  • When we embark on a yogic journey, we are brought to a place of higher awareness where irresponsible thoughts and actions are no longer ignored. I believe that this practice has a strong power to transform and this transformation varies from person to person. Whether it be living a more healthy and active lifestyle to elevating your global consciousness, I want to encourage individuals to positively impact their communities and environments.

  • My main style of yoga to practice and teach is Vinyasa Flow. I teach a free form flow style rooted in the tradition and philosophy of Ashtanga Vinyasa. I have been teaching Flow, Power, Ashtanga, Hatha, Yin, Core, Therapeutics, Pre-natal, and Yoga Nidra and Vipassana style meditation since 2003. My teaching style is tailored to the group that has gathered, but my message is always the same; yoga is about presence, relaxation, and connection. We play with the dynamic of hard and soft, ease and effort, movement and stillness, doing and undoing. All of my classes have a "come as you are" feeling. I meet each student wherever their starting place may be and we move forward together on a path of embodying strength and sensitivity.

  • Yoga surprised Carolyn as a ski bum in Whistler ‘99 at the unaware age of 19. It initially provided agility for her snowboarding, skateboarding and trail running. Now, as a teacher in Vancouver, she continually learns how to connect with others and feel at home in one’s skin. The magic of yoga surprisingly grows quieter-towards a place where the physical, the internal, the spectacle and the witness are all one. Carolyn’s past life was outdoors, in environmental restoration. Since completing her first 200 hour YTT in 2008, she has an extensive CV: as a contributing writer for My Yoga Online, filming videos with lululemon and Mala Collective, as an educator for international Teacher Trainings with Lila Vinyasa School of Yoga and Semperviva Yoga, managing yoga studios and guiding students through the mind blowing practice of just being while in silent meditation intensives. She has previously assisted at two Wanderlust Festivals and completed the Kula Yoga Project 75 hour advanced training in CT.Carolyn’s vinyasa classes are chock-full of unique alignment cues, smart sequencing, some careful touch and some touchy jokes to which she pays gratitude to Schuyler Grant, Ana Forrest and Clara Roberts-Oss. Her passion for silent meditation in forests is thanks to Adyashanti and Michelle St Pierre.

  • I believe that a yoga practice is an amazing way to deepen your connection to yourself, your body, your community, and the divine. My yoga journey began in 2004 on my 40th birthday, to repair old sports injuries. From basketball, to beach volleyball, to snowboarding and many performances as a dancer–my body was messed up and needed repair. After taking my first yoga class, I was instantly hooked. I have been teaching yoga since 2006 and credit my teacher training to the remarkable Eoin Finn and have been inspired by the teachings of Dustin Fruson, Ryan Leier, Danny Paradise, Christine Price-Clark, Clara Roberts-Oss, and Natalie Rousseau. I teach Power Vinyasa, Flow, and The Rocket. My classes are creative, challenging, and fun!! All levels are very welcome. Students and fellow teachers have enriched my life incredibly. My Mantra: "Practice and breathe, with balance and grace.... Less struggle, more surrender..... Less ego, more compassion

  • I started practicing yoga out of curiosity in my early 20's before the explosion of yoga studios. I practiced off and on, but found the practice challenging as I was very stiff and rigid after years of playing soccer and other sports without stretching properly. After the births of my children, I came back to a regular yoga practice to heal my body. Moving my body on the yoga mat felt invigorating yet calm. I felt challenged yet relaxed. I knew in my heart this was exactly what I was supposed to be doing. Yoga has created clarity in my mind and a strong sense of self.

  • My teaching style and focus continue to expand, but my goal for students is consistent. I'm passionate about getting people to connect, getting curious about how their bodies, minds, heart and soul relate. I weave together postures and breathe to suit the mood of the day, and offer a mixture of music, inspiration and silence to help each of us tune in to a deeper level of ourselves. I like to offer a challenge on the mat, and get creative, but always with the same goal in mind. To get present, grounded and real, and learn how to better flow with this life we are dancing through.

  • Hi, I’m Leo and I teach yoga. A few years ago, on a journey of self-exploration and of the world, I traveled by bike to Mexico and backpacked down to Peru. There, I discovered yoga through a dear friend. A year later, I went to India for my first yoga teacher training with Rishikesh Yog Peeth (yoga school) and to Guatemala for a 40 day silent meditation retreat. Upon return, I am dedicating my heart to teaching full-time and sharing with you my experiences abroad. The style and influences of my teaching come from my close mentors Shelley Tomczyk and Noah Maze. I am also inspired by teachers such as Michael Stone, P.T Mistlberger and Adyashanti, who help to shine light on my path.

  • Born and raised in Vancouver, BC, Jade McClure was first introduced to the fitness industry in his teens. Jade quickly realized exercise wasn’t just about the noticeable effects on his body but about gaining confidence, decreasing stress and an overall feeling of well-being. Jade has used these realizations over the past decade to make a mark on the Vancouver fitness community by offering his clients more than a one-hour workout. Rather, they are treated to his holistic, 3-stage approach, called “The Jade Way”, that encompasses Exercise, Nutrition and Yoga . By modifying “The Jade Way” to personally fit each of his clients, Jade is able to offer comprehensive lifestyle plans based on personal goals and needs. He incorporates in-depth health and exercise evaluations, functional training, strength training, nutrition coaching, yoga, injury rehabilitation and more to produce dramatic results for each individual client. Understanding that a personable and balanced approach (as opposed to an aggressive, single focus method) always produces better short-term and long-term results, Jade’s work is visibly noticeable with his Vancouver clientele.
