Instructor Clark, Graeme

Biography

An active social dancer since 1998 while studying at the University of Oregon, Graeme was involved in all types of ballroom dancing, and held a position in the universities dance club. His most intense area of focus was Argentine tango and he has taken opportunities to learn more advanced concepts and movements, attending festivals, taking private lessons and even advanced classes in Argentina.

Graeme has been teaching dance since 2003. He actually began teaching tango in Queretaro, Mexico (central Mexico). Starting from zero, Graeme was able to create a community of tango dancers in Queretaro and organized dance opportunities, which have continued to this day.

Graeme has been teaching ballroom dance at RCC since 2008. He emphasizes a strong foundation based on understanding the principles of lead and follow, which allows students to understand the movements they are doing rather than just "do" the move.

FEINBERG, REANNA RFeinberg@roguecc.edu    Bio

Part-time Faculty

Biography

Reanna has been practicing yoga since 1999 and began teaching in 2005. She has studied extensively with Sarahjoy Marsh in Portland, Oregon where she received her teacher training certification as an Anusara® Inspired Instructor. She has also practiced and studied with many wonderful and inspiring teachers such as: Max Strom (Author of “A Life Worth Breathing”), Katerina Wen (The Yogi Way), Djuna Mascall (Prajna Yoga) and Iris Lambert (Irie Yoga). She integrates the multitude of styles, flow, principles and disciplines of yoga, breath work, somatics and play she has explored (and continues to explore) into her unique flavor of grounded, creative play filtered through the ancient practice of yoga.

Reanna also has a degree from the University of Puget Sound, and professional background, in creative writing, and uses her yoga instruction as a modern day oral narrative in action. Weaving potent themes of nature, beauty, strength, surrender, acceptance, etc. into the tangible realm of experience in each class.

Much of Reanna's inspiration and information is born from observations and experiences in nature as well as through a personal study of healing in her own body. She has worked with challenges of rheumatoid arthritis as well as the physical and mental trauma of cancer in her teenage years. She chose not to follow the path of standard prescription medicines and has not suffered the discomforts of rheumatoid arthritis for eleven years now. With blood work to back it up, she no longer exhibits evidence of this “incurable” disease. She attributes a majority of the healing, awareness and her personal path and perspective to the physical, mental, philosophical and energetic studies within the practice of yoga.
