Angelina McNamee

Angelina was first introduced to yoga in primary school and remembers practicing backbends in her bedroom as a teenager.

 

As a young adult, she embraced yoga because of the immediate beneficial effect she noticed it had on her physical and mental health. Her first Yoga teacher training program was completed in South India in 1999. Since then, she's taught countless Yoga and Pilates classes in Nanaimo and Victoria. Angelina also continues to study. She seeks out experienced teachers at home and around the world and holds a Masters degree in Education.

 

She loves to explore foreign languages, art, music, gardening, and the great outdoors. Angelina is experienced in teaching both active styles of Hatha Yoga (Sivananda, Vinyasa Flow) and relaxing styles (Yin, Restorative). She is forever grateful to her teachers and students along the path who continue to demonstrate that there is always more to learn in this wondrous life on beautiful planet Earth.

Sandy Weatherall

Sandy’s journey into yoga began from a serendipitous meeting with a studio owner in Alberta. Originally, trained in martial arts, Sandy’s very first class revealed a similarity of the two as practices in balance, grounding, flexibility and breath.

After being deeply moved in her first class, the journey began. Practicing steady since 2013 and getting her teacher training in 2018.

Sandy’s approach to yoga is holistic. She always expresses that the gifts and practice of yoga can incorporate into all areas of life.

 

It really is a practice of calming the mind, supporting the body and balancing the spirit.
