Love Bird Yoga is a local, family owned yoga studio located in historic downtown Redmond. Classes are steeped in the traditions of yoga and brought forth from a place of now. Our teachers come from a variety of lineages and we believe movement, mindfulness, and meditation will indeed change the world. See schedule below for both in-studio and online classes. Join us to be, breathe, and move together; we'll save a mat for you!

Liz Skarvelis, Founder/Owner, E-RYT500, YACEP
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 the Bhakti traditions). I believe in the collective consciousness and also our universal heart and tap into both to teach and guide. I am here to serve the Love Bird community, our sweet town of Redmond, and the world.
Greg Skarvelis, Founder/Owner, RYT200
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.
Toni Larson, RYT500
Nature brings me joy and sets my heart on fire! I practice yoga to stay grounded, happy, healthy, balanced and connected to Spirit. This keeps me doing the things I love most in life. All things rooted in love and gratitude, this is the recipe for life. I believe in sustainable yoga and I teach with a very real and down to earth style. Recognizing that each person’s body, range of motion, strength and energy is different, I create a unique and playful space so students can approach their practice with wisdom, courage and most importantly unconditional love.
Jaimie Edwards, RYT200
Yoga has brought me freedom from chronic pain and a desire to live in balance. I strive for effort and ease, with a twist of playfulness, in both life and teaching. As an empathic healer, I rely on intuition when working with students on their healing journey. I am always learning, a forever student, and love to bring new methods and modalities into my classes. In addition to teaching yoga, I also teach Chakra workshops and provide Reiki in our community. I am inspired by Baron Baptiste, Eckhart Tolle, the vibrancy of wildflowers, and the elements of nature.
Kayla Wright, RYT200
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 D'Andrea, 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. While I was in college, I completed my teaching training with Core Power Yoga, and was more often found in the yoga studio than in classes! I started teaching yoga in 2013 right after I graduated as I knew that teaching yoga was something I was passionate about sharing with others. 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.

"From the first class I ever took from Brooke, it was apparent that she was a gifted teacher. Her approach to the practice is both deeply spiritual, physically challenging and creative in transitions, always leading to a beautiful flow."
"Liz's enthusiasm is contagious. She is authentic, transparent, and real - a jewel of a teacher. Learning from her is enlightening and powerful."
"I appreciate Stephanie's calm confidence and power that leads each class. Stephanie helps me to deepen my focus and strengthen my practice. Her classes always leave me feeling revitalized."
"Toni's knowledge of the anatomy of our bodies and her keen awareness of alignment and proper form are right on. She uses forms of verbal visualization to guide her students in their practice. For example the Eb and flow of the ocean waves in relationship to our breathing technique. I’m so thankful I have found strength and beauty through Toni’s nurturing classes."
