My classes are meant for persons of all age who have knowledge or know nothing about the art form. I am here to make you understand that yoga is a personal journey which resonates with your own unique personality. My classes will not have any judgement or comparison. I will make you realise your innate physical and mental strength which you didn't know existed in you.
I offer classes for all abilities and learning styles. My vast experience in teaching has developed my ability to successfully tailor lessons to each individual. My classes are very student focused. I'm friendly, approachable, down-to-earth. I pride myself in being an excellent communicator and I have a natural enthusiasm. My main objectives of teaching yoga are: fun and form.
Hello! I grew up dancing in British-Columbia where I trained and performed in ballet and contemporary dance. Upon graduation, I was given the opportunity to study performance dance where I continued training in ballet and contemporary dance at Ryerson University in Toronto, Ontario.
For my class styles please refer (concealed information) I teach sustainable yoga where the practise is more dynamic and driven to create more deep connection within your body and my mindfulness technique are taught using different breathing techniques. KIDS YOGA: I teach for kids in their own playful language where yoga is integrated with their school syllabus.
I am inspired by the quest to discover who and what are at our essence, and to explore the relationship between reality and consciousness. I taught therapeutic yoga at a senior residence for a year. I see the benefit of my daily yoga practice. I find calm, peace, and joy within me. I strongly believe in the benefits of self-care and enjoy supporting others in the time they set aside for it.
I base my teaching on what I see, how people in a class move, in the case of private- how the individual moves and his or her history and goals. My classes are "sneaky strong," full of slow, specific movements that are solid and not hyper-mobile. Students find my classes very brainy and solid- my strength is offering students precise body awareness through my language and by taking our time.
I teach my classes so anyone can do the sequences. Both the Beginner and the advanced student. I start with a mediation, warmup, breathing, the routine and end with mediation. I always include the following: Toes, Hip and wrist stretches.
My classes are based on embodied bio-mechanics and can range from gentle, slow Yin-style meditations to more heat-producing Vinyasa Flows, and everywhere in-between! Sequences are inspired by the season, time of day, energy of the student, and phase of the moon.
Yoga is more than a physical exercise, it is a mind / body connection experience. I fell in love with how calm I always felt after I left a class, the mind chatter had been settled. I have been practising for 7 years. My passion for yoga was so strong it became inevitable to teach it. I completed an illuminated 200 YTT program and am certified through Yoga Alliance Canada.
I teach yoga to help others feel good, physically, mentally and spiritually. Personally, I aspire to become a better student. As the Chinese proverb says, a good teacher remains a student for the rest of his life. Unlocking your chakras one class at a time.
My classes are focused on correct alignment of Yoga poses, with an emphasis on safety and awareness. I structure my classes to provide a balance between flexibility and strength; work and surrender; challenge and ease. Students can expect to feel centered, balanced, and relaxed after a class.
Sarah likes to teach strong, powerful flow classes, and restorative yin classes. Balance is key! An emphasis on awareness of breath is a key feature of any class taught by Sarah, and modifying poses in order to encourage healthy alignment and natural breath is a vital aspect of her methodology.
My teaching is based on experiential learning. I teach to all learning modes - visual, oratory and experiential. For example, together, we learn about yoga, yoga styles, yoga practices and techniques. Students are then guided through physical practices of yoga. Different sequencing is introduced theoretically and experientially.
My teaching method is to guide students through their practice, not to force anyone or guilt anyone into postures. This practice is for each individual student to find their own strength and comfort. I guide students through a pre-planned set of poses (a sequence), but always allow for modifications and changes through out the class to match how each individual feels in that moment.
I teach Ashtanga, Hatha, vinyasa, Prana and laughter yoga. My classes all have a focus on unifying the mind, body and spirit while having a good workout too. With my extensive knowledge about Hindu and Buddhist mythology, attending my class becomes a transformative experience.
To describe a beginning session in this fluid routine... Keep in mind we want to flow and stretch all the major and minor muscles, tendons and ligaments in our bodies. Do so on a matted/cushioned/carpeted area at least as open as you can swing a bat 360° (that will give you room to move) Wear loose fitting sweat pants, tshirt and socks Be slow... be methodical...
I teach the Ashtanga method whereby the student is taught the series pose by pose, memorizing as they go. As the student becomes proficient with each posture, the teacher continues to give postures in a specific sequential order, working with each student individually.
I teach yoga in a systematic way in order to provide a safe class that suits all practitioners and avoid any injuries. I focus on alignment and breath more than anything else since alignment brings safety and breath catches the fluctuation of the mind.
My teaching methods are always based on the students ability, also I always look for to improve the knowledge that they already have by giving them tips to enhance their balance, strength and flow.
Private yoga sessions offer the personalized instruction necessary to deepen your relationship to your body and the many benefits of the practice including reducing stress, fine tuning asana and developing your connection to your breath. Each private class is based entirely on your needs for where you are now.
My Yoga classes are for all levels of Yoga participants. I am happy to tailor your practice to suit your particular needs and will offer modifications as we go along. If you are unable to leave your home, but want to benefit from Yoga practice, I will bring Yoga to you.
I like to teach based on what the student(s) require in that moment. Although yoga is a combination of the physical, mental, and spiritual self there are times where and individual/group may need to focus on just one aspect of self. My approach is based on both structure and flexibility.
I really believe yoga is for everyone. You shouldn't have to change your body to fit a pose, you can change the pose to fit your body. Find what feels good in your yoga practice, because ultimately, your practice is a gift to yourself! My classes offer options for beginners, and all skill levels are welcome.
I have been practicing yoga for over a decade and teaching for four years now. I prefer to teach private or small groups as it allows me to really work with a client and get to know them both physically and mentally. I feel I am able to build stronger classes and help people through their journey with more compassion when focusing directly on them.
I love creating classes that are catered to the student's needs. A typical class is 1 hour but I am flexible with time depending on the students' needs.
I offer both fast and slow flow classes, depending on the needs and desires of my students. I incorporate various postures, and sequences that promote strength, flexibility and empowerment. I believe yoga should be accessible to all and I create my classes around that philosophy. Yoga is a personal journey and it is my hope to help guide individuals down their own path.
My teaching methods for Hatha yoga are breath to movement, concentrating on staying present leaving your ego at the door, allowing yoga to come into you, feeling it and living a yoga life on and off the mat. Also mindfulness yoga for children and families...
Do you ever say that you can't touch your toes and that's the reason why you won't try yoga? Or maybe you are more comfortable in a smaller class setting? Whatever the reason, I will show you how to bring yoga and wellness into your daily life, based on your schedule and your goals. I completed my training in Rishikesh in 2013 and I am passionate about yoga and what it means for you.
I draw inspiration from studies in Ayurveda, Re-wilding, Somatic Movement, as well as training in Buddhist mindfulness and meditation techniques. My classes build resiliency through strength and flexibility training along with surrendering to what is present in this moment. Private classes are entirely catered to your own needs and desires.
I love working one-on-on with students so that I can tailor each class to them! Moving always with the breath, I focus on alignment and try to provide as many "ah-ha!" moments to my students as possible. I enjoy teching both dynamic flows, and also more ground gentle practices.... what ever the student needs.
