Your Yoga Instructors

Rachel Rogers, BA Sc., RYT, CMT

Owner/Founder and Instructor of Alchemy Yoga & Wellness Studio 

Rachel is a Certified Therapeutic Yoga Instructor who has studied Hatha Yoga for over 20 years. Also Certified in Mindfulness Meditation, Rachel teaches that which she herself practices on a daily basis.....overcoming the obstacles of the mind and emotions. With an Undergraduate Combined Major in Psychology and Women’s Studies, Rachel has found her own niche of combining Eastern and Western Philosophies and practices. Her classes are as spiritual as they are physical.  


Rachel found that her love of yoga became her journey out of a long-time battle with anxiety and an eating disorder.  Yoga helped Rachel begin the process of healing.  On the mat she found that anxiety slowed and she could really feel her body and the moment she was in.  The swirling thoughts were replaced with peace.  This made Rachel reach out for more and more!  Now, Rachel is a leader in the community working with mental health and addictions and showing how the mindfulness of Yoga & Mediation can be used as a very effective tool for recovery.  Rachel teaches practical applications for slowing the mind and finding the path towards peace.  As a Momma of 4 growing children, Rachel knows the busyness of life and the need to be present.  Her love for her children and the forest ground her, while her love for people motivates her to show others their beauty within.


 

Jacquie Boychuk, Founder/Teacher of OM SHANTI YOGA 

Founder of OM SHANTI YOGA (beyond peace)

Also Certified in Restorative Yoga & Teaching yoga to seniors & Chair Yoga

Jacquie also took Thich Nhat Hanh's Mindfulness Training and was given the

Dharma Name: Peaceful Calling of the Heart


Having to overcome and endure many life challenges, yoga is what has allowed Jacquie to emerge whole and connected.  A life time struggle with Asthma was out of control. She was depressed and full of anxiety. Prescriptions medications were of no help.

In 2005, Jacquie participated in her first yoga class. Suffering from asthma, she was amazed after just 1 class, she could breathe and felt a calm she had never felt before !

She set up a daily practice every morning and eventually she was able to stop taking her medications.  In 2010 Jacquie began her Yoga Teacher Training Course.  She developed her signature OM SHANTI YOGA (beyond peace) to heal herself, mentally, emotionally, physically & spiritually. Jacquie has enjoyed sharing her spiritually nurturing OM SHANTI YOGA practice with others, ever since.  At age 51, Jacquie  offered her greatest yoga challenge yet when she suffered a stroke. Her connection to her body, honed through her yoga practice, assisted her in recognizing what was happening and guided her as she recovered. Below is a link to an article she wrote for the Yoga Blog.

Ashley Michelle, RYT Yoga Instructor

Ashley Michelle lived her life in the fast lane for over 20 years. From late night bartending to fronting lead vocals for bands, hosting karaoke and DJ’ing a diverse range of events; the pace never slowed. As vodka infused nights faded into one another, Ashley found herself growing tired of the crazy late-night lifestyle and craved a change.
Practicing yoga on and off for several years, Ashley wanted to deepen her meditation practice. In 2015 she enrolled herself in a 100-hour meditation course with the WillPower Institute. Six months of Monday to Friday attendance and she was off to Thailand to graduate. Along with thousands of others, she lived on Buddhist temple grounds and traversed a mountain, putting her new-found skills and willpower to the test.  Returning from Thailand Ashley wanted more than ever to learn everything she could about Yoga. Rachel Rogers, her first Yoga teacher, encouraged her to look into becoming a Yoga teacher; Ashley couldn’t get the thought out of her head.  After a few years of “waiting for the right time”, Ashley finally found the opportunity to enroll in the 200-hour Hatha Yoga Teacher Training program. In June of 2018 Ashley became something she never dreamed possible; A YOGA TEACHER!  “It’s taken a LOT of hard work and dedication to rise from my ‘late-night-rock-diva’ lifestyle. There comes a time in everyone’s life when you just need to grow. That lifestyle gets tiring, you know? I’ve quit smoking, I’ve chosen a 100 percent vegan lifestyle and drinks only come in moderation now, if at all. I believe we all just want to be the best version of ourselves and YOGA helps me with that.”  Now, taking on a different kind of stage - from her Yoga mat, Ashley would love to invite you to slow down, step into the NOW and take time for yourself. She adds a little bit of humor and reminds you that Yoga is for everyone! Ashley teaches from the heart and encourages a non-judgmental attitude towards yourself and others.
“I want to be the bridge that connects people to YOGA! I want to help you find peace, serenity and happiness in your own life. I want to share this amazing practice with you. So, whether you’re an advanced Yogi or a beginner, come join a class. All you need to bring is your open heart and your open mind NAMASTE!” 

 

Sonya Marie de Lazzer   |   RYT 200, Curator, PhD Candidate

Amidst a buzzing schedule, yoga is the constant in Sonya’s life. Her practice helps her find balance between a busy calendar, filled with program development and curating, teaching art history, and completing her PhD in Visual Studies, with a special focus on landscapes and environments. With a love for teaching, she recently decided to complete her Yoga Teacher Training, and is now a Registered Yoga Teacher.

Patterns of stress and anxiety were creeping into her life, with an agenda of late nights, early mornings, and what seemed like an endless stream of deadlines and commitments; little sleep and full days led to exhaustion. Finding yoga and breath-work offered her the opportunity to slow down and begin to cultivate a more mindful awareness around, and within her life. Today, Sonya enjoys offering the teachings of yoga, as she is so aware of how greatly it has positively impacted her life, in so very many ways, both on and off the mat.“Moving the body allows your body to tell its story, and it helps connect us more closely to our minds; some days we have a long story, other days a shorter story. Some days the story can be really difficult to tell, and sometimes it’s just natural. Whatever the story may be, I invite you to welcome it with you, onto your mat, to help cultivate a sense of harmony, peace, and balance within…” She also admits her love of forever being a student of the practice, and is so grateful for how much grace, nourishment, and wisdom all of her teachers have shared with her. Sonya lives in Niagara Falls with her family, her sweet cats, and her very busy beehives and enjoys spending much time outdoors. She so looks forward to being part of the wonderful and warm community present at Alchemy Yoga & Wellness Studio. Namaste!

Carrie Dungey

Indian Head Massage


From an early age, Carrie knew that nurturing hearts and souls was her life’s purpose. However, not knowing anything about holistic or complementary therapies or healing, she chose a practical and mainstream career as an Audiology Assistant. She began her career in 2000 at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, working with some of the sickest and most vulnerable children in the country. Her years there were both humbling and uplifting and broadened her perspective of how precious and magical life is while also bolstering her faith in the human spirit, as she saw how love can triumph in the face of the most intense sickness, and even death. In 2012, Carrie experienced first-hand what it was like to receive that same outpouring of love, by those who rallied around her and her two oldest daughters when her first husband died by suicide. The trajectory of Carrie’s life changed completely from that point, leading her on a quest for healing and meaning. Through the ensuing years, she has become an avid seeker of all things nourishing and nurturing. This has included poring through literature, practicing yoga, taking part in healing workshops, energy healing and ongoing support groups, starting her own meditation practice, learning about complementary healing modalities, and she is currently studying to become a Life Coach. Up and coming gifts will be studying reiki and becoming a postpartum doula in order to follow her heart’s dream of supporting mothers of newborns. In her seeking, Carrie has discovered the bliss of Indian Head Massage and is genuinely looking forward to gifting this wholly relaxing and nourishing healing modality to others. As a busy mama of 3, Carrie well understands that life can have its stresses and overwhelm and, because of this, she understands how vitally important it is to take time to slow down and allow yourself receive. You are worth it and you deserve it. Let Carrie nourish and nurture you, as she welcomes you with love and compassion and invites you to enjoy the deep healing of her hands and heart.
