Crystal Tree Yoga Inc.
Studio Director, Owner
Co-Founder of Sakalya Yoga
Sakalya Yoga Lead Teacher
Through the merging of her western and eastern yoga trainings and practices, Sylvie has developed a very balanced, holistic and authentic style of teaching. Her Sakalya Yoga classes go deep into ancient, traditional Yogic practices delivered in a way that is relevant for the modern students and her sessions are weaved with creativity, fluidity and with conscious, mindful attention to proper alignment. Classes are unique, powerful and enlivening; depending on the focus of a class, students can experience both lightness and depth while exploring subtle and/or explosive energies, awakening to their full potential.
"I am a teacher. My passion is teaching yoga.
As a yoga teacher, I hold space for students, inviting them to arrive completely, live fully and be wholeheartedly present. I guide them to the understanding that there is so much more to yoga than the physical postures that tend to be the main focus of most of our classes here in the western part of the world. Together we grow, evolve and transcend through the holistic practice of Asana, Pranayama, Kriya, Mudras, Mantra, movement, ancient timeless wisdom and Meditation. We explore the depth of all of these elements to create shifts within the body, mind and spirit.
With my role as Studio Director with Crystal Tree Yoga, I look forward to bringing authentic Yogic offerings to our students and to our community. It is my observation over the years that what people are really craving is depth and that there is a real need for coming back to the ancient roots of this timeless and transformative practice. Yoga has stood the test of time (without much alteration until recent years) for a reason. For thousands of years, the Yogic teachings have been respected and practiced with deep devotion and heart felt reverence. To be initiated in these practices is to be touched by grace; I am committed to moving from this place of deep gratitude and respect, honoring these traditions and teachings.”
