Denise Davis-Gains and Atlas Yoga are a culmination of a life-time of spiritual pilgrimage. As a young child Denise learned to move gracefully and appreciate music, she enjoyed a good story with a lesson and was blown wide open when spirit, movement and sacred music met on the yoga mat in 1993. Since that time Denise has walked a path towards wholeness and integration as a healer, yoga teacher, mentor and leader.
“My interest in teaching yoga comes from a desire to live my dharma, to do what I have come here to do; to make a difference in people lives. Yoga saves my life everyday.It is my hope that through my life’s work more people can find the gift in yoga and heal themselves and those around them, dispelling the myth of separation and move towards a different world. A world where peace is possible for individuals and the global community”.

Jill’s love affair with yoga began in England where she first learned the art of surrender and the beauty of being present in the moment. Awestruck by her experience of the powers of the breath and its potency in childbirth, Jill began to envisage herself passing on the secrets of a sweet pre-natal practice. Her aim is to support and guide other women as they prepare for their own passage into parenthood, helping them to feel more comfortable in their ever changing bodies and to feel empowered to move through their labour using breath and postures to remain relaxed and in control.
Jill tunes in to her creative power and she brings joy and light into her life and the lives of others. Her contagious smile and dancing eyes bring comfort to her students and her calming character radiates throughout every class that she teaches.
Company Mission Statement: Skilled Hands and an Open Heart. It is my mission to provide you with deep, attentive touch therapy that actively engages you in your healing and catalyzes you toward health and well-being. Using Shiatsu and mulitple treatment techniques, we will work together towards a complete body image. This will provide you greater access to information from your body with fewer areas of ‘motor-sensory amnesia’ , with greater length, rather then compression and greater resilience, allowing you to bear stress without breaking. This new information will also allow your body to perform with reduced effort, reduced pain and improved range of motion.
Company Values Statement: My first consideration is always the health and well being of the client. I will continually strive to improve my knowledge and professional skills. I will respect the client’s physical and emotional state and will not abuse clients through actions, words or silence, nor take advantage of the therapeutic relationship. I acknowledge the inherent worth and individuality of each person and therefore will not unjustly discriminate against clients and colleagues. I will encourage and educate the client in the development of a health enhancing lifestyle. When it is necessary in the interest of the client’s health and well being, I will suggest that they seek an alternate source of medical care.
Company Vision Statement: To become recognized for excellence in clinical massage therapy throughout Guelph and the surrounding area by improving the quality of life of my patients by providing them with personal and comprehensive treatment.
