Brad has been teaching and studying in multiple classrooms, retreats and workshops worldwide for over 6 years. His father introduced yoga and meditation at the young age of 9; Brad practiced its techniques and philosophies leisurely until the age of 17 when a severe knee injury led to a dedicated daily practice as a means for recovery. Brad had never felt better physically, mentally or spiritually and knew then that he had to share what he had discovered with others. Brad’s teachings are infused with passion, humour, wisdom, grace, peace and tranquility.
After more than 20 years of working in health care, as an occupational therapist and administrator, Laura sought a more inclusive definition of health. Her own search for fulfillment drove her deeper into many practices (such as yoga, meditation, and gratitude) where she found herself grounded and happy, to see what else she could learn and how she could apply these tools to her own life. A lifelong seeker, she was interested to discover that her study of various practices make up the relatively new discipline of Applied Positive Psychology (the science behind thriving and flourishing). She is fascinated by the intersection between the evidence and what just feels good and she is excited to continue to learn and share with others so they may also thrive.
Laurie brings life long learning through her 36 years of teaching & personal experiences. By connecting with teachers of Reiki, Reflexology & Thai Yoga Massage to assist with healing her
personal health, she has learned how to fuse these teachings into her group Yoga classes in our modern fast-paced world. Incorporating a wonderful blend of Eastern modalities in our modern Western world helps bring about good health, steady
minds & calm spirits. Laurie brings teachings from each of the ancient modalities to fuse them with the values of our own community. Using music as a platform to shift emotions, her sincere, open-hearted practices speckled with humour and perhaps some heated river stones help create safe, energy-shifting, rejuvenating practices.
