YOGA

Yoga is a school of philosophy practiced in India since as early as the 3rd millennium BC. It is a discipline of the body and mind that includes a wide variety of exercises and techniques. It contains 8 branches, but the best known in the West is that of “Asana”; the physical postures. This branch has been commercialized as a physical exercise, however, it is in the grouping of its 8 branches that yoga produces its greatest results. In addition to its physical benefits, such as the relief of diseases, the reduction of stress, and the increased flexibility, yoga as a whole is a support tool for everyday life, a guide to greater wisdom and happiness.

Entraînement

Competence

There are a multitude of courses and certifications for teaching yoga. Most trainings vary between 200 and 500 hours. The curriculum usually includes courses in anatomy, yoga history, and Asana intensive workshops (postures). Each school sets its own standards. We make sure our teachers are trained enough to deliver the quality required at the Azzuan Center.

Karine Lefrançois

Energetic, determined and eager to learn, especially in all areas of health, well-being and the evolution of the individual on all its facets. For harmony and balance, nothing better than to perceive the human being in its entirety. Having practiced yoga for a long time, one could say that yoga is not only a way of blossoming and growing up, but it is also a great passion that I want to share, in order to share this complete science that nourish, open up, liberate, transform and heal all at once. At a very young age, my great sensitivity and desire to help led me to massage therapy. At that moment, I discovered a strong connection with myself and with energy, through feeling. Teaching and touching are a way for me to blossom and actualize myself.

DISCOMFORTS

The practice of yoga goes back several hundred years ago, and has survived until today for several reasons. It can be useful to ease certain discomforts, but it especially helps to prevent them! Yoga is a safe and accessible discipline when taught by a competent teacher, helping to avoid many daily discomforts, decreasing major risk factors for developing certain illnesses, all this by increasing flexibility, strenghtening and toning the muscles, improving breathing, energy and vitality, and maintaining a balanced metabolism. Avoiding discomforts has never been so enjoyable.

WELLNESS & OPTIMIZATION

The absence of discomfort or illness is not a sign of optimal health. Although this is a great start, everyone can benefit from greater energy, a quieter mind, better flexibility, increased tonicity, muscle relaxation, and more. This is what yoga has offered its participants for hundreds of years. You too can benefit from this ancestral knowledge to improve your physical and mental health!

SPORTS

Yoga is well known as a tool to increase muscle flexibility and all the benefits that follow. Few realize the impact this discipline can have on the ability to concentrate and calm the nervous system. It also helps eliminate metabolic waste from the body and revive the body’s systems that are overloaded. All this is very useful for the athletes!

CHILDREN

Obviously, yoga will have the same effects on children as on adults. However, many competences are not yet developed in children. For example, body awareness, coordination, concentration, stress management, self-confidence, and a sense of overcoming without being competitive are all aspects of development that yoga is involved in forging. Help your child get away from electronic devices while developing healthy lifestyle habits through yoga!

PERINATAL

The decision to have a child is not taken lightly, neither is the preparation for pregnancy. While several restrictions come with this period, yoga is often suggested and recommended. Why ? Because it is gentle, it prepares the body of the future mother, it avoids several discomforts related to this stage, it strengthens some key muscle groups that will even help during delivery, and finally, it facilitates recovery. The practice of prenatal yoga strengthens the mother-child bond even before the actual birth of the child, and allows the parents to get to know great professionals who may be useful later and for them, and for other moms … Simple & enjoyable!
