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.
Through encouragement and support from her family and friends Naz completed her 200hr Hatha-Vinyasa Teacher Training at De La Sol.
Naz's passion for fitness and desire to explore mind/body connection flourishes through her yoga teaching. Her classes offer powerful fitness sequences, with a focus on flow and core. Naz's favourite poses are triangle pose "trikonasana " and four limbed staff pose "chaturanga dandasana"
Whether she is teaching or taking a class at the studio she always feels surrounded by so many awesome people which makes it hard not to love De La Sol and the Sol Yoga family! Meeting such beautiful individuals who continue to inspire her is just one of the many reasons why she wanted to join the De La Sol and the Sol Yoga family.
Michelle leads a vegetarian lifestyle and loves spending time with family and friends. Michelle's favourite pose is Urdhva Dhanurasana because it is an uplifting posture. It stimulates the nervous system and opens the heart, and can leave you glowing with energy and vitality for the rest of the day. Also, in this pose Michelle, with her heart shining to the sky, likes to send an intention or a message of love to someone who she feels needs it.
