'When I moved to this area 7 years ago 
leaving behind a yoga instructor I loved, 
I thought I would try the local studio.
 I have been coming ever since and would highly recommend it.

I attend Cathy’s Monday -Thursday yoga/Pilates and in fact schedule my work around her classes.
 I am now enjoying Amy’s HITT classes Tuesday and Saturday.
 I also loved Alex and Kathryn’s classes when I could get to them.

 Highly recommend
 the studio. 
The people are great, 
it is always clean,
 it is very welcoming and there are classes for just about everyone.'

 are open to everyone, regardless of their level of experience, 
as we are offering mindful practices which are meant to be experienced on a personal level, 
within a comfortable physical & mental state. 

This means that a first time beginner could enter a more advanced class,
 but would choose to not participate in anything that felt unsafe or stressful.
Everybody is encouraged to explore a comfortable range of motion and rest or sit quietly whenever necessary. Visualization is a very powerful tool for neuro-muscular education..

Foundation & all level Hatha Yoga, Somatics, Restorative and Yin classes are more gentle & suitable for all levels: including beginners, those who are working with injuries, getting back to physical exercise or wanting to move better, relax and unwind.

Flow, Core Yoga & HIIT classes tend to be more challenging.

Our classes are offered on a DROP IN basis:
no need to reserve a place or pre-register.
We have all equipment including mats, bolsters. blankets & props available to borrow:
free of charge.

Maybe the journey isn't so much about becoming anything.
Maybe it's letting go of everything that isn't you so you can be
who you were meant to be in the first place......
I invite you to join me in a journey to YOUR truth!

Qoya is based on a principal that through movement WE REMEMBER...
We remember that our essence is wise, wild, and free.

Using movement as medicine we are able to drop out of our head
and into our bodies. We dance to remember our true essence.
We dance to remember how good it feels when we allow ourselves to let go.
We dance in the joyful company of other women
to feel a sense of community and belonging. We dance to have fun.

There are no levels, and everyone is welcome.
There is ABSOLUTELY NO WAY to do Qoya wrong..
and the way you know that you are doing it right
is that it feels good in YOUR body!!!

How does it feel in your body when you are able to authentically express yourself?
I invite you to dance THAT...

There is such a magic when we are able to take off the masks and
trust what we know to be true in our bodies.

There will be limited space for this class and class will be through sign-up only.
Investment is $20 - please make a cash payment in person or
through e-transfer to alanacatlin@gmail.com 
Please share with anyone that you think may love a class like this... 

OCT 12
 @ 7 - 9pm  $20 

​I so look forward to dancing with all of you!!

Alana Catlin has always had a passion for dance. At a very young age she appreciated the medicine received through movement. Alana believes that there is a magic that we all hold with in our bodies and through movement we can remember and connect to our true selves. 
 This passion and belief lead her to Costa Rica this past year to obtain her certification in Qoya. Qoya is a movement (a little yoga and a whole lot of dance) practice designed to help women remember their essence as being 
WISE (the wisdom of yoga), 
WILD (creative expression in dance) &
expanding our capacity to enjoy our bodies through sensual movement
