Five years ago, one of Alexandrine's good friends invited her to join him for a hot yoga class and she became totally addicted to the practice. Over the years, her practice became more and more diversified, from soft restorative sessions to intense and powerful vinyasa flows. The passion for yoga grew deeply and she felt the need to learn how to share it with others. In 2015, she completed a 500-hour Yoga Teacher Training at Naada Yoga in Montreal, where she discovered how wide and filled with endless knowledge the yoga world is with the help of amazing teachers. Way beyond just asanas, yoga is now a lifestyle and the feeling of discovering a little or a lot more everyday about it, about others and especially about herself drives her to push always further.

By teaching, she wants to guide her trainees to become more aware of their bodies, find ease in their movements, and trust their capacity.

She now wants to continue in this direction in life, she feels very fortunate to be able to share her passion to others through teaching.

Valerie discovered yoga a few years ago. Many questions about life and it’s meaning started to emerge and it was already clear that yoga was for her the best way to answer them. It is during her 2 year stay in London that yoga really integrated her everyday life and became a sort of ‘quest for better living’. In 2017, following major changes in her life, she finally decides to make the jump and leaves for Goa, India, where she completed a 200 hour Ashtanga/Vinyasa Flow teacher training. This experience made her realise that she wanted to share with others what she had the privilege of receiving from life. Now back in Montreal, she keeps learning everyday and wants her classes to be a place where everyone can progress at their own pace.
‘’Patience, acceptation, compassion.’’
Valerie's openness to spirituality began around the age of 9, when her father introduced her to meditation. However, it is far from love at first sight that has united her to yoga. It was rather through the different styles practiced that she understood the physical, psychological and spiritual benefits that the practice could bring her. It is with the desire to deepen her knowledge, to better understand the relationship between the different bodies and to share her learning that she turned to the teaching of yoga in 2015. Trained with 300h of Hatha yoga at Satyam and 25h of SUP yoga, she likes to add a touch of humor to her classes, because according to her, nothing should be taken too seriously.
Rachel teaches yoga to spread the love of life through the experience of the body. She completed her 380-hour training in Hatha and Vinyasa at Yoga Sangha in Montreal with Yoagacharya Sylvie Tremblay. Rachel is also studying osteopathy at the Collège d’Études Ostéopathiques de Montréal, enabling her to increase the understanding of the anatomy, biomechanic and physiology of the human body. She guides creative sequences in a regenerative manner.
Her mission is to “facilitate” people to regain their inner power, to create space through the breath to be willing to take up all the space that belongs to them. To better settle in “Self” while creating movement to live a healthy and adaptative life.

Cindy discovered the virtues of yoga at the opening of the Yoga Club and knew quickly that she wanted to deepen her knowledge of the lifestyle related to this practice. She decided to do her Yoga Yoga training in Montreal with Hali Love from the Multi Style Yoga Institute, followed by a private retreat in Costa Rica to consolidate her learning about Yoga and herself. Desiring to always deepen her knowledge, Cindy seizes every opportunity to diversify her teaching: Ayurveda, Reiki, various workshops, etc. Since Yoga has helped her greatly in more difficult times of her life, Cindy now wants to share her passion with others, and make them realize the powerful tool that is Yoga. In her classes, she encourages authenticity, love of oneself and one’s body, and above all, pleasure.
As an actress, director and improv comedian, Mélanie, who is a Scorpio with Virgo rising, has found yoga to be the glue that holds together all aspects of her being. Yoga allows her to maintain her strength and endurance, all the while feeding her love of high intensity training and developing her softness, flexibility and vulnerability. Through yoga she found the balance and spirituality she had been looking for, which prompted her to train in yoga and barre with Hali Love of Multi-Style Yoga. Just like in theatre, she enjoys guiding her students through their own quest for connection, pushing them to excel and even to surprise themselves. Teaching is a way for Mélanie to establish a connection with others and share her energy.
Marie-Frédérique first took an interest in yoga mainly for its physical benefits. She then discovered yoga to be so much more than a physical activity for developing strength and flexibility. In fact, yoga had opened the door to a whole new world: her inner self and spirituality. For as long as she can remember, she has been fascinated by the infinite potential residing in each individual and believes that the best way to attain it is to find balance between the body and mind. She sees her yoga practice as the path to a synergy between the physical and mental bodies. Marie-Frédérique has completed various yoga trainings, including Vinyasa Yoga, Yin Yoga and Vijnana Yoga. In the spring of 2018, she joined the Ordre des acupuncteurs du Québec. Teaching yoga allows her to pass on the numerous tools she’s acquired along the way, on her personal path. She aims to guide those wishing to develop both their inner and outer strength, by respecting the breath and movement. Her goal is to stimulate and inspire her students through the discovery of new possibilities, to challenge the best of their abilities, always within the boundaries of respect and self-love.
In the beginning, yoga was a way for Alexandrine to keep fit and learn relaxation techniques. Setting foot inside the Yoga Club two years ago was a pivotal moment of great change, for she understood all the magic that could come out of yoga. Her practice helped her integrate some balance into her everyday life, thanks to the combination between the power of her intentions and thoughts with the consciousness of her personal energy, which allows her to be the best version of herself she's ever known. It soon became clear to her that she had to share that magic with others. Passionate about the human body, she graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Sexology, and in 2018, she completed her yoga teacher training at the Yoga Club with Hali Love of Multi Style Yoga International. Her goal is to enable others to surpass themselves and believe in their abilities by showing them their limits so that they can reach their full potential.
Maïté has always been fascinated by the human body; she began her career in alternative health in 2007, completing a certification in Swedish massage at the Guijek School in Montreal. She is particularly interested in the relationship between the body’s composition and its emotional dimension, which motivates her to deepen her understanding of both global and energetical approaches. She continuously improves her knowledge through several Yoga, Reiki and massage therapy courses, including Lomi Lomi massage and Fasciatherapy. She has completed two teacher trainings: a 300-hour training in British Columbia in 2011 and a 200-hour at the Yoga Club with Hali Love just this year. Her goal is to provide others with tools to help them in their healing by using different alternative techniques so that they may reconnect with their full potential. She is presently training to become an Ayurvedic therapist at L’espace Ayurveda in Montreal.
As a marathon runner and cooking aficionado advocating healthy habits, Anne-Sophie quickly realized how important it was for her to incorporate yoga into her daily routine.
