“Not just yoga on the mat, but especially yoga off the mat”

“Not just yoga on the mat, but especially yoga off the mat”. Listen as Elizabeth tells how she took the lessons from her experience at the Victoria Yoga Conference, and turned those lessons into further questions, research, and findings off the mat.

Elizabeth McIntyre– 2020 VYC Ambassador – Nanaimo

Elizabeth has been studying Yoga since 2007. She has had the great privilege of guiding classes and workshops for a range of different folks, and the unparalleled joy of pioneering the Young Yogis Summer Camp at her home studio, Oxygen Yoga & Fitness Nanaimo. Her practice is intersectional, inclusive, and body positive; she utilizes trauma informed teaching practices and strives to reify a culture of consent (Ahimsa), especially in bringing yoga to kids!  Elizabeth received her practical Yoga training in “Traditional Hatha Asana, Pranayama, Meditation and Yogic Philosophy” at Ayur Yoga Eco Ashram in Karnataka, India. She has also studied Teaching Yoga to Children with Jacqueline Maloney more recently at Semperviva in Vancouver.
