About The Teacher
About Daryl Vansier
Having been introduced to yoga as a child, Daryl began to practice regularly as a teenager to successfully heal a painful congenital condition in his spine. Drawing on his experience of the benefits of hatha yoga, Daryl gradually incorporated classical asanas into this therapeutic setting to help his clients contact and release tensions stored in their bodymind, and designed specific routines appropriate to each persons needs to help them sustain the harmony, strength, and mobility achieved in the sessions. Since 1992, Daryl has regularly taught Divya Yoga and meditation classes and workshops and retreats, here in Montreal, and in Costa Rica . Daryl Vansier is also an experienced meditation instructor and retreat guide, having meditated for over 40 years, training with Zen and Tibetan Buddhist Masters in the west as well as Raja Yoga Masters at the International Meditation Institute in India. Daryl Vansier has also been practicing body-mind therapy since 1983, as a bodyworker, yoga and meditation teacher, and Voice Dialogue facilitator. Heaven and Earth Institute was founded in 1992 by Daryl Vansier in Montreal, Qubec. Though there is no longer a centre offering yoga classes, yoga teacher trainings, meditation courses, and massage or bodywork sessions, Daryl Vansier continues to share the spirit of Heaven and Earth in the form of individual Yogic Lifestyle Counseling, Voice Dialogue and Dreamwork sessions. Additionally, Daryl Vansier offers yearly Meditation and Yoga Retreats .
