Carolina Bergonzoni is a dance artist, yoga teacher and scholar currently based in Vancouver, British Columbia. Her practice...in life, in dance, in yoga, as a teacher…is marked by a negotiation between what she likes and what she needs. She likes freedom and creativity, but she needs stability and strength. She loves practice, numbers, and method, but sometimes she has to let that go and be more receptive. Her yoga practice is her way to find this balance.

In 2011, Carolina graduated as a Dance Educator and Community Engagement Facilitator. Since then, she has been working on building a community of movers and thinkers, dancing and discussing philosophy with people of all ages.

Chiara was born with a huge loving and giving heart that moved through her early life in the form of dance. Movement has been her form of expression since she could walk. This is how she found yoga.

After moving back to Vancouver she continued her practice and education in different movement modalities. Training in Mat Pilates to find further strength in mind and body, she sees Pilates as a therapeutic practice to increase body awareness and loves to help her students discover new ways of reconnecting to their bodies. Her innate ability to connect with all different types of people allows her to be open and welcoming to anyone who comes into her classes.

Joni has been engaging the question of body/mind connections since her early 20s when she joined a zen monastery outside of LA and studied meditation on and off for two years. This contemplative work combined well with the study of contemporary dance at SFU and later a two year study of zen shiatsu at Sourcepoint. Dance, meditation, and the study of alignment inform her teaching of both Hatha and Vinyasa yoga.
