What can students expect from your class? Students can expect a playful, challenging, and accessible alignment-based practice with an emphasis on breath.

About me: I took my first yoga class at the age of 14 with Jasmina Egeler and the practice has been a part of my life since then. I have a background in diving and I was surprised by how similar the experiences I had in the ocean matched those on the mat. I am always humbled by all the things that come up when I practice, and how with discipline, and an attention to breath we can navigate discomfort with a greater sense of ease. I started my journey with YYoga as a guest then I started working as a staff member and a few years later I completed my teacher training with them, it has always felt like a family to me. I like fiery yet grounding classes that have both stability and fluidity embedded in them.

About Alia:
My name is Alia and I am a yoga teacher with a Masters degree in Social Work and Mental health, teaching & practicing yoga alongside my full time clinical counseling practice. I have been practicing and studying yoga, meditation, nutrition, and psychology for twelve years in pursuit of ways we can live healthier, happier and more fulfilling lives. Through practice, I believe we can overcome stress, anxiety, grief and depression. As an Indian woman, I am fascinated by the roots of yoga, and completed my 500 hour training in Varanasi, India while living there in 2009. I feel passionate about creating inclusive spaces for diverse students to be a part of and challenging structures of society that confine us from participating or showing up as fully embodied, free individuals.

What should students expect from your classes?
Expect a strong, deep practice that moves slow and mindfully. I cue just alignment and breath, then leave you to experience presence in your practice.

About Ali:
I’ve been practicing yoga for a decade and have a deep love and reverence for the Yogic path. I’ve had the privilege to teach yoga locally and abroad for the past eight years and have a background in trauma-informed mental health work. I believe that yoga, breath-work and meditation are profound tools to aid us in balancing the nervous system and cultivating a strong relationship between our minds, bodies and spirits. With devoted practice, we can transform inner blockages to align with the transformative strength, wisdom and self-healing that we all innately possess. My intention is to assist you to carve out the space and time to develop a deep sense of listening and presence that will support and carry you throughout your life.”

What should students expect from your classes?
A dynamic, fluid and grounded practice that remains tethered to the breath and anatomically based alignment. Students are encouraged to make the practice their own and find the freedom to authentically express themselves and find release. I weave in layers of depth by leading a class that honours the historical lineage of yoga and principles of philosophy, psychology and mysticism through precise and poignant language.

What should students expect from your class?

Students will breath, elongate, sculpt, strengthen, and stretch in this multi-level low impact Mat Pilates/Ballet Sculpt movement sequence.

About Me

I am a born teacher, loving mother of three, and lifelong learner. I have taught as a schoolteacher for over 20 years, and private piano teacher for 12 years. I have always loved moving! I trained as a ballet dancer in my childhood, took up long distance running as a young adult, and skate skiing in my thirties.

I found Pilates in 2009, after suffering a back injury that would not heal using traditional rehabilitation methods. I immediately appreciated having ownership over my healing as I was guided through the Pilates repertoire. In addition to healing my back, I noticed how my dedicated bi-weekly Pilates training greatly improved my posture, core strength, balance, anxiety, coordination and prevented injury while I pursued my outdoor passions of running and skiing.

Bringing together my love of Teaching with that of Pilates, I started my Pilates Teacher Training in 2019, earning a Pilates Mat Diploma from Physical Mind Institute Canada, and Pilates Mat Instructor Certification through Balanced Body Education. I continue my training with Balanced Body Education on the Pilates Apparatus’, as well as attend workshops offered by local Pilates studios.

What should students expect from your class?

A strong and fluid practice that allows students to explore new ways to move and connect with the mind, body and spirit, all with a fun playlist!

About Me

Coming from an extensive dance background, yoga has always been a supplemental practice for me for over a decade. I specifically gravitated towards hot and power styles of yoga because of the challenge that resonates with me. I have been a professional dancer for the past 13 years and currently branching into the choreography and acting world. I’m grateful to have chosen a path which I love deeply. I have been a part of the YYOGA community for several years now, but it was when I came back home from living abroad in 2019 when I decided to take my 200 hour training with YYOGA. I’m also certified in yin and currently doing my pilates certification. I believe in different forms of movement and how they can all connect. In my classes, I tend to bring a fun, challenging and creative practice incorporating various elements of movement that connects the student with themselves. Yoga, to me, is about self-discovery and self-development and I aim to share that practice with my students.

About Me

I fell in love with yoga during my first class and have been practicing ever since. The physical, mental, & spiritual benefits of the practice became an integral part of my life on and off the mat, and teaching was the next step in giving back to the nourishing yoga community. During the pandemic, I took my 200 Hour YTT – a really rewarding and meaningful journey during a challenging time. I specialize in YHot, Flow & Hatha styles, and incorporate elements of nature, self-love & gratitude.

What should students expect from your class?

A lighthearted, thoughtful and dynamic exploration of shapes and breath guided by music to fuel your movement.

About Me

I took my first class in 2003 and quickly found, in the busyness of life, a challenging practice of coming home to myself. Over the years yoga has invited me to come back to the present moment, breathe through tension and grief, increase mobility and flexibility, and build strength. After many years of classes, workshops, and trainings, I began teaching in 2019.

My teaching is influenced and informed by many lineages and modalities including Vinyasa, Flow, Vinyasa Krama, Hatha, Restorative, Iyengar, Anusara, Movement Method, Mindfulness, and Pranayama. My classes are creative and intentional. Each breath, each movement is an opportunity to find balance – between strength and softness, form and function, rigidity and fluidity. I am passionate about daily movement on and off the mat and sharing yoga in community is my favorite way to explore the ways we can move through the world.

An opportunity to explore, play, and practice what will help you off the mat.

About Me

I bring to all my classes clear and precise cues, creative sequencing, uplifting ideas, and… myself. I am a cat mama who loves dance and cake, and learning everyday what it means to live a heart-centred life. For every class I teach, I aim to show up fully as myself and ensure that all students feel seen.

I am deeply grateful to my friend who convinced me to try my first yoga class in my early 20’s. Over the years, I have practiced in all sorts of weird spaces and with different teachers from diverse backgrounds. I found that the teachers I kept going back to created a space where I could feel protected enough – free enough – to fully let go and dive deeper. Now in my 7th year of teaching, I hope that I can do the same, and make each class a welcoming space for introspection and exploration.

I completed my 200 Hour Training with Semperviva in 2016, and in addition to short trainings for hands-on assists, Ayurveda, myth, and mantra, I am also working on my 300 Hour Vinyasa Training with Clara Roberts-Oss.

Expect a safe space to explore and play, as we connect to our body, mind and spirit.

About Me

I am a Physical Therapist, Strength and Conditioning Coach and Yoga Instructor in Richmond British Columbia. Empowering and helping others move is one of my biggest passions. My love for movement has always been two-fold – I love to move my own body, but I also love to watch others move.

I found yoga in 2010 and I never looked back. It started out as another “workout” and quickly transformed and expanded into all aspects of my life. The “Yin” quality of this practice, balanced out my “Yang”- dominant personality and lifestyle. The mat became my place of stability and gratitude. In 2015 I pursued my teacher training to share this powerful practice with others.

My classes are grounded on proper body alignment, stability, mind-muscle connection and motor control. My goal is to help students gain strength, mobility and balance as they connect physically and spiritually to their higher self.
