Her peaceful, yet adventurous style creates a fun and accepting space to practice. She strongly believes that yoga is for everyone, and is always inspired by each individual’s unique energy. 

Lavinia Budurovici

When Ayurveda and yoga found Lavinia, everything changed. Both helped her learn patience, presence, body awareness, how to breathe more deeply, self-love, and much more. This has inspired her to complete an immersion training program at an ashram in India where her practice deepened further. Her classes offer traditional and creative movements, pranayama breathing techniques, meditation, and mindfulness that reflect those experiences, with an authentic and non-judgemental teaching style. Modification and advanced options are made available for new students and experienced yogis so that all can reach their potential. 

Tabor Waterstreet

I was born and raised in this wonderful little town of Forest Grove.I thrive on movement, mindfulness & enjoying the moment! Through my years of travelling in and outside the country I have been practicing yoga for 18 years and teaching for 12 years. I am a triathlete, swim coach and overall activity enthusiast. I have found that yoga can be applied to any lifestyle.  

I love being a husband & dad of two boys.

Yoga brings a beautiful grounding to my life & I blend all that I have learned into a unique yoga experience, with a perpetual stoke to bring this yoga lifestyle to others. With no expectations or ending to the yoga practice, the ability to grow as a human is limitless. I am forever grateful for everything that has happened in my life & living moment to moment has taken me mindfully to the next experience! I teach a Vinyasa Flow style class, focusing on the breath to guide the body through movement, core stability in poses & stillness in the mind to enlighten the spirit within.  My philosophy of life is to BREATHE, MOVE & RECOVER !
