Suzanne Davis, E-RYT500

We started Love Yoga in 2010 with the intention of inspiring others to ease pain and find joy through movement, stillness and awareness. The Love Yoga Training inspires others to do the same. From that program, an amazing yoga community has evolved that does even more to reduce stress, relieve tension, inspire laughter, create connections, share music and make friends.

Sabrina Mays, Yoga Instructor at Love Yoga Studios

Sabrina Mays, RYT200

A few years ago, I left Kentucky for Oregon with little more than a car load of clothes, my yoga mat and my two favorite people because life just wasn’t challenging enough apparently. It wasn’t easy. It was downright scary. So I know a thing or two about change, challenge and courage.  Thankfully I had been fully trained in ‘calm’. 

Aunnie Whittington, Yoga Instructor at Love Yoga Studios

Aunnie Whittington, RYT200

I take self care pretty seriously. For everyone. My passion for self care extends to my family, friends, coworkers and others. I’m always happy to create space whether that’s teaching, introducing someone to yoga or simply sharing my love of this practice with others.  In addition to yoga I have a strong and consistent meditation and spiritual practice. I also teach, I work, I volunteer at my church and my daughter’s school, so trust me when I say, I know how quickly self care can slide to the bottom of the list, I get it.  This practice . . . makes it possible.

Erin Hanawalt, Yoga Instructor at Love Yoga Studios

Erin Hanawalt, RYT200

I view yoga practice as a laboratory for the exploration of the body, mind, and spirit. In my classes I strive to provide a safe environment for your own explorations. We discover when we can safely push ourselves further and when we need to treat ourselves more gently. Practicing with compassion for ourselves helps us extend compassion to others

We challenge ourselves in the studio and learn the power of a steadying breath; we stumble in a balance pose and step back in without self-judgment. Yoga practice helps develop the resiliency to live life as well as we can.

Erin Yatsui, Yoga Instructor at Love Yoga Studios

Erin Yatsui, RYT500
