Inspired by the invitation yoga offers to practice and grow in community, Amalia’s classes explore self awareness alongside awareness of the larger ecosystem, with humor, creativity, and heart. In practice with Amalia, you can expect a balance of fluid movements and strength building sequences, alongside traditional asana, yogic philosophy, chanting, pranayama, and deep relaxation.

Amalia studied with Sarahjoy Marsh at the DAYA foundation in Portland OR and completed her 200 hour teacher training with a focus on mindfulness, neuroscience, and Ayurveda. A personal interest in the intersections of yoga and social justice led her to study accessible, inclusive, and contextualized yoga practices. Some of her ongoing teachers include Dianne Bondy and Amber Karnes of “Yoga For All”, Michelle C. Johnson of “Skill in Action”, and “Finding Refuge”, and Susanna Barkataki, creator of the “Honor, Don’t Appropriate Yoga Summit”, and “Honor Yoga’s Roots” teacher trainings and workshops.

Amalia keeps her knowledge of the complex and wondrous human body growing, studying anatomy, biomechanics, functional movement, and yoga therapy. A native Oregonian, musician, mom of twins, movement nerd, and lover of cookbooks, Amalia offers a nurturing space for students to tune in to their own deep reservoir of strength and stillness.



With a working definition of yoga as “moving meditation” and a mindfulness practice, Anders emphasizes the mind-body connection, present moment awareness and curiosity in his teaching. He went through yoga teacher training in Scott Anderson’s Alignment Yoga in 2018 and has been teaching part time since then. After nearly 20 years working in the healthcare field in quality improvement roles, he now works as leadership coach and facilitator with an emphasis on wellbeing, burnout and compassion fatigue. Usually, he’s in the middle of a book on yoga, neuroscience, meditation or burnout, with a growing appreciation for the deep history and wisdom of yoga, and noting with delight the increasing scientific evidence in support of yoga, mindfulness and meditation practices.

Her teaching is grounded in her own experiential knowledge and keen observation of her students. With a teaching style of positivity, passion and persistence, she supports her students’ on their path to holistic health and inner peace through precise instruction, progressive poses and simultaneously invigorating and relaxing classes. 



Anne has practiced yoga for almost 40 years. She believes the greatest teacher is the one students find in themselves, when they creatively explore and viscerally understand their body’s own unique patterns and experiences. Yoga has been central to Anne’s ability to engage in vigorous physical activities, while creating harmony with past injuries and chronic pain.

Anne has two 200-hour RYT certifications, including a 100-hour Anusara Immersion, with Sandy Adler and Michele Bulgatz, as well as teacher training with Sarahjoy Marsh. Anne also trained in Yoga Nidra with Lisa Namyet and obtained her certificate as a Bo Yoga Instructor with Nate Guadagni. As a teacher, Anne leads her classes in slow and deliberate rhythms that allow for self-awareness and deep experiences of integration and alignment. Anne has a BA in South Asian Languages and Indian Epic Literature (Mahabharata and Ramayana), studied Hindi, Urdu, and Sanskrit and lived in South Asia. Anne has an MA in Third World Development, is an attorney, a Certified Presence-Based® Coach and is also a certified mediator who works with Eugene’s Center for Dialogue and Resolution.



Throughout my years of practicing and teaching yoga my relationship to the teachings have grown. What started as a physical practice has become a skill set for me that I practice on my mat to bring out into my daily life. It is a mirror where I can reflect honestly and compassionately.

I completed my original 200hr YTT in 2011 at White Lotus Foundation in Santa Barbara, CA with Ganga White and Tracy Rich. The training inspired me to continue learning with many teachers including SarahJoy Marsh and Scott Anderson.

I draw from yoga philosophy, movement studies, anatomy, ten years of teaching experience and my own practice to weave together classes that are grounding, exploratory and fun. My intention is to use movement and physical expression as a tool for deeper self inquiry and meditation.



Brie is passionate about teaching yoga because she loves humans! “It’s an honor to support people in their self-discovery, in finding a gentle pathway into themselves. Holding a safe space, one that gives permission to explore what it feels like to be fully embodied is one of the best parts about being a yoga teacher. To submerge in the joy of community while supporting a practice of radical self-acceptance, carried by the collective breath is awesome! (and important, scary, and beautiful!). I love that my “job” is to offer that point of reflection back to people’s own strength and capacity, especially in the aging body.”

Brie is a certified 500hr RYT in yoga therapy and several other specialized certificates. She has been teaching yoga for fifteen years. Brie practices asana almost every day and LOVES attending regular studio classes around town! She is a life-long learner and has a passion for continuing education. Much of what she offers her students comes from the explorations in a personal practice. She loves it when something she’s been practicing or teaching is cracked wide open to reveal a completely new route or language. This is where the magic lies! Brie seeks out adventures around the world to train and to practice with humans from different cultures and backgrounds. Brie sings, “The power of the collective breath is a universal love language! And… I HAVE SO MUCH MORE TO LEARN!”

Christian “Sheri” Sheridan


Hi! My friends call me Sheri! I’m a fun loving, free spirited nomadic human. I completed my 200hr Yoga training in the hills of Northern India in a town called Rishikesh. Upon returning to America, I made it my goal to spread knowledge of traditional Yoga principles and philosophy with an emphasis on blending Yoga practices into our daily life. Working as a Travel Nurse the last couple of years, I was fortunate enough to move around the country teaching both online and in person Yoga classes. I promote a disciplined practice that focuses on the stability and strength of our body, mind, and souls. I am passionate about exploring consciousness through finding what it truly means to be a spiritual being having a human experience.

I am a physical therapist and yoga instructor with over 30 years of teaching yoga and group fitness. I am interested teaching 6- to 8-week yoga courses for beginners and for people with arthritis and joint replacements. My background as a physical therapist and knowledge of anatomy greatly influences how I teach yoga, which is Alignment Yoga, partially rooted in Hatha yoga. I believe our bodies were designed for movement. My goal is for students to learn to safely lengthen and strengthen within their own limitations, and connect body, mind, and spirit for optimal health.

Roxanne Butler is an integrative embodiment practitioner with a focus on the relationships between self, other, & environment. Her work is intended to facilitate awareness of how these relationships are habitually expressed within the human nervous system and experienced as dissonance between how we feel and how we behave. She’s found that through this awareness, alignment between intention and action may be restored, a sense of home in the body may be remembered, and healing becomes possible. This work may support sleep, stress, pain and overall sense of aliveness.


MS Health Education, E-RYT, YACEP

My interest in yoga began in 1994 while studying the emerging field of mind-body medicine in graduate school. Over the years I’ve studied several yoga, meditation, and relaxation techniques in pursuit of a better understanding of how mind-body connections affect and enhance health. In 2008 a surfing accident resulted in a severe nerve injury that set me on the journey to my current daily practice. I aspire to inspire my students by offering guided practices that challenges them to grow at their own pace, without judgment. Always a friend of the outdoors, I love water sports, rock climbing, hiking and camping. When I’m not in the studio you can find me gardening, stand up paddling, or heading out for a date with nature.
