Yoga mats were provided for use for the evening by The Local Lululemon.
Our instructor Kay Ghajar (@kayghajar) has been practicing yoga for almost 10 years. She began exploring different styles of yoga after taking courses in positive psychology, which informed on the benefits of yoga and meditation. After a traumatic life event in university and failed progression through traditional counselling, she started practicing yoga and keeping a gratitude jar, which began her healing process and changed her outlook on life.
Kay received her 200-hour teaching certificate at Power Yoga Canada and will lead us through an amazing Power Yoga session. Her detailed, descriptive instruction and high energy makes the class exciting, comprehendible and achievable for the women in the class who are all at different levels.
Carla Catherwood, the CEO/Founder of ARMY of SASS Dance Program know’s what it’s like to start from the bottom and work your way up.
Dedicated, focused and driven to detail best describes her work habits. With over 20 years professionally in the dance industry and 13 years as a self-made entrepreneur, she has worked not only as a professional dancer, choreographer and producer, but most importantly as an entrepreneurs, teacher, and mentor to many developing up-and-coming dancers and entrepreneurs.
Her mentoring and teaching style consists of self- effacing and groundbreaking exercises that allow people to see, feel, and nourish the very talent and joy that lives within them.
Outside of a world of dance credits from her late teens and throughout her twenties, Carla is most proud of the work she’s done developing her brand, company and licensing program “ARMY of SASS” https://armyofsass.com/
Our favourite (and most nerve wracking part at first) was when Carla made everyone "strut"!!
Carla also lead us in a discussion about our priorities and how to put ourselves first!
Kay then lead us into her one hour Power Yoga Session.
Extra special thank you again to our assistant yoga instructors.
