Our teachers

our 200 hour faculty is one that we are proud of.

At MYNAH, we care deeply about who the teachers are that will guide you on your 200 hour foray into the deeper parts of yoga. Your 200 hour teachers are some of the best leaders and teachers in Calgary. Kate, Stef and Jilaine have each been teaching full-time for 10 years in Calgary. Each of them influenced by different teachers and approaching the practice in their own unique way. These three friends not only work well together but compliment each other in a way that brings a rounded yoga teacher training.





Stef Rizvi // co-lead

She is a one of a kind kinda teacher who ignites and awakens every student whether she is teaching her candlelit yin, hip hop yoga class or a fun class in unconventional spaces like a night club, along the river or on a roof. An E-RYT 200 yoga teacher she is so happy and honoured to be sharing what she has learned in her path with all those onboard for Mynah 200.



Jilaine Beddoe // co-lead

This right here, is a master of so many. A mother of two, a pillar of support and love for community, Junction 9 co-owner and a teacher extraordinaire. Jilaine has her 500 hour certification and E-RYT 200 and has been teaching for nearly a decade. She skillfully and lovingly invites teachers to explore the deeper parts of self and reveals to each student their inherent beauty, wisdom and strength. She is honoured to be a part of Mynah 200 with you.



Kate W. Mak // co-lead

For Kate, teaching yoga is one of her greatest joys and honour. An E-RYT 500 yoga teacher, she has had the wonderful and greatest opportunities to sit at the feet of many great and respected teachers and ready to share what all those teachings have meant to her and her path. She is so excited to take flight with both Stef and Jilaine in this chapter with the Mynah 200 Class of 2020.
