About Basia: As a little girl Basia browsed through her father?s books on yoga and in 1992 she began her formal practice. It was Sivananda yoga that first opened Basia?s heart to practice and exploration and since then she has continued to expand her studies under the guidance of various teachers. After completing her first teacher training in 1997 Basia discovered the Ashtanga yoga practice and began her studies with Richard Freeman. Since then she has become co-director of the Santosha Yoga studios in Ottawa and studied with several teachers among whom include David Swenson, Anna Forest, Hart Lazer, Sianna Sherman, Beryl Bender Birch and the teacher who has stirred her perspective on yoga the most- Vyass Houston. Playful by nature, Basia balances great strength with softness in her practice, teaching and life. With a background in healing arts, Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupuncture Basia creates an interesting blend in her teaching. Sustaining her practice outside of the classroom you can find Basia creating beautiful stained glass artwork, painting, dancing or continuing to build her country home.
