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)

What first brought my attention to yoga was a recommendation from a physiotherapist as a treatment for a condition I have. I was very impressed as It helped me immediately and I felt like I belonged in the yoga world.

I learned a bit about the philosophy of yoga that year and found I wanted to know more. I was attracted to teacher training because I wanted to learn everything I could.

I’m a graduate of the 200-hour teacher training  at South Okanagan Yoga Academy (S.O.Y.A.) under the instruction of Marion McConnell who along with her husband Bob own and operate the academy. Through S.O.Y.A.’s ongoing training I’ve attended several annual retreats lead by internationally renowned yoga masters such as Erich Schiffmann, Rod Striker, Sri Dharma Mittraand Mark Stevens to name a few. I have been teaching Yoga at the Kelowna Family Y for the past 12 years,

What I’ve come to love about Yoga is it allows you to connect mind, body and spirit. Through this connection you can move energy through your body bringing you to a calm place in your heart.

My other loves are my family especially my grandchildren, my garden and time with friends and family.
