Shawn got into Pilates at the early age of 15 thanks to his mother Grace. He believed in the method so much that he decided he should teach it. Grace and Shawn opened the first Pilates studio on the north shore of Montreal, in Saint-Eustache. They called it Pilates et plus and created small groups so that everyone could enjoy the benefits of the great method. He wanted to explore other methods to offer more the his clients. This naturally brought him to yoga, he completed a 200 hour teacher training at Ashtanga yoga Montreal. In 2008, the studio began offering health seminars to it’s clients, in subjects such as back care and pelvic floor exercices.
Always wanting to learn more he went to McGill and completed a Bachelors in kinesiology. He keeps up to date with certifications in somatraining, acroyoga and Can Fit pro annual conferences. In early 2009 he began his graduate studies in kinesiology at Université de Montéal, where he learns about the most up to date research in physical fitness.
Shawn is also an accomplished circus artist. He performed the flying trapeze in Saoudi Arabia, Oman, Quebec and Ontario. He trains in static double trapeze, single trapeze, hand to hand and wall trampoline. In November 2008 he obtained his first audition for Cirque du Soleil which unfortunately did not pan out. But he still trains hard an hopes that one day this dream will become reality.
In all his different activities he is happy to have such great clothes to wear from such a great company...Thank you lululemon.
