LUCILA

Lucila is a yoga practitioner, singer, songwriter and creative expression facilitator.

Her classes aim to inspire, empower, and advance awareness of breath and movement and how it is interconnected in everything. Lucila takes a mindful approach that reminds students to be gentle with themselves and to appreciate the ever-evolving moment of right now, to be fully present.

Her hope is that you step off the mat and into the world feeling refreshed, nourished and balanced.

KETHY S-K S

Hello!
I am a Cameroonian – Canadian Black woman (she/her) living/working in the Ottawa-Gatineau region. I am a 200-hr Certified Yoga Teacher with a background in ashtanga and vinyasa hatha yoga. I teach Slow Yoga Flows that are accessible to Beginners. 
The yoga practice is meant to be taken at one’s own pace, letting go of expectations and meeting the body and the mind in the present. Mindful movements — strengthening and stretching muscles — while focusing on the rhythm of our breath.

Be kind and gentle to yourself.
Breath. Move. Modify. Rest.
Go hard. Go slow. Do you.
I am only here to guide you.
The journey is all yours to enjoy.

CHANSONE

My name is Chansone,
I am a yoga practitioner and instructor with a passion for the outdoors and for nature.
I enjoy focusing on aspects of mindful movement, functional mobility and generating heat and energy in the vinyasa style, which is accessible to a wide range of skill levels. I believe yoga can provide a meaningful space where the mind and the body can truly connect and grow.

Yoga can be an enriching space for individual healing and an empowering platform from which community building and community engagement can take place – where people can come together and create inner as well as broader level change.

Outside of my yoga practice I enjoy climbing, cycling, painting and gardening (and maybe a little bit of planning to one day own a vegetable farm).
