Class Descriptions

Yin Yang Flow- The first portion of the class explores the more active, athletic side of the practice, moving through postures quickly.  In the second half, the pace will slow down, focusing on gentle postures held for a longer time.   Yang yoga builds strength and endurance while Yin yoga focuses on flexibility and focus.

Gentle Yoga- Gentle approach suitable for all ages, abilities and bodies.  Using a mixed style approach, the class will focus on flexibility and strength building within your range of motion.  Great for people recovering from injury, or needing a slower, less athletic pace.

Pilates- Looking to switch up your workout routine? Pilates will work to balance all muscle groups’ strength and flexibility, with an emphasis on challenging the core muscles with each movement. Classes will blend the Classical Pilates Method with exercise variations and by using props.  Pilates mat work is a challenging yet safe method to sculpt your body and to feel increased agility in your every day movements. Class intensity is moderate to hard.

Slow Flow- Move through a series of postures slowly and deliberately.  Focusing on connecting breath to movement this gentle class will help you maintain flexibility and build strength.  Great option for beginners.

Yoga Tune Up- Anatomy focused flow with many alignment cues.  Suitable for beginners who want to learn about holding and moving through postures, as well as advanced yogis looking to improve alignment in their practice.

Nia- The NIA Technique is a mind/body physical conditioning program that initially stood for Non-Impact Aerobics, a health and fitness alternative that emerged in the '80's, and evolved to include neurological integrative practices and teachings

Restorative- Achieve deep relaxation with a slow paced class.  Sometimes called sleeping yoga, restorative yoga is a very gentle, breath focused practice.  Gentle postures are held for an extended period of time, using props to support the body.  If deep relaxation is what you are looking for, try restorative

Yin Yoga- Yin Yoga is a slower-paced, more meditative class. In Yin yoga, the poses are held for a long period of time (typically three to five minutes or longer) to target the connective tissues (such as the ligaments) rather than focusing on the muscles. As a result, the asanas are more passive holds, with little muscular engagement. This class is a gentle approach, and suitable for all ability levels.

Yoga Mingle- New to town?  Or just want to meet some new people?  Yoga mingle is an interactive class for all ability levels.  Tea will be served after the class for people to socialize

Fit Flow- Fit Flow explores the more active, athletic side of the practice, moving through postures quickly with a warm up and cool down sequence. 

Move Your Body (Fitness)- Fitness class with a mixture of upper and lower body strength exercises using your own body weight. You can expect elements of core work and stretching (of course.)

Yoga Plus- Plus size, Plus age, Plus personality.  Whatever your plus is, this class is for you.  Gentle approach suitable for all ages, abilities and bodies.  Using a mixed style approach, the class will focus on flexibility and strength building within your range of motion.  Great for people recovering from injury, or needing a slower, less athletic pace.

Gong Meditation- Gong Meditation is a form of sound healing dating back to the bronze age.  Gongs create sound waves, as well as vibrations that can be felt in the body.  No 2 sessions are the same, as everyone contributes their own unique vibration to the room.  Students will lie comfortably throughout the session on camping mats (provided) while the gongs sound.  Please bring a pillow for your comfort.

Sherri Pestill

My yoga practice has helped me to dive into self-love, self-compassion and self-care daily, and made  me a stronger woman, a fearless leader, and a more grounded individual. In my classes I love to combine tools for self-care, and self-awareness, while nourishing the mind and soul with yoga. My  hope is that you step off the mat with a deeper connection to yourself.  I am so grateful for the yoga and all the gifts of awareness it brings. As we breathe together. We heal together.

Jaq Raver

My love for Pilates sparked in 2013, and led me to my teaching certification in 2015 through Body Harmonics in Toronto. The Pilates Method is the practice of training our bodies to recruit the correct muscle groups; fine-tuning the mind-body connection. Joseph Pilates once said, “In 10 sessions you’ll feel the difference, in 20 sessions you’ll see a difference, and in 30 sessions you’ll have a whole new body” - and I couldn’t agree more! I love to teach challenging classes, that make you think, and maybe even make you shake!

Mandy May Wright, BHK, Registered Kinesiologist

Mandy is inspired by movement; how it releases endorphins, boosts energy, and helps to heal! Her first yoga experience was when she was 16 years old, just after a lower back injury.  Yoga poses lead her to discover how movement can not only heal her back injury, but prevent it from recurring too! Not long after, Mandy pursued an education in human movement (Human Kinetics), receiving her Bachelors Degree in 2016. She has experience teaching exercise classes specific to multiple sclerosis, lower back pain, mothers and their babies, and sporting disciplines.  Mandy lives an active healthy lifestyle; playing all sports, eating chocolate and cheese, and loves to meet new people.
