Delphine started her yoga journey in 2012.

After a year filled with anxiety, uncertainty, and turmoil, she found refuge in meditation and yoga, a wonderful window into self-awareness that allowed her to dig deep and face the source of her dis-ease. She became quite involved in the world of yoga in Vancouver and saw a lot of similarities between dance and yoga. So much so that, in 2015, with the help of chiropractor and yoga teacher Genieve Burley, Delphine developed her own Yoga and Ballet workshops; a series of two-hour workshops based on developing awareness and welcoming strength and flexibility into your life. These workshops offered a safe space for people to explore where they put limitations on their bodies and mind, quiet their emotions and, most importantly, experience how wonderful it feels to set their wild hearts free.

In July 2016, she completed a 200hrs Yoga Teacher Training certification with Karma Teachers, under the tutelage of Kent Brun, Jolene Bayda, Troy Turi, and many others. Her understanding of yoga was thoroughly deepened. In her eyes, it reinforced its countless powers and helped her understand that yoga is much more than a simple body and mind exercise, it is a way of life. Yoga has opened Delphine’s eyes to the importance of this type of work in our fast-paced, modern society. The urgency of living is a wonderful quality to abide by, though not at the expense of compassion and human connection. Delphine believes that the key to true happiness lies behind the groundedness of oneself in each moment, being open and comfortable inside a world where we choose to connect with reality as it is, as opposed to the way we would like it to be.

She is grateful for yoga’s many teachings and for her ability to share them with her students.
