I found yoga as a teenager in the basement of an old firehouse, in the dead of winter in Fairbanks, Alaska. It was my escape to myself. It was the one thing I looked forward to going to every night. It helped me find myself; find my own strength and my own light. I continued to practice and knew I wanted to be apart of sharing this with others. I did my teacher training a few years later in Anchorage, Alaska at Anchorage Yoga and have been teaching ever since. I continue my daily practice, whether meditation or whatever style I’m exploring, and am forever working on growing my connection of mind, body, and breath. I hope to help guide others to their own journeys so they can experience their beauty, their truth, and their light.
I was fortunate enough to be exposed to yoga in my teenage years in high school. I appreciated the benefits of yoga then, but my real practice began when I went to my first hot yoga class at Anchorage Yoga after my first season of river guiding. My body transformed with the practice of Vinyasa and every aspect of my life was positively effected by my efforts on the mat. After practicing consistently for two years I decided I wanted to share the benefits of yoga with others and enrolled in Anchorage Yoga's teacher training Spring of 2014. I was fortunate enough to begin my teaching here at Alyeska Resort in the beautiful and inspiring Summit Room. In addition to teaching at the resort I teach a weekly class to my fellow guides at Chugach Adventures. My classes are full of movement with breathe and finish with restorative postures meant to benefit any lifestyle.
Jule has been studying and practicing yoga since 2005. Her journey started as a purely physical one, enjoying how yoga restored and strengthened her body for Alaskan adventures, but the more subtle aspects were unveiled during her teacher trainings in India. Jule studied at Rishikish Yog Peeth, receiving her 200 hr teaching certificate in 2011 and her 300 hr in 2013. Her classes incorporate movement (asana), breath (pranayama), and awareness (chetna); hoping all yogis leave feeling physically and mentally restored with a sense of stillness in both mind and body. Jule is currently working on a masters in Counseling Psychology at UAA as well as studying to become an Ayurvedic Practitioner. She enjoys learning more about yogas "sister science" and how they both facilitate deep physical and mental healing.
Kari first found yoga in Baron Baptiste’s heated boot camp style classes, just outside of Boston in 2000. The intensity and fast pace of the practice hooked her early. After moving to Phoenix, Kari realized that practicing hot yoga in the desert did not manifest the same bliss as it did on a wintry night in Boston. Her search for a yoga that fit her new place in life led her to teacher Mary Bruce. Mary’s creative physical practice and deep understanding of the energetics of yoga inspired Kari. It is under Mary’s tutelage that she received her 200- and 300-hour yoga teacher certifications. In 2012, Kari travelled to India for an additional 200-hour training with A.G. Mohan, wife Indra and son Ganesh, all of whom were students of the late Krishnamacharya. The studies were steeped in ancient yoga wisdom and added a new depth to Kari’s practice and teaching.
