Yvonne lives Yoga every day having cultivated a commitment to her practice both through meditation and asana practice. She started out in the Martial Arts receiving black belts in Karate, Kobudo and Tai Chi and shortly after received her teacher’s certificate for teaching Yoga. She sees the body as energy and having explored the element of energetic flow understands the benefits of re energizing our bodies. As we create lines of energy through the body, we also create space through the joints and spine and as our bodies open, our minds begin to open. She understands that balance comes from a calm and focused mind and she therefore sees yoga as food for the body and soul. She encourages the students to bow to the deepest teachings within themselves, revealing their inner light. One who looks outside dreams, one who looks inside awakens. She looks forward to continuing her journey with her students and is thankful for the path that lies ahead.

Back issues drove me to explore the benefits of yoga and I have been hooked ever since. Having been active my whole life - being a former ballet dancer and figure skater, I thought it wouldn’t hurt to give yoga a try. Little did I know the benefits would be more than physical. I’ve been practicing yoga for about 6 years now, and am always looking to improve on my sequences, postures and teaching skills from my students and other teachers.
Students will come to focus on finding that connection of breath with movement. My hope is for my students to leave feeling a positive difference in their body – physically and mentally.
I can’t wait to see where yoga takes me and my body in the future. We are forever students to a beautiful practice.
