HISTORY OF INSPIRE
INSPIRE started with a change of life, an “aha” moment at a key moment. This “aha” moment led to a passion about the human body, mind and spirit. Her exploration of different modalities linked to the mind and body as well as a curious and open-minded attitude led to INSPIRE’s holistic approach.
Inspire Mouvement tailors her classes and massages in order to choose the best approach for each individual. The birth of her two daughters switched INSPIRE’s focus toward the pregnant and postpartum woman.
INSPIRE specializes in pre and post-natal exercises and education in order to support, guide and inform moms the best way she can how to safely move and take care of themselves during and after pregnancy.
About Brigitte Robitaille
''Be the change you want to see in this world'' Gandhi
Brigitte is an instructor-trainer for STOTT PILATES™, massage therapist and specialist in pre and post-natal exercises…and a mother to two wonderful little girls! A university graduate in Psychology, she’s been working in the mind/body and manual therapy since 2004/2008.
She believes that by bringing awareness to our mind and body connexion, we can improve our health, well-being and inner peace. Helping others has always been a passion for Brigitte and she motivates herself by taking continuous courses and workshops on the mind and body.
Her goal is to understand how pilates/movement and massage can contribute to strengthening and softening the mind and body. Her holistic approach considers the entire self because one cannot separate the mind, body and soul.
She’s taught a variety of clients over her 14 plus years of teaching including: children, elderly, special populations and injuries and athletes. She focuses particularly on special populations, especially pregnant and postpartum women as well as those with injuries.
Brigitte is approachable, down-to-earth and calm, which creates a warm and friendly environment. She is detail-oriented, patient, positive and helps motivate her clients to become their strongest and healthiest self.
Since the birth of her first daughter in 2012, Brigitte has had a keen interest in the physical and psychological health of pregnant and postpartum women. She has studied extensively in this field and thinks that it’s important to spread the word on how to effectively take care of women’s health and well-being.
Most recently, she has been certified as a Pain Care Aware Specialist to understand the science behind pain and help those living with it.
