Influenced by injuries and obsession with anatomy, Tate Englund specializes in functional, technique-based vinyasa. Studying years with Jason Crandell, inspired by the teachings of Dr. Andreo Spina, a sports specialist, and the mindfulness meditation teachings of Cindy Lee and others, Tate continues to refine his teaching and personal practice, working to improve quality of life by focusing on the balance between strength & flexibility.
Tate believes that yoga is a practice of self inquiry, less about the pretty shapes, and more about what the postures are trying to do. If we can understand the actions & the functionality, it allows the practice to be more about the impact it has on our daily life.
Based in Seattle, Tate has thousands of hours teaching public classes, leading teacher trainings, yoga immersions, workshops and retreats around the world.
