Your Teachers

Andrew Bathory is recognized for his playful, warm and creative approach to teaching. He is passionate about alignment-based yoga and movement practices and he integrates restorative principles, mindful strengthening, and breath work into his classes. Although his practices as both a yogi and musician have taken him around the globe, he has happily called Montreal home since 2011. These days, you can find Andrew at ELMNT Studio, a boutique spin, yoga, and movement space he co-founded in NDG.

Dawn Mauricio is a yoga and meditation teacher with a playful, dynamic, and centered approach. In addition to teaching yoga since 2006, she has been studying Insight Meditation since 2005. Dawn delivers an effective balance of clear, precise instruction and mental reflection. Dawn firmly believes that how we offer ourselves in practice reflects how we offer ourselves in life, inspiring her to find new ways to extend her practice beyond the yoga mat and meditation cushion - and encouraging her students to do the same.
