yoga for every body

Yoga for Pregnancy


This class is taught by:

Tracy Coons

I am a ERYT-200 hour certified yoga instructor trained in the Viniyoga tradition, a birth doula and a mom of five fabulous children. I began practicing yoga in 1996 after the birth of my third child as a way to get my body back in shape, but discovered along the way that the practice brought me so much more than a healthy body. My yoga practice provides peace and balance and reminds me to take life as it comes, one breath at a time.

My passion is teaching prenatal yoga classes and workshops. I draw on my personal experience and my training as a doula to help expectant individuals move through pregnancy and birth with greater strength and ease and confidence.

Kate Hildyard

Kate has practiced, trained & taught yoga for the past 14 years in Ireland, India and the US. She has been very fortunate to have been taught and mentored by such knowledgeable & wise yoga experts such as Donna Farhi, Rod Stryker, Guruji Vishwas Mandlik & Marie Quail, all of whom have imparted their experience and wisdom onto her. In her own words Kate says that “Yoga has brought balance, certainty & energy to my life both on and off the mat”. As an Instructor & Yoga Therapist her approach is heartfelt, encouraging, positive & non-judgmental. Kate’s classes are warm and inviting. She likes to teach strong, mindful vinyasa practices which she feels encourages her students to explore and connect to their inner strength and wisdom. She believes that when we are connected to the inner self there are no boundaries. We can see clearly our true purpose and the means of achieving it. Her life experiences have taught her that it is true to say that we are not defined by our thoughts, condition or situation, but rather by how we overcome them and who we become in the process. Her prenatal classes are nurturing, and restorative with attention given to supporting Mother and baby during this precious time of transition and growth.

Her mantra is “go gently but with purpose……”

“I look forward to meeting with you soon in our wonderful yoga space”

Angela Butoryak

Angela is a Northwest Native and was drawn to Yoga in 1997 when she suffered sciatic pain during and after the birth of her first child. She continued to practice for many years before she decided to dive deeper in her studies. She loves sharing what she has learned, and how it has greatly affected her life in a positive way. Yoga has so many facets, and she continues to learn and use yoga in her everyday life! She studied and trained in the Viniyoga lineage, where function is stressed over form, and emphasis on integrating the flow of movement with breath, under Tracy Weber at Whole Life Yoga in the Greenlake area of Seattle. She became certified on Aug 1st, 2011 at the RYT-200 level and is a member of Yoga Alliance. Angela has a unique ability to connect with her students with knowledge, understanding and compassion.
