Meet Our Instructors
Having lived in India for a majority of his life, Jai has been practicing yoga since his childhood. After moving to Canada in 2016, Jai noticed how so many people are burdened and weighted down with hectic lifestyles, stress, depression or anxiety. It was at this time Jai felt his calling to become a yoga instructor to help people feel at peace and one with their mind and body.
Jai is a CYA-RYT-200 hours certified yoga instructor with a passion for hatha, ashtanga, vinyasa, kundalini yoga and pranayama.
Often times, our mind is elsewhere, running astray. To address this, all of Jai's yoga workshops and classes have a focus on unifying the mind with the body, leaving us feeling strengthened, whole, complete and connected.
With Jai's extensive knowledge about Hindu and Buddhist mythology, attending Jai's class becomes a transformative experience.
Joanna is a 500hr Yoga Alliance Registered Teacher. She completed her trainings with Yogacara Global. She completed her initial 200hr Hatha and Vinyasa training in Whistler in 2015 and an additional 300hr training in Bali in 2017. She also completed a 50hr Yin Yoga certification with Bernie Clark at Semperviva in 2016.
Joanna's classes are inclusive and cultivate a space for grounding. She strives to establish a sense of balance in the body through the concept of sthira and sukha, strength and ease. Her yoga practice and teaching is slow and mindful, giving time to curiously learn from the body and the breath within each pose and transition. The creation of such a space gives the student the opportunity to develop a deeper awareness of their own bodies and to recognize that they truly are their own best teacher and guide as they start to listen inwards.
Joanna is passionate to share what she is learning from her own yoga journey and truly believes that the time spent on our mat ripple outwards into our daily life.
