  • Many people wonder if yoga is right for them. My belief is that yoga can help everyone, and with my guidance, you will realize that positive practice begets positive change. Yoga has a very profound effect on body, as well as the mind and spirit. I specialize in two areas; Yoga for GolfersTM and Yoga Thrive (yoga for those with cancer). I love both areas as they have both spurred me to a deep understanding of functional movement and anatomy. Thanks to thousands of students, I’ve learned to color outside the lines and appreciate my deep seeded philosophy that bodies, not poses, have alignment.

  • I arrived in Vancouver in 1996. I saw blue sky, breathed clean air, and immediately sensed freedom and opportunity. I fell in love with Canada instantly. Challenges were routine. I could not find work. I could not communicate. I failed an interview for a dish washing position. I feared public situations because of my language barrier. I overcame it, and studied for eight months to learn English. I next attended massage training, began a business, and soon after, yoga found me, but this time re-united with my old friend: joy of music, rhythm and body movement. In 1997 A very dear friend who I will never forget offered me free basement commercial space. I used it to begin my first yoga studio. The newfound outlet for the expression and flow which came from my heart grew rapidly. As the yoga grew, so did many beautiful friendships. As I look back on that little basement studio which continued 13 years, those years forged the skills and foundation of my yoga practice, and showed me how to maintain and grow a yoga business.

  • Uttamjeet Kaur describes the call to practice Kundalini Yoga as a voice impossible to ignore. The call came for her in 2010. As it is for many, awareness of the practice came to her as she found herself working through life changes and the desire to examine herself on a deeper level. Completely different from other styles of yoga, she was attracted to the unique facets of Kundalini Yoga.

  • I was introduced to yoga on my first trip to India in 1996 and I have never looked back! It has been the only constant in a life full of change. It has provided the roots and grounding that I have needed during the ups and downs of this journey called life….

  • Kim McNeil's life has always mirrored her teaching. The loss of a loved one to cancer went all too perfectly with for being the teacher of a research-based yoga program for those with cancer. Kim's young family members and friends diagnosed with arthritis inspired her to create a yoga program for them so that they felt included, instead of excluded. Kim's personal experience with burnout and anxiety brought her to Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction and meditation. Kim McNeil's multi-disciplinary approach to yoga therapy helps her clients manage their chronic pain, stress, and mobility issues. The result is a huge improvement in their quality of life which includes getting back to doing the things they love.
