Movement has always been a passion of mine; whether it was running and dancing in my youth or hiking and teaching ballroom dancing as an adult and now chasing around my daughter, I have discovered a profound sense of joy and wonder in the flow of the body. Over the last ten years, yoga has become an integral part of nourishing my body and mind through breath, movement and mindfulness. I am honored to be a graduate from the Yoga Conservatory 200-hour teacher training program, under the loving
guidance of Kate Holly, Todd Jackson, Fawn Williams and Emily Light. As a teacher and a mother, I feel called to share yoga with all walks of life from babies to mature adults and especially families. In my classes, I hope to share laughter, joy and a sense of community with all my students.
Hanna Haas hails from San Francisco, California, and is a certified yoga teacher in Vinyasa and Yin Yoga, having trained with Jasmine Tarkeshi at Laughing Lotus in San Francisco and world-renowned Yin teacher Biff Mithoefer. Her classes weave numerous practices together- asana, mantra, meditation, pranyama, and music. Hanna has fun sequencing yoga classes that seek to both inspire and enliven, as well as ground and center her students. She uses the practice of yoga as a reminder to come back to the hOMe to the heart and seeks to spread this message of love in her classes. Hanna is also a musician and often sings her students into savasana. So far this journey of teaching yoga has only left her with deep gratitude and excitement towards sharing these practices with others.
I once entered a yoga studio, rolled out my mat, sat upright in a cross legged position, and listened to a stranger sitting at the front of the room as they instructed me to "Observe myself", but to do so without judgement. "What? That's possible?" Those words empowered me to think differently and live an entirely different life. I grew up playing competitive sports and joined in yoga classes in hopes of a workout and maintaining my active lifestyle. I found more. While managing a float tank center in Portland, I found that yoga was another tool that increased body awareness that helps promote healing and growth. I was offered an opportunity to complete a 200 hour teacher training at Yoga Union with Annie Adamson Vogt, where I was trained in the principles of Anusara Yoga, as well as participation in an apprenticeship in Annie's theory of yoga therapeutics. As I begin in this journey as a guide, I hope to bring a sense of humor and lightheartedness to class while providing instruction to keep students safe while exploring the practice of yoga.
Alissa began practicing yoga at the young age of 13. She quickly felt the magical powerful effects of the practice in her life. In 2011, she received her 200 hour yoga teacher certification in interdisciplinary Yoga from Yandara in Mexico.
Alissa believes yoga is a tool to discovering the many fascinating layers of the self. Through intentional connection to breath and movement Alissa’s goal as a yoga teacher is to guide her student’s towards finding balance and clarity in the body, mind, and spirit.
Alissa draws inspiration from many aspects of her life when teaching yoga. Her classes are a blend of clear alignment with joy and fun, and will invite you to take your yoga practice off of your mat and into your daily life.
She’s currently pursuing a massage and bodywork license from East West College. She is looking forward to integrating her extended knowledge of the human body into her classes.
April teaches yoga as a way to cultivate energetic as well as physical alignment. She approaches classes under this mind-body "hatha" philosophy, and incorporates elements of classical Iyengar-style yoga's slower movements, anatomy cues, and longer holds. At the personal level, yoga asanas and mindfulness practice has helped her overcome injuries and emotional hurdles. As a teacher, her intention is to inspire individuals and families at any level of the practice to expand themselves from the inside, out. She is a writer when she's not teaching yoga, and loves to bring elements of story into her classes. She spends her free time with her family and pup, anyplace seeped in the enchantments of Mother Nature.
Ingrid has been practicing yoga and somatic movement for over 15 years. She guides her classes with compassion and believes in facilitating an experience of being present in the body and connecting with one's sense of wholeness. You will usually find her with a gaggle of children riding her bicycle somewhere near Roseway. She is a longtime resident, PNW native and founder of Roseway Yoga.
My yoga journey began in 2014 through an attempt to recover from an ankle injury and quickly developed into a dedicated passion for the practice. Three years later I completed my RYT 200 at Dallas Yoga Center in Texas. My training was deeply rooted in anatomy as well as the mind, body, and spirit connection. I strive to place kindness, mindfulness, and playfulness at the core of all of my classes. For me, yoga has been a practice of learning self-love and my hope is to spread that awareness to all of my students.
I love hiking with my husky, a glass of wine with Game of Thrones, and adventuring with my partner.
My primary intention is to give my students the tools they need to serve their highest self.
I am a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT 200) with Yoga Alliance through Sonic Yoga in New York City. I came to Yoga in 2014 - or as I like to think, yoga came to me - during an emotionally difficult time in my life. Through yoga, I found the strength and balance I needed to get through that time. Ever since, my yoga practice has been guiding me through ups and downs, always reminding me to be present while keeping me balanced and energized. In 2016, I decided it was time to deepen my yoga practice. I offer energizing and balanced Vinyasa classes while I pay close attention to proper alignment while incorporating the philosophy of yoga.
Inspired by the tone and poise of professional dancers, I strived to find an exercise where I could harness my own version of that strength and grace. I discovered barre three years ago in Portland, Oregon and fell in love with it after my first class. Two years and hundreds of classes later I relocated to Costa Rica where I worked for the past year as a barre and strength training instructor at an outdoor gym in the Guanacáste Province. My classes engage in kinetic, mind-body movements and will bring a fire in your muscles while delivering incredibly fast results. We listen to old school hip hop, soothing electronic beats, classical music, and of course a couple of booty shaking songs to help you swing those hips and strengthen your core. In an hour and fifteen minutes you will work your entire body beginning with a warm up and ending with a relaxing series of stretches. Be sure to bring your water bottle, this class will leave your muscles with that "hurt so good" soreness after one session. *Se habla español.
