Estephanie Jémus-Gonzalez

My name is Estephanie Jémus-Gonzalez, I am 20 years-old and a student at the University of Ottawa, currently completing my 4th year in Translational and Molecular Medicine. Two months prior my first year of university, at the age of 16 years old, I was diagnosed with a stage IV Hodgkin Lymphoma. It was the most difficult period of my life, but I came out with more maturity, stronger relationships and developed values that allow me to face any challenges. I'm enjoying all the small things life can offer me and I give back to society by conducting cancer research and volunteering for causes, such as Lymphoma Canada, that are close to my heart with the goal of becoming a physician and save lives.

Having taught yoga and meditation since 2001, there is one thing that I am confident about: yoga practice is for every body. I have taught yoga in virtually every conceivable environment, to people from the entire spectrum of age, culture and physical condition. As my teacher used to say, "It is the one good, for all good".
 
I have been extremely fortunate to have been guided by two master teachers, Yogacharaya Nandakumar and Siromani Sriram. Beyond being in awe of their mastery of the practice, what was more inspiring was how remarkable they were as human beings. I remember my then young mind wondering, "If I could be just a little bit like them, then this is definitely worth practicing".
 
It is an honor and privilege to pass on what I continue to learn, with enthusiasm and due justice to the practice. So, it is very important to me that yoga is taught properly, to the best on my understanding. It is my hope and trust that this sincerity comes through in my guidance, so that this practice can be as beneficial for you as it has been for me.

“The real teacher is right under your nose. It is the breath.”
