Already an experienced Pilates teacher and yoga practitioner, Izabella began her journey with Kundalini Yoga in Hawaii three years ago, returning to Toronto to train under Sat Dharam Kaur. This decision came hand in hand with the experience of burnout from her corporate gig, which was a blessing in disguise as it brought her closer to yoga. She’s spent the last three years studying the somatic experience and release of trauma as well as stress management using mindfulness, sound, and Vedic practices. In 2019 she travelled to India to study Hatha, Ashtanga Vinyasa, Yoga Nidra, Restorative, Advaita Vedanta, Vedic Mantra, and Sound Healing using Tibetan Singing Bowls. Using a light hearted and humorous approach, Izabella brilliantly teaches how the mechanisms in our body are constantly running and how we can equip ourselves with the right tools to not be subjected to our body’s outdated auto pilot, and instead to live healthy, joyful and balanced lives. She encourages her students to connect with their power, reminding them that how we show up for life can be a choice. Off the mat you can catch her planning the next surf trip, SCUBA Diving, taking photos and dancing her heart out.
