Gentle Flow

Gentle Flow focuses on a slower paced flow, students will be able to move with a sense of ease from one posture to another, coordinated with the breath. This softer pace will allow you to be more present with each posture. Designed to create space to explore your practice, to find the play between strength, stretch and flexibility, stability and ease, and to gain greater understanding of alignment and balance in the body. This class will include lying, seated as well as standing postures. Props are encouraged to help the body release (ie, mat, blocks, blankets, strap, etc). This class is great for beginners as well as seasoned practitioners.

All levels Flow

This class explores a series of postures, one flowing seamlessly into the next, uniting body, mind, and breath. Designed as a moving meditation, every flow class is unique, creating the opportunity to become stronger, more flexible, and balanced, while practicing being present to the moment. Options will be given throughout class to either bring more challenge or more ease, meeting the needs of the students in the room. Suitable for just about any level but some prior yoga experience is recommended

Taoist Qigong and Internal Alchemy

Qigong is an ancient Chinese practice aimed to quiet the mind and body through meditative movement. By pairing movement, intention and breath we can reach deep relaxation and lasting health benefits. This practice allows us to connect on a deeper level to ourselves and ultimately all living things by deepening our relationship to nature and how we can live harmoniously in an ever changing environment. This class moves slowly with clear instructions and is suitable for beginners and as well as seasoned practitioners

Restorative Yoga

Restorative Yoga invites practitioners to find deep rest and restoration through passive, supported poses. Students are able to calm the nervous system by holding comfortable positions for extended periods of time while being supported by props such as blankets, bolsters, and blocks. Postures are all close to the floor in a lying or seated position, often the wall is used for support and there is an element of sound/music to help encourage release and softening. This class is for all levels and anyone seeking to rest, relax, and renew.

Yin Yoga

Yin is a passive, meditative yoga practice that offers an opportunity to slow down and listen to the body. Using a variety of seated and reclined poses, as well as deep breathing, yin yoga focuses on connective tissues, like fascia, ligaments, joints, and bones, to create more flexibility, awareness, and energy flow. This class is ideal for all who wish to bring more balance to their yoga practice. Suited for all levels, from beginners to seasoned practitioners.

Kundalini Yoga

This class focuses on building inner radiance and vitality. Using the tools of movement, breath, meditation, and mantra, we will energize and strengthen all of the systems of the body - the muscular-skeletal, respiratory, digestive, endocrine, and immune systems, as well as the electromagnetic field. Classes are stimulating, invigorating, relaxing, and calming all at the same time. The techniques build a stronger connection to our authentic selves, creating a deeper experience of equanimity, allowing us to stay calm and centered even when life throws us curve balls. The movements are simple and can be adapted for any ability level; some previous yoga experience is helpful.

Spicy Flow

This strong and dynamic flow class is meant to ignite and fuel your inner fire. You'll move in a way that warms your body and prepares you for more energizing postures. Expect a quicker paced class, the opportunity to practice more complex poses and transitions, and the use of breath to invigorate your energetic body. Be prepared to gain strength and flexibility, be challenged, and relish that end-of-class shavasana. If you are new to yoga, trying a Gentle Flow or an All Levels Flow class first is helpful, but not required


Liliana Franz


Liliana completed a multidisciplinary degree in Somatic healing and Visual Arts from Fairhaven College in the early 2000’s. Her studies included a variety of modalities and practices, including Qigong, that supported traumatic release and healing through movement. Her education supported her personal experience in healing using practices such as meditation, breathwork, yoga and Qigong. First hand, she discovered the depth and power of these resources to untangle the patterns that we hold in the body and mind that do not serve our higher selves.

Liliana continues a devoted practice of Medical Qigong, including the study of energetic healing, Taoist philosophy and its foundational roots in Chinese Medicine. Her ambition to teach this powerful practice is to amplify our vibration through community practice. She is steeped in the innate knowing that by healing ourselves, we ultimately contribute to healing human kind and our planet.

Eugénie Frerichs


Eugénie completed her RYT-200 in 2020 in her hometown of Portland, OR, where she has been studying yoga with her teacher and mentor, Michele Loew, for nearly two decades. She first came to yoga by way of a career as a professional modern dancer, and has over time developed a practice that combines teachings from the Kundalini, Iyengar, Vinyasa, and Ashtanga lineages. After enduring a surgical snafu in 2010 that left one leg partially paralyzed, abruptly ending her chapter as a dancer and mountain athlete, Eugénie’s practice deepened to one of both physical and emotional rehabilitation. She credits this unexpected need to relearn the mechanics of her body as an adult the greatest and most valuable yoga lesson of her life (so far!).  

Today, she is excited to meet students wherever they are in their own yoga journey, offering a class that combines continuous flow with longer-held poses and a good amount of play, to encourage awareness of breath, core strength, alignment, and a taste for breaking the rules when it works better for our bodies. She lives on Samish Island with her partner Ken and their two pups, Frankie and Tilly, and escapes to the ocean every chance she can get.

Jessica Gigot


Jessica is a mother, poet, and farmer and became a RYT-200 in 2019. She appreciates how yoga, especially restorative and yin approaches, can empower students to find their own sense of belonging both on and off the mat. After birthing two children and several physically demanding seasons on her farm, Jessica realized she needed to walk in the world differently.

Jessica found that her yoga practice offered her a path to healing, body awareness, and deep inner strength that she is excited to share with others. When not in the yoga studio, you can find her tending her flock of sheep, playing music with her husband, or running around outside with her daughters.

Amanda Grove


Amanda is a life-long learner and she completed her 200 hour yoga teacher training in 2019 at Yandara Yoga Institute. Seeking to delve deeper into her personal practice, she has completed 100 hour trainings in: Bhakti yoga; Restorative and Yin yoga; and Sound Healing and Yoga Nidra.

Bringing life experience into her teaching and practice, Amanda encourages self exploration through movement and breath. Her presence is nurturing and her guidance focuses on personal awareness of healthy alignment in postures and self care of body, mind, and spirit.

Jill Pickering

Ashia Radke


A lifelong lover of learning, Ashia began practicing yoga in 2015 and found it to be an incredible avenue toward health, healing, growth, curiosity, and a more compassionate relationship with self. She completed her 80-hour acro yoga teacher training in 2020 and her 200-hour vinyasa yoga teacher training in 2021. She has since earned certificates in aerial yoga, yin yoga, children’s yoga, restorative yoga, and chair yoga, and became an RYT-500 in 2023.

She uses gentle guidance, problem-solving, precise cues, and oodles of encouragement to create a container in which students can find balance, enter flow state, and experience authentic moments of peace.

Mackenzie Rae


Mackenzie discovered her love for yoga over thirteen years ago. The impact it had on her life drew her deeper into studying alternative and holistic healing while she was in college. After she graduated in 2016, she traveled to Southeast Asia to immerse herself in a 200 hour teacher training through Zuna Yoga. Since then, she’s continued her studies of yoga and other healing modalities that she weaves into her private practice with clients. She’s currently immersed in a three year program studying Body Psychotherapy.

Her yoga classes have a strong somatic element leading people back home to their bodies. She helps her students lean into discomfort and cultivate a deeper, more loving connection with themselves.

Beth Rusk


Beth received her RYT-200 teacher certification in power yoga in 2016, and is presently working towards her 500RYT in Prajna yoga. Beth’s passion lies in helping others move optimally and be at home in their bodies. Her many years of practicing a variety of yoga styles and an intimate knowledge of anatomy as a massage therapist, enables her to focus on alignment while creatively weaving together postures and yogic philosophy. 

Her flow based classes are slow, strong and focused around being present and aware. She approaches yoga as a moving meditation, bringing strength, flexibility and mindful movement into each class. Beth’s light hearted spirit welcomes all levels of yogis and invites us to approach our practice with playfulness and acceptance to what is. Show up to her class ready to breathe, connect, flow and discover.

Rachel Scheib


Rachel strives to make a comfortable place for everyone to move, breathe, and maybe try something a little different. Born and raised in California, Rachel came to Bellingham in 2014 to attend WWU, and graduated in 2018. Rachel’s teaching style is informed by her own practice, as well her experience using yoga to aid recovery from a blunt force spinal injury— an incident that ultimately showed her how essential a personal yoga practice can be on the road to recovery. Through this Rachel found that yoga is not only useful in a recovery sense, but also a preventative sense, as well as a present sense, and now she aims to hold a space where people can benefit from all of these aspects. Rachel creates an atmosphere where students can feel present and comfortable to find their own balance between effort and ease, whether in challenging themselves or easing into whatever suits their movement needs that day.

Rachel received her 200 hour certificate in 2021 from Yandara Yoga Institute in Mexico, and is delighted to now bring her teaching to Bow Sanctuary. Her classes are structured in a vinyasa-like style, where ample time is given to settle in and warm up before moving into creative flows and breath-to-movement standing sequences.

Lindsey Swope


Lindsey Swope took her first yoga class in 1986 at the age of 21 and was immediately hooked.  She started teaching in 1997 when she moved to the Methow Valley, where she lived and taught for over 20 years.  During that time, she completed four yoga teacher trainings in various different styles, including Iyengar and Kundalini.  Lindsey has a strong connection to the world of Nature, holding degrees in Geology and Geography, and she has been walking a path of Earth-based spirituality for over 25 years.  Weaving these influences into her yoga helps her students find an experience of alignment and connection both within themselves and with the world around them.

Lindsey believes in the healing power of laughter and loves to combine structure and play in her classes, creating a safe place for inquiry and experimentation.  Yoga has been an invaluable tool in her journey through life and she deeply appreciates the wisdom gained over more than thirty years of practice.
