Teaching Training FacultyBreathe is recognized by the Ontario Government as an official training institute. Breathe Yoga Teacher Training Tuition fees are therefore tax deductible.
Students will benefit from the teachings and close guidance of senior yoga teachers, Christine Felstead, Laurie Campbell and Scott Petrie who together have over 30 years of teaching experience.
Laurie has been teaching yoga for over 12 years and has been with Breathe Yoga Studio for 7 of those years. She credits her success as a teacher to her own teacher Ron Reid.
While studying she practiced and later taught traditional ashtanga yoga right up to advanced series B, today she teaches a mixed style of vinyasa yoga. She endeavours to honor her roots in ashtanga yoga but weaves in her love of movement and sequencing. Her wish is to communicate that the essence of this practice is not felt solely on your mat as your body opens but the rewards of this practice are felt deeply in the heart when our minds begin to open. As a senior teacher, Laurie is the Founding Director of Breathe Yoga’s training program, leads international retreats and teaches at international conferences.
Christine started her yoga journey in 1996, with one class a week and primarily motivated to improve her slumping posture. She has successfully married her twin passions for yoga and running by pioneering the development of Yoga for Runners and today is the leading authority on the practice.
While Christine embraces the 8 limbs of yoga, she is keenly interested in the anti-aging effects of yoga – that is using yoga to maintain a strong and supple body and mind! Her classes integrate alignment principles with fun and challenging vinyasa sequences. Christine continues to evolve as a teacher primarily through the experience of her own practice and witnessing the effects of the practice on her students.
