“Where is home?” is a question I get asked a lot, and I have never really known what to answer, being a military brat and then joining the Canadian Forces myself. Is home where I currently have my furniture and pets, or the place I lived the longest, or the place I liked the most? Is home where my parents live? Is it where my extended family lives and where I was born? It’s a concept that I have struggled with for the majority of my life. This is what inspired the name Humble Abode Yoga Studio. I want to create a place of comfort, that can be anyone’s home away from home.
Julia Whaley - Teacher
My first experience with yoga was at the age of 15 and it was one that I’ll never forget. I remember coming out of my first class feeling this sense of inner peace and clarity for the first time, really, in my life. I felt more alive, and had a deeper sense of connection with myself that I hadn’t ever felt before. I eventually found myself going to many classes a week as a young teenager, and continued my yoga practice throughout my high school and post secondary studies. I knew that I had always wanted to teach yoga after that initial class I attended, and my desire was to be able share that connection with self and feelings of peace and clarity with others.
One year from graduating college, I decided to commit to my dream of teaching yoga and registered for a 200hr intensive program in Rishikesh, India. Since returning to Canada after travelling abroad for several months, I have started my teaching practice. I am so excited to be able to share the knowledge and experience that I have gained over the years, and will continue to learn and share it with others for years to come.
