Stephanie True, Yoga & Pilates Instructor

GAMA Pilates & Yoga Center

*200 Hr RYT Registered Yoga Teacher

*Inferno Hot Pilates

Stephanie True has been practicing yoga for over a decade. She initially fell in love with the feeling that you get at the end of a yoga class. No matter how good she felt going into class, she felt even better afterward. Not only did she realize that  yoga was transforming her body but also her mind and spirt. With this realization she excitedly signed up to become a yoga teacher in 2012 and graduated with a certificate as a 200 hour registered yoga teacher in 2013. Since then, she has continued to practice and teach and acquire new knowledge along this long road of discovery. Recently she also added to her training a course in Inferno Hot Pilates. Stephanie teaches both Yoga and Pilates at the Gama Pilates & Yoga Center and has been a part of the team since the beginning of 2019. Stephanie lives in Alliston with her husband Kevin and dog Archie and is looking forward to welcoming a new baby in 2020.

Paige Burnie, Yoga Instructor

GAMA Pilates & Yoga Center

*200 Hr RYT Registered Yoga Teacher

Paige Burnie began practicing yoga as a new year resolution. Initially wanting to start exercising, be active and lose weight, she soon realized practicing yoga was going to change a whole lot more than the number on the scale. Her yoga practice became a journey of self-love, self-expression, and celebration. Her love of her practice developed into a passion for leading others and inspiring people to fall in love with the process of becoming the best versions of themselves. Yoga has weaved itself nicely into Paige's passion for the outdoors, travel, animals, and food! Paige has taught at Gama Pilates & Yoga Center since August 2018.
