Brandi has been teaching yoga in Medicine Hat and surrounding area since 2012. Her intuitive teaching style allows students to find connection, acceptance, and stillness within their practice.

I came to yoga 6 years ago and fell madly in love immediately. The way I can feel so grateful and yet powerful during my practice is captivating. In a beautiful moment of surrender I realized that yoga was the piece of my heart that had been missing my whole life. So when the opportunity arose to take my YTT from Brandi Stuber I jumped at the opportunity to immerse myself in my practice and learn how to share it with others. I completed my 200 hr training December 2017.
As a mom of 4 I see daily the benefits of a strong practice, not only in my parenting but in my children as well. I believe truly that yoga is the greatest gift I can give them. It is my hope that I can teach from my heart and experiences to build a community of support for parents and introduce yoga to littles. I am so very excited for this opportunity to share my love of yoga with our community.
I initially got drawn to the mat as a way of managing stress and found the opportunity to become truly present in both my mind and body. I've been practicing yoga for 5 years now, but deepening it more the past 2 years. After playing years of college volleyball, I found my new passion, leading me to get my teacher training where I will study at SATTVA School of Yoga in Edmonton. I am a true believer that yoga can bring you clarity, confidence and calmness into our daily lives.
RENÉE GAUDREAULT, RYT-200
During a surf retreat in Hawaii in 2006, Renée was introduced to the lineage of yoga and fell head over heels. She cultivated her love of yoga by going through her Teacher Training in Edmonton at her beloved studio, Yoga Within. Delving deeper in her practice, she completed her 200 HR YTT with Melanie Checknita in 2015 in the tradition of Hatha. Renée's philosophy in teaching is to promote proper alignment, teach from the heart to safely, effectively and respectfully guide you into embracing the benefits of creating the union of breath, mind and body balance while finding your own path in the journey of yoga.
JANE GRANT, RYT-500
Fifteen years ago, Jane looked to yoga as a way to cope with anxiety and panic attacks. Yoga helped her experience a state of relaxation and calm that she had difficulty achieving at that time. As her practice evolved she was drawn to know more about the philosophies of yoga and to share what she learned with others. In 2015 she completed a 200 hour YTT at The Yoga Studio College of Canada in Calgary, Alberta. She continued her training with a 300 hour YTT at the Inspired Yoga Institute in Calgary, Alberta and completed it in 2016. Presently, Jane’s yoga practice deepens as she continues to explore and experience the many branches of yoga. Her teaching reflects her experience that the power of yoga lies in everybody’s ability to be present and open to experiences on the yoga mat. What we learn on our yoga mats are the foundations for living fully in our daily lives.
tiffany braun, RYT-200
5 years ago her yoga journey began and somewhere along the lines it got lost, only to be found again at the end of August 2017 when her heart was awakened again to the study and practice of the 200 hour yoga teacher training.
She has learned the importance of honouring her body, and listening to what it needs from spending years sitting at a desk, running, and doing crossfit. Tiffany's teaching shares her love of yoga, and her knowledge of injury rehabilitation to provide slower paced classes with appropriate modifications. She believes that modifications don't make a pose any less challenging, it's just a story we tell ourselves.
Erin Schwab, RYT-200
Hi I'm Erin. I grew up in Medicine Hat playing sports, mostly soccer and ringette. At the recommendation of one of my athletic therapists, I started going to yoga classes and I loved it from the get go. I tried different styles of yoga at different studios in Medicine Hat and Calgary, where I lived for 8 years before moving back spring 2017.
When I started my yoga teacher training at Kindred Yoga with Brandi, I wanted to develop a better foundation for myself. The more I learned, the more I wanted to share what I was learning with others. I plan on continuing to learn and build on my foundation while helping others as well.
As much as I appreciate all styles of yoga, I teach from my self practice which involves bringing heat and getting a nice work out in.
JENNifer perree, RYT-200
What I love about Yoga is the community it creates with other like minded people. What I love about ashtanga is the mind, body & breath connection the Ashtanga Vinyasa Method creates. It builds my inner fire & burns off fatigue, it de-compress my hips and back, it focuses my mind and it gets rid of negative thoughts, feelings, anxiety and fears. This freedom, focus and strength is the gift I want to share with everyone.
I am always learning, I have a teacher, and I do try to practice daily. I am learning from my leading, I think this is really important for teachers to teach from personal experience and share that with their students. I attend classes in Calgary and Edmonton whenever I am there. I’ve also attended several workshops with Kino MacGregor, Dena Kingsberg, Nancy Gildoff, Jeff & Harmony Lechty, and David Garrigues, these are just a few great Ashtanga Yogis. I became a certified ashtanga teacher with ‘It’s Yoga’ 200hr YTT in January 2012, and am off to study under Matthew Sweenie in Costa Rica November 2018 & 2019
