This was a wonderful experience. I'm in Florida and had the pleasure of the online class with Ryan. I picked the right first class to try out Chrysalis Yoga. I've signed up for two more this week and will definitely take Ryan's class again. Thank you.
I was introduced to yoga in 1999 while living in South Africa (born and raised). It wasn’t until I came to Canada in 2001 that I fell deeply in love with it. Yoga became a sanctuary for me during times of grief. It was a place where my mind stopped as I focused on the yoga postures and my breath. In this space of a still mind, a whole world opened up for me.
Being a yoga student first, I took my first yoga teacher training over 12 years ago and have gone on to do three more teacher trainings. I have owned Chrysalis Yoga for over nine years now. I love training yoga teachers-to-be – there’s nothing more powerful than witnessing a group of students bonding over six months and fully transforming their lives by delving deeply into the principles of yoga.
My new studies in Tantra Yoga and Ayurveda have awakened me to the potential of living in harmony with life – awakening to inner energy. My yoga practices are heavily influenced by breath, meditation, and intelligent sequencing of poses, while grounded in alignment to keep everyone safe. I bring compassion and sensitivity to my classes to challenge students to access an inner wisdom available to us all.
