Get to know your instructor:
My name is Hanne Vieira, and I have been a yoga student and teacher for over a decade. Throughout my life, I have studied various forms of movement dance, capoeira, yoga, pilates and tensegrity. I graduated with 220hrs from kundalini yoga teacher training in Vancouver and mat pilates from Physical Mind Institute. I have 19 years of teaching experience and over 500 hrs in training. I have acquired extensive knowledge and certifications in Tantric Hatha Yoga in Brazil, Yin Yoga, Vijnana Yoga and Tensegrity at the Path Center in Vancouver, Canada. I am also a Registered Holistic Nutritionist (CSNN) and Holistic Massage Therapist (Expansao Terapia Integrada- Brazil). Additionally, I worked as a certified doula in Vancouver for seven years. Currently, I teach at UBC and independently via zoom or private sessions. My classes are focused on alignment, proper form, connection and uncovering your natural strength and mobility. You can expect to smile, sweat and leave your mat feeling lighter than when you arrived."
