My name is Joanne Basilières. I first entered the world of international business affairs after graduating from McGill University with a B.A. in Psychology and a degree in Marketing. During my 15 years in Marketing Management, I was introduced through friends to the health benefits of Reiki, Holistic Kinesiology, Mystical Alchemy, Hatha Yoga, and Meditation. I quickly discovered that by practicing Yoga and Meditation regularly and receiving energetic therapy treatments, it helped manage my stress, promoted a deep connection with myself and enabled personal healing.
After a few years, I decided to change my life course and I registered for Hatha Yoga teacher training and became a certified Hatha Yoga Teacher. Likewise, I followed my calling to study and become a certified Reiki Master and Teacher of the Usui System of Natural Healing.
After much deliberation, I finally decided to leave the marketing business world to follow my passion and to pursue my dream of helping others. Thus in 2010, I founded the Spirita Wellness Studio, located on the South Shore of Montreal, Canada, in St-Bruno-de-Montarville, which offers a calm and intimate environment and the personalized support system will enable you to reach your true potential. We offer energetic therapy treatments and Hatha Yoga classes for adults or children. We also offer Reiki and Mystical Alchemy workshops as well as an annual Yoga and Meditation silent retreat in the Laurentian Mountains, north of Montreal.
As I pursue my journey toward spiritual, emotional and physical well being, I am continually learning new energetic therapies, including Shamanism and Holistic Kinesiology, which fundamentally enriches my work as a Naturotherapist in order to continue my dream of helping others find balance. I am also registered with the Association de Naturotherapists of Quebec Inc. (ANQ).
