I am a nature lover, adventure seeker and creative mastermind, my journey in yoga has been a wild ride and I intend to keep it that way.

I moved to the BC Rockies in 2009 to live at an Ashram and complete an intensive 3 month Hatha Teacher training certification.
I had no idea going in to this experience how much it would change my life, my direction, my thoughts, my attention. I shaved my head and got a job as coordinator to a yoga for youth not for profit in Ottawa where I lived for 2 years.
Since then I have dedicated my life teaching yoga and mindfulness to an extensive population. From toddlers, to seniors, in family shelters, community centres, high schools and hot yoga studios. My passion is to make these ancient teachings as accessible and relevant in our daily lives as possible.

In addition to a deep well of teaching experiences I bring a background in personal training, mindfulness yoga and vinyasa power flow into my classes.

I offer a practice to shine a light onto physical alignment while keeping balanced a sense of play and curiosity; investigating what is happening within the mind and using postures as the tools to continuously recreate oneself.

What Client's Say

Anne-Sophie Chiasson

For someone who has never been much of an active person, I got my proof this morning of how much I now love hot yoga which I started about 6 months ago. Since I didn't get to a class in the last week while Marc was away, I was up and ready for an 1.5 hour class this morning. I got there only to realize I had gotten the time wrong and had missed the class. I felt like crying, truly sad. Very strange feeling for me, as I've never felt this way about any sort of physical activity. Feeling grateful that I've found an activity that nurtures my body and soul. Thank you Pura Vida!!
