Senior yoga teachers Elizabeth Gray and Karen Guzak are partnering to bring the ultimate in yoga teacher training to Snohomish.

The RYT 200 Yoga Alliance certified program immerses you in the teachings and practices of Viniyoga, a style of yoga that adapts the various means and methods of practice to the unique condition, needs, and interests of each individual.

The seven-month training begins January 10, 2019, and culminates in a five-day, four-night yoga retreat in July.

    Yoga Circle Studio

    Karen Guzak opened the studio in 2003 and expanded it to 1,800 square feet, double its size, in 2012, which is when Elizabeth Gray joined the circle as a teacher. The image above is of a party celebrating the studio’s 10th year.

    The studio features two bathrooms, one in the studio, another off the kitchen/shop which is off the entrance lobby. The studio features a cork floor and is fully equipped with blankets, bolsters, blocks, and straps. Plus, we are proud of our full studio long wall with straps and hooks for Wall Yoga. Both ends of the studio are equipped with full wall mirrors that can be covered with sari fabric curtains, the same material fashioned as tents hanging in the ceiling to absorb sound. Last but not least, the studio features two sound systems!

    Training will take place in two locations: primary in the studio at 707 Pine Avenue and secondarily at Karen’s art studio called AngelArmsWorks as it’s in a renovated church located at 230 Avenue B, corner of Third and Avenue B — a nice walk apart.

    Karen and Elizabeth encourage a visit, perhaps take a class which is the best way to enjoy the studio. They are happy to answer any of your questions.
