HATHA

A practice that is great for beginners as well as advanced practitioners. This practice places emphasis is on longer, static holds, more depth in each pose and less flow-based movement while exploring variations and modifications. This practice will help you to gain a clearer understanding of alignment. Standing, seated and lying postures will be incorporated in the class to challenge balance, strength and flexibility.
RECOMMENDED FOR BEGINNERS | 45 TO 60 MINUTES

GENTLE

Slow down and give yourself a chance to breathe! This class will focus on gentle full body movement from reclined, kneeling and seated positions. The second half of the class includes longer yin-style holds. Perfect for winding down before bedtime! This class is perfect for beginners, those with limited mobility or anyone looking to wind down their day with some slow movement! RECOMMENDED FOR BEGINNERS | 60 MINUTES
 

YIN

While “yang” yoga focuses on your muscles, yin yoga targets your deep connective tissues, like your fascia, ligaments, joints, and bones. It’s slower and more meditative, giving you space to turn inward and tune into both your mind and the physical sensations of your body. Because you’re holding poses for a longer period of time than you would in other traditional types of yoga, yin yoga helps you stretch and lengthen those rarely-used tissues while also teaching you how to breathe through discomfort and sit with your thoughts. RECOMMENDED FOR BEGINNERS | 60 MINUTES
 

RESTORATIVE

Restorative classes offer a supported practice that uses many props to allow for each pose to be held for several minutes and ensure complete relaxation into the pose. These longer holds help release tension and stress in the body, lengthen the muscles, lower the heart rate and calm the nervous system, while helping us return to more natural breathing patterns and deeper levels of rest.
RECOMMENDED FOR BEGINNERS | 60 MINUTES

BARRE

Barre is a blend of pilates, ballet and yoga, focusing on enhancing strength, posture, balance and toning the full body. This dynamic class includes full body movements, barre work, stretches and core exercises. Most exercises will focus on isometric strength training, holding your body still while contracting a specific set of muscles, combined with high reps of small range-of-motion movements. Light handheld weights or ankle weights might also be incorporated to bring the burn during all those reps.
*Note: This class requires a yoga mat.
SOME EXPERIENCE RECOMMENDED | 45 TO 60 MINUTES

YOGA SCULPT

Hand weights add a new challenge to a traditional yoga flow class. This class includes resistance training exercises to help strengthen and tone the whole body. The class incorporates flow, weight lifting with repetitions and pulses to help increase lean muscle mass and improve circulation, and there’s always a challenging core workout mixed in!
SOME EXPERIENCE RECOMMENDED | 45-60 MINUTES

 

CORE + BACK

This class is designed to strengthen your core, release tight back muscles and improve back health. This multi-level class is designed to effectively engage and work the core and support our spine, while strengthening, lengthening and stretching the body.
SOME EXPERIENCE RECOMMENDED | 45 TO 60 MINUTES

YOGA FOUNDATIONS

This class is perfect for beginners, yogis getting back into their practice or even seasoned practitioners who want to review the basics. RECOMMENDED FOR BEGINNERS | 45 - 60 MINUTES 
 
This class will include: 
  • basic meditation/breath awareness practice 
  • a focus on common, entry level poses and alignment
  • Sun salutation breakdown
  • The use of props to support/modify

FLOW

Vinyasa is a flowing, dynamic form of yoga linking breath to movement. Considered to be a ‘moving meditation’ this practice is designed to calm the mind while strengthening the muscles and cardiovascular system. This is an invigorating practice meant to increase balance and strength through a series of standing and seated postures.
SOME EXPERIENCE RECOMMENDED | 45-60 MINUTES

YANG/YIN

Class begins with an active and dynamic Yang style flow to warm up and invigorate the body. Then the Yin portion focuses on long held passive poses to open up and stretch the body and slow down the mind. A fine balance between yang + yin provides a holistic balance to the mind and body.
RECOMMENDED FOR BEGINNERS | 60 TO 60 MINUTES

HIPS + SHOULDERS

Experience a combination of flowing and static movements in this practice that will help gain flexibility and an increased range of motion through your hips and shoulders; two areas that we tend to store tension. Focus is on stretching the major muscles that cross the shoulder and hip joints to relieve this built up tension and leave you feeling refreshed!
RECOMMENDED FOR BEGINNERS | 45 TO 60 MINUTES

WHAT MOTIVATES YOU TO TEACH?
The students! I love helping people realize some nourishment for both the mind and body through yoga. Yoga is an amazing tool that carries off the mat and into life quite beautifully, I am so grateful to be a part of that.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR CLASS STYLE?
I like to be flowy and creative with my classes. I think that a healthy balance of challenge, movement and zen can provide the perfect space to find presence in ones practice and distance from (or at very least recognition of) the ego.

Jessica Reimer

Jessica Reimer has been facilitating movement and connection for over 15 years. She has 500+ hours of certified yoga teacher training and with a bachelor degree in social work she has spent her years working with and learning about the lived experiences of others. Since completing her yoga teacher training, Jessica has taught yoga in a variety of settings, integrating her knowledge of movement, breath and human experience. While her heart-based facilitation style offers a vast toolkit of change strategies, she has found breath, movement and mediation to be the most effective in shifting internal patterns that keep people “stuck”. She specializes in creating experiences that invite participants into deeper self-exploration. No matter what the setting her commitment to personal growth, movement, community and social equity influence her practice. The goal is to acknowledge the experience, focus the mind, love the body and call forth the highest version of Self.

Shannon Taylor

Growing up, my family was always camping, motorbiking, hiking, swimming, I definitely had an active childhood. I did dance, synchronized swimming and snowboarding, which then led me to yoga. I’ve worked in the fitness industry for over 15 years and have taken various trainings including Ashtanga Yoga, Pilates, Barre and Personal training.   What I love most is the connection I make with strong like-minded people through movement and music.

Savannah Nocera

I started my journey with yoga in a hot class with my sister about 14 years ago. I could not handle the heat and I layed there the entire time waiting for it to be over! 3 years later I gave it another shot and I loved it. Somehow it was like I had never really felt alive in my own body before.  I kept up a pretty rigorous practice for around 6 years exploring many variations of Hatha, Ashtanga, Vinyasa and Bikram. In 2015 I got pregnant with my first son and decided I needed to take my 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training before mommy life took over. It changed everything for me. Yoga was not just a physical practice anymore but a way of life.
From that training on I had my sweet boy and then another in 2018. In my home and in balance with my family life I developed a home practice which includes; waking up as early as I can before the kids wake up, doing a 30-60 minute Hatha practice, a 30-60 minute breathwork and meditation practice and reading and studying as much as I can.
As my kids began to grow less dependent on me I decided at the beginning of 2020 to further my training. In February I began a 100 Hour Yoga Adjusters Training. This was to get me back into the yoga community, refresh my vocabulary and queuing and broaden my knowledge of modifying postures.  I recently completed my 20 hour Yin Yoga Training and I feel confident that I could teach a variety of practices, Hatha, Yang/Yin, Yin or a Flow (preferably gentle as it’s more my speed but I’m up for anything).  I am excited to begin teaching and sharing what I have learned over the years.

Jeanne Barry

Jeanne Barry was born and raised in Cape Town, South Africa. She grew up dancing and has taken ballet, Irish, modern, hip hop, highland, African, tango, and more. As someone who found the gym extremely boring, Jeanne started attending barre at Ballet Beats in 2016 as a way to “trick” herself into working out, and loved the dance-based workout so much, she became a barre teacher. In addition to dance, Jeanne loves reading, travel, true crime, and animals.

Jenna Rene

Jenna Rene is a Canadian Yoga teacher with a strong will to motivate and inspire people to live mindfully, ethically and purposefully.  Carrying a deep passion for travel, love for the earth and for people, Jenna enjoys exploring what the world has to offer.

For Jenna, Yoga is something that a person discovers in his/her/their own way. She believes that the journey of personal discovery through Yoga is taken at its own pace and should be embraced in mind, body, and spirit.

Her favorite style of Yoga is Yin, although Yang Styles of yoga will always hold a special place in her heart (particularly Vinyasa!), she can’t help but be drawn to the calming and healing engery a Yin class can provide.

“I can’t begin to explain how much yoga means to me. Since earning my yoga teacher certification, Yoga has become a part of me. It is not only an incredibly healing, nourishing and giving practice for the body but also for your mind.  Trying to describe what yoga is seems like an impossible task. I truly believe yoga must be experienced and discovered differently by each individual. Not one of us is the same in mind or body and thus our lives and yoga practice will always look different. Yoga for myself has grown from a personal journey, a curiosity, a seed, from just embracing the love of movement as a child, it has now grown into a beautiful tree. I have had to spend countless hours watering, pruning and tending to this tree. Now that it has a strong trunk, a sturdy base, it can bear and share its fruit with you!”

Shacarra Orr

Shacarra moved to Calgary from Jaffray, B.C. for university. She is currently studying her Masters of Counselling Psychology at City University. Shacarra has been an athlete her entire life. Her greatest accomplishment was competing in the Rio 2016 Paralympics in Sitting Volleyball. Following a car accident she has been left with a permanent injury to her right arm. Shacarra is passionate about accessibility for all people and incorporates this into her yoga classes. When retiring from the Paralympics she was looking for a new sport she could practice alone and make accessible for her unique body, this is when she found Yoga.

Sarah Koury

Sarah has been practicing yoga for most of her life, as it provides a constant source of grounding, health and well-being. As a RYT, her aim is to pay this forward – making yoga accessible when you harness the wisdom of mindfulness into movement. Her intention is to cultivate a yoga space for many body types, levels of experience and states of mind – come as you are. What can you expect in class? Functional mobility, creative sequencing, strength -building & meditative breath-work; for the body, mind & spirit.

Mija Lee

WHAT MOTIVATES YOU TO TEACH?
I always strive to help others grow through yoga because I believe in the positive impact it has on life by bringing balance, and by nourishing the body, mind and soul. My hope is that when you step off your mat that you feel invigorated, balanced and ready to challenge the world.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR CLASS STYLE?
I love teaching Power yoga with many variations so that the practice is accessible to all. I also love to teach Flow yoga with creative sequencing which motivates people to explore playful and innovative yoga.

IF SOMEONE ASKED YOU FOR RANDOM PIECE OF ADVICE, WHAT WOULD YOU SAY?
The end result is a reflection of the effort applied.


Tracy Ward-Sickel

I have been practicing yoga for almost 20 years and became certified in 2007. For me, yoga is about the freedom you experience on and off the mat. My practice is a time to put everything else on hold and connect to myself. The heightened awareness I experience through my practice is what continues to draw me to my mat and makes every other aspect of my life better. My passion is to share the positive effects yoga has had upon my life in hopes of continuing this positive effect among others.

Marzena Wojcik

WHAT MOTIVATES YOU TO TEACH?
Knowing I help motivate and guide students to self-discovery and building a supportive community inspires me to inspire.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR CLASS STYLE?
Calming, relaxing but yet energizing! Heart themes and mindfulness techniques are intertwined in my classes as students can learn how they can apply what they learn on the mat, off the mat.

IF SOMEONE ASKED YOU FOR RANDOM PIECE OF ADVICE, WHAT WOULD YOU SAY?
Make time for you! Reflect and learn about yourself and who you truly are and want in life.

Carolyn Cameron

WHAT MOTIVATES YOU TO TEACH?
Being in service to others as they discover the benefits of a yoga practice. I love helping people step out of the hectic pace of their lives and build connections to their bodies and breath. Seeing students experience the physical and emotional benefits of yoga is the reason I teach.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR CLASS STYLE?
I like to give a lot of directional cues and offer modifications for poses to keep students safe and feeling comfortable. My style is energetic but structured and we typically work through a series of progressive movements that lead up to a pinnacle pose.
I encourage you to smile, breathe and stay in the moment during your practice! ​

Cassaundra Henske

Cassaundra has been practicing yoga, meditation and breathwork for over 10 years. 

A Social Worker by profession, Cassaundra has a deep love for helping folks connect to their own strengths and personal agency while also fostering a close connection to community. Additionally, Cassaundra brings a trauma-informed approach to her practice. 

In addition to yoga, Cassaundra has a passion for spending time outdoors and cycling. Fun fact: During the summer of 2020, Cassaundra and her partner cycled from Calgary, Alberta all the way to Gaspe, Quebec!

It was important to Cassaundra to learn from the roots of yoga and to find a teacher training that included a holistic lens as well as ancient yogic wisdom. For those reasons, Cassaundra chose Akhanda Yoga Institute to do her YTT-200 hour training, with a focus on holistic yoga and breathwork. Simply put, this means that Cassaundra is committed to supporting you to bring the many aspects of yoga to your asana practice as well as your day to day life!

Jahaan Premji

WHAT MOTIVATES YOU TO TEACH?

I am motivated by the idea of making yoga -and yogic philosophy – accessible to everyone. I am so in love with connecting with students, with witnessing the change in energy within the studio as we move and breathe together, and in helping others find the beauty in this practice.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR CLASS STYLE?

My classes focus on connecting posture with the breath. No one class is alike, but they all incorporate elements of pranayama, meditation, and flow-based sequencing in specific themes. All levels can find a home in my classes!

Emily Neuheimer

WHAT MOTIVATES YOU TO TEACH?
To share the yoga practice.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR CLASS STYLE?
The style of classic hatha. Each class follows a meditative flow with emphasis on safety and breathing. The majority of the class focuses on asanas (physical postures in yoga) but also incorporates meditation and breathing techniques.

IF SOMEONE ASKED YOU FOR RANDOM PIECE OF ADVICE, WHAT WOULD YOU SAY?
“Follow your bliss”

Vanessa Stewart

WHAT MOTIVATES YOU TO TEACH

I love encouraging people to feel confident in their own skin and to connect mind to body. Feeling confident and comfortable in your body is such a powerful tool that you carry with you outside of the studio. Also I love creating a fire playlist that makes you wanna dance and move!

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR CLASS STYLE?

Fun, high energy, sweaty. I love teaching barre, yoga sculpt & flow type classes.  I always make sure there’s enough time to stretch out our muscles at the end of class though! I also love a good gentle stretch class to really relax and lengthen out the body.

IF SOMEONE ASKED YOU FOR RANDOM PIECE OF ADVICE, WHAT WOULD YOU SAY?
Get a dog, ASAP.
