Exhale Yoga Studio, is located in downtown Cranbrook, It is a beautiful studio, with a relaxing feel. Certified and experinced teachers.
I started my journey with yoga 19 years ago. It soon became my passion. I credit yoga with helping me balance my life and my health as well ad giving me a better understanding of how the body works and heals on all levels.
After practising different styles of yoga for 9 years I took a year long course called Inner Scape, with Lynn Walker a psyche and yoga teacher from Calgary. After I finished I realized I wanted to share my passion and become a yoga teacher.
I attended the Trinity Yoga teachers’ training with Mary Jo Fetterly. But my influences are wide and vast as I have studied under Master teachers throughout the Canada and Asia giving me over 400 hours of additional training.
After all of my work and studying I realized it was the area of Yoga Therapy, that won my heart, and healed my body more then anything I had worked with before. I thoroughly enjoy passing this knowledge on to my students in my studio in Cranbrook in what I feel is a caring and thoughtful manner. I endeavour to give each of my them special attention and adaptations for their individual needs as well as gently challenging them but never moving them beyond what their bodies can accomplish.
I have had several serious car accidents and surgeries; which have given me experience with my own body movements, living with pain and the emotions that come along with healing, I have empathy towards those living and dealing with pain on all levels. In some ways I am grateful for these injuries (lessons), as I feel it makes me a more effective and compassionate teacher who understands what her students are going through. But my real learning comes through the eyes and bodies of my students with whom I have developed a relationship of friendship and healing together.
As owner and primary facilitator of Exhale Yoga Studio, a yoga and Canadian Alliance studio, I teach up to 9 classes a week and lead retreats and workshops. I also gives private and corporate group lessons.
