Paola was awakened by the profound experience of body, mind, and breath awareness when she first discovered yoga 13 years ago. The stillness and peace she found within are what she believes to be the primary benefits of yoga. Paola has since studied with Gaiatri Yoga, completing their 200 hour teacher training program, completed 100 hours of adjuster training and assisted in over 200 hours of classes at The Bodhi Tree Yoga Centre in Calgary, and is currently finishing a 300 hour program with Yoga Therapy and Bodywork in the system of Critical Alignment Yoga and Therapy.

Paola, a mother of two (ages 4 and 10), home schools her daughters and tutors students in Spanish. She adores her time with kids, forever inspired by their natural energy, joy, curiosity, and fresh view of the world. She believes they have an innate confidence in themselves, a deep connection to nature, and are able to stay present in the moment. Her role as a teacher is to nurture these traits so kids remember them as they grow up.
