Jen: "I’m a Kootenays girl with a passion for travel. I was born and raised in Kimberley and love everything our area has to offer, hiking, biking, skiing, camping... you will have a hard time finding an activity I don’t love!
I got started in yoga as a way to heal from other injuries, and one thing led to another... I found myself in a teacher training with Sue!
Fast forward to today, I have left my previous career in industry to run Mountain Life Hot Yoga, and continue to explore my passion for learning and yoga. I am a busy mother of four amazing kids, ages 14mths to 15years as well as two black lab crosses and two incredibly annoying and yet loveable cats.
I thrive on staying busy, and active, and enjoy bringing my practice into the studio to share with others."
Sue is a ERYT500 (Experienced 500hr Registered Yoga Teacher), RPYT (Registered Prenatal Yoga Teacher), Fitness Instructor Specialist, and Zumba instructor. She has owned a hot yoga studio and enjoys bringing yoga into the lives of others.
On a personal note, she loves being outdoors, embracing nature, walking with her dogs, and traveling.
Sue has been teaching yoga since 2004 and is excited to share her passion with other students on their journey into teaching.
In February 2019 she had major abdominal surgery and is now exploring healing and core strengthening style of yoga.

"I’m a Father, I have son and a teenage daughter. I own and run small local business in the construction industry.
I’ve been living in Kimberley BC for 15 years.I love the outdoors and camping with my kids, exploring new places in B.C. and hope to travel more now that they are older. I’ve been practicing yoga for 2 years. I took my teacher training with Sue Inshaw through EKYA. She’s my hero.
Football and construction have been very hard on my body and when I discovered yoga it gave me a way to heal and compliment my life in many ways. What yoga has done for me mentally and physically is beyond words,

"I have been teaching yoga for four years and have just recently joined the MLHY team. I love building connection and hope that by being my imperfect self that it gives others permission to do the same. I teach a variety of different types of classes from Hatha and Vinyasa yoga, to breathwork, meditation, ball rolling (Roll Model® Method) and yoga book clubs. I love to learn in all its forms, through relationships, movement, and reading and am always asking the question 'Why?' and seeing where that takes me.
She just wants you to rock your body!

Kristi has been leading classes for 15 years, with her passion being to inspire women to feel strong and powerful in their bodies. Her background in group fitness, including strength and conditioning, bootcamps, step aerobics and spin led her to a yoga class at her gym in 2006. She fell in love and was inspired by the movement, rhythm and breath of a Vinyasa class. In 2015 She completed her 200HR Yoga training with EK Yoga Academy and has been teaching in the hot room for 3 years. While she teaches a variety of styles, Kristi loves the energy of a dynamic and creative flow, linking movement and breath with power and strength.
Aside from the hot room, you can usually find her on the trails, at the beach or working her dream business at Wild Wellness Massage.
