When I teach Yoga I want people to experience yoga as a way of life, learning how to balance mind, body and soul in order to have a more fulfilling life. I use Yoga as the aid of mental and physical exercises to become aware of our true divine self by emphasizing the importance of the mind remaining calm, because as the saying goes, only when the water is still can you see through it.

Yoga is for EVERYBODY. Give a chance for yoga to transform your day into helping you to feel "yoga good" (as Anna says). I teach what I feel comes out of my spirit and my heart. I teach with spontanaety. I feel the energy of the class and go with it. Every class I teach humbles me by giving me more knowledge and experience. It doesn't matter if I'm teaching a beginner, advanced practitioner, a child or senior citizen, I know that they are all equal and all have something to teach me.
I teach my students to allow grace and joy into their lives through their yoga practice.

As a teacher of art and yoga, I enjoy using my creativity, a sense of playfulness, and a focus on relaxation to guide practice. Yoga is for everyone, not just for the flexible! We are all individuals and our yoga practice allows us to tune in with that individuality. It is essential to me, that my students feel comfortable and are having an enjoyable time in class. Life can be stressful and painful, but practicing yoga can bring us the relaxation and joy we seek in our lives. I hope to see you on the mat in the future! Namaste.

My yoga mat has become a security blanket to me: it is a safe place to honor myself, nourish my inner strength, and free myself from doubts. I started yoga because it was the only non-competitive form of exercise that I truly could enjoy, and now yoga continually inspires me to feel strong, healthy, and flexible in my daily life as well as on the mat.

Yoga can be and is whatever you need it to be. It's so flexible of a practice that you never feel excluded due to religious affiliation or your social group. It can be a great refuge for those seeking social/emotional/mental shelter/support, and it can be a great workout. It truly connects your mind and body. For me, it's a beautiful place I can go to whenever I need my mind to stop racing, my heart to heal, and my body to strengthen.

"Visiting Davannayoga instructors are welcome to guest teach~"

Teaches-Philosophy

When I started yoga, like many people, thought it was just about being flexible and the pursuit of poses. I immediately realized that yoga was much more, but I still didn’t yet know what "the much more" really was. So I practiced sporadically for many years, always loving how I felt after yoga, but for some unknown reason, never committing to the practice on a more intense or regular level. After incurring a fairly serious back injury, I was inspired to find ways to learn and explore ways to incorporate mind, energy, and positive thinking into the healing process. This led me back to yoga with a completely new awareness. Physically, while of course yoga helps with flexibility and strengthens our bodies, in my classes I emphasize more the aspects of yoga that bring us balance, connectedness, patience and awareness to our bodies and mind to allow for amazing energy to flow through both.

I have been practicing yoga on and off for as long as I remember, starting with imitating my mother as a small child while she practiced every morning.

I kept my practice intermittently through many moves and changes in my life and I came to realize that yoga was the only physical activity I was practicing that gave me that something extra, that feeling of joy and peace and wholeness. This led me to complete my teacher training in the Vinyasa Flow style with the inspiring Anna Laurita at Davannayoga. I can't wait to share my love of yoga and the transformation it can bring.

Yoga is a path by which to heal oneself. I believe we take from it what we need at the moment, whether that be physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual guidance. The blissful feeling after yoga practice reflects a connection with our true selves, like briefly rejoining a clear path through the tangled forest of life. What freedom there is in that!

Teaches-Philosophy

Yoga to me is love. My goal is to reflect that as much as possible through my classes and my own practice. My long love for exploring how the body moves and the shapes it makes led me to completing a degree in kinesiology at UBC. I try to bring this physical awareness into my classes through a strong and sweaty asana practice, focusing on alignment. After years of competing in high performance sports and studying the body from such a physical perspective, I found yoga as a refuge to “just be,” and start experiencing the other beautiful qualities of mind, body, spirit and emotion that the body also holds. I like my classes to be fun and playful, sharing a space where everyone laughs, cries, breathes and LOVES as one.

Willis believes that yoga is life and life is yoga and feels that you can learn a lot about yourself and others by regularly coming to your mat, thus contributing to the greater good via awareness, compassion, patience…the list goes on. His teaching style is fun and creative with great focus on the movement/breath connection. To Willis, transitions can be just as important as the postures, so prepare to feel the beauty in the “in betweens”—for life is about the journey and not the destination. Come flow, feel, and go deeper into your own yoga practice in a supportive environment with some rockin’ jams and an inspirational vibe. hootie-hoo!!!!!!!!

"Yoga is not exercise; it is an exploration." BKS Iyengar

My philosophy is to teach the essence of yoga through conscious breath and correct alignment, while also guiding students to feel comfortable and steadiness in each asana. Through the practice of yoga, students will explore the self, both physically and with the mind. The benefit of yoga is about the lifelong journey within each person, step by step in their own practice.

Yoga meets us where we are; without judgment. Bringing this simple concept to our practice will enable the embodiment of Ramaswari's four parameters of yoga steadiness, comfort, smoothness of breath and unwavering focus on breath. With steadiness and comfort brings lightness and awareness in the body an spirit. A practice like this, that nurtures and supports the individual, will build a stronger whole.
