Kyla started yoga thinking it would be a great addition to her exercise routine. She quickly realized that yoga was so much more and fell in love with all of it the first time on the mat. It became something that she looked forward to going to and it wasn’t long before research started on teacher trainings. 2016 was the year Kyla went to Thailand to take her 200 hour YTT and fell even more in love with what Yoga offered. Before the trip was over she signed up for the deep dive 300 hour YTT the following year. Adding to the 500 hours, Kyla has her Yin level 1 and 2, Kids Yoga, Aerial Yoga, Mindfulness Meditation, sound healing level 1 and 2 and is currently taking her masters in sound healing. She also has courses in Breathwork and trauma informed coaching.
In January of 2021 Kyla moved from Lethbridge to the Crowsnest Pass and was searching for a place to practice and instruct. With no studios available, she was motivated to create a safe space for teaching and practice and Hearts Peak Collective was born.
“Yoga has done so much more than bring me flexibility and strength. It has taught me patience, self love, mindfulness, how to cope with all that life has to offer and has greatly increased my compassion for all beings. It has brought me a huge sense of safety and has become a way of life, not just a thing I do.”

To Victoria, it's all about finding connection. While her love for being on the mat didn’t happen instantaneously, it has grown to be the place she turns to to deepen her understanding of how moving with mindfulness, compassion and intention can be practiced off the mat.
Her playful approach to teaching creates a lighthearted atmosphere for students to explore their own bodies while keeping intuition and breath at the forefront of their practice. She loves to find new ways to flow through her practice just as much as she loves to settle into a deep posture and let the breath fully take over the body. Her biggest mission is to give her students room to explore new depths of themselves and leave the class with a sense of wholeness.
Victoria’s professional background is in the garden and the forest- which you can often find aspects of sprinkled throughout her class.
A serious cycling accident over 20 years ago and a
more recent, debilitating shoulder injury left her first-
hand experience of how pain interferes with all
aspects of life. These struggles have
sparked Wanita's strong desire to help
those who suffer from injury, tension, and limitations.
As an active yoga and fitness instructor, Wanita has
been able to help people regain a strong quality of
life. With daily use of Self Myofascial Release
techniques and purposeful movement Wanita has
overcome her chronic pain. Wanita's passion for
teaching people how to open, let go and find
reprieve comes from an anatomy-based focus and a
few laughs with a touch of sass.
I have been in the fitness industry for over 30 years. I have taught and trained clients throughout Alberta and British Columbia since 1998. I began as a Step Aerobics instructor and branched out into various fitness specialties as my experience evolved. I love to challenge myself, both mentally and physically and found my true love and passion; sharing health and wellness with others.
I believe that fitness and mindfulness are the key to a healthy, long life. Our bodies are meant to be in motion no matter what age we are. I offer fitness and wellness sessions for all ages; 9 through 80 years old. I am constantly learning new teaching methods and sharing them with as many people as can. There is always an opportunity to add wellness and exercise into your life; whether it be simple movement patterns and gentle stretching/yoga or intense strength and cardio training. Proper guidance is always the key. CFES National Personal Trainer, WYA Aerial Yoga/Restorative Yin Instructor and Yoga Instructor, Pilates Instructor, Kettlebell Instructor and Certified Chef. As an avid weight lifter myself, I have realized that mobility and flexibility training are vital to a healthy, balanced lifestyle. Stretching allows our bodies to move more freely without stiffness or pain. My yoga journey has truly opened up my mind, increased my flexibility and allowed me to create a huge mind-body connection that is beyond words.
I first started doing yoga in my early twenties hoping it would help with all the injuries I was getting from running a lot! I quickly realized how much I needed all the other benefits one reaps from yoga such as learning to be still and lowering stress and anxiety levels. I started with a weekend teacher training in 2006 but quickly realized this wasn’t enough! I then went on to do several 200hr teacher trainings over the next few years; India, the Baja in Mexico and Las Vegas
Each training was very different and taught me different things about myself and what the practice of yoga can do. My practice has really ebbed and flowed over the years with my life but has always been where I know I need to go when things get challenging. My goal is to provide a safe space for others to find their own light, strength and reconnection with self in a busy world. I love that teaching yoga allows me to constantly slow down, take a deep breath and be in each moment
