Pascale Desmarais

Hi, my name’s Pascale Desmarais, and I play hockey at Bishop’s University. I’ve been practicing JOGA
for about a year and a half now, and it’s helped me avoid injuries. As a hockey player, hip and groin
injuries are common, and JOGA has helped me gain strength and stability to avoid these injuries. JOGA
is a mental escape, I improve my breathwork and forget about the world for an hour, but I also get a
workout in. JOGA is my secret weapon because I have had ankle surgery within the past year, and it was
my tool to a faster recovery. Dr. Jo is a great instructor, she makes us hold positions until we think we’re
too dead to hold them, then hold them a little longer. She makes me realize my full potential.
