For me the word yoga has become a very transferable term. I Believe yoga is just as much about learning how to navigate our bodies, as it is about exploring new ways to experience a more fulfilling life. I started practicing both Asana and Meditation about 9 years ago and throughout the last 4 years of teaching, my relationship to both practices has evolved and adapted to become much more holistic. My intention as a teacher is to simply get my students into a meditative head space so that they can form their own unique relationship to the practice and use it as a means of self discovery. Music is a very big component in my teaching, as it helps students find their rhythm and can be a very powerful device for transformation. In addition to working within the studio & wellness environment, I have dedicated much of the past 3 years to bringing mindfulness practices into schools across the Greater Toronto Area as part of an extensive mental health and research initiative. I have taught classroom students and educators strategies for stress reduction, self regulation and emotional resiliency in over 50 schools, which has been by far one of the most rewarding opportunities I have ever received. I believe yoga and meditation is literally for everybody and I'm very passionate about sharing the same modalities that have brought greater harmony, creativity and purpose into my life.
