Yoga Informed Life Inspired
Mikki Trowbridge is an Oregon yoga and SUP yoga teacher and creator of Yoga + Beer pairings. Her classes are anatomically informed and soulfully inspired and reflect what shes found to be empowering from the time shes spent on my own mat in practice. She aspires to infuse her passion for the practice, her love of music and genuine, life-inspired musings into each class. As an analytical human, Mikki enjoys an alignment-based approach to asana, but believes that the alignment of postures should be something that is learned from the inside out, not from written rules. She strives to invite freedom of exploration, observation, and inquiry into each class, so that over time students discover their authentic alignment, on the mat, and off.
Mikki has been teaching in Salem, Oregon for over 10 years with studio classes at Indigo Wellness Center and Yoga Studio, along with private classes at a variety of local businesses and organizations. She also hosts regular Yoga + Beer events at Oregon breweries and offers StandUp Paddle Board Yoga classes in Pacific City, Oregon.

Yoga Professor – Sofie Blicher
My first memorable experience with yoga was when I travelled to Goa, India in 2007. I instantly was drawn to the body and mind connection that yoga provides and as I returned to Denmark , I continued my journey with yoga. I evolved my understanding on the holistic human view as I completed my Bachelors in Psychomotor Therapy and Relaxation.
My whole life, I have always been very physically active, horseback riding, sports, and competitive swimming, and I managed to make it my living sharing the passion for movement as I became a fitness instructor, and have been enjoying motivating people for the last decade. Fitness and exercise became such a passion of mine that I decide to expand my knowledge and completed my dual masters degree in Exercise Physiology and Nutritional Science at San Diego State University.
All through my time as a fitness instructor and student, yoga was always with me. As yoga was always my sacred space for a physical challenge and increased body awareness, I decided to share that joy with others, and I completed my 200 hours Yoga Alliance certificate. I am eager to help others become physically stronger with a deeper understanding of their body and mind connection.

Corvallis + Albany Teacher
Caits love for yoga extends back a decade and bringing beer into the mix started almost 3 years ago at Block 15 Brewery in Corvallis when she taught her first Yoga and Beer class. A natural compliment to each other, Cait found that bringing people together for yoga and a beer was a perfect way to start teaching after completing her 200RYT at LiveWell Studio in 2016.
Drawn to yoga to compliment her active lifestyle, Cait has found yoga to be the ideal foundation for not only improving athletic performance but finding inner peace. Her teaching style stems from 14 years of dancing and her personal practice in Ashtanga Yoga. Strong and fluid with a focus on breath and alignment. Caits aims to challenge all levels of students to find their inner strength through movement, laughter and sharing a delicious post class pint.
When she is not teaching yoga you can find Cait chasing her 3 and 5 year old daughters around the Willamette Valley, running marathons, and mountain biking with her husband. Cait has enjoyed the opportunity to bring yoga into her corporate life as well. As a software consultant and MBA student, she has had the opportunity to teach at a few software conferences as well as share her love for yoga with fellow MBA students. Cait loves seeing the “busy bees” of corporate america reap the benefits of a yoga practice and hopes to continue to spread the yoga beer love to many more students and executives in the valley.

Phd Kinesiology With An Emphasis In Exercise Physiology Ryt
As a child who was raised among athletes, I have always loved playing sports and being physically active. Without hesitation, I studied Exercise Science for my undergraduate degree to gain more knowledge about human movement sciences. Then I went on to earn my Ph.D. degree in Kinesiology with an emphasis in Exercise Physiology from Iowa State University. I have taught many courses in the field of Exercise Science. Throughout my education and career, I primarily focused on physical fitness, but truly felt there was a lack of connection and balance between the physical body and mind.
Then I started wondering how to heal the distressed body, while also thinking about how to reconnect the body and mind. One of the solutions that I found was the study of yoga. As I started to practice more yoga, my physical body was able to start to connect with my mind, and ultimately, find the balance in between. Since then, I have loved practicing yoga, which lead me to earn the 200-hour San Diego Miramar College Certification of Performance in Yoga and the 200-hr Yoga Alliance Certificate to teach and spread the power of yoga to others.
Lastly, I love spending time with my husband and our three kids. I love spending time outdoors, on the beach and in the nature in our sunny San Diego. I currently teach yoga activity classes at San Diego Miramar College. I hope you join the great journey of yoga with me and the rest of our program.
