Syd felt a soul connection to the practice of yoga ever since taking a flow class in their early 20s. Yoga-inspired them to break from social expectations and confinements, and instead move their body freely and intuitively. Syd fell in love with the practice and took on teacher training in 2016 to support folks struggling with body image and eating disorder recovery on a path of healing and acceptance.

Syd has since completed their RYT500 and E-RYT200 with Ashram Yoga, New Zealand, and has embraced continued education, studying under numerous brilliant teachers from varying philosophies.

Over the years, Syd’s personal practice has transformed into a radical act of self-love and full mind, body, and soul liberation. Their current practice focuses on cultivating inner peace as a means to achieve greater oneness with self and community and create the building blocks for a more beautiful and just society.

Syd’s teaching style incorporates joy, body positivity, inner stillness, and radical acceptance for any and all humans. In their classes, you will be called to honour the roots of yoga, while simultaneously embracing creativity in movement and breath in order to engage more intuitively with your body and mind. You can expect a dynamic balance between flowing freely into shapes and softening into stillness to help support you in coping with and integrating the personal, political, and spiritual elements of the world around you. Join Syd for a deep, eccentric, and meaningful yoga practice.
