Lauren Carter:


Lauren Carter is a PNW native who has spent time exploring different fitness types: HIIT, cross-training, bootcamps, and strength training. She eventually found her passion for the subtle intensity of yoga and created a practice that blends core yoga philosophies and modern practices to isolate muscle groups. With the addition of hip hop and R&B music you will receive an intense workout that focuses on the booty, core, and upper body strength.

Carrie Johnson:

Carrie Johnson is an international blogger and explorer, mala designer, and a yoga instructor who is known for her thoughtful exploration of mindfulness, culture, and physicality. She has 350+ hours of training in Power Vinyasa, Baptiste Yoga and Yin Yoga. For over 10 years, she had a successful career in biology where she co-authored five peer-reviewed scientific publications. Now, she infuses her yoga classes with sound scientific principles, as well as experimentation in each yoga sequence that she creates for her students.

Angela Moorer:

Angela began practicing yoga in 2008 as a high school senior in what she thought would be a simple four-month P.E. class to satisfy a graduation requirement. Little did she know that her yoga practice would follow her through college and beyond, and be there for her at every step (and mis-step) to light her path.


An RYT 200 Yin and Hatha Yoga instructor, she completed 200-hour trainings with both Bastyr University and Soma Yoga Institute. Angela has also completed training in Trauma-Informed Yoga with Street Yoga and received certification in Yoga Nidra with Dr. Marc Halpern of the California College of Ayurveda.

Angela's teaching style is gentle and relaxing, striving to cultivate a calm and nourishing energy in classes that supports a safe space for students to deeply release both physical tensions and emotional stress.

Justin is a Certified Meditation Teacher with nearly two decades of experience practicing mindfulness in a variety of traditions around the world. His teaching philosophy is to bring mindfulness into life, diving into core questions of ethics, practice, and understanding. He draws from Buddhist and Western wisdom traditions as well as from recent scientific developments with a focus on personal development.
