Blakey’s mother took her to her first yoga class in 1987,she never forgot the sense of quiet peace she felt in her very first svasana. Throughout her life she kept returning to her mat and the vedic philosophies that inspire the practice.
In 2006, she came back to yoga to deepen her recovery from drug addiction and improve her health. In the last 10 years, the spiritual practices of the 12 steps and yoga have interwoven to create a way of life for her. Through these practices, Blakey has come to believe that the body is a communicator, a barometer and assistant to the spiritual condition.
Her teaching is guided by lightheartedness, a down-to-earth attitude, and the hope that students will experience the power and comfort of their own true selves. She has been honored to be grand parented in to the second wave of Yoga Therapists by the International Association of Yoga Therapists.

Students will move slowly and mindfully, deepening their understanding of poses while quieting the mind through this breath focused practice. Because this style has less weight bearing activity for the upper body it is perfect for students who are newer to yoga or recovering from upper body injuries.
- Brand new beginners.
- Students healing from an injury or with an injury.
- Intermediate students deepening current practice with alignment work.
