Instructors

Meet our wonderful instructors!
  • Jennifer Reeve

    Yoga is not just for those who are flexible or strong! Yoga is for those who want to become more flexible and stronger in body, mind and spirit. My mission is to meet my students where they are, and working with their inner wisdom, guide them to growth on and off the mat. My classes are mindful, flowing and offer modifications for all levels of practitioners. I’m a certified Hatha Yoga instructor who has been practicing for more than 16 years. My newest passion is honoring the Divine Feminine as a teacher of Qoya--a movement system that celebrates the essence of women as wise, wild and free. This mindful practice combines yoga, dance and feminine movement and is so much fun!

  • Isabelle Casey

    I knew I was home from the first time I placed my hands on my yoga mat. From that point, my journey of exploration began. I was taught Ashtanga yoga as a supplement to my gymnastics training curriculum. Once I decided to not be a gymnast anymore, I continued to practice yoga. I found a yoga studio and continued my practice. I continued practicing Ashtanga yoga, and eventually began to branch out studying other styles: Hatha, Iyengar, Anusara, Universal, Yin, Power, and ParaYoga.

    Eventually, teaching found me by “accident”. I attended my regular Ashtanga Yoga class, and there was no instructor to lead. With a bit of encouragement from my fellow yoga peers, I stepped in. Though nervous during this experience, the high I felt from sharing my practice with others was huge. My teaching journey continued on… I started began teaching yoga in 1999, to a small intimate group of yogis. In 2001, my formal training began at 8 Limbs Yoga Centers in Seattle under Anne Phyfe Palmer and Melina Meza, Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga, Levels 1 and 2,Bryan Kest, Off The Mat and Into The World Leadership Training, and the Global Action Summit- both under Seane Corn, Hala Khouri, and Suzanne Sterling. I am currently studying under Yoga Rupa (Rod Stryker) in the ParaYoga Master Teacher program. In addition to my yoga certifications, I have completed Landmark I, Advanced Landmark Education, Igolu Leadership training under the fabulous, Suzanne Conrad. I am also a certified Life Coach through the International Coaching Science Research Foundation.

    Aside from my formal yoga trainings, my most profound teacher is life itself. I take into consideration what and whom I’ve studied from, but march to my own beat. My family, experiences, opportunities, and the beautiful people in my life are my guide. My personal practice has organically transformed from the intensity of any set style to more introspective, honing a strong flow that is attentive to the body in motion and grounding stability from our deep core. I teach to who comes to my class and draw inspiration from my own personal practice and share that with others. I truly believe that we are here to share our personal experiences. I also believe in authenticity, teaching and sharing from your own personal experiences. We are all teachers. Be your message. I am naturally drawn to not following an agenda. I have learned that it makes no sense to assume that everyone I teach is the same. We’re not! Yoga, asana in particular to classes, is subjective. Assuming that one posture or breath technique works for everyone is no different than administering aspirin to everyone. It will make some better, some sick, and some nothing. As a result, I am creative and honor the individual and their needs to the best of my ability in the present moment. My goal is to create a space for students to explore where they are in their practice. In class, the foundation is laid by breath work as a metric to follow. We explore a fusion of modalities: dynamic sequencing, physical and energetic core work, pranayama, meditation that cultivate a deeper sense of interconnectedness. My inspiration is derived from my personal, life experience, and wisdom. This creates engaging, yet strong classes that release physical and energetic boundaries in the body and mind. I encourage all to tap and trust their empowering inner wisdom and sharpen awareness on all levels in our experiences. This is yoga. This is the personal catalyst that inspires me to share the teachings of yoga. isabellecasey.com

  • Andrea Laltoo

    It's safe to say EFT tapping changed my life! I discovered it "accidentally" through a dental continuing education course, and it's since become a valuable complement to my asana practice.

    I went from having so much fear in my life that I had trouble leaving my house (this is actually true!) to now traveling solo for months at a time...and that's not all! EFT has brought more self awareness, openness, and overall love into my life than I thought possible. Now it's my bliss to be sharing this amazing technique with others!

    I have been working on my practitioner certification through EFT Universe, and devote some of my time to traveling so I can learn from some of the most prominent figures in energy medicine. Recently, I attended events featuring Donna Eden, David Feinstein, Anodea Judith, and Dean Radin.

    Besides tapping, I use Thetahealing in my energy healing practice, and have also completed my instructor training for several Thetahealing courses with Vianna Stibal.

    I love keeping science as a part of my work too, and am a member of the Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology, which helps to advance scientific research on these methods.

  • Steph Ebel

    Hi. I’m Steph Ebel and hope to see you in a class. I’ve been practicing yoga seriously for about 10 years, the last three as a teacher. Yoga has helped me in so many areas of my life, from being more joyful, relaxed and open, to a slow but powerful physical transformation. My practice and classes are supported by the principle that yoga is where the mind and body meet… with breath and with kindness and respect for our bodies. The perfect posture is one where you are fully and joyfully in the present moment, feeling each cell in your body move towards a place of health wholeness and interconnectedness. It’s not about what you can do, but who you can be. I am an experienced registered yoga teacher (E-RYT 200) with over 1200 hours of teaching experience and have also completed the advanced 500 hour training program for yoga teachers (RYT 500). I particularly enjoy learning ways to help students with physical issues or limitations and firmly believe that yoga is for every body. Besides yoga, I love my family, dog, friends, art and everything about the outdoors.
