About Me

My yoga story

Teaching yoga has filled my heart with a profound sense of happiness since 2012. Since then I have accumulated over 1,000 hours of accredited yoga teacher training. I teach my classes with love and attentive care. I believe in personalized classes and in a trusting relationship between teacher and student. Since I started teaching yoga, I have had the opportunity to work with healthy people, pregnant women, kids, the elderly, those with mental illness and also other yoga teachers in training.


I was initiated into yoga and meditation at the age of thirteen, but I committed myself to it four years later, truly falling in love with this ancient practice. It was a difficult time in my life and yoga became a refuge for me, and it remains one to this day. Yoga offered me the key to health and serenity. To know more about how yoga helped me, I invite you take a look at this interview made by a dear friend of mine.


During my second trip to India, the daughter of my late teacher, Swami Shyam, gave me the name Darshika, which means the one who shows the light of the Self or shows the path to the Self. It was a great honour to receive this name, as it connects me to the nature of my dharma or path of life, which is to accompany others on the yogic journey.


I am French Canadian and originally from Montreal. Coming to live by the ocean is a dream come true, and I look forward to being a valuable addition to the town of St. John's.
