Mary Loy, CYT 200
Certifications: Certified Yoga Teacher 200 hours, May 2017
Having practiced yoga for over 7 years, some of the benefits of this practice seeped into my being slowly over the time and other benefits were apparent almost immediately. As I draw closer to my retirement day from nursing and pondering what to do, it was clear that I wished to help others as I have been helped.
Christy Cook, CYT 200
Certifications: Certified Yoga teacher 200; with Deva Tree School of Yoga, Trios College: Physiotherapist Assistant, Fanshawe College: Fitness & Health Promotion
As a long time health enthusiast I tried yoga after the birth of my first son, and enjoyed it as much as running. It wasn’t until after the birth of my second son that I truly appreciated the impact on my mental health. As a mom of two you busy boys, and working full-time outside of the home; finding the balance and time for myself became so much more important. I attended Deva Tree wanting to grow my personal practice and realized how much I wanted to share the gift of yoga with you.

“I always knew I wanted to get into a profession that would help other individuals in some aspect of their lives. When the opportunity arose to become a yoga teacher, it felt as though everything was falling into place. As a mother of three children, with two being home births, it was only natural for me to become a certified Prenatal yoga teacher. Soon afterward, I was drawn to receive training as a Labour Doula and Bellies Inc. certified; which completely changing my focus toward pelvic health in my teaching. I am honoured to be a part of the lives of so many people. Namaste.”

I realized I was very passionate towards achieving wellness in all dimensions of my life which is what attracted me to yoga. After seeing the benefits yoga had on my life I wanted to share it with others and therefore become a teacher. Yoga is a great workout for your body and your mind; it is something everyone should try to incorporate into their daily lives!
