Meet Sky and Slade
Registered Reflexologist, Yoga Instructor, Reiki Practitioner and End of Life / Pregnancy & Infant Loss Doula:
Sky strongly believes in the body's own ability to heal itself. Through dedication to healthy living and the integration of various holistic techniques, Sky can facilitate health-giving energy, helping to bring balance and harmony into her own and her client's life, while also aiding to restore the mind and body connection. Those holistic techniques include Yoga, Meditation, Mindfulness, Reflexology, Reiki, and Aromatherapy. Sky is trained in the yoga styles of Hatha, Yin, AcroYoga (aka yogaFLIGHT) and Adaptive Yoga.
For the past 4 years, Sky has committed her life fully to volunteering with both Children and Community Hospice in Toronto at Sick Kids Hospital, Emily's House and the Philip Aziz Centre.
Additionally, Sky has trained as both a Death Doula and Pregnancy & Infant Loss Doula through Home Hospice Association.
Having recently completed a 900+km walking journey on the Camino Trail in France and Spain, her dedication to maintaining well-being and balance is especially renewed. Vitality is important, not only for herself, but also for the friends, family and clients within her life.
Registered Massage Therapist and Yoga Instructor:
Slade graduated from the Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy in Toronto with honours focusing on sports, rehabilitation and prenatal massage.
He loves the reality that being a massage therapist doesn't feel like work and the pure joy that comes from helping people is one that is cherished and honoured. He believes a balanced approach between fascial, deep tissue, trigger point, joint mobilization and Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation techniques is most effective.
Slade is a professional skydiver, taking students on their first jump as a Tandem Instructor or capturing the experience as a photographer and videographer. The most important part of that role carries over to massage. Keep people safe and empower them with knowledge to make choices right for them. This is evident in his firm belief that proper assessment and palpation to identify specific structures leads to better understanding of client concerns as well as efficient and effective use of treatment time.
His training as a yoga instructor provides a solid foundation for incorporating alignment principles and good bio mechanics when offering therapeutic exercise. His continuing yoga education reminds him that our over all health is much more than a healthy body.
He also teaches partner yoga in the form of Acroyoga, through dynamic and therapeutic modalities that create connection, clear communication and trust.
