Instructor: Tia Makela

Tia Makela combines her love of anatomy with her passion for encouraging others towards finding their best selves into each of her yoga classes. Throughout both her university degree and yoga teacher trainings, Tia was fascinated by the anatomy and physiology of the body and the physical and mental components of yoga. In 2019, Tia graduated from her Honours Bachelor of Kinesiology from Lakehead University, where she devoted her thesis to studying the relationship between yoga and hip flexor mobility. She has also completed her 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training through YogaFit and is currently working towards obtaining an additional 100-Hour YogaFit for Athletes Teacher Training. Through her yoga classes at Bodymind Center, Tia hopes to create a welcoming environment that encourages purposeful movement and inspires self-discovery.
