Ilana was initially drawn to yoga, a number of years ago, to cope with stress during her theatre training. However, as she began to experience the immense power of yoga - not only for tension release, but for all aspects of well-being, her practice became an integral part of her daily routine. Hoping to share this profound gift with others, Ilana eventually headed off to Vancouver to train at the Lila School of Vinyasa with two yoga teachers she greatly admired, Clara Roberts-Oss and Carolyne Anne Budgell.
Ilana incorporates knowledge of pranayama (breathing techniques) and alignment based asana (postures), in her sequencing. She hopes to inspire yogis to listen to their inner voices, in order to awaken their true potential as human beings and experience the full benefits of the practice.
