Vinyasa Flow Intro


This class is taught by:

Erin Aquin

Erin has been passionate about sharing yoga since she was 20 years old. She is a Certified Hatha Vinyasa and Pre-natal Instructor and a Practitioner of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, who began formally teaching in 2003. In 2006, Erin completed a second 200+ hour Advanced Training in Montreal with two inspirational teachers from two different traditions, Mark Darby and Hart Lazer. It was this experience that inspired her to blend different forms of yoga and make it accessible and enjoyable for as many students as possible.
 
As a senior teacher at De La Sol, Erin has teaches a specialized brand of Yin Yang Yoga that bridges vigorous flow sequences, long held postures and meditation with concepts of Chinese Medicine and modern spirituality. She is thrilled to be part of the De La Sol community and in her time not teaching at the studio she works with students worldwide through her articles and videos at www.aquinyoga.com.
 
Among Erin's favourite yoga poses is Bakasana (Crow). It took almost 7 years to earn it and it feels great to fly!

Steve Ferrell

Steve found his pathway to Yoga as a bodybuilder and personal trainer who was always feeling tight, sore and looking for “more” out of his physical workouts. Steve tried his first class with Hamilton’s Alex Bovkis and immediatley fell in love. Within 3 months Steve was enrolled in his first 200hr Teacher Training with Heather Greaves. Steve was certified through Integrative Yoga Therapy (IYT), a style founded by renowned Yoga therapist, Joseph LePage. Steve found his way to De La Sol where he immediately fell in love with the fluidity, strength and meditative qualities of the Ashtanga Vinyasa practice. Steve is always learning, and combined with his interests in Human Anatomy, Ayruveda and Buddhist Meditation, he continues to deepen his practice. He offers a challenging, invigorating but very quirky and light hearted class, blending the physical with an emphasis on the mental and spiritual facets of the practice.

Allison Stark

Having been first introduced to yoga by my mother as a young child, I was always intrigued by it and dabbled here and there over the years but didn’t take the steps towards a dedicated practice until much later in life. In 2014 I joined De La Sol having spent the previous year recovering from a stroke. There, I found my practice, I found proper alignment, I found my breath, and I found myself, all amongst a beautiful community of people – students and teachers alike. Having recently completed the amazing experience of De La Sol YTT this year, I am developing my teaching style to support the unique story of each student from the beginner to multi-decade practiced yogi. I believe it is incredibly important to develop an eye that moves students into shapes that work best for their physicality and moves them away from trying to mimic the people next to them or what they’ve seen in photos. Off the mat, my passion for teaching chair yoga to seniors has confirmed “Yoga is not about touching your toes, it’s about what you learn on the way down” ~ Jigar Gor

Learn the fundamentals of a vinyasa style practice, where movement is linked with breath. Expect to sweat in this class geared to those new to yoga practice. A general level of fitness is recommended.
