About Dominique

about

Dominique loves how she feels after a good yoga practice; grounded, present, open and soft at the same time. That’s what drew her into it 30 years ago, coming out of her first class, and feeling so good, she decided that day to go 3 times a week. She first trained in the Iyengar tradition for 10 years, which gave her a great foundation, then moved on to Anusara to learn a different approach, and finally did a teacher training with Annie Carpenter, who helped her refine her practice and enhance her qualities as a teacher. She is known for her genuine teaching style, great sequencing, clear instructions, and a down to earth way of being. She encourages people to move in a way which is safe, intelligent and meaningful. Her classes are dynamic and grounding. You can expect a certain intensity, grounded in an utmost softness of the heart, and supported by the breath and alignment of the body. You will breathe fully, sit still, sing, flow, focus, play, and relax. She has had a few injuries to deal with over the years and knows a lot about remedial yoga. She loves what Maty Ezraty said: “Keep in mind when you practice yoga, that you’re not practicing to improve yourself. You are perfect. The practice is there to help you know that.
