About Me and Contact Information

My name is Pamela Nelson.  I live in Christopher Lake, Saskatchewan on a small acreage with my family.

I have been practicing yoga for over 20 years.  I started in my early 20's, and my intention at that time was to use yoga as a way to increase flexibility after long runs or bike rides.  I quickly realized how beneficial it was to not only my strength and flexibility, but also my mental well-being.  I love the openness yoga brings to the body and the quietness to the mind.  I have found it helps with confidence and personal self acceptance. 

I completed my degree in Land Use and Environmental Studies and Physical Geography from the University of Saskatchewan at around the same time I started yoga and find that yoga has helped me keep a deep connection to the earth and keep focused on the health of the earth and how amazing it is in the many ways it provides for us. 

I am so grateful to be learning the Iyengar style of yoga from many wonderful instructors. 

I am a member of the Iyengar Association of  Canada (IYAC) and certified as an Intermediate Junior III Instructor at the national level, now called Level 3.
I regularly attends Iyengar yoga classes, workshops and intensives held by senior international IY teachers, including travelling to Pune, India to study with the Iyengar family in 2013 and 2018.
I have also completed a Yoga for Trauma training in 2016.

I am dedicated to lifelong learning and committed to sharing my training and experience with students of yoga.
I teach all level of classes including Beginner, All-levels, Intermediate, Iyengar Flow, Gentle/Restorative, Backs and Joints, Senior/Modified and Youth and Kids. 
My teaching style is clear, pragmatic and direct yet filled with gentle humor and joy.
I have been teaching in Prince Albert and area for many years at various locations. I have taught in quite a few of the schools in Prince Albert as well as for various companies.

I feel I am adaptable to many situations, yet teach from what I know and try to share this as best I can.  I love teaching yoga in a way that is accessible to all and to continue as is often said, In the Light of Guruji's work.
