Shyla Gaebel is a Dakota woman from Sioux Valley Dakota Nation, who has been on a journey of reclaiming her roots and identity. She was born and raised by her mom in Regina, Saskatchewan on Treaty Four Land. For as long as she can remember, she was ashamed and embarrassed about being an Indigenous woman. In 2018, she decided to find her birth father, this was the piece that opened the door to healing and reclaiming. 

She received her 200-hour Yoga Teacher Certification in Regina, Saskatchewan in 2019. In 2020, a chance encounter with another yogi from her reserve gifted her the opportunity to be able to visit Sioux Valley Dakota Nation for the very first time and meet family she didn’t know she had. Since then, she committed to stepping into her power as a strong Dakota woman and a lifelong journey of reclaiming her culture and identity. She has had many opportunities to teach yoga, including at the First Nations University, Sask Polytech, Sask Urban Native Teacher Education Program (SUNTEP), Sask Gaming, Indigenous Services Canada, and White Raven Healing Center. Recently she received her 500-hour Trauma Informed Teacher Training Certificate and has made it her mission to teach the healing practice of yoga to Residential School Survivors and the First Nations Community. She strongly believes this modality should be accessible and available to all. 

By teaching from an Indigenous perspective, she shows how one can find balance — mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually through the ceremony of yoga.
