    Navjeet Mackie

    Teaching Soul Yoga Classes

She has taught in many different places around the world including: India, Thailand, Toronto, New York (at The Omega Institute), Halifax and here in Wolfville. She is the mother of two beautiful children who are her greatest inspiration to be her best self. Her healing journey began with Kundalini yoga and continues today in many forms.

    Navjeet has been practising deep emotional processing in combinations with spirituality for the past three and a half years. While she first experienced this emotional processing early on in yoga class, she went deeply into it and began to understand it after watching some of The Divine Truth Teachings and reading the book Emotional Fitness by Janice Berger. These sources helped her to more fully understand how releasing deep emotions is a true healer of the body, spirit, and soul.

    Navjeet is passionate about growing spiritually and is always seeking God, Truth, and Love. She has experienced a lot of personal healing from pain, depression and anxiety over the past fifteen years. By combining yoga, prayer and deep emotional processing she hopes to help others find the tools they need to truly heal at a soul level.

    Ian Brunton

     

    Ian has lived in and near Wolfville all his life. He received two degrees in English literature from Acadia University, and since then has worked as a certified personal trainer. He started practicing yoga for its benefits in

    flexibility and strength, but when he began studying to teach yoga and discovered its philosophical roots, it opened up a whole new world. Yoga became a holistic practice that now influences not only how he teaches yoga classes, but also his daily life and how he works with clients in the gym. Ian believes

    that, like physical fitness, yoga should be accessible to everyone, no matter what their age, physical ability, or body shape.
