Sarah's first discovered her yoga journey when she was pregnant with her daughter Isla. The practice provided her with a sense of grounding which allowed her to feel at peace despite the major shift her life was about to take.
Sarah revisited the practise again and again at various points and knew that she needed more, she was craving more. She jumped into her yoga teacher training in 2015 and hasn't looked back. Sarah immediately started to get her feet wet by teaching outdoor community classes during the summer months, she then transitioned to a small studio space to offer weekly classes.
In 2016 she really started to expand more giving herself the time to adopt a daily home practise, taking part on the committee that organizes valley yoga fest, continuing her weekly classes, working full time as a hairstylist and of course raising a spitfire toddler. Despite the chaos of life around her, the yoga practice was there, always a constant reminder to stay grounded and to fill her own cup before pouring out to others.
Sarah is beyond excited to take on this new adventure with Cassie that is Mooncoast Yoga. It was a natural shift that required no hesitation. Sarah has always had a passion to learn and share knowledge with others. She is excited to share space with others on their mats through weekly classes, as well as collaborate with Cassie to create various retreats and workshops. Sarah is excited to help others discover what yoga can do for them in their life and hopes you'll join her on the adventure.

A bit about Cassie
Cassie first stumbled upon her yoga journey looking for a physical getaway and ended up taking on an adventure of a lifetime. Her yoga practice serves her not only on her mat but in every aspect of her life.
As a certified addictions counsellor and working with aboriginal youth, Cassie uses yoga to help herself and her clients learn new beginnings while being mindful and staying in the moment.
Cassie uses her knowledge she has gained from yoga in other activities in her life that she thoroughly enjoys such as rock climbing, being by the ocean, spending time with friends, family and her kitties, house renovating, being crafty and so much more.
“Yoga has helped me become who I am and has certainly built on my present attributes: patience, confidence, being goal-orientated, creativity and more. This is something one can practice on a daily basis without even having to get on their mat; to help find peace in the most difficult of times or to take on the happiest of moments, in the moment.”
Cassie wants nothing more than to pass this great fortune onto others. Start your own incredible journey and allow Cassie to be a guide in what could be the best adventure of your life.

Get to know Lynn
As an RMT and mother of four, Lynn has spent over 25 years nurturing and caring for others. In a desperate attempt to find some sanity during those crazy, chaotic years, Lynn stumbled across and began practicing Yoga.
Right from the very beginning, she developed a deep love and appreciation for the sense of peace, inner balance and strength she found while spending time on her mat. There, Lynn realized she could simply STOP….and BREATHE. As a result, she learned how to tune in to and respect her body.
Today, Lynn’s passion is connecting with others to share knowledge and develop skills on how to create and nurture a healthy relationship with our minds, bodies and hearts. She firmly believes that practicing Yoga is the most powerful tool we can use to achieve that goal.
Its not about being able to bend your body like a pretzel. Its not about being super flexible. Its about showing up on your mat, connecting with breath…and seeing where your body will take you.
'Rather than focusing on what we CAN’T do, let’s work with what we CAN do. Bottom line is… If you have a heartbeat…and you can breathe - YOU CAN DO YOGA!!’
Something About Ciara
Ciara is a self-proclaimed wellness and fitness nerd. She was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at eleven years old, and feels that this led to her passion surrounding health. Diabetes has never stood in her way. She is passionate about helping others in breaking down the barriers that may be holding them back in their own lives.
Ciara is part Registered Nurse, working in Primary Care, and part Registered Yoga Teacher with a 200 hour certification in Hatha Yoga (in her opinion, a perfect combo!)
Ciara started attending yoga classes in a search for a new workout, but left with so much more! She noticed a lovely, peaceful and satisfied feeling after yoga that would last throughout the day. She was hooked, and naturally, needed to learn more.
When Ciara isn’t working as an RN or donning her yoga pants, she can be found spending quality time with her husband and pets. She loves reading, spending time at the lake, stand-up paddle boarding, biking, sipping coffee and basking in the sun.
