Breathe True Yoga
The only journey is
the one within
Here at Breathe True Yoga, I believe that the most effective means of personal transformation is an experiential one. My mission is to help connect people to their deepest purpose in life. I do this by offering different modalities of spiritual and creative opportunities to help people tap into their passion and truth. Because each individual is unique, I feel it is necessary to provide many diverse approaches in my teachings and workshops.
Some of these modalities include chakra yoga, insight meditation, sacred sound, journey dance, yantra yoga (yogic astrology), and expressive arts. I also have my own line of unique and custom made essential oil blends for mind and body.
While most of my events take place in Guelph, Ontario, I also work as a guest presenter at various centres throughout Ontario. Occasionally I team up with other like-minded and skilled facilitators to co-create and present classes and workshops. Please check out my, “Workshops and Events” section for further details.
