Yin Yang


This class is taught by:

Erin Aquin

Erin has been passionate about sharing yoga since she was 20 years old. She is a Certified Hatha Vinyasa and Pre-natal Instructor and a Practitioner of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, who began formally teaching in 2003. In 2006, Erin completed a second 200+ hour Advanced Training in Montreal with two inspirational teachers from two different traditions, Mark Darby and Hart Lazer. It was this experience that inspired her to blend different forms of yoga and make it accessible and enjoyable for as many students as possible.
 
As a senior teacher at De La Sol, Erin has teaches a specialized brand of Yin Yang Yoga that bridges vigorous flow sequences, long held postures and meditation with concepts of Chinese Medicine and modern spirituality. She is thrilled to be part of the De La Sol community and in her time not teaching at the studio she works with students worldwide through her articles and videos at www.aquinyoga.com.
 
Among Erin's favourite yoga poses is Bakasana (Crow). It took almost 7 years to earn it and it feels great to fly!

Naz (Rebecca) Zarezadegan

Naz's love for yoga was first discovered in 2002. Struggling with obesity at the time and knowing changes needed to be made, she started her daily practice in her living room to a Yoga dvd until eventually making her way into her first studio class. With a daily practice, and balanced nutrition Naz fell in love with Yoga and successfully lost 125 pounds and has successfully maintained her dedication to self improvement.

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"

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.

Michelle Hudecki

After years of competitive gymnastics, Michelle found yoga in 2006 in an effort to heal and connect to her body and spirit. After an ankle injury she could no longer compete and found yoga was able to fill what she felt had been missing. Over the years, the practice gradually infused into every aspect of her life. Michelle completed her first 200 hour training program at De La Sol Yoga Studio and is still continuing her education further. Some of Michelle's teachers and biggest influences include, Doug Swenson, Kino McGregor, Meghan Currie and of course, Katie McClelland. Michelle is passionate about teaching and making yoga accessible to the community. Michelle’s motto is a body in motion stays in motion.

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.

"I have been a seeker and I still am, but I stopped asking the books and the stars. I started listening to the teachings of my soul". – Rumi

A popular style of practice where the first half of the class is vigorous (a level 1-2 flow) and the second half is passive and restorative.
