Aurora El Niño

​            Our Lead Yoga Instructor, Aurora, has always been intrigued by the movement of the body. She was a dedicated and consistent participant within several gyms and bootcamp classes pursuing her love for activity, intensity, and weightlifting. It's a guarantee you'll see her out exploring trails and getting lost in the nature that Nova Scotia has blessed her life with. She has been practicing yoga for almost 12 years, dabbling in many different paths such as Vinyasa, Hatha, Basic Yoga, Pranayama, Mantra, Meditation, Yin, and Ashtanga Yoga. Her love for Ashtanga grew into a frequent practice becoming a foundational block within her journey.

​            Pattabhi Jois and Adriene Mishler are Aurora's two biggest influences in her practices but many others walk by her side such as the Dalai Lama, Baba Ram Dass, Desmond Tutu, Bob Marley, Joe Black, and Hayao Miyazaki. With these influences, Aurora is able to build a dedicated and challenging practice. This has given her the ability to learn how to deepen, explore, and play to better discover what yoga means to her. ​Unity, above all, is at the core of yoga as it is derived from the Sanskrit word, yuj, which is the root of the word "yoke". Today, in the west, it may be difficult to find a yoke (unless you visit her parents and happen to gaze above their dinning room table) but without one, today wouldn't exist. Farmers would use a yoke to take a mature ox and yoke them together with a younger ox, giving experience to the youthful oxen, creating a more stable plow for the future. How fitting. Together, at haum, let's create a more stable plow for the future. Because today, like the oxen of yesterday, we're building for tomorrow.
