Hi, I’m Carine. I believe in life long learning, here I share some musings of what I’m currently curious about, may it be about the body, how the mind works, and how it all intertwines marvelously.
My Past & Influences:
I have a B.A. in Criminology from U of A, studied acupuncture in Hong Kong, began my yoga journey in 1998. I am certified as CYA-E-RYT 350 (Canadian Yoga Alliance-Experienced -Registered Yoga Teacher), a certified pilates and barre belle teacher and I’m a reiki master. I hold certifications in Restorative, Yin, Hot, Prenatal, Kids, and Ayurveda Yoga the Madhuri Method.
I am highly influenced by Vijnana yoga, the Feldenkrais method, and the tensegrity model sharing the therapeutic sense of joints floating in perfect tension and compression.
I share my knowledge of bio-tensegrity in tangible ways, and my classes focus on calming the nervous system and may occasionally incorporate massage balls to aid in proprioception and fascial release.
I am a legacy Lululemon ambassador of Richmond, B.C. I’ve been a guest teacher at the Semperviva 95 hour kids teacher training, and was voted one of the Best Yoga Teacher of Richmond in 2019 and 2022.
Pranayama carried me through two natural childbirths – two awesome boys/young men that inspired me to teach yoga.
