About Inspired Living Yoga
Practices include asanas (yoga postures), pranayamas (breathing techniques/awareness) and reflections to enhance strength, energy, flexibility, focus, ease, vitality and inspiration; visualizations, specific points of focus, affirmations and mantras nurture the mind-body connection and refine our relationship with our subtle body.
How Often Should You Practice?
Long term consistency is more valuable than short term intensity.
Once a week over a long period of time has more to offer than four times a week over a short period of time.
Be honest with your starting point and set yourself up for success!
What You Need
Yoga mat, one block, one strap and a meditation cushion. If you don't have these you can use books, scarfs...
I will not be playing music but I encourage you to set your space as you like. Mantras, incense...
These classes are offered to experienced practitioners. They are not for beginners. Modify and adapt as you need
All classes are offered through zoom. If you need guidance, reach out. I am here.
"I am fully converted to Zoom yoga with Sylvie! The audio and video quality have been excellent, and best of all, I have Sylvie and an awesome community of yogis practicing with me in my home on a regular basis. Also, online classes mean no commute to the studio, which means I can fit in more classes each week! And if I miss a class, I can always watch the video recording later - so convenient!"
“Virtual yoga with Inspired Living with Sylvie is uplifting and wonderful yoga classes were I get to experience the benefits of a well-rounded focused yoga routine at my own pace with a very knowledgeable teacher, all of this from the comfort of my home while still feeling a sense of yoga community. These sessions have helped deepen my own practice and my understanding of yoga philosophy. At the same time, they have helped me stay healthy in body, mind and spirit within the turbulent times we are living. I definitely recommend the Inspired Living virtual yoga! Thank you Sylvie!”
"I love these classes. Although we are practicing at a distance, we can practice as a community in real time. Sylvie is able to reach beyond the zoom platform and expertly guide us through a carefully planned series of asanas which are familiar yet varied and challenging while still accessible. This class makes it possible for me to attend live classes without worrying about rush hour traffic or parking. It is just wonderful and I am really grateful for the opportunity."
"Sylvie is an incredible teacher, and her online classes on Zoom have been life-changing! I am a professional violinist, and practicing yoga with Sylvie has helped me maintain my physical health and avoid injury. Sylvie offers varying asanas that allow for students of different levels to choose a pace and pose that best suits their needs. Her wealth of knowledge and experience is extraordinary, and she inspires us (her students) in many ways: through the yoga practice, addressing our emotional and physical well-being, through weekly inspirational writings and more. I highly recommend Sylvie’s classes on Zoom!"
" Sylvie's virtual classes are perfect for yoga practitioners who want to grow and maintain their individual yoga practice in a time of uncertainty, isolation and lockdowns. In particular, I have very much appreciated the variety of Sylvie's yoga offerings. On any one day, I never know what practice will best serve me. I love being able to choose the type of class I want to do at the time of day that best suits me. I feel inspired and connected with the group energy - especially on those days when getting on the mat is a challenge. Knowing that Sylvie's classes are always available is a huge inspiration and comfort to me."
"After having practiced yoga for nearly 3 decades, I can confidently say that Sylvie’s classes are exceptional. Sylvie is an authentic, passionate, knowledgeable instructor who radiates wisdom, compassion, love and humility. Her ability to motivate and inspire is unparalleled and her passion for yoga, legendary.
Sylvie’s instructions are clear and detailed, explaining the mechanics of the move, the purpose of the poses and the benefits they provide. She offers alternatives so all can safely enjoy each move regardless of ability or where on their yoga journey they are. Complementing traditional yoga, Sylvie also weaves concepts from Ayurveda, tapping, energy work and mantra meditation into the classes.
Importantly, I learned about the value of establishing stability in breathing and movement before striving for more flexibility. Being one to push myself hard, the suggestion that at times “less is more” has helped make my practice more enjoyable and less prone to injury. Finding balance and grounding has become easier both on and off the matt since studying with Sylvie.
Online yoga with Sylvie has become one of the highlights of my day, something I look forward to without fail. Each class fills me with energy, calm and a sense of being grounded. I can’t recommend them enough!"
"Having practiced yoga with Sylvie for over 15 years now, I am one of her greatest fans. Her extensive knowledge, expertise, dedication and patience truly exceed our expectations. I have travelled across Canada for work and tried many classes over the years, but there is no teacher that comes close to Sylvie Gouin.
The pandemic taught us the importance of virtual yoga and a majority of us won’t stop with the virtual practice. The quality of production of Sylvie’s classes is excellent. Her attention to detail and being able to explain options for those of us who have injuries or strained muscles is outstanding. I’ve attended Sylvie’s workshops and seminars and enjoyed them immensely.
As the icing on the cake, Sylvie is able to nurture a wonderful community spirit virtually by giving us a few minutes prior to class start to chat and “connect” with our yoga friends. I have nothing but sincere gratitude and appreciation and feel most fortunate to be part of this community…."
