Cassie Anderson

Cassie recently completed her 200-hour teacher training at oranj with the wonderful Nicki Doane in 2014, and she is thrilled to be on the team!  Yoga has been a part of her life since she was young, but as life became more stressful in adulthood, the importance of daily practice became not just a joy in her life, but a necessity.  She can't wait to share her passion and love of yoga with everyone around her.  She hopes to build many new relationships, while continuing to learn and grow with everyone at oranj!

Carla Playford

Carla Playford has been practicing and loving yoga since 2012. Carla received her 200-hour and 500-hour training in Costa Rica. She loves teaching flow and power classes to increase energy, strength, and flexibility in the mind and body. For as long as she can remember she has been interested in a mind over matter, natural healing, as well as creating a love everybody and everythingkind of world. Carla has always strived to find that perfect health and attitude that she would see in all of her books, but when she found yoga she learned that life isn't about being perfect all the time. Yoga taught Carla that its important to have balance and moderation in everything you do. She believes that there are good days and bad days; days where you feel strong and steady in your practice, and days you just need to lay in corpse pose for an hour.

Chelsea Ray

Chelsea had just finished her Psychology degree when she took her first yoga teacher training in 2012. Since then she has completed over  1500 hrs of yoga training specializing in yoga for pain, anxiety & health, kid’s yoga and meditation.  Chelsea has taught in drug and alcohol recovery centers, brain injury clinics, in studios and has also worked with athletes.  She has had a deep respect for this practice from the first time she stepped onto the mat, but when she suddenly lost her fiancé in August 2015 her yoga practice took on a far deeper role in her life.  Her teaching has become more convicted. Chelsea's  goal is to guide people on the mat in ways that extend far into their lives off the mat. From leading large community classes to private one-on-ones, make sure to spend time with Chelsea to get closer to yourself.

As she started to feel the transformation yoga had in her life, Helen felt inspired to share the gift of yoga with others. In 2013, she strapped on her backpack and travelled to Costa Rica where she studied closely with Angela Boltz (founder of Living Flow) and completed her 200HRYT with focus in Vinyasa. Helen is also certified in Barre with BARREast in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Helen believes the mind, body, soul connection is a sacred one, and one that should be nurtured and inspired! Helen brings a great sense of fun to each of her classes and she hopes to impart nuggets of wisdom along the way!
