Beautiful practice with Kate this morning (Tuesday). Thank you so much. It was a great way to start the day!!!! Lauren xo
Yoga found Esther in her late twenties when a friend took her to
a well-known Ashtanga studio in Toronto. Despite a fit body, an
athletic up-bringing and a health-conscious attitude - she was
training for a marathon at the time - yoga kicked her butt. She was
instantly humbled by it physically and emotionally.
While working as a Nutritionist at the time and despite having a
real passion for helping people, she really did not see her clients
changing patterns of behaviour and getting healthier. With yoga she
saw people reshaping their entire lives and decided then that she
would one day teach yoga. That was well over a decade ago. She has
great respect and reverence for this practice and will consider
herself a humble student of yoga forever.
She has never had an ego about this practice and is a yogini
today because nothing else makes sense to her. Yoga continues to
challenge, humble, humour and empower her. She needs yoga to exist
harmoniously. She needs it for so much more than stress relieving.
Although having reshaped her body faster than any other
health-regime, she has never considered it exercise. It is more
akin to therapy. It helps her check in with herself, it helps her
think and feel clearly, it helps her stay in the moments of her
life more profoundly.
Esther is a graduate of Yogaspace's YTT program at the RYT200
level, as well as a graduate of their Therapeutic Yoga program. She
continues to study and take workshops in Iyengar, Yin and
Restorative Yoga. She is also a Nutritionist and holds her NCCP
Coach and CPR certificates.
