Montreal September 2020 Mind Body Fitness Conference

We are so happy to be returning to Montreal in 2020. This French-speaking city is considered the cultural capital of Canada, and is a cosmopolitan celebration of Québécois style. The grand buildings of Vieux-Montréal will give you a taste of European flavor. The Basilique Notre-Dame is a confection of stained glass, and the Plateau Mont-Royal district will delight you with its quaint boutiques and cafés. Dig in to a massive plate of poutine to fuel up for a tour of the epic Olympic Park. (courtesy of Trip Advisor)

The Conference will be held Centre St. Pierre, 1212 rue Panet. We have secured a room block with discounted rates (see details below) at Hotel ZERO 1, 1 Rene-Levesque Est.. 

The hotel is an 8 minute drive and a 15 minute walk from Centre St. Pierre. 10 minutes by public transit.

YogaFit Restorative 08:00 - 18:00
YogaFit Restorative

YogaFit Props

Tight shoulders, hamstrings or hips can prevent even the most seasoned student from experiencing comfort and ease while doing yoga or even moving through the world. By reducing muscular effort and encouraging proper alignment, effective use of yoga props—blocks, blankets, bolsters, straps and even chairs—helps everyone to feel successful and enjoy the full benefits their practice.

YogaFit Yin Yoga 08:00 - 18:00
YogaFit Yin Yoga

YogaFit’s two day Yin Yoga training focuses on the other areas of our body often not considered in most yoga practices or fitness modalities. We are focused on the deeper tissues of our body: bones, joints, fascia and ligaments.  All of our tissues are important and need to be exercised so that we can achieve optimal health and vitality.  Throughout the training, we consistently work on surrendering to the pose, finding a sense of comfort through discomfort, learning to celebrate the stillness, while connecting with mindfulness.
