Calie began as a dancer, movement has always been a passion for her. She spent 15 years working as a Graphic Designer and Art Director. Sitting at a computer all day started to wreak havoc on her well being, mentally, physically, and creatively. This havoc is what led her back to movement in the form of a yoga class. For a period of time as she was going through major career transitions, yoga became her daily solace. Once she started taking Forrest yoga classes, she found her breath, the ability to go inward and was inspired to move on to teacher training.
Calie received her 200 hour certification in Vinyasa from YogaWorks. She is currently working towards her 500 hour certification with Jason Crandell. She teaches Vinyasa, Power Flow and Hatha classes.
Her classes focus on helping students experience yoga as a beautifully freeing adventure, where they can move, breathe, get centered, and feel stronger.
Originally from Hawaii, Calie now lives in Alameda with her husband, son and daughter.
