Becca Pati (Owner, RMT, E-RYT500, AWC):
I have been doing what I love for a very long time. It’s actually the longest relationship I’ve had – with my students and clients! lol In 2002, I became a Registered Massage Therapist working with 30 people a week, at a chiro clinic, helping heal a variety of injuries and ailments. It became clear to me, that my passion was for a therapeutic style of massage which encouraged clients to recover from sports injuries, repetitive strains, arthritis, general stress, aches and pains. I opened Divine Health Studio in September of 2006. Since then I have added a variety of yoga classes to my Studio; including meditation. In 2009 I went back to school for a year (while working full time) and became certified as an Ayurvedic Wellness Counselor (balancing nutrition and lifestyle).
For the last several years, I have been helping St. Albert, Edmonton and international students with their pain, stress, nutrition, diet, and lifestyle changes. Your overall health is very important to me. We need to focus on our health daily, not once our bodies start to deteriorate. In my experience with myself as well as with clients, I have seen that without massage the muscles remain tight and do not recover as quickly from injury and workouts. As well, without yoga our bodies turn soft, less flexible and without meditation our minds start to run rampant over-thinking and over-analyzing. Come visit us today and let us help you create more balance in your day. Find me at www.beccapatiyoga.com

Jess (Registered Massage Therapist and Yoga Teacher):
The thing I love the most about being a massage therapist is that it’s an endless journey of learning. The human body is such an amazing and interesting form; it’s constantly changing and adapting to whatever life is throwing at us. It’s so fulfilling to be able make a difference in someone’s life, whether it’s helping someone de-stress from a hectic lifestyle, or finding relief from pain that they have been experiencing for years. Being a Yoga instructor and bringing that knowledge into my massage room allows for healing in different ways. Combining the hands on approach of massage with the stretching and strengthening aspect of yoga helps build a wonderful balance in the body. I believe in constant maintenance, rather than just fixing something when it’s injured. Learning to prevent injury from occurring by bringing an overall awareness to the body at all times is so important. Whether its releasing built up muscle tension, realigning injured tissue, working to restore any muscular imbalances, I hope to be able to help you feel better no matter what the condition may be. I attended school at M H Vicars, I have been practicing massage for a couple years, and teaching yoga since 2010. Yoga, crossfit, snowboarding, rock climbing are a few of the things that keep me sane, and I’m always willing to try anything active. Music, Traveling and expanding my mind is what feeds my soul, and I’m constantly striving to live more on the right side of my mind.
Tracy (Yoga Teacher and Registered Massage Therapist): Tracy has always been drawn to the Health and Wellness industry, but the profound shift for her began when taking Yoga Teacher Training in 2010. This was the catalyst that steered her toward a path of holistic healing for herself, as well as the desire to help others in this same process. Wanting to know more about yoga, meditation, human anatomy and physiology, and energy work she began to learn how all of these systems are interconnected and deeply rooted within us.
Tracy believes that there is not one modality that can bring us into perfect health, but rather many that compliment each other and work together simultaneously to serve their unique purpose. She is very excited to have the opportunity to offer Massage and Cupping Therapy as an integrated piece of your own unique healing journey.
Tracy believes that in addition to providing therapy that is therapeutic and relaxing, it is also just as important for her as the Therapist to hold space for her clients during their sessions.
“The real purpose of giving massage is to foster more depth of feeling for one another in order to bring out the love that often lies buried beneath the pain of everyday suffering.”

JoAnne (Yoga Teacher):
My journey into wellness began with graduating in 1993 with a Bachelor of Physical Education in Fitness and Health Promotion. I worked in the in the fitness industry for many years as a fitness instructor (yes to the unitards and leg warmers), fitness centre manager (way before personal training was cool) and as a military fitness instructor (no one believes that one, but it’s true!) Needing to find a less physical job, I began to work as an Exercise Therapist at WCB and have been in the rehabilitation field for 15 years. I knew there had to be more out there than just the physical aspect of health. From the first moment I walked into a yoga studio, I knew I had found the missing link that connected the mind, body and spirit. I became a yoga teacher in 2009, and have made yoga a part of my life since then. The yoga path is such a journey, and I am deeply grateful for this opportunity to guide you, nudge you and perhaps even make you smile through the process.
