Rebecca Stiles

Rebecca Stiles, 200 CYT has been practicing yoga since 2006. After leaving her job as a Registered Dietitian in 2011 to spend more time with her two sons, she delved deeper into her yoga practice and eventually found Prairie Yoga and completed her 200 hour certification. Rebecca is now an assistant teacher in Prairie’s 200 hour yoga teacher training where she enjoys being able to support and mentor trainees on their journey to become yoga teachers. She believes the practice of yoga is first and foremost a lot of fun, and also provides the opportunity for self-discovery and self-acceptance. She is currently continuing her studies in Prairie's 500 hour program.

Marinda Stopforth

Marinda is a life-long student of yoga and has studied with Gabriel Halpern, Tias Little, Aadil Palkhivala, Kathleen Wright and is inspired by the teaching of Ramanand Patel. Her teaching style presents the wisdom of the "mind-heart-body" connection and offers students a deeper understanding of anatomy and alignment.

Marinda is a faculty member for Prairie Yoga's Advanced Teacher Training Program. As a CE provider through Yoga Alliance, Marinda enjoys teaching workshops on the topics of adjustments, sequencing and the use of yoga props, like the chair and the rope wall.
