Growing up in Toronto, Hayley was around yoga and yogic ideas from the very beginning. Both her mother and grandmother practiced yoga and meditation. Over the years, she went through periods when she would attend hatha yoga classes regularly, but the style did not resonate with her, and she never stuck with it for very long. Then, in 2005 Hayley went to her first hot power vinyasa class and felt a strong connection. The practice was both physically demanding and meditative. It was vigorous and mindful. It felt like coming home. It was also fun! Over time, she established a consistent yoga and meditation practice, and started reading as much as she could on the endless topic. Practice, self-study, and guidance from amazing teachers helped her to become more healthy and happy, and led her down a path that changed her life. She has done trainings with Elizabeth Huntsman DeAngelis and Tricia Philpot, Claire Este-MacDonald and Gregor Singleton, Marc StPierre, Beryl Bender Birch, Rolph Gates, Bryan Kest, Natasha Rizopolus, Stephen Cope and Baron Baptiste.
