Prana Yoga Collective described

Recently I had the distinct pleasure to work with the lovely owners and instructors of the newly opened Yoga Collective in downtown Kamloops. Described as “a quaint space for intimate classes that are very beginner friendly and welcoming to all, with a focus on energy, light, and positivity. Our teachers will boost your mood, help you improve your practice, and ease your mind.” Their website can be visited here. They also have Instagram and Facebook pages.

About the Owners

Ashley’s yoga journey started in her early 20’s as she travelled for college. She was privileged to learn from many different teachers in various places. Breathwork, meditation, and kundalini are areas she loves to explore. And she believes deeply in the mindfulness benefits of the practice, more than just the physical.

After returning to Kamloops in 2018 Ashley has enjoyed learning from local guides such as: Melissa Hubbard, Wayne Porterfield, Dina Mcleod, Nicole Aracki, and Leilani Ried. Ashley completed her 200 hour YTT in 2021 and will complete a Kundalini teacher training in March of 2024. 

Alysia’s yoga journey started in her mid 20’s and she quickly fell in love with the practice. After the birth of her son 5 years later, she struggled to find who she was, jumping into Yoga Teacher Training to help figure it all out. She never expected that training to completely transform and heal her life. Committed to yoga as a daily practice and a way of living, she brings some spice to her flow classes and enjoys facilitating Moon Meditation classes.

Alysia is currently completing her Somatic Educator certification. She offers unique perspectives to turn inwards and focus on the body, as well as the breath throughout class.
