I took my first Hatha & Kundalini classes in 1994 at the University of Oregon. I experienced life-changing transformation when I attended a yoga retreat in Costa Rica to celebrate my 30th birthday. I graduated from Yoga Refuge Conservatory in March 2018 with my 200-hour teacher training. Please see the schedule below to come to a yoga class!
Weekly Yoga Offerings
Free & Low Cost Yoga
I love to go to yoga classes! Here is a list of my favorite studios and the best deals I've found for free and low cost yoga. You might see me in class too!
Portland Community College offers Yoga classes for credit and non-credit. You sign up for the whole term, the non-credit class is about $125 for 10-weeks, so that's just about $12.50 per class. My favorite was Saturdays 10am at SE Campus, but now all of the classes are on Zoom, so let me know if you want to talk about my favorite classes. Since I teach there I get to take them for free and so I will likely see you in class.
Yoga Union on SE 50th and Division has some Free Yoga for Beginner's class and a few $5 drop in class, including Chair Yoga.
Unfold on SE 37th and Division has $5 community classes including Chair Yoga.
Woodstock Wellness on SE 47th and Woodstock offers a $5 community class.
People's Food Coop on SE 21st between Powell & Division offers Free yoga to co-op members in their Community Room. I especially love the Kaleidoscope on Wednesdays at 10am! That one is free for all, no membership is required.
Yoga Refuge is near and dear to me since it's the studio that I completed my 200-hour teacher training at.
Yoga Teaching Journey
So Fine Studios
A collective of online yoga and fitness teachers
My name is Micki Josi. I'm a Yoga & Math Teacher. So Fine is the name of my home studio in the Lents neighborhood of SE Portland, Oregon. This is where I teach my online yoga and math classes via Zoom.
I'm currently working to collaborate with other teachers to form: So Fine Studios is a collective of online teachers providing a weekly schedule of body positive and accessible online yoga and fitness classes for a monthly subscription.
Reasoning: Many of us are individually offering online classes via Zoom. Since these classes are not limited by space and location, it's creating a unique opportunity for teachers to collaborate and provide a shared weekly schedule. Students will be able to access these classes for 1 monthly subscription. Teacher will commit to providing 2 classes on the schedule per week. The profits will be split evenly among active collective members. The subscriber list is shared between all of the teachers.
This project is still in the idea phase and I am looking for teachers who are interested in collaborating to form a weekly schedule of group classes in order to reach more students and continue to build our own businesses. Please email me if you are interested in getting involved: email@example.com
I discovered my love for math in the 8th grade when I began tutoring my friend on the bus to school. I told her then I wanted to become a math teacher. In 2002, I joined the New York City Teaching Fellow program and began teaching Middle School Math in Brooklyn, NY. I earned a Master's in Math Education from St. John's University. I taught public school grades 5-9 for 9 years in New York City. I currently teach math at Portland Community College and Clackamas Community College.
I believe that all people can learn math! In my long year career as a math instructor, I've gathered a large set of resources and ideas. I love to use a variety of approaches including games, stories, and hands-on activities, such as Origami, to engage students of all ages. For my community college course I've recorded my lessons for my students. You can see samples of my teaching on my YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/Mickijosi or find complete sets of links below in Micki's Math Resources.
I provide tutoring for students of all ages from my home studio via Zoom. My rate is $50 for 50 minutes. To book an appointment email me with the details of the grade level and days and times you are interested in: firstname.lastname@example.org
