Maritime Yoga Retreats
Freeport & Brier Island, Nova Scotia
Colleen was born in Halifax and raised in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia until the age of 17. Her family moved to Bancroft, Ontario in 1972 and this is when she first found yoga. Weekdays after school there was a T.V. show "Yoga with Kareen" and Colleen would follow along with it. High school ended and yoga was forgotten until 2003, when a yoga instructor was brought into her local gym one day a week; it was love at first class. After moving to St.Catharines, Ontario in 2005 she found a yoga studio that offered several classes a week and thus began her yogic journey. Shortly after the death of her husband in 2009 she travelled to Rishikesh, India for her first of many yoga trainings.
Colleen has a c-IAYT designation with the International Association of Yoga Therapists which is a credentialing and self-governing body for yoga therapists. She is also an active member and RYT500/eRYT500 with Yoga Alliance which is simply a directory of yoga teachers.
