About Colin

 Hi! I’m Colin. I have over 12 years of teaching experience including group classes, retreats, teacher trainings, and leading advanced workshops on anatomy, voice and human movement patterns. I am passionate about applying the wisdom and tradition of yoga to unlock the body, quiet the mind and connect to higher consciousness. Through breath, alignment and mindful movement we can release what no longer serves us and invite in strength, balance and joy. I design yoga sequences specifically targeted to ignite the healing process. Through discovery of the places inside the body where emotions and energy are stockpiled, we provide ourselves the opportunity to honor and let go of the past and create a lighter sense of being in the present. I am fascinated by the mirror of the subtle body and how it reflects the physical body. The interplay of the two bodies inspires my teaching style and affords me great compassion for my students and the world around me. I work to empower my students to hone their own skills in various breath, inversion and back-bending practices. Whether this is your first time on the mat or you are an experienced yogi, I look forward to helping you grow your practice and strengthen your sense of self. 

About Gabriela

 Hi! My name is Gabriela! I have been practicing all kinds of movement and exercise modalities for the last 15 years. It started as something I was doing just to lose weight after having my youngest. I quickly started to see the benefits of it expand to my mental and emotional health. The more I moved and got strong the healthier and happy I became. I wanted to learn more about fitness. I took personal training courses and started reading and learning from people that inspired me. I eventually found my way to Forge. A friend of mine invited me to a free class. I had no idea I was signing up for a Bikram class! Little did I know this would be one of those life changing moments. After one class I was hooked. Bikram was a great alternate to the strength training I was doing. Pretty earlier on I also took an IHP class. I loved it too! I continued to attend Forge classes, I feel in love with the community and great teachers. I realized I wanted to help people find the same thing I did. I wanted to help others feel strong and confident not only in their bodies but in their minds as well. I attended the IHP teacher training and shortly after started teaching at Forge. This was 6 years ago now. In that time I fell in love with Vinyasa yoga. Forge offered a Teacher training and I knew this was something I wanted to offer others. Along with helping them get physically strong, I know Vinyasa builds a strong mind and spirit. It has given me the opportunity to find stillness from all the noise that surrounds our daily lives. I feel it myself and see it in the wonderful souls that come to class week over week. It helps me focus and stay grounded. It’s one of those things I know I will do for the rest of my life and I look forward to continuing to share it with others for many years to come. 

About Angela

 I started practicing Bikram Yoga in 2006. I was pretty excited. A little intimidated, but I went in hoping for something that would help fix my back problems. When I was 20 yrs old I fell off my horse during a training exercise that left me with a broken back. I had a compression fracture of my L2 vertebrae. At 20, this was debilitating. I could hardly sit or stand or sleep without a great deal of pain. I tried many solutions, none of which worked. So, 3 years later, when I walked into that first Bikram Yoga Class I was ready for anything.

As someone who’s lived with back pain most of her life I can tell you what not to do and definitely what TO do. Bikram Yoga has most certainly saved my life. To date, I have not had to have surgery for my spine, as doctors thought I might - once I got older. I am now 41 and can do things I never thought possible.

I bought the West Linn studio in 2012 after having managed it for the year prior and opened the Happy Valley studio in 2014. My partner, Ryan, and then bought the Alberta studio in 2017. Before that I had taught yoga since 2009 as well as piano to kids. This is my PASSION! I love teaching and I love working with people who come out of class smiling and feeling SO GOOD. Seeing the joy that each person gains from earning their health back and finally feeling better is beyond words.

We all go into that classroom looking for something. It only takes a few minutes to change our mind, life and attitude. This yoga is our medicine!

I hope to see you soon.
