Yoga with Coco: Virtual classes - Mon/Wed/Fri @ 12 oon - 1:00pm

Email camprec@uwindsor.ca to be added to the Live Teams Meeting to participate

Instructor:

Nicole Daignault ("Coco") spent the formative years of her yoga practice inspired by oceans, massive trees, pyramids and wanderlust. Eventually her travels took her to India in 1999, where she did her Yoga Teacher Training under the guidance of Integral Yoga Master Sunil Kumar, of the Yoga Training Center. From chanting and meditating in monasteries in Nepal, through Shamanic journeys in Thailand, to Five Rhythms Ecstatic Dance on the West Coast of the US, Coco has developed a radical self practice which has kept her calm, strong, and capable despite varying degrees of discomfort due to scoliosis. Helping others reduce pain through physical and mental awareness has been Coco's passion throughout her inspired career. With training also in Myomassology and Thai Massage, Coco is considered to have great expertise with which she offers her students individual guidance based on their unique needs and abilities.
