"Our true home is in the present moment. To live in the present moment is a miracle." – Thich Nhat Hanh.
Chantal did not intend to become a Yoga teacher, but when she was suffering from severe nerve pain and began practising Yoga daily, it literally changed her life. Yoga helped her to find freedom, joy, and strength when nothing else seemed to work. Since then, she developed a special interest in the therapeutic application of yoga and the natural self-healing properties of the body. It's through her journey of dealing with pain and what later turned to be a chronic neurological illness that she found her purpose in life: helping others to find, accept and embrace who they truly are. She left a corporate career behind to dedicate herself fully to helping others find freedom within themselves in spite of life's challenges.
Chantal loves teaching and helping others to connect with the truth of who they are. She sees Yoga as a path towards self-knowledge, self-acceptance, and self-expansion. In her classes, she creates a space where people feel safe, seen, challenged, and empowered. In her teaching, she emphasises the importance of being present and honouring where you are on your Yoga journey, while simultaneously encouraging you to get curious, open up to new experiences, and expand who you think you are. Her teaching style is positive, precise, and accessible. She teaches her students to come back to being in their bodies and to let go of their ‘armour’, in order to reconnect to their playful, messy, brave, vulnerable and 'perfectly imperfect' human side.
