Galen was first introduced to yoga growing up while practicing ballet, piano, and voice and it immediately felt like a natural extension of her interests and studies. She loved the physicality and dance-like movement and caught the yoga bug right away, but found herself busy living abroad, attending college, and working in New York City. Looking for a new way of life, Galen moved to Portland and signed up for YoYoYogi's 200 hour yoga teacher certification course under the direction of Alex and Terri Cole where daily yoga practice and study quickly left her feeling more balanced, secure, and happy. Since then, she has also completed Elevate Yoga Trainings, an advanced teacher training with Jill Knouse, and is currently pursuing her 500 hour yoga certification. Galen hopes to share all the gifts that yoga has to offer with each of her students through her creative flow classes.
