Meet Ruth


Ruth was transplanted from Southern Ontario in 2003, with three, now grown somewhat sassy, children. A famous dabbler she has tried everything from meditation to martial arts, from warrior dashes to Improv comedy, but Yoga and meditation have remained her physical, emotional and spiritual refuge and the only thing that slows down her madly off in all directions brain.

She’s completed multiple 200hr yoga teacher trainings and finished her 500hr in 2018. She also leads 200hr and 300hr teacher trainings in multiple formats.

She has certifications in Personal Training, Life Coaching, Yoga as Integrative Medicine, Advanced Yoga Assists, and Advanced Vinyasa teaching.

She has a wicked cool crystal singing bowl and an equally cool ocean drum and she is not afraid to use them.

She is also an avid mixed media artist, photographer, writer, and editor.



Meet Ellen


Ellen first came to the practice of yoga in 2005 to help heal injuries sustained through years of martial arts training. A student of hot yoga since 2010, she gravitated toward both the discipline of the practice and the health benefits of the intense heat.

Ellen completed her CYT 200 hour training at Prairie Yoga in May 2013 and has been teaching ever since. Ellen views yoga as a continuously evolving process that can be approached with a fresh perspective in every class for everyone. She believes that understanding the anatomy behind the movements and the “why” of the postures is essential for students in developing a mindful practice.

Once the postures are deeply felt and understood in the physical body, the mind is then free to focus on the more spiritual aspects of practice. She is passionate about the role of yoga in recovery from addiction and is focusing on the integration of mindfulness practice and therapy in her career as an addictions counselor. 

Ellen also runs “Sober Yogis”, a social recovery network (please check back for times and dates). She enjoys teaching a variety of class styles, including traditional Hatha, Vinyasa Flow, Power Fusion, Restorative and Fitness.

Meet Mike



Mike is a flooring contractor by trade, and a yogi by choice. Currently, Mike teaches Hot Yoga, Vinyasa and Yin Yoga classes, while still maintaining a daily practice. Divorce drew him to yoga, but the benefits are what encourage him to continue practicing yoga on and off the mat.

Four years into his personal practice, the natural progression was to attend teacher training with Suddha Weixler at the Chicago Yoga Center.

Mike is currently a 500RYT and started teaching in 2013. At fifty some odd years old, he says that he is in the best place he’s ever been in his life.


His mantra is: “Through yoga we re-establish the mind–body–spirit connection, allowing us to live more fully in the present.” As a father of three, Mike is adamant about being physically, mentally, and spiritually fit for the future. The strategies he learns while practicing yoga help decrease stress and bring him peace. Whether you are a first-timer or a life-timer, Mike invites students to join him on this journey.

Join Us On Our New Journey

Yoga practices are always about the practitioner. The asana practice is not necessarily about ‘mastering’ the postures.

It is more about adapting them so that they serve the unique ever changing needs of the students.

At Saha our focus is about making the practice fun, creative, and relevant to what is going on for us each day.
