My husband, Riley and I have two beautiful daughters; Macy and Farrah. As well, some 4 legged children; our two dogs and a cat. They are all my world! In the fall of 2011 I moved to Moose Jaw. I didn’t know anyone and still commuting for my job in Regina 5 days a week, it was hard finding that sense of community. That was until I walked up those steps of the Yoga Loft one fall evening not too long after moving here. It’s crazy, but I instantly felt that community love when I entered inside. I instantly fell in love with yoga and realized it was exactly what I needed. I have met so many people that share the love of the practice and many of these people I can now call my friends. For so long I have wanted to try yoga and after my first class I was hooked. Originally, I started yoga for the fitness aspect, as I have always been a sports enthusiast and always enjoyed staying active. Slowly, yoga began to open my body and quiet my mind – all while teaching me so much about myself. I felt a shift in my entire being and became more dedicated to my practice; opening up to meditation, I began to discover the inner peace. For myself and I believe for many of us, yoga begins with the physical practice then shifts into something much more profound – I believe this shift is what keeps us coming back to our mats. I am so grateful that I can bring yoga to our community and offer a beautiful sanctuary where we can all practice. For that, I want to say, "thank-you." I cannot wait to meet anyone I have not met yet and greet those familiar faces I do know. Namaste.

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!
Jesse GodinTo feel lost is not a lack of understanding where one is, but feeling like you don’t know where you’re going. In life we can’t predict the future but purpose gives us a direction. Choose your purpose wisely and you will have everything one could need. Pursue it with passion and you will have everything one could want.
