OMies Acro Yoga - Ciara Jean Beaton & Andrew Milliken
Acroyoga is the practice of trust. We have spent the last four years working together to marry this main element with a sense of play to help our students enliven their connections - whether it be with strangers, friends or partners. We believe deeply in bringing to life sweet acroyoga partnerships and a strong sense of community enriched with clear communication and built on these three foundations: trust, connect and play. As yoga teachers, we have had the privilege of witnessing acroyoga inspire our students to step out of their comfort zones so that they may truly soar to new heights and blossom their relationships with others - both on and off their mats.

Kripalu Yoga - Jarryd Lee
Jarryd became captivated by yoga while rucksacking through India in 2009. This love of yoga led to his completion of over 500 hours of yoga teacher-training programs through the Kripalu Centre Massachusetts, U.S. and the Kailash Tribal School in Dharamsala, India. To deepen his understanding, Jarryd enrolled as a Yoga Studies major at Lakulish Yoga University from 2014-2018, he has since received a B.A in Yoga Education Studies with a focus on Karma, Gyan, and Bhakti Yoga (or the yoga of action, knowledge, and devotion). Through his training, he is developing an in-depth knowledge of ancient yoga texts and Indian epics. Jarryd believes that the integration of proper action, knowledge, and devotion form the foundation of a stable and deep yoga practice. This integrated approach to Classical Hatha Yoga shines through in his teaching.
