Peta Thompson, Instructor

Peta is a Yoga Alliance certified RYT 200hr teacher, as well as a certified Yin teacher. 

She began practicing yoga a decade ago, in an attempt to repair the body and slow down the mind whilst living the life as a full time skydiving instructor.

Peta moved to Canada, from Australia in 2015, completed 200 teacher training in Nelson, BC in 2018 and again with Rebecca Marshall at Haven in 2019.

Yoga has been quite the journey for Peta, starting at one end of the spectrum as an ex-military skydiving instructor, and over the years discovering the value of stillness, meditation, and restorative yoga. The Yang met the Yin and created an essential balance. 

She believes that yoga is a way of life, and when we come to our mat we practice yoga, so that we can bring it to our every day life. 

Movement is medicine, we have the ability to heal our own bodies by practicing movement and mindfulness and connecting to our selves on a deeper level. I believe it is important as a yoga teacher to not only guide a yoga class, but also to teach our students to become their own yoga teachers.

You can join her in a variety of classes, including Yin, Restorative, Flow, Vinyasa, Power.
