Founded in 2018 by Stacy Fleming and Logan Scheidt in the heart of the Rockies, Canada. The Living Yoga Institute was BORN!

We are two women who have been brought together synchronistically who finally choose to say yes! Yes to our biggest dreams, yes to our divine nature, yes to our fierceness and yes to some wild adventures ahead. We also said yes to looking at our deepest fears, to being

uncomfortably vulnerable, to be brutally honest and to always hold each other in the highest light.

As your facilitators, we commit to creating a safe and nourishing environment to inspire personal transformation and support you in your journey towards connecting to your true purpose.

E-RYT 500hr

Logan’s Yoga Journey started back in 2006 when she moved to Calgary to attend Post Secondary. Well it was love from first class! Logan knew yoga was a passion and decided to embark on her journey to becoming a Teacher. Logan graduated with her 200hr in Canada in 2013. She then went on to take her Advanced Yoga Teacher Training in India in 2016.  These teacher trainings included Ashtanga, Hatha, Kundalini, Power, Flow, Sivanada, Pre and Post Natal, Vinyasa and Yin Yoga.

Being a teacher is about so much more than just teaching to Logan. Being able to hold the space for someone to make a breakthrough and find freedom is ultimately why Logan continues on this career path.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Do I have need to have done Yoga in the past to participate in any programs or courses?
In short, the answer is no.

The great thing about yoga is that it can be done anytime, anywhere, with very few accessories. All you need is to wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothes. A non-slip yoga mat is also recommended.

More than anything, though, you will need to have patience and an open mind while participating in any Yoga course or class. With a little determination, you’ll feel the results in no time.

What if I am not flexible?
THIS ANSWER NEEDS TO BE CHANGED > ITS FROM ANOTHER SITE

I know it might be hard to believe due to our assumptions about yoga because of the few images we’ve glimpsed at (like that guy on that TV show “That’s Incredible” who tied himself up in a knot and stuffed his body into a box for the duration of the show). Yet, you know what happens when we assume. But yoga really has nothing to do with being flexible. Then why do all the poses seem designed to create flexibility? This is an important point! The poses really are not created to promote flexibility. They are created to heal or maintain the health and vitality of the places they expose. Yes, if you are carrying a lot of tension in an area a pose exposes, the tension will release, and your range of motion will increase. Yet, if there is no tension in the area, there is no need to release any, and the pose’s job is now to maintain its tension free status as well as create stimulation, which facilitates circulation which promotes oxygenation which is a prerequisite for regeneration as well as flushing out toxicity. Remember, the goal is to maintain vitality, not to create flexibility. After all, too much flexibility creates a state of instability and that’s not healthy. Just like we have different faces and personalities, we have different hips and different length hamstrings. We are not all supposed to get our head to our legs in forward bends. We all need to find our own place in each pose. That way the pose becomes ours. We are not supposed to look the same in every pose. The beauty of the human race is the differences among us all. It would be boring if everybody looked the same in every pose. Let’s flourish in our differences. Plus, I don’t believe there is any proof that looser people are healthier or happier, so what’s the point? Isn’t the goal Health and Happiness? So, no, you don’t need to be flexible. All you need is the time to breathe and move! Amen!

How often should I practice and how long should each practice be?
We shoot for daily practice. Try starting with a very short practice and work your way up from there, or try practice every day for as long as suits you. Even 12 minutes a day is scientifically proven to improve your health and physical wellness.
Should I be doing cardio with my Yoga Practice?
Keeping your body as healthy as possible is always our recommendation. If your body responds well to cardio, you feel better after you are done, then the answer is yes! A healthy body equals a healthy mind, which helps with a holistic approach to living a yoga lifestyle.
