Why Elk Rock?
When looking out onto the river from downtown Milwaukie you will notice an island off to the left, this is Elk Rock Island. The island represents part of an ancient volcano that erupted about 40 million years ago. The large, jagged rocks found throughout the island were formed by lava flows, and may be the oldest exposed rock in the Portland area. The island contains seven distinct habitats, including wetlands, forests, and grasslands. Elk Rock plays a very important role in Native American history and culture. What an incredible piece of history hiding in plain site. I wanted to choose a name that was recognizable, approachable to all ages and genders and let people know we are local and here to stay.
Help us celebrate Elk Rock Wellness 3 Year Anniversary and Grand Opening for the new yoga studio on May 5th, 5PM – 9PM. We will be unveiling our beautiful new mural with local artists Nathan Seay and Ryan DaCosta during the Milwaukie First Friday event. The evening will include live DJ, treats, and a spectacular yoga raffle.
About the Owner
As a native of the Pacific Northwest I feel blessed to have grown up near such beautiful surroundings and excellent educational opportunities. I can identify with chopping wood, camping, riding in the back of pickup trucks, playing in the dirt, not wearing makeup, and keeping it simple. Milwaukie reminds me of the small towns in Oregon I grew up in and can identify with. I am honored to be part of this community, Elk Rock Yoga is dedicated to bringing the highest level of yoga instruction and ensure that it is accessible to all levels. I'm also very excited that Elk Rock Wellness is participating in our 4th season of Milwaukie Farmers Market and Milwaukie First Friday! We'll see you at the market!
