Recently completed the beginners L1 series with Deborah, she is “AWESOME” learnt so much from her. So disappointed that I wasn't able to continue to L2 but, I will definitely try other classes in my spare time.
Vicki is a yoga teacher based in Toronto. Her approach to teaching yoga is contemporary, inter-disciplinary, trauma informed and innovative. Her style of teaching is in constant evolution reflecting her personal investigation into yoga, current and past teachers, and the zeitgeist we live in.
She skillfully weaves themes and insight from years of personal practice and a deep curiosity about life together with poetic metaphor, anatomy, and humour, placing emphasis on the therapeutic and holistic value of yoga for our body mind and lives. Her approach centres on offering somatic sensitive instruction that invites students to cultivate their curiosity, exploring and mapping their own body mind experience with the tools of yoga, at their own pace.
Inspired by the processes of ageing, Vicki has studied therapeutic yoga applications for Osteoporosis with Ellen Saltonstall and Dr. Fischer, NY. She recently commenced training in Somatic Experiencing®. Vicki has been practicing yoga since 1994 and teaching since 2003. She was a previously a licensed Anusara® yoga teacher (2004-2012) and is now independent of any particular school or lineage of yoga. Vicki has also lived and taught yoga in Tucson and Tel Aviv. She founded a nomadic yoga centre in East Toronto in 2010, that continues to thrive and since then has consistently offered yoga to the local community.
