Who We Are...
We are a dedicated team who are compassionate towards the invaluable tool of meditation and movement.
Our life experience through the Military, Medical and Animal Health communities has been our baseline for bringing meditation and movement into our lives. We have personally seen the many benefits that they both provide, specifically through its support of personal stress management and spiritual growth.
We are now able to bring this incredible life changing tool to our community of all ages and are excited to start helping others.
Don Ferguson CD
Certified Meditation Teacher
I became a Certified Meditation Teacher through Lifestyle Meditation. I studied under Mandy Trapp who is a Vedic Master & Founder of Lifestyle Meditation.
Meditation has been a part of my life since 2010 when I was looking for another option to manage my PTSD that didn't involve medication. On recommendation, I attended my first Vipassana Retreat and recognized the benefits to my personal well being immediately. Knowing what meditation has done for me, I now want to share my experience to help others.
Certified Meditation Teacher
Yoga Teacher & Movement Educator
I have obtained my Certified Meditation Teacher Training Levels 1 & 2 through Lifestyle Meditation under Mandy Trapp, a Vedic Master. My first yoga training was with East to West Coast Yoga & Pilates, and my second yoga teacher training through Heart & Bones Yoga.
I am a retired X-Ray and Ultrasound Technologist, who has worked in many facets of the industry. I've worked in a Trauma Centre, Penitentiaries, Private Clinics and alongside the Military, as a Public Servant. I have also worked as a Registered Professional Recruiter and a Client Care Specialist for VCA Canada Animal Clinics.
Looking back over the years, I struggled with depression on a regular basis but didn't understand it, nor wanted help for it. In 2007, my depression worsened, which led to insomnia and eventually debilitating migraines. All of these were due to a lack of self care from a combination of my professional and personal lifestyle. I was put on medication to alleviate the symptoms, however, I quickly learned that I struggled with the side effects of the medication and wanted another alternative. Through the teachings of meditation and yoga, I began to feel a shift, realizing my regular self care practice was helping me manage my mental and physical well being. It was another couple of years before I was able to come off all medication, however when the time came, I knew I was mentally and physically prepared to begin living my life to the fullest potential.
I believe in this life journey of sharing my experiences alongside my meditation and yoga practice in order to help others. I'm often asked why I teach, and my answer is simple..."because I believe that everyone deserves to find peace and balance in their life..."
