About Subvert Yoga + Wellness

Hello and welcome! I’m Nadine Dyer, the owner of Subvert Yoga + Wellness. I live in beautiful northern Ontario Canada with my partner, our two teens, and a handful of quirky pets. I’ve been a practitioner of yoga for most of my adult life, but it was during the recent global pandemic that I found myself committing to deepening my personal practice. Through the uncertainty of the pandemic, to the unexpected death of my older brother at the start of 2021, to a significant health crisis with one of my kids – I repeatedly turned to my yoga practice and found a way to calm the turbulent waters of my mind and find peace and focus during incredibly difficult circumstances.

 

Yoga has been a deeply integral part of my daily life for a long time, and yet – I didn’t feel comfortable or welcome in most yoga studio spaces. I am a bigger-bodied yogi who has spent years in and out of some very disregulated eating behaviours. I am also neurodiverse and have a few chronic health conditions. It was a real challenge for me to find a space that felt truly welcoming and inclusive, so I practiced solo. One particular day in the spring of 2021 I realized that if I was sitting around looking for a place that was for me, then others were out there looking for the same thing. That’s when the seed was planted and I knew that I wanted to find a way to bring yoga to populations of folks who have largely been excluded from mainstream yoga spaces. Yoga for the rest of us.
