“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

She teaches with a positive vibe and with a strong knowledge of human anatomy which empowers you to work through the poses in the way best suited to your body.

Tina Hsu

Growing up, Tina was trained in various genres of dance. Craving to move her body again after being a stay-home mom for 8 years, she walked into a yoga studio and instantly fell in love with the fluidity of synchronizing breath with movement in Vinyasa Flow. "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."

Jill Nadon

Jill believes that movement, in any form, is the key to a happy, healthy, fulfilling life. Since 2009 Jill has been teaching a variety of fitness classes from bootcamp to Zumba and everything else in between. While formally educated as an engineer, fitness is her #1 passion.

You can get a workout anywhere, but there’s something magical that happens when you throw a bunch of strangers in a room and get them moving!

Laura Roman

Seven years ago, I discovered yoga and I have been in love with the practice ever since then. I believe Yoga can teach patience, kindness and how to enjoy the journey without judgement. My classes are alignment based, cultivating strength, flexibility and harmony of mind. My classes are challenging, yet accessible to all levels. Come to stretch, relax and have some fun.

Dawn Slykhuis

Believing your passion is your purpose, Dawn became a yoga instructor in early 2019. With a background in social work and teaching, becoming a yoga instructor was a natural next step. Dawn believes it is our vulnerability that connects us as humans, making her classes suitable for all levels, including anyone who has never done yoga before. Dawn’s classes are grounded in the principle of ahimsa (non violence) towards ourselves, and towards our outside world.
When not practicing yoga, as a world traveler, she is known to jump on a plane with little notice, or can be found practicing gratitude for where she lives while enjoying a vegan donut with her rescue dogs near the mountains or the ocean.

Yoga for her has been a journey of growth, connection, transformation, presence and beautiful awakening. With every class she seeks to inspire people to create their own unique journey into a conscious life by connecting to themselves, detaching from conditioned truths & listening to inner wisdom. Her classes are dynamic, organic sequences designed to move with the body, flow with the breath, and feel with the soul. She combines asana, meditation, and breath.

Aya Khay-Ito

I discovered yoga over 10 years ago and it is now a part of my daily life. Yoga has been helping me to relax my body and keep my mind at peace. After having my daughter, I started having strong passions to support and connect with others by leading yoga classes. I have found that having a constant practice has helped me grow stronger and more flexible physically and mentally. I believe that Yoga connects us with nature and to the roots that we all originate from.

Julia Cobban

Julia believes that movement is medicine, and is dedicated to gaining as much knowledge and experience as she can to share with her students. Her love for yoga was sparked in Vancouver in 2006. After years of practicing she went on to complete her 200hr teacher training in 2009, as well as advanced anatomy based trainings with Yoga Medicine in 2016. In Julia’s classes, you’ll find embodied flow, heart intention, joy, truth, connection and devotion. With encouragement and compassion, she guides her students in mindful movement within creative flow sequences. This brings a deeper awareness of body and breath, thereby calming and balancing the nervous system and allowing for optimal mental clarity, physical health and all over wellbeing.

Tanmay Joshi

Yoga has been an instinct since childhood, which was nurtured and promoted by a strong value system at home and by my insightful parents. The inspiration to teach this art came from my wife, and I have come a long way along the path of Yog with a long journey of learning & understanding ahead of me. Yog has taught me to be versatile, which has been the inspiration for my intensive & actively profound work in the fields of Foreign Languages, Yog, Law & Indology.
As a passionate, versatile & committed Yog Instructor and Therapist with 5 years of work experience, I have a dynamic and positive approach to teaching and learning.
