Russel was introduced to the world of sport and exercise from a very young age. He grew up watching his father run marathons, triathlons’ and the Iron Man. From the age he could walk, he would always run the final few meters across the finish line with his dad.
Soccer has always been a huge part of Russel's life. He played competitively on the Vancouver JCC Junior Soccer Team, traveling across the continent. At 18, he traveled with the Junior Canadian Maccabi Team to play in the Maccabiah Games in Israel, where he was named captain of Team Canada.
Russel still plays soccer and has been training in Mixed Martial Arts and Krav Maga since 2008. He believes that your body is the best fitness tool you could ever have. Russel helps you create a goal and then focuses on the process to attain it. Specializing in fat loss and high intensity training, Russel designs the workout to be fun, challenging, and realistic.
Yasmin’s passion growing up was dance, performing and competing from the age of 4. When she was 17 years old, Yasmin took her first yoga class, and quickly fell in love with the practices.
Yasmin teaches a vinyasa style class, linking breath with movement and mindfully flowing from one posture to the next. Her classes are playful, yet challenging, as she encourages students to work to their own individual edge while finding ease in the practice.
Yasmin believes that everything in life, even the seemingly difficult stuff, is a blessing.She is inspired every day by stories she hears, people she meets, friends and family, complete strangers, music, dance, books, art, and this beautiful world we live in.
