Trish teaches public yoga classes in Banff, AB

banff yoga class

I teach yoga for real life. If yoga is a calm and steady mind, then the real yoga is discovered in the face of challenge. Challenge on our mats, and challenge in everyday life.


My passion is teaching students to find the seatedness of their mind on the mat in a challenging posture, so they can find the same calm and steadiness in an argument with their spouse, in bumper to bumper traffic, in times of heartache and in the chaos that can be real, messy, imperfect life.

My classes take yoga seriously, but encourage us not to take ourselves too seriously. They are infused with soul-stoking beats, sweaty vinyasa, inspiring quotes and time to breathe, sit and let it all sink in.

“The power is in you. the answer is in you. And you are the answer to all of your searches: you are the goal. You are the answer. It is never outside.” – Eckhart Tolle
