We are BendnMove

About Tamara Gillest, MS, C-IAYT, E-RYT500

Dedicated to helping others find health and wellbeing …

Offering yoga therapy is my dream job. I love helping people experience the wholeness that can be felt through yoga and mindfulness practices. Adding integral sound therapy to my offerings is a natural fit and I look forward to helping people experience relaxation and profound healing with this experience.

Personal injuries and a stressful career lead me to the need for change. That transformation came through yoga therapy. Soon after my healing began, I saw the opportunity to use everything I had learned to help others suffering from these modern-day afflictions. BendnMove was created to assist people with living a fuller life grounded in mental and physical health and happiness.

I am certified through the International Association of Yoga Therapists, International Buteyko Clinic, and Yoga Alliance. I am also a certified integral sound therapist through the Sound Healing Academy.

A yoga therapy experience…

Tamara has been my yoga teacher and therapist for quite a few years. She has assisted me through grief, life changes and my spirituality. The way Tamara approaches my body when I am experiencing pain from Osteo arthritis is remarkable. I always leave the studio feeling good in my mind and body; relaxed, less discomfort, and with a series of movements to assist me while at home. And Tamara is always reachable, easy to be with, comforting.

About Milo Minnis, M.Ed, C-IAYT, E-RYT500, Advanced Certified Restorative Teacher, Certified Aromatherapist

I was born to teach…

My love for yoga practice for over 25 years and my 30-year background as an educator inform me to be a guide not a sage. I strive to teach how through movement a metamorphosis takes place in the body and the mind. My passion is teaching yoga that helps aging students develop a safe and sustainable practice. The  classes I teach are small which allows me to get to know you, guide and help you as needed.

 As an Internationally Certified Aromatherapist I offer consultations on how to use pure essential oils to support your body and help you stay well. I create blends tailored to your needs.

About Betsy Snyder, Guild Certified Feldenkrais® Practitioner

As time marches on, I find that maintaining strength, balance, and coordination takes more work than it used to (Can anyone relate?)

I’ve been in practice since I completed my training in 2010, and I have a background in yoga and various healing arts that dates back 20+ years. My focus in my current practice is teaching Awareness Through Movement, (or ATM for short). I was in my thirties when I did my Feldenkrais training, and I was amazed what this practice that seemed so gentle and subtle at the time did to grow my yoga practice. I’ll never forget the day I spontaneously found myself sitting in a full lotus position after a hip joint lesson. The small movements that freed up my hip joints and spine made the impossible possible, and without pain or strain, without even stretching! I’m older now and my priorities aren’t so much about achieving advanced yoga poses, but I am a mover and I enjoy an active lifestyle.
