About

At Reflexions Studio we take a very simple approach to our teaching and our business. In keeping with the ancient philosophical roots of Yoga, we do our best to take care of our clients, our co-workers and our community. We operate on the faith that if we are a wholesome and compassionate member our community, letting love and attention be our guides, we find purpose and are able to sustain our place in the world for the long term.

We are grateful for everything the the world has provided to us and hope to share what we have and what we know with those who seek it out.

Peace and Love from the whole Reflexions Crew.

Remember to share what you have (smiles, attention, time)!

See you at the Studio!

Our Team

Rose

 

Rose Finer and her husband Craig have owned and operated Reflexions Studio since 2011.  Having grown up in Edmonton and spent many years in the US, they decided it was time to move back to Canada on a leap of faith that Penticton would be a good place to raise their boys.  Living a busy, active lifestyle of windsurfing and skiing, yoga has often been a welcome way to slow down and take care of both mind and body.  Having many years of entrepreneurial experience they decided that Reflexions Studio would be a perfect way to allow passion and work to come together into one space.  Rose spends time in the studio teaching, behind the front desk and taking care of her family at home and at the studio.

Tracy

 

Tracy has been a teacher at Reflexions since 2018. Her desire to challenge herself with new experiences has lead her through a variety of different trainings and to find a deep passion for teaching. Tracy currentyly teaches Yoga Hot Flow classes as well as Core Fusion and Classical Mat Pilates group classes. She teaches private Classical Pilates sessions in our two treatment rooms at the studio, where you can learn from her on a variety of different equipment and props to deepen your both Pilates and Yoga practice. Tracy also has a passion for Restorative Aerial which you will find on our schedule as a Mini Retreat! Through her years of learning and practice, she has developed a style of teaching that merges both her love of Yoga and Pilates together.

Alea

 


Alea grew up in the B.C. Lower Mainland and moved to Penticton in 1992 to raise her daughter in the beautiful Okanagan. Always active since a very young age, she was a highland dancer for many years growing up and choreographed some of her own dances for competition. Alea is a lover of everything outdoors! Running, hiking, skiing, camping … anything that gets her out to soak up Mother Nature’s bounty. An active person, always up for a new adventure and keen on continuous learning, Alea decided to try out a yoga class. It was love at first practice! In addition to the benefits of the physical practice, Alea was pleasantly surprised by the improved emotional well-being and mindfulness that comes along with the practice. Alea had long considered taking the 200hr yoga teacher training and after 10 years working on her personal practice finally worked up the courage to just do it and signed up for the Reflexions Studio teacher training program for the 2019/2020 year.  Not knowing exactly  where this would take her, having graduated, she has now found her yogi tribe at Reflexions Studio and is enjoying every minute of getting to know the Reflexions yoga community.

Kelly

 

Kelly has always enjoyed an active life.  She and her husband both grew up in the area, and have spent countless hours exploring the outdoors of the South Okanagan and Similkameen with their four children.  She swam competitively growing up, and taught fitness classes as a young adult, but never tried yoga, thinking that it “wasn’t for me.”  Well into middle age, with the encouragement of a good friend, she decided to give yoga a try, and immediately felt a very strong connection.  Yoga quickly became a daily practice, helping her to feel grounded in a way she hadn’t experienced before.  She also found that it provided much relief from the aches and pains of an aging body through increased strength and flexibility.  Wanting to learn more and go deeper into her practice, Kelly completed the Reflexions 200-hour teacher training in 2020, and is thrilled and very grateful to have become part of the Reflexions crew.

Katie

 

Katie has been practicing yoga for over 20 years now and has enjoyed teaching for 10 years of that time. Her first training was 250hr Holistic Hatha training in Vancouver and over the years of teaching her style has evolved to reflect her tranquility and creativity. Vinyasa and Hatha are currently her favourite styles to teach, especially with the addition of heat! ⁠

Heather

 

Heather was introduced to Yoga as a child and took to it immediately. After many years as a student, Heather became a 200-hour certified teacher through Ashtanga Yoga Montreal in 2011. She went on to teach students of all ages and abilities.

After moving to the West Coast, she taught multiple varieties of hot/infrared Yoga in Vancouver and Victoria, from Vinyasa Power Flow to Candlelight Yin.

Heather is in the process of obtaining her 500-hour certification through My Vinyasa Yoga. She looks forward to sharing her love of Yoga Asana with the Reflexions community.

Retail

B Yoga

With mindfulness and movement, anything is possible.

B Yoga’s elevated yoga and fitness essentials are made for all the ways you work out and go within. We’re here to empower every body to find inner calm and build outer strength.

Innovative and high-performance, the B Yoga collection stands up to even the most intense modes of movement. Take the B MAT: Grippy, durable, and sustainable, it’s made from a high-tech material originally created for carpet pads. (Shout out to founder Andrea Morris, without whom we’d still be slipping during sweaty power flows).

Plus, each item is designed to get high marks for comfort and style. These are practice tools you won’t want to hide in a closet after class.



Half Moon

In 1983, Halfmoon founder Beth McTavish was walking by the Ganges River in Varanasi, India, when she saw a group of yogis practicing at the water’s edge. She was mesmerized by their intent, their focus, and the stillness of yoga in the midst of noise, chaos, and colour.

When she returned home, still captivated, she began to practice Iyengar yoga.

Six years later, Beth—a talented creative and, by now, a devoted yogi—began making her own props. A red seat belt became a yoga strap. Rolls of cotton batting turned into sturdy bolsters.

And just like that, Halfmoon was born.

Our intention today is the same as it was over 30 years ago: To create beautifully designed yoga and meditation goods that hold and comfort you on your mindfulness journey.

The Halfmoon collection is crafted just outside of Vancouver, BC, and thoughtfully designed for a variety of practices. The wisdom of our experience and the energy of the West Coast are woven into everything we create. Even more importantly, our respect for traditional yogic values—namely truth, compassion, community, and kindness—guides us on our path.

Whether you’re new to yoga and meditation or looking to take an advanced practice to the next level, our mats, cushions, and props are lovingly made to meet you exactly where you are.

We welcome you to the Halfmoon family. May you, too, find roots in mindfulness so you can rise.
