Real Evolution Yoga is a fully integrated yoga practice that generates power by building flexibility and strength. This unique methodology incorporates yoga, human development principles, somatics and scientific research on vitality and longevity. The intention behind our practice is to facilitate the creation of new and powerful patterns in mind, body and heart that will become the drivers for unimagined levels of health, satisfaction and effectiveness.
While working as a Civil Law Enforcement Officer in 2003, Kevin was introduced to yoga and quickly discovered the benefits of creating balance between body, mind and heart. Since then, he has practiced and studied various styles of yoga with a focus on vinyasa flow.
In 2006, Kevin and Hali, his wife, co-founded Yogadown Studios in Calgary, Alberta. Kevin co-founded and co-developed the Inspirational Yoga Teacher Trainings with Hali in 2007, blending his love of yoga and passion for human development into a unique leadership and teacher training program. From 2007 – 2012 he co-facilitated Inspirational Yoga programs in Canada, United States and Costa Rica. Kevin began participating with Baptiste Yoga in 2009 and worked closely with Baron Baptiste from 2010 – 2012 as Program Team Manager and Production Supervisor at teacher training programs.
With adventure in mind, Kevin, Hali and their daughter Bili Be moved to Playa Negra, Costa Rica in 2010 and founded Peace Retreat — a yoga and wellness retreat centre founded on the principles of wholistic healing and balance. Most recently, Kevin is co-founder of Real Evolution Yoga.

Hali was introduced to yoga in 1996 and over the next eight years, while studying Canadian Law, Forensic Accounting and Private Investigation, her practice became an integral part of her life. In 2005, while teaching law classes at a Canadian College, Hali’s growing love for her practice led her to begin teaching yoga and meditation.
Since then, Hali has been a dedicated student of yoga, meditation, personal growth, and holistic healthcare, resulting in certifications as a Yoga Teacher, Ayurvedic and Holistic Lifestyle Coach. In 2007, Hali founded three yoga studios in Canada, launched the Inspirational Yoga Teacher Training, and began co-teaching workshops and teacher trainings with her husband, Kevin, in Canada, the U.S., and Costa Rica.
In 2010, Hali and Kevin left Canada and moved to Costa Rica to open a Retreat Centre, focused on yoga and personal transformation, now known as the Peace Retreat. Most recently, Hali is co-founder of Real Evolution Yoga.
