Hello North McIntyre Rec Centre Members,
My yoga journey began at age 16 when I purchased ‘the complete illustrated book of yoga’ by Swami Vishnu Devananda. Surprisingly I would be required to use the same book 24 years later in my teacher training in the Bahamas. The training was spiritually, mentally and physically arduous to say the least.
Fast forward to 2023, I’ve been graced with the opportunity to instruct yoga in Thunder Bay for more than 20 years. I’m passionate about yoga. ‘The practice’ as it’s called, will give great quality to your life.
When you come to class you will have a one hour ‘retreat.’ An hour to retreat inwards. To slow down. To catch your breath, calm your mind, and soften body tension.
There’s never any pressure to do any of the moves. We do a mix of gentle body awakenings with an occasional dash of strengthening.
My motto is ‘do what you can ‘ … you’ll be pleasantly surprised after a short period of ‘practising’. Yoga is for every – body .
