Audra is a mother, an entrepreneur, a community leader, a writer, a yogi, and a mindfulness practitioner. Audra owned her first business as a single mama at the age of 25. Since then she has gone on to create Love Hive Yoga which operates in Portland, Oregon, and now functions as an online media company. She has trained over a hundred yoga teachers, written a book and published essays, led international and local retreats, and heart achingly loves the practices of Yoga and meditation. Audra experienced a spontaneous awakening to the divine love available to each of us when her daughter Veda was born almost 20 years ago. Thanks, Veda:) Since then she has been on the path, seeking to understand how to live in alignment with the knowledge of this loving awareness. These sessions are a culmination of the wisdom she has gained walking the path with guidance from her own teachers Manorama, Christina Sell, Sohi, Gabrielle Bernstein, Ram Dass, Tara Brach and Jack Kornfield.
Anna Mitra is an Oregon-native yoga teacher, a dedicated student, and a great lover and believer in movement as a form of medicine. Her yoga journey began in 2010, in a time when she struggled daily to manage her mental health. Slowly the mindful practices of yoga began to replace her unhealthy coping mechanisms and through these practices, she has developed a stronger relationship with her own healing process. It is through this lens that she has come to terms with the many aspects of her own inner darkness, and the light she has discovered within it. Anna believes in the wholeness, the deep intuitive wisdom that we all have, and strives to help students remember this within themselves. She empowers her students to be curious, to move in embodied ways that they might not otherwise, to remain present with all that arises, and supports them in discovering their own unique way of being. She encourages her students to take charge of their practice, to listen deeply to the innate wisdom of their bodies, and to make intentional, compassionate choices about how they interact with themselves and in the world.
