Instructor – Delainey Knewtson

Delainey found the healing power of yoga a few years ago when she began searching for ways to overcome health obstacles. Intense inflammation made small movements difficult, but with gentle and restorative yoga, she slowly began to calm down her body’s overactive immune system. Through yoga, Delainey found a safe space within herself to connect breath and movement, and remain in the present moment.

Delainey’s passion for yoga inspired her to enroll in the Sellwood Yoga 200-Hour Teacher Training program as a way to deepen her knowledge, and bring the joys of yoga to the community. As a yoga teacher, she is excited to create an open space for students to explore their own minds and bodies; cultivating a sense of compassion and kindness for oneself and others, which can be taken off the mat and into daily life.
