During my childhood and youth I was immersed in competitive dance, where we were taught to push our bodies beyond a healthy limit. I have now been practicing yoga for over a decade and have built a much more loving and gentle mind/body narrative. I have also been practicing Buddhist meditation, and other forms of meditation, for about 15 years.
These experiences have changed how I live my day to day life and have allowed me to foster a deep self-love, compassion and empathy for others, and resilience to life's challenges. I then became inspired to share what I have experienced through yoga with others.
In 2020 I completed my 250 hour Yoga Teacher Training at Moksana in Victoria BC, a studio very close to my heart. In addition to more traditional forms of yoga, I have since been studying specialties related to partner yoga, yoga for children and also designing classes intended for the surf and kite boarding communities. I am currently nearing completion of my 500 hour training through MA, and am quite focused on Mantra (chanting), the Sanskrit language, as well as supportive touch and assists.
