Shantelle Durocher

Registered Yoga Teacher

I first started practicing yoga around 2009 out of curiosity. After my first few classes, I knew it would be something that would stay with me forever. Then while backpacking Australia in 2011, some friends asked if I would guide classes just for fun - so without any formal training I dove into teaching a handful of classes for the first time!

This path soon lead me to living in a meditation based ashram that opened my eyes to a completely different way of being. Learning through and with others who visited this place about energy work, Ayurveda, Yoga, Shamanism, deep soul work and so much more. After returning from my travels, I felt called to go deeper so I jumped on a plane and attended my 200hr YTT in Nicaragua in 2013 & started teaching shortly after. My partner and I decided to start a family shortly after so I dedicated a huge portion of my time to learning all about this new stage of life I was embarking on. I became certified in prenatal/couples/baby & me yoga in 2018, I attended my DONA birth Doula training and a Yoga for the Pelvic Floor course in 2019.

This love affair with yoga has lead me to some really amazing places both externally and internally, forever altering the lense I see the world with - in gratitude I bow to all that has unfolded in my life & to all that has yet to unfold.
