Bio • Philosophy • Commitment
Born and raised in Montreal, Ariane’s love for self-development and wellbeing took her into the role of a teacher at a young age. She completed her degree in Eastern Religions and Professional Writing, and has been working as a certified RYT (registered Yoga teacher), Medical Qi Gong instructor, Meditation instructor, Massage Therapist and Public speaker for over ten years.
Having suffered from an early age with anxiety and depression, Ariane took an interest in the field of holistic health and wellbeing to find relief. Learning different forms of mindfulness practices helped her recover and attain a greater sense of wellbeing, as well as a solid healthy lifestyle.
She has worked privately with hundreds of clients and has taught well over 1000 hours of group classes. She studied and further developed her work in Costa Rica, Mexico and India, and currently works globally with private clients online. She is also one of the newest Yoga teachers at the beautiful Ashtanga Yoga Victoria downtown studio.
A true eco-adventurer at heart, Ariane is an advocate for minimizing waste and preserving the natural environment. Her goal is to be plastic free by 2020 and shares her process on social media with her followers. Also a lover of big trees, she promotes the invaluable work of her dear friends in the Ancient Forest Alliance who work hard to establish conservation laws for remaining old growth on Vancouver Island.
She spends her time cultivating her daily practice of Ashtanga Yoga, meditation and breathwork, developing the online forum The Inward Path, and forever exploring the endless beauty of Vancouver Island with her canine side kick Bella Coola.
