Lindsay's love of yoga began as a connection to the physical aspect of the practice and matured into a spiritual journey. Being involved in competitive dance and more athletic styles of fitness, the mindful aspect was quite a challenge, but her true love for yoga blossomed when she began to dive into the spiritual side of yoga. Suffering from anxiety and depression along with losing her mom to cancer, the mindfulness aspect of yoga became the most challenging and most important to Lindsay's growth. Feeling a pull to get certified, she took the leap in 2020 and obtained her 200-hour certification. The experience was life changing and opened a deep connection to the practice of yoga, making it a foundation of her every day. Once Lindsay had the opportunity to teach in the community, it became even clearer that this was her passion. Lindsay’s teaching style is inclusive for all, with the goal of creating a safe enough space that allows each student to show up exactly as they are. With the healing Lindsay has received from yoga, she is passionate to create that same opportunity for others in the community. Lindsay has additional trainings in trauma, chair, kids, as well as a 50-hour certification in Yin, her first love. When Lindsay is not on her mat, you can find her touring around markets, making fresh pasta and spending time with her husband Kyle and her five dogs.
I believe we are more than our thoughts, experiences and emotions. Yoga helps us move beyond what may seem like limitations. Or our limiting beliefs surrounding them. To find a connection to our true selves; the true nature of our being. Yoga came into my life at a time I was really struggling, what felt like true rock bottom or a dark night of the soul as they say. My lifelong struggle with mental health, specifically anxiety, depression and debilitating panic attacks, felt like something I would never be able to work through. Like I would be stuck with it forever and nothing could help. The amount of healing I was able to obtain from Yoga and its practices was so invaluable, and like nothing I had ever experienced before. Eventually, it inspired me to want to teach and hold space for others experiencing similar challenges. Which in time, my passion for the practices has evolved into many different forms of teaching and for different kinds of students. The yoga I love most are interoceptive and slower practices such as Yin, Restorative and Nidra as they have been so supportive for regulating my nervous system and in recovering from my personal trauma’s. A lot of what I love about these practices is the empowerment we can obtain from self exploration and healing. Since the birth of my first baby last July, I have grown extremely passionate about Pre, Peri and Post Natal yoga practices as well as Baby and Me and Children’s Yoga. Supporting parents and their sweet babes on their journey in life feels so fulfilling! My mission is to offer inclusive and encouraging spaces for exploration and self-study, incorporating inner awareness practices, breath work and gentle movement. My work is inspired and guided by the ancient tradition of yoga and supported by modern science. I am a 500 RYT from Prana Yoga and C-IAYT Yoga Therapist from Ajna Yoga in Victoria. -True healing comes from the self and a good yoga facilitator is just holding space. I used to think it was the
I believe yoga can be embraced by everyone. My yoga journey has spanned 15 years and I have been so fortunate to have practiced with many amazing teachers. I decided in 2022 that I wanted to expand my practice and love of yoga by completing my 200 hour teacher training. Initially teaching was not my goal but after learning so much from incredible teachers and fellow students I felt the desire to share and contribute. I have also completed training in Teaching Kids Yoga and am continuing with training workshops as I work on my 300 hour certification. I would like all people, especially those who do not see themselves as ‘yogis’ or think yoga ‘is for them’, to discover this beautiful practice of movement, breath and mindfulness. My approach is light and welcoming, safe and inclusive. Teaching children through joyful movement and play can inspire a lifelong practice. Starting a yoga practice in the mature years can awaken and nourish one’s body. Discovering yoga at any age enhances life.
Hello! I’m Dana! I am first responder and yoga teacher. I began practicing yoga 18 years ago, but was not consistent- at all! Finally 2 years ago I came back to yoga with consistency and grace for myself. I love the way yoga regulates and calms my nervous system in stressful times. This is why I love guiding practitioners to gain skills and tools, to live more grounded, balanced, and fulfilled lives. I teach inclusive classes for any-body! Traditional types of yoga are my favourite, especially Hatha! You can expect meditation, breath work, mindfulness, and to be met warmly where ever you are on your journey
Yoga is more than a physical practice, it is a lifestyle. I discovered yoga in May of 2023 when I reconnected with an old friend who was well into her practice at the time. She explained how she was going to Rishikesh, India to study Akhanda yoga in September. I decided a month before she left to come along with her, and the trip started that changed my life. India helped me discover what my life’s true purpose is, to help heal people and their relationship to spirituality. My dream is to move back to India and build my own spiritual retreat center and eventually write a book about my crazy experiences since awakening. In My Akhanda yoga classes you can always expect asana (movement), mantra (chanting/sound), pranayama (breathing techniques), meditation, and yogic wisdom (philosophy). Come to my classes to experience a great balance of workout and spiritual healing!
