My teaching path began in 1993 in Halifax Nova Scotia as a personal trainer. When our family relocated to Dubai, I began to develop my hatha yoga practice, which lead to teaching opportunities from 2006 onward. We relocated back to Ottawa Ontario where I had the honor of teaching within the Beyond Yoga Studio and Blue Bamboo community from 2011-2015.  One more move has landed me in Kelowna BC in 2015 looking for a yoga community that craves mindful yoga.   Observing my students and my own practice, I began to see that forcing the body to fit into yoga poses without proper alignment created injuries,  issues and frustrations.  My desire to learn and teach a mindful and modified practice for all bodies, has become my main focus. We all have our own stories, issues, injuries and posture patterns that must be examined and worked with each changing day.
I have had the opportunity to work with sports teams, amateur, junior and semi pro athletes. Hockey players to marathon runners, on site corporate yoga, toddlers, tweens and teens.  One on One private sessions, sports teams, seniors and breast cancer survivors. I am a member of Canadian Yoga Alliance RYT-250hr, Radiant Child level 3 teacher and of course a Yoga Tune Up® level 1 teacher and a Roll Model Method Practitioner.
I welcome young, old, beginners to advanced, bendy and not so bendy.  Join me to learn how to live, move  and feel better in your body.
