Dominique Gauthier (Kamras)

Personal Trainer & Registered Yoga Teacher

Hello and Welcome, I am so glad you are here!

My name is Dominique. As a Personal Trainer and Registered Yoga Teacher, I help women of all ages, pregnant and current moms to feel more at home in their bodies, to feel strong and mobile, and to live their life they way they want to live it. Providing individualized attention through Private and Small Group settings specializing in Core and Pelvic Floor Retraining.

Becoming a mom for the first time, as much as I was prepared for the physical changes of pregnancy, I was not prepared for the changes postnatally. I felt like a stranger in my own body. I felt like the shadow of my former self. I felt alone in my struggles and I never wanted anyone to ever feel like that.

I had knowledge of yoga and fitness having been teacher and trainer since 2010, but I felt like none of that was working in my new body, something was missing. I started training to specialize in Prenatal and Postnatal populations which led to my passion for Core and Pelvic Health.

I opened Body Mind Yoga in London (Lambeth), Ontario as a Private Yoga Studio offering some Small Group Classes to bring some of the individualized attention of Private Sessions at an affordable price - customizing my classes to my students individual needs. Body Mind Yoga has since evolved to offer Personal Training as well.

Personal Training, Private Yoga Sessions and a personalized approach to Small Group Classes are what make Body Mind Yoga unique.

Emotionoga
Metabolizing emotion through breath and movement.
A combination of Hatha Yoga, Kundalini Yoga and Qigong created by Jocelyn Brock; Emotionoga explores the possibility of opening out emotions that are stored within our organs. Practices are geared toward one of five major organs of the body that could be harbouring disease on account of negatively stored emotions within. The goal is to convert these negative emotions to positive emotions that allow us to release any negative feelings toward an experience or event; an example being the conversion of the post natal emotion of fear to the pre natal emotion of awe (kidneys). When we are able to bring the positive (pre natal) emotion to the organ, the organ can function as it should with more ease. The aim is not only to create a greater sense of emotional well being, but to also create a greater sense of physical well being.
By coming into a state of emotional balance, our organs will begin to heal and will have the opportunity to remain healthy and strong.


Yin Yoga
Yin is a style of yoga that is geared toward the connective tissues of the body (tendons, ligaments and fascia) with the purpose of improving flexibility, especially as we age. By finding the edge in a pose and holding on to the feeling of light to moderate stress for longer periods of time (upward of 3minutes) we are able to improve circulation in our joints and initiate change towards an improved functional lifestyle.For best results use with Yang styles of yoga (the promote strength by holding the poses for shorter periods of time).

Qigong Level 1
Qigong is the cultivation of Life Force Energy that flows through everything in the Universe. With the use of breath, movement and mental focus you can find a deeper awareness of your breath, body, self and the environment around you by acquiring more Qi (Chi) and circulating it through your body. Qigong has been a tool used for centuries for self healing, cleansing and developing strength.


Bars by Access Consciousness
This practice involves 32 Bars of energy that run through your head that store thoughts, beliefs, ideas and attitudes that you have ever had about anything in your life. There are bars for Healing, Body Image, Control, Awareness, Sex, Power, Aging, Money, Creativity and more. Each thought, belief or idea can limit you in your day to day life- like a road block (or the idea of self fulfilling prophecies). The Bars will clear the points that are no longer serving you in order to allow the receiving of new things to come. Think about your mind like a computer, when you delete a file it goes into the Recycle Bin- you must delve a little deeper to eliminate the file or else there will be traces of it remaining that can be retrieved. The Bars acts as the "Empty Recycle Bin" button.
