MATT GONZALEZ PHOTOGRAPHY
Matt is more than our resident photographer; he has become our dear friend and the talent behind nearly every moment you see pictured on this website. Matt has been our right hand behind the lens since Summer 2015. His zest for life and unassuming personality has an uncanny way of putting everyone at ease, resulting in photos that represent your true self. He believes every person deserves to have a picture of themselves that they love. So whether you're looking for someone to capture the spirit of your big day, the essence of your little one, or the beauty of the everyday, Matt Gonzalez is your guy!
YoYo teacher, Rachel Meyer is a Portland-based writer and yoga teacher. After 12 years in San Francisco, she and her family relocated to Oregon, and couldn't be happier to be here. (We second this joy!) Rachel's work has appeared in The Washington Post, On Being, Yoga Journal, Tricycle, Yoga International, The Huffington Post, and more. We owe her a big ol' thank you for her work in keepin' the YoYo voice alive as she helped us write this site!

YoYo student, Brady Holden, asked us one day if he could tell our story via video. We said yes, and he's been telling our story every since. Both videos featured on this website were created by Brady Holden of Holden Films. Brady is a visual storyteller using the art and technique of documentary filmmaking. While his work ranges - from branded stories, social impact videos, educational films, travel shorts, multi-platform marketing content, and short films for live events and fundraisers - the goal is the same: create beautiful, meaningful stories for his clients.
David is our jack-of-all-trades, our go-to, our fitness guru, website editor, and resident DJ. Whether he's layin' down beats for Hip Hops or givin' us a dose of sweet trance during Yo!Rave, he's got the creative juice to find the music that fits the flow. Check out his killer sets at many of our uber fun yoga events and also every Saturday morning as he has the tunes rockin' during his FUNctional Fitness class.
