The Craft Yoga Collective instructor bios

Sarah Schwager

Sarah completed The Craft of Teaching Yoga 200-hour training in 2018, where she was inspired to create thoughtful, theme-based vinyasa flow classes. She strives to cultivate mindfulness and growth in her students, and she hopes to share the magic of moving mindfully with breath!  Sarah is also a high school English teacher and believes learning never stops. She loves that both literature and yoga encourage self-reflection that can teach us about ourselves and how to live meaningful lives!


Bailey Eaton

Bailey teaches a flowing and rhythmic vinyasa practice inspired by finding connection, enlivening and reveling in experience, and expanding beyond known boundaries. Bailey's classes incorporate embodied yoga philosophies, intelligent sequencing, and Spirit Flow from her 200 Hour RYT Certification through The Craft of Teaching Yoga. Additionally, 12 years of Vinyasa and Hatha yoga practice form the basis of Bailey's experience; her teaching style incorporates breath-by-breath movement, meditation and invigorating asana. Bailey hopes that students find peace, joy and introspection through her classes and that the magic of yoga can touch each of her students. Bailey teaches at 6 PM on the first Sunday of each month at Kula Movement with the Craft Yoga Collective.


Arlene Crews

Arlene teaches a soulful vinyasa flow that leaves her students feeling strong in their bodies and energized in their souls. She enjoys teaching across the energy spectrum from the vigorous solar class to the restorative lunar class. She draws the most joy from teaching beginners’ classes and watching her students incorporate the benefits of yoga into their physical and spiritual lives. Arlene has practiced yoga since 2010, practicing all around the world from Virginia to California to India and Poland. Her broad experience in practicing yoga has enabled her to hone her taste in style, environment, teaching cues, and music. Her first teacher was Diane Kassir (RYT, Yoga Medicine Therapeutic Specialist) where she learned a strong foundation in alignment and anatomical cues. She recently completed her 200 hour YTT with the Craft of Teaching Yoga with Adrienne and Eric Rabena of Bohemian Studios in Seattle. Arlene fully incorporates their style of intelligent sequencing and authentic theming to deliver a soulful and enlivening yoga class. Arlene taught her first yoga class on the flight deck of a United States Navy Destroyer while working as a Naval Officer. Arlene enjoys the thrill and challenge of sharing the physical and spiritual practice of yoga in an otherwise strict and disciplined environment. She continues to teach regular yoga classes to her fellow sailors but also seeks to grow her network in the broader Seattle community.


Kate Thaman

Kate Thaman has been practicing yoga since 2002 & regularly since 2007 all over Seattle.  Kate graduated from the Craft of Teaching Yoga 200 hour in April of 2018.  Kate finds inspiration in her yoga flows & themes from nature, books, music & everyday life.  Kate’s goal is for each student to leave class felling better than when they entered (physically and or mentally). Kate is a registered nurse & does her best to embrace all bodies & abilities. Kate teaches the first Sunday each month at Couth Buzzard.  (She will be taking the first Sunday in August off to recover from having a baby).  “Yoga does not change the way we see things, it transforms the person who sees” BKS Iyengar @kateintheemeraldcity
