Founder of Emotional Gymnastics®

She obtained a post-graduate studies degree in somatic education (DESS) at l’Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM). For more than fifteen years she have been teaching Emotional Gymnastics (EG) in her Montréal center (Centre Martine Veilleux).

She had already practised Madame Bertherat’s Anti-gymnastics technique. This approach enthused her, as it enabled her to free ourself from her inner sufferings. It allowed her body to loosen the muscular rigidities she had accumulated due to the trials of the past. So it was with great interest that she followed  the training in Anti-gymnastics and that she graduated in 1997.

Up until 2004, she participated every two years in training courses in order to deepen her knowledge in this field.

With time, as the pedagogy of her practice changed, she became aware that the term ‘’Anti-gymnastics’’did not suit her teaching. This led to her decision to create her own approach namely ’’Emotional Gymnastics®’’, inspired by the following :


  • Anti-gymnastics
  • The Sensory Awareness Approach
  • Françoise Mézières who discovered the existence of the posterior muscle chain

She remain passionate about the Emotional Gymnastics® approach, since it  never ceases to demonstrate to her the extent of the possibilities we all have.
