About Kenny Graham

Drawing on his 23 years of yoga study and experience, Kenny Graham teaches yoga in a way that is accessible, intelligent and inspiring. His classes are taught as “form and flow” which blends breath work, meditation, movement and music. He honors the fact that each body is unique, and that alignment is a personal journey. His teaching helps to free limiting mental patterns, lighten the heart and increase body awareness.  

Kenny teaches with a focus on equanimity of movement to counter modern-day imbalances, which helps restore the body to its natural fluidity and balance. Through the functional applications of posture, breath and meditation, he helps students to discover their own unique alignment in the world.

He has a BA in Psychology and has always been keenly interested in cultivating a deeper awareness of the mind-body connection. He is a strong proponent of meditation and has witnessed first-hand its power to transform one’s own life. Meditation was his first introduction to yoga and later he supplemented this with physical practice to support his lifestyle.

Kenny continues to study and learn from yoga teachers in many traditions and practitioners of various modalities including chiropractic, bodywork, anatomy, philosophy, Pilates, physical fitness, martial arts, acupuncture, nutrition and medicine. Registered with Yoga Alliance at the highest level (E- RYT®500) he teaches in Santa Cruz, CA and leads teacher trainings, workshops, retreats, and festivals in the Bay Area and worldwide.

About Hannah Muse

Hannah Muse is known for her profound devotion to WAKING UP to the beauty of this life, her nurturing teachings that weave ancient wisdom + ritual into dynamic playful movement, that sweet Bhakta voice that stirs deep in your soul whenever mantras meet her lips, and the infectious bliss that she radiates wherever she roams.

Ever since yoga found her, Hannah’s heart has been bursting open and spilling over with love. She feels so blessed to live the life of a yogini and is honored to share it with you. Her classes are more than just a series of physical poses: although you may sweat, her teachings encompass pranayama, meditation, mudra, philosophy and her asana instruction combines therapeutic physical alignment with dynamic pranic flows that will nourish, strengthen and align both your physical body and your subtle energy body. Myth, mantra & ritual accompany her alignment-based classes where she integrates the Yin & Yang, Divine Feminine & Divine Masculine, Dynamic Vinyasa, Mindfulness-based Hatha + Deep Restorative aspects into the practice – yoga accessible to ALL beings.

Hannah is a devotee of this Great Mother Earth and has led many environmental efforts on her behalf. She is eternally grateful to the teachers who have blessed her with wisdom along this path, including Baba Hari Dass whose teachings have inspired her daily sadhana for several years, Kamalesh Hooven, Sianna Sherman, Jane Austin, and many others. Most of all, her practice is inspired by the beauty of every breath, the grace of embodiment, and the unconditional love of her family.

With her home base grounded in the mystical setting of redwoods+ocean in Santa Cruz, California, her gypsy soul travels the world sharing the sacred gifts of yoga that saved her life and awaken her heart each day. She is the co-creator and teacher of the ROOTS of YOGA 200 and 500-hour teacher training alongside Kenny Graham. She also directs and leads the faculty of Mount Madonna Center’s Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training. She leads retreats in Mexico, India, Guatemala, Bali and beyond, and has taught at global gatherings and festivals including Bhakti Fest, Shakti Fresh, Electric Forest, Symbiosis, Red Rocks and more.

Hannah does not believe that yoga “fixes” us or fills up something missing; instead she knows with all of her heart that we are already whole divine beings just needing a little (or BIG) reminder – and yoga is the best reminder she has ever found.
