Yoga fascinates me. Through it's practice, I have found deep guidance that never seems to steer me wrong. Dedication to an open mind and heart has brought me to this place where I stand today. Feeling so incredibly grateful for my path I have created in life, the good, the bad and the ups and downs that constantly frame my approach to practice and teaching.

My background in workplace health made me realize there was and still is a need for a major shift in the way people look after their bodies and maintain overall good health. Watching people treat rather than prevent was my biggest influence while working on the Healthy LifeWorks Project, a government based research project I was involved with from 2005-2007. Helping people achieve more balance and levity in life was going to become my new passion!

I was introduced to Hot Yoga in Halifax in 2007. It was a wonderful studio paired with some amazing instructors, which led me to take my Moksha teacher training in Kerala, India in 2010. My passion for the human body and deep respect for what Yoga has done for me has left me fascinated by the inner workings and potential for us all. Teaching in Calgary and Canmore, Alberta led me to my second training with Baron Baptiste. I love to learn and will continue this with my own practice and sharing the practice of Yoga with all who are willing, curious and open to step onto the mat!

What Client's Say

Louise Poirier

I've been practicing yoga on and off for the past 15 years with an amazing instructor who closed shop in December. In January, I was given a one-month membership at PuraVida, and a true gift it has been. I had no expectations at the outset but was very pleasantly surprised to encounter welcoming, warm and very competent and respectful trainers who are both professional and friendly. The essence of the spirit of yoga can be found at this studio. The instructors I have met are encouraging and present challenges while still reminding students to move at one's pace, listening to one's body.

Le personnel du studio Pura Vida m'offre l'occasion de pratiquer le yoga dans une ambiance accueillante et paisible qui me permet d'améliorer ma santé physique ainsi que mon bien-être psychologique, mais ce qui importe le plus pour moi est la tranquillité d'esprit qui me reste en quittant les cours. Un véritable cadeau!
merci particulièrement à Melissa et Chantel:)
