Juliana Lavell, CYA-E-RYT500
Moksha Yoga/ Aerial Yoga / Joga Athletic Yoga / Restorative & Yin
From a young age Juliana was surrounded by Yoga and alternative practices from her Mother,
a fire walking Kundalini practitioner. Her connection to nature and the rhythms of the universe
lead her to pursue many passions such as studying Herbology with The Wild Rose College,
anthropology and Sociology with UBC. Her travels led her to many great teachers and shamans
including in depth study of Plant Medicine Iboga where she participated in Ceremony.
Juliana has co-directed numerous Yoga Retreats, both in Costa Rica & Canada, that included Traditional Sweat Lodge with an elder. Her teaching style can be described as graceful, awake and transformational. She is passionate about sharing the technology of Pranayama and believes in maintaining an accessible practice that is safe for the long term health of the body. She has a passion for writing (published with Elephant Journal), music (guitar and ukulele) and loves Bhakti Yoga.
She began her teaching journey in 2011 with Moksha Yoga International's 500 hour teacher training based on yoga-therapy and the maintenance of long term health of the joints. Since then she has completed an athletic program for Yoga called "Joga", working with students to enhance athletic performance. She has been a valued teacher to many golfers, hockey players and teams such as the Kelowna Rockets WHL.
Ongoing education has continued to nurture her offerings as a teacher, attending and offering various workshops in Yoga Nidra, Advanced Yoga and Yoga for Alcohol and Drug recovery. She has worked with elderly people using chair yoga, gentle yoga for students in recovery from addictions and private sessions assisting in rehabilitation from injury or surgery.
When Juliana discovered Aerial Yoga in 2012, it was love at first flight! She travelled to Boulder, CO to attend the Boulder Circus Training Institute where she completed her Aerial Yoga Teacher Training with Aircat Aerial Yoga. Her ongoing studies in Vinyasa Yoga, Meditation and extensive personal development inspired her to co-create Into the Mystic Yoga Teacher Training and Elevate Aerial Yoga Teacher Training.
Juliana is a momma bear to her 9 year old daughter Jada Bella. She loves plant medicine, vedic philosophy and will forever be a student of the universe. Taking time for journaling, nature escapes, painting, musical play and mantra.
Bianca d'Errico, CYA-E-RYT200 & Movement Specialist
Bianca's yoga journey was a bit round about. She was on a path to a corporate banking career
when she was in a car accident that tore ligaments in her neck and body, rendering her disabled.
After 6 years with no response to treatments, she was introduced to hot yoga. For the first time
in years, Bianca's injuries were not more painful after activity. It was victorious and emotional when
poses like downward dog became restorative. The asanas were healing her body and the effect
changed her mind and perspective - on life. Her eyes had opened to realize that sharing yoga was
her true calling.
Bianca took her teacher training through Frog Lotus International and later immersed herself into the world of athletic yoga through a renowned program called JOGA, becoming the Western Canadian Master Trainer for new Joga teachers.
"The entire yogic experience has revived my soul. Practicing is the most intense expression of inner peace, joy and freedom that I have
ever had. My hope is for all of my students to explore the possibilities that lie on their mats. I aspire to inspire them to discover new
heights by challenging their minds, connecting with their bodies, uniting breath with movement and most importantly experiencing peace
Bianca has shared her practice with students in Vancouver and the Okanagan area. Today, Bianca teaches clients ranging from professional athletes and teams to the disabled. She has created chronic pain workshops, developed regen and recovery programming for professional athletic organizations & coaches. Bianca also coaches and trains health specialists in the Joga system as well as developing personalized rehabilitation techniques and yoga exercises for clients. She is an avid supporter of organizations that cater to helping people with emotional, mental and physical limitations.

“I am so honoured and proud to be part of the inaugural Into the Mystic Yoga Teacher Training. I truly believe it is going to be a community of ongoing support, love and self-discovery as more and more people take the training.
This training takes you beyond the asana practice and the Eight Limbs creating a sacred space that draws on many forms and traditions of spirituality. From Shamanism, yoga nidra, Kundalini, Archetypes, Tarot, Astrology, this training expanded one’s consciousness to really create space for self-discovery. Allowing you to ask yourself the big questions, of who you are, what is your purpose, what are your beliefs. Our group was truly amazing, we laughed, played, cried, sang and held space for the self-realizations that came to the surface, I will be forever grateful.
Juliana and Bianca have created a program that is their own authentic expression of Yoga that beautifully intertwines spirituality, anatomy, tradition and practice. Both are incredible humans who were pillars of love and support throughout a thoughtfully created program to challenge and expand oneself. They brought in different educators from life-coaches, to prenatal/kids yoga instructors, shamans, and kundalini instructors creating a huge spectrum of learning and experiences. Posture labbing poses, going through different modifications, and the anatomy to ensure we have the knowledge to keep students physically safe during our classes created a confidence to teach the practice.
I would highly recommend this course to anyone, even if teaching yoga isn’t on their to do list. It is so much more than that and will set you on a path of self-discovery and self-love. I think this training is truly unique and a gift to anyone that takes it.”
“I will forever think of my life from now on divided into 2 parts. Before and after this yoga teacher training. I hardly feel like the same person I was before I began. I learned so much in 5 short months. I’m finding the experience very difficult to put into words. I think it’s because my experience can’t be described merely by words. It felt like so much more than that.
I recommend that every single person should take this training. I mean EVERYONE. Even if you don’t ‘do’ yoga. It’s so much more than that. It’s learning about yourself, stepping out of your comfort zone, diving into the mystic and exploring who you really are. In life and on your mat.
The teacher experience was exceptional. So many fun memories. So many adventures in meditation, kid’s yoga, shamanism, nidra, traditional yoga philosophy, anatomy, modifications, archetypes...the list goes on and on. So many exciting guest speakers and teachers. Unlike anything you could imagine.
I can’t say enough great thing about the facilitators. Juliana and Bianca are like a perfect yin-yang. Juliana brings this mystical, feminine, artistic, and spiritual side to the teaching while Bianca brings a more robust energy that’s filled with muscles, anatomy, safety standards, injuries, sequence modifications and physical movement. Creating this perfect blend of yoga and spirituality. I can’t recommend this program enough.
I look forward to returning and continuing with the training when their 300 hour teacher training is offered. This community is so accepting and loving and I’m so so so happy and grateful to be a part of this yoga family.”
