Be Bold.  Be Brave.  Be Beautiful.  How do you feel when you hear these words?  Some people think… Hell yeah!  Damn right… Other’s may cower at this statement thinking something like… Hmmmm.  Not quite there yet.  Oh please…  Let me just hide in this crowd. To Be Bold, Brave and Beautiful, is a practice.  It takes being and feeling good in your own skin.  Bold enough to be try something new and to believe in yourself enough, to let your beauty shine out…  It’s not easy.  It’s flipping scary.  But if… Read More

Over the past few months, I have been given these amazing… Read More


In my sixth Energie EnCorps Ashtanga 200hr yoga teacher training weekend, we finished going over all of the postures in the primary series. I feel comfortable with the postures and know what comes next since I practice mysore regularly and do weekly led ashtanga classes. Still, I have a long way to go to perfect each posture in the series but I am patient with myself to know that with enough practice, I will get there. Some postures might even take years for me to be comfortable to perform its… Read More

I can’t believe our fifth yoga teacher training is completed! It is going by so fast but I already feel like I have learned so much and have come out of my comfort zone. Every year, Rozel Gonales, the owner of Energie Encorps, organizes a yoga class to raise money for the Leukaemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada. I had the opportunity to teach the sun salutation part of the class. The only other time I taught in front of people was in a small class of five people. This… Read More

yoga anatomy yoga teacher training west island rozel gonzales

Before going into my second weekend at Energie EnCorps 200h Ashtanga yoga teacher training (YTT), I took a look at what we were covering. The human anatomy? I thought we were just going over more poses from the Primary Series of Ashtanga.   Reminiscing back to my high school biology class, all I remember were complicated names of bones, tissue, and muscle. In a nutshell, I was somewhat nervous on what to expect. Jamie Lee, the special guest speaker we had that week, was the presenter on the topic. Jamie made… Read More


It’s early morning and I can smell the freshness of the morning dew on the grass through my bedroom window.  Another beautiful summer day after yesterday’s perfect St. Jean day off.   Every morning when I get up, I like to start off my day with a “thought of thankfulness”.  What am I grateful for today?  I do this to help me to set the tone for the day… to show appreciation for the fact that I am here and that I have a whole day ahead of me to… Read More
