Meet our team of beautiful human beings

Mathew Sarsfield (he/him)
Mathew Sarsfield (he/him)Yoga + Meditation Instructor
Mathew’s journey of personal growth accelerated in 2015, when he moved from Ontario to Alberta in search of a calm, quiet connection to nature and self. Discovering connection to breath during long, isolating climbs in the Canadian Rockies led Mathew along a path toward the practice of yoga. Through dedicated practice on his mat, he learned to channel the breath, body, and mind connection to achieve a state of calmness and self-awareness, releasing tension in the body. Frequent visits to a Buddhist monastery, where he practiced sitting in silence with the monastics of the temple, deepened this existing connection of mindfulness and resulted in a strong meditation practice.

Having been impacted by many extraordinary yoga instructors over the years, teaching yoga was always something Mathew aspired to do. He pursued certification as a RYT 200 as well as foundational meditation teacher training so that he could share the benefits of yoga and meditation with others. His classes will invite you to breathe deeply and move with intention so that you can actualize your most authentic self and find balance from within.

In 2008, Nicole wandered into a yoga class and found an amazing stillness that has captivated her ever since. She believes that yoga can bring balance to our lives; helping us to connect authentically with ourselves and others while working to heal our bodies and minds. Yoga is one of the greatest joys, challenges, and teachers in Nicole’s life, and for that she is determined to be a lifelong student and practitioner.

Nicole completed her Yoga Teacher Training in 2014, followed by Yin, Restorative, Meditation, and other training, including that of Reiki Master Teacher. She continues to learn from the many amazing teachers who have shared their wisdom with her, and she is grateful for the opportunity to be able to walk this path of yoga with others on their own personal journeys.

Mic Mayne (she/her)
Mic Mayne (she/her)Yoga Instructor
With the enthusiasm and curiosity of an excited child, Mic encourages her students to experiment with movement and rejoice in the accomplishments of our ever-evolving bodies. She coaches in a compassionate way to celebrate capabilities and to confront challenges as unexpected and unrealized potential.

Trained as a Registered Nurse, Mic learned early on to adapt to constantly changing conditions. This skill served her well when side-lined due to injuries and chronic pain, and her love of learning propelled her to exercise her mind when her body was unwilling. She achieved certification as both a Personal Training Specialist and a Healthy Weight Loss Coach from Canfitpro, and came to yoga when injured to find it changing her life in amazing ways. She graduated from 200 hour Hatha Yoga Teacher Training at Yoga for Today in 2019, and has since added to her knowledge through trainings in Pain Care Yoga, Yoga for Children, and Yin Yoga.

Music has also been a huge part of Mic’s life, so you may find her humming, singing or spontaneously dancing in class – feel free to join in!

Jody started her yoga journey with a 30day challenge in 2015, and fell in love with the way she felt: calmer, more centred, and even more energized. Having become estranged from her family a few years later, she again turned to yoga to keep her mental health balanced.

Jody’s journey of healing and regulating her nervous system transitioned into finding her passion to helping others do the same. She became a 200hr certified yoga teacher and Breath work coach, and is in the process of obtaining her 30hr Restorative teacher certification with plans to continue learning and growing through more certifications that help to bring the mind, body, and breath into balance.

Jody’s mission is to help guide all bodies to move, breathe, and flow a little more fully and peacefully on and off the mat.

Jen Paras
Jen ParasPilates Instructor
Growing up on Vancouver Island, yoga, meditation, and an overall holistic lifestyle was just the norm for Jen. After having her 3rd child, she searched for an activity outside of motherhood, and although the role of Pilates instructor was always a bucket list item, it felt unachievable. After visiting the Space with its welcoming and safe environment, however, Jen knew that this was the place to accomplish her goal. Proud to be living her best life and extremely grateful to be helping others accomplish their exercise goals, Jen is working towards completion of the Barre Body Mat Pilates certification.

Rikki believes that yoga should be accessible to everyone.

Rikki is passionate about strengthening a mind-body connection through yoga, and hopes to translate that passion to anyone who attends her classes. She is also a dedicated yoga student herself, believing that lifelong learning is key to continuing to grow your practice.

Ashlea Schumacher (she/her)
Ashlea Schumacher (she/her)Yoga Instructor
Ashlea found yoga during a time of uncertainty in her life. Newly divorced with two kids at her side, Ashlea learned that she needed to take care of herself first in order to be the best Mom she could be. She completed her 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training in 2016 with Empowered Yoga, and found a deep love and respect for movement. While she enjoys practising all forms of yoga, Ashlea’s craft has been designed to teach the slower and more deliberate movements of Yin, Restorative Yoga, and Callisthenics – refining postures to build strength, endurance, flexibility and coordination. Her motivation for teaching comes from a desire to help people find the power within, and to offer a bit of reprieve from their daily routine.

Since attending her first YTT in 2016, Ashlea has deepened her education through Empowered Yoga with 25 hour Restorative Yoga and 25 hour PTSD Trauma Training, and plans to continue her teacher trainings with additional modalities to obtain her 500 hour teaching certificate.

Jodie M
Jodie MYoga Instructor
Jodie is a certified and registered yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance, and has been an elementary school teacher since 2010.

Jodie encourages students to enjoy their practise through the invitation of self-exploration and honour. With suggestive mindful insight, she takes you on a journey that is light hearted, rhythmical and fun. No practice is ever the same with different playlists and varying intentions.
