Cobey studied yoga in NYC with Lisa and Charles Matkin, disciples of ISHTA Yoga founder Alan Finger. He was a founding instructor at Stepping Stones Yoga in New York, and also taught at Devotion Yoga and Bread & Yoga in Manhattan. Through his years as an instructor he has developed a genuine, skilled, and powerful approach to teaching that provides his students with the ability to be creative and dynamic on their mats. He is a strong believer in the importance of ujjayi, and believes that the greatest indicator of the quality of one's asana practice is the quality of one's breath.

Andrea Pavela

Andrea is passionate about sharing yoga as a platform to explore movement, take risks, and grow towards your highest potential. Her own practice over the last decade has guided her to a more aligned, connected, and curiosity-led life.

 

Expect a strong, conscious flow, built off alignment principles with lots of opportunities to color outside the lines. A lover of handstands and arm balances, she will challenge your strength and stamina with an infusion of humor in hopes you’ll crack a smile in the process.

 

Andrea completed initial training through Sonic Yoga in New York City. She’s since pursued trainings and workshops with the likes of Annie Carpenter, Ido Portal, Dylan Werner, Lorin Roche, Sally Kempton, and Shiva Rae.

Craig Baldwin

RTY 200
 
 
Craig first started practicing yoga over 35 years ago. With a physical job working in construction and playing different team sports for recreation, he never made the time to develop a consistent yoga practice. About 14 years ago after having to stop playing the sports he loves mainly due to lingering injuries he came back home to yoga. At some point while practicing 2-3 times a week in different studios for a decade or so, Craig’s practice felt stagnant.

 

To deepen his understanding of the history and philosophy of Yoga, he took teacher training at Be Luminous Yoga. While his intention of taking the training was not to teach, somewhere along the way he became inspired to teach. Teaching Yoga is another evolution in his spiritual growth. Craig brings his life experience, humor, playfulness, LOVE of Yoga and music to each class!

 

When Craig is not in a yoga studio he is doing some sort of construction project, walking his dog, listening to and playing blues, jazz, and kirtan music, enjoying the salt air of Puget Sound on Camano Island, and spending time with friends and family. He especially enjoys spending time with his wonderful wife of 23 years, Nan. Craig looks forward to seeing you on the mat!
