Receiving YTT Certification from Swami Shantimurti Saraswati, New Zealand 2016

My Yoga Story

In 2012 I injured myself trying to follow a Yoga video; an advanced yoga video - but what did I know? Not very much it seems. So, wanting to learn how to do yoga on my own, in 2016 an interest in attending a yoga retreat resulted in me attending Yoga Teacher Training in New Zealand at Ashram Yoga! Followed that same year with Yoga Nidra Certification with Sheila Cullen in Toronto, then in 2021 MyoYin Certification - a blend of Yin yoga, Myofascial Release and Spine Anatomy with Yinspiration

The most important thing I learned:

Make the pose fit the body, do not make the body fit the pose.

There is a yoga for all bodies, all ages, all needs.
