Yin Yang


This class is taught by:

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"

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!

Kelly Fife

As a competitive gymnast, Kelly was trained from a very young age to ignore how her body was feeling and to push through pain. This mindset stayed with her for years, but ironically only lead to tight muscles and stiff, achy joints. Although Kelly was initially drawn to yoga to increase pain free range of motion, she has since learned how to move and breathe with awareness, as well as experienced the physical and psychological benefits of leading a mindful life.
 
A recent graduate from De La Sol's 2011-2012 Yoga Teacher Training Program, Kelly's classes are inspired by the benefits of maintaining proper alignment while moving in and out of postures, as well as by the enjoyment she has found in moving with breath while flowing from one posture to the next.

As a student in her class, Kelly hopes you will find space to move with your own breath, explore your own practice, and eventually experience how a mindful practice on the mat can lead to greater overall well-being once you are off.

Kelly's favourite yoga pose is Adho Mukha Vrksasana (Handstand). Even if just for a split second, there is a feeling of weightlessness she can find there that she never experienced standing on two feet!

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.
