I’m Phoebe, yoga and meditation teacher, musician, writer and creator of Savaka Yoga - a system of hatha yoga instruction based on the principles of mindfulness meditation. Savaka is an ancient Pali word meaning “one who hears”. Savaka Yoga celebrates the practice of listening deeply – to our bodies, our minds and ourselves – as we cultivate strength, stability, balance and flexibility.
It’s incredible to feel at ease within your body, attuned to the present moment. As a teacher, my goal is to facilitate this experience for my students. Over the years, I’ve studied with teachers all over the world from traditions as diverse as Ashtanga, Power Yoga, Anusara, Iyengar and Scaravelli yoga. I share these experiences, and my knowledge of biomechanics and anatomy, to provide a safe and compassionate learning environment.
Yoga has helped me recover from the stresses and injuries of a professional music career. Yoga studios have been my refuge and positive spaces of shared community. By connecting to our breath we can fully embody each pose and the spaces in between, accessing our inherent creativity and power to heal. I emphasize a mindful practice that takes the time to honour our personal experience of the present moment as we journey inwards.
At present, the Savaka Yoga method is offered exclusively at Alliance Francaise Toronto. Please visit the YogaTrail profile of Savaka Yoga at the Alliance Francaise.
