In the summer of 2011, a friend invited Lisa to a Rose Ceremony at the Radha Yoga & Eatery on Main St in Vancouver, BC. Little did she know her body, mind and heart would readily respond to the Teachings of Swami Radha, and she soon found herself attending weekly Satsangs, classes, and giving through Karma Yoga. The experience of connecting deeply with one lineage is of immense value to her and continues to be her source for growth and renewal. In 2018 she took the YDC course at the Yasodhara Ashram and the subsequent Hatha Yoga Teacher Training in 2019.
After ten years of being a regular student of many varieties of yoga, Liz came upon the Yasodhara community, shortly after which she completed the three-month Yoga Development Course (2017) at an ashram tucked into the Kootenay mountains. It was there that philosophy and devotion began to integrate with the physical practice.
For Liz, yoga is a path of awareness and the goal is ultimately health: physical, mental, emotional, spiritual.

Joy fell in love with Yoga as a tool for transformation at Yasodhara Ashram, where she completed the Yoga Development Course and Hatha Yoga Teacher Training in 2007. Upon returning to Vancouver, she began teaching Hatha Yoga and offering Satsangs at Radha Yoga and Eatery, and later completed further teacher training in Hidden Language Hatha Yoga and Dreams and Kundalini. Currently an adult educator and a Registered Therapeutic Counsellor, Joy is passionate about the potential of each individual to heal, learn, and grow. She believes that if we each shine the Light that we carry in our hearts, together, we can make this world a brighter place.
