TEACHERS

ANGEL

Angel’s classes are rooted in her experience with meditation and yoga as tools to work through depression and anxiety, while also discovering inner strength and discipline along the way.

 

The grounding pace of her classes encourages and challenges beginners and experienced students alike. She believes there are as many ways to study and understand yoga as there are people in the world.

KARI

Kari's classes are diverse in perspective as she believes that at any given moment in your life you may need a very different kind of yoga. From strong and balanced, to slow and restorative, to family friendly she strives to create offerings that can fit many different facets of many diverse lives. One thing that unites all these classes is a true passion to create a bridge with each student where the destination is a more balanced mind, body,  spirit.

J.C.

J. C. incorporates ancient Indian philosophy into a vigorous, intro-level vinyasa class, with an emphasis on arm balances and inversions--your heart will get above your head!  His background as an attorney makes his classes structured and balanced. And it’s been said that he features some of the best music…

LUCIE

As a yoga teacher, my goal is to guide my students to a place where they can find peace and agency within their own bodies. We have all of the tools- it’s just about knowing how to utilize them. I am committed to furthering my education constantly, with a focus on inclusivity, social justice, and healing trauma. Fascinated by somatic patterns, I continue to study the ways our bodies hold onto our pasts, and how we can relieve unnecessary suffering through our movements and lifestyles.

  Her class style is soulful and rhythmic with an attention to authentic, heartfelt expression.

She believes that movement is joyful medicine, and that taking root in the center or our experiences is radical.

Bailey's classes incorporate embodied yoga philosophies, intelligent sequencing, and Spirit Flow from her 200 Hour RYT Certification through The Craft of Teaching Yoga.

 

Thirteen years of Vinyasa and Hatha yoga practice form the basis of Bailey's experience; her teaching style incorporates breath-by-breath movement, meditation and invigorating asana. Bailey hopes that students find peace, joy and introspection through her classes and that the magic of yoga can touch each of her students.

SHUJA

Shuja recently has invented his own style and lineage of yoga after having completed teacher training at Shakti Vinyasa, a Master Certification through International Sports Science Association and Trauma Informed Teaching through Yoga Behind Bars, where he is an active volunteer. 

 

Shuja has a natural gift for igniting the fire in each of his students — supporting them in finding the connection between their Mind, Body and Spirit; meeting them where they’re at; and challenging them to breathe through their individual edges — which allows them to grow beyond the limitations of their mind.

When she’s not teaching, you can find her cooking up some vegetarian meals and hiking with her partner & German Shepherd, Max, in Seattle, WA
