Carina Raisman is the founder and visionary of re:source, Montreal’s first Yoga Therapy School – where health is considered to be a collective response of all systems working fluidly together.
Graduating with honors from McGill University, obtaining a BSc in Microbiology and Immunology, she enriches her education with a year abroad at the Faculté de Pharmacie in Montpellier, France, providing added knowledge in many fields, namely pharmacology, homeopathy, and plant-therapy.
Her yoga classes emphasize alignment, posture, stress management, and awareness of breath. Her approach integrates anatomy, physiology, immunology and cognitive psychology to establish equilibrium between Stress and Relaxation Responses.
Dance, bodywork, and macrobiotic nutrition have helped her to see what cannot be seen under a microscope: health cannot be pinpointed to a part or a particle, if not the delicate balance of all parts working fluidly together.
At the present, Carina is devoting time to bridging the gap between modern medicine and Yogatherapy, and maintains a yoga therapy practice out of re:source and The Montreal Center for Integrative Medicine.
She is passionate about teaching people to take care of their health through yoga. Through research and collaboration, Carina aims to integrate Yoga into the public health system, making Yoga, health and well-being, accessible to all.
