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.

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.

To 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.

Charlene Wilson

Charlene WilsonYoga has been a large part of my life for a few years.It has helped me build my strength, flexibility and confidence, both on and off the matt. Yoga became such a positive influence in how my mind and body felt; and “discovering my true self”, that I was intrigued to learn more.

I was a sponge – soaking in technique and spiritual awareness. I completed my 200HR Certification with Yoga Mala and currently enrolled in my 300HR. My heart lives in gratitude and gifting others with this wonderful experience of peace and balance. I will continue to be a student of the practice and I am deeply grateful for all of the loving wisdom my teachers have shared and bestowed upon me. I am passionate to teach Flow and Yin. Flow helps our body to feel purified with deep breathing – helping to build strength, calm, and peacefulness, while increasing energy, both in the mind and body.Yin is much needed today in terms of a hectic lifestyle – helping to reduce stress and anxiety, promoting calm and balance while improving flexibility, and releasing negative energy to provide space for positive energy. My goal is that you step off your matt feeling refreshed, nourished and balanced.

Brittney Bergen

Yoga Loft's Brittney Bergen

Brittney is a playful athlete who uses yoga as a way to unify her mind, body, and spirit. She discovered yoga in university as a method to recover from playing competitive hockey, and rediscovered it five years later as a way to heal from pushing too hard in barbell sports and in life.

Her friend, our instructor, Theresa Simon-Worobec brought her to an Open House at the Yoga Loft in 2016, and she’s stayed with us ever since – participating in 40-day challenges, and expanding her practice and spirituality beyond these four walls. Brittney is a testament to the healing and awakening powers present in our studio, and she hopes you’ll join her for your own healing and awakening.
Namaste.

Sian Milne

Yoga Loft
I have always been a mover….Rock climbing, snowboarding and martial arts have played a huge part in my life. My enthusiasm for these sports lead to a rather nomadic existence traveling here there and everywhere to compete, train and search out new adventures. Eventually I found myself a career I loved as a professional stunt performer in the film industry where I spent the next 10 years getting beaten up and broken down physically on an almost daily basis.

Dragged to my first yoga class by a well meaning friend as I tried to to heal from yet another injury, I was initially resistant to any form of exercise that didn’t involve body armour and huge amounts of adrenaline..… To begin with I felt nothing but frustration that my burned out body could not ‘perform’ like everyone else in the room!! Ever so slowly, slowly the light began to dawn and I saw that for once, maybe I didn’t need to ….maybe it was OK just to be me, as I was right at that moment – The relief was amazing, both mentally and physically, negative thought patterns and old injuries began to melt away.

Before yoga I was disconnected and frustrated with many issues in my life, yoga gave me the touch stone that I needed to ground myself, reconnect and start allowing myself to simply ‘be’. As a teacher I love to share my passion for movement and playful physicality in my classes.

I hold 200HR YTT BRYCE Vinyasa Flow certification. Hot Yoga (Bikrahm style) 85 Hr YTT and Sally Parkes Parental Yoga YTT 85 Hr YTT
