I have an honours degree from Queens University in Psychology and Religious Studies and a Bachelor of Education from Brock University. I successfully completed the Blissology 240 hour yoga teacher training with world renowned Canadian yogi, Eoin Finn in 2013 and in 2016 training (50 hours) with Susi Hately in therapeutic yoga for pain. I have over 1000 hours of teaching experience and an additional 300 hours of extra training. I am registered with Yoga Alliance and Yoga Alliance Canada and am certified in First Aid and CPR.
After hurting my back in a serious car accident in 2008, I finally decided to explore my curiosity with yoga on a deeper level. While teaching in Hong Kong, I fell in love with yoga and was instantly captured by the physical and mental benefits of yoga asana.
Yoga has helped in immeasurable ways including coping with the untimely death of my mom, daily stressors at work, developed better sleeping and eating habits and noticed significant improvement in my overall health. Within months sof my first yoga class, I developed a daily practice that grew to include breathing practices, meditation, gratitude, chanting and the study of yogic philosophy, and healthy eating.
I have always been drawn to teachers who inspire and challenge me to seek personal growth. My classes are lighthearted and fun and infused with mindful awareness. With a focus on breath, alignment and the practicing presence, I hopes to assist students in cultivating inner awareness and joy.
I want people to practice yoga because it promotes healing and well-being on every level – physically, mentally, spiritually, emotionally and interpersonally. Each persons practice and expression will be different and nuanced so I create a yoga program that is unique for each client or group class. Let me share her passion of yoga with you. I have nothing to prove and everything to share!
