designer | yoga & spin instructor
I believe life is all about little, wonderful details…. whether by which, I am transforming a *house* into a *home* or facilitating the opening of every corner of one’s heart & mind to encourage love, strength & space… I am fortunate enough to have crazy passion that encompasses the tangible beauty of design details & the untouchable, raw details that unfold when your feet hit your yoga mat. I have been an interior designer for the last 13 years, my career taking me from YYC to Over Seas & I fell in love with the balance yoga gave me, through the demands of my career. I completed my first Ashtanga teacher training over 8 years ago in Southern California & began teaching shortly after, wanting to spread the love!! I have had the opportunity to participate in continued education & intensives since my initial training with some amazing mentors; David Swenson, Tim Miller, Seane Corn…and not to mention, the lessons learned from hours on the mat with some incredible students. (aka the real-time teachers ;) Despite design being my first love, I found a connection in yoga that is incomparable. Guiding people to uncover their own inner teachers, being a building block to a community of strong, sweaty bodies, exceeding expectations, pushing limits, motivating & inspiring each other…all wonderful little details created on the 4 corners of a yoga mat. What’s not to love??
Jennifer Mehalko instructs the following:
- Vinyasa Flow Yoga
- Sunrise Flow
A class of exploration for syncing movement and breath. We will uncover the magic of non-sequenced flow, and how the wide array of postures linked with pranayama will help support and build a strong mind, body and heart. Each class will be a different experience based on your teacher’s creative choice and background to bring you to new depths and your edge on that particular day. Vinyasa yoga is an opportunity to challenge yourself while accessing a non-traditional flow and the way in which you show up on your mat. How we do one thing is how we do everything. We can’t wait to meet you on your mat, and see where our movement takes us. Everyone is welcome to this class. It will meet you wherever you are in your own personal practice.
“movement steeped in breath + strength” Jennifer Mehalko
“A class that is always slightly different and inspired by what I am working through in my own life and personal practice. Each class is like a fingerprint, unique and different… just like us...” Kate W. Mak
“Strong and sweaty” Adriana Britton
“I adore this style of yoga as it helps us to remember our inner strength through the manifestation of the physical body. I’m inspired to teach this because it brings people to the edge of their perceived limitations and encourages them to get curious.” Stacey Irvine
Start your day with awareness, movement, and breath with this vinyasa based practice. This class will get your heart pumping, while working with your body post sleep. An energetic practice that blends sweat, strength and flexibility in a class that thoroughly tones the body and disciplines the mind. Everyone welcome.
“There’s something extra special about these early morning classes because everybody in the room took the extra effort to set the alarm and set off while most of the city is still sleeping. It’s a warm, inviting kind of energy and I use that to gently wake the deepest parts of ourselves before firing it up to set you for the rest of the day...”
Kate W. Mak
“A slow, sacred, rhythmic start to the day. Focus is on alignment and breath and deep, intimate self love.” Jamie Cameron
“I believe in the power of intention, ritual and following the rhythms of mother nature. Sunrise yoga brings me closer to each of these practices at the same time...” Stacey Irvine
