Amber is an artist and yoga instructor who began teaching to answer the call to a path of service. As an artist her work is often inspired by yoga philosophy, nature and spirituality. On the mat she teaches with focus on breath and alignment to safely build strength, flexibility and integrity of the body while maintaining a sense of grounding calm. Amber creates opportunity to explore a healthy challenge and edge in a safe, non-judgmental environment. As each person is an individual with unique needs, she offers variation and promotes intuitive expression to keep curiosity at any experience level. She resonates with the concept of self-observation on the mat serving as a mirror into the daily self. With a playful and lighthearted approach, her goal is to create a loving space for introspection while providing tools of breath and body to integrate
the sweetness of yoga into daily life.

Deirdre brings her passion for optimizing the human experience to the mat. The greatest challenge she sees in herself and others is people simply wanting to be more comfortable in their lives and skins, wanting to feel safe, strong, grounded, resilient and clear minded. She brings 25 years of experience in health and wellness, including 12 years teaching yoga and therapeutic movement, to her classes. Here Deirdre supports “coming back home” to our best selves through breath, movement, a safe environment and irreverent humor. While Deirdre’s teaching foundation is in the Viniyoga tradition and in Aston Kinetics, she incorporates the influences of many teachers and paths, favoring an eclectic approach. This includes a breath focused practice, mini flows alternating with holds, conditioning, restoring and whatever meets the needs of the students before her on a given day. Together they shape the class. All are welcome. Modifications and options are freely offered.
Janiece’s love for yoga sparked in high school when she and her mom tried a yoga studio by their home. Immediately she fell in love with its calming and restoring nature, and carried her practice through college and into adulthood. Yoga has played a huge role in helping her manage stress and anxiety. It continues to be a reminder to be immersed and grounded in the present moment. Her style primarily gravitates towards a gentle, yin style, and over the years she has developed a deep appreciation of practicing meditation and mindfulness.
In 2016 she began working as a birth and postpartum doula and soon blended her birth work with yoga by completing a Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training through Synergy Yoga in Seattle. She is excited to bring her knowledge of birth into her yoga teaching. So many of the techniques she has learned through yoga are highly applicable in aiding labor and postpartum period. Though birth is a large focus of hers, she believes yoga can benefit everyone in any stage of life and enjoys teaching all ages. Her classes are light-hearted, and encourage an environment of self-love, kindness and respect. You can find her website at www.sukhabirth.com.
Jenny began practicing yoga 14 years ago looking for a physical challenge until she realized one day in pigeon pose, how much deeper this practice truly was. She became certified to teach in 2009, wanting to share the joy and meditation of these movements with all. She believes in making yoga accessible to everyone, encouraging students to listen to their bodies in the exploration of personal and physical limits. Jenny’s inspired classes are flow based with attention to alignment and the inner teacher.
Karyn became a certified yoga teacher in 2016 through Synergy Yoga School in Seattle.
Maria has completed two 200 RYT and specializes in using yoga as a therapeutic and healing modality.
Richelle has been immersed in the work of the body for 22+ years, from sports medicine to the sciences of therapeutic and clinical massage, energy work, bio-mechanics, nutrition, and yoga. She has developed and taught teacher training curriculum in programs across the USA and Canada to offer yoga teachers and teacher-trainees an expanded knowledge of functional anatomy. Richelle's approach to teaching yoga is deliberate, intentional and precise. Her classes incorporate some slow flowing transitions, but her focus is on building finite awareness from within, building strength slowly over time and finding the alignment that is perfect for each individual body. Her yoga study has varied from Ashtanga to Vinyasa Flow to more traditional Hatha practices and she subscribes to no particular style. She'd rather each person find their home in their own body/mind/spirit, finding their center through their own perspective and individual differences, and protecting themselves from injury along the way.
