Mya Wollf (Pàirteach Mòirneas)
Mya Wollf, named Pàirteach Mòirneas by her elders, is a yogi, singer, multi-faceted holistic and traditional Animist healer, initiated Spirit Worker and counsellor, and semi-pro latin dancer based out of Vancouver, BC, on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded Indigenous territories of the ʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) First Nations. Here she walks as light of a path as she can as a white settler, and participates as deeply as she can in decolonization and anti-colonial work through the reclamation and sharing of ancestral knowledge and traditional forms of healing. Mya has spent more than 10 years working in frontline mental health support and grief, trauma and addiction counselling, and is devoted to bridging the gap between mental health and spiritual wellness.
In the realm of yoga, she is a 500hr advanced certified teacher in the Dharma tradition which follows the teachings of her Guru, Sri Dharma Mittra. She has roots in Anusara, Jivamukti, Tantra and Yin, with 14 years of practice, 8 years of teaching and nearly 1000 hours of training and study. Her classes weave in her love of music and song with devotion (Bhakti) to the ancient yogic traditions as taught in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, and are an endless dedication to compassion, freedom and wellbeing for all.
Mya works tirelessly in service to her LGBTQIA community to provide safe, accessible spaces for all genders and identities to find healing. She is an active supporter of anti-oppression work, including Indigenous resistance against resource extraction, anti-racist campaigns, wildlife conservation, forest/jungle preservation, migrant and workers rights and animal liberation.
