RASHMII ALEVOOR
INSTRUCTOR
Libra Sun, Scorpio Moon, Virgo Rising
 
Who You Are:  Rashmi found yoga almost 10 years ago and has been practising some form of it almost every day since. She received her 200 Hour Hatha Yoga certification from Samyak Yoga, a school in Mysore, India. Her approach to yoga transcends physical practice. She loves to travel and has endless curiosity about different cultures and the world at large. She loves music and is constantly dancing to the beat of her own drum. 
 
Why You Love to Practice and Teach: For me yoga is a comprehensive and integrative guide to life. It’s definitely more than merely a physical practice. I’m someone who can live in her head a lot and so I appreciate that this practice brings me out of my head and into the body.  My approach to my classes is to create a safe and inclusive environment in which students can explore mindful movement, get curious about their present state of being, and practice compassion towards themselves.

KATHRIN BRUNNER
INSTRUCTOR

Aries Sun, but I don’t know the rest.

Kathrin (she/her) began practicing yoga in 2005 and has been teaching since 2009. She’s also a Pilates instructor and has studied mindful approaches to resistance and strength training. Her approach to movement is one that values accessibility and personal exploration. She believes movement is an integral component of our overall health and that mindful forms of movement can increase our capacity for stress resiliency and self-regulation. In her own practice, the ability to self-soothe through breath, movement, and meditation has been deeply healing. Off her mat, Kathrin loves hiking, camping, learning about nature and playing with her two kitties Molly & Mitzi.

Chelsea (she/her) is a teacher & creative based in Tkaronto. Her practice is grounded in mindful and compassionate movement – with a particular affinity for a good heart opener. She strives to be conscious of how each person’s experience influences the way they show up every day – on and off the mat. She is a firm believer that each student knows their body best and lives by the saying: “you are your own expert”. She aims to guide classes that are supportive and challenging, and is constantly looking for fun new ways to transition into familiar shapes.

TARYN DIAMOND
INSTRUCTOR
Leo Sun, Taurus Moon, Virgo Rising
 
Taryn (she/her) will forever call herself a ‘new mom’, despite having a four year old. Her entry to yoga was through movement, but her passion ruminates in studying its roots in Eastern philosophy. She is unabashed in her commitment to cheesy jokes and not taking this thing called ‘life’ too seriously. Taryn is most passionate about teaching movement that breeds self-inquiry and compassion. Her classes purposefully amp up the agency of her students because, ultimately, we all have the best teachers within us. If she had to pick one modality to be monogamous with, it would be Yoga Nidrā. Through nidrā, Taryn is able to express the golden nuggets embedded within the philosophy of yoga, while also facilitating some meaningful rest for her students. 
 
Despite not being a ‘Trekkie’, this Leonard Nimoy quote really hits home for her: “The miracle is this: the more we share, the more we have.

TAMARA SALPETER
INSTRUCTOR

 

Cancer Sun, Aquarius Moon, Leo Rising 

Tamara (she/they)

I believe in the holistic benefits of movement and lead practices in a multitude of modalities. I instruct yoga, restorative, pilates, barre, rope wall, functional movement, circus arts like contortion and aerial, and more. I am also in school studying to be an osteopathic manual practitioner. 

I love leading practices that invite connection to breath, noticing thoughts, emotions, and loving and accepting the most subtle layers of yourself. The invitation to be intentional, and integrate your practice to inform your actions, expand your heart-mind, and to be of service off the mat.

VALERIE TIU
INSTRUCTOR

Cancer Sun, Taurus Moon, Capricorn Rising

Hi, I’m Val, I use she/her pronouns. I’m a Yoga & Movement Instructor and Meditation Guide. I offer practices rooted in mindfulness and an anti-oppressive lens.

Outside of yoga, I love spending time outdoors and sampling baked goods in hip cafes.

Yoga has been the one thing that has remained a constant for me over the last 15 years. It is a practice that has grounded me in the most challenging times, leading me back to joy and peace with myself and others. Sharing the practice is an incredible privilege that comes with the responsibility to honour yoga’s roots and teachings.

Shawna (she/her) is a self-proclaimed bibliophile and as much as she is inspired by movement and nature, she is inspired by words and stories.
 
Shawna is passionate about making what we learn in a yoga class applicable to our lives.  She believes that there is so much potential held in this practice and she wants to help others to see and feel into that potential; ultimately tapping into their own unique potential.
