About the Facilitator(s)

Joel BenjaminJoel Benjamin

Joel Benjamin is very excited to be teaching a yoga retreat at Kalani- one of his most favorite places on the planet. He has been practicing yoga since 1998, and has been teaching since 2004. Joel believes that when the ancient yogis created what we refer to today as yoga, it was never their intention to design a series of exercises to develop "yoga butt," (even though this is how many in the West have come to view this 5,000 year old art form.) Yoga is a system of breathwork, mindfulness, and physical postures all designed to improve the quality of our lives by bringing us into the present moment, opening our hearts, and making us better human beings. At its core, Joel believes that the true intention of yoga is to create embodied presence and emotional responsiveness.

Joel has a BFA from Syracuse University in Theatre, and is certified to teach yoga from Pacific Yoga, and master teacher Max Strom. He is also a member of the Yoga Alliance. Joel owns Yoga Shack, a private yoga school in the Georgetown neighborhood of Seattle.

jaRed has since deepened his understanding of teaching vinyasa flow yoga through intensives with Duncan Wong and Shiva Rea.

About the Facilitator(s)

Lynne took her first yoga class while in college, at the YMCA in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Her first instructor and mentor, Trudy Davis, encouraged Lynne to teach when she moved to Alaska in 1977.

Encouraged by Donald Moyer, she attended her first yoga Intensive at the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute in Pune, India in 1981. She was certified to teach yoga by BKS Iyengar in 1984. Subsequent trips to Pune followed in 1988 and 1997.

Lynne continues to study and be inspired by teachers of both the Iyengar and Anusara traditions of yoga. Judith Lasater, Donald Moyer, Fr.

Lynne founded the Inner Dance Yoga Studio in 1982 and has overseen its growth and development into a thriving center with 20 plus instructors.

Lynne grew up in Wisconsin. Her love of travel and degree in Environmental Geology brought her to play and work in Alaska in 1975.

Together they enjoy camping, flying, overseas travel and their wonderful community of family and friends. Lynne also loves to sing, garden, bike and hike.
