Here’s the short version: I have explored lots of different things intellectually, socially, spiritually, and physically in order to get really good at creating a life I love and being true to myself. This has taken time over the years to practice and get it right and often I challenge myself to continue practicing if I think I am becoming complacent with my life or work. I like to be involved with one new thing on an on-going basis to encourage myself to look at things in a fresh perspective. The things I really love doing are helping people to implement the important small changes in their lives so they can begin to see benefits quickly and making complex ideas more understandable and accessible in my teaching. Natural health has become my passion.
For those of you who want the professional bio, here it is! –
I have had extensive training and experience in Neuromuscular Therapy and Physio work which informed dramatically my knowledge of anatomy and physiology. I worked as a Sports Therapist and Remedial massage Therapist since 1995 and have recently let this go to focus exclusively on Yoga. Previously, I obtained a Master’s degree in Counselling and a B.A. in Counselling and Rehabilitation. Through these two distinct branches of therapy, I bring a unique breadth of knowledge, compassion, and practical experience to my teaching.
I am a Kripalu trained Yoga teacher, formally completing my initial teacher training in 2005. I quickly discovered how much more there was to learn about Yoga when I started teaching regularly, and subsequently completed an advanced 500 hour teacher training (2008). I love learning as much as I love teaching, and have since completed several more training programs, including Yoga for Healthy Lower Backs (130 hours) and a Yoga Therapy Diploma. I consider myself a perennial student, first and foremost . Constantly learning more about Yoga has brought a depth and precision to my teaching, and this is enhanced by my daily home practice.
My classes reflect my deep understanding of Yoga and an awareness of body and mind gained though years of study and practice.
