Led Primary Series | YOGA 8


This class is taught by:

Kelly Bortolin

Kelly began her love affair with yoga over 20 years ago. Being an athlete, her first draw to yoga was to attain mental and emotional strength and peace in the same way she had physically.

Yoga put Kelly on a path of self discovery and awakened awareness and inspired her passion for facilitating healing and growth in others. Kelly is also a Holistic Healer and Life Coach. Her intention is to combine all of her gifts and modalities to facilitate healing on all levels for her students.

Kelly has completed 200 hour YTTs in both Integrative yoga therapy and Vinyasa Flow. She has also completed Pre/Post Natal TT, YogaRocks Kids and Teens TT, and Yin/Yang TT.

Kelly’s favourite postures are Astavakrasana (eight-angle pose) as it demands strength, flexibility, concentration, balance and a connection with curiousity and playfulness and Adho Mukha Vrksasana (Handstand) as Kelly loves to be upside down while connecting with a sense of commitment, strength, grace and fun!

Tim Smith

Tim started his yoga journey in 2003 with books and through self instruction he developed a consistent home Hatha practice. In 2011 after 8 years of home practice he took his first yoga class and quickly gravitated to Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga where he eventually met Ron Reid at Downward Dog Yoga Centre in Toronto. Through Ron's training Tim deepened his understanding of body movement within Ashtanga's first series and the beginning of second series. In 2015 Tim furthered his yoga studies by making his first trip to Mysore, India to study with Sharath Jois, the director of the Shri K Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute and the grandson of the institute founder Pattabhi Jois. Tim continues to practice Ashtanga daily under the capable instruction of KPJAYI Authorized Lv 2 teacher Anna Muzzin and has completed second series with Anna's guidance. Tim now blends tradition with evolution to support growth and understanding of the practice of yoga in a non harmful way which involves an open dialog between student and teacher.
The traditional Primary Series as taught by Sri K Pattabhi Jois. This sequence never changes week to week, as the practitioner commits it to memory, it takes on a meditative flow. Please allow 90min.
