Guest BIO:

My name is Romy Toussaint and I have been called “The Energy Queen”. I empower those around me to create a complete practice of consciously leading their lives; to manage their energy and become physically strong through all stages of their lives; to connect to their minds; strengthen their spirit so they can do their work in the world.

I am a transformational trainer and coach, motivational speaker, and yoga teacher. I am a professional speaker and presenter on the benefits of mindfulness yoga and wellness. I am an expert at customizing and facilitating physical activity breaks, and mindfulness sessions at conferences and workshops for all types of groups and organizations.

I have been teaching yoga and mindfulness for over 20 years. I am a conscious leadership life coach and a certified yoga teacher. I have studied alignment-based yoga, Kundalini, Hatha, Vinyasa yoga and meditation with a variety of teachers and have over 1,000 hours of yoga certification.

I love yoga because it helps me to do everything better. I’ve been married to my college sweetheart for 30 years. I am the mother of four amazing sons and the oldest of 5 children.
