Melisande Yoga Mont-Tremblant
I have been practicing yoga for more than half of my life. I was born into a family that believed in the power of yoga and was influenced to begin practicing at a very young age. As a teenager I practiced sporadically, but each time I stepped onto my mat I felt a deep call to the practice of yoga. After many dark years of engaging in almost every self-sabotaging behavior possible, I knew that my only way out was through committing to this healing practice. Yoga has been, and continues to be, my greatest and most powerful support system. The healing, growth, and evolution I have experienced is paramount, and I vow to dedicate my life to helping others receive the same transformational effects. This is why I decided to become a yoga teacher, and why I have dedicated my life to sharing this incredible healing modality.
In 2016, after completing a degree in business management, I decided it was time to follow the call and travel to India to study yoga. After returning from this transformational journey, I began teaching right away and have not stopped since. I see myself as equally a teacher and a student. I am dedicated to the practice of yoga and wish to spend a lifetime learning, sharing and evolving. I have completed over 1000 hours in trainings including ashtanga yoga, vinyasa yoga, aerial yoga, yin yoga, barre fitness, FRS inspired mobility and studied with incredible teachers such as Kino Mcgreggor, Erin Evans, Lydia Zamorano, Sean Corne, Matt Phippen, Kate Gillespie, Meghan Currie, Bernie Clark and Carrie Owerko. I am an E-RYT 500 and recognized as a YACEP through Yoga Alliance. I continue to study with internationally renowned yoga instructors every year.
I have spent the last six years owning and operating Karma Shala Yoga, a yoga studio in Mont-Tremblant. Over this time, I refined my teaching method based on many different yoga modalities and movement practices. I developed an incredible community of like-minded individuals who also believe in the power of yoga to heal, support, and empower our lives. After almost seven years of operations, I decided to close Karma Shala to pursue my teaching goals and aspirations, without the management of a physical yoga studio. I continue to teach Yoga in Mont-Tremblant including Private Yoga classes Mont-Tremblant as well as online Yoga Classes Mont-Tremblant.
I am deeply inspired by the spirituality of yoga, but my method is rooted in modern day movement science. I have created a method of teaching that leaves students with an impressionable experience of connecting to all parts of themselves; physically, mentally, emotionally, energetically, and spiritually. Together, let’s explore the depth of this human experience and remember exactly who we are and why we are here!
