About your teacher: Lillian Chan

LilianI was first exposed to Yoga in the year 2000 and have enjoyed practicing ever since. When I left the corporate world of retail back in 2012 I found myself drawn to explore the practice even further and enrolled in the Teacher Training Program at Body to Bliss Yoga Studio where I completed and graduated from the course in June 2013.  I never imagined a form of exercise and relaxation would turn into a 2nd career.

Since then I have been teaching classes at Body to Bliss Yoga Studio as well as bringing yoga to the areas surrounding the city of Vaughan & Brampton.

I am pleased to offer yoga to students of various levels and exposure ranging from the young age of 6 to seniors.  In addition to my RYT 200 certification under the Yoga Alliance of Canada, I also hold various hours and certificates in other yoga related training such as YIN, Kids Yoga, Yoga for Seniors, Chair Yoga, Prenatal, aa well as understanding the importance of Core and Pilates methods.

The physical practice of yoga has definitely help strengthen my body and allow for better flexibility over the years but it is the true overall practice of yoga that has enhanced my body, mind and spirit; my life!
