Yoga practice is the most ancient and powerful personal transformative tradition in the world, and that heritage is currently in our hands. Yoga instructors have the knowledge and skills to bring the healing and contemplative potential of yoga to others. It is inherently powerful work.

Evan and Kelly Harris have studied yoga traditions since 2002. Registered with Yoga Alliance at the E-RYT 500 level, their studies have taken them to nationally and internationally recognized instructors over the last 15 years. This includes five months of study in India as well as ongoing intensive study with their current teacher, Matthew Sweeney, since 2009. In 2008, they brought Ashtanga yoga to the QCA.
