felechiaI came to the discipline of yoga through my search for a healthy way to cope with the stressful situations of life. In 2003 I began taking yoga classes at Regina’s Yoga Haven, where I experienced Sivananda, Yin, Restorative, and Vinyasa classes with some of the city’s favourite teachers. Lori Lee, founder of Yoga Haven, and Lori’s teachers (particularly Thich Nhat Hahn) have been big influences on my yoga and I share Lori’s goal: to take the practice of yoga off the mat, so we are having a mindful experience of life. In 2013 I completed my level one teacher certification in Ananda Yoga™ at The Expanding Light ashram in northern California. Ananda Yoga is a meditative Hatha-style of yoga, based on the teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda. In 2013 I also began training to be a certified Ananda yoga therapist.

Jessie Reid

Jessie began her study of yoga 12 years ago on Vancouver Island. She realized that she had found the perfect way to balance the stress of post secondary education. With the addition of two children and a full time career in the financial industry over the next 5 years, Jessie found her practice of yoga an invaluable resource that she returned to again and again. In 2007, Jessie and her family moved to Northern Sask. This small and welcoming community inspired Jessie to begin teaching yoga. Wanting to bring the amazing benefits of this practice to others, Jessie started a yoga group that practiced weekly.
Jessie discovered the Yoga Loft in Moose Jaw while visiting family here. Practicing at this studio allowed her to fall even more deeply in love with yoga – finding more peace, enjoyment and balance to the busy pace of life. She has a special place in her heart for Pregnancy Yoga, having personally experienced the undeniable benefit of practicing yoga during all four of her pregnancies.

Mei-Ling Chow-Mintenko

I love yoga and have been a practitioner for the last seven years. I began teaching in 2012 and have been honored with the opportunity to share yoga with others in beautiful yoga studios. As a dedicated student, the moment when yoga changed my life was when I decided I needed to be a teacher. My yoga style is a blend of certified Core Strength Vinyasa. A style that embodies total transformation not only in your practice but in your life in the real world. I hope to inspire others to tap into their own inner strengths and evoke them to dig deep each time they step onto their mats to free their own potential as they create their own yoga magic and life!

I got into sports at a very young age which was the start to a life long love affair with learning and exploring the human potential. It started off as a passion for the physical but led me to uncovering more and more avenues to explore. Pushing myself, finding new challenges, and exploring my own potential, took me places I could never have imagined. The most rewarding place its taken me is to the place of a teacher. Sharing my passion is not only satisfying, on a contribution level, but also in the pursuit to become a better student myself.

I’ve had many amazing teachers and mentors throughout my journey and I know I’ll continue finding more. It’s my hope to help people in the way that my teachers and mentors have helped me. My yoga journey started at a very young age of 10. I was introduced to yoga by my brother and some great books on Ashtanga Yoga. I’ve been practicing ever since with an increase in passion when I became a personal trainer in 2007 and began teaching others with much more detail and depth.

My most recent travels actually allowed me to study with two of my yoga inspirations, Dice Iida Klien and his wife, Briohny Smyth, which was amazing, to say the least. My love of learning continues to grow and I can’t wait to see where it takes me next. Two main goals I have when I teach is to have fun and to help people leave feeling like they’ve learned something new.

Nature, animal and travel enthusiast!! I started studying vinyasa and yin yoga in 2010 in Saskatoon. Moving to Calgary I broadened in to Bikram yoga. Enjoying the variety and seeing the benefits physical as well as mental i chose to take my 200 hr RYT in New York City with Yoga Works. I have taken second level training in Reiki and love the healing benefits! I am committed to safely transitioning people into and out of poses safely focusing on the breath and anatomy!

Theresa Simon-Worobec

My practice is rooted in the philosophy of play. It is my intention to bring that with me when I teach. My goal is for you to leave my classes with calmness in your heart and mind and a gentle smile on your face. I obtained a 200-hour yoga teacher certificate in 2015 from Breathe Hot Yoga in Calgary and I have been practicing for much longer than that. In my spare time, I like get physical! I try to get outdoors as much as possible.
Teacher Theresa

One of my favourite things to do is go for solo walks with my dog, Walter. I also love getting out for a run with my partner and riding my awesome bike. I’ve recently joined a cross-training gym in Moose Jaw. I never thought I’d be into lifting weights, but I absolutely love it now! Another one of my intense interests is poetry. I find that yoga is a meeting place between the physical and the metaphysical where poetry can come to life and dance into the soul. Out of all the things I love to do, yoga holds a special place in my heart. It has helped me understand and appreciate the beauty that is my own body and mind. I believe we all have that beauty within us. It’s not a physical beauty, and it’s not something you can see. You have to feel it. I look forward to playing and growing with you.

Kayleigh Rice Profile picThough a believer of fun and love, I am no stranger to challenging the body and mind. I took a year-long 200hr yoga teacher training through The Bodhi Tree in Regina, Sk. There I became well versed in Hatha yoga- exploring meditation, alignment, history, mythology, and everything energetic. My style is a blend of all of these things. A little whimsical at times (it’s just the unicorn in me) and yet grounded and focused with intent. I could make you break a sweat just standing there. Come to classes I teach and discover for yourself! Discover your Self!
