Mat to Page Writing & Yoga workshop with Nicole Starker Campbell

Join Nicole for an exploration of how yoga can help unlock creativity and expression through breath, body and mind.

 A yoga practice can be very helpful in moving energy through our bodies, clearing our minds and helping us gain the focus needed to move thoughts from the mind to the page. Using the chakras as our guide, we will work on gently opening our bodies and minds through specific physical poses, breath, and a relaxing guided yoga nidra meditation.

 Be prepared to do some yoga, a couple of writing exercises, and of course, have fun!

 This workshop is open to all creative souls, whether you have a yoga practice or have never set foot on a yoga mat.

In addition to teaching yoga, Nicole is a published writer and you can view samples of her work at

10:00am - 12:00pm


Healing Breath Therapy is a healing system based on the natural intelligence of the body. This therapy utilizes the power of the breath to heal and balance the mind and body combining techniques of yogic breathing and shamanic breathing. The breath is the most powerful source of life force energy (prana) which can heal the body, open blockages, reveal patterns or addictions, assist in the releasing of past trauma or abuse and accelerate spiritual growth.


This workshop is contraindicated for those that are pregnant or have high blood pressure unless they speak with Erik Hanzen first.

To me yoga is not something I do, it's how I live; it's not something I teach but rather what I share.

From my very first class in the fall of 2010 I knew there was something special about it, I often say "It spoke to me like nothing before".  After a lifetime of competitive sports pounding heavy weights in the gym and hard living including 16+ yrs of football up to and including CFL, training camps and practice rosters injuries were taking a great toll on not only my physical body but mental state as well with 3 major knee reconstructions, multiple concussions and spinal fusion I had no idea what was to come of this new journey of peace and softness.

Like most athletes my yoga practice was mostly physical in power flows, hot yoga and Ashtanga but so much more was unfolding around me a calm and quietness that I had never experienced before I was changing and my way of seeing life was shifting..... for the better.  After a year of solid daily practice being encouraged to embrace the change with love one of my teachers  said to me "you have a gift and need to share it, you will build bridges between communities that have never been connected before", although I had no idea what he meant at the time. I embarked on something that was to shape my future in the most amazing way ever. I completed my first TT with Empowered  Yoga receiving  certification in Rocket Ashtanga, Power and traditional Hatha in2012 now wanting to share even more  teaching became a natural fit continuing to grow and educate myself adding Yin certification in the summer of 2013 all while recovering from spinal fusion surgery and working  towards my RYT 500 w/Empowered Yoga.

Yoga and Football are two passions that allow me to give back to the community that supports me, after 30+ yrs. of playing, coaching and managing at many different levels from minor football to the CFL and having worked in business operations with the Edmonton Eskimos I feel the connection between these two communities instructing yoga to the Eskimos, UofA Golden bears,  Jr football clubs, hockey schools and other various sports building bridges along with being a Glow Juice &  Lululemon Ambassador growing yoga, inspiring positive living and nutrition creating mind body awareness.

Famous for creating the Lahari favourite "Yinyasa", students also love sweating it out with Alexandra Perras at her Powerflow classes and waking up early for some warrior flow. Alex will be taking her mat to the people of Australia when she embarks on a new journey down under in June. We will miss her sunny style and laughter at the studio and wish her much love and all the best in this new chapter!
