Sheri Garnier

My yoga journey began about 20 years ago and in essence, has taught me how to remain grounded during this roller coaster called life!  I received my 200 hour teacher training through Gaiatri Yoga in Calgary.  From there, I have been fortunate enough to study my advanced teacher training in Bali, Indonesia and in Iceland!

Combining the physical postures of yoga with pranayama (breath work) and meditation, my teaching focuses on alignment and connecting the mind with the body and soul.  “Yoga is the human quest for remembering our true nature, our deepest selves”.

If you were to ask me what to expect from one of my classes….I would reply like this:  Expect to meet yourself on your mat, exactly where you are.  Do not compare yourself to anyone in the room.  Be prepared to sink deep into your heart, to challenge your mind and to stretch your body.  All levels are welcome.

I hope to see you soon!

Miranda Bachman

Born and raised in Saskatchewan I started practicing yoga in 2008. Like many others, I saw yoga as only a physical challenge at first. I used my practice as a way to keep my strength and flexibility after I had graduated and wasn’t dancing as much. As I continued to practice I not only noticed my body changing but my mind as well, my strength began to grow and my mind became de-cluttered

In 2010 I traveled to Todos Santos and received my 200hr yoga teacher certification from Yandara Yoga Institute and in 2016 I received my Evaluation of Flow certification from Empowered Yoga. My extensive dance training has taught me body awareness, but my yoga training has taught me body appreciation and to appreciate all that life has to offer.

“It is though alignment of the body that I discovered the alignment of my mind, self, and intelligence.” -B.K.S. Iyengar

 

Linsey Haugen

 As a resident of Lloydminster all her life Linsey began her yoga journey in 2009 with a need and curiosity for deeper self discovery. She soon began to feel a freedom of body and mind she never encountered anywhere else. Two years later her passion for yoga and a need for a more permanent change in her life took her to Bali, Indonesia where she received her 200 Hr YTT with Radiantly Alive. As she realized everything in the world constantly changes there is one thing that always remains the same, the true self. She loves helping others within their practise and growing together in awareness and understanding.

Kirsten Stang

Kirsten began practising yoga in 2012 when she was living in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Her first encounters of yoga were with different teachers from all over the world. Their new perspectives challenged and inspired her so much that she immediately decided she wanted to share this amazing gift with as many people as she could. When she moved home to Lloydminster she continued to learn and grow her practise, both in studios and at home. She continued to seek out new perspectives by regularly connecting with different yoga teachers and in January 2016, she travelled to Goa, India to become a certified yoga instructor. She was trained in a variety of styles, including Ashtanga Vinyasa, Hatha and Yin with a focus on meditation and pranayama.

Paula Zadko

My personal practice is Restorative and Therapeutic Yoga. My goal is to make Yoga accessible to all ages and all bodies. As a Reiki master I truly believe in the mind, body and soul connection. Once we quiet the mind we can hear the messages from our body and begin to heal ourselves on all levels.

Paula completed her 200HR Yoga Teacher Training through Empowered Yoga

Rikki Ducharme

Rikki Ducharme was certified in 200 hour RTY with Yandara Yoga Training institute in Baja Mexico July of 2014. However, she found her first Yoga class and studio in Calgary, Alberta in 2003 and fell in love with the practice. The studio was an Ashtanga Yoga studio and fit extremely well with her active personality. Through the practice of Yoga, she discovered how patience, discipline and love can transform not only your body but your spirit. Now, she practices traditional Yoga, meditation, Yin Yoga, and hot Yoga and is constantly discovering how Yoga can change and enhance your life.

It has always been in Rikki’s nature to want to help others. After becoming certified in Reflexology she discovered, in her clients, that what they really needed was someone they could trust. Becoming a Reiki Master/Teacher amplified her ability to help others and once certified as a Yoga instructor, Rikki incorporated all her teachings together, building Yoga classes that are truly unique and have the client’s best interest in mind. Whether it be a reiki session or Yin Yoga class, the atmosphere is one of pure mindfulness and warmth.

Sarah Dubeau

Originally from Calgary, my yoga journey started in 2010. I began practicing at my local studio and not long after was offered the position of receptionist. From there I completely fell in love with everything yoga and healthy living. Discovering endless possibilities within myself and truly learning how to love and be gentle with oneself is what drew me to eventually become an instructor in 2012. After completing my training my enthusiasm kept growing. I wanted as much knowledge as I could find, and this drive to learn, I believe, is so important to feeling and staying young. In my career as a yoga instructor I’ve lived and travelled in New Zealand, Australia, Indonesia and India. Back on home soil now the driving force in my life is to spread light and love and share the knowledge and experiences given to me with others. It’s not about fitness or flexibility, it’s about learning who you are and what you are truly capable of. ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE

Lanna Parsons

I feel like yoga found me….I didn’t know I was looking for it. I started with meditation when I was going through a tough time in my life, but didn’t know at that time it was part of yoga. I believed yoga was only on the mat, the physical practice of yoga. I mostly did CrossFit, boot camps and weight training and thought yoga would be no problem. I quickly found out how different they are. Being competitive I always felt I needed a hard sweaty workout every time but I am learning on and off the mat how important it is to just be. Constantly searching for a balance. I love to share what I learn, and love to learn, so teaching yoga is perfect, every class you have an opportunity to do both.
I completed my 200 hour training in December 2017 through Oasis and because I love to learn decided to continue on into more training. I’m currently taking my 300 hour through Empowered Yoga.
I look forward to sharing my yoga journey with you.

Sue Garand

I am a certified Can Fit Pro and AFLCA group fitness instructor/personal trainer. I am addicted to the natural endorphin high my classes bring!!

I am certified and have been teaching Turbokick for about 7 years now. This class is a fun, high impact cardio class with tons of punches and kicks to burn major calories and keep the core solid and strong! I am also certified and have been teaching PiYo for about 1 1/2 years now. I love the strength and flexibility this class brings. Huge benefits to the body strength wise but maintaining major flexibility which is so important. This class is a combination of Yoga and Pilates and it is amazing!

Check out PiYo or Turbokick on Youtube to see what we do in class and what its all about!!

Nicole Gagnon

When I first started Revkor I instantly fell in love with everything about it! I loved how I felt after completing workouts and loved the strong community that Pure Vibe had. I’m honoured to be able to share my experiences, passion and all the many benefits of Revkor with others through teaching at Pure Vibe!
I am passionate about teaching others and helping them find success and the confidence to crush their goals! I also enjoy running. I run half marathons whenever and wherever I possibly can!
I am very excited to start my new journey of teaching Revkor at Pure Vibe! Looking forward to seeing you on the bands!

Lyndee Herle

Why Revkor? I fell in love with these workouts right away. They quickly become addicting and there’s always room to challenge yourself. Being such a well developed system and sequences, I knew I wanted to dive in deeper. Not only that, but the atmosphere at Pure Vibe is so welcoming and refreshing. I’m so excited to be a part of this and share these amazing work outs with you all! I have a young active family and believe we all need to set goals, stay motivated and have fun doing it! Look forward to seeing you at the bands !!

I have been a part of the pure vibe community for 3 years now and fell in love with the atmosphere and the unique classes offered. When the opportunity came along to join the vibe tribe it was an easy decision to make as it compliments my career as a kinesiologist and personal trainer. I love teaching Surfset because it offers everyone a challenging and fun workout that you can customize to each individual’s skill level. It offers two work outs in one because your body is subconsciously working to maintain your balance while you are working isolated muscle groups in class. It’s  also a great way to dry land train for a variety of water sports when we are stuck indoors for cold Alberta winters.  All are welcome in surf and I invite everyone to shake up their routine and to test out their balance!
