Why I love teaching: I love teaching yoga because I have witnessed over and over again: the calm reflection, determined focus, outpouring and inpouring of love, connection with others and oneself, inner strength and power, the remembering of what really matters and the bright sparkles in people’s eyes after a really sweaty Modo class.

What I love about Modo Yoga:  The people – our community. This community is the best! The respect and love we have for one another and our planet is going to change the world.

If I could give one piece of advice to new students, it would be: Pace yourself. Give about 60-70% of what you would normally do in the first few classes to get used to how your body functions in the heated environment.

My favourite quote: Governed by earth, her deep rooting can weather life and it’s stormy seasons, for she knows that with each setback, there always comes a rising. – Danielle Doby
