Yoga Teacher

Maddie Hibbard

Maddie Hibbard R.Ac is a registered acupuncture practitioner who combines an Eastern approach with the fundamentals of holistic nutrition and lifestyle counselling to provide thorough, individualized, and comprehensive care to people in her community. Wearing many hats as a practitioner, she weaves together distinct acupuncture styles, Chinese medicine modalities, holistic skincare, and Western herbal medicine to bring about positive change in those who seek her guidance. 

 

Her areas of focus include: 

 

Women's Health: hormonal imbalance, menstrual irregularities, fertility and pre/post-natal support. 

Pain management and resolution: arthritis, tendonitis, fibromyalgia and rehabilitation from acute/chronic injury. 

Skin health: inflammatory skin conditions like eczema, rosacea, psoriasis or breakouts. 

Digestive concerns: food intolerance, gut dysbiosis and irritable/inflammatory bowel conditions. 

Nervous system support: anxiety, depression, sleep disorders and stress management. 

 

However, her practice is not limited to these aspects alone. She has experience in treating most health conditions, including complex issues. 

Prior to discovering acupuncture, Maddie earned a Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Studies with a focus in Ethnobotany from the University of Victoria. Drawing on cultural knowledge about the relationships between people and medicinal plants, this field of study offered her an initial introduction to the ethos of Chinese medicine; one that resonated deeply with her own understanding of health.

Maddie was ultimately drawn to a path that would allow her to work with plants and people in a hands-on way and engage with traditional healing practices, and thus began tacking the huge expanse of knowledge that is Chinese medicine. She graduated from a 3-year program in Acupuncture at Pacific Rim College, one of the foremost institutions for holistic medicine in the country.

An interest in wellness rituals from around the world inspired travels to South America, Asia, and Africa where Maddie uncovered new perspectives on health to bring to her practice. She gained postgraduate specialization in some interesting niches of Eastern medicine, including Five-element acupuncture and Shi liao nutrition, while earning certification in orthopedic acupuncture and Western herbal medicine.

In practice, Maddie takes a patient-centered approach, believing that the role of the practitioner is to act as a guide and facilitate healing that comes from within. She is deeply humbled by the opportunity to help others on their journey to greater health, clarity, and joy.

Registered Massage Therapist

Rebekah Senko

Practicing yoga since 2010, Rebekah is now Moksha (now called Modo) trained and has been practicing Moksha/Modo for five years.

After a hard year in 2013, she wanted 2014 to be a year for regaining health and balance. She joined the energy exchange program at Moksha Yoga Milton as a stepping stone to rebalancing her mental, emotional and physical health. She loved the community aspect being part of the studio offered and when she dedicated time to practicing it encouraged her to slow down, be calm and feel grounded.

In every class, Rebekah designates time at the beginning and the end for students to ground themselves in savasana. These are moments for us to slow down and let go of our busy lives. Whatever your intention or goal is, Rebekah hopes to guide you into an encouraging practice to achieve it.

Moksha Teacher

Muguette Laflamme

The journey of becoming a yoga instructor is INFECTIOUS.

I started by taking one class to test the waters that led to the next
class, and another....
One day, the instructor approached me and said “would you like to teach this”? She saw something in me. She planted the seed of curiosity. With a sense of wonder and intrigue, I decided to take the leap, go out for training, get a better understanding of what yoga was all about.

That was in February of 2006, little did I know that my journey was just beginning. After several trainings I was hooked. My personal yoga practice, tutelage and I were having a serious relationship.
I pride myself for teaching from a place of respect & compassion. Making yoga accessible for anyone in
any body to enjoy. From Chair Yoga, to Seniors Yoga to Special Olympic kids Yoga, Hatha, Yin, Aerial Yoga, Stick Yoga... With every modality that I’ve trained and taught over the years, I quickly learned that my students have always been my greatest educators. I am grateful.
I love having participants leave my class feeling relaxed, calmed energized and with a smile on their face.
My goals are to promote Mind & Body Awareness, Empower participants to find balance & a sense of ownership over their own health.

Registered Massage Therapist

Iantha D. Greer, C. CHt.

I began learning Meditation when I was 9 years old. I started with very simple techniques and gradually challenged myself to learn new skills. Meditation especially helped me through high school, university, and difficult life situations. When things are going well, Meditation helps enhance my life. When things are not going well, Meditation helps me cope with challenges. I have now been teaching Meditation for over 9 years, and I am still grateful for and fascinated by the benefits. 

 

When I was 22 I began studying Hypnosis. What I found was that Hypnosis built on the Meditation techniques I had been practising for over 10 years. I became a Master Hypnotist and earned a diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy from The Pacific Institute for Advanced Hypnotherapy (PIAH) in Vancouver, BC. For over 5 years I have used Hypnosis to help individuals harness the power of their own mind, and regularly find new training opportunities to increase the range of hypnotic sessions I am able to offer. 

 

Both Meditation and Hypnosis are incredibly versatile, and similar. I describe Meditation as 'Mild Hypnosis' because the brain responds similarly to a meditative or hypnotic state. I leave the decision to each of my clients about whether they wish to begin with Meditation or jump straight into Hypnosis. During the Consultation Session, I learn what the potential client is comfortable with (Guided Meditations or Hypnotherapy) and create personalised sessions tailored to their desired outcome. If a goal is not already listed under my services, I encourage anyone to call or email me to inquire - there are too many uses for Meditation and/or Hypnosis to list and I may be able to create a new session! 

 

My aim is to help people take control of their own lives. Some of my sessions include: 

 

Recovery from Crisis or Trauma

Relief from Anxiety and/or Depression

Building Confidence and Stability

Finding Motivation

Weight Loss/Gain

Fitness Improvement

Smoking Cessation

New Year's Resolutions - ongoing support through the year

Past Life Regression

Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist

Sheila MacLean

Massage and yoga have been powerful methods for growth and connection in my life, I very sincerely love what I do, and would love the opportunity to share it with you.

 

Massage has been a great passion of mine since I stumbled into the practice headfirst in 2009. I knew it checked the boxes: Something in to encourage and bolster others, that kept me moving, and that let me be creative.

Sharing yoga was the puzzle piece missing to invite strength, stability, and therefore longevity, to those I was seeing in my massage practice. My yoga classes, private and public, are not the fancy, twisty postures you might see in magazines, but a method self-inquiry and thoughtful movement aimed at awakening individuals to their own possibilities.

 

In massage I offer:

Swedish, Deep Tissue, Indian Head Massage, Joint Release, Deep Flow, Shiatsu, Thai, Reflexology, Hot Stone, Hydrotherapy, Prenatal Massage, and the use of Aromatherapy.

 

In yoga: Hatha, Stråla, Movement Therapy, Restorative, Anusara, Acroyoga.
