Karen Waite E-RYT500
Karen is an Experienced Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga Teacher and Personal Trainer who’s passion for helping others achieve their goals shines through in her commitment to engaging her students and fellow yoga teachers. Karen’s teachings are about the whole health experience: body, mind and spirit. She is passionate about developing classes and programs that challenge students at all levels and provide positive outlets for stress relief. In continual gratitude to her Guru Kavita Maharaj, Karen is teaching the Red Door Yoga 200 & 500 Hour Teacher Training Programs. She is also an Alumni Ambassador for Lululemon Coquitlam and was a presenter at Wanderlust Whistler Yoga Conference 2014.
Adrianna Pugsley RYT200
Thanks to her mother, Adrianna began her yoga journey in the womb. Fast-forward to post-high school when her mother dragged her to another yoga class. That was the beginning of her lifelong desire to teach yoga, now fulfilled with her completion of the RDY200 Hour Teacher Training. Adrianna teaches a mix of Hatha and Flow yoga with some power moves thrown in for good measure. She is looking forward to starting the next leg of her journey as a teacher and sharing her positivity, her knowledge of yoga and her zest for life, inspiring students on their paths to enlightenment.
Rishan Knox RYT200
Although her desire to teach has only just surfaced, Rishan has been practicing yoga for over 13 years. She recently completed her 200-hour yoga teacher training with world-renowned yogi, Eoin Finn. Rishan enjoys incorporating her love of music and her own unique fun style with that of many teachers she has been lucky enough to experience, including an instrumental influence from Karen Waite. Along with continuing her training, she is planning yoga retreats to combine her love of yoga and travel!
