Aaaaaahhhh… July.  A month of gorgeous weather, vacations and in my case new beginnings! As you likely know if you read my others blog posts, there have been some major shifts in my life in the last few months.  So much so that I missed the June YTT weekend to spend extra time with my sons, who needed it.  These last few months have been a roller coaster for me, with fear and pain as my sidekicks.  I am able to ride these waves, I keep busy, I smile, I… Read More

Journaling is like listening to one’s self and whispering at the same time… It’s been awhile since I took the time to journal.  Well, to be honest, it’s not so simple.  I actually carry a beautiful white and pink journal with the words BE HAPPY on the front cover with me all the time.  At the start of the year, I bought this journal to write my intentions for the road ahead.  My initial posts began with words of gratitude and inspiration, my aspirations and visions, as well as the… Read More

If you’re not marrying breath to movement, then it’s not yoga… Pattabhi Jois This second YTT weekend was EPIC (disclaimer: I think I might say this every month). I’m home now, sipping a glass of wine, and my mind is buzzing with new information. Let me break this down. But first, a thought on the community: I’m not sure where the magic comes from, is it the studio, the people, the yoga ? I don’t know. Every single person is wonderful. The YTT trainees, the mentors, the teachers, the staff,… Read More

I was pretty nervous driving to Energie EnCorps from Montreal on Saturday morning. My bag was packed the night before and I went to bed too late. I got to the studio too early, always do, and hung out in the Tim’s parking lot for about 25 minutes. My first impression walking in from the cold was that of being welcome – there was the smell of essential oils in the air, people greeting each other, smiling. A good start!  Introductions also helped assuage some nervousness, every single person seemed… Read More


yoga west island ashtanga mysore best yoga teacher training

Contrary to popular belief the Mysore Yoga classes are not exclusively for double-jointed, contortionist yogis that know the Ashtanga Primary Series by heart.  And guess what… mysore classes are not designed to make you sore.   Phew, now that I got that off my plate… Allow me to demystify the mystery of Mysore and explain to you why you should give it a try. Mysore yoga is a class taught in the traditional teaching style of Ashtanga yoga.  Rather than a led class with the teacher cueing the poses at the… Read More

best osteopath west island energie encorps herniated disc back pain

I suffered from lower back pain for many years, and as an osteopath I was well surrounded to be able to access quality treatments. Nevertheless, my pain always came back because I came to realize I was missing core strength and thoracic mobility. After 6 months of dedicated yoga and gymnastics training, my back pain became a story of the past. The reality is that we are all different, and there isn’t one answer for everyone, but I believe that symptoms arise from a combination of factors and that the… Read More
