Yasodhara Yoga Montreal
We are a group of certified teachers and students in Montreal practicing in the tradition of Yasodhara Ashram, founded by Swami Sivananda Radha. Yasodhara spiritual practices help increase awareness, experience greater well-being and live in alignment with our ideals.
If you are in the Montreal area, you are welcome to contact us and join in the events listed below. We offer public events and workshops as well as a bi-weekly community class for people who have studied at Yasodhara Ashram and live in Montreal.
Sunday Satsang – Monthly
Satsang, translated from Sanskrit as “in the company of the wise”, is a time when we gather together as a community in devotion and prayer.
If you would like to join us for Satsang, please contact Trine Veiss Mikkelsen.
I am a Yasodhara Ashram certified teacher of Hatha, Dream & Kundalini Yoga since 2000 and of Hidden Language Hatha Yoga since 2022. Teaching, to me, is holding an open yet focused space for people to practice, reflect, and experience themselves in a clearer way.
I began study of classical yoga practice and philosophy Mumbai, India in 1996 and found my spiritual home, Yasodhara Ashram, two years later. I regularly return to the Ashram to recertify, go on retreat, and be with my son in spiritual community.
Being a parent and engaging in social change work are all part of my yoga. I am a proud member of the 2SLGTBQ+ community and aim to create yoga classes that are warm, safe, inclusive and healing for all bodies. In my work, I run Lumiere Consulting, providing strategy support to nonprofits working to make our communities more equitable, healthy and peaceful. In the past, I helped to grow organizations that addressed issues such as violence prevention, girls’ empowerment, affordable housing, and forest conservation. I was previously managing editor at ascent magazine, a journal of spiritual reflection and social action.
Originally from the west coast of BC, I have lived in Montreal since 2003. I speak English and French.

I am a Yasodhara Ashram certified teacher of Hatha Yoga, Hidden Language Hatha Yoga and Dream & Kundalini Yoga. Alongside teaching yoga I am also a photographer, a life coach and a parent.
I am originally from Denmark and have taught yoga for over 15 years in Denmark, England, USA and Canada.
I teach small and private classes from my home in Outremont, and I am also available for private classes in the comfort of your own home.
Alongside teaching, I am also deepening my studies of Yoga by taking a complete professional training program in Yoga Therapy. This is giving me the insight to work with therapeutic groups and private Yoga Therapy offering sessions to groups and individuals with specific needs and specific health challenges physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
