I am the Director of The Sangha Trinidad, currently the ONLY 500hr Yoga Alliance Registered School in the Caribbean!

I have been practicing yoga for over 17 years now. My journey began while finishing my BComm Degree at Ryerson University in Toronto. I first practised Bikram Yoga for about 5 or 6 years, and then Moksha Yoga®. In fact, I was a part of the very first Moksha Yoga® Teacher Training in back in 2004, under the direction of co-founder Ted Grand, co-founder Jessica Robertson and Natalia how long ago that was! It was a Training that changed my life which included Michael Stone, Frank Jude Boccio, John Friend and so many others! She has been teaching for over 10 years from Toronto, Montreal, London (Ontario, Canada) to Trinidad and Tobago, where I have decided to call home today.

I am Yoga Alliance E-RYT® 500, and a Certified Moksha Yoga Level I and II and Certified Yin Yoga, Instructor. I have completed other Trainings as well including the Vipassana 10-day Silent Meditation Course in Costa Rica, have studied Functional Anatomy with Susi Hately (one of Canada’s top Anatomy Instructors, who has worked with the Canadian Olympic Team and is owner of the only solely Therapeutic Yoga Studio in North America) and participated in other trainings in NYC and here in Trinidad.

My teaching style is very heavily based on damage and all about trying to correct the wrongs in the body in order to help folks live in a pain free range of motion. This sometimes makes your class a tad challenging *wink* and some may even refer to me as "the beast"...but that's also know that it all comes from the heart and taught with love.

Here's hoping I see you in one of my classes one day!
