Client Feedback


"Yoga classes with Irena are pure magic! She is a true representation of everything that yoga means. She is kind, patient and always welcoming. Her classes are approachable, easy to follow, and she gives variations for all the asanas, which makes them ideal for any level of yoga practice. They are soft but at the same time, challenging, helping me to move out of my comfort zone."

- Isabel T, Vancouver Island BC


“From the first day I met Irena, I knew I was in good hands.  I was very nervous about my first hot yoga class and she walked me through the whole process and put me at ease! Honestly, if it wasn't for her kindness and understanding, I probably would not have returned for a second class. She gives a clear direction along with alternatives to suit everyone's abilities and I would recommend her guidance for any level or age."

- Darcie W, Vancouver Island BC


“I was thrilled to have your platform to follow over this very difficult period (covid19)!"

- Annie C, Toronto ON


"She makes me feel comfortable within my own limitations while encouraging me to strive for a deeper stretch or better form.  Irena’s instruction is easy to follow as she demonstrates movements and expectations and lays out cues ahead of time. I always leave a class feeling positive, clear minded, and immediately look forward to returning to her class. I’d recommend anyone attend Irena’s instruction if you’re looking to learn how to move safely while achieving great technique and in an welcoming, inclusive environment."
