Not all yoga classes are created equal.

Dear yogi,

I’ve been teaching weekly online classes for practitioners around the world through my Skillful Yogi community since 2018. I LOVE crafting these classes!

For me, postural practice is never separate from yogic wisdom but part of an integrated path toward greater clarity, self-knowledge, and more purposeful living.

If you're already familiar with my teaching style, well, then you know my passion for practice, for diving deep into the art and skill of asana, for unpacking the intricacies of the poses through thoughtful and creative sequencing, and for penetrating the depth of postural practice through refined and nuanced alignment technique. 

I love sharing these practices with like-minded practitioners who approach asana not only as an exquisite, ever-deepening physical discipline, but as a framework for meeting ourselves and honing the self-reflective awareness that helps us become more of who we want to be in our lives. 
 
If you’re a yoga teacher or continuing student ready to enrich your experience of postural practice, it would be an honor to support you on your journey.
 

Yours in yoga,

Barrie

A beautifully wise and articulate teacher with an incredible amount of experiential knowledge and passion.

This was exactly what my body needed after a rigorous performance weekend! This one will be a keeper in my regularly scheduled programming for sure.

This class was brilliant. I was able to do the pose deeper and with more awareness than I have for many years. Loved it. Thank you!!

Barrie was my first yoga teacher 25 years ago. She's my yoga teacher today. With her weekly classes, my own understanding of asana and philosophy continues to deepen. My yoga students think that I pore over yoga books in order to keep my classes fresh and creative. However, Barrie’s weekly classes are my real secret.

This practice was just what I needed today! I loved the garlanding of the deep lunge poses! I appreciated the longer, but not overly-long held postures with blocks and a bolster. These props allowed me to micro-adjust, micro-stretch more, micro-adjust, micro-stretch more, etc. which felt both therapeutic and empowering! Thanks! 🙏

I appreciated the heaviness in my legs in Paschimottanasana. It changed my experience of the pose. All the prep work allowed my spine and torso much more freedom too. An energy shift within the posture. Lovely!!

This class was an excellent build up to the full pose. I found it to be hard work but both enlightening and rewarding. I shall return to this one as it has many elements that I would benefit from working with. Thank you 🙏🏻

This was my second time practicing this sequence and it remains my favourite.... this week. After a day of snow activities, this class really helped me to get myself back to earth. I'm feeling grounded and reassured.
