Lean In

Au Tournant du Coeur
October 4th-6th 2019


Unlock your inner potential  

As humans we tend to lean into comfort and what feels good, shying away from the uncomfortable sensations. When we lean into our edges, these areas of discomfort, we give ourselves the opportunity to discover our power, strengths, abilities, and limits.

These edges, shadows and hidden areas are where the magic is, where we find the little gifts that allow us to expand, grow, unravel and ultimately shift and change.

If we limit ourselves to what is comfortable, we risk getting stuck and missing out on our true magnitude and all the yumminess that discomfort brings us. 

Join me for an entire weekend filled with opportunities to LEAN IN to all of your edges.

 * All practices are open to all levels from beginners to more advanced yogis.


What To Expect


Morning Meditation
Vipassana inspired meditations designed to tune into breath and body sensations. Meditation gives you the chance to create space in between your thoughts. It is common to have a busy mind so giving yourself moments to slow down will have transformative effects in your daily life.


Powerful Morning Vinyasa Practices
The morning classes will be designed to get you rooted and grounded in yourself. They will help you get solid in your foundation while leaning into your ALL of your edges.

Yin and Tonic Evening Classes
with massage therapist Shaunna Chagnon.

Both practices will help you improve flexibility, deeply relax the body, still the mind and balance the nervous system. The classes will also help develop compassion and understanding toward others and self.
