And I said to my body, softly,

‘I want to be your friend.’

It took a long breath and replied,

'I have been waiting my whole life for this.'

Tim creates and leads workshops, retreats and classes in Restorative, Yin, Tensegrity, Hatha, Kids and Laughter yoga styles. He also hosts workshops and one-on-one private sessions. He teaches at various studios in and around Vancouver (YYoga / The Path / The Hive – North Shore), leading programs for YMCA Boys4Real, The Vancouver Police, The Kelty Mental Health Group, BrainWave Caregivers — BC Children’s Hospital, University of BC – Enrollment Services and presenting at Vancouver and Victoria Yoga Conferences.

Living with allergies, arthritis, injuries and past hearing- loss, Tim understands some of the complexities human life can encompass. His approach of “less is more” is intertwined within the gentle forms of yoga he shares — listening and allowing the body and mind to soften, so conscious healing can begin. This opens up a more integrative connection between the physical and energetic pathways through honoring the bodies and life-styles we all actively live in.
