“It is said in Martial Arts that when we reach the highest skill levels, it ceases to be a physical practice and transforms into a spiritual practice. For Yoga, the more Asanas I commit to muscle memory, the more present I become and the more I experience the true spiritual side of the Art.” – David Lau

Hillary Mastrodicasa

Hillary has been a student of movement for as long as she can remember. Classically trained as a ballerina, she soon moved to more modern types of dance where she felt she could be more creative with her movement. Upon discovering yoga in 2013 while living in Peru, she again took a classical approach to her learning and completed a 200-hour Hatha Teacher Training in India. ​Moving back to Vancouver she fell in love with the creativity and dance-like qualities of Vinyasa where her heart now lies. Her approach to yoga draws the relationship between tradition and creativity, incorporating alignment and breath into a strength based practice. Her inspiration comes from her students, her daily practice, and the mountainous back country world around her.

Trevor Vanden Brink

Trevor discovered yoga in 2009 and became a teacher in 2011. He began practicing because he wanted to exercise but never felt comfortable in a gym setting. However, by learning to mindfully move and listen to his body and breath. He quickly discovered his practice was not only making his body stronger and more flexible. But his heart and mind as well. Which, in turn, brought balance and peace to the rest of his endeavors. It is this sense of personal balance both on and off the mat that he hopes to help each of his students find for themselves through yoga.

"Yoga offers something deeper than just physical practice; flowing through poses is a silent conversation with myself." In Spring 2017, Tina completed 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training, which brought many new perspectives to her life and practice. "We are all students in Yoga, I believe we all have something to inspire and share with each other in this loving community."
