Yin on the Ridge Welcomes You
Breathe, yield, allow and nourish
Located on Deer Ridge just above beautiful Christina Lake, my vision is to have small sized classes for a personalised experience usually only found in private sessions but in a community setting at an affordable rate. I’ve been studying and practising yoga and the philosophies as a Yoga Instructor since 2014. Today, I am grateful to share with you what I have learned. Welcome
Designed For You
Yin is a slow, soothing, and meditative style of yoga that targets your deep connective tissues, bones, joints, fascia and ligaments.
In Yin Yoga, we hold mostly passive poses for anywhere from 3 to 5 minutes to work into connective tissues.
Yin leads beautifully to one of the least known and underappreciated practices of yoga known as Yoga Nidra. Yoga Nidra is composed of a series of breath, body and awareness practices that help move you into progressive states of relaxation - of non-doing. It is said that 45 minutes of Yoga Nidra is as restorative as 3 hours of sleep. A practice to help you sleep better, neutraliser excess stress, restore peace, relaxation and rejuvenation.
You can expect slow, deep stretches and meditation that help balance and strengthen your body, mind and spirit.

Lead me from the unreal to the real
Lead me from darkness to light
Lead me from time- bound consciousness
to the timeless state of being that I am
Small class size allows for a rich, personalised experiences of Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra. A range of quality props are available for modifications and support to allow your body to gently open. Cultivate your inner awareness as you calm your mind and nervous system and focus on your breath. These may be subtle practices but their benefits are profound.
Classes have a maximum of 6 students.
“Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes, including you.”
About Me (Registered Yoga Teacher 150236)
As a forever student, I believe in living a life free of judgement, filled with joy and gratitude. These feelings inform and guide my studentship which is focused on helping you better connect to yourself and your surroundings. Book a class and take time to decompress. Relieve stress, reduce anxiety and face challenges and joys with steadiness and grace.
