Louise and Rachel came up with the idea of family yoga after several conversations about life, parenting and yoga and they are excited to explore offering family yoga time where they hope to offer a balance between yoga time together and parents’ time to re-energize.

My yoga practice began in 2016 for many reasons a significant one being I had recently birthed my 2nd child and my life was chaotic. I was a mess. Yoga drew me in for many reasons. The meditative movement, the teachings, the physical practice. The importance of self-care and the power of self-discipline really resonate with me. I find calm, stillness, ease, strength and so many other subtle wisdoms that transfer to life off my mat. It is in this significant transformation in myself and guidance on how to live that I am inspired to lead others.
I received my 200 YTT certification in the spring of 2019 at Mudra Yoga in Eugene. Why family yoga? I have worked with children and youth for more than 20 years and love to share tools that help them grow up healthy physically, emotionally and mentally. I think a significant part in raising healthy kids is in caring for parents and caregivers as much as it is helping children connect to their own intuitive teacher within.
