Hello! My name is Charity Grace, and I am a trauma informed yoga teacher and a student of Ayurvedic gut and hormonal health. Ever since I was a child, I have been drawn to self healing and curious about the holistic lifestyle. After suffering decades of chronic migraines, fatigue, and depression, as well as attending hundreds of doctors appointments with no relief, I started to heal myself with the holistic tools I had learned when I was young. After curing most of my physical and mental health issues, I dove into studying ways to help others. Looking forward, I am now a certified and registered yoga teacher, specializing in yin yoga, trauma management, as well as sound healing and Ayurvedic gut health. I am excited to spend the rest of my career helping people find their connection to nature and to their true self, without the heavy reliance on western practices. I currently teach yoga and hold sound baths at local studios all around Boise, Idaho, and eventually, I plan on opening a retreat center in Central America where those struggling with their health can come and heal and find their true source of earths life force.
I began my yoga practice through breath work. During times of intense stress I’d close my eyes and deepen my breath, ultimately finding peace and stillness. Unbeknownst to me at the time, I was meditating. Since then I’ve grown to love various types of yoga, ranging from Ashtanga to Yin to Hot Power yoga. I obtained my RYT 200 Hot Yoga certification at Eagle Yoga House in 2018. After that I began immersing myself in more training, certifying in Yin, Hot Vinyasa, Rocket Yoga, and am currently pursuing my 500RYT through Carmen Aguilar (cYoga). My goal as an instructor is to help students achieve the healthiest, happiest, and strongest version of themselves.
I’m Dani Forbess and I work as a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and a Yoga Instructor. My goal is to create the possibility for people to see their path to healing and to help them achieve it. I worked for 20 years as a pastor in the Presbyterian church where I launched an artistic healing community, helped to open a community garden, coached cheerleading, and worked with the non profit sector to open a homeless shelter. I now live in Eagle with my husband and three teenagers. You can find us skiing, mountain biking, or at the gym.
Idaho born and raised, I started practicing yoga in the Treasure Valley at the age of 10. I enjoy all things outdoors and sharing times with the people I love in the beautiful environment we call home. I have practiced yoga all over North America and look forward to teaching, learning , and sharing experiences with this vibrant yoga community.

Sally is an RYT 500, certified in Vinyasa through Sage Yoga & Wellness & trained in Adaptive Yoga with Ken Lewis & Zen Adaptive. When she's not practicing asanas, Sally can be found in the back yard weeding, travelling with her husband, or outdoor adventuring with one of her four adult children. Sally's favorite pastime though is lying in the sun with a good book, unless of course there is a bit of wildlife or a toddler to amuse her.
