Trish teaches our Saturday 9:30am "Hatha Flow" class. She has been practicing yoga since 1994 and teaching for the last 9 years. Her kind and gentle manner is suitable for students at all levels and abilities. Her teaching style offers clear instruction, with an emphasis on awareness of physical sensations, emotions and thoughts that arise throughout the practice.
In her teaching, Trish aims to cultivate non-judgmental awareness in the individual. She allows students to follow their own breath and modify postures to fit their bodies to allow for a deeper inquiry and connection within the self. In addition, she brings a rich understanding of therapeutics and a desire for each student to find ease into their own practice. “I believe that through the practice of yoga we can cultivate a greater generosity and awareness and in this process we uncover our own power. “I look towards nature and the cycles of life to be my greatest teacher as they have shown me the sweetness and bitterness of life all wrapped up into one grand opportunity to live.”
When the time called to teach, Trish travelled to India and received her first 200-hour certification from Yoga Vidya Gurukul. Wishing to help others in more ways, Trish was drawn to the teachings of Joseph & Lillian LePage of Integrative Yoga Therapy. With them, she completed a 1000-hour yoga therapy certification.
Currently, Trish is pursuing a Professional Trauma Certification through the Somatic Experiencing Trauma Institute.
