Combining the physical postures of yoga with pranayama (breath work) and meditation, Sheri will focus on alignment and connecting mind with the body and soul. "Yoga is the human quest for remembering our true nature, our deepest selves'. Her classes aim to be thought provoking, fun and an opportunity for you to connect with your deeper self.
In Sheri's class....know that there is a place for you! Be prepared to sink deep into your heart, to challenge your mind and to stretch your body. All levels are welcome!

If anyone knows Alissa, they know how crazy that is!!! She is not a quiet, corner-sitter! Stepping on that bike and putting on the microphone allowed her to step out of her daily life and pour herself into something new - build a new energy and passion. It helped open up doors to the parts of herself. She couldn’t find and it re-awakened an energy and zest for life that now carries into everything she does.
Spin is so much more than just a workout. It allows each individual to ride at his/her skill level and to find their own challenge. It pushes physical limits and builds mental strength/character at the same time. And who doesn’t love a wicked playlist at the same time??
Spin has done more for Alissa than she ever could have imagined, and she is so thankful for the opportunity to share that with all of you!!!

“Just be, right now, here; and breathe. Stop questioning every little thing, stop analyzing how it should be and let go of the control you hold so tightly onto: and begin to trust the magic of yourself.” Nikki Rowe

During this period of self-reflection, Michelene began to have a vision of sharing Yoga with others. Being an abundant-bodied person, she knew that some things can feel inaccessible to people because of their size or abilities. She also knew that the benefits of a Yoga practice are universally important and the practice itself is much more accessible than most people realize. From these realities, she created a vision of becoming a Yoga instructor so she could show people of all sizes and abilities that Yoga is for them.
In January of 2019, Michelene took her first step toward realizing this vision. She registered for the 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training program which was offered in Lloydminster through a partnership between Pure Vibe Studios and Empowered Yoga. After countless hours of study and practice, Michelene graduated from the program and began her journey as a Yoga instructor.
Michelene’s intention as an instructor is to provide a Yin-like experience to those seeking balance in our Yang-like culture. Her teaching style is influenced by Slow Flow, Restorative and Yin Yoga. She believes that all anyone needs in order to start a Yoga practice is an open mind, courage to be vulnerable, and a safe space in which to learn. Anyone who is ready to step out of their comfort zone and onto the mat will be greeted with gratitude and kindness in a judgement-free space. Michelene invites you to explore the benefits of a Yoga practice for yourself, believing as B.K.S. Iyengar said, “If you can breathe, you can do Yoga.”
Her love for music has always been the driving force behind her classes. She believes that music is one of the reasons we can push ourselves to limits we never imagined possible. She has frequently described herself as 'music obsessed' - constantly looking for fresh new tunes for her playlists which she claims she never uses twice! A mother of 4 and a business owner, spin has always been her escape. She strives to motivate others with her energy and music to feel the same. Her hopes for every class is that you feel her passion, and to develop your own passion too!
After class she is hoping you are left feeling hyped, happy and ready for a high five!

Jennifer knows that cardio compliments weightlifting perfectly and has been teaching Spin for 3 years. Leading Spin classes is one of her favourite places to be outside of the gym! Planning each individual playlist is one of the most enjoyable parts of her day! There is no need to fall into the same old rut with music! Exploring different genres and decades for the ultimate variety helps keep each class fresh and challenging! Jennifer also knows that constantly challenging your body and mind will help you reach your fitness goals faster and loves mix her classes up from Pure Ride30/50 to Pure HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training); to Pure Endurance. All 3 varieties allow progression and make it easy to see your own development as an athlete and rider.
Jennifer can’t wait to meet you and hear about your fitness journey whether you are just beginning or a lifetime athlete, everyone’s story is unique and important, and she’d love to be a part of yours!
Having explored many types of physical fitness over the years I learned that you don’t have to practice vigorous exercise, which can be very hard on your body, to achieve noticeable results. Slowing down and stepping to your edge, while listening to your body leads to strength with the extra benefit of creating space, opening opportunities to make empowered choices, on and off the mat.
I will encourage students to slow down a little with Slow Flow, Restorative, Yin, and Therapeutic inspired classes.
I look forward to expanding my practice and knowledge with further specific training in my future.
See you on the mat.
“It is through the alignment of the body that I discovered the alignment of my mind, self, and intelligence.” BKS Iyengar
Christy has also completed her yoga training with a deep love for the time she spent in Vancouver diving in to the yin practice. She has found that the yang of spin is such a great compliment to the yin of a yoga practice!
Christy’s deep love for learning has led her down many creative paths, discovering ways to explore mindfulness, intention setting, community and the power of the written word. More recently, through the enneagram and expressing herself through artwork. Check out her tattoo the next time you see her!
Christy is also a long time resident of Lloydminster and stays busy with her active family! You can find Christy here on Tuesday mornings and online @thechristylife.
Jenna fell in love with fitness while attending group fitness classes almost nine years ago. She has taught a variety of classes over the years and enjoys challenging her participants to be the best version of them. After attending her first few spin classes she was addicted. The intense workout, the great music, the team atmosphere are just a few reasons she became a certified Spin Instructor. She truly has found her passion teaching spin and wants to share it with each of you!
