Humble Abode Yoga Studio
Madeline Mills - Founder and Owner
Hatha, Vinyasa and Tantra RYT-200 with Yoga Alliance“Where is home?” is a question I get asked a lot, and I have never really known what to answer, being a military brat and then joining the Canadian Forces myself. Is home where I currently have my furniture and pets, or the place I lived the longest or the place I liked the most? Is home where my parents live? Is it where my extended family lives and where I was born? It’s a concept that I have struggled with for the majority of my life. This is what inspired the name Humble Abode Yoga Studio. I want to create a place of comfort, that can be anyone’s home away from home.
I found yoga when I was struggling with my mental health and physical health. I have been extremely active my entire life and one day my body decided it had enough and I was in extreme pain. A family member suggested I try yoga, and so my journey began. Over the next five years, I had lived in three different cities, been away from my house for different training events and deployed overseas. Every place I ended up, I found a space and a mat and found my home, a place I was comfortable. Eventually, I was asked to start leading practices when no yoga studios were nearby, this is when I discovered my love for sharing my practice with others. In May 2019, I finally found some time (and extra cash), packed my bags and headed to Peru for a 14-day intensive 200hr yoga teacher training. Upon my return, I knew that my passion was sharing my practice and I hoped one day to open a studio… here we are.
I hope that you will find the same comfort in yoga and your mat as I do, and I welcome you to Humble Abode Yoga Studio, your home away from home.
