About Me

My three passions are: yoga, teaching, young people.

I facilitate young people's journeys of exploration.

I am a passionate, experienced and qualified teacher with more than 20 years in the classroom (various grades, subjects and school settings).
I have been teaching yoga since 2008. In the last six years (since 2015), I have been focusing exclusively on children and teenagers.

About My Service

I am a completely bilingual (French/English) teacher who specializes in yoga and mindfulness for children, teenagers and young adults in the Ottawa/Gatineau area.

I believe that yoga is much more than a physical practice. All my classes include moments of introspection, dialogue and mindfulness in a safe, nurturing and accepting space.

Yoga offers youth life tools to deal with life, which include: emotional intelligence, increase self-awareness and compassion, a deeper connection to oneself and others, resilience and courage, positivity and confidence.

I offer programs in schools and in the community.
