Carees HeadshotCAREES GONZALEZ Carees DeLaVega developed an interest in teaching yoga to kids after completing Angie Fraley’s 200-Hour “Om2yoga” teacher training in 2015.

Teaching children has been an aspiration of hers since she was a young girl and she is grateful to be stepping into the role as a teacher within such a well-founded program. Read her full bio.

hannahHANNAH B., RYT500: I was led to yoga as a way of recovering from multiple surgeries after repeated spontaneous pneumothoraces (collapsed lungs) and was told the breath work in yoga would help strengthen them. As my breath was restored, I realized I was experiencing repair in other areas, too. I became more resilient to stress and depression, and there was a sense of healing unresolved trauma. The strength of my mind, my heart and my relationship with myself all improved. I love offering the practices that were gifted to me that fueled my healing. Ground down, rise up and come breathe with me! 500-RYT specializing in Trauma-Informed Yoga.

Julia-Thumbnailo (2)

JULIA BLEDSOE discovered yoga’s transformative benefits at age 17. Yoga remained a constant but quiet presence until life’s inevitable stresses, aches and pains led her back to the mat in 2005 in search of relief and balance. It proved, once again, to be a transformative and stabilizing practice.  Julia embarked on a 200 hour teacher training in 2014 with We Are One Flow, Reno. This training ignited Julia’s interest in yoga therapy.  Her exploration and study of yoga therapy and stress management began in 2015 with Yoga Tree, SF and continues 4 years and 700 hours later with the Stress Management Center of Marin. Julia’s mindful gentle approach to yoga is accessible for everybody.
