Instructors:

Emily McNicoll takes a lighthearted, inclusive approach to teaching Hatha yoga. Her classes offer a wide variety of postures and practices. She's passionate about offering practices that are approachable to all levels of practitioner. In her classes you can expect to explore both strength and flexibility as well as techniques for mindfulness, meditation, and relaxation. She has a particular passion for restorative yoga, mindfulness practices, and working with pregnant woman. Emily has been teaching yoga since 2008 in Edmonton and was happy to explore teaching internationally in Bali in 2016. Emily has assisted with many teacher trainings around Edmonton and has completed many herself. She is well versed in safe anatomical alignment as well as prenatal yoga. As of 2016 Emily has been working as a doula along side teaching yoga. She believes in living from her heart with authenticity and enjoys asking big, inquisitive questions with a sense of humor.

Tori Lunden delights in teaching people who, like her, never thought yoga was something they could do or enjoy. Her emphasis on positive body awareness and respect for individual needs allow everyone to practice in a way that feels safe, accessible, and beneficial.

Tori initially tried yoga to help her recover from rugby injuries, and was hooked by the quiet and nurturing nature of the practice. Over a decade later, her knees and back have healed and she has an appreciation for both her body and her life that she never thought possible.

Tori has a degree in Social Work through the University of Calgary. Though no longer practicing social work in a formal setting, she remains passionate about social justice and building healthy communities. Tori completed her first yoga teacher training in 2008 through the World Conscious Yoga Family in Rishikesh, India. She has since completed yoga training programs through Yogaworks, Core Strength Vinyasa Yoga, Paul Grilley, and Leslie Kaminoff.
