Originally from East Vancouver, Richelle found yoga during a difficult time in her life and dedicates her teachings, schooling and offerings to provide support and education for herself and others through the abilities of this practice. Along with becoming a certified yoga teacher, she has additional training in Yin Yoga and Trauma-Sensitive Yoga. She has also completed her 300hour training in Yoga Therapy and is on the path of becoming a certified Yoga Therapist. Her compassionate energy encourages students to free themselves of external expectations and honor the needs of their body in each moment. When she’s not on her mat you can find her hiking, spending time with friends or curling up in a cozy chair geeking out on health and wellness books, blogs or podcasts. Richelle is extremely grateful to have the opportunity to teach, but more importantly, to forever and always be a student.
