Koady Snyder

Koady Snyder

Yoga & Movement Instructor/Coordinator

 Koady incorporates what she has learned from yoga into her daily life. With a background in anatomy and biomechanics, she approaches yoga with science based movements and allows each to deepen with an experiential aspect. Koady’s passion lies in the inclusiveness of yoga and the ability to find equanimity.

Finding first hand the profound ability to transform the body and mind, as well as nurture and heal the spirit, she is a compassionate teacher, hoping to help others feel belonging. 

 Koady provides a space for her students to show up as their authentic selves and connect to their practice with curiosity. On the mat, she encourages individuals to express, grow, laugh and embrace the beautiful depths of their whole self.

Tania Seagrove

Tania Seagrove

Yoga Instructor

Tania’s path of Yoga began when she was a teenager, where she spent many summers studying classical Ashtanga Yoga at the Salt Spring Centre of Yoga in B.C. This period included a journey to India and eventually led to completing her first yoga teacher training in 1998 at the Ashtanga Yoga Institute in Santa Cruz, California, with Baba Hari Dass. Tania has since completed another 200 hour in depth training at Ashaya Yoga with Todd Norian in Massachusetts, as well as assisting several international workshops and conferences. 

 Tania’s classes blend traditional Hatha Yoga and Vinyasa in a fun and inspirational experience with a focus not only on building strength and flexibility but also supporting the harmony and interconnection of body, mind, heart and spirit.

Kathy

Kathy

Vinyasa Instructor

Kathy’s passion for yoga began in 2007 when she was introduced to Vinyasa Flow yoga. Wanting to deepen her practice and knowledge for yoga, she completed her 200hour teacher training (RYT) and registered with the Yoga Alliance. Kathy has been teaching classes since then, creating community, awareness, passion and fun!

 Kathy’s mission is to share her passion for yoga on and off the mat by cultivating gratitude and awareness. Kathy encourages yogis to be aware of the mind, body and soul connection, yet have fun and not take their practice too seriously!

Rachel Mackay

Rachel Mackay

Gentle Instructor

Rachel’s yoga practice has evolved with her over the past decade since she first stepped on her mat. Now firmly rooted in a slow and strong asana practice that focuses on breath and meditation, Rachel aims to share this practice with her students, infusing humour and humility along the way. Rachel obtained her vinyasa flow yoga teacher training certificate in Bali, Indonesia with Shades of Yoga, where proper technique and alignment is strongly emphasized and safety is more important than injuring yourself to get into pretzel-y poses.

Rachel firmly believes that yoga is for every body and aims to make her teachings inclusive for all.

When not on the mat, Rachel is a holistic nutritionist and personal chef and can be found making a mess in the kitchen or outside exploring nature.

McKenzie Maxwell

Yoga Instructor

Mckenzie is a yoga instructor, highschool teacher and psychology student. She believes in the positive benefits of spending time outdoors and moving the body. She teaches classes that focus on connecting body and breath, empowering postures and personal challenge. 

McKenzie took her first class in 2010, feeling awkward, giggly and uncoordinated; by her fifth class, she felt stronger, more powerful and aware. 

McKenzie was accepted to the Outdoor and Experiential Education program at Queen’s University in 2014. During this time, she spent a month in Costa Rica, studying the impact of yoga and mindfulness on youth, taking courses and sharpening her own practice. Upon graduating, McKenzie moved North where she taught at an alternative, outdoor school for at-risk youth, focussing on white-water paddling, canoe tripping and climbing. Yoga and mindfulness practices became a part of everyday teaching for Mckenzie, as she facilitated classes for students, coworkers, studios and the local community. New to this community, she’s excited to share and expand her love of yoga and mindfulness.
