Candace Poirier - RYT-200

Candace Poirier


Candace’s calling is to help shift others into radiant health and conscious living through yoga, nutrition, mindfulness and essential oils. She is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, Hyde Park, NY, a 200 hour Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance, is a Reiki practitioner and a essential oil educator.

Candace’s love for the artistic expression of ballet and modern dance fueled her to find any practice that calmed the mind and kept her grounded in her body. She found yoga at age 19 and after completing the (200 hour YogaWorks teacher training in 2011 started teaching. Candace's classes tend to be creatively sequenced, vinyasa krama (everything in its place), with cues for safe body alignment and focus on the breath. She infuses the teachings and tools that have helped her to awaken to a consciousness that allows for a fulfilled and joyous life. She draws from different yoga branches such as Ashtanga, Iyengar, Viniyoga and Kundalini. She is so honored to have worked with yoga mentors: Melanie Salvatore August, Mynx Inatsugu, and Angie Norwood at YogaWorks, Walnut Creek, CA and Reiki mentors Laurelle Shanti Gaia and Michael Baird at the International Center for Reiki Training, in Sedona, AZ.
