Born and raised in Vancouver, Sadira has utilized her beautiful province as a space to learn about coexisting with nature through meditative practices as well as using her environment in her fitness routines, such as running, hiking and cycling. She has been practicing yoga for a decade and hopes one day to return to her martial arts practice. Sadira found massage in 2013 by exploring career options and came across a weekend workshop at a massage school, which would be her first exposure to massage. She immediately felt that the time and space to focus on the body and breath provided by a massage treatment was unique and the act of giving massage felt natural to her hands.
Sadira spent a summer in 2016 tree planting in interior British Columbia which was when she suffered an SI joint injury which brought her into a deeply intimate place with her body. By the end of that Summer, she made the decision to start taking steps towards a career in wellness and pursued her yoga teacher training in 2016. She has spent many years in the service industry and landscaping before teaching yoga and volunteering at studios and clinics. After going through her own injury, she gained belief and understanding that touch is a very natural and instinctual way of regenerating and connecting that has been somewhat lost. Sadira graduated from the 2200-hour program at Vancouver College of Massage Therapy in December 2019.
