Weekly Class : Wednesday (level 3) 6:00PM

“I was first introduced to yoga in 2001 while training at the Rotterdam Dance Academy on the brink of my professional dance career. As a result, my personal practice has evolved alongside, and through an intimate relationship with, my artistic development as a dancer. Yoga began as an effective form of corporal conditioning for me, however, over time it has come to deeply influence the ways in which I move through, engage with, and think about the world. I first ventured to India to practice in 2005 and my interest in mind/body unity continues to grow; it has inspired the pursuit of a degree in Psychology/Sexuality, and the cultivation of a rewarding and ongoing Vipassana practice. I initially completed a 250hr Hatha Yoga teacher training at Ashtanga Yoga Montreal, and have since supplemented this with focused certifications in Trauma Recovery Yoga and Elderly Yoga. Through being a teacher, I have discovered a profound joy in facilitating for others a connection to yoga and an exploration of the mind/body. I am grateful to my many yoga teachers around the world who have so generously shared with me their knowledge of this ancient Indian tradition. I look forward to being a lifelong student while continuing to evolve as a teacher.”

What is Mysore style Ashtanga yoga?
Teaching in the tradition of Sri. K. Pattabhi Jois, Mysore style is the traditional method of practicing Ashtanga Yoga.  Students practice independently, according to the Ashtanga sequence, under the guidance of a teacher.  Students receive the support, adjustments and level of challenge that encourages the development of their individual practice.

Can beginners practice Mysore style?
Yes.  Rooted in parampara, the direct transmission of knowledge from the teacher to student, this system allows each student to practice at their pace and level, while benefiting from individual adjustments and support from the teacher. Delve deeper into your practice whether you are beginning or experienced. All levels welcome.
