Thank you Source Yoga for nurturing my body, feeding my soul, and allowing a safe place for practice. You have taught me to trust in the process of community for many things. I am grateful that you have come into my life.

Source Yoga Teacher Highlight – Tabitha Mattson

Tabitha joined the Source Yoga teaching staff in 2014, and students have been enjoying her gentle nature since then. She brings an inner quiet to all she does. Her classes combine a focus of proper alignment and breath awareness to train the mind to be present; while not forgetting the joy and fun that goes along with a well-rounded yoga practice.  She encourages students to listen to and honor their bodies. Her hope is to help students experience the peace that can seem so elusive and empower them to bring what they learn on the mat into their daily lives. Practicing yoga since:  2008 Teaching yoga since: 2014 Where/when do you teach? Gentle Yoga at Source Yoga University Place on Tuesdays/Thursdays at 11am and Prenatal Yoga at Source Yoga North Tacoma on Sundays at 4pm (on hiatus for the summer – returning in September) Hobbies/interests: Reading, crocheting, trying to get the hang of knitting but not having much success…yet :’) What non-yoga book are you reading/did you recently read? The Daughter’s Walk.  It’s an interesting, inspiring book.  It’s fiction but based on the true story of a mother and daughter who, in 1896, walk from Spokane, WA to New York City. What yoga book do you recommend?   The Yamas and Niyamas by Deborah Adele.  When I first started practicing yoga, I didn’t have any interest in the philosophy.  Then along came a teacher, Karissa Bryant, and this book.   The philosophy of yoga and how it applies to our daily life came alive for me! What’s your favorite yoga practice/pose and why? Lately my two favorites are low lunge and... read more

Source Yoga Teacher Highlight – Lori Ferry

Lori Ferry just recently joined our teaching staff.  She feels very blessed to guide as a 200RYT Yoga Teacher and Reiki Master. Her passions towards Mindfulness Meditation, Yoga Nidra, Yin Yoga and Restorative Yoga as well as Energy Healing work flows intuitively in her daily life and loves to share this passion with others during her classes. With her own daughter as a military veteran she has deep compassion for supporting our Community-in-Service and feels very privileged to guide individuals on their own journey towards vitality and joy. She is excited to become a grandmother this summer! Practicing yoga since: I discovered yoga when my husband and I ditched our corporate jobs and moved to Costa Rica in 2011.  By January of 2012 I had discovered the wonders of yoga and quickly developed a daily practice.  With the sense of finding yoga later in life sometimes I would attend classes twice-a-day in order to “catch-up”. Teaching yoga since: I have been teaching yoga since September 2013.  I attended Authentic Yoga Teacher Training in Scottsdale Arizona with David Oliver with the intention to experience a more intense study of yoga.  But this thing called yoga is just too amazing not to share, so when the studio owners where I practiced stated “You-are-ready!” I nervously accepted their gracious offer to guide a slow-flow class on Saturday afternoons and to sub for other yoga teachers.  Teaching has inspired my own personal practice. Where/when do you teach?  I am privileged to teach yoga at Source Yoga, University Place, on Wednesday’s Relax & Restore at 7pm  and Thursday’s Level I at 4:30pm.   Hobbies/interests: I... read more

Source Yoga Teacher Highlight – Tiffany Speir

Tiffany Speir has been a long time Source teacher –  her first class teaching with us was in 2011. But really, she has been moving her whole life, starting ballet at age 4, teaching dance and group exercise for 20 years, and falling in love with yoga in 2004.  Tiffany teaches sustainable vinyasa yoga; she emphasizes biomechanical awareness during physical practice in order to prevent injury while also supporting mental and emotional peace. By holding and moving between poses with strength and ease, students can enjoy the benefits of increased self-awareness and also move their mental focus to the here and now.  She gears classes for mixed levels and offers options to each practice so students are able to fully enjoy each session and bring yoga to their body each day. Practicing yoga since:  2003 Teaching yoga since:  2005 Where/when do you teach?   Source Yoga University Place – Saturdays, 9-10:15am (Active Flow), Sundays 10:30-11:45am (Active Flow), Mondays, 6-7:15pm (Level 1-2) Hobbies/interests:  Cello, reading What non-yoga book are you reading/did you recently read?  Dark Invasion – about pre-WWI America What yoga book do you recommend?  Your Body Speaks Your Mind. The body shows us what we are unconsciously ignoring, denying, or repressing.  The book provides a practical way to learn the language of your body so you can understand how your thoughts and feelings directly affect your physical health. What’s your favorite yoga practice/pose and why?  Warrior II – It is a pose in which it is possible to explore the balance between strength and ease, to start to really tune into your own body, or alternatively to let the physical go... read more

Source Yoga Mission

Source Yoga is coming upon its 11th year, I can’t believe it. Our North Tacoma studio opened its doors in July of 2005, and the University Place studio opened 5 years ago this last May. I am incredibly grateful to still be here, and that I am able to keep doing what I love – teaching and providing a space for people to come and be. I have often said that the two things that have provided the most spiritual growth for me in this life have been: being a mother and owning a business. Both of these things take commitment, dedication, patience, humility, a willingness to grow from our mistakes, and a willingness to evolve into an ever truer expression of ourselves. A business that has been in existence for more than 10 years has seen a lot of evolution, and I recently sat down at my computer to reflect on this, and to create a statement that expresses who Source Yoga is now as opposed to 5 years and 10 years ago. Below is a NEW mission statement for Source Yoga, and some qualities that you can count on to be present in each and every class at Source Yoga. I am filled with gratitude for you, the students who have been dedicated over so many years, and to the truly spectacular team of teachers that embody this mission so beautifully in their teaching.   Source Yoga Mission Source Yoga is a place to simply be, accept ourselves as we are in this moment, and connect with our innate wisdom. Through the cultivation of present moment awareness through... read more
