Best Yoga Instructor

Gold Winner Estelle Thomson, Dartmouth Yoga Centre

Silver Winner Jodi Brake, Bikram Yoga Halifax

Bronze Winner Helen Fong

Thomson can hold two golds aloft this year—she’s also your pick for Best Visual Artist. You can stretch with Thomson as early as 5:45am some mornings at Cow Bay Hall, and she’s a popular teacher at Dartmouth Yoga Centre as well. Catch up with Thomson somewhere in the HRM by checking out her calendar at, where there’s also an option to bring her to you. “I am indebted to my family, my friends and teachers,” she says. “Most importantly, I wouldn’t be the yoga teacher that I am today if it wasn’t for my precious students. Thank you.”
