Star Amoureux

Star's first introduction to yoga was a Kundalini class over 27 years ago at the University of Oregon. After that, ssh was hooked. For the next ten + years she continued to practice Kundalini whenever and where ever she could. During the same time, Hatha yoga began to gain in popularity, and she started taking classes in gyms and yoga studios. "I consider myself a universalist, studying and enjoying many styles, of yoga, "say's Star. "I have taken training in an array of styles and fuse together the elements of these styles into my classes."

She continues to study yoga with local teachers Siva Rothstein and recognizes Katey Inman, Stephanie Keach, and Shala Worse as some of her formative teachers.

Star's philosophy is that yoga can be playful yet powerful and through an in-depth exploration of the physical body we can experience the philosophy of yoga in a visceral way.

Trained in more than seven styles of yoga and having taught for over tens years, Star is a gem of a teacher, and she is guaranteed to rock your asana!

I LOVE YOGA!!! Ten years ago I moved to AK for outdoor adventures! With yoga I have found an adventure within. My practice began when doctors recommended yoga to relieve chronic neck & shoulder pain. Three years ago In 2004, I took my first yoga class at UAA with Nirvair Khalsa and I was hooked. Later that year in Los Angeles I took another yoga class, it was then and there that I had bitten me by curiosity and wanted to know more about the practice of yoga. It still took 8 years before finally deciding dive deeper and become a yoga teacher. On a Thursday afternoon after a one hour Bikram class with Melanie It occurred to me that I needed to have this feeling of calm and inner peace in my life on a constant basis. Shortly after this experience I enrolled in the 200 Teacher Training program at Anchorage Yoga and now I have the honor of sharing my practice with you! Not only do I love the challenge of a strong well and balanced yoga class, I truly believe that the mind, body, spirit connection, is incredibly powerful. When I'm not using my son as a chaturanga weight pack , I can be found either taking a yoga class, seriously practicing hard postures, (I am determined to keep having serious fun with yoga), hiking, and/or singing opera. Yoga changed my life for the better and I am grateful.

Growing up in Alaska I have always enjoyed the outdoors and the adventure of living in this great state. Snowboarding is one of my passions. After breaking my pelvis in three places while snowboarding in 2003, I became interested in yoga as part of my rehabilitation. Immediately I was opened up to a world that forever changed my life. I began Hatha and Anusara teacher training in 2012 with Karen Greenwood at Inner Dance, and I am forever invested as a student. My goal is to share the ten years of education and knowledge that has been passed on to me in this great community. My educational back ground includes; Certified 1st degree Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do. I am also a Certified Hatha Yoga Instructor; 200 hr Yoga Alliance RYT. Currently I am studying at the University of Alaska Anchorage; Bachelor of Science: Major in Health and Group Fitness, Minor in Athletic Training and Nutrition.

Christa Koos

Christa's journey into yoga began over a decade ago in Chicago. Her passion for mountain biking drew her to Colorado and it was in the sunshine of Rocky Mountains, that she deepened her physical practice and earned a B.S. in Biology, emphasizing Human Physiology. Christa was so intrigued by the human body and the amazing capability of yoga to heal our bodies, that she enrolled in a 200 hour teacher training at Core Power in Fort Collins, Colorado. Here her passion was rewarded and her knowledge of yoga increased exponentially. She blossomed under the tutelage of experts including Dr. Katy Poole and Channing Grivas. Set to fun and uplifting music, you can expect to be inspired and challenged in Christa's classes as she guides you safely and joyfully through your practice!
