A student first.
Registered Physiotherapist, Experienced Yoga Teacher (Over 1000hrs)
Tash has been a student of yoga since 2005, and a student of movement since long before.
After obtaining her Masters of Science in Physiotherapy through Dalhousie University in Halifax, NS, she enrolled in her first teacher training with Moksha Yoga International (Ted Grand and Jess Robertson) in 2012. One year later she dived into the art and science of teaching vinyasa yoga with One Yoga (Ryan Leier). She has been teaching regularly ever since, and continues to study and explore the many facets and applications of yoga. Her classes are infused with her knowledge of the human body, intentional sequencing, and a playful intensity that will challenge students to grow, while grounding them where they are. She is dedicated to ongoing personal and professional development, as well as community involvement. A lover of all things human-powered and outside, you can find her mountain biking, trail running, snowboarding/splitboarding, or climbing when not on her mat.
Ask her about whole foods and pottery, her other passions :)
Grateful for this path and the privileges it has provided, NP MOVEMENT is her humble attempt to pay it forward.
