Namaste from Misty Lucas of Vikara Yoga,
My name is Misty Lucas and I love yoga ♥ because of this I created Vikara Yoga.
I am passionate about the healing capabilities of Restorative Yoga. Also I love the philosophy of yoga as it relates to our time on the earth. My passion comes from my own healing journey and experience with yoga.
I love to share yoga with people who have never tried yoga, people in recovery and advanced students alike. Above all I teach privately or in small class settings to really connect with my students. And therefore teaching yoga really lights me up!
In private or semi-private classes I am able support students in their own practice.
My speciality is working with injured or chronic pain students. My own personal experience and trainings gives me a unique insight to building a yoga practice while healing. Restorative yoga is a powerful healing tool.
Yoga is a gift. In other words a gift that provides physical, mental and spiritual growth and many other benefits.
Therefore my belief is yoga is for every body.
My dharma is to share yoga with the world. My niche is focused on restorative and private or semi-private lessons with people who are in recovery from illnesses or injury. Because of this I focus on a slower practices, one on one or in small groups. This provides an opportunity to guide people to find their own yoga.
A teacher once said to me it is more powerful to be the guide on the side than the sage on the stage. This statement resonates deeply with me and is reflected in my teachings.
My intention is to guide people back to their own hearts through yoga.
As a teacher I am registered, certified and insured Yoga Alliance (E-RYT200 & YACEP) and Canadian Yoga Alliance (E-RYT Gold). I have 1000++hrs in yoga training and this provides me with the knowledge to create alignment based classes safe for the body. My classes also include techniques for finding mindfulness and relaxation.
I am a Reiki Level II practitioner. I integrate this powerful energetic practice in my teachings.
Connecting to our own inner wisdom creates the transformation people may be seeking and cultivates space to heal.
Our journey through this life is continuous and connecting, transforming and healing is lifelong.
