Chantale first discovered yoga in 1996 while attending Studio 58 professional theatre school in Vancouver. After her first sun salutation she was hooked and has been an avid practitioner ever since. She primarily used it as a tool to help strengthen and help her lower back pain that she had had since she was very young as well as a means to warm up the body prior to performing on stage. It was a great way to get connected to the breath and to keep grounded and relaxed while acting. She soon realized that the effects ran much deeper than the physical. After many years of wanting to take the teacher training, she graduated in the spring of 2016 from the Upward Dog Yoga Teacher Certification with Roxanne Joly. She has also studied many times with Rod Stryker of ParaYoga. Yoga has been there at those precarious times and has kept her balanced and centred. Chantale's goal is to bring balance and happiness to those that she meets from holistic hatha practices.
Chantale Plante instructs the following:
This is a class that will help you restore your blood circulation without making you tired. Slow flow is a class where you transition from one asana to the next with enough time to get all the benefit of each of them, to stretch your muscles but at the same time there is enough effort to warm you up and to calm your mind. You will be ready to face the challenges of the rest of your day
