This class is taught by:

Robin Lamar

Robin Lamarr is a yoga and pilates instructor, thai massage practitioner and eager student of diverse movement practices. She began her yoga journey in 2005, quickly becoming a dedicated student at Downward Dog Yoga Centre, under the guidance of Diane Bruni, Ron Reid, Amica Hilton, Sheldon Shannon and David Bruni. In 2013, Robin completed Downward Dog’s 250hr Teacher Training and immediately started teaching regularly at various studios in Toronto. Since then, she has completed over 700hrs in continuing education training, including Yoga Detour’s comprehensive approach to building a safe, strong and sustainable movement practice - created by Cecily Milne and Kathryn Bruni-Young, Michael Stone's Breathing the Body into Stillness - his approach to intersecting yoga asana with sitting meditation, as well as MISFITMETHOD Teacher Training’s unique blend of yoga, pilates and dance - created by Amber Joliat.

Robin’s thoughtfully sequenced classes are driven by music. Her approach is multifaceted, accessible, yet challenging. Robin is committed to exploring various ways to share mindful movement, endeavouring to make the journey into self graceful, insightful and playful.

Lauren Speziale

Lauren’s passion for yoga centres around the practice of awareness, self-inquiry and interoception. It is through this ongoing practice that the relationship with the self is strengthened. Through Yin Yang yoga, Lauren helps her students to find a balance in their practice that involves work, effort and growth, with being receptive, passive and grounded, bringing more harmony into their lives.
Lauren practiced yoga through both of her pregnancies and experienced many of the benefits yoga has to offer while carrying her babies and preparing for their births. She was so grateful for yoga during these times, that it ignited her excitement to share the gift of yoga with others!

Lauren’s passion for the practice continues to grow with the study of Ayurveda, which is the art of finding harmony in all relationships, first with the self, then with others, and the universe. She encourages her students to continue their practice off the mat - to practice connection to the breath and awareness of the body and mind on our mats, to then be able to step into our roles and relationships more connected and aware, at home, work and in the community.

Kerry Casarin

Kerry began practicing yoga as a teenager, and was instantly drawn to the physical challenge. She continued to practice as a means of exercise but her focus shifted after the birth of her daughter, and her practice became a way to find quiet, mindful space in her busy life. While she still enjoys a vigorous flow class, she equally enjoys melting into her mat for restorative yoga too!

After becoming a mom, Kerry decided that she wanted to spread her love of yoga with everyone she could, and completed her 200 hr teacher training in 2013 at De La Sol in Hamilton; she also studied prenatal and postnatal yoga through the Yoga Sanctuary in Toronto, and children’s yoga with Yoga Rocks.
 
Kerry's favourite pose is Garudasana,(Eagle Pose). It makes her feel fierce and powerful, yet soft and graceful.
This 45 minute class is intended for parents or caregivers of wee ones up to 12 months. During this class, you will gradually rebuild core strength, build healthy pelvic floor muscles, and alleviate some of the typical aches and pains that come with motherhood. You’ll spend time moving on your own, but also spend time bonding while you incorporate baby into poses. And if baby cries, we’ll set you up in a cozy pose to snuggle or feed until they’re content again. Yoga Nest pass required for this class.
