I have always maintained that what we do today impacts our tomorrows and believe strongly that proper nutrition, movement, exercise, stress management and relationship building is crucial to health and wellness. My trilingual childhood (English, French and German) childhood was spent studying ballet and riding horses. I studied dance at Université de Montreal and taught Ballet Jazz, Aqua Fit, Pre-Natal, Fitness and CPR through the 80's. It was at this time that I learnt how to play tennis, ski and windsurf. I loved teaching and quickly realized the importance of being able to move with ease and grace through good posture and movement patterns, thereby reducing the risk of injury. I did leave the dance industry for 14 years to develop my business skills as a Realtor, which eventually led me to an opportunity in 2002 to join the fitness world and become a personal trainer. I immersed myself in every course I could take! BOSU®, speed, strength, endurance posture- I even became a track and field coach! My thirst for learning was unquenchable! The human body is fascinating and I love learning about it every day. The next logical step was to complete a 500hr Yoga teacher training course at Naada Yoga in Montreal. This is where I was first introduced to Yoga Tune Up® at a weekend workshop with Dawn Mauricio. As I love water sports, I also am certified to teach SUP Yoga and now having completed the Level 1 teacher training with Todd Lavictoire, Breath and Bliss with Jill Miller and Core Integration Immersion with Lisa , I am inspired to delve into every aspect Yoga Tune Up® and Jill Miller has to offer. I teach weekly classes at my home studio, at the West Island Cancer Wellness Center, for the town of St. Lazare and at Studio 462 in Hudson. Come try one! I am honored to be part of a network of such well trained professionals and I am excited to learn and share all this with you, helping you be Fit and Well........for a Lifetime!
