I began practicing yoga in 1996, and started teaching in 1999 at the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in Western Massachusetts. In 2000, upon completion of a two year residency program and a 500 hour Kripalu Yoga Teacher Training, I've pursued my training with teachers from different horizons and schools of thoughts, both in Montreal and abroad. Currently, I teach group and private classes for beginners, intermediate, advanced and pregnant students. I believe yoga is a great means to reconnect to ourselves, our bodies, our emotions and our thoughts. During the poses we focus on alignment principles, as well as developing a sense of self-awareness, self-observation and compassion.
In massage therapy I practice the Reiki Usui method and Thai Yoga massage, as well as Swedish massage and Myofascial Therapy. I find massage therapy to be a complementary tool in any quest for physical, emotional and psychological well being; it helps in reducing stress levels (yours as well as mine!), and works equally for sedentary and active people.
