Fawn Williams
Yoga Therapist Working in Portland, Oregon



Fawn is a sought after Yoga Therapist and Yoga Educator. She works within a feminist, inclusive, collaborative, weight neutral lens. As a lifelong practitioner, Fawn most enjoys creating community through joyful movement.



My specific training draws from the knowledge bases of physical therapy, interpersonal neurobiology, perinatal health, and trauma sensitive care.

I use a therapeutic, person-centered behavioral health model incorporating theory and practices of yoga and yoga's sister science, Ayurveda.


I train Yoga Teachers and Public School Teachers to incorporate yoga into their work.

I consult and collaborate with corporate entities and non-profits on-site. I give experiential presentations at large conferences and educational institutions.

Since 2008 I have offered therapeutic yoga privately and in small groups.

I have worked with the incarcerated population, homeless youth, adults and adolescents in recovery, and pregnant women. I work with medical and mental health providers on issues such as MS, Parkinson’s Disease, depression, anxiety, Eating Disorder Recovery, and addiction.

I am an International Association of Yoga Therapy (C-IAYT) Certified Yoga Therapist, Yoga Alliance Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher (E-YRT 500), and Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider (YACEP). I was initiated into a branch of Karma yoga as a kid, and learned my first meditation practice in kindergarten.


Client Reviews

Fawn has an intelligence, thoughtfulness, humility, and kindness that she brings to each class. She creates a safe and fun space where you can learn about yourself through exploration and practice without judgement or expectations. Her instruction not only informs the physical practice, but integrates the mind and body both on and off the mat. Her classes are for the curious and serious alike, or anyone who wants to work on positive change!

Fawn safely guided me through my whole pregnancy, encouraging me to tune into my body and maintain flexibility and strength. Postpartum, she showed my how to repair and strengthen my core. Fawn’s creative classes and experienced guidance have inspired me to get on my mat every day.

Fawn is a true yogi and healer. Despite my 20 years of yoga practice, I moved muscles that I had never found before! This was truly a healing and enlightening yoga experience in a beautiful setting. I highly recommend Fawn and our yoga retreat!

Fawn, Thanks for your wonderful teaching. I am just a beginner in my body, and in a process of recovery from major surgery and six months of chemo. Soon maybe I’ll be able to graduate to gentle yoga. Thanks for your great work.
