we're in this together...
Sophie Ann Dufresne, eCYT
It was love at first stretch. The very first time I held trikonasana something special happened. It was me, my hamstrings, my breath, my gaze – both inward and outward – and I felt completely at home in my body, possibly for the first time in my life. I knew that Yoga & I were meant to be together forever.
Over the years, I’ve had the opportunity to practice Yoga with many amazing teachers. The variety & exposure to different sources have informed me and lead me to refine my practice & my offerings towards a smart alignment based practice, infused with wisdom, a light heart & mild philosophy.
I started teaching Yoga in June of 2006, after starting my Teacher Training with Trinity Yoga. I completed my training in December of that same year and have been teaching full-time ever since.
I’m an eager learner and find joy in my ongoing study of Yoga. I have studied and taught prenatal & postnatal yoga, Yoga4Kids, Yoga Thrive (Therapeutic Yoga for Cancer Survivors), the science & application of Ayurveda in every day living; and am currently studying Adaptive & Restorative Yoga Therapy.
I am continually amazed at the myriad ways Yoga can be used and adapted to accommodate our needs over the course of a life-time: as we change, so does the practice. I am so grateful for the vastness of knowledge & wisdom at my disposal. I’m never bored – always seeking, learning and sharing Yoga from the heart
