August 18th – 21st
From Wanderlust Hollywood
Yoga is the love of my life. It’s my deepest motivation. It moves and drives the actions I take, and it lights up the lens through which I see the world. I love the precision of Iyengar, and the way in which it aligns the body. I appreciate equally the freedom and creativity Vinyasa offers, and the way Asana can become a dance once the poses are understood. I blend the two together, and offer an intelligent and fun experience. I am a constant learner and an avid student, and am always taking what I learn into what I teach.
Workshop: ”Shape Shifter”
Inversions are an important component of almost every existing Yoga system, and thus learning to find freedom and comfort upside-down is an integral part of contemporary Yoga Asana (postures). There are big anatomical shifts occurring in Western bodies, due to “I Phone culture”, and our new tendency to look down – changing the curve of the cervical spine (neck), and making it weak. Poses like headstand can thus be very problematic, and should be approached with care and attention to these new anatomical shifts. In this workshop, we’ll learn how to practice inversions safely, and intelligently. We’ll get your Handstand and your Pincha aligned and feeling amazing. And acquire techniques that will keep you practicing for a life time, pain free and wth ease. Come play around, get upside down, and shift your shape, so inversions become effort- less.

Hailing from Ottawa, Jaimée works as a registered yoga teacher and writer in Toronto. She loves to travel, cook, colour, paint, sing, day dream and move. Her goals include learning how to ride a bike with no hands and successfully growing a vegetable garden. She leads a challenging and fluid Vinyasa style class, defined by thoughtful sequences that consider both the physical and energetic properties of the practice. Helping people connect to their body, expand their consciousness, and holding space for them to listen, is the best way she can imagine being of service. Jaimée is a Lululemon Ambassador and currently teaches throughout the city of Toronto. She also occasionally contributes to The Dance Current magazine as a news writer. For more: www.jaimeehorn.com

Balance your elements (winter/water, spring/wood)
yoga|massage therapy | aromatherapy
with Patricia Letendre et Maïté Godin
Sept 17th 2017 – Feb 25th & May 6th
These yoga classes target the balance of your elements throughout the seasons based on the principles of traditional Chinese medicine.
The classes consist of 60 minutes of vinyasa flow (yang) followed by 60 minutes of yin, during which we use the therapeutic benefits of essential oils as well as massotherapy maneuvers to activate the energy work of the meridians.
I discover yoga in 2001 during a session of classical ballet training at Montreal’s Dance Conservatory. The two first years of my voyage through this discipline were more difficult. Slowly, my relationship with yoga transformed itself into love at first sight. It then became obvious to me that I needed to teach. In 2009, I started the Hatha yoga teacher training at the Satyam school of Hatha yoga with Swami Premananda Saraswati (Hervé Blondon). Yoga is a passion, a daily exercise, but especially a lifestyle that allows me to maintain harmony in all aspects of my life. For me, a yoga class is a protected space that allows each person to enter inside themselves and achieve their own objectives, their own well-being.
Having always been intrigued by the human nature, my journey through massage therapy allowed me to explore the combination between our body composition and our emotional dimension. In 2007 I started my training in Swedish therapeutic massage at the Guijek school in Montreal. I then continued my training, focusing more on globalizing and energetic approaches, such as Yoga, Reiki and Lomilomi. Today, I want to offer assets to the population so that they can take care of themselves using different techniques.
