Yin Sequences in Squamish

What a sweet joy to host this training in Squamish at North Yoga. For a place so close to Vancouver, I haven’t spent much time there at all! The wind is medicine, the food is amazing, the cafes are are filled with sweet people and I have a handful of hardworking, yin loving friends there. Giving thanks for invitations to share what I love with people and that these great teaching invites make for wonderful adventures and beautiful insights. I am currently booking some winter dates and summer 2017, so please get in touch if you would like to organize a yin training near you.
