What you'll do
Enjoy a warming all-levels hatha yoga class surrounded by plants and natural fibers in the beautiful loft studio of Modern Macrame. The studio is the production home of longtime Portland artist, Emily Katz. Nestled among studios of other local artists and craftsmen, the Modern Macrame space is cozy and calm, with high ceilings, huge windows and lots of natural light. The class is open to all ranges of yoga experience, beginners welcome. My background is in hatha yoga and yoga therapy, and my approach to teaching is inclusive of all different body types, honoring the body's innate wisdom. Feel free to read more about my work at bodyceremony.com. At the end of class, we will enjoy a cup of tea by a local artisan tea company, T Project and you will have time to look more closely at the macrame artwork. There are many other exceptional shops, artist spaces and restaurants close to the studio, which you can choose to explore after our yoga class. I am happy to point you in the right direction!

Yoga Mats extra yoga mats provided if you don't have one of your own
My work combines yoga therapy, holistic cooking, and creative practice as ceremonial interrelated healing modalities. I encourage slowness, the invitation for inner and outer spaciousness, and connection to our senses through ritualistic meditation of the body. I've been practicing yoga since I was 12 years old and teaching yoga professionally for the past 4 years. I weave, sew, work with leather, clay, etc. so I'm excited to bring you into a magical, art-filled, hands-on environment in which you will be able to sweetly explore your own body and breath.
