Joy discovered YogaFit in 2007 and found a practice that created strength in the mind & body that also aligned with her fitness background. Her passion for yoga grew as she explored the parallels of yoga on and off the mat. In pursuit of sharing that passion she completed her 200 RYT Yoga teacher training through YogaFit and is E-RYT 200 with Yoga Alliance. She holds a group exercise certification and is also certified in Pilates, PiYo and the Silver Sneakers fitness program. Joy is the owner of Enjoy Yoga Studio.

Yoga is about changing habits, self-discovery and love, all with child like curiosity.
Terra Nicolle – Hamilton, ON
Christa Norgren – Vancouver, BC
Greetings! My name is Christa Norgren and I reside in beautiful British Columbia right on the coast in Vancouver. I found yoga in 2004 and began my teacher training soon after in 2005 with YogaFit. I still continue to grow in my own learning through Mind Body Education with YogaFit Canada. Currently, I hold certifications in group fitness, weight training and yoga with British Columbia Recreation and Parks Association (BCRPA). I have been teaching YogaFit style classes in the YMCA of Greater Vancouver, the Richmond Olympic Oval and other fitness clubs.
I also have certifications in Fusion Fitness (pilates, yoga and fitness) and Level 1 Athlete’s Performance Training. I aspire to have athletes of various levels and sports include yoga in their training to reduce chance of injury, promote recovery should an injury occur and ultimately, enhance performance. I also work with children who require extra support in the school system in a neighbouring city, Burnaby. The Burnaby school system has newly been exposed to the “MindUp” Curriculum. The school where I am, the curriculum is used by all the teachers. It has a strong emphasis on awareness of self, both physically and emotionally and uses simple yoga techniques within the curriculum like breathing and mind/body connection. I have been able to bridge this peace of the “MindUp” Curriculum with yoga and I am excited to teach to both the children and my colleagues.
At my core, I believe health and wellness is the key to a long and happy life and I believe that begins from the inside out. Yoga has supported me to live that way more and more.

Elle a obtenu sa certification comme entraîneure privée et est aujourd’hui PRO FORMATRICE pour le programme de Spécialiste en entraînement personnel de canfitpro.
C’est en 2000 que le yoga est arrivé dans sa vie et ce fut pour elle une révélation, un tournant. Elle a rapidement su qu’elle voulait devenir professeure de cette belle discipline et c’est ce que qu’elle a fait. Après avoir été entre autre PRO FORMATRICE pour le programme MBS (Mind Body Fitness Specialist) de canfitpro, Marianne a fait une première formation avec YogaFit en décembre 2011 et ce fut le coup de foudre! Elle a démontré son intérêt pour devenir formatrice pour la compagnie et a ainsi entrepris un magnifique voyage et un riche cheminement.
Marianne est co-propriétaire du Studio Santé l’énergie! à Repentigny qui offre des classes de yoga des plus variées ainsi que des cours de mise en forme spécialisée et de l’entraînement privé. Elle enseigne plusieurs classes par semaine, offre des séances d’entraînement privées en plus de présenter régulièrement des formations pour YogaFit et canfitpro.
« Le yoga est pour moi un véritable trésor qui est avec moi, en moi, où que je sois. Le yoga me donne l’opportunité de ralentir et de reprendre contact avec l’essentiel. Il m’apporte la paix, le calme et un bien-être profond. Mon souhait est que ces sentiments soient vécus par le plus de gens possible à travers la pratique du yoga. »
