Rameen began his practice of yoga at a very young age with Meditation. His practice of meditation eventually led to Hatha yoga and then to Ashtanga Yoga. In 2002 he was authorized to teach by Sri. K. Pattabhi Jois of Mysore, India. Rameen has a holistic approach to teaching yoga with a strong focus on meditation & yoga philosophy.
The Sattva practice evolved from years of meditation, studies in India and personal practice. Sattva is a state of being, an inspiration & is the state of balanaced mind, so the individual can experience the authentic self. With his commitment and love for meditation & yoga he is dedicated to teaching people how to connect to the authentic experience of the self and the process of realizing their full potential.

Back by popular demand after her sell-out workshops in the past few years, Julie has agreed to offer an asana-based workshop in Calgary.
Julie’s previous Calgary workshops have focused on formal anatomy instruction. This workshop will emphasize core issues for the focus group of postures, followed by deep asana practice to enhance understanding and embodiment of the yoga teachings.
Julie was anatomy columnist for the Yoga Journal for eight years and now writes for Yoga International.
For many years Julie has worked to integrate the healing powers of yoga with her Western medical knowledge.
She has created a unique teaching style and teaches workshops, including "Anatomy Awareness in Asana" and "Yoga for Physical Therapists," throughout the U.S., Canada and in Europe. You can also see more of her work in the Yoga Journal online.
