Piper’s life took an instantaneous shift when she discovered yoga – after years of depression and pain – with zero doubts, she committed to not only a life-long practice, but also a new career. Yoga was her catalyst to discover a joy untouched by circumstance and was called to use the blueprint of yoga to serve others. She set out to combine yoga, her craze of travel and her authentic concern for the matters of the human heart.
Over 15 years later, thousands of hours teaching in both the Pacific Northwest and around the world, having provided consultation for numerous studios and certified hundreds of teachers – she is the founder and academic director of Global Soul Yoga. Her classes and training programs are dynamic, challenging and uplifting and she encourages us to live more globally and soulfully.
Piper has experience with and a passion for multiple lineages of yoga and fuses them together into her teaching and personal practice. At first a daily yoga and mediation routine was a total discipline and hard to maintain, but over the years it has grown into one of her life’s devotions. She exemplifies a modern woman who is a wife, raising three radical daughters, running multiple businesses – and still prioritizes the spiritual discipline of a daily yoga and meditation practice. She knows first hand how it aids to heal from trauma, transform and expand into a faith-based life full of inexhaustible joy with God at the center. She has a deep desire to create a community of people who support each other to do the same.
Piper has travelled to over 100 countries around the world – and won’t stop. Traveling grounds her in the present moment and uplifts her to exist in total awe of the miracle and diversity of life. She insists that everyone needs to travel to some wild place they never thought they would – to take a leap and say YES to an experience unlike anything else. Global exploration paired with yoga practice and education with a conscious community light her up and she invites everyone to become a GLOBAL SOUL.
“This was a great teacher training program. We covered a lot of interesting material and learned so much! Overall it was a wonderful experience. I would recommend this training to others. Very grateful to be able to work with Piper.”
“Piper has put together an incredibly diverse curriculum. I feel prepared to teach several styles of yoga and I gained solid knowledge in so many areas such as yoga history, Hindu/Buddhist philosophy, anatomy, the breath and more. She added to the in-class time with meaningful homework and a book selection that I know I will refer back to again and again. This school is appropriately called Global Soul as she puts her heart and soul into each student and creates not only a wonderful curriculum, but a wonderful experience. I strongly recommend her 200hr training course to anyone considering becoming a yoga teacher or looking to enhance their yoga knowledge.”
“Global Soul an amazing, one-of-a-kind experience!! I would recommend it to anyone interested in yoga on any level!!”
