body and mind, bringing clarity to the things that get out of focus, and deepening the relationship with self. Yoga is being with the crazy, complicated, playful, and joyful aspects of ourselves and loving them all the same.

Rob & Melissa


Husband and wife, Rob and Melissa, are from the Seattle area, but they travel extensively, leading kirtans, workshops and retreats around the world. They have shared their music at numerous yoga festivals in the US, including Bhakti Fest, Shakti Fest, Prana Fest, Samsara Fest, and the Northwest Yoga Feast.
