---MassOterra brings virtual yoga to the forefront
With the pandemic continuing to impact people’s mental health, local self-care studio MassOterra is calling on the community to de-stress by participating in its virtual yoga classes. Located on 140-B rue Principale, the studio focuses on making people feel mentally and physically better through a wide variety of personal-care practices.
According to owner Brigitte Faubert, MassOterra’s online yoga courses are an ideal avenue for unwinding nerves and reducing tension - noting that only this area of the studio has been moved to online. The rest of the studio is open as it is considered an essential service. “It’s all about the global well-being of the person,” Faubert said.
Launching the service earlier in the pandemic to provide access to people who didn’t feel comfortable in crowded spaces, Faubert noted that the yoga classes are live streamed via MassOterra’s website and led by a cast of specialized instructors. Whether for Yin Yoga, Iyengar inspired Yoga, or Kundalini Yoga, people can consult MassOterra’s schedule for online yoga courses via the company’s website - https://en.massoterra.com/horaire.
Providing their services to the utmost standard, Faubert added that MassOterra’s therapists also teach clients how to properly take care of themselves outside of the studio – notably how to manage stress. Also offering different kinds of massage services, orthotherapy, meditation workshops and other specialized techniques and courses, MassOterra’s therapists put an emphasis on listening to their clients to provide specific kinds of therapeutic treatment. Notably, MassOterra’s sports massage specialist Catalina Ortiz provides a top-of-the-line auto-massage service that is guaranteed to provide soothing rellief.
“Our idea is that a massage is not a luxury, but an essential need,” Faubert said, noting that MassOterra’s massage services remain open. “The way society is today … at some point we really need to take care of ourselves to continue to produce. If we just keep getting tired without regenerating our batteries, that’s not good.”
To ensure customers feel safe as possible inside its building, MassOterra’s staff is going above and beyond in its efforts of applying the provincial government’s recommended COVID-19 safety measures.
