Elodie Vernier

Elodie is a French teacher of several movement and fitness class styles. She is passionate about dance and personal development techniques of the body and mind.
 

She discovered the joy of movement many years ago ... vibrating from the oriental to the ragga, through indy, flamenco, tango, cabaret, .. and many more styles.

 

After 3 years in semi-professional dance troupes, she felt the need to change the way she shares her passion with others and she turned to the job of fitness instructor.

 

Curious about everything, having graduated 9 years ago, she has taught many practices, such as Dance, Fitness, muscle strengthening in all its forms, as well as courses combining Yoga techniques, Tai-chi, Qi Gong, Barre au Sol (Floor Barre), Pilates, Stretching, and more.

 

Her courses are rich in meaning and have a beautiful energy. She values listening to her students and loves to create an inclusive environment for all who attend. 

 

In recent years, she has been keen to offer courses specifically targeting body awareness and movement awareness by combining relaxation techniques to promote both physical and mental well-being. When she discovered the Nia and the 'Moving to heal', - It was a real revelation! She loves how it combines of the pleasure of dance with the techniques of body consciousness with the focus on 'letting go' instead of getting the moves right.

 

Elodie felt great motivation to share this wonderful experience of freedom of Being. She received her certification 2 years ago and has been joyously teaching ever since. 



Elodie Vernier instructs the following:
  • Barre au Sol (Floor Barre)
  • Stretch and strengthen your muscles the way dancers do in this conditioning class featuring floor-based ballet training exercises (a mat or a towel is strongly recommended). The class is practiced from seated and prone postures (lying on the stomach), but it certainly won't compromise on challenge and efficiency!
     
     
    The combined elements of ballet, Pilates, and yoga form a challenging and engaging workout which will work your legs, hips, glutes, and core in an efficient and dynamic way. The focus is on toning, increasing flexibility, and increasing alignment awareness whilst developing heightened coordination and muscle control.
     
     
    As the class is practiced on the floor, you'll get a low-impact workout that makes for a very fluid practice. All this is combined with vibrant, upbeat music that will keep you motivated to keep working hard until the very end of the class.
