Partneres & Allies
Our method of teaching from a partnership, non-hierarchical perspective comes from Integrated Movement Therapy (IMT), a yoga-based therapy modality created by Molly Lannon Kenny. IMT is centered in each person's inherent wholeness. For more info about IMT, please see the tab above.
Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU)
We have been teaching regular classes at Richmond Clinic for their community since 2012. Patients can access chair yoga classes and adaptive yoga classes three days a week at Richmond.
We teach four six-week series per year for people with Traumatic Brain Injuries & their caretakers. These classes are free to the public, and applications can be found at the LoveYourBrain website.
We are grateful to teach yoga, meditation and mindfulness to Catholic Charities staff (both English and Spanish-language classes) so that they can continue to serve people impacted by social injustice.
We have a great deal of overlap with Living Yoga in our teachers, and are grateful for their constant commitment to social equity and delivery of yoga to trauma-impacted communities, especially correctional facilities and addiction recovery centers. We support them, as we are able, in donation of studio space, fundraisers and collaboration.
We have been providing volunteer yoga teaching at the Old Town Recovery Center since 2012. We are inspired by the work of resident psychologist, Dr. Phil Shapiro, and his "Healing Power" books that utilize a non-dogmatic, spiritual approach to pain management. We utilize his 100 healing qualities for our "dharma talk" topics of the month at Unfold.
We feel honored to be able to teach at several Home Forward housing facilities. Home Forward is the largest provider of affordable housing in the state of Oregon to those who encounter barriers to housing because of income, disability or special need.
