For the past year I have been teaching Yoga Tune Up® to the athletes that train at Elite Training (ETS), the Whitby Fury, and the Whitby Minor Hockey Association. My goal is to create an understanding of what is happening in the body. Learning "functional, safe, relevant ways to allow the athletes to find their body blind spots, understand the web that is fascia, learn how to eradicate pain, enhance their performance and improve their posture by learning the art of fascial tissue release and self massage. The YTU Therapy balls allow me to do this.
"I started as a beginner about 4 years ago. Yvonne was welcoming, open to any and all feedback and, most importantly, patient with my lack of yoga expertise. She has coached me, corrected me (only positively!), encouraged me and believed in me since our first class and because of that, I am dedicated to my yoga practice and the benefits of yoga. Although I have tried other studios, classes and teachers, I won't stray from my comfort zone of Sola Yoga. Yvonne has a great inner peace that radiates throughout the class both when we are working hard as well as when we are quietly ending our class. I appreciate her knowledge and commitment to each one of us individually as that customizes the experience for everyone. She pushes us but only to each person's individual limit; a sign of a true teacher".

"Like many people, I came to yoga purely for physical reasons. But as my relationship to the poses has evolved, so has my passion for the practice, thanks to your incredible teachings Yvonne. Your classes are well thought out, clearly delivered, dynamic and interesting. Your detailed instruction is so effective and assist me to achieve the best possible posture available to me. I love your unique blend of traditional yoga combined with Yoga Tune Up work. Your passion for the anatomy along with how you make the connection to our everyday life movements is wonderful and make classes memorable and enjoyable. As a newbie to yoga, it is a privilege to be one of your students and I am grateful to have the opportunity to practice under your extraordinary leadership. Many many thanks for all you do for us!"
"They say if you love what you do, then you never work a day in your life." This statement holds true for Yvonne as it is always apparent in her classes just how much she loves teaching yoga. Not only does she teach yoga to her students, but she always spends the time helping to perfect each student's poses to alleviate any chance of injury. Her enthusiasm for yoga never goes unnoticed or unappreciated and she is a real pleasure to learn from!
"Being one of the first (after Kathy & Alanna) students of Yvonne's it is with heavy heart to say goodbye to her and her yoga classes. She is one the most passionate people we well ever know especially when it comes to her teaching. Not only does Yvonne want you to learn the poses but she wants you to learn them correctly so you get the most out of her classes. She has taught us about our body, how it works and how yoga has made us stronger while our muscles get longer and leaner for our future. I wish you and Greg a great new adventure in AZ" - Namaste.
