Sade initially trained in the ashtanga vinyasa tradition and went on to further study other lineages such as Iyengar , hatha, and vipassana meditation. This can be seen in her classes through a diverse way of intelligent and mindful movement.

Her restorative classes are Iyengar based infused with Buddhist meditation techniques with long held restoring poses calming the central nervous system and monkey mind!

Everything is in constant change and yoga is a way of living, guiding us through this. A practice of love.

Sade is currently not teaching any regular classes with us. 
Are you looking for a peaceful practice to bring you into a deep sense of unity with your body? Would you prefer a graceful opportunity to move and breathe? If so, please come join this class where the focus will be on steadily finding deep flexibility, particularly in the low back, hips and hamstrings, often our tightest spots. We will take significant time in each posture, and move at an effortless, relaxed pace.

This class is taught in English, most of our teachers do speak some French so don't hesitate to ask for help understanding.
