Anita Vidya

Shamanic Yoga & Teachings

Circle-Anita

My ancestry is Chipewyan Dene and Italian; situated near the Athabasca River along the North land and lakes of Alberta. My clear visions have been brewing since the early days of my youth; one vision guides me to learn and to be in a relationship directly with the spiritual knowledge of our Indigenous Spirit; one shared by the ancestors and the land. The other is to source the authentic teachings from relations across Turtle Island and beyond, and in all the worlds. Doing this work has developed a way for myself to be in reciprocity with all of our People. My ideals are to learn the traditional medicines shared by the Elders from the land and to listen intently of the oral traditions that they share. I lovingly continue on this path where I find a better way of life in this world of discernment and ceremony.

Anita is a certified Shamanic Yoga teacher trainer through the Canadian Yoga Alliance and has been teaching since 2012 and has apprenticed in Mountain Shamanism since 2014 with the Shamanic Yoga Institute. She carries a Black Stone Mesa and White stone Global Mesa through Mastery courses at the Institute. She is a Gold Canadian Yoga Alliance educator through the Shamanic Yoga Institute. Anita apprentices people in Mountain Shamanism and has taught 5 Medicine Wheels since 2020 in Ucluelet, Tofino, Nelson, the Kootenay’s and the Okanagan.
Applications for 2023 Medicine Wheel is now open.

Anita currently teaches Shamanic Yoga classes at Tidal Elements Healing Arts Studio. For current class information please visit our Events Calendar.

Jada Fire

Founder of Wolf Kin, Dance, Yoga & Shamanic Arts

Circle-Jada

After decades of world travel, Indigenous study and discovery of the primal spirit, Jada has cultivated her own teacher training curriculums, retreats and online courses to awaken the inner healer and reclaim her divine innate integrity as a fierce feminine divine. Her passion and soul purpose is to amplify and empower you to become who you are born to be, to raise the vibration of love and joy and say yes to life, luminosity, sensuality, spirituality and the creative awakening the Earth Mother and we are so yearning for. Jada believes that our shadows are simply awaiting our transmutation and that we all have an inner alchemist. She says if you have a deep dark shadow within, then you are sitting on a gold mine. This gold mine is awaiting your transformation. Be brave and have the courage to find that we are truly love at the core. We must first feel and face the layers of armour that are ready to shed before our resilience can burn brightly in truth. Inherently strong in flesh, blood and bone, Jada was born and raised in Long Island, New York and initially learned her resilience and strength through her Italian family upbringing. She later followed an intuitive calling to explore Queensland, Australia in 1999 when she began to understand the Aboriginal arts and culture through a study abroad opportunity. The healing element of fire and the rainbow serpent became her greatest allies and today she infuses the inspiration of these primitive wisdoms into all of her offerings.

Jada currently teaches Expressive Yoga classes at Tidal Elements Healing Arts Studio. For current class information please visit our Events Calendar.

Kylie Judge

Founder of Breath & Being

kylie judge conscious breathwork vernon bc

Kylie is passionate about feeling, breathing, and living our fullest, most vibrant lives while we have the opportunity. For her, that means it is time to get current, to recognize our trauma, feel and release it and recognize that we are not what has happened to us. We do this while opening and cultivating a healthy connection to our hearts, bodies, inner and outer worlds. This directly impacts our ability to be in healthy relationship with our own souls/authentic selves, partners, children, families, co-workers, friends, earth, and beyond. Building connections that nourish us, and ultimately guide us closer to “home”.

As an empath herself, Kylie understands what it means to feel the world and relationships deeply. She offers conscious breathwork, movement, and somatic tools because these are the supports that have and continue to help her process her feelings and experiences and keep returning to ease and grace. Learn more at: breathandbeing.ca

Conscious breathwork is a gentle, safe, and extremely powerful breathing process that facilitates healing and transformation of the body, mind, and spirit. It provides access to the subconscious mind and emotional body while simultaneously offering the opportunity to let-go and let-in. As we open our hearts with breath, we expand our capacity to love and make space for new, healthy experiences.

Kylie currently offers public and private Conscious Breathwork events at Tidal Elements Healing Arts Studio. For current class information please visit our Events Calendar.

Feel free to contact Kylie at hello@breathandbeing.ca for more information.

Paulina Monahan

Heart Yoga Instructor, Meditation Facilitator

Circle-Paulina

Paulina Monahan has been practicing yoga for 25 years. She knows at a personal level, the healing benefits of this remarkable practice for body, mind and spirit. After retiring as a music teacher (for 25 years), Paulina knew that she needed to find something that gave her meaning and purpose in life as a retired person. She believes passionately that yoga heals on many different levels. Yoga is seen by many renowned health experts as a healing modality for people suffering from depression, addiction, PTSD, anxiety, and other types of trauma. Paulina’s first course taken was in trauma informed yoga. This led to a 200 hr yoga teacher training course in Kelowna and another 200 hr teacher training course called Heart Yoga. Heart yoga is about learning to trust our hearts to lead the way, to navigate this interesting and challenging world with a fully integrated mind/heart connection. One of her favourite quotes is by Mother Theresa who said “Most of us will not do great things in this world, but we can do small things with a great deal of love”. Paulina’s classes are a blend of Bikram style yoga (which she practiced for 12yrs) some traditional hatha yoga, and a splash of Chi Gong. Followed by a 20 min. guided meditation while lying down. She says “We take what we learn on the mat….to engage with “mighty hearts” off the mat….and into the world”.

Paulina currently offers Yoga Nidra at Tidal Elements Healing Arts Studio. For current class information please visit our Events Calendar.

Feel free to contact Paulina at paulinamonahan@shaw.ca for more information.
