Loretta Siu

Bio

Loretta tried yoga for the first time during her second year of UBC many, many years ago. She can still distinctly remember how weird it felt moving in ways that were completely new to her. But she kept going back and the more she practiced, the more she felt both the physical and mental benefits – her back pain went away and she became a nicer person!

After practicing yoga for over ten years, she finally took the leap and completed her teacher training. What was initially just meant to be a step in her own personal growth and development progressed into so much more. She realised that sharing yoga with other people brought her immense joy and she had to keep doing it.

Her classes are uplifting – she strives to create a warm, welcoming space and encourages introspection and exploration. She also brings a genuine intention of making yoga accessible and fun. Whether it’s a slow, relaxing class or a fiery, powerful class, her hope is always that you will leave the class feeling better than when you came in.

Amy Marleau

Bio

I delved into the world of yoga at a young age, as a self-taught practitioner doing poses in my living room. In April 2017, I decided to get certified at Om West Holistic Centre in Montreal, QC, and have been teaching happily since then. What I have learned by studying yoga is that you can never know everything about yoga. Since there is so much to the practice, I believe it is up to everyone to choose their own path and live their own versions of the yogi lifestyle. Aside from the physical benefits such as strength and flexibility, the biggest change yoga has brought into my life is a sense of connection. That’s why I try to make my classes and teaching style all about bringing people together, connecting to ones self, to the universe, to the earth and to each other. To feel a huge sense of love and community is what it’s all about!

Janeen Mills

Bio

After first being introduced to yoga in 2005 through a high school fitness course, Janeen gradually began to integrate the practice as a way to manage the demands of being a busy student. This continued in her first year at Western University when she joined the yoga club as a way to get involved, stay healthy and manage stress. Throughout her time in school, she took on leadership roles for the yoga club and volunteered at a local studio with the goal of supporting students’ mental and physical health.

 Post-graduation, Janeen was drawn to continue sharing the health benefits and transformative potential of yoga with those from all walks of life, going on to complete her 200-hour training in 2017. Ever since, she has been actively dedicated to her craft and connecting with each student who attends her classes.  

You can expect a safe, inclusive and empowering space that allows you to explore movements and postures which feel good for your body and soul. Classes are an invitation for students to fully immerse themselves in the moment – modification is always welcome for the individual needs of each person. Janeen’s classes are consistent to build a strong foundation, with new movements mixed in to keep the theme of exploration fresh. Students cannot get enough of her calm, empathetic spirit, and the raw energy she brings to class.

 Outside of the studio, you can find Janeen tending to her many plants, traveling the world, and studying Psychology right here at UBC.
