Hi everyone, my name is Aimee Pudifin and I grew up just outside of Alliston in Rosemont, Ontario. This is how the whole Backwoods name came about. My yoga journey began here and it is where I have chosen to settle and build my business, making the name a great fit for me.
My professional career began after obtaining my Degree in Kinesiology and Diploma in Fitness & Health Promotion. About a year after graduation I took a position at a multi-disciplinary clinic in Alliston. Eventually, I came to realize that my purpose in the health field was meant to go beyond just physical rehabilitation.
In January of 2018 I traveled to Costa Rica where I spent 3 intensive weeks at the Nexus Institute obtaining my 200 hour yoga teacher certification. I had a passion for yoga for a couple of years prior to the training and realized this could be my way to integrate various aspects of health (mind, body & spiritual) as well as injury prevention in to one practice.
Now I am teaching in a small, shared space in Alliston, where I genuinely hope I have the honour of hosting you sometime.
