Vikara means transformation; to change with action. Vikara Yoga was created to offer safe space to connect with your mind, body and spirit and find the change you may be seeking. I strive as a teacher to provide a quiet and safe space for students to explore and find a true sense of their own personal balance. Vikara Yoga studio is located on a beautiful treed lot in Napier Ontario where classes, workshops and retreats are hosted for all to enjoy. I also travel to teach in offices and studios in an effort to bring yoga to those who are interested. The intention I have set for Vikara Yoga is to share the possibility of finding personal, emotional and spiritual balance and provide the opportunity for transformation.

About Misty Lucas
My name is Misty Lucas, the founder of Vikara yoga. In Sanskrit Vikara means transformation; to change with action. I chose this word because yoga transformed my life. I found the connection I had been seeking within myself and the world around me.
I am an insured and certified Registered Yoga instructor with Yoga Alliance and Canadian Yoga Alliance. I am Senior Faculty and Director of DevaTree’s 200hr certification in Corunna, Ontario. I have 1000 hours of advanced level training with DevaTree School of Yoga. I have continued with my yoga education and taken a Trauma Sensitive Yoga Course through Trauma Centre at the Justice Resource Institute. Being a Reiki Level II practitioner I am honoured to offer this amazing healing practice to my clients and blend the practice with Restorative Yoga.
My Sanskrit name is Shakti which I received after completing my 500hr certification. Briefly Shakti means power or empowerment.
I specialize in restorative yoga, rehabilitation and injury recovery, meditation, breath practices and trauma-informed yoga. My specialities have provided me the opportunity to work one on one with clients who have sustained injury in motor vehicle collisions.
I have shared the practice of yoga at multiple yoga studios and have shared yoga with the MS Society and with women at the Elgin Middlesex Detention Centre. At my beautiful home studio I offer private and semi-private classes, wellness workshops and healing retreats.
My dharma is to share my knowledge and inspire those around me to find connection within themselves and with others.
Vikara Yoga is a boutique studio that caters to students looking for an intimate and personal setting to practice yoga. My intention was to create a space that encourages individual growth and an expanded sense of community. The studio is set in nature that enhances your ability to find calm and to quiet the mind. Nothing is more important than building bonds with yourself and those around you.
Misty is an awesome yoga instructor! She can develop a plan to help you accomplish your goals, both in flexibility and mindfulness. After each session, I always left feeling relaxed both mentally and physically. P.M.
I was so grateful for Misty’s in-home, private, restorative yoga classes. I felt my body truly relax for the first time since my car accident. Not even massage therapy had been able to soothe me like that. I didn’t have to leave my house, or negate my relaxation by having to drive home again. Misty’s peaceful in-home classes were perfect for someone like me, recovering from pain and trauma. C.K.
