Yin & Nidra


The Class

This class combines our Yin practice with some Yoga Nidra practice. Yin Yoga is the slower complement to the Yang (active) yoga styles. This yoga targets the connective tissues of the body – tendons, ligaments, fascia, and even the bones themselves – by holding postures for a longer duration than one would deem ‘comfortable’. Due to these longer holds (usually 2-5 minutes), you will probably do no more than a handful of postures in the average class. A great practice for cultivating stillness, while also improving circulation and hydration to our more often neglected areas of the body. Yoga Nidra is a specific guided meditation. Following a similar structure each time, the Nidra practice is one of complete physical stillness as the teacher guides you through a body scan before turning your attention inward. A great practice to help with relaxation, your Nidra practice provides space for you to connect to your inner self as we quiet the mind and focus on our deepest heartfelt desires (sankalpas). This practice is for everybody, and you cannot practice Yoga Nidra incorrectly. Bring your most comfortable clothes, blanket, eye pillow, crystals, intentions, journal, etc…

The Teachers



Pauline has lived in Lethbridge for over 10 years. Originally from Calgary, she moved to Lethbridge to complete her BFA at the U of L. Her plan was to leave shortly after completing her degree, but opportunities continued to arise that allowed her to remain in the city. She grew up in Bragg Creek, and spent her time outdoors, camping, skiing, and hiking. She fell in love with yoga 9 years ago – the 26&2 class kicked her butt, and she loved every minute of it. Off to training the following year, and more trainings in the subsequent years. She is trained in Bikram (26&2), Power Vinyasa Flow, Yin, Buti, and Ashtanga/Rocket.

Yoga was never something that Pauline thought she would enjoy – she had the idea that it was too easy, too slow, that it wasn’t enough for her. And after taking her first class, she was quickly proven wrong. The yoga can be challenging, but also incredible. It opens you up to new things in your body, as well as your mind. It’s a connection that is truly unique to everyone, and it’s really beautiful.

Although Pauline can’t get most of her family members to practice yoga when they visit the city, her amazing fiancé, Cam, can be seen around the studio all the time. Pauline is thrilled to be part-owner of Harvest Yoga Studio with Jess, and is looking forward to future adventures together as business partners and lovers of yoga.



Born and raised in Lethbridge, Jen first landed on her mat almost 25 years ago and has been practicing here with the Harvest community since 2014. Sometimes more athletic and at other times a more meditative practice, yoga has been a steadying and grounding influence in her life. Her love for the practice continues to grow every year.


I first came to yoga for a good stretch to complement my days spent playing soccer and running. I was hooked as the practice was a perfect balance of challenge, ease and fun, which left me feeling confident and strong. Over the years my practice has ebbed and flowed with the changes in life. It has taught me patience, compassion, and awareness to myself and others. I am so grateful to have found yoga. Learning how to become aware of the nervous system, the mind, the breath and how they all connect has been fascinating. I’m a forever student who enjoys geeking out over the human body. I hope to share a little bit of what I’ve learnt mixed in with some joy for the practice.  




Her yoga mat is a place that reminds her of the Choose Your Own Adventure books from when she was a kid. Sometimes it reveals much, sometimes it offers straight up play and joy, sometimes it humbles her. She has been blessed with teachers who illuminated how to strive living open to grace and gratitude, filled with awe and wonder, on and off the mat.


Born and raised in Calgary, AB, Dianne is the youngest of 6 kids. As a little girl, she was always intrigued about what was below the surface of things and how they worked. Dianne was always a caregiver, a gift-giver, and a wandering inquisitive soul. She has always been fascinated with the body and how it functions, so naturally in her 16th year as a Massage Therapist, she STILL loves her job. Every chance she gets, Dianne continues with schooling, upgrading, or learning a new skill or craft to add to her working “tool belt’. She first tried yoga 20 years ago, but it wasn’t her time to fully immerse into it. She dabbled in various classes over the years, but in 2017 she felt the call to return to yoga. When she took her first 26 & 2 hot class, she was hooked! Not only did she soon realize the physical benefits but the emotional/mental benefits, as well.

During the pandemic, never one to shy away from a challenge, she enrolled and completed her 200 hour yoga teacher training, Yin Yoga training, and an AFLCA exercise theory & group exercise, cycle certification. She is currently in training for her Yoga Nidra certification. To Dianne, her experience is to be passionate about what you do and to remember to listen to your inner wisdom, as it will always lead you to amazing places.

She is passionate about writing, and loves the great outdoors – camping, all-things paddling, biking, hiking with her family and 2 pups – as well as making home-made things (renos included).
