Jess Young is an integrative health coach, a Banff-based yoga teacher, and a yin yoga teacher trainer.
As a yogi, teacher, dancer, & body worker, Basia channels her efforts toward a particular intention: to facilitate spiritual expression & joy through somatic ease. Yoga is traditionally a liberation teaching, practiced to bring us ever more close to the truth that at the centre of the fleeting, flowing, dynamism of being, our true nature is eternal, unlimited & free. Using the tools of conscious & creative movement, breath work, somatic grounding & massage therapy, Basia guides her students into fostering more sensitive awareness to the evolving language of the body as it speaks to us in sensation. She considers this conscious meeting with our body a reunion with our oldest friend, and that it should be experienced wholeheartedly as a celebration, glittered with dance moves, belly laughs, & cleansing sighs.
