Yoga Alliance E-RYT 500 /YACEP
Canadian native Tori Mitchell’s passion for yoga sparked while studying abroad on a university exchange in Mysore, India in 2008. Since then she has practiced and taught internationally in Taiwan, India, Bali, Canada and Portugal. Her continued education in yogic studies contributes to an ever evolving teaching methodology. Her focus is to provide support to students on their path to a sustainable yoga practice. Tori views yoga as stress management practices that help students to find health and vitality in their daily lives. Her teaching philosophy and methodology is based on her formal training, a strong athletic background and teaching experience in Hatha, Ashtanga, Rocket, Yin and Vinyasa yoga. Tori advocates that everyone can benefit from some movement and yoga in their life, prospering from the mind – body connection central to yogic practices.
Tori is the founder of Vibe Yoga School, originally based in Tainan, Taiwan. Through her RYS 200 school Tori has offered specialized workshops, teacher trainings and retreats. Since arriving in Portugal in 2019 Tori has taught at Lisbon Ashtanga Vinyasa schools Casa Vinyasa and Agora Lisboa. She currently works wholeheartedly on her project of sustainability with her Portuguese partner at their home and yoga studio 6 Senses Yoga in Sesimbra, Portugal. Pedro and Tori organize regular clean-ups to help the environment within their community. They also hold regular AcroYoga jams to promote social well being through yoga, exploring communication and trust with others. Their eco shop has mostly handmade products from natural, recycled or renewable materials all made in Portugal.
