Tony Sidhu

Certified Yoga Instructor - Holistic BodyWorx - RTY200 Yoga Alliance
Certified Practitioner of Thai Massage - Still Light Centre - Toronto

Tony first stumbled across Yoga during his early working life when he found himself taking “Kundalini Yoga” classes as an outlet to the everyday stresses of work life.   During this time he realized that there was truly something transformational  about yoga, which always left him feeling internally balanced, strengthened and at peace, after participating in a class.   Many years later, he found himself establishing a weekly practice by participating in “yoga” classes at a local gym.  To deepen and expand his interest in Yoga, Tony decided to pursue the Yoga Teacher Training through Holistic Bodyworx.  Since then, he has been teaching at various studios in both heated and non-heated environments.  Throughout his classes, Tony strives to teach yoga with a specific focus on postural alignment, breathing and relaxation techniques that will allow participants to become stronger, more balanced and relaxed.  “For me, there is no greater investment in one’s physical, mental and spiritual health than through the practice of Yoga except being able to teach and guide others where I truly feel privileged and honoured to have the opportunity to do so".


Yvonne Di-Biase

Certified Yoga Instructor
Certified Pilates Instructor
Black Belt in Karate, CMAC
Black Belt in Kobudo, CMAC
Tai Chi Certification, CMAC

Yvonne lives Yoga and Pilates every day. She has cultivated a commitment both through her practice and meditation. She started out in the Martial Arts receiving black belts in Karate, Kobudo, and Tai Chi. Shortly after, she received her teacher’s certificate for teaching Yoga and Pilates.  She sees the body as energy and having explored the element of energetic flow understands the benefits of reenergizing our bodies.  As we create lines of energy through the body, we also create space through the joints and spine and as our bodies open, our minds begin to open.  She understands that balance comes from a calm and focused mind.

She teaches a hatha flow yoga class where the mind, body and breathe are connected, moving from one move to the next with mindfulness and breath.  She also teaches a vigorous Pilates class for a whole body workout .

"All of life is contained in this moment, in the space between thoughts, in the pause between breaths.” Stephen Shaw

She encourages her students to let their light shine both in the studio and in their everyday lives as it will subconsciously allow others to do the same.

Sandra Suljanovic

Certified Pilates Teacher - Holistic BodyWorx

Sandra has been practicing Pilates for 10 years, and actively teaching for 7. She really enjoys how Pilates balances and integrates her body and stimulates a mind-movement connection.

Sandra wanted to share that experience with others and that led her to teaching. Today her clients are in a broad range of age and abilities, from marathon runners to clients with MS and Parkinson's and her biggest reward is when she see their faces light up when they achieve a goal they thought would never reach.

Sandra's style is intuitive and focused and she like to coach clients to a deeper awareness of movement and strength and toward integration and awareness of the whole body.

“The Pilates Method of Body Conditioning is complete coordination of body, mind and spirit.“ Joseph Pilates

 

Selina aya (Satya)

Certified Yoga Teacher By Sivananada Yoga –New York
Certified Energy Healing Programme By Dalida Iruoha,Medical Intuitive

 

Satya is an Intuitive Energy Healer and Yoga Teacher. She is compassionate, loving, supportive, and honest. She is connected with the spirit realm and offers a safe and sacred space for you to open up and to heal. The healing services and classes she offers include: yoga, meditation, sound healing, energy healing, and intuitive counselling.

From a young age, Selina aka “Satya” had an inkling that there was an existence beyond what she could see. It was only until her early adulthood that she explored yoga and connected with its holistic practice. “Yoga opened up a gateway to access myself on a deeper level. I became aware of my thoughts and emotions.” Meditation became the next discipline for Satya. She was inspired to self-study by reading self-help books, reflect, journal, and meditate to help understand herself better. She incorporated tai chi basics in her meditations to learn how to feel energy.

A “truth-seeker”, Satya is driven to unravel only truth. She wanted to know the origin of yoga and the true meaning of this ancient practise. A couple years later, she studied to become a yoga teacher under the traditional teachings of Sivananda Yoga in an ashram at Woodbourne, NY. Undergoing profound experiences on this mountain, Satya was determined to share this knowledge with the world. At the end of her teacher training, her gurus meditated upon her the spiritual name “Satya”, which means “truth” in Sanskrit.

Over the years, Satya created her own style of yoga and called it “Yoga Chi”. It combines all of her healing skills in one — yoga, meditation/mindfulness, and energy healing. Energy Healing is a healing modality that Satya intuitively connected with throughout her awakened spiritual path. She took a course on Energy Healing with her mentor Dalida Iruoha (Medical Intuitive) which has increased her knowledge, awareness, skills, and sensitivity as an Empath and Intuitive Healer.

“I have a calling to use my intuitive healing gifts to help oneself to bring awareness of the self.”
