Yoga on the Beach, Nicaragua by Don Halina CC-BY-NC-ND

I am an educator with a passion for movement, nutrition, travel and friendship.  Mobility, stability, coordination and balance blended together with joy and passion for life is what drives my fitness training style.

I am a fitness enthusiast who has had the pleasure working with a diverse and enthusiastic group of people at Saimavik Yoga Studio in Iqaluit, Nunavut since the studios’ opening.   I privately taught Tabata classes and provided personal training to a diverse group of clients.  Prior to that, I enjoyed work as a Physical Education Teacher and coach for two years at the American Embassy School in New Delhi, India.  I completed a Master’s Degree from SUNY, during my final year in Delhi.

I am a Certified Yoga Teacher and completed my training in Ottawa, ON, Canada at Mountain Goat Yoga center.  I enjoyed completing the Twist Sports Performance Coach Level 1 certification and the Twist Fundamental Movement course.  I worked as an Elite Trainer and Group Fitness Instructor at Goodlife Fitness in Ottawa for 2 years.  In Yellowknife, NT, Canada, I was employed as a Group Fitness Instructor at The Racquet Club, was the President of the North West Territories Ski Division, and coached volleyball while educating full time as a Science Teacher at Ecole Sir John Franklin High School.  I am a former Team Manitoba Waterpolo player. While working as a Physical Education teacher in Delhi, India, I coached Cross Country Running and taught Yoga at the Canadian High Commission. While in Iqaluit, I coached with the Iqaluit Tundra Tumblers as the sports performance leader.

Liz Diving T&C by Don Halina CC-BY-NC-ND

I enjoy distance running (the half marathon is my favourite distance), yoga,  resistance training and playing tennis.  Really, anything that involves movement is on my “must do or try” list!  I love travel that includes activities like scuba diving, hiking, and enjoying new flavourful, spicy foods.
