Pierina Fadi

I was brought to my first Hatha yoga class many years ago (initially for lower back pain) and quickly realized the many benefits that it provided the mind, body and spirit connection.  I was hooked ever since! At that point I realized that my life path was leading me to become a yoga teacher. (After completing a Bachelors of Education, I never felt ‘quite right’ with what the education system provided students and felt that there was something missing in the curriculum that did not encourage the mind, body and spirit connection). My passion for philosophy and spirituality lead me to write a thesis called Education For Connection; Beyond Linear Learning and I earned a Masters Degree from McGill university in 2003. After graduating from the Moksha Yoga Teacher Training program in 2004, I realized that teaching yoga was a way of expressing myself “thesis in action”. Since then, I have studied with a few highly accredited teachers including John Friend, Judith Lasater, David Life, Michael Stone, and Frank Boccio and many others. With my passion for learning and teaching, I went on to complete Moksha Yoga Teacher Training Level 2 and Yin yoga in 2007, and studied Anusara Yoga from 2012-13. I also became interested in the more subtle forms of the yoga practice by completing Yin level 2 in 2015, and Yoga Nidra (know as Yoga of Divine sleep) level 1 & 2 in winter of 2016.

My classes integrate my knowledge of Hatha, Yin, Pranayama and Yoga Nida, with the essential knowledge of the yoga practice.  I focus on integrity of alignment, and the ability to move smoothly with breath.I love teaching yoga and truly feel honored to guide students in their own yoga practice.

I started practicing yoga 6 years ago for stress and anxiety but it was not until I was volunteering at a holistic cat rescue in Florida that I was truly inspired by the healing energy of Reiki & Mind, Body & Soul Yoga. My first yoga for anxiety class made me feel calmer and it inspired me to do more yoga. Within a year I found myself ready to go deeper into the philosophy of yoga and practice Ayurveda.  I feel freer from anxiety and I am able to stop and breath when I feel stress coming on. Yoga truly changed my journey. I have a love for the beautiful beaches of Florida, healing, reading, traveling, music, cats and Reiki.

Thai Yoga Massage & Meditation – May 25th

 

Thai Massage can be traced back over 2500 years to India and spread with Buddhism to other parts of Asia. It is a synthesis of yoga, Ayurveda, and massage. Done on the floor in comfortable clothing, it incorporates assisted stretching similar to Hatha yoga and working acupressure points. It is stimulating both physically and energetically, giving benefits to both recipient and practitioner alike!

It can be an excellent tool for yoga teachers looking to become more comfortable giving assists, for anyone looking to deepen their knowledge and practice of yoga or massage, or for couples and friends just looking to have some fun and try something new!

This workshop will provide an overview of Thai yoga massage, with a guided stretch routine/massage of one hour, and some basic understanding of acupuncture(pressure) points on the arms and legs. Be prepared to get close, get a little exercise and a few laughs.

Marie did her Thai massage training in Chaing Mai, Thailand in 2004 and has been incorporating it into her massage practice in Edmonton ever since.
