How meditation and dance can empower you

With busy schedules, we don’t always have the time or remember the importance of getting in touch with our bodies and taking care of ourselves.

I spoke with Ayah Norris, a yoga instructor at Good Space in Toronto. We talked about her journey into yoga teaching and connecting with herself and students. Then, I briefly chat with Samantha Foster, who works at Canada’s National Ballet School on how the schools provide students with the space to better themselves and share dance with one another.

These two forms of movement seem different, and on first thought, they are. But what connects them is a form of empowerment. Whether it’s self-motivated or through those around us.

Ayah Norris was working in marketing when she decided to pursue her passion of yoga, first working on herself, and later becoming an instructor.   (Good Space Toronto)
