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 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 Best of Richmond 2019.
Pranayama carried me through two natural childbirths – two awesome boys/young men that inspired me to teach yoga.
