Relax & Restore


This class is taught by:

Angela Houston

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.

Andrea Boyette

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!
On the yoga-class spectrum, restorative yoga is at the opposite end from hot or flow classes. The concept behind restorative yoga is muscular release, as opposed to muscular stretch. The class is designed to allow the body to relax and nourish itself by holding a series of gentle poses for extended periods of time. Props are utilized so that the practitioner can fully surrender. These soothing postures offer an opportunity to linger quietly and savor the simple sweetness of life while inducing stress-reduction, increased circulation and calmness of mind.
