Yin

NON-HEATED

The Class

Yin Yoga directs the stimulation normally created in the asana portion of the practice deeper than the superficial or muscular tissues. It targets the connective tissues, such as the ligaments, bones, and even the joints of the body that normally are not exercised very much in a more active style of asana practice. Suitable for all levels of students, Yin Yoga is a perfect complement to the dynamic and muscular (yang) styles of yoga that emphasize internal heat, and the lengthening and contracting of our muscles. Yin Yoga generally targets the connective tissues of the hips, pelvis, and lower spine.

OWNER, TEACHER, AND PRACTITIONER

Pauline

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 fell in love with yoga 11 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 years that followed. She is trained in Bikram (26&2), Power Vinyasa Flow, Vinyasa, Yin, Buti, Ashtanga/Rocket, and Nidra.

Although Pauline can’t get most of her family members to practice yoga when they visit the city, her amazing husband, Cam, can be seen around the studio all the time, helping our team, and ready to chat with everyone he sees.

Kendall

Kendall is a massage therapy student, substitute teacher, kinesiology grad and movement enthusiast. She was born and raised in Scarborough, Ontario, a suburb in Toronto. She is fascinated with the human body and craves “in the flow” experiences.  While playing soccer at university, she was looking for a way to loosen up tight hips and ankles, as well as prevent future injuries – that lead her to a hot room at Moksha Yoga London in 2007. It was love at first sweat!

She has trained with the Moksha/Modo International faculty and Ryan Leier and the One Yoga faculty, as well as smaller trainings with Eoin Finn of Blissology, Alan Mileham, Mark Stephens, and YogaFit  International. Her studies include hatha, vinyasa, ashtanga, vinyasa krama, Iyengar, yin, myofascial yoga, prenatal, aerial, mindfulness and kid’s yoga.

TEACHER AND PRACTITIONER

Shonna

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.

Nora

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.

Dianne

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).

Patty

I was raised on a farm in Wrentham, AB. I attended university in Utah at BYU. While I was earning my bachelors degree I gained a passion for outdoor recreation. Rock climbing , mountain biking, backpacking and water sports are the things I choose to do whenever I get the chance. I have 5 awesome kids and an amazing husband. We love to go on adventures together! I started practicing yoga in April 2018. Admittedly I initially came to the studio under duress. The friends I workout with wanted to add yoga to our workout and running routine. I agreed to give yoga try after a frustrating string of fitness related injuries. I survived my first class which was 26 & 2. I was pleasantly surprised with how good I felt … after it was over. I have been coming regularly ever since. I may have started practicing yoga for the physical benefits but I was amazed at the effect it had on my mental well being. Taking time away from the stresses of my day and allowing myself some guilt free “me” time has been just the thing I needed to gain and maintain a positive outlook on life.
