After growing up in various forms of dance, Sylvie began practicing yoga while in high school. In the fall of 2014, she moved to Montreal to study at McGill University and shortly thereafter began practicing at Ashtanga Yoga Montreal (AYM) yoga studio. She completed her teacher training with the studio's founder Allison Ulan in the summer of 2017 and then spent 12 weeks student teaching in Restorative Yoga at AYM under the direction of Jeanne Mudie. Her classes are Ashtanga-based and focus on working with the body’s optimal alignment to provide students a healthy and balanced approach to their yoga practice.
This yoga class integrates the postures, breathing exercises, relaxation and meditation to harmonize you on every level—spirit, mind, and body. All levels welcome.
Deeply nurturing and healing, Restorative Yoga takes you through the poses supported by blankets and props to allow you to completely relax and let go into stillness. This practice focuses on poses with longer holds, including seated forward folds, easy twists, and gentle backbends.
Vinyasa means “breath-synchronized movement”. Poses flow from one to another in conjunction with the breath. Participants leave feeling more relaxed, while increasing flexibility and creating harmony of the mind and body. All levels welcome.
Utilizing deep stretches and special attention to breath awareness to open up energy channels, Yin Yoga will leave you feeling limber, relaxed, and refreshed. Poses held for 3-5 minutes to encourage release of joint stiffness and promote flexibility and mobility. It’s the perfect complement to a more active exercise routine
