Moline Whitson

Moline is passionate about body/mind practices, including yoga, Qigong and TRE® bringing sensitivity and joy to her teaching. She began teaching Yoga in 2001 after receiving her Amrit Yoga certification from Yogi Amrit Desai, founder of Kripalu and Amrit Yoga. She’s also studied with teachers of the Iyengar tradition. “Yoga is a personal journey toward well-being, wholeness and peace. My intention is to offer quality classes taught in an atmosphere of comapassion, self-awareness and light-heartedness.” Additionally Moline has trained in the Martial Arts since 1984 and holds a 3rd degree black belt in Mo Duk Pai Kung Fu and currently enjoys practicing Qigong as well as yoga. Most recently she became a Certified TRE® (Tension & Trauma Releasing Exercises) Provider and is offering classes as well as individual sessions at Harmony Yoga. “TRE® is a wonderful adjunct to a Yoga practice. It helps unwind deep tension patterns in the body, reduce the build up of stress and teaches us to trust the innate healing capacity we possess.”

Carolyn Potts

Much of Carolyn’s life has been characterized by a spirit of play, inquiry and trust in the innate learning capacity of humans. She became an elementary school teacher after following these natural tendencies. Questions about spirit, body and mind brought her to yoga in 1999. She had the unexpected great fortune to train with such pioneering teachers as Rodney Yee, Donna Farhi and Norman Allard. She begins each class fresh with the understanding that we are not just our bodies; yet, to inhabit these bodies is to experience life as rich and full. Today, Carolyn continues to study as well as introduce adults to the world of yoga.

Megan Ford

Megan was introduced to yoga at her gym in a class taught by an instructor of Forest Yoga (a style of yoga known for its physical intensity.) She found that the strenuous classes allowed for deep relaxation during savasana and the resulting muscle soreness helped keep her grounded in her body throughout the week. Since those initial classes many years ago she has explored various styles of yoga and found that slower classes that encourage gentle movements and interoception are her favorites. With a background in physical therapy, massage therapy and mindful movement Megan strives to help people feel more at ease in their bodies by cultivating strength, stability and inner body awareness. You can expect her classes to be an evolving mix of functional movements, breath awareness, deep rest and a whole lot of curiosity. To register for this class contact or 503.901-0674

Miranda Lattimore

Miranda graduated from the University of South Carolina with a degree in Public Health and a minor in Women and Genders Studies. With the goal of bringing healing and wellness to marginalized communities, Miranda completed her Yoga Teacher Training in 2020 and Founded ZEN:MNM–a wellness company centering mindfulness, nature and movement–in 2022. She believes “every body is a yoga body,” and brings this approach to her classes with the understanding that each body will form asanas differently, offering variations with props and adjustments. In her classes, you can expect a themed flow, syncing breath with movement, tuning in to the mind, and a full body stretch.
Miranda finds her version of zen through the practice and study of yoga, the stillness of nature photography, journaling, and a consistent relationship with her therapist. Contact Miranda to register: email: or 864.415-5242

Ellie Justice

Ellie is delighted to have time to pursue her passion for yoga and to share this practice with others after 35 years in early education. Ellie completed a 200-hour Yoga Teacher Certification through HeartSong Yoga with Leslie Ellis. She is currently continuing her studies in a 300 Yoga Professional program led by Sarahjoy Marsh of the Daya Foundation; Ellie is greatly inspired by her current and past teachers.

Ellie’s classes are designed for both beginning and intermediate students; she offers options within postures to accommodate differing levels of flexibility and strength and gives clear cues for alignment. Her classes include longer holds in hatha yoga postures as well as playful sequences that link movement and breath. Ellie regularly offers the tools of meditation and breathwork alongside asana, and weaves in poetry, metaphor, and imagery to deepen the connection between mind and body. Ellie’s intention is to offer students support to cultivate a greater sense of emotional and physical well-being while finding joy in a shared movement practice.
