Meet our Teachers

Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success.

My approach to yoga is to be sensitive of the body, heart, and mind. By simply coming to our mats and breathing consciously, perhaps working with postures and perhaps not, we can begin to create a space where we feel safe and calm. When we can be more focused and start to let go of the world beyond our mat (even for just 5 minutes), we can begin to inhabit ourselves – not just passively noticing our breath and body but really feeling our breath and body. Then slowly we learn to how to take the feelings we create on the mat, off the mat and out into the world.

Christine

Christine

Although Christine has practiced yoga most of her life, it wasn't until she suffered the profound loss of her son in December 2014 that she found her way back to the mat for good. Beginning with Bereavement Yoga in January 2015, she began to find peace, love, and joy again. While searching for answers, what she discovered was a softening into life and the true meaning of yoga practice. Yoga gave her the opportunity to slow down, breathe deeply and find her centre. Practicing yoga on and off the mat deepened her compassion not only for herself but for others around her, so much so that she just had to find a way to share it with as many people as she could. Christine began her formal Yoga Teacher Training journey in September 2015 and the internal spark was ignited. Christine's love of learning and sharing these lessons and experiences bring a sincerity, compassion, understanding, and encouragement to her classes. Join Christine as she leads you through series of asana (yoga poses) allowing for the opportunity to slow down, take a look inside to see, feel, and breathe yourself into places of forgiveness, letting go, gratitude, and self-love.

Dagmar

I’ve always been passionate about health and wellness, as well as aging gracefully.  By being a very spiritual person myself, I instantly fell in love with yoga from day one. I became a passionate yoga practitioner realizing that it made me feel better on a physical level, doing things that I wouldn’t imagine I could do on my mat.  I also progressed on spiritual and mental levels as well, on and off of the mat.  On my life’s journey, I felt the need to share with others what I had learned, and continue to learn, and that’s how I decided to take a step forward to officially become a yoga teacher. Teaching and helping others to find that inner calmness and learning how to be in the present moment, has become Dagmar’s Dharma.  As a Yoga Teacher, I aspire to inspire others to create a better relationship between body and mind, be curious and explore the possibilities.

“When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds: Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.”
- Patanjali

I'm absolutely passionate about yoga and wellness!

I have been practicing for 20 years and after taking my first 200 hour training, my passion only grew stronger and I felt called to share yoga with everybody around me. My classes are for both the new yogi and the experienced one. I believe that our breath can heal and transform us. I also truly believe yoga to be a path to enlightenment and that it should be accessible to everyone.

I am also certified in Yoga Nidra, Yin Yoga, Pre- and Post-Natal Yoga, Rainbow Kids Yoga. I am a Reiki attuned practitioner as well as a Barre Teacher.

Marianne

My personal yoga practice began about 25 years ago when I needed a low-impact form of exercise. Beyond the physical benefits, I stay with it because of the numerous benefits, not the least of which was better sleep! I completed my training with Gerda Krebs in 2000 and continue to attend workshops and classes on a regular basis.

I love to teach beginners and I also have experience teaching Yin, Pre/Post Natal Yoga, Kids, Teens and Family Yoga. I believe that laughter is a necessary component of a yoga class.

One of the things I enjoy most about teaching beginners is watching students become more aware of their bodies. There are amazing moments in our practice when our unconscious movements and patterns become conscious. I love to hear about your 'a-ha!' moments.

I am passionate about energetic modalities and have trained in Usui Reiki, Reflexology and Energy Medicine.

I realized early on in my life that I loved to draw, paint, skate and dance. I believe and feel that as an artist, I create from inspiration and love, of what is around me. Nature inspires me, in particular images of florals, trees and landscapes as well as wildlife.  I am still forever playing with methods and ideas of pieces of art I want to do create.

Recently I collaborated with poet Makda Mulatu and painted more abstract imagery to give a visual compliment to her beautiful on self love and bravery!

I hope my pieces that I create, connect with people a sense of joy and love. Every painting has its story that I love to share.
