Anna Caitlin


Hello, My name is Anna. I live in one of the most beautiful spots in the world, Oregon, and love using the built-in overcast lighting and gorgeous green landscape as my photography studio. Most days you can find me with either my camera, a cup of tea or a yoga mat in my hand, and quite often with all three at once.

Matt Nelson

Yoga Teacher

I began practicing Chi Gung in 1995 but discovered my love for Yoga when I stepped into my first class in 2003. I believe in providing joyful, nurturing, structurally sound classes that nourish the soul, support inner-growth and present a physical challenge appropriately suited for each practitioner. My classes encourage a deep connection to the breath as I teach students to move with proper alignment, grace, flexibility, strength, intuition and mindfulness.

Portland's Culinary Workshop


We could wax poetic on how we LOVE food, LOVE to teach and are a hoot to hang with, but the nitty gritty of it all is that we are two smart, hilarious women who talked over a breakfast one morning and knew what we had to do. We had to follow our dream of teaching our way…for you. We provide cooking classes for the masses! No matter what your skill set is, we deliver hands on classes for the food enthusiast in a relaxed environment with a bit of sass for good measure!

Tyler Stenson

Singer Songwriter

Tyler is an arresting singer/songwriter of acoustic ‘elegant folk’ music that hints at comparison to songwriter greats such as James Taylor, Cat Stevens and Ryan Adams. While he has been locally recognized as the two-time ‘Songwriter of the Year’ by the Portland Songwriters Association (2007 and 2008) and ‘Best Male Artist’ at the 2011 Portland Music Awards, on the national stage, Stenson has received even more impressive praise from the top tier of the music industry.

Nursery Owner

Raised-up in Boise, Idaho, Mégan has an abiding passion for the Western frontier and all things nature. She has the heart of a cowgirl and the soul of a gardener. And although she loves living in Portland and running her small, mom-and-pop business here, she would almost always rather be riding horses on the range… especially painted ponies.
