Name? Steve Daw
Hometown? Spent the last 13 years in the north: Cape Dorset, Normal Wells & Yellowknife. Moving in May to New Chelsea, Trinity Bay, NL
Months/years practicing yoga? 3 years from 2000-2003 in St John’s. Restarted practice in 2014 in Yellowknife.
Favourite class offered at Taiga? I’m thoroughly enjoying all my classes. They each have their own unique benefits and pleasures.
What is your favourite yoga posture and why?
Active: Downward Facing Dog (as part of a Sun Salutation). It’s an active pose that uses most muscles, yet can also be a resting pose.
Sitting: Easy pose - for meditating.
What are you working on in your practice? I’m working on developing a consistent home practice, because there are no yoga studios reasonably close to where I’m moving. I also intend to continue my formal training wherever practical and available. I was certified with a 200 hour RYT “Hatha Based” and Level II Reiki practitioner at a 26-day yoga teacher training program at Yandara, in Baja, Mexico, Nov/Dec 2015. I’m currently enrolled in a 40 hour Restorative Yoga training program in Yellowknife, and I’m registered to attend a 2-day “Spine Immersion” workshop in June, and a 3-day “Nidra” training workshop in November, both in St John’s, NL.
