GUEST TEACHER BIO
Colynn Vosburgh brings her West Coast teaching style and life experiences from British Columbia, Canada. After practicing yoga and nursing for over 14 years, Colynn decided to create a massive change and began attending Medical School as well as took her 200hr Yoga Teacher Training. As it is known to do, YTT changed Colynn’s mind on the direction in life she was going. Within 2 years, Colynn quit med-school and nursing & decided to pursue a career in coaching through Yoga & Meditation. Colynn’s western clinical fusion and knowledge of anatomy, physiology and disease process coupled with eastern philosophies makes her classes original and life changing, both mentally and physically.
Colynn truly believes that the world we are operating in is hazardous to our health and wellness. She teaches a supportive class that allows her students to connect to the present moment and take the time to let go of some of the stresses constantly plaguing each person. Regardless of the style of teaching, Colynn promises to deliver a class in which you connect deeper to your true-self, you discharge your nervous system, and you focus on your breath as a tool. Increasing the awareness of your body puts you back in touch with your inherent healing nature and sets you up to integrate these practices when you leave the retreat. Empowering students to continue with this journey far beyond our time together.
Colynn is owner of Frik-Shuhn Yoga & Coaching – a successful boutique studio and yoga school in BC – and has been evolving her teaching skills over the past 5 years by attending such certification programs as Meditation Teacher Training, Yin & Chakra Training, Restorative Teacher Training, Private Yoga Teacher Training, Reiki Level 1, Coaching Apprenticeships, Partner Yoga Teacher Training, Kids Yoga Teacher Training & 300 hour Teacher Training. She has integrated her knowledge into her favourite styles of yoga and teaches unique Flow (Vinyasa), Restorative, Meditation & Yin classes as a result.
For Colynn, Yoga is a sacred teaching offering us tools that help us to navigate life. The postures (known as asana) remind us to connect to our individual anatomy and bring us back into our bodies, while meditation sparks a conversation with our minds, and the breath nourishes us and helps to connect the mind and the body. While it can all seem so heavy, it doesn’t have to be. Colynn mixes humor, real life and spirituality into a themed, awesome playlisted and fun yoga class that will help you release tension, relax your body (yes, even in flow) and reconnect to you.
During the week at Anamaya, morning classes will be strong, flowing sequences that focus on waking up your body and mind, while being present to your breathing, alignment and experience in each moment. Evening classes will have alternated between candlelit Yin & candlelit Restorative and will mirror not only am classes, but will also be the perfect compliment to your activities throughout the day, be they adventuring, surfing or suntanning.
Beyond wanting to teach you great yoga classes, Colynn wants to make the entire experience at Anamaya rejuvenating and impactful. Colynn’s classes, workshops & healing work are aimed at increasing your awareness of you as the observer of your body, thoughts and mind to offer you understanding and knowledge of a way to disentangle yourself from the dramas of life. Slowing down is not something that you do, it is a state of being and no matter what you are doing in life, you can find a way to be. All work done during this week, will be centered around reconnecting, slowing down and enjoying life with lush jungles and sandy beaches as the backdrop to immense growth.

PAST LIFE REGRESSION
In Yogic tradition, the atman, or true-self, is unharmed in death and continues to reincarnate into physical bodies through the passage of time. Each life has a lesson associated with it and the lesson continues to repeat until it is learned. Each life teaching something different, something more, to support you on your continued journey. Allow me to guide you back through 2 past lives so that those lessons can be sprinkled into your present life. This class is 1.5 – 2 hours depending on how many people attend. Price is $25.
