Fabienne (Fabi) Fonteneau
Fabienne (Fabi) FonteneauInstructor

Fabi’s journey into yoga started with curiosity -and chance – as a means of staying active. Trying something new was her first motivation. The well-being sensation she felt after her first Savasana made her want more.

That was the beginning of a regular practice that eventually led her to seek for a deeper knowledge of the yoga philosophy. What started as a simple interest turned out to be something that changed her life as she signed up for the 200 hr YTT with Meg Galarza at Yoga One Studio. As a teacher her hope is that every student experiences the “feel-good” sensation leaving the studio, feeling renewed, at peace with their mind & body.
