Moving from the Center – Core Strength Flow
@ Lole Atelier Montreal Ste-Catherine
A brilliant teacher I had once said; if you learn how to move from the center or core of your being – no asana is out of reach. If this interests you and you want to learn how nail asanas like Adho Mukha Vrksasana (hand stand or any inversion/arm balance); which chakras operate in this area – how they relate, find stability in the abdominal area to reinforce/strengthen your lower back or figure out how this region operates in your practice, and in your daily life then join me on Tuesday May 23 @ Lole 954 Ste Catherine Street West for a special Core Strength Flow. We will explore the 4 major muscles of the abdominal region, discuss how they work in most asanas and evolve your practice to a place of strength consciously radiating from the center.
Sun? Sand? Surf? Ocean? Yoga in Antigua? YES PLEASE!

A little Intro…
Often called the Urban Yogi, I am a Yoga teacher, international DJ and single mother.
My journey officially started when I was 17, after a traumatic injury during the Canada Games which ended my athletic career in 4 seconds. While recovering I found a copy of Autobiography of a Yogi which then led me to discover my mother’s copies of Light on Yoga, Yoga the Iyengar Way and finding a poster of Dharma Mittra’s 608 Asana. It was in those discoveries that I realized that Yoga had been with me all of my life weaving in and out of my childhood and adolescence and I ran from it at every turn. However when I needed it the most, the practice, was there. It brought me back from the brink of losing everything I had worked so hard to achieve during my athletic career to a place of stillness and healing.

Yoga Crush – Am I your crush?
I have been blessed to be featured on the #1 iTunes podcast in the spirituality and health Yoga Crush with Suzanne Moscovitch. In this episode I give a rare and raw interview about where my journey has taken me and where I am going. I get up close and personal and reveal the steps I have taken to start valuing my time as a yoga teacher (in the same way I have as an A-list DJ) and how I have managed to reap the rewards and claim my abundance. Here are some of the things I cover in my 90 minutes with Sue
- How I went from teaching 15 to 5 classes per week without sacrificing income
- How I overcame scarcity mindset and fear of failure
- How I balance being a single mom with growing a sustainable yoga career
- How I overcame impostor syndrome and stopped comparing myself to my peers
- Plus you’ll find out who MY YOGA Crushes are AND MORE

Interested in group classes with me?
If you have been wondering what practicing with me is like watch this video produced by the Blue Chitta Crew, filmed at the iconic Yoga Shak 372 Cremaize Est, in Montreal. With special guest Iemanjo providing live music.
Because we are all hippies anyway….
There are many benefits with taking a private classes; these are one to one sessions with me at Yoga-B Studio in Saint Lambert.
What are the benefits of taking private courses?
I teach yoga because I believe in its power to heal and to transform and I have seen that yoga can offer these gifts to anyone, no matter where they are starting from.
During a private session you are receiving the practice that is in line with the direct experience of yoga as it was passed down from teacher to student. One can focus and hone in on being present to the experience, refine their own practice and have time heal in a slower setting rather than a 60 minute group class; you receive my undivided attention to every one of your details, and the therapeutic benefits of each asana (pose).
Anatomy and physiology are explored as well bio-mechanical habits that we all get caught in (slouching, tense shoulders, hunching over, folding in rather than lifting up and out).

Pose of the week – Live @ Dama Hot Yoga
Anjaneyasana – Low Lunge Pose
One of my favorite asanas of all time! Partially due to its difficult simplicity. Provides a challenge as you move through all the chatter of the mind to let teh hips and pelvis release down to the earth. It refines the spirit an calms the mind. Anjaneya is the Sanskrit word which means “Son of Anjani” and Anjayneya is another name for Hindi God Hanuman in Hindu Mythology. Hanuman is Ram’s aide in Ramayana. God Hanuman helped lord Rama to get back Mata Sita from Ravana’s place called Lanka. Low Lunge Pose gets its name from the shape of body forms during asana. Anjaneyasana could be a complete package – it tones the body and calms the mind. You’re guaranteed to feel energized even when an intense low lunge exertion.
Some benefits include:
- Anjaneyasana makes the gluteus muscles and the quadriceps stronger.
- It gives the hips and hip flexors a good stretch.
- It opens up your shoulders, lungs, and chest.
- Low Lunge Pose helps you improve your balance.
- Increases your ability to concentrate and also builds core awareness.
- Anjaneyasana helps relieve sciatica.
- Low Lunge Pose stimulates the digestive and reproductive organs.
- If you practice this asana regularly, your body will be toned and energized.
