Ruthie Anderson on Yoga, Gender, Health and Healing at the White Ribbon Conference


Ruthie Anderson will lead conference attendees through a Yoga Stretch break at their seats, at the mid-afternoon point of the ‘What Makes a Man’ White Ribbon Conference at Ryerson University. Ruthie will help us stretch after a day of amazing conversation and discuss intersections of Healing Mind, Body and Soul as we move into a section of the conference looking at how gender impacts our connection to health, healing and nutrition.

Ruthie Anderson is a 3rd year nursing student that has adopted yoga into her life from a very young age. Having practiced yoga for its numerous mind, body and spiritual benefits for over 8 years, she became a Registered Yoga Teacher through Moksana Yoga Centre in Victoria, BC in 2008. Her belief in preventative medicine coupled with social justice has led her to teaching experiences at the Ryerson Womens Centre and at Spirit Wind Internal Arts on a donation basis.
