CINDYLAGON

Haven Yoga Teacher

 

"My yoga practice and philosophy is to focus on the breath, be kind to yourself and connect to your body. As a teacher I encourage my students to focus on these points and find the joy in their practice.

 

Yoga is super fun and super challenging, for me it has always been a journey of self discovery."

 

aNNAHEARN

Haven Founder, Yogi,

Health-At-Every-Size & Non-Diet Personal Trainer

& 'Body Respect' Cheerleader

"At the heart of my approach is body respect and self-compassion and I share this with my clients from a place of integrity and personal experience.

 

It's my belief and experience that shame and punishment aren't helpful in establishing a peaceful and sustainable relationship with food, body and movement. I gently encourage and guide members to explore life with a focus on self-care, not self-control."

Special Interests

Supporting clients working on their relationship with food and body image through compassionate listening and peer support.

Favourite way to self-care

Spending hours on foot in the mountains.

LEE

Haven Yoga Teacher

"I believe that yoga has something to offer everyone, and I have experienced first hand emotional and physical well being that is possible through the practice of yoga.

 

I am of the mindset that a regular yoga practice encourages positive and life affirming change - offering vitality, equanimity and improved flexibility in life; even after you roll up your mat! 

Through my classes I strive to create a welcoming, inclusive space for people from all walks of life to connect with others in a supportive, like minded environment."
