Drawing from her over 3000 hours of teaching, over 500 hours of yoga teacher training and her creative background as a classically trained actor, Trish is creating something new and exciting on the mat. In 1999 Trish began practicing yoga while attending the theatre-acting conservatory, at Ryerson University. She fell in LOVE with yoga in 2006, when she used it to heal herself from addiction and depression. Since then, Trish has studied yoga asana, philosophy (both tantric and classical), anatomy, therapeutics, meditation and pranayama with some of the world’s most inspiring teachers, including John Friend, Ana Forrest, Noah Maze, Tara Judelle, Michael Siddall, Seane Corn, Martin Kirk and Baron Baptiste.
Trish’s teaching style is unique, fluid and energetic! She weaves story telling, poetry, music, dance and theatre into her asana classes.
