Knowledgeable space holders to support you during your practice.

Anna Gouin Shala Yoga Squamish
ANNA GOUIN

Anna sources inspiration for her classes from a place of humble curiosity, having bared witness to the way her own practice has evolved due to injury, lack of awareness, or unhealthy coping mechanisms over the years. Teaching from the seat of experience, Anna seeks to offer classes that are alignment focused, challenging, and accessible to all body types and levels of flexibility.

Bex Mitchell Shala Yoga Squamish
BEX MITCHELL

Bex’s intention is to hold a relaxed space to allow students to step onto their mat with a smile and practice with compassion. Her teachings encompass a holistic approach to yoga; expect lots of breath work and dynamic alignment-based asana along with teachings into the wisdom of yoga, which you can take with you off the mat and into daily life.

Carmen Chornell Shala Yoga Squamish
CARMEN CHORNELL

The practices of yoga and meditation have gifted me with immense self-discovery, inner spaciousness, and a trust of my own teacher and intelligence within. Guiding practitioners to experience this, even if only for a glimpse, is why I love to teach. I trained at the Sattva School of Yoga under Rameen Peyrow in 2014 in Edmonton. I feel blessed to teach the Sattva Sequencing as I strongly believe in its richness and truth.

Christine Selda Shala Yoga Squamish
CHRISTINE SELDA

My yoga is one of shamanic roots from the songs and bones of the earth, the mountains, and the medicine peoples. I have had the great honour of answering my vocational calling to teach yoga since 1998 and studying with many of the masters of yoga as we know them today: B.K.S. Iyengar, Pattabhi Jois, Sivananda, Geeta Iyengar, Dr. Karandikar, Swami Durgananda. As I journeyed deeper in the study of yoga, I have come to disentangle myself from all of these lineages.

Gin Perry Shala Yoga Squamish
GIN PERRY

I completed my 500 hr yoga teacher training with Christine Selda and the Shamanic yoga institute and continue to unpack the gifts that I received during that training. I am inspired by nature in the ways that it is cyclical, death follows life, as life follows death. There is not one without the other, and we must shed the old in order to breathe new life into our being. Yoga reminds me of that place within that never changes, is always there, and is my sacred refuge.

Jon Dickson Shala Yoga Squamish
JON DICKSON

What is the nature of transformation? Who, or what, transforms? And what is well being and healing? These are some of the questions a philosopher, scientist, and artist explore. As a lover of knowledge and wisdom, Jon explores questions like these through various means. Yoga, for Jon, is the place and space where he discovered that he could explore the nature of being and possible answers to these questions, while simultaneously being grounded in his body and in community.

Michelle Cronier
MICHELLE CRONIER

I grew up in the forests of Northern Ontario and have always had a very strong connection to the trees. Following whispers in the wind from the mountains, I moved out West to pursue environmental management for many years until I realized my call to serve was beyond the desk. When I found yoga in 2007, it taught me that within myself I held the power to create the life I want to live.
