Yoga like my family is a gift. I have four amazing kids and a wonderful husband.  My dream for this "Quan's Hot Yoga" studio has come true!

Yoga changed my life completely. Early 2005 I had a neck injury comprised of herniated discs in three parts of my upper neck featuring extreme pain and numbness. Doctors said that only surgery would help me get back to a normal everyday life. What followed was tremendous stress and depression. The end of that year When the chance came to visit Bali of Indonesia I went the my first yoga class featured on the beaches of Bali. It was such a challenge for me. My entire body felt like it was in pain but I walked out of there completely surprised by my experience with yoga. After three days I returned home with an open heart,integrated body and rejuvenated life.

Living yoga, better life. A sign that greater experiencing my body through yoga continues to make me stronger everyday with practice. It has been years now since my injury and I no longer experience insufferable neck pain or require surgery. Life with yoga for me just keeps getting better. I want to share this wonderful experience with you and help you to be healthy, strong and beautiful in this crazy world we live in.

Can't wait to see you on the mat!

Loving yoga, living happiness!

Namaste

Kids Yoga by Sarah Byers

 Yin Yoga by Bernie Clark

 Hot Yoga by Dallas Krewschelnicki and Meiying Quan

From the first time I attended a yoga class I knew this was going to be a life long practice. Something just clicked. As fitness and healthy eating have always been a large part of my life so too is yoga. Practicing yoga for roughly 15 years now I still consider myself a student of the art of yoga. In my yoga practice I'm constantly learning new beneficial techniques and variations that I add to my everyday life.

Having completed the Yin Yoga Teacher Training program with Bernie Clark and a Sattva Kids Yoga Teacher training program with Sarah Byers I found them very beneficial in my own family life. With this experience I have the opportunity to share this knowledge and these experiences with others in hopes they too will find them beneficial in their lives.

Ashtanga Yoga Immersion with David Robson

After leaving the competitive world of rhythmic gymnastics, I was searching for something healing, both mentally and physically. When I stepped into a Modo Yoga class in Montreal in 2008, I felt that I could finally exhale. I was inspired by the intensity of the practice, the warm guidance of the teachers, and the feeling of rejuvenation that I felt after every class! I was instantly hooked, and I knew then that I had found my path. I completed Modo Level 1 in Kerala, India in 2009, and Modo Flow in 2011.

My yoga journey then led me to Ashtanga Yoga after moving to Regina. Ashtanga continues to be my main and daily practice. I travel to Toronto to practice and learn from David Robson annually. Eventually I made my first trip to Mysore, India in 2014 where I began my studies with my teacher Sharath Jois. I returned in 2016, and plan to make annual trips to deepen and enrich my practice and teaching.

I am forever in awe of the wisdom of the practice, and grateful to be able to share my passion with anyone who wants to learn.

 

Charla Weber

RYT-500
I was first introduced to yoga in 1974 by her mother and was immediately drawn to the physical aspect of building strength while developing flexibility. Just over 6 years ago, Charla began to incorporate a regular practice of yoga into her life and experienced a deeper level of yoga; the integration of body, mind and spirit - not only on the mat, but in all aspects of her life. After sharing her passion for yoga with her children and friends, a desire to continue to share that passion with others called her to complete her teacher training in Bali, Indonesia.

Charla hopes everyone leaving her class has the sense of creating a little bit of space in their body, and in their mind.

 

Andi Costanza

I started doing yoga after 3 years of rehabilitating a sports related wrist fracture. I had difficulty regaining my strength and flexibility and was frustrated with the healing process. I remember feeling intimidated and unsure if I would even like yoga. But soon after I regained and surpassed my previous level of strength and flexibility.

To my surprise, Yoga became the center of my life on many levels. I participated in numerous different styles of classes and workshops to gain a better understanding. I then decided I wanted to share my rejuvenating, inspiring and life changing experience with others and therefore completed a Yoga instructors course through the Bodhi Tree in 2014.

I enjoy playing a variety of sports such as soccer, tennis, golf, hockey and weight training. I instructed yoga to the University of Regina Men's Hockey team during their 2014/2015 season and assisted with injury rehabilitation. I have also instructed Yoga to youth groups for sports injury prevention.

I graduated from the Western College of Remedial Massage Therapists in 1999 and have found massage therapy to benefit and compliment the instruction and understanding of Yoga.
