Within each moment is an opportunity to come home to yourself
Mandee Labelle, has been living in Nova Scotia since 2001, sharing the love of yoga, meditation, well-being, and the art of coming home.
I had been enjoying teaching yoga to communities for over 10 years, working with many people from all walks of life, when I first met my teacher in 2011. I had been already deep in the practice, and this was also long after completing a psychology degree, alongside much enjoyment, experimentation, study, and practice of different forms of Buddhism. When I met Francis Lucille, it was like everything came to life somehow. In answer to a question one day, he recommended that I “follow my enthusiasm”, and taking that to heart has brought me time and time again to his yoga and meditation retreats worldwide. The teachings of Francis Lucille, Jean Klein, and the love of truth are an intrinsic part of my offerings both online and in the weekly classes.
Yoga can be exercise, health and well-being, but also a doorway to deep calm and presence. Through this blend of Hatha and Raja yoga, Kashmiri Shaivism, and Advaita Vedanta we truly can get to the root of our tension and set ourselves free. Jean Klein was Francis’s teacher and studied from both Krishnamacharya and Dibianandapuri during his time in India. This yoga is a beautiful complement to those who have interest in Advaita Vedanta.
Dedicated student of yoga, life, psychology, energy, meditation, and consciousness, Mandee shares from her heart and delivers classes that suit anyone who is ready to pause–and realign with the truth within themselves. “Yoga is amazing. This wise and ancient practice offers a wide variety of methods to support healthy living and clarity of mind. It speaks to different people in different ways. The fundamental teaching of Yoga is to discover the ultimate wisdom within your own heart. The physical practice can be joyous and rejuvenating to all levels of ability. I like to create safe, open spaces for people to find what they are looking for.”
