Emily Robertson

Emily Robertson

Pilates Teacher

As a young girl, I was always drawn to ways the body can move to express art. I grew up dancing at a competitive level, studying tap, jazz, ballet, modern and lyrical. My passion evolved and in 2010 I began teaching both recreational and completive dancers. Looking for ways to strengthen my dancer’s and improve their technique, I attended the Niagara College Fitness and Health Promotions program and graduated in 2017. With my passion for movement, I decided to continue my education through obtaining my STOTT Pilates.

Sydney Dick

Sydney Dick

Pilates Teacher

I began practicing Pilates in 2005, and quickly found it to be an excellent compliment to my already active lifestyle. Pilates soon made me stronger, more flexible, and less prone to injury. It also improved my running and weightlifting, and was helpful while completing a diploma in Outdoor Adventure from Algonquin College. Pilates creates an awareness of how your body moves that allows you to take on all of life’s activities with confidence, whether it’s a week-long backpacking trip, carrying luggage through an airport, or playing with your children at the park.

Pilates Teacher, Older Adult Specialist

Teaching is my passion and my love of fitness transformed into the vehicle to help people improve their health and wellness. Having taught for over 20 years, I have become fascinated and truly inspired by the small increments in progress that I see clients making, one cell of their body at a time. Breaking down each movement to meet each client’s needs allows me to see the look of accomplishment in their eyes and the smiles on their faces as we progress to each new level. Fun and fitness go hand in hand. I strive to include activation of the laughing muscles as a key to success.

Rebecca Swick

Rebecca Swick

Yoga Teacher

My journey with yoga began at a young age. Originally it was the physical poses that brought me to my mat, but I soon felt the gentle shifts yoga could create in my life off my mat. My practice has challenged me to focus on the present moment, grow stronger, calmer, and more self-aware and become in tune with the connection between the body, the brain, and the mind. I am passionate about living holistically. I use my background as an Occupational Therapist with the soulful, spiritual, and mindful aspects of yoga to encourage others to feel happy and healthy in their lives.

Karen Gemmel

Karen Gemmel

Yoga Teacher

I began practicing yoga in January of 1996. In the fall of 2003, I completed, with Honor of Distinction, an intensive 500-hour teacher training program at the Yoga Centre of Burlington, a recognized Yoga Alliance training facility. I continue to deepen my knowledge of the practice by attending workshops and classes led by senior teachers. I practice and teach a traditional style of yoga which utilizes props for modification to make poses accessible to students of all ages and abilities. Yoga props are used to support the body in restorative poses, and assist you to move into a posture you may not yet be flexible enough to manage on your own.
