Jen Goodacre, RYT200
I first started exploring yoga at 17 years old when my sister gifted me a yoga mat for my birthday. The practice of yoga has been a source of grounding and endless introspection. My love lies in the traditions and philosophies of yoga, viewing it more as a way of life. I have such gratitude for this practice and hope to share it with you.
I moved from Michigan almost a year ago and can’t wait to build my yoga community here in Spokane.
"I appreciate the reminder of how much benefit we can have with slow movement, and the value of moving lowly and measured. Also, I appreciate the reminder tha yoga can be practiced any wher, anytime. Props and opportunities are all around if we take the time to look!"

Mindi Sheer, CLMA, RSMT
Mindi Sheer is a somatic movement educator, ecologist, and former competitive latin dancer who recently settled in Spokane. Her diverse perspective of movement includes a deep curiosity and appreciation for Authentic Movement, musicality and self-expression. Her artistic passion is to help forge a bridge between art and science and create pathways of healing for the lived body through the art of dance.
As an ecologist, she studies aquatic ecosystems and understands complex systems, including body, mind, psyche and our relationship with nature. Mindi has a degree in Biology and a Masters in Geosciences and is a registered Somatic Movement Educator and Therapist (RSME/T) through the International Somatic Movement Education and Therapy Association (ISMETA). She began teaching in 2012 and somatic movement coaching in 2018.
Science culture oriented Mindi towards the much-needed expressivity and physical discipline of dance where she discovered her passion for the theatricality and sensuality of Latin music, dance and performance. Her dance background includes Afro-Cuban forms, jazz, modern, salsa, flamenco, swing and an extensive focus in technical and social Latin and ballroom dances. She is a 3-time National USA DanceSport Champion in International Latin Ballroom. The kinesthetic and healing aspects of partnerships led to her study of somatics and movement analysis. Mindi has a certification in Laban/Bartenieff Movement Analysis (CLMA) (2018) from Integrated Movement Studies (University of Utah) which included study at the Laban Institute of Movement Studies in Brooklyn. She continues to train in embodied coaching practices, Body-Mind Centering, and the Kestenberg Movement Profile and uses them in her personal movement practice and work with clients.
Mindi will be offering a variety of classes at the Clutch, beginning with Latin Fusion, and hopes to develop a small community Movement Lab for thoughtful exploration of somatic approaches and community-derived movement. She is available for somatic movement sessions, private dance lessons, couples communication through movement, and wedding dance lessons.

Niki Tschirgi, RYT200 (in progress) Trauma Informed Yoga
Welcome to Anchored Heart Kids Yoga, LLC! I am delighted you are here. I am a stay-at-home mom in Spokane, Washington. My husband Matt and I have adopted six kids from foster care. I am trained as a kid’s yoga instructor by The Little Yoga House out of Austin, Texas. After training, I taught at a local kids yoga studio, working with babies, toddlers, preschoolers, and elementary aged children. My most recent training was in trauma-sensitive yoga by GreenTree Yoga out of Salt Lake City, Utah, where I am in process of completing their certification course. After this training I knew what I was supposed to do: bring trauma-sensitive yoga to kids. My new mission was, “have mats, will travel.” Prior to the pandemic, I brought yoga into the schools, breaking down the barriers of transportation and location. I worked directly in the classrooms and taught after school programs. From my work in the schools I saw firsthand yoga can be a powerful tool in a child’s tool box to help regulate emotion, grow in body awareness, and build community. What children learn in yoga, they carry with them for the rest of their lives. Yoga is healing. Yoga is connection. Yoga is fun.
