My journey with yoga began almost twenty years ago when I was drawn to the meditative practice of self-inquiry and reflection. Following my path to teacher training at Prana Yoga and Zen Centre in Vancouver, I achieved certification in 1999. I apprenticed with Shakti Mhi for two years before diving into teaching as a full-time profession. Along the way I earned a B.A. as a student of Cultural Anthropology and Sociology, which inspired my unique approach to teaching vinyasa flow yoga.
My goal is to demystify yoga teachings and translate the practice to fit modern life, making yoga accessible for anyone, regardless of age, ability or lifestyle. I draw on my extensive trainings and experience in a broad range of yoga disciplines to design personalized private or group sessions that meet the specific needs of each individual.
Ongoing study is paramount for me and I continue my own trainings with many yoga teachers from different traditions, including Angela Farmer, Shiva Rea, Bryan Kest, Beryl Bender Birch, Seane Corn, Tiffany Cruikshank and Kathryn Budig.
