Heather Elson

Heather Elson came to yoga practice in 2002, seeking a balance in a life brimming with full time work and a university course load. After the experience of her first savasana, Heather called her mom from the nearest payphone, enthusing, “you gotta try this yoga thing!” By 2005 Heather was trained as a Kid’s Yoga teacher, and by the middle of 2006 she was certified by Ron Reid and Diane Bruni at Downward Dog. Diving deeper still, 2007 saw her complete an advanced training in Restorative Yoga with Hali Schwartz, and open her own studio in Toronto’s west end. By way of a long, rich and meandering journey, Heather returned to her hometown of Hamilton in January of 2015, pregnant with her second son, and practicing headstand in the backyard right up until he made his appearance! Heather is thrilled to join the De La Sol community, and looks forward to breathing with you. Come and let her sing you into savasana! Favourite pose: Legs up the Wall. Gloriously good for you and so delicious!

Rosanne Shea

Rosanne Shea believes that there is a style of yoga for everyone and every size or shape of body can benefit from the healing and wellness that yoga brings. Rosanne encourages her students to explore this in themselves, and uncover, celebrate, and honor all of the gifts we have.

Her favorite pose is Wild Thing, because of the exhilarating and celebratory feelings it brings!

She has been practising yoga off and on for about 15 years. In the last 6 years she has been drawn to a regular and consistent yoga practise for the meditative and healing qualities.

Rosanne graduated from Del La Sol’s 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training program. She has also completed a 40 hour teacher training in Restorative Yoga, 20 hours in Yoga for Kids, and has a level 2 in Reiki.

A gentle and nurturing practice that uses props, such as bolsters and blankets, to support the body in deep relaxation. Postures are held for longer periods of time in order to stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system and to encourage the body and mind to experience peaceful surrender.
This class is for all levels
