My name is Adesola, also known as Desi, and I began my yoga practice 8 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 local parks and trail hikes, attending pilates classes, spending quality time with my partner and loved ones, or scouring the restaurants of the lower mainland for dishes that satisfy my huge appetite!
