Releasing tension

RISTO DUGGAN - Yoga Teacher Asana at Home
I am a Vancouver based yoga teacher with a focus on healing through alignment, engagement, and breath. My background as a semi-professional multi-sport athlete left my body broken and battered. On my 40th birthday I took my first yoga class and my life changed dramatically. Since completing the 200 hour yoga teacher training in 2007, I built a strong following of students who attend my Rocket classes, Active Yin classes, and Workshops. Rocket Yoga is an Ashtanga based practice created by Larry Schultz in the late 80’s. Larry took the first 3 sequences of Ashtanga and created 3 playful strong sequences from them. Active Yin is a combination of functional movement exercises combined with Yin poses. Mainly focussing on one area. Then staying there in a few long held peak poses. Hanging out at your “edge”…. Makes your “edge” expand! My main focus is on healing the body. Releasing tension through a strong practice focussing on the breath, and building true strength. I’m known for my focussed cueing, alignment, and positive guidance,
