"The intimacy of the Self is known through experience."



Born and raised in Seattle, Joseph completed his 200-hour teacher training at Mother Yoga, and enjoys sharing knowledge of both the physical practice and the philosophy of yoga with students. The beginning of Joseph's yoga journey marked a turning point in his life, and he hopes to introduce the practice to many others so that they may find similar benefits for the mind, body, and heart. 




Haley Rae is a dedicated yoga teacher and realtor who believes in the power of safe community spaces. She completed her 200hr Yoga Teacher Training in May 2018 and has been teaching ever since. In her classes, Haley focuses on the fusion of breath and movement, guiding her students to develop a deeper connection to their physical and emotional strength. Her philosophy of yoga is that it is a tool to prepare the body and mind for meditation, allowing participants to carry this sense of connection and strength into every moment of their lives. Haley strives to create inclusive classes for all levels, offering variations to challenge and explore the body.


Outside of her yoga practice, she extends her expertise as a wellness guide through her work as a realtor, helping people establish a sense of connection to their community and their homes. Through her yoga classes and real estate work, Haley is committed to helping others find a sense of belonging, both within their bodies and in their physical spaces.



As a seasoned technologist from India, I had the opportunity to learn from some of the greatest yoga teachers, including Regeesh Vattakandy and Mrinali Madhukar. I specialize in Hatha and Vinyasa.


As an artist, I am always exploring how to use my mind and body to their full potential through various forms of art and yoga. My curiosity about the science behind body movements and the brain led me to study and practice yoga, and I have come to believe that our bodies are capable of achieving almost anything if we can convince our minds to allow it.


I am grateful for the strength and energy that yoga brings into my life, and I am eager to share these benefits with others.

Yoga has provided me with a powerful way to re-member creativity, care, and community in every aspect of life. My classes are curious, safe, and imaginative experiences that help us come back to ourselves and each other — and release some pressure and expectations. I believe in the power of storytelling, and yoga as liberation that we co-create as lifelong students and teachers.



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 sun, Capricorn moon, Pisces rising , 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.
