Our Studio

Taylor

Taylor was first introduced to yoga through anxiety and panic attacks. Although she describes the journey as sometimes scary, she is extremely grateful as this discomfort is what led to her greatest passion – Yoga. Through compassion, her goal is to help turn feelings of uncertainty into creativity for others who suffer from life imbalances. When anxious energy is used in a creative way, it leads to authentic self-expression and when we express ourselves truthfully, we find peace.

Through the discovery of transforming discomfort into art, Taylor has taught many different styles of yoga. Vinyasa came the most natural. The movement in vinyasa truly embodies the freedom to explore ourselves on a deeper level, through rhythm, connection and breath.

Taylor’s love for vinyasa led to trainings with Ann Green and Shiva Rea in Prana Danda, Trance Dance, and Elemental Vinyasa. These are all examples of becoming one with movement and the vibrations of the people and earth around us. She tries her best to express this unity not only through her teachings but also through cultural arts, jewelry, essential oil blends, and reiki.

Taylor hopes the elements of her classes leave you not only peaceful but open, connected, grounded, supported and lighthearted. Most of all, she hopes it inspires your energy to change in the direction of authentic self-expression.

Shelley

As an entrepreneur and business owner, Shelley has had the opportunity to travel and, in her leisure time, experience yoga in many different parts of the world. Yoga has always been a touchstone for her, and has been important in her own quest for mental and physical wellbeing. In December 2017, Shelley completed her Yoga Alliance YTT200 teacher training with Ann Green at Bliss in Barrie, Ontario.

GoYoga is a Shelley’s offering to the community of Orangeville—a welcoming, nurturing place to come and experience all the benefits a regular yoga practice brings. She believes that the world would be a happier, healthier, and kinder place if everyone came to yoga.

Miriana

Miriana began practising yoga in 2006 and immediately fell in love with the feeling of calm, peace, and just being at home within herself. As a mother of 4, it has become a way to drop in and reconnect with herself. Observing the changes, both mentally and physically, on and off the mat, she knew she was ready to go deeper with her practice.

She completed her YTT200 in 2008 at 5 Elements Yoga and Pilates in Brampton with Michelle Cormack. She has continued her learning through workshops in Vinyasa Flow, Power, Yin, Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Pre and Postnatal yoga under the teachings of Bryan Kest, Hart Lazer, Maria Garre, David Swenson, Danny Paradise, Sarah Powers and Rod Stryker. In 2014 she participated in a 40 hour immersion with David Robson of the Ashtanga Yoga Center of Toronto.

Every teacher has brought a new element to her practice, and she is grateful for each of them. Yoga is a constant journey of self discovery and growth. As Miriana continues to learn and grow within her own practice, it is her intention to share and help others with theirs.

In 2015, she completed her training for Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) yoga with Stand Up Paddle Vancouver and began classes through her new SUP Yoga business, Robot Surfer. She looks forward to offering these classes to the GoYoga yogis this summer.

Natasha

Natasha came by her therapeutic yoga training long ago. When she was a young girl, her yogi babysitter used to bring her Hindu mythology comic books and would share many epic heroic stories. This made such an everlasting impression on the importance of making a difference for the good in people’s lives and circumstances.

Professionally Natasha was an adept buyer for a Reverse Engineering company. For over ten years now, instead of semiconductors, Natasha adeptly reverse engineers people’s biomechanics and their mythology around their mobility, stability and healing.

She has embodied and coined the phrase “ease is possible and life changing”, and anyone that meets, or works with her understands that it is undeniably so.

She is best known for working with people of all abilities, for learning more and always sharing what she knows. Natasha is in the midst of an intensive 3-year training to become a Clinical Somatic Educator and Practitioner in order to offer our incredible community much more.

Namaste and Please Know that Ease is Possible and Life Changing,

-Natasha

Janice

Janice first discovered yoga by flipping through the pages of a yoga book in the basement of her childhood home as her mother exercised to ABBA. In high school and university, she developed and practiced a set of flowing stretches to help recover from running and sports, and voila – her first vinyasa was created.

Janice has her 200-hr, Yin, Yoga Nidra and Restorative Yoga certifications and enjoys the creative side of vinyasa, deep stretches, and using therapy balls and other fascial release techniques.  She has studied with Bernie Clark, Rod Stryker and Jill Miller and counts among her influences Sarah Powers and Paul Grilley. She loves practicing indoors, outdoors, by lakes, on rocks, surrounded by forests, and nestled in gorgeous, serene studios like the one at GoYoga.

Janice believes in living optimally in our bodies without making it a competition or a list of “shoulds”. Instead, her approach to yoga is to work with what our bodies are offering us every day and to revel in the joy of movement and community.

Alex

Alex began practicing yoga as a means of physical fitness after leaving the competitive dance world. She quickly learned that yoga is so much more than just a physical practice and was eager to learn more. Alex traveled to the “World Capital of Yoga” in Rishikesh, India to study the traditional practice, along with meditation, philosophy and pranayama, here she attained her 200 hour RYT training. Trained in Vinyasa, Alex is also very passionate about learning and incorporating many forms of yoga in her teaching including Yin and Ashtanga.

She also plans to acquire more registrations affiliated with yoga so that she can expand her services.

Nicole

Soon after, she realized yoga is not just a form of exercise, but an incredible journey connecting the mind, body and soul. Yoga became her life-time practice, with so much to learn and explore. After years of dedicated practice, she went for her first 200-hour yoga teacher’s certificate in 2013. Since then she has been actively teaching and continuously taking different trainings, specifically focused on Yin yoga and restorative yoga.

Nicole is also a Reiki practitioner and a certified Thai yoga massage practitioner, trained in Toronto and Thailand. With over 1000 hours of training in various modalities, she develops her own unique approach of teaching.
