Yoga is a growing and learning experience, where the body finds new paths and opens up to a new perspective of Life.

Lucy Gong

Growing up in Shanghai exposed me to a deeply spiritual part of my culture at an early age.
I believe my practice helps me stay grounded in those roots and spirituality.

In 2016 after moving to my new home in the United States I started my regular practice at Flow Hot Yoga in Vancouver WA. After a while Yoga Instructing became my primary focus. In June, 2018, I was honored to receive my first 200 RYT. This was a life changing event I will cherish forever.

I believe through my training and experience I have gained more insight into yoga and proper alignment through the 26 Bikram’s Hatha postures.

I am extremely excited and encouraged by the therapeutic benefits of yoga. The benefits of yoga on the knee’s, back, joint, and shoulder pain are measurable. I personally suffered from excruciating shoulder pain that lasted for years until I began regular Yoga practice. Now I am pain free and loving it.

It gives me great joy to be in front of my students watching them strive and grow. I appreciate the diversity of students all with very different capabilities and needs. This ensures a rewarding and stimulating class environment.
In Jan 2019, I received my second 200 RYT in Hot Vinyasa.

Also in 2019, I went back to Shanghai and stayed 2 months to practice more yoga which made me realize the yoga postures they teach in Asia are very different compared to the US. I am happy to bring my knowledge back to the United States and help my students to explore different yoga postures to increase range of motion in different joints.

Jim Tabeau

Do your Shoulders Ache? Do you have insufferable Neck Pain? If you are an athlete, you may have aching feet, legs, hips, back shoulders, etc. Maybe you sit too much so your back and hips are beginning to hurt all the time.

Jim will help break up old scar tissue or just get moving without restrictions. MFR (Myofascial Release) & CST (Cranial Sacral Therapy) are the most effective Massage therapy treatments ever introduced, yet very few therapists practice them. Combining these therapies produces long term consistent results for shoulder/back pain, hip issues, Fimbromyalgia, sport injuries, work related stress/tension, runners issues and much more.

Quote:

“I love teaching fitness and finding fun ways to challenge and uplift people! It’s inspiring to work with people who set aside time to prioritize their own well-being. I know everyone leads busy lives, so spending even 1 hour with me is no small feat. I do my best to make sure that hour is a worthwhile investment. I love seeing the change from when students walk into class, exhausted and stressed, to when they leave feeling energized and accomplished. It’s a privilege to work with such driven individuals who show up and do the work. A little fun music never hurt either.”

Cheri Dean

A love of movement has stayed with me throughout life. I grew up in North Western Pennsylvania, where I studied ballet, jazz and acrobatics. Outdoor sports such as skiing, skating and biking were enjoyed as well. After college and children, my focus turned to Yoga and Pilates. Mindbody movement and fitness are my favorites. My career of 18 yrs was spent in Cincinnati OH. Teaching corporate and studio classes along with a wellness facility for children with special needs was a focus.
I look forward to sharing my passion and expertise with you in the near future.
