It's all about community


I am very passionate about yoga, both the physical practice and beyond. The body is an amazing system that has the ability to heal itself but often needs support from the outside and I believe that yoga is part of that healing system for the soul, mind and body. 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. I'm also a huge believer in community. Humans thrive when they are part of a community of like-minded people. Welcome to our community.

Kyra Kubrak

200-hour E-YT, 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.

Andrea Jones

BscRN,  Certified Thai Massage Therapist, Certified Meditation Instructor, Reiki Master

For more than a decade I have worked within the health care system as a registered nurse. My profession changed my perspective on life and what I value. It made me realize how rich and fragile life can be. Through my own journey of health and being an intimate witness to other's journeys I realized that we need to do more to help people live rich, full, self empowered lives. I began to broaden my training to allow me to work with individuals on a more integrative level. I combine my western health knowledge with my ever growing integrative training to bridge the gap that exists in our current healthcare system.

Christy Gallagher

200-hour YT

Coming to her mat has always been a source of peace, contentment and strength for Christy. Nurturing those qualities outside of the studio is what she believes is fundamental to her life. Having experienced illness and injury has deepened Christy's practice, ushering in empowerment through healing the mind, body and soul. It’s through this exploration that she’s gained the insights and inspiration to share with others.
After 10 years of yoga practice, Christy completed her 200-hour Teacher Training through the SATTVA School of Yoga in Calgary.

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 Belize 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.


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.

Shakti Akal

Shakti Akal / Lareina

220-hour Kundalini Research Institute, Level One certified instructor

My yoga journey began in 2005. I was introduced to Kundalini Yoga in 2013. I remember my first class like it was yesterday...”I have no idea what I am chanting but there is something to this.” Over the years that I attended classes a deep yearning grew to understand more about this different style of yoga. I decided to take the level one Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training in 2018.
Kundalini Yoga is often referred to as the yoga of awareness and I can’t really express it any better than that. Through classes, workshops and teacher training I began to wake up. Kundalini yoga shifted the way I think, made me more conscious, helps me be a better version of myself and taught me how to be my own friend. It is a very sacred practice. Although my original intent in taking yoga teacher training was not to teach. I quickly realized that this practice has the ability to help many souls and that it needs to be shared with the world. I feel very honoured to be able to share it with you.

Kevin Gaudet

200-hour RYT

For Kevin, yoga is the practice of life. It provides the method, training ground and reality for fully and consciously moving through the world, for encountering all of life's twists and turns with grace, intelligence and respect. To have the opportunity to develop precision and discrimination as this reflection is observed is something Kevin intends to make the most of and one he feels all should have equal access to put to practice. He enjoys communicating his contemplations and reflections in a variety of posture class types - foundations, restorative, dynamic - each having their own unique value for self-discovery. His specialty is combing gongs and other instruments to create sound baths, which are combined with the practice of Yoga Nidra and meditation.
