As a forever student of movement Sylvie combines her love and study of all types of movement with a natural ability to be inclusive, compassionate, and honest. Sylvie strives to empower her students while encouraging them to try new things, be willing to fail (failure is essential for learning!), smile and then try again. After being diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder in 2013, Sylvie realized the importance of moving her body in order to improve her overall quality of life. She moves to live and lives to move.
She is a ERYT-500 and has taught thousands of hours of both group and 1-on-1 yoga and movement sessions. She specializes in mobility, gaining and maintaining active ranges of motion, and preparing the body to take on all the movements life can throw our way. She has a Ph.D. in Science Education, a masters in both Science Education and Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and was an internationally competitive synchronized skater. She is married with two kids (ages 9 and 20 months!).
