Trisha McBride is an intuitive and empathic teacher, honing and developing these specific skills for over two centuries. She understands the human body by connecting on a cellular and emotional level to others. This gives her an advantage to tune into her students specific needs. Trisha is a spiritualist by nature and a mystic at heart.
Trisha has been a belly dance instructor since 2003 and a full time yoga instructor since 2010, teaching under a thousand hour RYT certificate via Dana Baptiste’s In Body Academy, SLC, UT. She has dedicated her life to healing through what she calls “movement medicine,” the union of yoga, dance and fluid movement.  Using a strong understanding that we have the tools within our spirit to break open the proverbial cage and transform through the expression of movement.

An avid scholar of myth and philosophy, Trisha weaves myth and uses iconography within her teachings to connect students to a deeper and ancient part of themselves.  "Through this movement we heal ourselves and honor our teachers and ancestors."

Sibyl Buck is a passionate teacher who's warm love for her students is palpable. Teaching is Sibyl's third career, after stints as a high-fashion model in the '90's, and later as a touring bass player and back-up vocalist, which careers took her several times around the world. She brings the depth of her life experience to her teaching, which is rich in metaphor, insight and authenticity. Sibyl has completed her first year of study in the Yoga Therapy Certificate program at Loyola Marymount University, and her offerings as a yoga teacher are devoted to health and well being. Sibyl's influence from Annie Carpenter, Jasmine Leib, Jillian Pranksy and Maty Ezraty is evidenced by a style balanced between strength-building, alignment focused movement, and deeply meditative and relaxed stillness. Sibyl is an anatomy and physiology enthusiast, which knowledge she shares during class, leading students to a deeper understanding of the why and how of yoga, and their own inner workings. Expect to find yourself propped up by pillows, blankets and blocks at least once, and to gain a better understanding of yourself from the outside in through both physically active and passive practice.


Classes will range from powerful and strengthening, to deeply relaxing and restoring. During active practice, key muscle groups will be realigned and strengthened, focusing on basic postures and breathing. The yoga asanas, or postures, are designed to peel back the residue of our daily lives, and reconnect us to the primal flow of energy occurring naturally within us. During restorative practice, the body is supported by bolsters and other props so that muscle activity can be surrendered, and the benefits of the postures can happen passively as guided meditation helps the nervous system shift gears into the relaxation response, slowing the brain waves to a healing Alpha or Theta frequency. 

Regardless of the intensity of class, movements will be slow and focused, with attention to safety and working within limitations of practitioners. All classes will be safe for all levels, and will include detailed instruction, both for how to align the body, and for how to explore the more abstract, inner dimensions of the essential self, where we are most closely connected to the source of life itself. We will reset the relationship between the brain and the body, to experience more harmony with our own bodies, and with the larger world  around us. You will leave feeling prepared to take the first steps toward what you envision for the new season of your life.

Discover Maui 


A truly classic tropical experience, Maui is the end all be all of island destinations. Active volcanoes, crystal blue waters, Hawaiian island culture, and a magic energy make Maui one of the most enchanted places on Earth. Stand above a sea of clouds high atop Haleakala. Watch a 45-foot whale breach off the coast of Lahaina. Lose count of the waterfalls along the road as you maneuver the hairpin turns of the Hana highway. From the scenic slopes of fertile Upcountry Maui to beaches that have repeatedly been voted among the best in the world, a visit to the Valley Isle recharges the senses. But like every good magic trick, you’ll have to see it for yourself to believe it.
