" I am thankful for my first Bikram Yoga practice in 2007 in Vancouver that has ultimately change the course of my life. With a background of Sports Medicine and a history of being a young competitive athlete myself, I found the passion in teaching what I deeply understand. The muscle work and the chain reaction that every intentional breath, posture or movement can stimulate is fascinating!"

" My first encounter with Hot Yoga was in 2007 when I walked into a Bikram Yoga class in Vancouver. I have from then found other styles of Yoga, Pilates and BodyART all of which has kept me very intuitive , challenged and most importantly balanced in my physical and mental health. My goal is to provide a platform for others to do the same, without any pressure of having to look, feel or be a certain way. Teaching is a joy to me especially when students walk out with a new found or renewed determination to do something amazing in their life!"

OUR MISSION

To empower our students with knowledge of their own physical body and teach them the ability to take their own practice to the next level of understanding safely and wisely.

To educate the importance of breath and mindfulness when practicing all movement class and postures by learning to first understand the uniqueness of each physical body framework without self judgement or competition.

To share the secret of going through the experience of just "being" by exploring your own potential and embracing the union between body and mind which is ultimately Yoga and life!

To enhance the quality of life by providing a multiple level platform of Yoga and movement classes designed to promote a healthy body and a flexible mind.
