Iris has been practicing asana off and on since childhood. She is originally from Vermont, but has been in Anchorage for the past 9 years. Now deeply in love with Alaska's land, sea, and sky, Iris loves playing outside. She started sharing her yoga practice in March of 2016, after finishing her 200hr Ayurveda-Yoga Teacher Training through Alaska Pacific University. Currently, Iris is following a path of Jnana yoga (of wisdom and knowledge) as an undergraduate psychology student at UAA.
Some of Iris’ favorite things about yoga practice and classes are the adaptability of the practice to meet people where they are, the connection it fosters between practitioners, and the noticeable transformational powers of the practice on the whole self. Iris hopes to share these experiences in her classes, which focus on balance, alignment, breath, and awareness of the whole self. Her practice ranges from a creative Vinyasa flow, to longer powerful holds, all the way to a restorative Yin practice.
Iris recently returned from India, and is teaching Sundays @ 5 PM until she decides to travel the world again—so catch her while you can!
