Shuna completed her Yoga Alliance accredited teacher training with the internationally renowned Dylan Ayaloo. His trainings are known for their rigour in intelligent sequencing, anatomy, meditation and philosophy, which Shuna carries through into her own teaching. 

She came to yoga initially to treat stress, insomnia and recover a sense of self following a separation. It is through practicing yoga that Shuna allowed herself to fully connect with her body and creativity which helped her to dissolve obstacles of fear and move forward. This newly discovered sense of self is what drove her to become a yoga teacher. 

Passionate about creativity in all its forms, Shuna not only teaches yoga, but combines her background of film and photography with the moving body: for artists, film directors and photographers. 

Her style of teaching is clear, accessible and focused with a strong emphasis on creating a safe space to practice that is relaxed enough immerse mind and body. She offers hands on assistance and modifications, so new students are not left out on a limb and more advanced students can grow. 


Dynamic Core Yoga

A class designed for those of you that are at a desk bound for most of the day. Start your morning reprogramming those postural habits of hunching with the back, straining your neck and shoulders by conditioning your core and spine.

Inspired by the principles of Forrest yoga, developed over 40 years by Ana Forrest, this style of yoga is specifically designed to address your core and the physical and emotional stresses and challenges that we face in our modern lives. Each class starts with breathing techniques to oxygenate every cell in your body and to help you to meditate with the long holding of postures. 

This class is offered every week and provides exercises you can easily take home.  Consistency is key to feeling and seeing those core muscles develop over the spring and summer.

Wednesday 7:00-8:00am


 
 

Vinyasa Flow 

This class is based on faster flowing energetic movements in time with the breath (pranayama). Each class builds strength, flexibility and awareness throughout the entire body. The flowing nature of the class allows your mind to completely focus and relax through finding your rhythm in the practice. We end each class with time to rest, allowing you to absorb and feel the benefit of your practice. Beginners are welcome and modifications to postures are given to ensure the class is approachable for everyone.

Thursday 4:45 - 5:45pm


Hatha Flow

Shuna’s Hatha Flow classes are dynamic and fun, while allowing time for detailed instructions to ensure good alignment. Flow classes are a strong, physical practice and all levels are welcome, and modifications will be offered to provide a safe and enjoyable practice for all students.

Saturday 10:00 - 11:15 am *New*
