BARBARA SMITHWICK

Certified Therapeutic Hatha Yoga teacher

 

Barbara is a nurse, a therapist in reflexology, and a therapeutic yoga teacher. She discovered yoga at Toronto's Harbord Street Ashram in 1990 while studying dance at the National Ballet School. She then moved to Montreal in 1991, and continued her yoga classes at the Sivananda Center. A personal yoga practice accompanied her throughout the years she worked as a nurse in hospitals, clinics and CLSCs. In 2010 Barbara undertook the podiatric care at the downtown medical clinic in Trois-Rivières, and then discovered YOGA3. With the encouragement of David, she decided to start the 500-hours teaching training program in therapeutic yoga at Montréal's Naada studio. She graduated from Naada in 2017, and now teaches yoga for the elderly, Pranayama and Hatha Yoga.
