Restorative


This class is taught by:

Anita Kaiser

Anita has been practicing yoga on and off since she was a child. There have been many teachers along the way, but joining Katie's Ashtanga level 2 class over eight years ago really sealed her commitment to continue on this path. Since then the practice has become integral to her health and wellness.

In 2006, Anita trained in Portland to become an Itsy Bitsy Yoga teacher and then trained further with Yoga4Kids in Toronto. She has been teaching babies, toddlers and children since then. In 2011, Anita decided it was time to pursue her adult teacher training. She studied in Windsor, ON with Renee Janisse and obtained her 200 hour RYT certificate. She has been teaching adults since then and is thrilled to be able to offer a safe space for gentle exploration of your body through Asana. Anita is excited to share her love of the healing that yoga can bring to you.

Anita’s favorite pose is currently Utthita Parsvakonasana (extended side angle pose). The flow of energy reminds her to live life to the fullest.

Chris Nguyen

Curiosity is what brought Chris into his first yoga class. That curiosity marked the beginning of an ongoing journey and passion for the practice of yoga and a profound desire to deepen that relationship. 
 
Chris completed De La Sol's 200 hour YTT and is currently studying the Ashtanga Yoga method through his Level 2 authorized teacher, Anna Muzzin. With persistence and dedication, one's yoga practice can only strengthen and grow deeper. In 2015, Chris embarked on two separate trip to Mysore, India to study with R.Sharath Jois and Saraswathi Rangaswamy at KPJAYI (Krishna Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute), the source of Ashtanga yoga. In 2016, Chris completed his third trip. Chris is a certified Functional Range Conditioning Movement Specialist (FRCms) studying under Dr. Andreo Spina. He is also studying the art of hand balancing under renown circus coach. Nicolas Montes de Oca.

  

To Chris, yoga is not something to "excel" at but rather about cultivating contentment, compassion, mindfulness, self acceptance and bringing awareness into the body. Yoga has transformed his life on and off the mat. As a teacher, he aspires to help others find a santosha (contentment) and a deeper connection to themselves. 

  

One of Chris' favourite poses is urdhva dhanurasana (upward bow pose). The feeling of opening up to endless possibilities can be quite addicting.
