MY STORY

Headshot%25202_edited_edited.jpg

Namaste,

My name is Adesola, also known as Desi, and I began my yoga practice 5 years ago. Today, I can barely recognise myself! This traditional and ancient practice has transformed me, my life - and how I view it - in ways I could never have imagined.

When it came to my career, I had a few ambitious dreams - none of which involved yoga. As life would have it, another path had been laid out for me. After much resistance, I let go of the desires I had for myself and with no expectations, relocated across the pond from London,UK to Vancouver, BC. What awaited me would be my most exciting journey yet. 

It was here that I first became acquainted with yoga. My yoga journey has been a humbling experience, through which I have learned to embrace the uncertainty of life and connect deeper with myself. Yoga has provided me with the tools to meet emotional, spiritual, psychological and physical challenges that I experience on and off my mat with an open mind and to overcome them with strength and confidence.

When I am not working in the healthcare sector, I spend my free time exploring Coquitlam parks and trail hikes, learning Mandarin, or scouring the restaurants of the lower mainland for dishes that satisfy my huge appetite! I hope to one day reside by the water somewhere warm and run around after my long-awaited fur-baby.
