Hanna discovered her dedication to yoga in 2009; practice became her center point amidst a busy life as the mother of 3 beautiful children. After the birth of her 3rd child, Hanna decided to delve deep into the study of yoga through a 3-year, 800 hour yoga apprenticeship with teacher Cathy Valentine. This was completed with a Vijnana Yoga International teacher’s certification with Orit Sen-Gupta in 2016.
Inspired by life and practice, Hanna brings playful inquiry to her classes, encouraging her students to practice from inside, while exploring the principals of quieting the mind, relaxing the body, breathing, rooting, connecting, expanding and intent. All of her classes include a short meditation and pranayama, with a different asana focus each week. Hanna has been teaching weekly classes at the Salt Spring Center since 2015.
