Qu’est-ce que l’ostéopathie? L’ostéopathie est une médecine alternative. Son objectif est de prévenir et de soigner les dysfonctionnements physiques grâce à l’application de techniques manuelles douces. Qu’est-ce qui le rend différent? L’ostéopathie se distingue des autres thérapies manuelles par sa philosophie et son évaluation. Un ostéopathe est constamment à la recherche de la cause fondamentale des dysfonctionnements physiques et, comme le corps est constitué de muscles, d’os, d’organes, de liquides et bien plus encore, le thérapeute évaluera tous ces aspects afin de considérer le corps dans son ensemble. Cela s’appelle… Read More


Writing this last ‘official’ blog post was more difficult than writing the others. Partly, yes, because life just happens to be really busy for me these days. But I think in large part, I didn’t want to write it. Writing this post, following the last YTT weekend, it marks an ending. It also marks a new beginning, one that I am very proud of, but an ending in the more literal sense: our final weekend together as a group. Sure, we’ll see each other again, that I have no doubt,… Read More


This month was the first YTT weekend since our retreat. Upon arrival on Saturday morning, the room was charged with energy and excitement, even at 7 in the morning. Finding ourselves together in the same room again was a joy. There was also nervous energy, as we knew from pre-weekend emails, that we would be teaching this weekend. We started the day Saturday by discussing kriya yoga. Patanjali essentially described Kriya yoga as yoga for beginners. Not because it is easy, but because we know that the physical practice of… 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


The first snow storm of the season made me think of how important it is to shovel snow safely this winter!  To help you avoid injury I decided to write this article…. Did you know that more than 11 000 people are treated each year from snow shoveling incidents in the US alone? But the good news is that most of these incident can easily be avoided, this is how… I often see patients with lower back injuries in winter,  so you won’t be surprised that most emergency diagnosis after… Read More


west island fermentation workshop

What is Kombucha? What is Scoby? What is that drink that everyone is talking about?  Kombucha is a fermented tea that has aged for about 4 weeks, and a SCOBY is that weird alien looking thing on top of it! Scoby stands for Symbiotic Culture of Bacteria and Yeast. What a mouthful! In all seriousness, Kombucha is a fizzy, acidic (almost like apple cider), fun drink that has many health benefits. Drinking one glass of this stuff is equal to having a cup of freshly made coffee, minus the caffeine… Read More


west island montreal restorative yoga

Restorative yoga + massage is one of our most popular classes.  In fall 2014, I decided to try it out for the first time and I was mind-blowing by the outcome! At that time, I was suffering from an injury in the low back and this class helped me to release any blockage from that body area. How was I able to release them? By letting myself go, through deep breath accompanied with unavoidable tears. I felt safe and ready to cry in that sacred space. After this first experience,… Read More
