Kelly Dorey

Adaptive Yoga Instructor


I am a practicing medical Speech Pathologist. I have been a yoga student for over 15 years and became an RYT-200 yoga teacher in 2014. I received training and continue to learn adaptive yoga methods with Matthew Sanford of Mind Body Solutions. I attempt to bring an understanding of the body to my students in addition to accessible spirituality very much rooted in real life. I try to speak with honesty about life’s little and big frustrations and how our practice on the mat is practice for real life. In addition to the physical yoga practice I hope to promote a deeper relationship with the heart and true self through alignment, breath, and investigation of our unique bodies. I am transformed by adaptive yoga and I love that in this modality we get to experiment and do yoga together!


Nicole Hamilton

Adaptive Yoga Instructor


I have been practicing yoga since 2010 and teaching since 2014. Grounded by breath, I offer a gentle, healing approach to even the most powerful yoga poses. I am trained in a variety of yoga styles – including hatha, yin and vinyasa. I have trained and continue to learn adaptive yoga methods with Matthew Sanford of Mind Body Solutions. When I am not teaching or on the mat myself I can be found in my South Seattle garden or exploring the mountains with my sweet dog, Astrid.

Julie Fournier

Adaptive Yoga Instructor

E-RYT-200, OYI
I became a certified yoga teacher in 2013 after twelve years of international work. I
found in yoga a set of practices that help me be more connected, compassionate and
resilient and want to share that with others. My teaching is influenced by my interest in
mindfulness and my desire to empower people living with chronic illness, trauma, stress
and aging. I currently offer group classes and private sessions to a wide range of
individuals, from very beginners to those approaching the end of life. I obtained my
Opening Yoga Instructor (OYI) designation from Mind Body Solutions in 2018 and will
soon complete my 500H advanced teacher training on the Art of Adapting Yoga at
Phinney Ridge Yoga (WA).
