Friday, June 21 : NATURE YOGA session in conjunction with the summer solstice

On Friday, June 21, in celebration of International Yoga Day and of the arrival of the summer solstice, members of the public are invited to the second free yoga session on Île Saint-Bernard in Châteauguay, near the old windmill. With a magnificent view of Lake Saint-Louis and the most beautiful sunsets in the region, we are hoping that many participants will come out to enjoy a memorable evening! 

Participants, who are invited to bring their yoga mat (or beach towel), will be guided by a passionate teacher, Mélissa Vaillancourt (SUP SHOP – YOGA DE L’ÎLE). For the occasion, some collaborators will add an artistic touch to the evening: the singer, storyteller and slammer Mathieu Lippé, yoga practitioner and nature lover, and another guest teacher, Marie-Claude Ringuette, who will add her magic touch with mantras and original poses. 

During this yoga in nature session, donations will be collected for Héritage Saint-Bernard’s nature conservation mission. To encourage people to contribute, a $10 donation will give you the chance to win one of the door prizes offered by the event’s partners. The Manoir d’Youville team will also make smoothies for the participants in addition to holding an open house so that people can satisfy their curiosity and have a look around at the hotel! 

The initiator of the event, Mélissa Vaillancourt, is as enthusiastic about yoga as she is about nature. Her yoga sessions on Île Saint-Bernard, her SUP Yoga course on Lake Saint-Louis and her courses and retreats at the Manoir D'Youville all give participants a rich connection with nature and the living world. She draws her inspiration from protecting nature.

EVENT SCHEDULE:

  • 6:45 p.m. to 7:15 p.m.: Welcome and placement of participants;
  • 7:15 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.: nature yoga session;
  • 8:30 p.m. to 8:45 p.m.: a few words at the end and drawings.

In the event of poor weather, the event will be cancelled – Follow us on social media! 

The event is made possible through the collaboration of several partners: SUP SHOP, the Manoir D’Youville, Héritage Saint-Bernard, Yoga Sangha and the Ville de Châteauguay.
