Maude Iralde

January 22, 2020

Maude is undeniably passionate about sports and health.

In 1999, after two years of studying in physical education at UQAM, she put her studies aside to dedicate herself full-time to her two daughters. It wasn’t until 2008, under her osteopaths’ recommendation, that she discovered yoga to heal her knee after having suffered an injury. Practicing on a regular basis, she soon realized that yoga is more than a simple physical activity. In September 2009, Maude undertook the Moksha Yoga training in Las Vegas and has since then been actively teaching and working within the yoga community.

A teacher at heart, Cariné has been working with children suffering from Autism for nearly 10 years.

A few ago, experiencing exhaustion due to the constraints of work and daily life hassles, her sister recommended she try out a class at moksha. Having practiced yoga in the past, and not enjoying it one bit, she was apprehensive, but gave the one week 20$ into a run for its money.

The positive repercussions in Cariné’s life were almost instant, and she knew she had to integrate yoga into her daily routine. Incorporating a regular practice led to healthy lifestyle changes, where she discovered the numerous benefits of nutrition.It is with tremendous joy and great enthusiasm that she wishes to share her love of yoga and other passions with everyone.

Her curious nature lead her to follow a roommate to her very first hot yoga class at Moksha Yoga Montreal in 2010. After a 30 day challenge that left her in complete bliss, and a recommendation from an instructor, the thought of becoming an instructor lingered in her head for quite some time, until she finally decided to go all in, quit her job and just do it!
