Ashleigh Bellefontaine

Certified Yoga Instructor

Born and raised in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia Ashleigh’s yoga journey began in a hot room 8 years ago in Halifax. She was attending Saint Mary’s University playing varsity sports (soccer), and needed something that would help her body recover after years of physical stress. Upon walking into a newly developed studio, with no prior yoga experience, she became addicted to the practice after her first breath and her first drip of sweat.

Ashleigh continued to develop her practice for a few years, always knowing that one day she would be teaching the very same practice that she loved so much. After University Ashleigh took some time off to teach English in Korea for a year but upon her return to Dartmouth she found herself back in the yoga studio the day after she landed back in Canada. A few months later she was on a plane traveling to Brazil to take part in a 500hr 1 month intensive Yoga Training with Moksha Yoga in January 2011.

The experiences, the friends, and the memories learned while on this trip are unexplainable and life changing. Ashleigh has been lucky enough to teach in a variety of studios throughout Canada including studios in Halifax, Dartmouth, Peterborough, Vancouver, and now in Fort McMurray where she has been teaching Hatha, Hatha Flow, Vinyasa Flow, and Yin.She strongly believes that yoga changes thoughts, changes bodies, and changes each and everyone’s world.
