Yamuna is a Nia Brown Belt and 52 Moves Instructor. She has been practicing and teaching Nia since 2008, yet has been dancing through life, since she took her first ballet class at the age of 3. Yamuna has studied ballet, tap, and jazz dance, and also danced many broadway musical productions growing up. As an adult she has also studied and taught Iyengar Yoga. She's also enjoyed choreographing a number of musicals for students in grades K-8, though her favorite musical was her own childhood performance in West Side Story!
Yamuna brings spirit to her classes. She creates a comfortable, safe, inclusive enviroment where are feel warm and welcomed.
When she's not teaching Nia, you'll find her hanging out with her handsome twin teenage boys, cooking, playing Scrabble and walking through Portland's funky SE Hawthorne district, and searching out the best Americano au lait in the city.
