Our Instructors

 

 

Lindsay Rousseau

I discovered yoga five years ago. It was after the birth of my first son and it helped me work through my postpartum depression. At the time it was a place that I could go to help me manage the stresses of motherhood and quickly grew into this space that filled my heart with lightness and gratitude. 

I've learned a lot about myself through the practise of yoga and I'm certain that my husband and close friends can attest to the fact that it's made me a better person. 

I completed my 200 hr Yoga Teacher Training in Edmonton, Alberta with Empowered Yoga and recently completed my 25 hr in Evolution of Flow. 

I love power, sweat, breath, community flow and great tunes and I believe that we should not take ourselves too seriously, and that there is no such thing as perfection. ( I remind myself of this every single practice)

Eric Douglas

 

I am a devout rock climber and passionate yoga practitioner. I first discovered yoga as most do; at my local hot yoga studio; which at the time was in Calgary. Yoga started as a cross training tool for rock climbing and it remained that way for some time.

It wasn’t until I travelled to Nepal and India that I saw another side to the practice. I realized the importance of mindfulness, and how freeing my body of tension was a big part of freeing my mind. Meditation and movement are somewhat synonymous for me and yoga is a way to practice both sides of this harmonic duality.

A year after my trip to Nepal/India, I returned to northern India to complete a 200hr teacher training certified by Yoga Alliance. This gave me the tools to deepen my own practice as well as share it with others. It has taken me a while to start teaching and I am still relatively new to it, however It allows me to constantly re-evaluate the integrity of my practice.
