Welcome to our team!

Our mission here is to improve the quality of life of every person that walks through the door, whether through community connection, better mobility and movement, new friendships, injury rehab and prevention or helping to improve lifestyle factors.

TEJOVRA
MOBILITY + BWS
@tejovra

TJ’s obsession with learning brings forth a progressively adaptive method of teaching.

Integrating the technicality of human movement to explore the creative abilities of each of his valued students. Protecting, inverting, lifting, flowing, and deep thinking are just some of the expected side effects of this experience.

TJ leads our bodyweight strength program at Workshop and also works with students one-on-one. He also coaches the fun and creative Workshop Kids program.

BEC POLLOCK-JONES
YOGA
@becpj

Physical Movement and dance has always been present in Becs’ life. On a day off if she isn’t dancing around the house you can find her tearing up the dance floor at her favourite Latin/hip-hop venues. Yoga entered Becs’ life in 2009 and she fell in love with the strength based practices involving inversions and arm balances. Bec completed her first Teacher Training with ‘Power and Posture’ and then her second at the ‘Krishna Village, Centre for Yogic Studies’, where she had the opportunity to fully immerse herself into the lifestyle and philosophies.

Join Bec on the mat for a fun, and forever evolving practice and super chill Savasana, aimed to bring awareness to the body, mind and spirit, through mindful movement and practices to help support our often busy, everyday lifestyle.

Come and say hi!
