Meet our New Grads

Salimah Kassim-Lakha

100000002 large
Modern day Yogi and Yoga Therapist, Salimah has travelled internationally using the technology of Yoga to lead, heal, teach and transform. YogaVision Centre Director, Yogapalooza, CBC’s Yoga Expert, prone to giggling fits, and big ideas, always in love, permanently grateful, hoping for the best and expecting just that, new world explorer and technology junkie.

Rachelle Gura

The most overheard phrase after Rachelle's class "I feel amazing!" Come to a class and find out why.

Leaving her corporate management career in 2005 to teach yoga and pilates full time, was a lifesaving shift and proved dreams become goals and are achievable. In her pursuit to help people free their mind and body, one certification quickly lead to another including; 200RYT, Yoga for Runners, NLP, Life Coaching, Pilates MAT and Yoga Tune Up® Therapy. Her unique flavour of teaching was recognized by Lululemon becoming a Brand Ambassador for their Mississauga location in 2010.

Today her overarching focus is biomechanics. As a yoga teacher anatomy is important but what creates balance in the body is the knowledge of how all the pieces move together and affect each other. Let's nourish our muscles just as much as we work them to reduce risk of injury and maintain movement and independence well into our twilight years.
