"I came to know yoga back in 2008 as a form of physical healing after a car accident that left my body and mind frazzled. I joined a studio in Calgary, hearing of the benefits that yoga offered.

Jade Blackhurst

Yoga Teacher

RYT-200, RPYT, Postpartum Doula

"I have practiced yoga on and off throughout the majority of my life. It wasn’t something that was offered in my home, just something that kept creeping in. When things were hard, especially through university, I continued to turn to yoga but would lose sight of my practice when everything seemed to get back on track. I practiced in this on-and-off cycle for years and it wasn't until I became pregnant with my first child that I decided that it was important to commit to my practice so that I could ‘replenish my well’ and be present for my family...

"My journey into yoga awkwardly started back in high school when my friend and I came across her mom's fitness DVDs (this was back in the '90s) and we had no idea what we were doing! However, over the years I started attending classes at various studios and began to feel the benefits for my physical and mental health. By 2007 it had become part of my weekly routine; and my practice evolved in 2008 when I was pregnant with my first son...
