BIZNOTES: New businesses NW Kids Life Coaching and Inside Out

Two new-business notes:

NORTHWEST KIDS LIFE COACHING: After seven years teaching third grade at Fairmount Park Elementary, wrapping up a 20-year career in the classroom, Althea Chow has launched a new business, Northwest Kids Life Coaching. Her service is for kids 7-12, and her website explains the difference between “life coaching” for kids and counseling or tutoring them. She offers one-on-one sessions in person or via Zoom, with a free 15-minute consultation for starters – book via her website or email

INSIDE OUT: Amy Sennett-Starner says she has “made the very exciting decision to open my own yoga and Pilates studio here in West Seattle” – Inside Out, a “community-based studio that focuses on building mindful strengthening and stretching through yoga, Pilates and dance methods – including alignment, strength, breathwork and self-awareness.” She adds, “I have secured an amazing location at 3270 California Ave SW, Upper unit (formerly Counterforce Tae Kwan Do), above Alair Gift Shop and Dylan Clothing Co., with tons of space and light and room to move and grow and most importantly, look inside. I am in the early stages of a build ut and hopefully will be able to open doors this September.” She’s teaching yoga elsewhere in the meantime – info’s on her website.

    So excited for inside out!  Amy is an amazing instructor after taking countless classes from her pre Covid. So happy to see she is opening her own studio. Yay!

      Ditto! So excited to see Amy open her own studio. She has such a unique ability to describe asanas and how to form and flow from pose to pose—I think this comes from decades as a dancer. Plus just being such a wonderful light in this world. Her classes are balm for the body mind and spirit. We are such a lucky community to have her! ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜🖤🤍🤎

  • Gentle Yoga Please? June 5, 2022 (9:22 pm)

    From the description, sounds like the yoga classes are rather active and good for those who are more fit. I was really hoping to see something geared towards those of us with aging bodies who need a gentle yoga class. There’s a lot of us looking for a slow, mindful, stretching workout that also helps with balance.

      Check out BendnMove on California Ave, they offer what you’re seeking.

      Definitely as Keith says… Check out BendnMove. Tamara is amazing. Also, many classes at Limber yoga are wonderful with this focus. Love to see you on a mat anytime. My clients are always encouraged to make their own choices that work for their body. Big love. Amy
