Andrea Ting -  andrea@infiniteblissyoga.ca or infiniteblissyoga.ca

Andrea believes the yoga that takes place on our mats is  practice for the yoga that takes place in our lives. In her active classes, expect creative flows unified by precise alignment cues and thought-provoking themes.  In her Yin/Restorative classes, expect to discover a deeper discernment of sensations in your body and access your rest & digest response.

 

Andrea teaches yoga because she aspires to inspire. She believes that we are capable of igniting a revolution from within our own selves. On our yoga mats, we practice not just the physical asanas. We practice loving ourselves unconditionally; we practice honouring our own limitations but also testing our unlimited potential; we practice consciously creating peace within ourselves. When we emerge from our yoga practice as renewed human beings, we radiate peace. We are ready to create an upward spiral that unites us all.

In Andrea's active classes you can expect creative, playful and challenging flows that remain rooted in postural alignment, and she introduces themes that may resonate with our collective common experiences. She also offers an opportunity to connect to stillness and a deeper discernment to your own body's sensations in her Yin and Restorative classes.  Andrea completed her 200-hour teacher training with Eoin Finn | Blissology, and has furthered her studies with - and draws inspiration from - teachers such as Natalie Rousseau, Christine Price Clark, Sjanie McInnis, Bernie Clark, Clara Roberts-Oss, Tianne Allen and Jason Crandell. In 2018 she completed her 300-hour advanced teacher training program at Semperviva Yoga in Vancouver, and now serves as a mentor and educator to burgeoning yoga teachers.

Brad Davis - yinspacebrad@gmail.com & www.dragonflyvision.ca

Expect a foundation of gratitude and inquiry; encouragement to breathe and ‘listen’ deeply; thoughtful cuing towards deepening all facets of one’s practice; held within a circle of gentleness and calm. 

 

Brad Davis (MEd., RYT 500) began his yoga journey 15 years ago while facilitating a leadership and global justice university program beside banyan tree in Southern India. He settled beside the Salish Sea in the land of Raven and Orca, Oak and Fir on the traditional territories of the Lekwungen Peoples in 2010. His yoga teaching, beginning in 2012, has been most strongly formed by the ‘heart opening/heart breaking’ story of the alignment practice of Anusara, woven with the gentle and spacious practice of Yin Yoga, along with ongoing study into the evolving contemporary story of yoga itself. His practice is further influenced by ‘Socially Engaged Buddhism’ and connection to the natural world. Years of exploring different forms of meditation, along with many miles spent sitting on a bicycle and canoe seat, has led to the development of his approach to inserting mindfulness practices in his teaching. He has come to understand and respect the capacity of yoga to increase our strength and mobility, work with the patterns that nourish or limit us, develop resilience and deeply play in our unending journey to becoming more wholehearted beings. Brad believes in the ongoing nurturing of one’s inner teacher, leader, dancer and story-maker, both on and off the mat.

Drop in to the slow, stillness of Yin Space to nurture self, and heal, develop resilience and deeper presence. The practice of Yin yoga is both simple and complex as we spend minutes in a pose in stillness while playing with an edge of sensation as a portal to working with the deeper tissues of the body, flow of energies, and perhaps one’s own stories at times. Opportunity to develop mindfulness practices is an everpresent offer. Additionally, this is a space held with an awareness of the natural world all around us, and the world stories that shape our daily lives.

Mar Dayman - mardayman@gmail.com

With a background in competitive gymnastics as a child, Mar was intrigued by and began the practice of Yoga in the Seventies when it wasn’t well known in Canada, especially in small town Saskatchewan where she grew up. She practiced with the assistance of books and a half hour television program by Kareen Zebroff. After that, her main focus was on raising a family so her practice was sporadic until 7 years ago when she began a consistent yoga practice 3 to 4 times a week. That regular practice had such a positive effect on her physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing that she enrolled in Moksana’s Teacher Training Program in the fall of 2018 and received her certification. Although her practice of Yoga began 40 plus years ago and she is in her sixties, now is the time that she can dedicate to bringing the practice of yoga to others. She is very grateful to be teaching a weekly drop in class at MokSana on Fridays at 6:00 pm and focuses on infusing “Yoga Joy” into each class that she teaches.

Foundations with Gentle Movement - Fridays 6-7pm

Please email Mar for further information and to register.

Over the years, I have been fortunate to learn from incredible teachers and mentors, who continue to inspire, and help shape my practice and teaching style. My classes are consistent, dynamic, and challenging. A practice that is designed to be difficult but doable for all levels of students with no major injuries. I strive to teach with skillful articulation, observation, and attention to alignment and breath to bring a group together in a safe and cohesive way.

Rachelle McElroy - RaRaBlissYoga@gmail.com

Teaching yoga is a deeply fulfilling pursuit for Rachelle, it is where she truly comes alive in her heart and out into the world. Rachelle’s students appreciate her deep heartfelt presence and class themes that move beyond the poses, guiding them into a process of self-illumination. Her slow-Hatha flow classes are an opportunity to renew breath, body, spirit, and heart.

 

Rachelle attended her first yoga class while studying at University. Being an active person Rachelle was not attracted to the slow nature of yoga, instead she sought the thrill of adrenaline sports. Once she paused long enough to take her first class, yoga allowed her to move beyond the doingness into her beingness; out of her mind and into her heart. Being a student of yoga for over 20 years has been a source of strength and self-compassion. Inspiration for her classes come from diverse sources, including: spiritual teachers and texts, practicing asanas, meditation, life hacks and the natural world. Rachelle completed her 250-hr teacher training at MokSana Yoga Centre in the winter of 2019. Since then she has taught Moksana’s community classes and at Casa Luz in La Manzanilla, Jalisco, Mexico. In addition to teaching yoga, Rachelle is a sessional instructor at the University of Victoria and Royal Roads, and is an environmental manager for Sellentin Habitat Restoration (SHR) and Invasive Species Consulting. Rachelle is overjoyed to join the Moksana team!
