JILL CASE - E-RYT 500
Isabel was introduced to Yoga as a child which lay, quite literally as savasana was her favorite pose, the groundwork for her love of Yoga. Throughout life, she continued her practice off and on for years primarily for the physical benefit of asana before discovering the other 7 limbs of yoga. Hungry for more knowledge, she set off on a spiritual quest which eventually led her to YoYoYogi's 200 hour teacher training. She has long been interested in philosophy and mythology and is constantly studying and uncovering bits of knowledge about yoga and beyond. Her passion lies in sharing with her students in hopes that they too can begin to appreciate the vast practice of Yoga.
And share she does. Isabel is one of the founding teachers at YoYoYogi, leading retreats, workshops and special events to expose all of Portland to her down-to-earth, real-life approach to this transformation practice.

GALEN FAIRBANKS - RYT 500
Lifelong athlete, Kristi Cole, made her way onto unfamiliar territory eight years ago when she stepped her two calloused feet onto a rubber mat. It was there that she sweated and struggled her way through 60 minutes of what would one day become her life passion.
She soon became addicted to the miraculous physical accomplishments she found through yoga. (Finally loose enough hamstrings allowed her to touch her toes!!) Kristi began to practice everyday, every single day and quickly realized that yoga was not just another competitive sport with a win at the end of the season, no! Yoga had dug its way into her soul and was giving her the tools to move gracefully through every aspect of her life.
So in love with the practice and the immense changes that she was witnessing, Kristi knew it was something that she needed to share with everyone who would listen.
Get ready to go on a personal journey of Yoga Asana and learn about postures on every level and in doing so discover why it's not about the poses and never will be.
Galen was first introduced to yoga growing up while practicing ballet, piano, and voice and it immediately felt like a natural extension of her interests and studies. She loved the physicality and dance-like movement and caught the yoga bug right away, but found herself busy living abroad, attending college, and working in New York City. Looking for a new way of life, Galen moved to Portland and signed up for YoYoYogi's 200 hour yoga teacher certification course where daily yoga practice and study quickly left her feeling more balanced, secure, and happy. Always a student, Galen has since completed Elevate Yoga Trainings with Jill Knouse and YoYoYogi's 300 hour yoga teacher training. Galen hopes to share all the gifts that yoga has to offer with each of her students whether in class, workshops, or teacher training!
