Mackenzie has been practicing yoga for over 10 years. She always wanted to complete her teacher training but, for one reason or another, life kept getting in the way. Then, on a whim, she attended an info session at YYOGA in Vancouver. Finally, everything clicked together and there were no more excuses not to pursue her dream. Mackenzie’s classes are best described as challenging, dynamic and accessible — students can expect to work but there will always be options for everyone. She focuses strongly on alignment to empower students to explore their practice in the safest way possible. A creative writer by trade and a yoga teacher by passion, Mackenzie lives in False Creek aboard a 45-foot sailboat with her husband and golden retriever.
