After living from coast to coast, Deanna has finally settled here in beautiful Collingwood and couldn’t be more proud to call this place home. She has a background in social work which has helped her to expand her skillset and has made helping people truly second-nature.

Always one to follow her passion - Deanna’s love of holistic living led her to Thailand to receive her yoga instructor training. Soon after, this same passion led her to become a registered massage therapist, giving her a renewed outlook on the concept of health and wellbeing.

Deanna is thrilled to come together with her like-minded business partner Jessica to bring a unique wellness experience to the town of Collingwood, where people can come together, learn, and grow.

Jessica moved to Collingwood from Toronto in 2017 and hasn’t looked back.  With its beautiful trails, sunny shores and welcoming community Collingwood is the perfect place to call home.  It was this move that brought her the great fortune of meeting, now business partner and co-owner, Deanna Harris. Their shared passion for health and wellness and entrepreneurial spirit inspired them to open Cedar and Sage.

No stranger to the arts, Jessica completed a degree in musical theatre focusing on singing, dancing and acting. Fast forward several years and her love for movement and the human body transformed into a fulfilling career as an RMT with a renewed passion for health and well being.  The opening of Cedar and Sage is an exciting new chapter and Jessica is thrilled to share it with the community of Collingwood!

Carley Simandl

Carley started her career as a passionate and dedicated Make-up Artist. While working so closely with the skin and peoples faces, Carley noticed many patterns of dehydration and malnutrition are very common. On a quest to learn more about nutrition, she attended The Canadian School of Natural Nutrition and became a Registered Holistic Nutritionist. True Beauty is from the Inside-out. 

“If you can not pronounce it, do not eat it or put it on your skin”

Carley tried yoga for the first time at 30 years old and instantly loved the poses, connection to breath and transformative benefits.  In 2015, Carley went to Nicaragua and completed her first 500 yoga teacher training. Since her initial teaching training, she has completed 400 more hours of yoga training and has a certificate in Flow & Functional Power Yoga. 

Yoga is part of the healthy lifestyle puzzle and movement is such a critical adjunct to nutrition. Combining the best of all worlds, Carley coaches a healthy lifestyle while simplifying the process, keeping it educational and fun.

“It is the small things that you do daily that make the biggest difference”

Jill Diltz

Beginning my yoga journey due to a childhood back injury that left me with scoliosis. I quickly realized that the benefits of yoga were not just physical but much more then that. Jumping into my training 8 years ago in Costa Rica I competed my 200H vinyasa flow teacher training. Synchronizing breathe and movement to encompass a series of poses to engage the core, soul & mind for a more balanced physicality.

Kaely Bell

Kaely fell in love with yoga when she took her first class in 2010, and has been practicing ever since. Her journey and experiences have transformed her life, inspiring her to share the gift of Yoga and Ayurveda with others. At the start of 2016, Kaely completed her Modo Yoga teacher training In Nicaragua, and is now a 500 hour certified yoga instructor.

Kaely strives to help others develop body awareness and a balance between flexibility and strength. Most importantly, she sees yoga as a form of connection with our most honest selves. “Our lives are so busy, we are constantly under pressure, feeling stressed and sometimes out of control. Yoga has become my place of peace; it allows me to slow down, breathe and regroup.”

Kaely hopes to inspire people both on and off the mat through her yoga experience – whether in Midland, Wasaga or her hometown of Collingwood. Her free spirit is emulated in her love for nature and being active outdoors – she is often found hiking through the woods with her dog Finnegan.

“I am so thankful to the individual who introduced me to Yoga, it has allowed me to be me and showed me that I am enough. I wish to share this energy with others in hopes of changing the world in a positive way, one downward dog at a time.”
As the song goes, “Don’t worry, be happy!”; words Kaely lives by every day.

Marissa Dolotallas

Marissa lives for the moment - the joy, the peace, the ah-ha - and weaves this mindful presence into her yoga practice, teachings, and everyday life. Her yoga journey started soon after moving across the country from the west coast. She found yoga (or yoga found her!) at a time when she needed it most - reminding her to "release and let go", creating space for new chapters and personal growth. Inspired to learn more and share this with others, she completed her 200 hour training in 2009 and has since been sharing the joy of yoga with everyBODY.

Marissa continues to live her yoga on and off the mat in the great outdoors. She is often found hiking or with a paddle in hand as an SUP and kayak instructor and wilderness guide, hosting yoga adventure retreats in Ontario and abroad.

Her invitation: tune in and find your zen zone, connect with your mind-body-spirit... and be your own agent of change, healing, and transformation. Breathe in. Bliss out. Choose Joy.

Shayne grew up in the small town of Ravenna, Ontario, where she discovered an immense passion for nature, community, and physical activity. Since then, she has remained curious about the synergistic connections between body, mind, and spirit.

Shayne has instructed yoga for many organizations on the west coast, including the UBC Yoga Club, Fast and Female Canada, Gathering Our Voices, the First Nations House of Learning, SisuGirls, and more. She appreciates the multifaceted benefits of a dedicated yoga practice, and saturates each of her classes with creative sequencing, authentic teachings, precise alignment cues, and opportunities for deep inquiry. Her mission is to empower her students to develop a sense of wonder for their bodies, their planet, and their universe.

Terry Brancati

During an expansive five year journey travelling the world, Terry experienced numerous synchronicities that led her to a path of self discovery, and sparked her longing for a personal understanding of inner peace. Through realizing that the quest doesn’t end, Terry has allowed herself to be guided towards her calling of holding space for others, helping them to focus inwardly and remember that all that they seek lies within themselves.

Terry studied Holistic Nutrition on Vancouver Island and completed her 200 hr YYT in Peru in early 2019. She plans to marry these two passions together to share, create, and expand herself and others. Allowing herself to be a channel of whatever is meant to flow and be shared, her nurturing classes aim to leave you feeling connected, renewed, and bala
