We are so excited. On Saturday April 11th we have TWO Guest teachers to give you an amazing movement experience. 

Introducing: Mara Richardson, who will creatively move you through transitions that connect you to body and spirit in Yoga Flow at 10 am, AND; Emily Love who will work your body hard but mindfully in Pilates Flow at 11:15am. 

Without further ado....

For Mara yoga, is a daily practice of surrendering to the power of now and honouring one's truth. Mara's teaching style is an artistic flow that inspires a curiosity about the body and invites an internal feeling of awakening. Mara believes in the value of slowing down, to cultivate strength and understanding. Students can expect to be given helpful alignment cues - that connects a line of communication between mind, body, and spirit. With a passion for dance and music, Mara teaches a slow pace flow with heart felt rhythm! 

Mara is a graduate of the 500 hour yoga teacher training, and 40 hour restorative teacher training  at Octopus Garden Holistic Yoga Studio. Mara's teachers are Pat Harada Linfoot, Scott Davis and Jesse Enright. Mara has mentored with Scott Davis and is currently mentoring with Pat Harada Linfoot. She is deeply grateful for their continuous gifts of knowledge, wisdom and support.

Emily is a life long athlete who started practicing Pilates after experiencing a back injury which led to chronic pain. Pilates changed the way she approached fitness, especially through the mind body connection it encourages. The detail and focus of Pilates not only challenge the body athletically, but encourage correct movement patterns to preventing and rehabilitate injuries. Emily also loves how it translates to every day life, and can especially help improve performance in so many sports like tennis, running, golf and cycling.

Certified in Mat Pilates from Body Harmonics, and TRX certified Emily loves to challenges her clients while encouraging technique and body awareness.
