COLETTE ST. PIERRE, 500 YTT
At 20 years old I found yoga and after two years of practice and taking workshops I found myself teaching at the local “Y” and fitness centres, schools and the staff at the local hospital..Eventually I opened my own yoga studio...At 72 years old I’m so thankful I can still teach, it gives me so much joy and gratitude after each and every class to share my yoga with my fellow students..
Shannon has been practicing yoga for 15+ years and is certified in both the Yin and Yang traditions. Her practice and teaching is greatly influenced by the Kripalu lineage, Paul Grilley and her own teacher, Stephanie Calhoun. No two bodies are the same and therefore no two people will look the same in a yoga pose. "We need to make the pose serve the practitioner. Not the other way around."

Carol rediscovered yoga eight years ago when she joined Laluna Yoga, but she was introduced to yoga for the first time in her teens while she was still dancing competitively, to increase her flexibility and reduce stress. She appreciated Laluna's philosophy and the friendships she developed at the studio. "Laluna isn't just about the classes you attend. It's a community," she says.
Colette St. Pierre has not been a long term yoga practitioner but upon retiring a few years ago she decided to follow her passions. Travelling came ﬁrst followed quickly by an interest in the world of yoga. Thinking she would combine the two she decide to do her 500 hour Yoga Teachers Training in the birth place of the art; Rishikesh, India. She not only fell in love with India but also with her people and her true love affair with yoga took root in the foothill of the Himalayans.
