Shannon_Pose_ArmExtend_chandlier_Half Fr


Barre, Pilates, Sculpt

Quiet and introspective upon first meet, Shannon's delicate, and congenial demeanour lends to a sly workout and undercover sweat. Just like her actions are smooth, grounded and calculated, you can expect to receive the same silky soft delivery of an astonishingly rigorous and gnarly workout. Not one for being in-genuine or wasting your time, you'll get a direct, quick n dirty. With a soft, yet firm tone and calculated coaching style you find yourself turning off your brain in class and enjoying feeling the music and mastering cool movements. A bit of a Ballerina, Shannon draws from her dance background, love of movement and sweet musical tastes to deliver a really soft, sweepy, dancey class in an easy to follow sweaty, hot sneak up. 


Sign: Virgo


What makes you feel alive? Dancing.


Vice: Coffee & hashbrowns


What is your favourite way to spend the weekend? Not waking up to an alarm, fresh coffee and a homemade breakfast- usually pancakes topped with fruit. Getting fresh air and exercise.

This Aries sun/Scorpio moon gal is spicy, AND so nicey - bringing the burn and the mellow to her classes, with some space for free movement! Moriah has a background as a registered massage therapist and her understanding of physiology is evident in her flows. Her practice finds you noticeably improving yours - with special attention paid to proper placements and poses. You can expect sneaky strengthening and mobility moves, sweet tunes - obviously, and a whole lotta light hearted fun with Moriah! You’ll barely even notice the extra lil’ flutter kicks ‘cause you’ll be focused on balance as you move through slow, exaggerated transitions - and the sweat rolling off your brow. 


Sign: Aries Sun / Scorpio Moon


What makes you feel alive? Laughing and crying, lol


If you could pick anyone to have dinner with, who would it be and where? Ani Difranco at her house


Most embarrassing teaching moment? I was so into whatever I was teaching, the class was nearly full, probably 40 students in the space, I was walking around while instructing and watching the students intently, when bang! I walked sideways so hard into a giant pillar that was in the middle of room. I was very startled and confused lol, everyone fell out of their pose and we all laughed


What is your favourite Yoga pose/exercise? Exercise - Deadlifts, Yoga Pose - Warrior 1

Yoga, Sculpt

Obsessed with cultivating community, confidence, cats & a bit of comedy, that basically sums up a Kailey class. You'll feel welcome as if you just arrived at your best friends house, supported, and treated to a slinky, stretchy and zesty practice. Like a feline, class will be a mix of snoozing in the sun and surprise pouncing and playing! A lover of music, enjoy sweating, smiling and singing along during class. With a discerning eye for individuality, Kailey cleverly coaches and ensures an open path for all. As a cool cat you might develop a crush at first meet, but you'll keep returning because of her mastery in recognizing that we are each our own brand of wild.


Sign: Sun in Virgo, Moon in Pisces, Aquarius Rising.  Does that mean something to you because I’ve been told it's important.


What makes you feel alive? Back bends, and jumping into any body of water.


Describe your classes in one word:  Juicyfruit. A natural delicious snack, a tribute to good music (RIP BIGGIE), and packed with intense awesome flavor but it doesn’t last too long… but just long enough.


What is your favourite way to spend the weekend? I love spending the weekends getting my sweat on, then my brunch on.


What are you terrified of?  I am absolutely terrified of centipedes/millipedes (BARF), and not being my truest self.
