Aly Anderson

A Pacific Northwest native, Aly spent most of her childhood moving
around and eventually ended up back in what she considers one of the most beautiful places on earth, right here in the PNW.

Aly is married to her life partner in crime, Nick. Together they share 2 beautiful (albeit wild) children, 1 very sweet newborn baby, and 2 crazy pugs. Aly enjoys creating art, spontaneous dance parties, a good book, gardening, and relishes spending quiet moments in nature.

Aly has been practicing yoga for over 15 years.  Eventually the call to take practice and knowledge to the next level brought her to Costa Rica where she completed her 200 hour YTT. Aly’s passion is making yoga accessible for everyone and believes yoga should be tailored to the individual. She draws class inspiration from Mother Nature, the Sutras, Chakras, and the 8 limb path. A lifelong student of yoga, she believes each time you unroll the mat you can learn something new.  

Bekah Gilbert

 I originally hail from Pennsylvania, but my inner nomad pushed me to migrate to the West Coast.  I graduated from graduate school 4 years ago with my Doctorate in Physical Therapy. I quickly realized when I was no longer swamped in tests and homework that I needed something more.  I have been active my entire life, but dance has always been my passion. When I took my first yoga class, I remember laying in Savasana feeling like I finally found myself another home and a new passion.  In September 2017 I attended a 200 hour YTT in Thailand. The primary focus for my training was Ashtanga, however I have modified my teaching style to include Vinyasa Flow/Power Yoga. While I enjoy creating fast and fun yang sequences, I have also learned the value of yin and meditation.  In my classes you will find a mix of Yin and Yang styles that create an equal energy balance. I teach because I truly believe everyone and any body type will benefit from a yoga practice. Yoga is self-care for the body, heart and mind and every being deserves this gift.

Danielle Pottberg

Practicing Since: 2014         Teaching Since: 2016 Most Recent Training: 200hr YTT Yoga Vida NYC Biggest Influences/Inspirations/Styles: Danielle is continuously inspired by the writings of Gabriel Cousens, Rhonda Byrne, Ina May Gaskin, Paul Williams, Pema Chondron and of course B.K.S Iyengar. I am forever grateful to my teachers from Yoga Vida: Aditi Shah, Lindsay Hilscher, Nathan Lowry, Robert Lindsey, Jeffrey Villanueva, Tracy Maltz and of course my mentor Eileen Goddard. What to Expect in Class: Flow (vinyasa) classes begin with pranayama, a slow and mindful warm up sequence, setting an intention and transition into sun salutations to build warmth and strength. Next, expect a sequence of standing postures before moving to the mat for more floor work and ending with a long and much earned savasana with optional adjustments throughout. In Hatha-style classes, expect longer holds in a series of standing poses incorporating core work as well as strength and stability. Pranayama will guide you through your practice while verbal cues help you to find proper alignment, microadjustments, mudras and a deeper understanding of the muscle engagement in each asana. Variations and modifications are offered throughout every class and are welcomed and encouraged.
