Well, it looks like we're in this for the long haul, so we've decided to move a few of our morning classes to Zoom...

 

We're currently offering 3-'Simple & Deep' classes per week: Mondays, Wednesdays & Fridays (9:30-10:30 am)

OUR TEACHERS

LYNN LAKUSIAK

Lynn Lakusiak, E-RYT 500: Yoga at St. Mark’s founder/director with a degree in Education from the University of Western Ontario, has taught a variety of healthy living and lifestyle skills.

Twenty years ago, Lynn faced a health challenge which became a profound inspiration to shift gears, to examine her priorities, and to take a deeper look into the fabric of a healthy life. Grace, timing and an incredible longing to seek this deeper awareness resulted in meeting her living meditation master; a meeting that ignited a spiritual awakening that continues to unfold in her life today.

She became a passionate student of yoga, traveled and studied extensively and journeyed to India in 2009. Her initial training was in the Iyengar method. For 12 years, she actively studied Anusara Yoga diving into myriad immersions, master immersions, trainings in therapeutics, advanced therapeutics and philosophy. This culminated in her certification in 2010 as one of Canada’s first Anusara teachers. She has served as a mentor, both locally and in the USA, to other hatha yoga teachers in their development.

Lynn is now an independent yoga teacher who continues to be an avid student of the Heart, delighting in aligning the ever-revealing wisdom teachings of yoga with the practicality of life itself. Lynn offers from a rich vein of experience and shares with clarity, authenticity, simplicity and a deeply-rooted passion that sparks her to inspire her students in ever fresh and new ways.

She lives in Old St. Vital with her husband of 47 years, Gene, and loves “Freestyle”, Lake of the Woods, her favourite place to revel in nature with family, friends and 3 beautiful grandchildren.

COREY JILL LAKUSIAK

Corey Lakusiak is yoga instructor & movement trainer who's been teaching at Yoga at St. Mark's since 2007.

Known for her colourful visuals, clear language and alignment cues, she invites students on a journey to tap into their inner wellspring of vitality. Her teachings are rooted in yoga philosophy, human anatomy and Nature.

KATHLEEN TOMY

When Kathleen first started practicing yoga in 2005, it instantly felt like a natural fit physically, given her background in gymnastics. But it was the mental/spiritual effects of yoga that prompted her to want to learn more, and to share her experience with others through teaching. With a background in medicine, Kathleen brings an anatomical, alignment based focus to her teaching; while striving to remain curious and open to possibility.

KATHY BAUDIC

A yoga student for the past 10 years, Kathy dedicated herself to becoming a teacher in 2011, taking a 100-hour Anusara Immersion and a 200 hour Teacher Training at St. Mark’s.

Kathy felt immediately “at home” when she discovered Yoga at St. Mark’s and through her consistent studentship and practice, she now offers a level 1 class.

She loves the focus of the alignment principles which not only help her care for herself physically but have awakened her to the spiritual benefits that support her in the rigors of her daily life and in her work as a hair stylist.
