What is this experience that we call life? As far as I can remember, this question has fascinated me and connected my different interests. Among other things, it has brought me to study agriculture and environment at McGill, to better understand nature and the world we inhabit and share. It also led me to learn music, an expression of the soul, studying accordion and electroacoustic composition. Then, in a more philosophical and spiritual way, it guided me to meditation and yoga. I was introduced to Ashtanga yoga in 2009 by Tara Lutchman and the practice immediately captured me. I then studied with Allison Ulan, Jessie Goldberg, Eugene Poku and Jeanne Mudie. I am currently studying shiatsu, which, combined with vipassana meditation, is influencing and colouring my practice and my teaching. My approach is therapeutic and humane, with particular attention to the different areas of our health (physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual), to mindfulness, autonomy, and fun!


Curious, open to the new and with a very colorful personality, Marie-Michele has had a history for the most eclectic. Her thirst for knowledge and love of adventure led her to follow enthusiastically all detours and paths through life, and it was only natural, over her many professional and personal experiences, that she decided to invest her life and passion in the practice of yoga.

While studying in London, the experience of yoga was the revelation! And as in all aspects of her life, Marie-Michele launched fully into this new passion. In 2009, she studied in Rishikesh, India, yoga sacred city, to follow her Mastership Teacher Training with Vivek B. Gaur. Back in Quebec, Marie-Michele began teaching, first privately, and then developed a yoga program for seniors at the community center in her neighborhood.

She continues to diversify her practice of yoga teaching in various studios in Montreal, in addition to building a course in collaboration with a postural chiropractic clinic.
