yoga nerd out and inspiration time with longtime teacher and friend @mattnelson_yoga 🤓♥️. We don’t take good selfies, and that’s just one of many cool things about us 😂.
Portland folks, check out Matt’s lovely breath-centric, mindful movement classes at @thepeoplesyogapdx! I really love what he’s up to.

It's Wednesday! ✨💫🌱 Today, focus on where you are, not where you think you "should" be. Be grateful to yourself for the steps that you take every day to grow and learn. The more you take time to appreciate your process and acknowledge your efforts, the better your relationship with growth will become! Happy Humpday Friends! We got this! #thepeoplesyogapdx #yogaeverydamnday #selfcare #TPYhumpdays #tpytips
It's always a fun time when we get to shout out our teachers! 🌱This is Megan! You can usually catch a class from her on Tuesday or Sundays, in the meantime here's a little more about her! 👇
"As a child, my favorite wrestler was Hulk Hogan. When I was 16 I fell in love for the first time... with Mexico. It’s still my favorite place to visit. When I was 29 I ran the whole wildwood trail with some help from my friends. I’ll never do that again. Though I do still enjoy trail running, I also like sleeping. I am a certified yoga therapist, a Brave Birth doula, and pretty obsessed with the pelvic floor." Thanks Megan for choosing to teach with us ✨😊🤗 #thepeoplesyogapdx #yogaeverydamnday #selfcare #tpyteachers #pnw #portlandyoga

Teacher Tuesday has arrived (and it's actually on a Tuesday)! This week here are some behind-the-scenes moments of her life when she's not teaching in one of our studios 💃🌟💥
Stephanie is passionate about all things sacred, and loves to explore the world, creating and interacting with nature, color, and beauty. She’s obsessed with hot springs, and any other natural water source, and gets into healing waters any chance she gets. One of her main missions in life is to create through music and video, so stay tuned for her release this Friday on her 33rd bday! #thepeoplesyogapdx #tpyteachers #pnw #portlandyoga #selfcare
Tips and Tricks for developing your pose - nothing is perfect but the smallest things can make the biggest differences. This week @sarahdiedrick shares some quick adjustments to bring intention into our Utkatasana Chair Pose - so sit back and relax 😜 ✨💪#thepeoplesyogapdx #yoga #yogaforeveryone #selfcare #tpytips #pnw #yogaeverydamnday
It’s Teacher Tuesday! (Ok we know it’s really Friday but any day of the week is a good day to celebrate our awesome teachers) and this week we’re introducing you too Pam Blair 🥳 here’s a note from her: “I love being outside and moving!!! When I was two, I banged my head against the glass screen door to get my Mom to open it. Geesh!! She loves telling that story 😊
I’m still pretty adamant but a bit more graceful about it. Biking to the Pearl in a fancy dress and heels to show a luxury condo or to show houses on a beautiful day is not unusual for me. I can’t be shy about taking care of my needs so I fit it in when I can!”#thepeoplesyogapdx #tpylovenotes #yogapants
This is a reminder. Be free and honest into how your day and life is going when you are asked. You are not a burden to the people around you if you tell them you’re not doing okay. Own your truth so that you can grow and move forward! And remember that not everyday is an amazing one but keep going in-spite of that. Happy hump day everyone - you got this! 🥳 #thepeoplesyogapdx #tpyhumpdays #selfcare #pnw #yogaforeveryone
current favorite warm up, sped up x2 (although you could do it this speed too).
Warms ankles, knees, hips, hammies, whole spine, shoulders, and works balance. Plus it helps me connect with my breath and feels dance-y 💃🏻 🤤

Dear Belmont Studio @thepeoplesyogapdx : .
You were the first studio I came to when I moved to Portland, back in 2014. You were the first studio in Portland to offer me a full lot of classes, and the first studio here where I felt truly at home. After leaving @truyogarochester to move across the country, I worried that I’d never find another studio that was so welcoming, so beautifully simple, that celebrated yoga in such a pure and honest form. (Tru: you left me some big boots to fill!) But in People’s Yoga, I found my (west coast) yoga family. I am delighted to see you grow, and to spend the next two weeks in an interim space that will no doubt be hilariously cramped, and will certainly make us even MORE excited for the big move to Hawthrone & 40th on January 20!! Thank you, dear Belmont studio, for giving us space for our community to evolve; I cannot wait to continue to evolve with you. Happy New Year.

Super easy supported bridge, perfect for #wintersolstice
practice! 🔈sound on for cues.
You don’t need a gazillion props at home to practice restorative yoga poses. Love this one and it only requires 2 blankets.
Learned this in @laurelbeversdorf’s great restorative class from @jenni_rawlings online class library. I highly recommend subscribing to Jenni’s class library. So many creative, thoughtful movement classes with lots of awesome teachers for like 9 bucks a month, just sayin.
Take 5 minutes and try this one. 🤤

Whether it's that one pose you haven't quite got - or something else - remember that all good things take time!

It's Teacher Tuesday! This week we lift up the wonderful Sarah Diedrick! 🎊✨ She is new to Portland and hails from Vermont - here's a sneak-peek into her life outside of TPY: Sarah's first love is writing. She adores poetry and is working on her first book of poetry as we speak. (👀 better keep an eye out!) She thinks that's why she loves yoga so much - by finding rich poetry in all of the ancient texts and philosophy. Sarah tries to weave that aspect into all of her classes. She also LOVES to dance and has been getting into more dance classes, especially hip-hop and reggaeton 💃💃💃 #thepeoplesyogapdx #tpyteachers #yogaforeveryone #yogaeverydamnday
Start or renew your practice in @thatsnotayogapose ’s Foundations One workshop! We will examine the basic yoga postures while focusing on the breathing practices that are an essential piece of this ancient practice. Jan. 31st to Mar. 7th from 7:15-8:15pm at SE studio....coming to 40th and Hawthorne soon! #thepeoplesyogapdx #yogaforeveryone #beherenow

you don’t have to stand on your hands to work a handstand, know what I mean? 🤸♀️
Some handstand prep stuff we played with in class this week. Video is x 2.5, slow and steady for 💪🏽 and 🧠.
In the first bit, working on taking the backbend out of shoulder flexion (arms overhead). This might translate to easier balance and more integrity in your handstand 🤸♀️
Love love love the wrist push-ups for building strength in wrists/fingers/forearms. Learned that one from @yogadetour. Do more reps than I show here. You can totally do it while watching The Great British Baking Show, bonus. 🤸♀️
What are some of your favorite handstand preps? 🤸♀️

We hope that you feel that you all are free to come to any of your studios, as you are, and to take what you need with 0 expectations. Have a great week, and remember, IT'S OKAY. 🌱#thepeoplesyogapdx #yogaforeveryone #beherenow #beherenow

Not the most exciting yoga video you’ll find on Instagram 😬... but if you make the blanket round, it’s surprisingly harder than it looks!
Never in my 44 years have I all of the sudden needed to put my feet behind my head. But walk/balance on unstable surfaces? On the regular. Which is why I love practicing and teaching this kind of stuff (not that the fancy flashy poses don’t have their place).
In Portland right now, walking down the street means navigating uneven sidewalks, wet slippery leaves 🍁, puddles and mud 🌧. The #yogaish
play in this video helps build our proprioception, balance, and strengthens our feet and all the way up the chain (ankles, knees, hips, etc). Also, it’s hard to stay serious when doing it, added bonus. 😊
Video is sped up x2.5, take your time.

Hi friends 👋🏼 as we grow together in our practices, it seems we’re growing in numbers as well! Thank you to everyone who has filled our SE Belmont studio so full over the years! It’s been so full in fact, that we happily announce that on January 1st, our SE Belmont location will be moving just a 10 minute walk away to Hawthorne. This will allow for 20 more mat spaces, which allows us to share more practice. Thank you all so much! It’s because of you we have the privilege of growing together. More information to come 😊🙌🏼✨ #thepeoplesyogapdx
“Say, Abby, what are you so excited about that has you prancing around the beaches of Baja?!”
