Since 1996, Annie’s yoga mat has been her chief therapist.

Michael awakened to the practice of embodied movement in 2008. After years of studying to be an Engineer, he became acutely aware of the damage done while sitting in a chair. His determination to reverse the physical path he was on softened into a passion for the practice of yoga. In 2014, he trained with Shiva Rea in the art of Prana Vinyasa Flow ™.
His intention is to explore HOW we move as opposed to WHERE we move our bodies within the confines of our own evolutionary edge. His classes are slow and strong to decouple the mind from unconscious movement patterns. This instills an awareness and appreciation for each of our own unique kinetic dynamics. Freedom of movement is encouraged as we explore this connection with all of humanity.
Class Description: Clear one’s cluttered mind. Free form expressive movement. Sacred breath endures.

Rachel began practicing yoga about 4 years ago regularly at SALT. Shortly after beginning her practice, one of her brothers developed terminal brain cancer and passed shortly after the diagnosis. Rachel leaned into her practice to help her deal with the stress and the grief she was feeling. It reminded her to live as present as she could with each moment and to breathe through the hard times. She wanted to share some of these gifts of yoga that she received with others, to help them through life’s good times and bad. She wants everyone to come to her classes with the bodies they have and encourages beginning the poses by feeling the edges that are there instead of thinking about an idea of the perfect pose.
