WHO WE ARE
VIVA: We are a team of Yoga Instructors, Reiki Teachers & Wellness Professionals & Coaches. We guide sessions programs live online, in person (see viva.passion.do for locations). We also guide programs at different institutions.
Our mission is to promote overall well-being and personal growth to our participants. We understand how living day-to-day life in our society can be very stressful (always being on the go) and our self-care is usually last on the “to-do list”. Living a balanced and harmonious life in a concrete jungle isn’t impossible and we have the tools to show you how!
This is how we do it:
Our programs, classes , workshops & trainings are designed with the objective of creating wellness from the inside out. By this, we mean that we offer more than simply physical postures & breathing techniques. We offer tools and activities that will plant seeds for optimal health, in the present and long term.
Teaching the youth... Meditation vs. Detention:
VIVA's team of yoga teachers are working together to guide meditation programs in high schools in Montreal,Qc. A new approach to replace the traditional after school detention, where students are not being punished but rather are taught breathwork and meditation tools to help with concentration as well as manage anxiety and stress, and improve overall wellbeing.
VIVA guides wellness activities at elementary schools, such as mindful movement & mindful breathing.
Our team of teachers guides yoga & meditation classes at different centres in Montreal, as part of the patients recovery program.
