Tyla Arnason - Certified Yoga Instructor

Certified Yoga Instructor

I would like to personally welcome you to THE YOGA EFFECT, my yoga business and passion. 

Finding a well-qualified yoga instructor in a time when yoga has become very trendy and popular, can be a daunting task. The credibility and positive effects of yoga have thankfully prompted students to expect more from their teachers.  Please take a few moments and allow me to share my yoga journey with you.

Long before I found yoga, I was a competitive gymnast in my hometown of Winnipeg, MB.  I moved to Calgary in 1999 and added running and hiking to my list of pursuits.  The day of my first 10km race I was in a car accident that caused significant injury.

Soon after, I found yoga as a means to alleviate chronic pain and migraines.  Yoga helped relieve the pain and, more importantly, allowed me to manage my own rehabilitation without the use of medications and invasive techniques.  I came to love the effect that yoga had in bringing my body from a place of dysfunction back into balance.  The good news is that yoga has not only helped renew my body, mind and spirit, but has created a place in my life for a healthier me.  My practice complements my life in so many ways, but, equally important, it promotes wellness which makes me a better wife and mother.

I have practiced yoga since 1999.  However, a more committed journey began in 2004, followed by the commencement of my first Teacher Training Program in 2005.  I have been passionately teaching yoga since 2006 after resigning from a successful corporate career.

For me, yoga is more than just something I do to keep in shape, it is a state of being.  It is a way of living my life with balance, gratitude and peace.  Yoga has never felt like an obligation for me because I allow it to fit into my life and not the other way around.  Outside of yoga, I love spending time with my family, reading, golfing, cooking, hiking and photography.  I’m dedicated to helping people improve their wellbeing and live a better quality of life.  I invite you to come share a yoga practice with me and feel for yourself the difference yoga can make.
