Learning and making things have always given me a sense of liberation. For many years I pursued a formal education. I received a Bachelors of Health Sciences from UWO and a Bachelors of Food and Nutritional Sciences from UBC.
I have always been active but never committed to any particular activity. When I moved to Vancouver I devoted much of my time to the Shaolin Martial Arts practice. I learned kung fu, weapons, tai chi, qi gong, and meditation. I felt so invigorated. I found physical potential I did not know I had but during that time I became attached to my physical practice. After 10 years of practice and 3 kids, I started to lose some of my physical practices and capabilities. I needed something else that could evolve with me. Thankfully I found yoga.
Yoga was transforming, both physically and mentally. I completed my 200Hr training at One Yoga for the People Vancouver, BC in 2011 with no intentions of teaching yoga. After the training I continued to study and practice yoga daily. In 2014 I learned about Sri Dharma Mittra, the Guru that would change my whole way of life. In 2015 I completed by 500Hr training and then my 800Hr in May 2018 in New York with Sri Dharma Mittra. Over the years yoga has become a way of life for me. Every time I practice yoga it is a different and unique experience.
My teachings represent my ongoing journey of self discovery. My classes celebrate the knowledge of every Guru, Master, and teacher I’ve been graced with. Every practice is filled with intention and mindfulness and works the body inside-out.
Constant practice, in any activity, is essential for growth. Every time we step onto our mat there is a new opportunity for self knowledge and growth. My offering is to explore with what may seem "impossible" as possible because over time our hearts will learn to say yes to possibility. May we find a even more ways to connect with the Self and one another - through music, movement, speech, art, food ....
