Jess King BTS

#behindthesweat: Jessica King

This little beam of light #behindthesweat is Jessyca and has been an Energy Exchanger since early last summer! She’s such a delight, super helpful, and helps to make this sangha a happy, positive place.

When she’s not at the studio you can find her eating pizza, watching movies, and just plain hanging out. She likes her quiet time, and likes to relax (don’t we all!). This devote yogi is also studying to receive her 200hr teacher training certificate from Shakti yoga – super cool! Let’s find out more about Jessyca!


Nadine

#behindthesweat: Nadine James

Have you met Nadine yet? Nadine has a calm, kind, gentle energy about her – she makes you feel welcome & at ease no matter who you are! Whether it’s lending a hand, or lending an ear, she’s a friend to all here at the studio!


Paige

#behindthesweat: Paige Mattie

This giggly, happy, dynamo yogi… her name’s Paige. She’s quite the girl #behindthesweat. When she’s not smiling, hugging you, or doing a good deed at the studio you can find her cooking, doing ‘outdoorsy things’, or running around George Street, ;). She’s also a busy commerce student, Nova Scotia-bred, and plays the piano. Neat!


Krista

#behindthesweat: Krista Turpin

It’s about time we introduce Krista Turpin. This gal – she’s positive, hilarious, caring, protective and so, so kind. She’s a friend to all, and we’re so thankful to have her. Krista has been a dedicated yogi #behindthesweat since the summer of 2014.


Lesley

#behindthesweat: Lesley Butler

If you haven’t met Lesley Butler yet, you’re missing out. This dynamic, energetic, hilarious yogi is the coolest, like seriously. She’s super active, and loves being outside rock-climbing, hiking, or hanging out with Queen Bey (NOT that one), her dog!

The beauty of repetition

The Beauty of Repetition

If you’ve been to a few classes at our studio, you’ve probably figured out that Moksha Yoga is more than just our name – it’s a set sequence of yoga poses, taught mostly the same way each time, depending on the teacher and the class. People often ask us why we always practice the same sequence of poses, and why we don’t switch it up more often. Here are just a few great reasons that we believe that consistency is key:

#behindthesweat: Michelle Meister

It’s Michelle! Time to meet this force #behindthesweat. Michelle is a smarty-pants, a firecracker, a beautiful, kind spirit who you always want around. You just know when she’s around – she got the kind of energy you just can’t miss. And we never want to!
When Michelle isn’t at the studio practicing you can find her at the gym, studying politics, reading… pretty much always learning. And if you still can’t find her, she’s down the street serving you the most delicious tacos at your favourite neighbourhood Oyster House.😉. Michelle began exchanging her energy with us last June, and we’ve been smitten ever since.

#behindthesweat: Laura Huckle

Next up on #behindthesweat is Laura Huckle, our very own proper, tea-drinking lady😉. Laura’s been gracing us with her fabulous presence, British humour and accent for about two and a half years. And we’re lucky to have her!

Apart from yoga Laura likes to cook and loves being outside. Laura claims that’s why she’s still here – NL’s rugged beauty made her stay. She describes herself as ‘bubbly’, like ‘a good glass of champagne’. Read on to learn more about out fav British import.
