Aaliya is a 500HR certified Vancouver based yoga instructor. Having studied in the birth place of yoga, India- Aaliya’s classes integrate traditional foundations of physical asana, pranayama (breath work), yoga philosophy and mantra (chanting) meditation with a present day approach to philosophy and practice that provides students with a whole and integrative experience.
Aaliya has taught yoga in North America, Europe, Africa and Asia and has found an approach to teaching yoga that is accessible and informative to practitioners of all backgrounds and level of experience. Yoga has strengthened her connection to self by finding a balanced practice of patient discipline and experiencing playfulness through the union of breath and movement. Traditional philosophy, mythology and mantra are the heart of her practice. The mythological stories and classical teachings offer a gateway to the universal experiences of what it means to be human.
These practices provide wisdom that connect her to her ancestral roots and our innate expansive capacity. Ancient chants that still the mind and leave a permeating vibrational shift within us. It is with this passion for the ‘yuj’ (union) of all parts of what the practice truly provides that she shares with her students.
What can students expect from your class? A practice which is playful, integrative and influenced by tradition
