Teacher. Trainer. Yogi. Dancer. Photographer. Mother. Mover.
A passionate, lifelong student of the body, I have studied extensively in many forms of both dance and yoga.
I turned to yoga after a serious car accident that left me in chronic pain. Combining movement, breath and mindfulness began the journey to recovery, and lead me to over a decade of trainings, workshops and deep personal learning. I thrive on the challenge of tailoring movements and classes to meet my students’ needs and compassionately bring them into a deeper relationship with their own bodies.
My Contemporary Dance life involved training and working across Canada, with adventures into the US and Mexico.
Ten years of teaching yoga and over 25 years in multiple dance trainings and professional performance give me a unique relationship to the body, allowing me to lead classes that draw deeply on these many movement experiences.
I encourage a sense of play, exploration and a desire to live, and move, with more stability and freedom.
I currently offer Tune Up Fitness® Level 1 Teacher Trainings as well as YTU Core Immersion, YTU Breath & Bliss Immersion, YTU Shoulders Immersion, YTU Hips Immersion, The Science of Rolling and Ball Sequencing & Innovation.
I recently took my Personal Trainer Certification with Caveman Strong.
I am currently enrolled in full-time studies at Carleton University in the school of Cognitive Science, with a specialization in Neuroscience. My passion for anatomy and the body is now extending to the brain & nervous system and the relationship to mind.
