Hi there! 

I’m Jodi, the proud owner of this wee establishment.  ‘Boss Lady!!’...Words I never thought I’d say!  But I say this with the greatest of gratitude!! My ‘yoga journey’, so to speak, has not been a long one, but it will lead me for the rest of my life. 

I started my journey In 2016, where I flew my butt to Jamaica and received my 200YTT. I returned home and immediately began teaching at the very studio I now own. 

2017 is when Two Feathers Yoga took form, and from there it’s been one hell of a ride!!  Together, as a community, we’ve made this space available to all, no discretion, no judgement, just a safe, positive space for all who are interested to join us!  

Along this journey of mine, I have already learned so much about myself, the good, the bad, & the ugly.  But gosh have I grown, in ways I never thought imaginable!! Let us help you find ‘You’!

Joelle Pilaprat

Her mission is to empower people through the practice of Yoga as they make the deep connection between breath and movement. Her intention is to focus on their inner and outer growth. She loves seeing how yoga can bring powerful shifts in someone’s life. To her, Yoga is meditation in movement : being present as one flows through asanas inhaling and exhaling.

She took her first Yoga class 11 years ago and fell in love. She realized that while paying close attention to her instructor’s cues, to her own breath and to her physical form, she was in the moment during the whole class. A most valuable experience of which she wanted more .  So she went back again and again , thus her journey began thanks to some amazing teachers. She honours and respects their love for Yoga . They most definitely inspired her and supported her to get her Yoga Teachers Training certificate in 2016. They were instrumental in finding the type of yoga she likes to teach at this time, always staying open to other possibilities.

She teaches a strong flow which includes downdogs , planks and cobras/updogs. Proper alignment is extremely important to her not only to avoid injuries but to express the pose in all its beauty. Each class is different in its sequence yet the same in its challenge and power.

She is warm and caring and has a strong French accent !She is there to guide you through your practice respecting that you are the one who knows best what your body needs.

The journey on my mat began in 2007 and I instantly fell in love with everything Yoga!  The health benefits of the practice both physical & emotional mirror each other in every way.  Yoga provides strength, stability, balance, focus, confidence & an overall wellbeing.  I chose to become an instructor & completed my 300hr YTT in spring 2013.  My goal is to simply provide a safe place to breathe, stretch, to create length & strength.  I lead my classes in a mindful way that will provide options to rest or, to challenge ourselves to take flight in fun arm balancing asana’ s.   Come join me in unwinding completely or, finding play time on our mats!  

My Mantra…”Breathe it all in…..love it all out”

Stephanie Rankine
Steph has been practicing yoga for over 20 years. After many years as a student, Stephanie pursued her teacher training and has completed her 200 hour Power Yoga training in Jiquilillo, Nicaragua and 25 hours of Restorative Yoga training.
Being well versed in many styles of yoga and meditation, Stephanie brings aliveness and grounding to each of her yoga classes and loves ‘going with the flow’ each time she teaches.
When she is not practicing yoga, Stephanie is a Senior Project Manager with PlaySafe Productions and has, in the recent years, spent most of her work time in remote, northern fly-in communities across Canada’s high arctic where she has been establishing a lifejacket and cold-water awareness education program for youth. She has partnered with various organizations throughout Northern Canada, who have helped her deliver and distribute well over 17,000 lifejackets to Canada’s youth that don’t have equal opportunity or access to this lifesaving device.
When not in the north, Stephanie likes road tripping in her van, VANna White, hiking the Adirondack Mountain Range with her dog Riley and travelling to warmer climates where she can experience new cultures, meet new people and have new experiences.
Unfortunately, COVID-19 has put a temporary halt on both her work in the north and her travel adventures. For the time being, she has been spending her time finding creative ways to get outside, stay active with Riley, create inspiration that opens new worlds of adventure for others and finally getting around to finishing her pilot’s licence!

I love teaching Yoga.  It is my passion.   I get goosebumps, and feel honoured and grateful to guide my students and to share the beauty of yoga each and every class.  The practice has been a part of my life for 35 years.  Through it all, grief, anxiety, injuries,  and the good stuff too!!  Once I realized how impactful and healing yoga was for me, I decided at some point in my life I needed to share it with others.   Well, that took awhile!!  I graduated from Citizen Yoga's teacher training in 2017 and haven't looked back.  I'm so excited to join Two Feathers and simply share the beauty of Yoga.  We will breathe, soften, strengthen and BE. I can't wait to  hold space for you.
