Fotini Chandrika

Fotini Chandrika was called to the practice of Yoga in 2002, during a health crisis
which quickly became the catalyst for her journey of self discovery and healing.
Her dedication to the practice continued through pregnancy, post partum and
with her newborn baby (now a teenager!) joining her on the mat. The Yoga path
led Fotini to a higher level of consciousness where she found a deeper
understanding of her lifelong connection with Nature and Horses This connection
reignited her childhood love of the arts and, in particular, poetry and creative
writing. In 2013, inspired by her son and the Horses, she felt a deep calling to
enroll in her first Yoga Teacher Training. Fotini's path has led her to becoming a
multi-certified Yoga and Meditation Teacher, as well as achieving renowned
certifications in Expressive Arts, Ayurvedic Lifestyle Counseling, Trauma
Informed Yoga Therapy, Holistic Wellness and Equine Facilitated Learning, with
internationally recognized accreditations. Most of all, Yoga has helped her build a
bridge from her head back to her heart where she has experienced a profound
remembering of who she is which she aspires to share with others through her
heart centered classes, workshops, retreats and trainings at her farm in Loretto,
Ontario and virtually with clients from around the globe, Fotini is dedicated to
lifelong learning and continues to pursue ongoing education through Yoga
related, trauma informed trainings. Fotini is the founder of non-profit organization,
Red Barn Wellness Farm, which is a supportive space for self-discovery through
contemplative practice and the way of the Horse. For more information about
