I discovered yoga as a teenager. I began my practice as a way of healing my body, but I began to sense that there was something even deeper in need of healing. In 2016 I took part in a 200-hour YTT with Suniti Dernovsek, through The People's Yoga. My personal practice and my teaching are very much evolving as I discover new ways of experiencing and embodying transformation through practice and study. My aim as a teacher is to provide an inclusive space where people of every age, demographic, and physical ability can discover a healing practice that is affordable, accessible, and supportive.
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.
Krista Carlson comes to yoga with a background in dance, running, and cycling, and has found in yoga a way to go deeper into the self and nurture the union between body and mind. After years of developing a personal practice, Krista was driven to share the benefits of yoga with others. Krista received their 200-hour RYT teaching certificate from Soul Shack Yoga and Wellness Studio in Los Angeles, California, training in Iyengar-based Hatha, Vinyasa, Yin and Restorative methods as well as the integration of sound healing, aromatherapy, Reiki, and Ayurveda into the Yoga practice. The program, led by Jessica Clark and Maygen Nicholson, emphasized an individualized approach within an inclusive healing environment. Krista is grateful for the growth yoga fosters each day, and strives to provide students with a safe and welcoming space to explore their own practice and honor the connection between breath and movement. Krista is dedicated to making benefits of Yoga accessible to all.
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.
As a teenager, Lydia loved to run and practiced tae kwon do. After a knee injury sidelined her for months, she discovered functional movement practices, such as yoga. While living in Montreal as a college student she studied Iyengar and Ashtanga simultaneously, learning breath, focus and alignment from two very different styles of yoga.
Lydia moved to Portland in 2010 where she began to practice vinyasa, dance and Booty Luv. This lead to her taking yoga teacher training through CorePower Yoga and learning to teach Booty Luv from Heather Craig. Now she teaches Booty Luv in the Portland area with an emphasis on functionality and fun.
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.
I was first introduced to yoga when I was twelve and my mother brought home a Kathy Smith Yoga VHS tape. From that point on I was hooked. I played competitive sports thru high school and college and I found yoga was unlike any other athletic endeavor I had experienced. There is no winning, losing or perfecting yoga. You come as you are to your mat and in the words of my teacher “yoga meets you where you are at.” In my 15 plus years of practice, yoga has served me in times when I most needed it and helped me transition and grow throughout my life. In 2014, I was inspired to take my practice a step further and went on to complete my 200 RYT Hatha Yoga training in Denver, CO thru Axis Yoga. After the birth of my first daughter, yoga stepped in again and helped my mind and body recover and it was at this point I knew I wanted to work with fellow women on their journey to motherhood. In 2017, I studied under the Bhaktishop’s Shana Celnicker-Chong and gained my training in Pre and post-natal yoga. I love connecting with community and strive to create a safe and welcoming place to practice.
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.
