Angie Delainey

Position: Certified Pre-Natal & Yoga Instructor/ Owner Operator

Biography: Angie has completed her 200 Yoga Teacher Training in May 2011 through Yandara Yoga Institute in Todas Santos Mexico. Her teacher training was dedicated to learning the art of Vinyasa Flow. Vinyasa’s strength is in its diversity. There is no single philosophy, rulebook, or sequence that teachers must follow, so there is a lot of room for individual personalities and quirks to come through. If you enjoy having things a little loose and unpredictable and like to move, Vinyasa is probably right for you.

Angie discovered Yoga through illness. In 2006 she was diagnosed with Acute Rheumatoid Arthritis. After a 2 year battle with medications, a stay at GF Strong Rehabilitation Centre, and a lymph node removed from her underarm, Angie has found that balancing her life through alternative healing modalities such as Yoga and acupuncture she no longer takes medication and has been pain free for 9 years.

Angie continues to educate herself through on line study with Sadie Nardini, has taken Yin Teacher Training and is a Trauma Informed Yoga Instructor.  Angie uses the practice of Yoga to help her function as a mother, business owner, friend and team leader, and believes that no matter if you are on or off your mat, Yoga is there for you to help guide you into your best self through continuous self study.    “In the face of emotionally challenging situations this practice has given me the ability to step back from what is triggering and breathe instead of just reacting” ~ Angie
