CUSTOMIZED PRACTICE TO RELIEVE CHRONIC PAIN
My mission is to achieve the best possible results for my students and clients as a Yoga Teacher, Yoga Instructor and Yoga Therapist.
As a Yoga Teacher: My mission is to provide solid foundation of yoga philosophy, anatomy and asana to my students for them to offer a safe practice in the community. Encourage them to be a student filled with curiosity, and then allow teaching to follow after.
As a Yoga Instructor: My mission is to create a safe, non-judgmental, and non-competitive environment for students while practicing. Encourage them to explore new levels of possibilities in their bodies and mind through breath. Educating student that Yoga is a journey of finding balance, both on and off the mat, which lead to honor their authentic selves and accepting limitations.
As a Yoga Therapist: My mission is to treat each client as a unique individual and customize the practice to address the root cause of their condition. Empower the client to implement and evolve personalized yoga practice, that not only addresses the illness in a multi-dimensional manner but also aims to alleviate his/her suffering in a progressive, non-invasive and complementary manner.
Help to prevent the occurrence or re-occurrence of underlying causes of illness and move towards improved health and well-being.
My Yoga journey began 12 years ago when I attended a 90-minute yoga session at a fundraising event. I was intrigued by the practice and understood that yoga is beyond curvy poses. I felt the connection between mind body and breath and I was completely relaxed at the end of the practice. There was no chatter in my mind and no pain in my neck and shoulders. I did not have enough words to describe this unique experience and therefore I decided to join the weekly practice to explore further into this wellness field. It took two years for me to move from "do I have to go to can I attend multiple times in a week". After two years, I felt the need to share the experience with others and decided to go through formal training.
Since 2010, my formal Yoga training includes:
I have gained valuable experience over the last ten years and learned a lot through dealing with various clients/students. It made me a better student and educator, I will be always a student first and a teacher later.
Currently, i am offering my practices through online and in-person (maximum three in a group).
I also work as a Yoga Therapist for the Chiropractor's patients who suffer from chronic pain for a long time and can be benefitted by adding gentle yoga stretches and breathing practices to compliment with the treatment.
I have also worked for community connections in Whitby for 4 years teaching Hatha, Vinyasa and Restorative yoga.
I have worked as a supply yoga instructor for the abilities Center in Whitby, teaching yoga for seniors and children with multiple limitations.
