Held in Vital Origins’ sun-bathed front room, yoga with McKinzie is rooted in compassion and self-acceptance. There’s something for you here, both live and streaming virtually:
- Private Yoga
- Small group classes
- Monthly workshops
Whether the focus is targeting the nervous system, getting stronger and more flexible, refining alignment, learning meditation, integrating breath work or diving into the wisdom of yoga and Ayurveda, McKinzie offers a safe space for students of all levels to learn and practice. Her teaching style is rooted in gentle movement, meditation (quiet sitting/laying),
and pranayama (breath work). She uses creative sequencing and encourages moving mindfully. Intensity and skill level will always be described for vinyasa, yin, and other yoga asana styles. Students should feel empowered to modify to their comfort level.
Curious students, feel free to send an email to inquire about a private session! Working one-on-one is the traditional form of teaching yoga.

As a teacher, McKinzie’s intentions are simple: to support, motivate, and empower students. This translates into authenticity and leading by example. She is committed to the mission of caring for others and herself. The dedication to personal practice has helped to release McKinzie from the self-inflicted pressures and insecurities of her youth. As an eating disorder survivor in recovery, she is acutely focused on spreading practices that encourage self-acceptance. The principles of ahimsa (non-harm) and santosha (contentment) have influenced her greatly.
Sharing is the key to integration of knowledge and wisdom. McKinzie recognizes the lineage, history, and culture surrounding yoga in its many manifestations. She completed her 200-hour training with Yoga East + West in 2020, and is an RYT-200 with Yoga Alliance. Teachers she thanks for their guidance in her studies include: Jo Tastula, Christine Anderson, Vijeth Kumar, Hilaire Lockwood, Marissa Grott, Johnna Smith, Jenny Plaus-Hertz, Chelsey Korus, Elena Brower, Amy Ippoliti, Ram Dass, Judith Hanson Lasater, Donna Farhi, Nicholai Bachman, Tias Little, Geshe Michael Roach, Sage Rountree, Thich Nhat Hanh, Michelle Cassandra Johnson, Brene Brown, and many more.
