Born and raised on Vancouver Island, never more than a few blocks from the beach, Danielle’s connection to the water is one that has never left her, following her to Kitsilano where she now calls home. Danielle taught a number of group fitness classes at V.I. Fitness Centre, with her favourite being Group Power—a fast-paced class that combined body weight and barbell training through a sequence of choreographed exercises performed to the beat of the music. Now, Danielle loves to host outdoor bootcamps, using nature’s obstacles as equipment. She also leads a weekly guided run through Stanley Park as part of The Westin Bayshore’s runWESTIN program. As a fan of variety, and numerous training styles, Danielle keeps participants on their toes with what she calls a ‘mixed bag’ of drills to keep them motivated, challenged, and sweaty.
Yoga, the practice of self discovery. Every practice, every pose we have the opportunity to learn a little bit more about ourselves. To practice self love. Yoga helps me feel grounded, and gives the opportunity to be with my body and breath. To land on our mats every day without judgement or expectations, simply show up. I want my students to be challenged and play. Maybe learn a new posture….sweat a little, cry, laugh at how serious we can sometimes be, listen to some funky tunes and simply let go. I’m here as a guide for my students to explore, grow and shine. I love creating new sequences, intelligently opening the body, building pose upon pose to go a little deeper. I am continually inspired by my teachers and thankful for their wisdom, honesty and love. I am grateful to each person I have met and will meet. The universe is a never-ending source of knowledge, inspiration and happiness and I am always open to the life lessons that are being shared. I love the feeling of the sunshine on my skin, spending time in nature, family and friends, my dog Emma!
Leyre Murillo grew up in small seaside town in the north of Spain, San Sebastian. She started her yoga journey more than 7 years ago when she moved to Canada to embark on a new adventure.
She has continued to expand her love of yoga by diving into teaching and in 2015 graduated from Karma Teachers, and completed another 200YTT Yoga training with Tina Pashumati and 500 Hour Pranayama Teacher training with Engel Pherecydes. Currently, she is taking an international personal development course to keep exploring and expanding her knowledge and works in a global company called Rainbow Kids Yoga, making a difference in kids and families.
Breathwork and Yoga were the most profoundly liberating discovery of Leyre’s life. It opened a new door to understand the patterns of the mind, how that affects the body and the way she looks at life. Through this journey, she learnt how to organize the thoughts in a way that choices became more grounded and life flows easily towards her dreams.

Caroline’s journey with yoga began before she ever stepped foot into a yoga studio. Before becoming a yoga teacher, Caroline studied for her Bachelor’s Degree in Child and Youth Care Counselling; a passion to help other’s who needed it the most. Through her education, she found an interest in the practice of Mindfulness, and how to incorporate it into her practice with youth. The practice of Mindfulness drew her in to Yoga, inspiring her to take her first class. After taking her first class, Caroline found herself registered for a 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training in East Vancouver with Jolene Bayda and Troy Turi. Caroline’s classes offer a combination of connecting the movement of the body with the pace of the breath, creating movements that feel good for YOUR body. Caroline’s awareness of the body and mindful movements, allows students with injuries to take her classes safely with alternative postures. Off of the mat, Caroline can be found by the sea, never too far from any body of water. If you are ready to move and be moved, meet Caroline on the mat!”
