I'm offering bilingual private Kripalu yoga classes in Montreal for people of all ages, experience, and mobility. My focus is on connecting breath, mind, and body and helping to reverse postural imbalances through warm-ups, postures, breathwork, relaxation, and meditation....

"Understanding fascia (the connective tissue network that holds us together) is essential to the dance between stability and movement – crucial in high performance, central in recovery from injury and disability, and ever-present in our daily life from our embryological beginnings to the last breath we take." - Tom Myers
➼ Try it out: Vary your movement and exercise to keep your fascia healthy and enable the water you drink to reach all your tissues!
Mudras are gestures that promote physical health and psychological balance. They are wonderful tools to enrich your yoga practice or ground yourself throughout the day.
➼ In this photo: Samputa Mudra (or Gesture of the Treasure Chest) helps us connect to our inner voice of truth, enabling us to communicate with clarity and integrity.
I suffered from chronic digestive issues for years, brought on by a combination of poor diet, stress, and unsupportive lifestyle habits.
This post by l'Académie Végétale par Crudessence (French only) offers a few simple tips that can help bring your digestive system into balance.
➼ My favorite: Deep breathing for 20 seconds before eating, which activates the parasympathetic/rest-and-digest system.
“Self-observation brings us closer to truth. When the mind is steady, we can see a little truth. When the mind is disturbed, we can’t see anything. Growth allows a portion of the mind to remain an objective witness even in a disturbed state. The witness is always there, if one can keep a wakeful attitude in one’s self.”
- Swami Kripalu
Yoga Nidra, a type of guided meditation that is practiced lying down, has become one of my favorite tools to cultivate greater ease and vitality each day! 20 minutes of Yoga Nidra is equated with 3 hours of sleep 💤
➼ Try it out: Grab a blanket, lie down on a mat or your bed and let Jennifer Reis' track guide you into deep relaxation.
Thanks @Julian Haber Photography for catching sunrise with me and sharing the more candid shots (beer+yoga anyone?!)
Merci @Julian Haber Photography d'avoir saisi la magie de ce lever de soleil, et surtout de ne pas cacher les photos les plus insolites (bière et yoga font parfois bon mélange) !
