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 II Instructor at the national level.
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 have been accepted to return in 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.
