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)

 


Kristen Wilson

 

Kristen Wilson was born and raised in Vancouver, BC. She came to yoga as a competitive ice hockey player, looking to counteract her repetitive movements with stretch. In her early twenties, yoga transitioned from a physical practice to a mental and emotional one. Through movement and breath, Kristen discovered how to take ownership of her thoughts and practice living in the moment. 

In January 2018, Kristen took a leap of faith and quit her corporate career to pursue the massage therapy at OVCMT in Vernon. She and her boyfriend are now living in Lake Country, indulging in the rare occasions that he's not on the road and she's not studying!

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.
