Physical and Mental Core: How Maternity and Personal Growth Played a Major Role

Amélia Lamanque ~ Dancer and Fitness Professional

Born in Montreal, Amélia Lamanque began dancing at the age of 3 and had the opportunity to pursue her dream by being trained at l’École Supérieure de Ballet du Québec. During her studies, she demonstrated her talent internationally by dancing for various renowned choreographers. Upon leaving school, she performed as an independent artist for several productions including "The Nutcracker" by Les Grands Ballets Canadiens and for Cirque Eloïze. Amélia is currently working on a project with Sinha Danse, a company based in Montreal.

Always eager to learn more, improve her skills and help others, she obtained her AEC in teaching classical dance, as well as her personal trainer certification and she is also a certified OTF coach.

Amelia speaks about how motherhood changed some of her perspectives on life, her transition into the fitness world, and the importance of believing in yourself. She has always believed that we have a physical core, as well as a mental core. They work together, but still they each need to be individually supported. The mental is just as important as the physical.

2:45 - 3:15 PM

Overcoming Disordered Eating and Rebuilding Your Relationship With Food

Meg Henkenhaf ~ Intuitive Eating Coach

Meg started right where you are.  So stuck in an endless cycle of dieting and binging, feeling so out of control around food. After many attempts at treatment and therapy, her own journey to recovery looked a little different than many of the other approaches.  Now, after many years of a fuller, freer, healthier relationship with food and her body, she has taken those same techniques and tools to help other women become success stories when it comes to rebuilding their relationships with food and their bodies - effortlessly.

3:15 - 3:45 PM

Body Image Resilience

Jenni Morse ~ Founder of Rise with Resilience™

Originally from Toronto, Jenni toured Canada and the United States as a dancer for many years before discovering Zumba and settling down in Montreal. Since then, she's passionately hosted several Zumba Fitness parties and fundraisers, taught at many of Montreal’s most popular fitness clubs, facilitated body image workshops for businesses and non-profit organisations, and helped countless men and women to feel strong, fit, and confident, both online and in person! Having founded Rise with Resilience™, Jenni aims to eradicate body image concerns and create a truly uplifting, empowering, and body-neutral community, leveraging her own journey in fitness to heal others' negative body image through movement.

​​​

Bodies change, bodies fluctuate. We go through tough times. We are constantly faced with adversity, discrimination. But guess what… we are RESILIENT.

This is your time to celebrate all that you have been through and indulge in fitness that is empowering. You deserve it.
