Sappho Balfour

Yoga Instructor

I grew up in Calgary and have lived here almost entirely, but for a few years on the west coast. I have spent many years as a student in one form or another, and will always consider life to be a learning journey.

In 1991 I attended my first yoga class on Saltspring Island, and experienced the inner changes and growing awareness that come with a yoga practice. After SSI, came a life changing trip to India where I became intrigued with Hindu and Buddhist religious systems. Eventually, it was back to Calgary where I obtained a degree in Culture & Communications and an MA in Religious Studies.

Following the ‘mind’ work I embarked on a yoga teacher training program at the Yoga Centre of Calgary where I became a certified yoga teacher. After successfully completing that program I began teaching yoga and started my massage therapy training at Mount Royal College. After many gratifying years in bodywork, I studied to become a Registered Nurse and now spend my time using all three skill sets – community nursing, teaching yoga and massaging.

My yoga classes embrace physical harmony, emotional expression, spirituality, group camaraderie, and often humour.
