Margot Wyllie’s Bio and Training
“Margot is real, grounded, easy to be around, making all in her presence feel welcome and comfortable to be themselves.” She was inspired to take her first yoga class by her mother when in high school, unaware that the practice would become a life long journey. Her first teacher, Margaret North, did a wonderful job of instilling the principles of peace, presence, awareness, flexibility, contentment and humour into her practice, that set her on the path of yoga that she has never strayed far from. During this 18 year journey, Margot has been blessed with practices and experience from many different styles, paths and teachers of yoga all around the world. She completed her 200 hour Certified Yoga Teacher Training through the Southern Okanagan Yoga Academy (SOYA), Canada, with Mugs McConnell in 2009, and thrives on sharing these teachings with the world.
In 2013, Margot continued her education into Yoga Therapy, studying with the amazing healer Susi Hately, and is a Certified Yoga Therapist and has completed her 800 hour Yoga Therapy Program . Through this training and deeper awareness, she has been able to slow her practice and deepen her understanding of movement, function, tension, pain, the healing path and uncovering one’s true self. Margot is a Certified Yoga Therapist with the International Association of Yoga Therapists and the Australian Association of Yoga Therapists.
