Beatrix (aka Trixie by her students) a yoga practitioner for almost 30 years and an instructor for over 12 years, has been making a big difference in people's lives and spinal health when she first developed and launched Suspension Yoga in Canada.
She received her extensive yogic training from extraordinary masters in India and holds certification in Ashtanga Yoga, Yoga Therapy, Thai Yoga Massage, Ayurvedic Massage and is a licensed Natural Health Practitioner.
It was during one of her regular sojourns to India in 2008, that she was initially introduced to the remarkable health benefits derived from inverting in a suspended fashion with the assistance of ropes. Having been a chronic back-pain sufferer for most of her life due to injuries sustained from a riding accident at an early age, she was enormously impressed by how pain-free she was after having suspended only a few times!
Upon returning to Canada, she continued to experiment with her newly learned method of performing yoga (which actually dates back 5,000 years) and to her amazement, discovered literally hundreds of ways that not only yoga poses but other movement and fitness modalities could be advanced through suspension. In 2010 she made the decision to create the first Suspension Yoga classes ever offered in Canada.
As a result of the incredible response, on September 17, 2011 - The Flying Yogi was born!
