For me yoga is an indescribable joy that permeates every aspect of my life – my relationships, the way I drive, the way I walk, or even just stand in line at the grocery store.
My passion is helping others find that spark and remember/reconnect to the beauty and brightness that is already within, through movement, breath work, deepened awareness, and play! For me stepping onto the path of yoga has been a magical journey of self-discovery, healing and delight. Yoga has helped me navigate motherhood and over 18 years of life’s ups and downs.
I have had the great privilege to study with amazing yoga teachers such as Kelley Rush, Ana Forrest and Shiva Rea. In 2001 I completed a transformational and rigorous Teacher’s Training with Ana Forrest. In August of 2012 I completed Ana Forrest’s intense Advanced Teacher’s Training, and in Spring 2014 Seane Corn’s Off the Mat into the World Training.
It is my cherished belief that the connections and community of friends we develop through this yoga practice of self discovery and love will manifest a brighter world for us all…
Cami is working on her 500 hours through Yoga Fit International. She has a Masters in Exercise Science through Seattle Pacific University and has been a Registered Dietitian since 1996. Her first interest in yoga originated due to her back pain from Scoliosis. Seeing the healing effects from yoga she decided to pursue her teaching certificate. Her long-term goal is in Yoga Therapy but her greatest accomplishment in life is being the mother of four healthy children. She currently is the teacher of the 9:30 am beginner class on Tuesdays and the 7:00 pm class on Mondays.
My passion for Yoga began with the birth of my children. I discovered how wonderful it felt to have the space to move, breath, and reflect during the challenging times of pregnancy, post-partum, and early parenthood.
Since that time I have slowly evolved my love of Yoga, both as a student and as an instructor. Yoga has been a way for me to stay fit, reconnect with my mental, physical, and emotional self, and find a quiet respite in a busy world.
As an instructor I have found enjoyment in encouraging students of all levels to move forward with their practice. I feel that each class provides an opportunity to become more connected with our own strength, our emotional selves, our breath, and a joyous expression of who we truly are.
“I believe in the body’s innate ability to heal. I strive to help each of my clients connect to their own healing potential through education, compassion and teaching body awareness whether we are in a yoga class, private session or massage”
Skye is a 200hr Registered Yoga Teacher and Licensed Massage Practitioner. She began practicing yoga twelve years ago and has experienced the health benefits and healing a daily yoga practice can add to your life. The connection of breath and movement helps bring brightness and fluidity to the body and mind. It was through the commitment to a daily yoga practice, pre and postnatal yoga and attending workshops that Skye began to understand more about the energetics of a complete yoga practice that encourages growth in both the physical body and mind. It is her passion to help people connect to the beautiful power that is within their spirit and body so they can live fully while sharing their brightness with the world.
The additional study of anatomy, kinesiology and injury treatment has given Skye a much deeper understanding of how she can continue to help her yoga students attain wellness through finding balance in their musculoskeletal structure. Over the last several years Skye has attended many workshops with senior and master teachers such as Sarah ThompsonBeyer,Troy Lucero, Shiva Rea and Ana Forrest. In October of 2011 she completed her 200 hr Forrest Yoga Teacher Training and completed Massage Therapist training at Northwest Academy for the Healing Arts in February of 2013.
A life-long athlete and nature enthusiast, Andrea was attracted to yoga in 2000 as a way to cross-train from running and heal from over-use injuries. She was challenged by the physicality of the postures and nurtured by the ability to release and find space both mentally and physically. The practice has supported her through numerous life transitions, personal evolutions, and physical ailments to become a transformative healing modality in her life.
Andrea approaches her mat on a daily basis as an opportunity to look, tune in, and become present, cultivating an attitude of compassion, courage, authentic connection, and love. Her passion and dedication to the practice lead to completing a 200-hr teacher certification with Tiffany Cruikshank in 2012. She is a RYT with the Yoga Alliance. Ongoing curiosity and interest in the diverse teachings and expressions of yoga both on and off the mat keep her inspired and constantly learning. Andrea loves to sing, dance, observe nature, and share her love of yoga with everyone she meets. Yoga continues to be an incredible force of mind, body, and spiritual healing in her life and she brings this passion to each and every class.
Yoga has been the absolute core of who I am and who I am always striving to be. Children naturally possess the gift of healing through laughter, joy and the purest of love. My desire is to teach children beautiful coping techniques, breathing exercises and yoga poses that open the mind, body and spirit all while having fun! I so look forward to practicing with and learning from all the amazing little people and families in our wonderful yoga community. ~Namaste Michelle
