Born and raised in Canada, I was introduced to yoga as a way to reduce stress and help condition the body for various sport activities. I turned this love for movement and breath into a career and now I am a certified yoga instructor, Thai massage therapist, and anatomy teacher.

I have been teaching at studios, yoga teacher training’s, ashrams, retreat centers, hotels and corporate offices around the world for the past 6 years.  I am extremely dedicated to creating a nurturing and safe environment for students to support inward focus and exploration of the body, mind, and spirit for yogis of all levels.  I have specialized in Power Vinyasa & Hatha but also teach Yin, Restorative, Therapeutics, Pranayama & Meditation classes.  I like to incorporate different techniques within my classes such as myofascial release and somatics to help students find new and creative ways to connect with themselves.

I have also studied Thai yoga massage to help connect with my students on a deeper level through compassionate touch and yogic mindfulness.  I believe that yoga can help bring clarity and balance to everyone’s life no matter age or ability and that life on and off the mat should be met with a blend of playfulness and mindfulness.
