We are happy to introduce you to our webpage makeover.
We thought, although the physical studio is not active, the yoga and thought collective behind it is.
Where the studio came from
Conceptions of LFY (Laughing Falcon Yoga and Wellness Center), in essence, began its formulation when Ian and Meaghan (owners) met in the muddy jungle pits of a music festival in Costa Rica; the unworldly merging with the worldly. It felt like a super bang, colliding of stars, where souls transformed from the mundane (relatively) to the wildly free. Crawling caterpillars metamorphosizing into soaring butterflies.
As journey-ers, adventurers, gypsies at heart, Ian and I cradled our studio into existence. With our hearts and energy filling the space, we were ready to share our experience with you. We filled the space with the 'life' we found in Costa Rica's glassy beach lines, ocean waters dancing with glowing phosphorescence, dazzling waterfalls...to Alaska's pebbly shores, majestic mountain ranges and ageless glaciers. (Why Alaska, that's Ian's homeland, and now ours, too!)
THEN A NEW CONCEPTION TOOK PLACE,
BABY #2 SHOWED UP. WE TOOK FLIGHT FROM ALGONQUIN PARK, ONTARIO TO HOMER, ALASKA. OUR SECOND (OR THIRD?) HOME.
I got to thinking, that although we don't have the studio running, just like the Falcon totem (where we got our slogan from), our family believes in
FREEDOM, MOVEMENT, AND SELF-DISCOVERY.
This is ongoing.
Join us as explorers, soul feeders, totems of the wild, and untap the surging existence that lies gurgling within us all.
As a family, we continue to journey. Our practice, yoga and meditation, ongoing growth as postive and healthy human beings, goes with us. So we thought Laughing Falcon Yoga could continue to grow with us as well.
Join us here for practice. Find videos, meditations, and literature (to do with the aforementioned, as well as general health, wellness, and family situations). Or, perhaps, like me, you get a thrill watching others travel, and you just want to tag along for our adventures. Whatever suits your interest, we invite you to tag along for the ride!
In your practice, let the spirit of the Falcon encourage you to play with Freedom, Movement and Self-Discovery, while always finding moments of Laughter!

Bachelor of Education
200 Hr YTT through Pavones Yoga Center
Kid's Yoga trained with Rainbow Kid's Yoga
Advanced Yin and Meditation
As an instructor, I like to think I'm just like you. I know joy, delight and revelation; but also am a sucker to worry, doubt and fears. The beauty in this is that I see the balance between both sides and it's often through these shared experiences in which we get to connect! In my practice and teaching I offer you space to rejoice, discover, challenge, embrace and relax with our shadow and our light! I hope we find friends, community and a safe space for play. Trained in the jungle studio of Pavones Yoga Center, Costa Rica, I hope the nature of my experience shines forth in my teaching. Let's find tranquility and solitude together.
~always with love~
Who am I?
15+ years experience in construction and contracting
Permaculture Design Certification
Lead Builder for Algonquin Pod Company
My history in construction has been with building traditional homes. In my 15 years of experience, my range of experience roams from building homes from the ground up, to more detailed renovations, to building small glamping units. As a man with a tendency towards perfectionism, I've started to realize that, although these homes are beautiful, a lot of the time they just don't seem practical. In terms of energy efficiency, or space efficiency, or layout, there are better resources to build with or ways to build. This realization led me to my training as a Permaculture Designer. My desire to build homes that will use the land and resources so that my family and the people I build for can live with a reduction of costs; imagine no mortgage payments, hydro bills, or electricity bills! If this sounds appealing, let's chat! I'll let you in on my secrets, and would love to start dreaming your new life with you!

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
Christina: fitness class client
Hurrah for yoga, dance, and fitness in our local community!
Keeping us happily moving in the dark hibernation season…
Anita: private party client
My daughter and her friends visited the studio in August as part of a 13th Birthday Party! All of the girls had a blast and kept talking about the great poses and activities that they had taken part in. When I arrived to pick them up they were not quite done, they were all laying relaxed, taking part in a visualization exercise. Thank you for the fun, and the memories.
Sonya: yoga client
I had the most wonderful time! The practice felt very theraputic. I feel completely different; I have much less tension in my body, peace in my mind and just a great feeling over all. I can't wait to come again!
