Crew

Lindsay May

I have been working as a fitness instructor for nearly 15 years, and my passion for this vocation and the people I work with, continues to deepen. I love spending time outdoors and being active and travelling. New challenges excite me, and lattes make me very happy.

My Sunday

Spending time skiing or wake surfing with my baby girls and my husband.

My Inspiration

Love, and goodness that exists in all of us; the people that have come into my life over the years, continually remind me that we are all human and that we all feel love and pain the same way.

My Favorite Class

YIN yoga, I love the stillness and the peacefulness.

Jessica Turner

Born with skis on my feet (well, almost), movement & sport have always been a part of who I am. After having my first child, I decided to take my love of sports & fascination with the human body, and turn it into a career. I love witnessing someone achieve something they haven't done before; it can be as simple as, nailing their squat form or as big as achieving their goals after months of dedication.

My Sunday

Coffee is always a good start, followed by a morning ski/board on the mountains, wrapped up with a mellow evening with family. In the summer, a run in the trails followed by an afternoon on a lake.

My Inspiration

My mom. She is full of life and open to new experiences & ways of being. She has given me the gift of unconditional love & has taught me that there is always more to learn.

My Favorite Class

Spin yoga, it’s the perfect balance. You push hard, sweat it out and then leave feeling grounded.

Sylvie Allen

I try my best to increase the stoke level in Pemberton; whether it’s coaching mountain bike clinics, training in the gym or sweating it out in class. My goal is to make sure each of your reps is perfect, and to teach you the tools you need to excel at your favourite sport. "You can achieve anything with practice, let desire be your guide".

My Sunday

Get up early, eat a big breakfast, pack a big lunch and go on a ski touring, mountain biking or hiking mission with friends; mountains are my happy place.

My Inspiration

My mom has taught me to stay positive, no matter what obstacles are thrown at me. She has taught me to LIVE life every day.

My Favorite Class

Yoga; I need to chill out a little more often.

Michelle Nelson

Throughout my competitive years as a kickboxer, I was lucky enough to have three amazing coaches. I was trained to believe, that failure was not an option; when I stepped into the ring to fight, I knew my hard work and long hours of training would pay off. My coaches were always supportive and proud of me, no matter the outcome of my fight, which has strongly influenced how I train my own clients; tough but kind.

My Sunday

Spending as much time as I can with my husband and my puppy; drinking coffee, eating brunch and walking/hiking.

My Inspiration

My mom; she is the rock that holds our family together. She has taught me to work hard, be the best that I can be and to never give on my dreams.

My Favorite Class

A demanding circuit or interval class that pushes my limits; I like the challenge.

Frances Fraser

I grew up practicing dance and gymnastics, which flowed naturally into a passion for yoga. In the spring of 2015, I completed my 200 hr yoga teacher training with Julia McCabe. My teaching style definitely reflects my dance background; I love inversions and fluid transitions. As a student and a teacher, I am focused on body alignment and proper form.

My Sunday

Spending time at home with my family or hiking and adventuring with friends!

My Inspiration

The Pemberton Valley is filled with so many amazing people who are dedicated to living healthy, beautiful lives. I am thankful and inspired everyday by this amazing community I get to call home.

My Favorite Class

Lyrical dance class.

Denisa Lowry

Yoga has been part of my life for nearly 18 years. I completed my 200hr training in 2010 in Whistler at Loka Yoga. Through my practice I’ve learned to breathe deeply into all moments of life, good or bad. Yoga has shown me that we are all stronger than we think, and we all have a peaceful, calm place within. 

My Sunday

Wake up before the sun and get a quiet practice in before the world wakes up. A lazy family breakfast. Farm market, paddle or hike then a slow food dinner with family and friends.  

My Inspiration

Nature and the cosmos and how we are all interconnected in this beautiful, wacky web of life

My Favorite Class

Ashtanga or restorative yoga depending on the day.

Catherine Mulvey

I have been living in Pemberton now for two years, and I am so inspired by this incredible community.  Previously, I was living and working in Calgary, teaching yoga full time for 6 years.  Injury and burnout, distracted me from my practice, both as a student and as a teacher.  I am excited to return to teaching, healthy & whole, with a renewed dedication to my purpose and life's work.  Each time I step on the mat it is like coming home.  I am honored and excited to share my experience of yoga with you.

My Sunday

BIKING & SNOWBOARDING - I even actually enjoy spin

My Inspiration

CONNECTION! To me the very essence of yoga is connection. It gives us the opportunity to cultivate transparent and authentic connections with oneself, with our community, with nature and with the Divine. When these connections are nourished with proper care and attention, curiosity even, life can be better navigated, resulting in amazing transformation and growth.

My Favorite Class

Currently anything with lots of movement.
