Katie Farrar

Katie wants to share her passion for yoga, fitness and well-being, by making it accessible and approachable for everyone. Her fitness career began in Australia where she had her own personal training business, following an in-depth program at a fitness college. Katie began practising yoga herself in 2014 and knew immediately that she wanted to be able to teach and share it with others. She completed her life-changing 200hr Vinyasa Flow Teacher Training in Bali in 2015, then continued to practise, learn and teach with fellow yogis from around the world. Katie has now returned from her travels and is thrilled to be teaching in her home town.

Meg Leonard

Meg's passion for fitness was sparked as a teenager and has since become a wildfire. Discovering the confidence and endless benefits of dedicating to a healthy lifestyle, she became determined to motivate others to do the same. 
Her journey with Dynamic Fitness began four years ago, with a single Hot Athletica class, and she was hooked. She quickly set the goal to become certified, with teaching Hot Athletica foremost in her mind.
With the incredible support, encouragement, and a little pushing from her Dynamic family, she completed her canfitpro Personal Training Specialist Certification and is now proudly a part of the team of instructors at Dynamic Fitness.
Conquering challenges and accomplishing goals fuels the fire in Meg, and watching her classes and clients do the same inspires her everyday to continue to push herself towards her aspirations. 

Stefanie Phillips

Stefanie is originally from PEI, where she first started attending classes at Dynamic Fitness in 2011. It wasn't long before she fell in love with Dynamic’s signature service; Hot Athletica. Stefanie loves the upbeat tempo and energy of the class and to her this class is the perfect mix of exercise and fun. She always had a passion for health and fitness and so became a certified personal trainer through Fitness New Brunswick. Stefanie has also become a certified Hot Athletica instructor and looks forward to leading class.... Recently becoming a new mom to little boy Mason, she has found a new love for exercise and living a happy and healthy life with her family.

Celia Koughan

Celia's love for expressing creativity through movement began 13 years ago when she started dancing.  As a high school student struggling with self confidence and where to fit in, she discovered yoga and is eternally grateful for that discovery.  With the guidance of some very special teachers she decided to venture to Little Corn Island, Nicaragua where she completed her 200 hour yoga teacher training.  After discovering how potent yoga can be in all aspects of one's life, Celia confirmed that to be able to share her passion with others, and possibly inspire them in a way her teachers inspired her is a must for this lifetime.  She is trained in Vinyasa yoga and her classes fuse creativity with delicious movement, and ultra awareness to help you dive so much deeper than just the physical practice.  She is so excited to be joining the DF family!

Jessica Gillis

Jessica began her fitness journey a decade ago as a participant and immediately became hooked on the euphoria she felt by leading an active lifestyle.
 
Always in pursuit of a challenge, Jessica has completed numerous road races, including five half marathons and a triathlon with no intent of slowing down.  In 2013, with the goal of sharing her passion for fitness with others, Jessica completed the Personal Training Specialist (PTS) certification with the Canadian Fitness Professionals Association (canfitpro) and has been instructing group fitness classes ever since.
 
Jessica believes that physical fitness is the key to longevity as it equips us with the confidence, determination and power needed to conquer any challenge - whether it be mental or physical.  She is very excited to join the Dynamic team to lead her all-time favorite class - Hot Athletica!
