A yogi for over ten years, Helena completed her teacher training in January 2015, at Yyoga Teacher’s College in Vancouver. She chose Yyoga’s program for their focus on anatomy and sequencing. Originally from Vancouver, she has had the opportunity to practice a multitude of styles with many wonderful local and world-renown yoga teachers, including Ashtanga, Anusara™, Iyengar and Vijnana.
Helena endeavors to create an atmosphere of ease in her classes where students will feel comfortable being themselves. Her sequences offer students the opportunity to refine their movements, explore how the poses feel in their individual bodies and to play from a safe foundation. In her personal practice she looks forward to moments of unexpected joy and silliness and encourages her students to laugh. She is enthusiastic about the practice and welcomes students, potential students and fellow teachers to contact her with questions, comments or ideas.
