Hatha Flow

This class is taught by:

Emilie Tobin

Thirteen years ago, Emilie walked into her first yoga class at the original Upward Dog Yoga located on Mackay Street. She was looking for a new pastime amidst a time of significant change and quickly fell in love with the physical part of yoga. It took a decade of consistent practice for Emilie to accept and embrace that yoga is so much more than the physical body. Yoga has allowed this mind-racing extrovert to pause, reflect and find grounding both on and off the mat.

Emilie completed her 200 hour Hatha Teacher Training in July 2015 and has been teaching ever since. She originally enrolled for teacher training as a way of deepening her own practice, but the minute she sat in her teacher’s seat, she felt a true sense of belonging.

Emilie has a true passion for teaching and takes great joy watching her students grow and flourish. She is excited to be joining the Upward Dog team as her yoga journey has come full circle!

Cassie Love

Cassie Love was blessed by being introduced to yoga at a young age; she has been embracing a yoga practice for more than twenty years as a core part of her life. This practice solidified her interest and eventually motivated her to become a certified instructor.

Cassie sees her yoga practice as an excellent avenue to share wellness tools. As part of Cassie’s wellness education she also studied with a Shaman (U.S. Virgin Islands, 2008), lived at a mediation centre (Tuscany, Italy, 2007), and finally, earning her Honors BA in Psychology and Women’s studies at Ottawa University (2015).

Cassie is honored to participate in the yoga community. Her teaching style is aimed at empowering the individual with clarity and techniques to strengthen the body mind spirit. Cassie teaches Power, Hatha, Hot, Yin, and Restorative yoga. She also leads meditations and presents art workshops.

Hatha Flow: a class that encourages movement from one posture to another in a continuous sequence linked together by the breath. The sequencing includes an eclectic mix of standing, balancing and floor poses designed to help improve flexibility, strength and stamina, while also providing the opportunity to cultivate a quiet mind. Modifications are provided for postures to make this class accessible to all levels.
