Her training began in 2015 at YYoga in Vancouver with Kristen Campbell and Janet Corvino. After one month of intensive study, she earned her 200-hour teacher training, and has been teaching ever since. A native Vancouverite, she teaches at several locations throughout the city. During our sunny summers, she spends much of her time teaching outdoors at Kitsilano Beach or on herprivate rooftop. Her classes are a playful mixture of strength-building and soul-seeking, often offering arm balances or variations along the way. When not teaching literature or practicing yoga, she loves to explore the world with her husband, baby girl Everly, and dog, Lola.
Born and raised in Quebec, Maude has called Vancouver home for the last decade. Her love of food, travel, and people has led her to explore many different roles in the wine industry, from sommelier at iconic restaurants such as Nightingale and Chambar, to her most recent role with Lifford Wine & Spirits importers. She has always believed in giving back to the industry she loves, she is now an educator at Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts . With an unpretentious approach to wine, she recently founded APÉROmode, to expand the community of wine enthusiasts by making wine accessible through education and events. An original student of the International Sommeliers Guild, the world of wine has always been about exploring for Maude, so she is continuing her studies with the WSET Diploma program.
