This class is taught by:

Sara Lang

Sara began practicing yoga in 2007 to bring balance into her stressful and busy life. She worked full time as a Social Service Worker supporting women in recovery from addiction, crisis counselling with the Peel Regional Police and many non-for-profits supporting Hamilton's homeless.
 
She decided to move away from the Social Services full time and complete her 200hr Hatha-Vinyasa Teacher Training with Katie McClelland & Andre Grandbois at De La Sol Yoga. One of her greatest passions as a teacher is making yoga accessible to everyone. She strives to help students discover their inherent goodness and find balance in the body, mind and spirit.
 
Sara's favourite pose is Urdhva Dhanurasana (Full Wheel) because it's an exploration into the unknown with an open heart.

Her love of nature, health and spirituality keep her classes inspirational and loving. Her approach to teaching emphasizes the transformative nature of the practice. Samantha herself, credits her yoga practice and time in teacher training as transformational and has helped her to discover a greater joy and enthusiasm for all aspects of her life both on and off the mat.

Alaina Evans

As a competitive dancer throughout her childhood and teenage years, Alaina first came to yoga as a way to stay fit and flexible as she came into adulthood. Soon after beginning to practice she realized that there was so much more to yoga than the physical postures. She began to notice how she was able to cope with stressful situations and felt more balanced in her everyday life. Alaina loves the physical, mental and spiritual connection that yoga marries. She loves to challenge herself physically while working to maintain a calm breath and calm mind in her practice and loves to bring this to her teaching as well. She graduated from De La Sol 200 YTT program and immediately began teaching. She has also been certified in Prenatal and Children's Yoga. She is so excited to be able to share her passion for the practice with others.
Her favourite pose is Garudasana (Eagle Pose) as she loves the feeling of fresh prana and energy flowing through the body after restricting the flow in the pose.

Shanel Scott

Shanel discovered yoga through her first love, dance. While completing her BFA in dance at York University she took to her yoga mat to stretch, strengthen and release stress. Over the years of practice, Shanel found yoga did more than fulfill her love for movement, it also became a spiritual journey showing her a deeper connection to the body and soul.

 

Shanel enjoys teaching flow classes allowing the inspiration of dance and her love of movement guide her. As well, Shanel is a Reiki Master Teacher who loves to bring her passion for the healing arts together with asana in a Reiki Flow.

 

Her favourite posture right now is savasana. Here the rest of the world melts away as the mind and body surrender to the yoga mat. Taking those last few moments of class to go within, give thanks for the practice and find a deep sense of peace.
