Rachel Saxon

Program Director

Rachel originally came to yoga for the physical practice but found herself drawn to the slower, more therapeutic practices. Shortly after finishing her 200-hour Hatha Yoga training in 2013 at Chrysalis Yoga, she completed a Restorative Yoga Teacher Training with Andrea Peloso. The continual student, she took a day-long Yin Yoga workshop with Marla Ericksen at the Toronto Yoga Conference where she fell in love with the practice. Rachel has a science background with a B.Sc in Biochemistry where she learned how the body works on the molecular level. When she heard about Ayurveda, the sister science to yoga, she became intrigued and this interest led her to some workshops and eventually a Yin Yoga Teacher Training with Kathryn Flynn. Rachel fully believes in the internal benefits of yoga and decided to continue with more in-depth yoga training. She is currently working towards her 500-hour certification under Tiffany Cruikshank having taken the Myofascial Release and the Yin and Meditation trainings. Rachel is a registered instructor through the Yoga Alliance as an E-RYT200 and YACEP.

 

 

Michelle Compas

Program Director

Michelle grew up surrounded by deep spiritual roots, teachings and practices that exuded a mindful and contemplative lifestyle. Her fast-faced corporate career kicked off the quest to find the grounding and mindful disciplines that yoga and meditation offer. She completed her 200-hour Hatha Yoga training in 2013 at Sheridan College and has completed an additional 300 hours of training from the Kripalu lineage. These intensive studies focused on Meditation, Pranayama, Kripalu Vinyasa, Nadis & Granthis. The principles of Sukha (comfort) and Sthira (effort) are the root influence in Michelle’s teaching style and there are often reminders to students to connect to a mindful practice. She’s inspired by how small shifts make big changes and how slowing down offers a different perspective on almost everything. Some other studies she has completed include Yin Yoga (PranaShanti; Jashoda Edmunds, Brahmani Liebman), Restorative Yoga (Cyndi Lee), Thai Yoga Massage, Craniosacral Therapy, and Chinese Medicine. She is also a certified Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra® instructor, Meditation Teacher, and Usui Reiki Master. She looks forward to being a part of your yoga journey! Michelle is a registered instructor through the Yoga Alliance as an E-RYT200, RTY500, and YACEP.
