Contact for private, semi private, Corporate and special event booking. With over 20 years experience in yoga, movement training and therapeutic applications I am adept at teaching all levels of experience and facilitating a supportive and fun learning environment.
I am a yogi, yoga educator, spiritual activist, mother by choice and by divine intervention and art enthusiast!
I have had the pleasure of facilitating and co-creating with our community our yoga and wellness studio , the twisted fish, in Port Dover , Ontario. The studio will be closed effective September 30, however I will continue teaching.
My journey into the world of yoga began as an effort to manage my personal mental health and a lifetime of periodic and debilitating depression. Almost from the very moment my feet hit the mat I felt like I had come home to myself. I felt more at ease and more comfortable in my own skin.
The practice quickly became a passion for me and one that I wanted to share.
Initially taught by an Iyengar trained teacher, mentored by a Kripalu and Ashtangi yogi and inspired endlessly by Vinyassa flow practice my own practice and teaching styles are alignment based, heart centered and flow organically. Having trained in therapeutic yoga and Thai Yoga massage and as a personal fitness trainer, I have many different modalities I draw on for teaching and working one on one with clients.
