We hold space for your

body

Welcome to our Yoga site!

Kukoon Yoga is a small and passionate yoga venture located in Port Moody, British Columbia. From basic yoga positions to intermediate and advanced classes, our approach is to welcome and accommodate all levels of practice.

We ‘heart’ all things yoga, specializing in Prenatal Yoga, Kids/Family Yoga, Power Yoga, Hatha Yoga and customized yoga classes for athletes. We strive to create a safe environment for people to connect, or re-connect, with themselves and with each other. It’s our mission to help you achieve your goals, whether that’s deepening your understanding of the Third Eye or simply being able to tie your shoelaces once again.

The Wikipedia definition of cocoon is, “to envelop or surround in a protective or comforting way”. How beautiful and relevant that meaning is to yoga. Our creative play on the word, changing it to ‘Kukoon’, makes this meaning our own. This is the true benefit of yoga—you can adapt and play with the practice until it is totally and wholeheartedly your own!

  • I have 3 beautiful boys and Prenatal Yoga has been an essential component of my birthing process for each one. Salina’s classes offered movements to free my body of its ailments and positions to use at home with my husband to ease back pain. It was a special time where I could tune into my baby, away from distraction. I felt prepared and confident that my body could handle the labour process with the knowledge I gained in these classes.

  • Chris and I have been attending Salina’s yoga classes for almost two years now and they are a highlight of our week. Sometimes we have challenging days and have to ‘drag’ ourselves to Yoga but after class we feel fantastic: relaxed, happy, and our bodies feel ‘balanced’. My husband had some real movement limitations at the start; but now he’s so much more flexible than he’s been in over 20 years.

     Chris and Kris Bovay, Coquitlam

  • This was my first time taking a Prenatal Yoga class, and I was nervous during the first class, but the way Salina instructs was very accommodating and relaxing. I was comfortable and relaxed in the classes. The specialized maternity yoga movements helped me a lot in minimizing my back pain.

“WAIT…DON’T PUSH YET!”

Our third baby arrived fast and furious! After labouring all night, at 5:30 AM I couldn't stay in bed any longer. I had to get up and start moving with each rush. My husband grabbed the camera to capture the birth! VIEW VIDEO HERE Luv,

Prevent & Restore…What is Diastasis Recti?

OMG, what is wrong with my belly?". That's what I thought when I first saw a ridge form down my tummy in my first trimester, pregnant with my first babe. I wanted to investigate further and was surprised that more people weren't talking about this very important topic! I had to share! Check out this video to see what I learned about Diastasis Recti.   VIEW VIDEO HERE     *This video is for informational purposes only.

Post-Natal vs. Babe & Me Yoga. What’s the difference?

I am often asked what the difference is between Post-Natal Yoga and Babe & Me Yoga. The truth is, they are very different in style, intent and mood. To better grasp these differences, I interviewed one of our amazing yoga teachers, Jessica Blissett, who specializes in these classes.   Me: What's the main difference between Post-Natal Yoga and Babe & Me Yoga? Jessica: Both of these classes are unique for different reasons. In Babe & Me Yoga, we focus on connecting with baby through movement, music and play. The practice can be quite challenging, but I wouldn’t compare it to

Hello, I’m Salina.

I am a wife, mother, doula, yoga teacher and lover of all things sweet!

I am passionate about making connections…uniting the mind, the body and the breath. Yoga stole my heart and we are now beyond ‘the point of no return’. Yoga is therapy, it is gratitude, love, family, and connection.

I’ve been practicing yoga for over a decade and, after the birth of my daughter, decided to pursue my passion for teaching it. I received my 200 hours Yoga Teacher Training certification in September 2012 and completed my 80 hours Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training while pregnant with my son in 2013. Most recently, I received my Rainbow Kids Yoga Training certificate in hopes of bringing yoga to the kiddos in my life in a fun and interactive way.

My personal journey practicing yoga, through studying and teaching, has led me to develop specialized yoga programs for kids, families, athletes, birthday parties, and yoga for pregnant women. As a yoga teacher, I am committed to teaching you how to practice yoga in a way that connects you to your body, mind and spirit. My classes always provide a safe and fun environment to experiment, play with movement and challenge yourself.

I greatly enjoy getting to know my students, who range from two to 80 years old! I look forward to meeting you one day soon.

Love always,
