What graduates are saying:
“What I appreciated most about the Myofascial Yoga Institute of Canada is Christine’s expert way of creating a trauma sensitive environment for us as learners, as well as teaching us how to create the same environment in our yoga classes. Over the year that it took me to complete the program, I noticed how each student’s, as well as my own, true light was encouraged to shine. I hadn’t realized before how important creating safety in a group setting is to supporting personal growth. This was a gift! Having injured myself in yoga before, I also appreciated how much permission was given on a consistent basis to honour the body’s own limits, relieving any pressure to make a pose look a certain way. We were given permission to make the pose work for our body and to encourage our students to do the same. Being a Kinesiologist, I also really appreciated the focus on sequencing classes to support improving function in the body, rather than striving to reach a particular milestone within a pose. Exploring the world of fascia in more depth was also always mind blowing. Christine is talented in so many ways, from her expertise in myofascial release, her attention to creating a trauma informed environment to her practice of leadership from a female perspective, I got so much more out of my first 200 hour teacher training than I was expecting. It was a great experience!” — Kristen
“A truly authentic and all encompassing course, that exceeded my expectations. Christine really embodies so many of the qualities you would hope to find in a teacher, a practitioner and a fellow yogi. A fun, fully supported and safe environment for learning and exploring, I would highly recommend Christine, her school and course to anyone looking to deepen their knowledge of fascia, yoga and movement.” — Emer
