Tony Sidhu


Certified Yoga Instructor - Holistic BodyWorx - RTY200 Yoga Alliance

Certified Practitioner of Thai Massage - Still Light Centre - Toronto

Tony first stumbled across Yoga during his early working life when he found himself taking “Kundalini Yoga” classes as an outlet to the everyday stresses of work life.   During this time he realized that there was truly something transformational  about yoga, which always left him feeling internally balanced, strengthened and at peace, after participating in a class.   Many years later, he found himself establishing a weekly practise by participating in “yoga” classes at a local gym.  To deepen and expand his interest in Yoga, Tony decided to pursue the Yoga Teacher Training through Holistic Bodyworx.  Since then, he has been teaching at various studios in both heated and non-heated environments.  Throughout his classes, Tony strives to teach yoga with a specific focus on postural alignment, breathing and relaxation techniques that will allow participants to become stronger, more balanced and relaxed.  “For me, there is no greater investment in one’s physical, mental and spiritual health than through the practise of Yoga except being able to teach and guide others where I truly feel privileged and honoured to have the opportunity to do so.

Yvonne Di-Biase

Certified Yoga Instructor

Certified Pilates Instructor

Black Belt in Karate, CMAC

Black Belt in Kobudo, CMAC

Tai Chi Certification, CMAC

Yvonne lives Yoga and Pilates every day. She has cultivated a commitment both through her practice and meditation. She started out in the Martial Arts receiving black belts in Karate, Kobudo, and Tai Chi. Shortly after, she received her teacher’s certificate for teaching Yoga and Pilates.  She sees the body as energy and having explored the element of energetic flow understands the benefits of reenergizing our bodies.  As we create lines of energy through the body, we also create space through the joints and spine and as our bodies open, our minds begin to open.  She understands that balance comes from a calm and focused mind.

She teaches a hatha flow yoga class where the mind, body and breathe are connected, moving from one move to the next with mindfulness and breath.  She also teaches a vigorous Pilates class for a whole body workout .

"All of life is contained in this moment, in the space between thoughts, in the pause between breaths.” Stephen Shaw

Certified Pilates Instructor - Holistic BodyWorx

Sandra started coming to Holistic Bodyworks as a client.  After few years of trying different classes the studio had to offer she fell in love with Pilates practice and decided to get certified as a Pilates instructor.  Soon after signing up for the program she discovered I was pregnant with my third baby.  I continued with the program for the duration of my pregnancy and was presented with challenges and pleasures that woman's growing body can come across while doing Pilates. As she came to understand her body it got easier to use Pilates techniques and modifications she learned to overcome challenges and enjoy the full benefits of Pilates.  And that is what she hopes to teach her students, with proper execution and control, Pilates can help achieve wonderful sense of well being. she simply loves Pilates and wants to share and teach others to love it too.

Darryl Pui

Certified Yoga Instructor - Holistic BodyWorx - RTY200 Yoga Alliance

As a former collegiate athlete at the University of South Carolina Aiken, and former baseball player in the intercounty Baseball League, Darryl suffered several injuries throughout his athletic career.

Darryl turned to Yoga in an attempt to keep his body healthy. His journey started when he decided to take his first Yoga class at his local gym. Sitting in the back of the class, Yoga quickly found a way into his soul and it continues to grow to this present day. Darryl completed his Yoga teacher training certification at Holistic BodyWorx. In a life changing experience, he discovered that Yoga wasn't just about improved flexibility: It was about improving body, mind and spirit.

Through his many years of experiencing the every day grind of being a student athlete and corporate worker, Darryl's goal is to give back to his students by focusing on yogic techniques used to enhance both the athletic and corporate lifestyles.

Darryl's classes are focused on improving mind/body awareness, as well as building core strength and balance so that powerful and graceful movements can be performed.
 

Bree Osbourne

Certified Yoga Instructor


Bree came to yoga after numerous injuries put her on the sidelines of the sports she'd been playing her whole life. Almost immediately Bree discovered that the practice of yoga carries so many more benefits than just the physical ones. A calmer, more patient mind. The ability to breathe and to be. And just an overall sense of peace. After several years of personal practice Bree decided to deepen her knowledge with a teacher training in Hawaii. She is honoured to share her love and knowledge of yoga with her students
