Have you ever stopped to think about everything your body does for you in a typical day? Did you know…
Varenka Schwartz (Sub)
Hola! My name is Varenka. I was born and raised in Mexico City and moved to Canada when I was 24. I lived in the Kootenays for 6 years and currently live in Nanaimo.
I received my 200 hour teacher training on Classical Hatha and Ashtanga Yoga through the Salt Spring Centre of Yoga as well as my Prenatal Yoga Teacher certification. I have always been drawn to work and play with children and I got certified through Rainbow Kids Yoga to share yoga with children and their families. I have also done several workshops and trainings for Acroyoga and Yin Yoga.
I also have a 300 hr teacher training in Traditional Tantra Yoga from Shri Kali Ashram in Goa, India. I am a 500 hr Registered Yoga Teacher through the Canadian Yoga Alliance and a Lakshmi Voelker Chair Yoga Teacher. I have taught for 7 years and ABSOLUTELY LOVE YOGA!
My full time job consists of managing a child care and out of school care programs. In my free time, I share my life with my husband Mike. We play Acroyoga, enjoy the outdoors, hike, slackline, canoe in the ocean, and cook all sorts of Mexican, Japanese and other delicious foods! There are still many more things I want to do and learn and I’m excited to share part of this journey with you.
