Founder, Ashley left home for university at the age of 17 and has spent the last 8 years bouncing between cities, airplanes, backpacks and suitcases. Despite her love of personal independence, she found that living away from family while navigating through life can sometimes get lonely. To top it off, Vancouver has been known for being cold, and we're not talking about the weather. At times it seemed like her only experience of physical touch came from business meeting handshakes #nofun.

While teaching yoga, Ashley would often offer extra hands on adjustments such as a small low back press in child's pose, a shoulder rub in pigeon, or a nice face massage in savasana. In doing so, she found that she was not alone: many people living away from family, as well as those that were single or living alone, felt that same lack of human touch. 

"We want to touch you, in a non-creepy way!"

Yoga is a place to find comfort, love, and belonging, on both your yoga mat and in your community. Feelosophy steps outside the traditional lines of the yoga experience in Vancouver. We want to touch you - give you that extra assistance in a hip opener or a comforting touch in child's pose - to remind you that you are okay, and you are not alone (or to remind you that your partner may not be the best at back rubs, but that's okay because you found us!). 

Feelosophy Yoga aims to offer you an opportunity to connect with the present moment through your body and breath, and by extension, to those around you. Our caring and communicative approach ensures a safe and comfortable experience, with the end goal being a renewed connection with yourself and your community.

Morgan Woodfine - @morganwoodfine- Yoga Teacher Morgan received her 200hr YTT on the beautiful island of Maui. Under the leadership and guidance of her beloved teacher Karin Kuhn she found herself in awe in the practise of yin and restorative yoga used to heal and treat athletes that came to the island to restore and repair injured and overworked muscles and bones. It was then she saw the need for hands on touch and light massage to help deepen the pose and postures that helped so greatly in their recovery.  Morgan is a lover of the light, prefers to be barefoot and is most at ease in the dirt. Her deepest passions of the world is food to write home about, personal growth and leadership that shakes the earth and most recently sustainable living and the minimalist mindset. You can find her learning, loving and growing through life on the north shore with her husband nic and boxer puppy nelson.
