Your Teachers

Uriel MacGillivary E-RYT 500 Hour, Reiki Master

Uriel is a yoga teacher, an entrepreneur, and a leader of transformational Yoga teacher trainings and retreats across the Globe.  She is the founder of Shanti Yoga Studios and the Shanti Traditional School of Yoga based in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Having held senior management and marketing roles in Corporate Canada for twenty years she answered the call to become a yoga teacher.  A life-changing journey to India to study the ancient teachings would transform her life. Overnight she walked away from everything that she knew and started a phase in her life that would take her on the adventure of a lifetime.

Stepping into her true purpose she recognized that students longed for the same deep transformation in their lives.  Her studios and teaching philosophy are guided by the values of the time-honored wisdom teachings of the yoga tradition.

Led by masters such as the late Georg Feurerstein, of the Traditional School of Yoga and world-renowned yoga and meditation teacher Rod Stryker she is a student for life. Having studied Tantra, Vinyasa Krama, and Iyengar yoga, she brings a multi-disciplinary approach to her teaching.

My vision is clear she says:  “I believe in the power of yoga to transform lives and inspire students to awaken their soul’s calling”.

Taylor MacGillivary (E-RYT 500)

Taylor’s curiosity of Yoga practice came quickly after doing his first Teacher Training in 2011. He  feels a close connection with the traditional practices of Yoga, practicing and teaching with Sri. T. Krishnamacharya’s lineage as his guide. Taylor approaches Yoga practice as medicine for your body and your mind. Staying true to Yoga’s origins while keeping practice light and accessible is what he strives for in his teaching. Taylor draws on 1000 + hours of study, ranging from contemporary Canadian teacher Ryan Leier, who has served as Taylor’s main influence, to his latest study with traditional Indian master Srivatsa Ramaswami, a 30+ year student of Krishnamacharya, the man responsible for Yoga’s expansion into the world as we know it today.

Since 2014, Taylor has been co-leading Shanti’s 200 hour teacher training and leading retreats around the Globe.  He  has an immense passion for Yoga philosophy, the contemporary nature of Yoga, and a never ending curiosity in body mechanics.

Kyla MacKinnon (E-RYT 500)

Kyla is inspired by the act of leading others and empowering them to live their truth. She believes in the power of connecting breath and movement with those around her. Throughout her life, she has enjoyed coaching people and creating a space where they feel comfortable and confident in order to reach their full potential. From her 800 hours of training, she vows to keep the tradition of Krishnamacharya’s yoga lineage alive thanks to one of her great teachers, Ryan Leier.

Kyla will incorporate a balance of strength and serenity into her teachings during the program.  Her compassionate nature makes her a perfect fit as the YTT student liaison. She gives herself fully to new trainees who need guidance and support during the training.
