Galen Fairbanks

Galen was first introduced to yoga as a supplement to her ballet training over a decade ago. She loved the familiarity of the dance-like movement and caught the yoga bug right away, but found herself busy living abroad, attending college, and working in New York City. Looking for a new way of life, Galen moved to Portland, listened to her intuition, and signed up for YoYoYogi’s teacher training course under the direction of Alex and Terri Cole where daily yoga practice and study quickly left her feeling more balanced secure and happy. Since then, she has also completed Elevate Yoga Trainings, an advanced teacher training with Jill Knouse. Galen hopes to share her knowledge and passion for movement with each of her students through her creative Vinyasa flow classes.
