This yoga teacher training had a strong focus on Hatha and Kundalini yoga, meditation, and the eight limbs of yoga. She embraces the  “yoga for every BODY” movement. Her classes, while maintaining accessibility, will incorporate stretch and strengthening, alignment, connecting the breath to movement, and mindfulness. You will leave her classes with a feeling of inner peace, and a better sense of self-awareness.


RYT 200 hours

Beginner Flow Yoga Instructor

Andrea Bell

I have been studying yoga for over ten years and recently completed my RYT 200 with Lisa Craig at Inner Dawn Yoga. My focus is a gentler practice, one that respects the unique needs of each person. I love to learn, share new ideas and information with my students so no two classes are ever the same.  Yoga for me is not just about the postures, but the history, philosophy and the wisdom of yoga as well.  Yoga for me is not about twisty bodies, crazy backbends or inversions; I see yoga as being accessible for everyone.  Yoga is about the beautiful journey that unfolds every time you come to your mat.

Kate Wagar

Hey Everyone


Kate here to share a bit of my story. Fitness was never a regular part of my lifestyle.  I would go through spurts of healthier eating or get into a fitness regime, but drop it at the slightest distraction—oh look pizza 🤤


September 2016 my world flipped upside down as I split from my husband ending our 12 year relationship. 


The last two and a half years have been a rebirth. Figuring out who I am and evolving into the woman I want to be. Step one: I had to stop giving up on me. How do we even tolerate this as acceptable?!? 🤯 


I am so grateful to have 5 year old daughter who keeps me on my toes and has made me realize there is so much more to life than just coasting through the days. She’s the inspiration for setting little goals and big dreams. Seriously do this because goals = growth. I’ll be damned if I’m going to miss out on living my best life ever again.


“Finding” Circle Studio...geeze! 🤦🏼‍♀️ B and I went to high school together and I live in this town, how was I so unaware of the greatness that is this space?! From September 29 2018 - present I have knocked out 188 classes (mindbody tracks it).  I got hooked.  In mid-November I told Brigitte and anyone else who would hold me accountable that in 2019 I would certify in at least two classes.  February 3, I certified to instruct Strong. Me. I did it. This week I’m learning all the specifics of instructing Surfset workouts. Who is this chick?! I love that this is me. 


The Circle tribe is a fierce force. Its all the feelings I crave. The inspiration is limitless and the energy is contagious. Sometimes it  seems surreal but I also feel more me, than I’ve felt in eons. Thank you, so incredibly much for being part of my journey. 🤗

Hi, my name is Lisa and I am an educational assistant as well as I support adults with disabilities within the Lambton County community. Growing up, I played many sports and once graduating high school, college became my first priority and my sports got pushed to the side. I found Circle Studios late 2016 and I have fallen in love with many of the classes since. Mid 2017 I was introduced to Barre and fell in love. March of 2018 I became a certified instructor and will be teaching Total Barre at Circle Studios.

Sharon Humby

Hello All, 

My name is Sharon Humby, and I am super excited to join the Circle Studio team of amazing instructors. I have been a Certified SPINNING Instructor for the past 10+ years teaching at various gyms around the area. I recently moved to Marthaville and when the opportunity to instruct at Circle Studio presented itself, it felt like a perfect fit for me.  

I have found SPINNING to be an amazing tool to help me deal with the stresses of life.  From spinning I branched out and became a Certified Personal Trainer and shared my joy of not only spinning but strength training and over health with my clients, friends and well pretty much anyone who will listen. 

I am very excited to meet all of the awesome clients of Circle Studio and share my passion with all of you.
