David Westlake

An ancient sage once wrote that the deeper purpose of yoga was to still the chattering distractions of the mind. I agree absolutely and dare to suggest that the intentional practice of any physical medium whether it be yoga, cycle, running or whatever it may be has the same outcome. At first, the practitioner seeks physical health with all it's benefits but after a while there comes a profound mental clarity that goes beyond the everyday thoughts and identifications of the ego. There is something that happens when our bodies become our ally through effort and self love that allows us to live more fully. I hold this conviction near to my heart, taking it into whatever I teach whether it be the physical poses of yoga, the stories behind the practice or an epic ride. My own journey has certainly proven this truth again and again. All the activities I explored on the journey towards yoga such as wrestling, T'ai Chi, sports fencing and hiking pointed in this direction. Looking back it makes absolute sense that I teach yoga and indoor cycle, but I still smile when thinking about it. Life has a way of doing that for us.  
 
Come check out one of my classes, surround yourself with epic music, breath, discover the edge and move beyond it. Without a doubt, this process of expanding our physical health is a metaphor for all levels of our lives, we step past our habits and self-imposed limitations to discover infinite possibilities. Love and Gratitude!

My yoga journey began long before I attended my first official yoga class. A series of difficult life circumstances left me empty and searching for peace and centeredness. I didn't know it at the time but this was the perfect environment to plant the seed of yoga. One Christmas, I received a gift card to Anchorage Yoga and my life has been forever changed.

I graduated AY Teacher Training in 2015 and now feel so honored to teach beside the very same practitioners who instilled the love for the practice within me.

I am a lifelong Alaskan, born and raised in Homer. I am the oldest of six kids and the only boy. I work in the construction industry but I try to spend as much time playing outside as possible!

Although I originally started practicing yoga to rehab from a knee injury, I've experienced a multitude of benefits beyond just physical ones. Yoga has not only helped me heal and strengthen my body but it also helps ground me and develop mental and emotional clarity. I think yoga can affect positive change in all aspects of our lives and I appreciate how yoga always seems to bring me back to who I want to be and who I'm working on becoming. After experiencing for myself many wide-ranging benefits from a regular yoga practice I was inspired to share my passion with others, so I attended the Anchorage Yoga Teacher Training program. I've been teaching yoga ever since graduating and I would love to invite you to check out a class sometime and enjoy a brief yoga journey that can help you feel better – inside and out!

 

Katey Inman

(E-RYT 500) Katey Inman, co-owner and director of Anchorage Yoga, has practiced and studied Yoga for over two decades. While living in Arizona, she trained with Anusara teachers Jordan and Martin Kirk completing her first 200-hour Yoga Alliance® Teacher Training at At One Yoga. Upon completing her training she traveled to Auro Valley Ashram in India to further her studies. Soon after she returned from India Katey knew that Yoga had become a path for her rather then a practice.
Over the years Katey has studied various schools of yoga and developed a love affair with the Philosophical teachings of Tantra. Most recently she has had the privilege to learn from a true Guru and credits her time with Dharma Mittra as life affirming and profoundly transformational. As a massage therapist Katey weaves her passion for anatomy into each of her classes and has developed her own methodology of teaching that encompasses her love for all things Yoga. Katey encourages her students to challenge themselves from a place of compassion, practice with purpose, and follow to the powers of divine intuition.
Pranam to those who have illuminated my path: Jordan and Martin Kirk, Lisa Goodwin, Satya and Ani Love, Dain Inman, Tias and Surya Little, Ram Das, Krishna Das, David Rominelli, Hareesh Wallis, Lynn Minton, Sri Dharma Mittra, and all the students who have come through our doors at Anchorage Yoga.

Jillian Bender

My yoga story began about 10 years ago in Bellingham, Washington. After experiencing a variety of hardships throughout my life, I was not sure how to deal with my emotions, how to love my body, or how to heal. I received a free class pass from a friend for a local studio and after my first class I felt light was finally able to break through into my heart and I was hooked. I spent 4 years cleaning the space and mopping the floors in that same studio everyday in exchange for free yoga classes. Since then, my yoga practice has taught me how to piece together the parts of myself and find peace I did not know existed! Yoga has taught me to love myself, others, and this beautiful messy thing we call life! In 2014, my journey led me to Anchorage Yoga’s Teacher Training. I will be forever grateful for the teachers here at Anchorage Yoga and my fellow students that made the experience such a powerful and transformational one! I like to teach classes that challenge the body and the mind while incorporating the occasional laughter and silliness. My wish is that students leave my class feeling light, joyful, and strong!
