Yoga Instructors


Jennifer-HansonJennifer Hanson teaches yoga at the Multnomah Athletic Club (MAC) and privately. She taught yoga on Cycle Oregon from 2009-2011 before joining the Peace Corps in Indonesia (East Java). Before moving to the other side of the world, she taught a variety of yoga students, ranging from seniors, to athletes at Adidas, the MAC and the Portland Rock Gym. She’s thrilled to be back with Cycle Oregon. Jennifer completed her 200-hour vinyasa certification at Yoga Sutra in Manhattan in Feb. 2008 before moving to Portland. She continued her education later that year in South India at the Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram (KYM) to study yoga therapeutics and Vedic chanting. In 2011 she completed a 100-hour Anusara yoga training in Portland. Jennifer brings forward from her teachers a strong emphasis on individual alignment, and a reverence for the breath in helping to reveal the deeper dimensions of the spirit. In addition to her love of yoga,  she is an avid cyclist with a professional background in journalism and marketing communications. You can reach her at jenlhanson@yahoo.com.

is thrilled to return to teach yoga at Cycle Oregon. She joined the CO team in 2014 and enjoyed guiding riders through yoga poses to stretch, relax and recover after long days of riding. Eliza is a Kripalu-certified yoga teacher and has been practicing yoga for over 10 years. She loves to be active and finds a regular yoga practice improves performance in other sports including cycling, running and soccer. However, it’s truly the mental peace of yoga that keeps her coming back to her mat and inspires her to teach. She currently lives and teaches hatha and vinyasa yoga in Philadelphia. She is looking forward to traveling with fellow yogis next winter to build a school in Malawi as part of her latest training to bring yoga to life. Eliza can be reached at elizamic@gmail.com .
