In 2008, she began to work and study at Inner Vision Yoga. As a newlywed in 2011, Julia “sailed off into the sunset” to Encinitas, CA, known as the yoga capital of the United States. Then she felt guided to make her way up the coast landing on the Olympic Peninsula in the summer of 2013.

Kalee initially began practicing yoga as an elective course while attending college. Instantly she was hooked and continued her practice daily, oftentimes practicing outdoors in Sedona, Arizona. As her continuing love and compassion for yoga grew, she eventually ended up in Wilmington, North Carolina at Longwave Yoga where she earned her 200-hour teaching certification as well as an 8-week apprenticeship and a SUP (stand up paddleboard) Yoga teaching certification. In 2020 Kalee returned to the Pacific Northwest to live closer to her family.
Kalee specializes in:
She creates a sense of harmony by uniting the body and mind in each class. Kalee likes to include music and chants during meditations with the use of her harmonium and Tibetan singing bowl. Rejuvenation can be found through meditation and asana and Kalee strives to make this accessible in her class.
As a Holistic Health Practitioner, Yoga Teacher, Intuitive Massage Therapist, and Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapist for the past 40 years, I have integrated a variety of yoga styles that I have practiced and been trained in and Dantayama Yoga was the result. The most defining feature of Dantayama Yoga is, “Support=Release”. Properly supported yoga poses allow muscles to let go of tension and return to their natural, relaxed state. In order to quiet the mind, we must first quiet the body to access a deeper, sweeter sense of self. We like to affectionately refer to this style as rehab yoga!!

From an early age, I have been fascinated by the impact words, colors, and music have on our inner and outer worlds. And, throughout my life I have explored this impact in multiple ways. From using my words to open the minds of my clients when I was in the business world, to bringing people’s beings to life in my pastel portraits, I have always striven to help people articulate and find their truths. And then there is the music and the movement that helps us anchor those truths in our bodies, most often through dance.
This lifetime passion to better understand and embody the power of words, colors, and music, and to use those tools to help myself and others become our clearest selves, has led me to explore multiple communication, creation, and transformation modalities over the years. And thankfully, 2 years ago that passionate exploration led me to Chakradance, Rhythm for Your Soul. I cannot imagine a more beautiful, complex, yet uncomplicated way to feed my passions, and bring deep peace and healing to the people I serve. Come dance with me…feel the words, embrace the colors, live the music!
In addition to being a Chakradance Facilitator I am a:
Michael Yeager has been practicing and teaching Tai Chi for over thirty- five years. He teaches three different styles of Tai Chi–Yang, Sun and Chen, as well as the straight sword, broad sword and cane forms.
In addition, he practices and teaches several styles of Kung Fu. His website is www.goldenbambootaichi.com an ongoing history and resource for his students, containing videos of the Tai Chi exercises and forms taught in his classes.
Michael retired as a Mental Health Therapist in 2009. He is a writer. His blog address is www.aretiredboomer.blogspot.com and his published novel is called Above the Labyrinth. He is currently working on a second novel.
She founded Artemisia Healing Arts in 2019 with the desire to be of service. At the time, she was studying Reiki and Tibetan Cranial was given the opportunity to serve the Tacoma and Sequim community. As she stepped into the work she was guided on how to tune in with subtle energies. When engaging with the archetypes such as Art, Harmony, and Nature’s healing frequencies we easily tap into Joy, Passion, and Prosperity Consciousness. We then begin to receive unique gifts and can inspire others by simply being ourselves in the most natural and authentic way. The Universe supports us completely as we align with our purpose.
