When I stepped onto a yoga mat almost two decades ago, my life was forever changed; for the first time in a long time, I felt at home. Since then, I have studied, practiced, taught, and lived yoga to the best of my ability and from my whole heart. I teach from a relevant and practical foundation while weaving in wisdom teachings that have been handed down to me from my teachers (primarily of Bhakti tradition). I believe in collective consciousness and also our universal heart and connect to both to teach and guide. I am here to serve the Love Bird community, our sweet town of Redmond, and the world.

I found the joy of yoga and realized I wanted to share the benefits and experience of yoga with others. As an avid motorcyclist and outdoorsman, I have found practical application of yoga to my life.
Bridget Howe, Studio Manager, RYT200
My journey with Yoga started in 2011, when I was in a place of deep disconnection with my body. Developing a practice has led me to finding acceptance (over and over) with my body, self, and difficult experiences over the years. I teach with the mindset that Yoga isn't about "looking" like a Yogi, but LIVING like one. I am to provide students with a safe place to move and grow with compassion, acceptance, & non-judgement. Mental health is one of my passions and I believe yoga aids in developing a healthy mind, body, and soul.
Brooke Coletta, E-RYT500, YACEP
I love Yoga because it makes me feel whole. I love that the practice is more than physical, yet it is physically challenging every time you step onto the mat. I strive to teach every student how to experience each posture in a safe, sustainable and intentional way. As a serious student of philosophy and teacher of all of the limbs of Yoga, it is my responsibility to share the ancient but very alive teachings in an authentic and compassionate way.
Stephanie Salafia, RYT200
I began my yoga journey in 2013 when I needed something that allowed me to drop in and let go. I had no idea the amount of places in my body that needed to be “un stuck” and immediately felt connected with the practice and loved how it made me feel from the inside out. My intention is to share this practice and hope it gives my students the strength and peace it gives my every time I step on my mat.
Kayla Wright, RYT500
Yoga found me roughly five years ago during a time of much needed help to move through anxiety, depression and fear. With regular practice, I noticed a lessening of tension, more clarity of mind and a deeper connection to my body. This discovery sparked a never-ending curiosity to explore the ancient teachings further. I teach from a desire to offer anyone who steps onto the mat a safe space to go into the body, into the mind and find their own unique, beautiful connection to Self. Yoga has so much to offer - let the journey begin!
Larissa Darcy, RYT200
I fell in love with yoga because it is a constant opportunity to grow and express myself. I'm a runner, hiker, yogi, and cyclist and love to find physical and mental challenges in all things. I have taught at various studios around the world, and assisted in opening a studio with my husband Kevin, where we focused on yoga, cycling classes, and general wellness. I love pushing the boundaries of my students, and helping each student realize their potential on and off of the mat.
Heather Kulikowsky, E-RYT500, 800HR Certified Yoga Therapist
I was burnt out, ravaged by debilitating pain and fatigue, struggling with the weight of an invisible illness, and yet yoga found me, picked me up, put me back together, and showed me how to share what I had found. My desire to know more led me to Kripalu’s School of Integrative Yoga Therapy (overseen by IAYT) where I learned why yoga works, where current research supports ancient practices, how to choose and apply specific techniques based on an individual’s strengths, needs, goals, and how to develop in others the capacity to know and support oneself. I infuse my love of nature, science, athletics, and spirit into playful, open hearted explorations, the goal always being to lovingly guide you home to yourself.
Kim Wilk, RYT200
Yoga began for me as a way to stretch and recover from marathons and triathlons but I quickly realized yoga offered me so much more. I have always been a very driven and motivated athlete who pushed myself to my limits and beyond and never gave myself the chance to relax or recover from a race or training. What I find in yoga is it allows us all the chance to be powerful and calm, dynamic and peaceful, and strong yet gentle. I strive to bring these qualities into my classes to open pathways for healing and balance in your practice and life.
Genevieve Schweitzer, RYT500
My practice began with yin yoga as a compliment to dance training in high school. I went on to receive my BFA in dance and experienced some injuries due to a long time ballet/dance practice. I feel and know that yoga healed me physically and also strengthened me mentally and spiritually. My teaching is rooted in anatomy as I means to support alignment and avoid injury. I am one of the creators and also head of program development of Mindful Yogis, an offering that teachers yoga and mindfulness to elementary and middle school aged kids.
