My name is Kimber I enjoy yoga very much so I traveled to India to study yoga @ its roots in 2012. I taught my first yoga class in India on the early morning of July 8th, 2012 in Surya Hall. I was lottery picked to teach on the day my dad died years ago. My early morning class was peaceful and the sun was just beginning to shine. That evening my friends class was during a monsoon. That’s how quickly the weather changes in India. I have been teaching for seven years now. The school I attended is an international yoga school RYS Rishikesh Yog Peeth. This picture was taken close to my school in Rishikesh at a local restaurant in India. Of course I went to India for the training of yoga but also for the experience of the culture and the wonderful spicy flavorful art of Indian Food. I have my 200 hour international certification and am registered with yoga alliance. I enjoy being creative and fun in my classes ,I teach yoga basics to a flowing vinyasa . I also teach yin/restore. My yoga classes begin with a great warm up and end with a relaxing savasana. I am a Mother and Grandmother. I work in my community as a Kitchen Manager in the Snohomish School District and Teach Yoga After School.

What started as an exploratory class in college quickly blossomed into a daily practice. Yoga has made me stronger physically, emotionally, and spiritually. It has prepared my body and seen me safely through five pregnancies. Yoga has revitalized my body during times of debilitating suffering due to chronic illness. It has lifted my spirits and reminded me to breathe when nothing else could. My passion for yoga led me to become certified at the 200 level through yogaspirit® Studios. What I love most about yoga is that it is a never-ending journey, with continual opportunities to delve deeper into the practice. I plan on continuing my studies to become a Yoga Therapist. I live in Lake Stevens with my husband, 5 children, numerous pets and love enjoying all the outdoor activities the PNW has to offer.

“YOGA, BECAUSE SOME QUESTIONS CANNOT BE ANSWERED BY GOOGLE “- ANONYMOUS
All my life I was a very active person. In fact, I have been a figure skater since I was three years old and spent at least two hours a day at the gym as long as I can remember. I used to push myself and run and flex to the point of breaking, thinking all the while that it was what I was supposed to be doing to be healthy. I thought I was in good shape, so it was a big surprise when I got diagnosed with an auto-immune condition that attacks your thyroid first, makes your heart race, hands shake, and makes you lose or gain weight faster than you can imagine. At 5’1 I weighed 115 pounds at the time of diagnosis, and about 160 pounds three months later (ouch!).
I knew I needed something more than just changing my diet, I needed something that would heal my spirit and transform my body alignment; something that would allow for physical exercise but also provide mental and emotional support. This is when I met Kimber and started studying yoga. Little did I know that Yoga practice would give me all of that and more. Not only am I able to do Asanas and teach yoga, but I also hope that my journey and experience will inspire you to be a fighter and develop a robust interest in your well-being, self-discovery and of course Yoga. At the same time, I am grateful for the opportunity to give this knowledge back to the community, my students and visitors! Namaste and much happiness.
Back when “Jazzercise” was popular the class I was taking was followed by a yoga class. I had always been curious about yoga so I decided to stay after and take a class. Everything changed during that class. I found the poses relieving and revealing. These poses seemed natural and familiar. I was hooked. Even when I was not doing a weekly practice. I found myself doing poses during the day, chair pose while brushing my teeth, warrior poses while walking the dog, and shoulder pose just because I needed to bend that way! I enjoy teaching evening classes to help you relax and end your day with a feeling of accomplishment and also kindness. Be thankful that you took time out of the day for you, and your body in turn will thank you for taking the time to nurture and care for your mind, body and soul.
WHEN I AM NOT DOING YOGA I ENJOY TIME WITH MY GRAND CHILDREN AND HUSBAND. AND HELPING PEOPLE FIND THEIR FOREVER HOME IN THE REAL ESTATE BUSINESS.
My name is Melissa. I entered the world of yoga with the primary goal of stress reduction. As a wife and full time working mother of two I often found myself ignoring what my body and mind needed. Yoga provided me with an opportunity to pause, reflect and tune in. I pursued my Yoga Teacher certification with the goal of learning how to do the asanas as well as learning about the physical and spiritual elements of the poses. My yoga practice has provided me with a peace of mind and the ability to better manage my physical and mental well-being. As a teacher, one of my goals is to share my knowledge and inspire others to dive into the world of Yoga. I want my students to have fun, to laugh, to breath and to develop their practice by paying attention to how their body feels. It is easy to get caught up in doing a pose correctly, however, the most important element with Yoga is paying attention to how your body feels and to not push what does not feel good. In my class, I love to combine creative sequencing, a spirit of playfulness, a dose of inspiration, and occasionally the beautiful sound of a Tibetan singing bowl. My hope is that students step off their mats feeling refreshed, nourished and balanced.
I LOOK FORWARD TO MEETING YOU - NAMASTE.
When I first stepped onto my yoga mat some years ago in a class full of similar souls, I felt a kinship. As it turned out, I discovered my tribe. I love yoga not only for the wonderful physical results asana delivers but for the journey of discovery. My consistent joyful practice has gently led me to discover me!
For me, yoga does it all—physically, spiritually and emotionally. Connecting body to mind, mind to heart and breath to movement is meditation like no other. But, it’s also the sacred community that develops when people consistently come together to practice yoga that keeps me coming back to my mat again and again.
I found inspiration from many of my teachers through the years, and in 2017 decided it was time for me to bring my practice to another level to become a 200 RYT. My Ashtanga-based teacher training continued to evolve my love for Vinyasa yoga, linking breath to movement to music. It also encouraged my belief in a balanced yoga practice that includes a broad range of yoga styles…Today, I work with students to suit whatever individual needs they bring to their mats on any particular day.
I LOOK FORWARD TO WORKING WITH YOU AND CONTINUING THE JOURNEY.
I discovered yoga after years of weight training and running marathons. All my exercise made me tight and knotted up. After my first few sessions of yoga, I felt such a difference in not only in my body but also my mind. Where my training in the gym and on the pavement pounded my body, yoga was able to nourish and restore my body. I quickly fell in love with yoga! I then began the pursuit of educating myself to bring yoga to my personal training clients so they too could experience the wonderful benefits. I have had the honor of servicing my clients in the Lake Stevens area for over 20 years! I am excited to see you in class!

Yoga has a way of finding people when they need it most. I truly began to explore yoga after anxiety started overwhelming my life. Coming into my adult life I couldn't keep it together, panic attacks were a daily for me and yoga was the only cure. After attaining my 200ryt in October 2018 through yoga spirit it finally became clear why I endured what I did. The peace that yoga has brought me was more than I could have ever imagined and my goal as a teacher is to share that peace with others. Asana and pranayama really help heal the busy lifestyle we are all swarmed by but, it is in the spiritual practice that we truly find ourselves. I love exploring the depths of yoga and the lessons it has to offer. Yoga has been my guiding light for many years and will be for the rest of my life.
I LOVE TEACHING FORM BASED CLASSES TO AWAKEN NEW DEPTHS TO OTHER'S PRACTICE AND I LOVE SPARKING THE MINDS OF YOUNG SOULS TO FIND THEIR INNER LIGHT.
