Helen Mikuska, SOYA, E-RYT500, Ayurvedic Teacher
Helen brings over 40 years of experience in the fitness industry to her students, with a background in Pilates, Ayurveda and Food Nutrition Management. Her yoga journey began through the SOYA training with Mugs McConnell and Dariel Vogel, with whom she completed her 500 hour yoga teacher training in 2004. Her passion lies in the rich traditions of the path, which inspire her classical approach to her Hatha yoga offerings. A devotee of Bhakti yoga, Helen delights in kirtan and mantra, having studied mantra with her late guru Namadeva Acharya.
Helen has studied extensively the ancient teachings of Wholistic and Ayurvedic Yoga through Dr. David Frawley. Other teachers on Helen’s path have included Aadil Palkhivala, Brad Waites, Gina Hager, Jennifer Weinert, Leslie Kaminoff, Dharma Mittra, Nischala Joy Devi and Susi Hately.

Rebecca Stone is an E-RYT 200, RYT500
Rebecca graduated from SOYA’s program in 2010. The blessing of this curriculum, and learning with Mugs instilled a great love, respect and thirst for the authentic teachings of yoga. She is also a certified Children’s and Family Yoga teacher that loves to bring yoga to life through play and relationship building.
Creating yoga classes that are accessible, informative, and transformational for all ages and abilities is her passion. With the blessing of having a mother who was a physiotherapist for over 40 years, the opportunity to mentor under that wisdom has deeply influenced her understanding and presentation of the blending of yoga asana, functional movement principles and the mind/body/spirit connection.
Becky began by teaching classes in the community and local gyms, as well as small groups out of her home. Becky opened a yoga studio in 2012 – the first in her small community – and ran it successfully for nearly 5 years. Now she is working out of her home studio in Strathmore, Alberta, offering private and group yoga sessions and workshops as well as the SOYA 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training. Connecting live online through Zoom is a new addition to her offerings.
She continues her ongoing education by being a voracious reader and question-asker, participating in varying workshops and retreats with world-class educators, and once again mentoring and studying under the wonderful Mugs McConnell.
