We are pleased to introduce Anne Parsonage. After 3 years of living and studying in India in the early 90’s, she completed her yoga teacher training in Austria in 1993 under the guidance of the graceful working holy soul of German spiritual teacher Heinz Grill. Since then, she has been traveling back and forth between Toronto and India, living, studying, and teaching Yoga From The Heart Canada in both places (including 3 different ashrams in India over the years). This active Spirit-based yoga combines the ancient wisdom of the East with the practical down-to-earth approach of the West. It is a devotional expression of inner awareness.
Although the classes are active and challenging, nevertheless, the essence of this yoga is gentleness and ease of movement, with none of the competitiveness which can often turn yoga into merely a physical exercise. It develops a new sensitivity and brings an inner peace which helps one to cope with the hectic lifestyle most of us find ourselves living. For more information on this artistic and sensitive approach to yoga, please visit the yoga description page of the Yoga from the Heart Canada website.
