Corin A. De Sousa B.A., M.A.
She is passionate about teaching mindfulness for everyday living with an emphasis on both formal and informal mindfulness practices. Unique among mindfulness instructors, she highlights the importance of mindful activities and how to adapt these practices to suit different lifestyles. Corin believes that accessibility should be at the forefront of healthcare and that is why she provides free and affordable content for clients. Additionally, she prides herself on creating a safe and welcoming space for all, free of judgement and full of compassion.
5 years ago, she started her journey with mindfulness as a way to cope with the challenges associated with her Undifferentiated Connective Tissue Disease (UCTD). With daily mindfulness she has been able to better manage her symptoms, chronic pain, insomnia, and stress. Teaching mindfulness is not just a job for Corin, but comes from a place of understanding and experience. Due to her own struggles with mobility she takes extra care to ensure that all of her clients feel comfortable and meditations and/or activities require little or no movement.
In 2016, she completed the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) program at Women's College Hospital through the Toronto Academic Pain Medicine Institute (TAPMI). With a Master’s Degree in History from Queen's University she utilizes her expert research skills to create quality content that is both engaging and educational. Besides teaching mindfulness, she works part-time as a marketing manager for a custom clothing company. When she’s not working she enjoys foreign films, antique hunting, museums, trying new food, and strolling through the city.
