Meet Our Fabulous Teachers
Radiant Health Yoga is truly blessed to have so many fabulous and passionate teachers, each certified in their respective field(s), each unique in what they share with you in their classes. Enjoy variety, humour, camaraderie, and sometimes just plain silliness.

All teachers have First Aid CPR training. CYT means Certified Yoga Teacher. CYPT means Certified Prenatal Yoga Teacher. E means experienced. 200 means 200 hour basic training. 500 means an additional 300 hours of training.
Private or Semi Private Sessions:
With your very individual needs in mind, we offer you a yoga experience to enjoy on your own or to share with someone special. We can also design a yoga program exclusively based upon your requirements. It is ideal for those new to yoga and for those looking to deepen their practice and get one-on-one guidance.

“Having practiced yoga for over 7 years, some of the benefits of this practice seeped into my being slowly over the time and other benefits were apparent almost immediately. As I draw closer to my retirement day from nursing and pondering what to do, it was clear that I wished to help others as I have been helped.”

“Being drawn to alternative health and wellness from a young age, I’ve dabbled in many different hobbies and modalities to help heal and grow through life’s experiences. Yoga was one that always stood out. My goal as a yoga teacher is to provide a class for you that is a sacred place to be. To hold space and enable you to tap into your authentic self to be the best version of yourself.”
Christy Cook, CYT 200
Certifications: Certified Yoga teacher 200; with Deva Tree School of Yoga, Trios College: Physiotherapist Assistant, Fanshawe College: Fitness & Health Promotion
“As a long time health enthusiast I tried yoga after the birth of my first son, and enjoyed it as much as running. It wasn’t until after the birth of my second son that I truly appreciated the impact on my mental health. As a mom of two you busy boys, and working full-time outside of the home; finding the balance and time for myself became so much more important. I attended Deva Tree wanting to grow my personal practice and realized how much I wanted to share the gift of yoga with you.”

“I always knew I wanted to get into a profession that would help other individuals in some aspect of their lives. When the opportunity arose to become a yoga teacher, it felt as though everything was falling into place. As a mother of three children, with two being home births, it was only natural for me to become a certified Prenatal yoga teacher. Soon afterward, I was drawn to receive training as a Labour Doula and Bellies Inc. certified; which completely changing my focus toward pelvic health in my teaching. I am honoured to be a part of the lives of so many people. Namaste.”

Bailey Urso, CYT 200
Certifications: Himalaya Yoga Valley Center: 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training, November 2012
“I spend most of my days hunched over a computer desk, so I have dedicated my evenings to moving in any way that I can! I believe you should never stop learning or challenging yourself, but you should also never take yourself too seriously. A healthy lifestyle should be fun – smile, laugh, and enjoy the process. Yoga has taught me how to love the life I lead and to enjoy all aspects of my body, my mind and my emotions, both on and off the mat. I teach because I want to share this experience with others in any way that I can.”
Sharon McClorry, CYT 200
