I tap into my creativity to build sequences that help students discover their inner strength and I facilitate the process of relaxation for each body using modifications and variations. With a heart full of passion for yoga, I strive to create a sacred space where everyone feels encouraged to explore the transformative journey of yoga.
Strength & Balance:
My yoga practice emphasizes strength and the importance of restoring
balance, both in body and mind. I believe that yoga isn't just about poses; it's about fostering resilience, empowering your body, and finding tranquillity within.
Community & Connection:
I cherish the joy of building a vibrant community of like-minded individuals.
Through my classes, I aim to bring people together, fostering a sense of
connection and shared purpose. Yoga isn't just a physical practice; it's a
gateway to relationships, support, and a shared path to well-being.
I'm deeply committed to creating a safe and welcoming space for every
body and identity.. I celebrate the beautiful diversity of all individuals, and I believe in the healing power of yoga for each unique soul.

Shane loves the outdoors. Chasing the ocean and mountains all the way from Ontario, he arrived on the island in 2021. He has since become addicted to surfing and mountain biking in between his day job as an environmental consultant.
Shane began his journey with yoga in 2018 – he was bored at the gym and needed something to spice things up. Believing flexibility was not in his cards, he’d never entertained the idea of practicing yoga. One of his best friends pushed him to try an into month of power yoga – and just like that, he was hooked. The blending of a full body workout, finding the physical limit, and the practice of checking into the present moment while letting go, was exactly what he needed. Yoga helped him tame his temper (and still does) and touch his toes. Now he tries to pass that immense benefit of yoga through his teaching.
Sarah began practicing yoga as a way to stretch after running, but it became so much more than a physical practice when she started to feel subtle changes in her mind and heart. Without realizing it, she had started down a path of self-discovery, and it has changed her life for the better. Practicing yoga gives her the space she needs to let go of her thoughts, listen and connect with her heart, and embrace her dreams.
Sarah began teaching yoga in 2013 to share her passion for something that has truly been such a positive influence in her own life. She strives to give her students space and connection to their heart, to their voice, and to their own unique passions. She believes that taking the time to find stillness, to breathe, and to listen will help us tap into our own innate and intuitive wisdom and guide us to where we truly want to be.
Sarah enjoys spending time immersed in nature and feeling a connection to our beautiful Planet Earth. She believes there is always more to learn, and will always be an enthusiastic student and explorer of our world ♡
Sarah is a YA certified RYT-500, and teaches all levels Yin, Restorative, Hatha, Vinyasa, and paddle board (SUP) yoga. She also leads Meditation and Yoga Nidra, and always includes Savasana with every class!

Tina graduated with honours from the International Academy of Health Sciences in 2019. She began her practice as an RMT in Ottawa ON, at a prenatal clinic. Moving west with her husband in 2021 they found themselves in beautiful Victoria BC. When not practicing massage or yoga, Tina is often playing with her dog, devouring books, creating textile crafts or playing D&D with her friends.
Tina's practice is grounded in techniques designed to relax the nervous system. She utilized hot stones and neuromuscular relaxation techniques to activate the parasympathetic nervous system. It is when we are in this relaxed state the body is best able to recover. Tina applies therapeutic pressure in a soothing manner to relieve pain, increase range of motion and invite the body to relax in a calm safe space.
My name is Tamara Maxim and I live in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada! I am so grateful to live in the Pacific West Coast, which has a vibrant yoga community! I have 2 beautiful daughters who always support my yoga ventures. I have two adorable yoga dogs, Honey and Sweetheart, who join in my yoga adventures and are often featured in my yoga videos!
I started teaching yoga in 1999, due in large part to the inspiration I found from spending time at the Yasodhara Ashram as a child and young adult. Through my own practice, infused with yoga philosophy and study, I have found yoga to be a constant source of healing and joy. I love weaving together deeper elements of yogic teachings into my classes, especially drawing from the elements that have resonated within my life. I am grateful for the many connections I’ve made in life through yoga and feel grateful to share my passion in my community.
