Jessica Brustad

Yoga Instructor

Jessica has a unique yoga practice which nowadays involves more laughter and free play then traditional asana.  She has been practicing yoga since 2004 and teaching since 2011.  While teaching Vinyasa and Hatha classes in Southern California she gained the nickname, The Funny Yogi!  Her high energy, laugh out loud, (and often), personality brought a different feeling to her classes. Jessica then went on to obtain her 500 Hr Professional RYT through YogaWorks; but that didn't take the silliness out of her! 

While living in Los Angeles, Jessica had also been studying and performing Stand Up and Improv Comedy. After relocating to Seattle in 2015 she finally found her passions collide when she was introduced to Hasya Yoga or Laughter Yoga.  Laughter yoga is a unique practice which combines unconditional laughter with yogic breathing (pranayama). She obtained her Laughter Yoga Leader Certification from the Laughter Yoga International University that year. Jessica now leads weekly Laughter Clubs in the Seattle area and is committed to helping others tap into their own inner joy and child-like playfulness which we all posses. She loves hugs, high five's, and smiles and that's what you can expect from a class with Jessica!

Kathy Gorohoff

Yoga Instructor

Kathy has been practicing yoga since 2003 after the birth of her first daughter. She found yoga as a wonderful way to move her body slowly and gently after pregnancy. While continuing to practice, she discovered that yoga was much more than a way to get in shape. Once her second daughter was born, yoga was a way for her to relax, connect with Self and find center. Yoga continues to help her stay grounded and is a wonderful compliment to her love of running and hiking.

In 2015 – 2016, Kathy and her family spent 9 months traveling around the country in a truck camper, while she was not able to pop into a yoga class in every town she visited, she did get to visit a good handful of studios to keep her practice up and developed her  own yoga routine that she could do in the confines of her camper. When returning home from the trip, she knew that the next journey was to follow her love of yoga and dive into yoga teacher training. She received her 200 hour RYT through Synergy Yoga School with a focus on Vinyasa flow yoga, yoga philosophy and Ayurveda, the sister science to yoga. This training has prepared her to follow her path to teaching gentle and energetic Vinyasa classes around the Seattle area.
