Teacher Feature

We would like to introduce you to one of our talented Yoga Teachers at Hemma. Introducing Andrea Ting-Letts!

What can students expect from your classes?

In addition to being a yoga teacher, I am also a freelance writer. I love words, and I love stories in particular. I believe the stories of our lives – our past, present and our future – reside within our bodies. And I believe that there are stories that we share in common that we can explore through our yoga practice. To my classes I bring modern-day fables to which we can connect within our yoga practice: how to relieve ourselves of the urgency for instant gratification, how to hone our animal instincts, how to tend to the many gardens we cultivate, and more.

Bike to Hemma Week

Quite often when I am riding my bike around town I catch myself smiling – a big toothy grin for no particular reason other than I love riding my bike. I get a different perspective of the world than I do in my car. The wind in my hair, the smell of the flowers, the sounds of the neighbourhood, and even the bugs in me teeth – I love it all! I love the feeling in my body as I bike – knowing that my bones and muscles are working together with gravity to propel me down the road. Cycling brings me back to feeling like a kid at times because there is a huge sense of freedom and adventure. I guess that is why you will sometimes see me smiling as I bike by.

Next week is Bike to Work Week and because we love biking so much here, we are making it Bike to Hemma Week as well.  Arrive at Hemma on your bike between May 27th and June 2nd to enter a draw for free Yoga and Acupuncture. See you on your bike!!
