Jonni-Lyn Friel has been teaching Yoga since 2006 and is a E-RYT-500, E-RYT 200, RPYT and Jivamukti teacher who recently returned to Canada ,after many years of living in Athens Greece. She is pleased to call Victoria , B.C home and looks forward to exploring how life will unfold here.She first was exposed to Yoga as a child in Canada through her first teachers, her parents, and joined in their practice by watching and following along. Yoga was always a self practice that took her through years of competitive swimming, University and backpacking around the world. In 1999, she stepped into her first Yoga class and discovered the joys of having a teacher and being taught from another person's experience and knowledge. In 2006 she completed her first teacher training in Athens, Greece. With a strong background in alignment and Anusara, she began to explore the world of Vinyasa, completing a teacher training with her wonderful teacher Rusty Wells. In 2013 she completed the 300 hour Jivamukti Yoga teacher training in Costa Rica and found new teachers in Sharon Gannon and David Life. Now a 500 hour RYT, she has taught numerous 200 and 500 hour trainings, where her love is to share the Bhagavad Gita and to teach service and compassion as a way to happiness and self realization. In 2016 she founded Namaha Yoga School, a collective of teachers from around the world from different traditions who share the common belief that teaching Yoga is a path of Seva, or service. Jonni-Lyn knows Yoga to be sacred, healing and powerful. This is how it has affected her life and spirit. Her greatest joy is to share her knowledge and pass on the teachings of her beloved teachers to others, in hope that it serves them in their lives.
