Geha Gonthier


Geha has been drawn to Eastern Philosophies and meditation since being a teenager. The first yoga class she took opened the door into a world of self awareness and self knowledge that she had been looking for.

Living in many different parts of the Western World, she had the great fortune to study with wonderful yoga teachers, exposing her to an eclectic mixture of styles: Kali Rae, founder of Tri Yoga, Leslie Kaminoff and his focus on yoga therapy, and Nancy Gilgoff, senior teacher of the Ashtanga method. Since coming to Edmonton in 2004 she has been teaching at the SATTVA of Yoga, formerly the Yoga Loft. She has been privileged to work with Rameen Peyrow and witness his development of SATTVA Yoga, a balanced method of hatha yoga integrating asana, meditation and pranayama to penetrate the question ‘who am I’. Geha is also a registered acupuncturist and the owner of Wellness on Whyte, a multi disciplinary Wellness Centre. Aside from teaching workshops on yoga, lifestyle, and Oriental Medicine, she is delighted to offer a weekly SATTVA Yoga class called ‘mala’ – stringing together all elements of the SATTVA yoga practice.
