After many years as a dedicated yoga student, Chantal was inspired to become an instructor when she realized how meaningful teachers were to her own yoga journey. She studied the Ashtanga discipline with the highly respected Mark Darby, a student of Pattabhi Jois, the father of Ashtanga Yoga. Her teacher’s dedication to the tradition of the practice instilled in her the commitment to improve each student’s physical alignment through a solid foundation and a deep breathing technique called Ujjayi, the victorious breath.
In her quest to become a well-balanced teacher, Chantal complemented her training with the restorative style of Yin Yoga. With a background in dance, she possesses a deep understanding of the physical anatomy and the body in motion. Chantal believes the body is a temple and she will help you honor it with every class she teaches.
