Exploring modern yoga has become a mine field of blind leading the blind, with emphasis on Yoga, for asana's sake.
““If getting deeper into a pose isn’t getting me deeper into my life, then why am i doing it?””
Developing yoga as a tool for exploration greatly influences the teaching style and approach Peter takes to exploring the depths of yoga. In 2012 Peter was introduced to yoga though one of the more common avenues of discovery, asana. Being drawn by the allure of physical activity amongst a mostly female and nurturing client base created an easy place to find something that felt like personal intimacy/sovereignty. Not long after finding this connection, it was further explored though teacher trainnings, philosophy and long held silence. His practice has continued to develop and branch out, all coming from the root of simply connecting to a place of stillness/fullness/emptiness. This is exactly the intention behind every class, to look for a space in ones mind that is free of pattern, a place to rest and come to know the part of us that is consciousness. Classes are often accompanied by bowls or chanting and always leave room for practitioners to explore their own practice as it comes to them.
After completing her first 200h RYT in 2013 training program under the tutelage of Katie McClelland, the endless study continued with noted instructors such as Doug Swenson, Kino MacGregor and Meghan Currie.
Michelle has used yoga to the benefit of many facets of her life and passionately passes along that experience to all of her students, regardless of skill level.
While serious about her practice she likes to keep the atmosphere in class light and welcoming for all.
Michelle's favourite pose is Ustrasana because it is an uplifting posture, which stimulates the nervous system and opens the heart. This pose leaves you with a glowing energy and vitality for the rest of the day!
