Vinyasa Yoga Instructor
I began to practice yoga after enduring a serious concussion from a skiing accident, and was unable to exercise my body or mind for several months. On my path to recovery, I began to heal through gentle meditation sessions, and eventually found the practice of yoga at Bliss OM to be essential to my health and well-being. Discovering the many benefits yoga provides body, mind, and soul, I felt compelled to register for Bliss OM’s inaugural Yoga Teacher Training program, and am now a proud graduate of the 2015-2016, 200 hour YTT course of study. I’ve come to appreciate and be grateful for the restorative powers of yoga, and am excited to be able to share this wonderful practice with others in such a beautiful space, on our journey to health and self-discovery.

Vinyasa Yoga Instructor
I fell in love with yoga the first day I stepped onto my mat. Yoga has been a very important part of my life. It is where you can find your inner peace and be in a state of complete happiness, where you leave all negativity aside. I have been practicing for over 8 years and have fallen in love with this practice. I have had the fortune of training with some outstanding teachers. I have completed 250 hours with downward dog under the guidance of renowned teachers Ron Marla Diane and David. I believe in this practice you never stop learning that is why I continue to take workshops and further my knowledge of yoga. I try to share my love for yoga with all of my students. I feel that when you really love what you do your students will feed off of that positive energy and at the same time a teacher learns so much from every student. I try to live my life the same way I spend it on the mat, with love, patience and acceptance.

I have been practicing yoga for over 11 years and have been dedicated to my practice ever since. I decided to become a yoga teacher so I could share my love and passion of yoga with others.

I studied the anatomy, psychology and philosophy of yoga to deepen and understand the meaning of yoga. I am currently teaching many levels of yoga as well as meditation and pilates. I am also counselling children and adults of all ages as well as integrating the yoga.
Yoga has transformed my life and I know the amazing benefits of yoga and how important it is to implant this message to children and adults.
Restorative Yoga & Meditation Instructor
Hi, I’m Patti. Yoga has been a part of my life for the last 20 years or so. I would find myself always coming back to my mat at the most challenging times in my life. It has helped ground me, and to give me the peace that I seek. Through the years, I have been active with various types of physicality including crossfit, as well being in the military. About 12 years ago, I was diagnosed with lupus. As my physical abilities have changed, I found myself reuniting with my mat. Yoga allows me the freedom to explore my physical abilities at my own pace and free of judgement.
I am so excited to embark on this new journey. I welcome all to attend my classes as my space is open and free of judgement. My goal is to create a class where one finds the solace that he or she desires and is able to make the connection with their body, mind and soul.
Yoga and Fitness Enthusiast
I have been a Yoga and fitness enthusiast since the days of leg warmers. If you were not around then, that would be around the mid 1970’s. The concept of a Holistic lifestyle became a strong motivating force and guided my journey towards the awareness of the benefits in achieving a healthy, balanced physical, mental, emotional and spiritual state of well-being. In the late nineties I decided to get the necessary education to become a fitness leader and completed a 2 year Fitness Leadership Program at Humber College. That only fueled my confidence and desire to explore the world of fitness and its’ many facets. I went on to receive my 1st and 2nd Degree Black Belts in Shotokan Karate and taught a Women’s Kickboxing program for approx 15 years. I introduced a Pilates and Yoga practice to balance the program and have been teaching these forms of discipline ever since. My passion and overall experience, allows me to offer a unique and effective practice that I love to share with others. The benefits of a consistent practice soon reflect on the many aspects of our lives. Allowing each and every one of us the opportunity to contribute towards a happier and healthier world, one posture at a time
