Karin Charuz

[su_expand more_text=”Read More” link_color=”#13c0d5″]I have been practicing Yoga since 1999 and teaching since 2006. In 2003 I traveled to India, I practiced and learned from various teachers. Coming back to Toronto in 2004 I kept exploring the different styles of Yoga and was fascinated by the step-by-step of self-discovery, growth and total transformation that took place on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level, I then decided it is time to share my insights and love for Yoga with the world. I am a certified Yoga therapist, a senior instructor certified in classical Hatha, and a YTT program director. My class focus is on staying connected to the inner self with emphasis on breathing, body and mind awareness, strength, improved posture, functionality and mobility, balance and inner peace. I believe that the practice can be adaptable to suit every-body when attending the specific needs of the individual and I encourages students to listen to their bodies and work in a way that feels safe to them.

Ben Huang

[su_expand more_text=”Read More” link_color=”#13c0d5″]In the busy and fast paced world we live in today, how often do we have time to ourselves? How often do we pause and fully commit to bringing out the best version of ourselves? At the studio is where Ben finds himself the most alive. As a former owner of Hot Yoga Markham, a part of his heart will always remain here. With an extensive kinesiology background, Ben’s teaching style is quite interesting. He blends art with science through the integration of modern functional movements while preserving the traditional vinyasa flow. This unique teaching methodology acts as the main catalyst to condition the body, thus fortifying the strength and flexibility necessary in building a strong yoga foundation. Ben believes yoga is more than just doing poses on your mat. Instead, it is a way of living; adding purpose and awareness to your breath, movement, and ultimately your life. Although considered to be well respected teacher, Ben humbly defines himself as forever a student in life. [/su_expand]

Elysie C. Baldassarra

[su_expand more_text=”Read More” link_color=”#13c0d5″]I graduated from University of Waterloo with an Honours Bachelor of Science Degree in Biomedical Sciences, with specializations in areas of biology and psychology. From there, I attained my Doctor of Chiropractic degree from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College with clinical honours. I believe continuing education is fundamental to life-long learning, completing my Masters Degree in Rehabilitation Sciences. Sharing my passion for teaching, yoga and wellness has been an integral part of my life. As a chiropractor, I look for natural, evidenced based methods to assist my patients and students in leading pain-free lives. As a certified yoga instructor, I work to create both passion and growth in my students, helping them to enjoy both the physical and mental benefits of practice. Practical knowledge of the working human body, and the ability to share that knowledge with your students in meaningful ways is an integral part of yoga teacher training. I am delighted to have the opportunity to bring the awareness of both yoga and anatomy to the teacher training program. I believe a more in depth and comprehensive understanding of the human body will enhance your teaching, protect your students and deepen your own personal practice. My passion lies with spreading knowledge in dynamic, and engaging ways. I love watching confidence and optimism about the future grow in my students’ eyes. [/su_expand]
