Jilaine first started her yoga journey in 2001 and hasn't looked back since. After her very first hot yoga experience she was hooked. She says, "The way that yoga challenged me both physically and mentally was what kept me coming back."
Jilaine started working for lululemon athletica on 4 th St. and became inspired by the culture where she was encouraged to make and achieve goals and create reality from dreams.
During her time with lululemon Jilaine completed her first Teacher Training at Calgary Hot Yoga, and since then has completed level 1 and 2 with Baron Baptiste in Mexico.
What inspires Jilaine the most about yoga
is how much we can learn about ourselves through practice, and how we can then take the things we learn to improve our lives. She feels that there is much more to yoga than physical involvement; yoga encourages a strong mental awareness and allows us to be present in this moment.
Jilaine currently teachs full time at Hot Yoga on 17 th and Crowfoot where she is reminded everyday of the power yoga has to make make a difference in our lives. "I am so lucky to be able to do what I love everyday and be surrounding by amazing students, teachers and communities."
