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, the YTU Breath & Bliss Immersion,
YTU Hips Immersion, The Science of Rolling and Ball Sequencing & Innovation.
I lead a 200-hour Movement Evolution Yoga Teacher Training: a movement modality informed from the best of asana, kinesiology, biomechanics, dance and dynamic movement theory and blends it with texts and philosophies found in many yoga traditions.
I am currently undertaking my Personal Trainer Certification
at Caveman Strong.
I am excited to be able to offer even more in one-on-one sessions!
