Yoga found Griet in 2008 after an injury and although she’d showed interest in yoga for a long time, necessity drew her to the mat. Her practice has taken her on a path of self-discovery, appreciation of the world around her, and has found a way into her daily life.

In the Fall of 2018, Caroline received her RYT 200 from a local studio here in Boise, ID. Caroline likes to have fun in her classes and remind her students not to take themselves too seriously.

Emily Garringer

Yoga Manager

My yoga journey began 15 years ago, in a hot studio in Boise Idaho. Having grown up learning dance, I immediately fell in love with the idea of linking breath with movement. Since then, I have expanded my personal practice to include Hot Yoga, Yin, Vinyassa, Hatha, and Yoga Nidra.

Ashley Paige

Yoga Teacher, RYT-200

Ashley is originally from Salt Lake City, Utah and moved to Boise in 2016. She played collegiate soccer at Idaho State University and has always loved Idaho’s beautiful outdoors. It was during her soccer days when she was first introduced to yoga. Since that time, she has continued to practice many styles of yoga to complement her active and adventurous lifestyle.

Laila Hardman has been practicing yoga for over 20 years and has found teaching yoga has been a natural evolvement for the next stage in her life.

Studio Move Testimonials

Elisabeth W

My shy and reserved daughter loved her weekly tap and ballet classes with Miss Tawnya. The classes were the perfect mix of creativity and structure! My daughter had fun with her friends, but she gained specific skills and coordination. She even felt comfortable to take the risk to perform in several recitals!

After seeing my daughter enjoy these classes, my 5-year old son asked to dance! He participated in a boy’s hip-hop class for two years, and he LOVED it!! Miss Tawnya taught those energetic boys some incredible moves! She maintained high expectations for them, but she found the perfect balance of discipline and joy! She is an excellent teacher who knows how to differentiate instruction based on the age and interest level of her students.

My family has benefited so much from her programs!
