Colleen Wrighte is a Yoga Alliance certified teacher, based in Ottawa, Canada. She has studied Akhanda Yoga and completed her Teacher Training under the inspirational guidance of Yogi Vishvketu. Colleen also received her Restorative Yoga Certification with Judith Lasater, Pre and Post Natal Yoga Training and she continues to expand her teaching skills in the advanced level Yoga Teacher Training at the Kripalu Centre for Yoga & Health.
Colleen brings a holistic approach to her Yoga teaching after experiencing for herself the transformational and healing benefits of a regular Yoga practice. Before becoming a teacher she attended many years of classes and Yoga based retreats, knowing instinctively that she needed this in her busy life. Yoga teaches you the skills to care for your body, mind and soul and to be pro active toward wellness. Colleen has been happy to share this wisdom with her husband, three grown children and wonderful students. Her teaching integrates the Yogic principals of breath, movement, alignment, balance and relaxation. She stresses the importance of connecting with the inner self by cultivating stillness of the mind. Colleen has discovered that Yoga reliably increases life force energy or "prana" and she is honoured to share this practice with her students.
