Chantale came to yoga through her career in fitness and passion for everything wellness. As a fitness leader with decades of experience motivating and inspiring others to be their best, yoga first showed up as “the latest fitness trend”. …but soon became much more and Chantale’s truest passion.

 “Yoga is so much more than the just the postures…it is truly the portal to one’s self-expression and self-realization. Yoga offers us the opportunity to honestly look inward, to pause, to reflect and to shift our energies through movement.”

Chantale brings compassion, inspiration and a touch of humour to her teaching and is “honoured” to hold space for her students’ energetic expansion, as well as their physical accomplishments. Her favourite class formats include Freedom Flow, Yin and Power Vinyasa. She meets students where they are, on and off the mat and is continuously inspired by the energy and community of the yoga experience.

Always a student, Chantale is continually expanding her knowledge through retreats, workshops and continuing education and loves sharing these learnings.

“I am truly honoured to be a part of the Live with Spirit faculty.  I am always delighted and inspired by the students and the experience.  Namaste.”

Studied with: Sean Corne, Rod Stryker, Sadie Nardini, Ashley Turner, Bo Forbes

Baron Baptiste, and more…

 

 

 

 

Hugh Peacock

Hugh has been teaching yoga of awareness since 2004 in the Innerquest tradition of Maureen Daigle, a Kripalu and Phoenix Rising graduate. 

He has been drawn to the Sanskrit language for several reasons: Its syllabic potential to set up a resonance of interiority, a pathway to inner awareness; The universality of the names of postures wherever one goes to practice; Access to the great sources of yoga thought and teaching, especially the Gita (long a) and its enormous influence on Western thought and literature, and his enjoyment and appreciation of kirtan (chant and response). 

Hugh joins the Live With Spirit Yoga Teacher training faculty as our Sanskrit teacher.

Michelle Ho - Anatomy Teacher

Michelle Ho is a registered nurse, mother of twin ten year olds and has been practicing yoga since the age of 13, though she just called it exercises back then. The body, as we know, is much more than a sum of its parts; it incorporates multiple layers of tissue, bone, organs, breath, energy and spirituality. Michelle sees yoga as a wonderful complement to her nursing practice, and vice versa. Yoga is increasingly recognized in western medical society as an effective treatment for strengthening healthy bodies and minds or restoring people from illness or injury. It truly is for everyone, and Michelle has personally experienced the transformative effects of regular yoga practice on her whole self. It is with this belief that she enjoys sharing her practice with other yoga practitioners. 

Her official yoga journey towards teaching began when she took her first class in 2010 and later made one of the best decisions of her life. She completed Live with Spirit yoga teacher training in 2015 and began her teaching practice at that time. She enjoys teaching Hatha style as well as power yoga, vinyasa flows, and restorative yin styles. She believes that being a good teacher is supported by being a student and continuing to learn from other teachers as well as self study. Yoga is a never ending journey, just like life. Yoga has been life changing, provided her with love and peace and she wants to share this life altering practice with the rest of the world.
