Colleen began practicing yoga over a decade ago and within the practice found a path of lifelong learning and growth. She is also an outdoor educator who has taught wilderness skills and rock climbing for the last 11 years. She is particularly interested in bringing the practice of yoga to as many people as possible and bringing yoga off the mat, finding the meditative aspects in and connection to all areas of life. She is a 300-hour trained teacher through Shanti Yoga in Nelson, where she also teaches weekly classes. Her classes always include focused pranayama and intentional sequencing with attention to anatomy and alignment for a safe, balanced practice. She is excited to begin teaching in the community!
Vinyasa Flow: Wed 9:30 – 11:00am Enjoy connecting movement and breath to unite body, mind, and spirit in this invigorating practice. We’ll flow through sun salutations and standing sequences designed to create space and balance throughout the body, with a focus on proper alignment and honoring one’s own body. We’ll also take time to unwind with seated and supine work towards the end of class. Suitable for all levels, as stages and modifications will be offered.
Mellow Flow: Sat 9:30 – 11:00am A toned down, slowed down version of vinyasa flow, with similar elements but fewer poses and sequences in each class. Expect to flow with focus, expanding and deepening your practice with sequencing designed for an optimum sense of openness and grounding. A wonderful way to stretch out and rebalance after a long week. Suitable for all levels.
