Instructors for the Training
Lead Trainer: Wendy Humphreys, E-RYT 200 & YACEP
Hi, I am Wendy and I love teaching yoga to the people of the Willamette Valley. I love practicing yoga because it makes my life better and I know it will make your life better as well. Yoga will make you stronger, more emotionally balanced, and bring more clarity to your life. It takes patience and work to heal our bodies and souls. I received my first 200 hr. training at CorePower Yoga and then a CorePower level 2 training, my journey then led me to another 200 hr. Baptiste training giving me the tools and inspiration I need to give my students a powerful yoga practice with benefits that improve every aspect of their life. I am super excited to be currently working on my 500 hr training that has included learning from Sarah Powers, Rod Stryker and Gary Kraftsow. I teach a class for all people who want to grow and learn to live their truth and be the best version of themselves as they can possibly be. I am eager to go on this adventure with you.
Trainer: Marilyn Polo, 200hr Sivananda
Marilyn Śambhavi Polo has been practicing yoga, mediation, and Ayurveda for 20 years. She is a certified Sivananda Yoga teacher, having completed her in-depth training at the Sivananda Ashram Yoga Retreat on Paradise Island, Bahamas, in 2002. Marilyn continued her intensive studies in yoga asana, pranayama, meditation, karma yoga (selfless service), yogic lifestyle, and Vedanta philosophy while living at the Sivananda Ashram Yoga Ranch in Woodbourne, NY, for over 18 months. She has lived and served at various Sivananda ashrams worldwide since that time, including assisting in yoga teacher trainings in Neyyar Dam, India. Throughout her spiritual life, Marilyn has had the privilege and fortune to have trained under and alongside advanced yogis, many of whom were direct disciples to highly evolved souls. As an instructor, Marilyn’s intent is to be able to share her vast knowledge of all things yoga, Vedanta, and Ayurveda in meaningful ways to a Western audience. Helping individuals connect to their divine nature and to live their truth is at the heart of the practice that she shares. Marilyn teaches traditional Sivananda-style hatha yoga classes that have a deep, meditative approach and focus on the breath. She believes yoga should be accessible to all body types and ages.
Trainer: Liz Hoffman, 200hr E-RYT, YACEP
Elizabeth Hoffmann has been practicing yoga on and off for the last ten years. She began her journey in a small class with hardwood floors, traditional Hatha yoga, and a teacher she will never forget. Years later, she received her 200 hour teacher training at Nirvana School of Classical Hatha Yoga in Atlanta, Georgia, in 2013. Since then she has gone on to become an Oregon licensed massage therapist and vaginal steam facilitator. Now, Elizabeth is a Yoga Alliance certified continuing education provider for other yoga instructors (YACEP) and is an E-RYT which means she has taught over 1,000 hours of yoga. Additionally, Elizabeth is also a Certified Trauma Informed Yoga Teacher, having completed her 60 hour education at Passion Yoga School & Bodywise Institute. Elizabeth’s yoga classes are influenced by the eight branches of yoga and alignment based concepts. Her goal is empowering the inner teacher in every student. She always offers modifications, props, and alternatives for every body; she constantly strives to make yoga accessible for every person who comes to class because she firmly believes yoga is for every person, regardless of their size, age, weight, abilities, gender, or experiences.

Trainer: Kelsey Elliott, 200hr RYT
I have always been a seeker of light, love and growth. Yoga was brought into my life in 2007 and it continues to be the foundation of my existence. After completing a Reiki Master training in 2012, I was compelled to help others feel better with a holistic- preventative approach to their health. Starting with our youth, I took a children’s yoga teacher training in 2017 through Yoga Playgrounds out of Portland, Oregon. A year later completed a 200 hour training with Swastha Yoga International in Rapid City, South Dakota and a 200 hour training with Wild Thing Yoga Bend, Oregon.
Becoming more mindful of my peers, space, and body I ditched the “convenient” lifestyle and started shaping myself into the person I was meant to be. I love to share essential oils and aryvedic habits on and off the mat. When I’m not practicing yoga, I’m touching base with mother nature, chilling with my pup, making smoothies and sewing.
With roots in dance, my style is very free flowing and open to how your body moves you. Creating a space to connect with your body and let your mind go.
Movement is medicine and the more you flow, the more you grow.
Trainer: Barry Glassman, 500 hr RYS
My relationship with yoga is an important grounding contribution to my spirit walk. The teachings layer in nicely with my connection to and practice of Native American Sweat lodge and philosophies, love of our Mother Earth and wisdom of the Self = the One. Practices and concepts I enjoy bringing to the mat and classes are: pranayama, meditation, chanting, asana, meridian energy, and learnings from ancient Indian texts. Love the Bhagavad Gita, Mahabharata and Upanishads just for the shear enjoyment of it; always something to learn or marvel at. Other Earthly enjoyments during the rest of life: reading, music, the out of doors, growing things (in the garden, heart & mind), cooking, any art project, carpentry, and broadening the circle of friends = family of the heart. Come practice together. Namaste.
Our Very Own Valeria Pearson will be our Student Assistant for the training
