Emily Kane Shares ~ When I started practicing yoga I was in high school and transitioning out of dance so I thought it’d be a good way to keep my flexibility. I was also really into sports like basketball and volleyball so I figured it could be a good way to cross-train. The whole “type A” athlete mentality made yoga tough for me at first. I remember one of my teachers mentioning to use a block and all I could think was “pssh… that’s for beginners.” Boy, how wrong I was!

Even over a decade later I still struggle with those perfectionist thoughts but they’ve settled down a lot. After high school I went on to complete a Bachelor of Kinesiology with the intention of going into physiotherapy; I loved the idea of helping people in a meaningful way. Yoga stuck with me throughout post-secondary and as the years went on I found myself getting stressed with the pressure of school. I finally hit a breaking point to realize I was sacrificing many of the things that I loved. I reflected on what was really important and how my career could be integrated into that lifestyle. This led me to pursue yoga teacher training and open a yoga studio in Whistler Village. I get to enjoy a life that inspires me whether it’s on or off-the-mat.

When I was offered the opportunity to teach students to become yoga teachers with Yogacara Global it seemed like a match made in heaven. I was so excited to share my perspectives and watch students make their own discoveries. I believe Yogacara Global embraces the deeper practice of yoga that goes beyond the physical practice. For me it’s important to be associated with a school that encourages students to live their yoga and embrace the values that are key to living consciously.

I loved her approach towards teaching the holistic portion as it included lots of discussion. She didn’t spoon feed us information and we were able to make discoveries on our own.
