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 Shambala 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 working on my 500 hour training through MA, and am quite focused on Mantra (chanting) as well as supportive touch and assists.
Great expertise, very clear instructions, well thought out sequence, excellent use of time, variety. Creation of a welcoming and peaceful clam space to practice in!
Wonderful messages and themes -lots of modifications and an accessible style of teaching. I loved this class :)
I love everything. Your yogic teaching at the beginning, the chakra focus, the music and how you keep us flowing in a very relaxed yet organized way.
