Athletic Coaching

Athletic Coaching

You were made to move. Who will rise to the demands of your life, if not you? Who will carry the groceries, pick up the kids, change the tire? Get stronger to do what you need to do. Between CrossFit and body weight exercises cultivated over many years of teaching, I will help you flourish in your environment.

Vocal Coaching

Vocal Coaching

Talk in your out-loud voice. There's not a lot of point having brilliant ideas that no one can access or understand, so let's get you out there. I will teach you how to speak: rhetoric, tone, articulation, volume, projection and pitch. This is for teachers, academics, activists, salespeople, and all arguers, both public and private.

Private Yoga

Private Yoga

Skill in action. Public classes are awesome because the group energy is so groovy and it's pleasant to be a face in the crowd. However, if you've got questions, problems or pain, or just want to drop into something more specific to your needs, come study with me privately. I'll help you clarify and expand on asanas you are already family with, make them more therapeutic and helpful in your body, and build from there. This can be combined with teacher mentoring if needed, and will even work long-distance via FaceTime or Google Circles.

Public Speaking

Public Speaking

Let’s hang out. I would love to speak at your symposium/conference/pep rally/bachelorette/yoga teacher training &c. My favourite subjects include, but are not limited to: skepticism, radical feminism, class analysis, picking up heavy things and putting them down again. For YTTs I will address sequencing, languaging, music, voice, theming, and teaching to all levels.

Yoga Teacher Mentoring

Yoga Teacher Mentoring

Tell them what they need to know. So you’ve done your yoga teacher training and you know about foot anatomy and fascia and the Gita and (insert curriculum here). Great! And how will the world get to hear your insights and inspirations? Teacher mentoring expands upon your teacher training. I’ll work with you personally on several criteria to improve your teaching.

Sjanie is to the Vancouver (if not the global) yoga culture, as water is to the ocean. She can in the same breath mix the wisdom of the ages with an incredibly well placed pop culture reference and some how relate it back to the emotional experience you had earlier that day. Her knowledge of the practise, her expertise in programming and uncanny understanding of the human body are un paralleled. Each class with this incredible human is a gift that I rarely take for granted.
