It's all about community


I am very passionate about yoga on all levels - physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Our physical form is amazing and has the innate ability to heal itself but we sometimes struggle with the how. Yoga supports us physically and energetically and helps us back to being balanced and healthful. 

Having my own yoga studio helps to fulfill my  vision of making yoga accessible to every body. There is no one size fits all - we are all individuals with individual needs. We have classes in a variety of styles and compassionate teachers who are excited to guide you along your yoga journey.

Humans thrive when they are part of a group of like-minded people. The Highlands Yoga Room is a place where all people are welcome to experience yoga in a safe and inviting space. We look forward to seeing you on the mat!

Meet Our Teachers


Kyra Kubrak

500-hour E-YT, Usui Reiki Master, Violet Flame Reiki Master, Chakra Therapist

My approach to yoga is to be sensitive of the body, heart, and mind. By simply coming to our mats and breathing consciously, perhaps working with postures and perhaps not, we can begin to create a space where we feel safe and calm. When we can be more focused and start to let go of the world beyond our mat (even for just 5 minutes), we can begin to inhabit ourselves – not just passively noticing our breath and body but really feeling our breath and body. Then slowly we learn to how to take the feelings we create on the mat, off the mat and out into the world.

Isabel Negrete Fry

RYT 200

I'm absolutely passionate about yoga and wellness!

I have been practicing for 20 years and after taking my first 200 hour training, my passion only grew stronger and I felt called to share yoga with everybody around me. My classes are for both the new yogi and the experienced one. I believe that our breath can heal and transform us. I also truly believe yoga to be a path to enlightenment and that it should be accessible to everyone.

I am certified in Yoga Nidra, Yin Yoga, Pre- and Post-Natal Yoga, Rainbow Kids Yoga. I am a Reiki attuned practitioner as well as a Barre Teacher.

My mission is to inspire, educate, and empower others to awaken to their true selves and have a fulfilling life they love. I use techniques to elicit insights and unearth deeper truths buried under automatic patterning.

From this sacred container, a powerful opportunity emerges to transcend blocks, connect with your innate wisdom, and found the purpose-driven life you desire.

Lauren Thomas

YT 200

Each of the clases Lauren teaches are intended to be accessible, lighthearted, and in alignment with your own health.
Her personal practise began as a way to process the difficulties inherent in life and led her to study yoga in India at the age of 19.
She is aware that health can look and feel a variety of ways and encourages inward reflection by noticing your body's innate wisdom. She truly believes each person is their own best teacher. She is honoured to share a yoga practise with the company of others and loves to learn along beside you.
Lauren also loves permaculture, growing food, cooking, hiking, dancing, climbing, and tea.
She recently was trained in Thai massage and looks forward to the extra support it can provide her fellow yogis.

Marianne Baron

300-hour E-YT

My personal yoga practice began about 25 years ago when I needed a low-impact form of exercise. Beyond the physical benefits, I stayed with it because of the numerous benefits, not the least of which was better sleep! I completed my training with Gerda Krebs in 2000 and continue to attend workshops and classes on a regular basis. I love to teach to beginners and I also have experience teaching Yin, Pre/Post Natal Yoga, kids, teens, and family yoga. I believe that laughter is a necessary component of a yoga class.

One of the things I most enjoy about teaching beginners is watching students become more aware of their bodies. There are an amazing moments in our practice when our unconscious movements and patterns become conscious. I love to hear about your ‘a-ha!’ moments.

I am passionate about energetic modalities and have trained in Reiki, Reflexology, and Energy Medicine.

Did you know that 60% of your lung capacity is in the back body? Or that the word 'spleen' comes from Ancient Greek and means good hearted or compassionate? M'Organ has the answers to these questions and any others you may have about the body's organs.


Dani Promo in Canola Field

Daniela Bahry

I realized early on in my life that I loved to draw, paint, skate and dance. I believe and feel that as an artist, I create from inspiration and love, of what is around me. Nature inspires me, in particular images of florals, trees and landscapes as well as wildlife.  I am still forever playing with methods and ideas of pieces of art I want to do create.

Recently I collaborated with poet Makda Mulatu and painted more abstract imagery to give a visual compliment to her beautiful on self love and bravery!

I hope my pieces that I create, connect with people a sense of joy and love. Every painting has its story that I love to share.
