Padma Yoga at Pinnacle

Makaela Paynter RYT200

Makaela has been practicing yoga on and off for nearly ten years, but really began diving into its philosophy within the last three. Growing up, she struggled with both her mental and physical health; then as she went through a time of personal growth and change, she found peace on the mat. In wanting to expand her practice, Makaela became a RYT 200 in June of 2021. She is excited to continue to learn and share her love of yoga through teaching. She offers Hatha, Vinyasa and Strong classes as well as private/corporate yoga. Her favourite class to teach is early morning to start the day on the mat, preparing for whatever is ahead. Makaela would like to further her training to be able to offer yin yoga in the future. 

Kimberlee Shaver RYT 200

Kimberlee began her yoga journey 10 years ago. After completing her Bachelor of Arts at the UofA and falling into a period of uncertainty, Kimberlee found solace on the mat and took a deep dive into yoga and meditation, becoming an RYT-200 in June 2021. Kimberlee offers Hatha and Vinyasa classes and is hoping to eventually take trainings in Pre-Natal and Restorative yoga. She is currently working towards becoming a Certified Meditation teacher.
