French Program and Social Media Coordinator
How long have you been with YogaFit?
I have been with YogaFit for more than a year now.
Your morning must-haves?
A green juice followed by a HIIT [high-intensity interval training] and my personal Yoga practice. Once I am done with all this, I like to drink one or two espressos to start the day.
Your favourite yoga pose?
My favourite yoga poses are the Warriors. Warrior I, II, III, and reverse. I really like them all making it impossible to choose one!
Have you taken any YogaFit trainings?
The title of your biography?
Don't wait for someone to bring you flowers, create your own garden.
What brought you to your mat?
Deepen my personal practice to help my students on their own journey and find peace every morning.
If you could have any super power what would it be?
I would like to hold the power of healing my brothers and sisters. I want to be a Warrior of the Light who turns hatred into Peace, fear into Love, pain into Joy, and doubt into Gratitude.
How did you discover YogaFit?
I discovered YogaFit Canada because of my beloved mother. She wanted to take the Level One: Foundations to learn how to teach when I wanted to follow her only to learn all the difficult poses. My YogaFit journey started in June 2015, the most life-changing event of my life.
What do you enjoy the most about your job?
New friendships, building YogaFit's community, realizing our positive impact and how grateful people are, how YogaFit changed so many lives and will continue to do so, bringing Yoga to the masses #iloveyogafit
What is your favourite YogaFit memory so far?
It is hard to pick only one since I have had many but my favourite memory would be at our 2016 Montreal MBF when I went to talk to Lisa about the opening for a job she had at YogaFit Canada. I was hired and started working with my YogaFit family the following month.
What does yoga mean to you?
Yoga means to let go, appreciate what I have, breathe no matter what happens, get to know my true Self, and find the strength within to accomplish anything that stands between me and my dreams.
