I first discovered Yoga as a high school student, enjoying the physical benefits of cultivating a strong, flexible and lean body. After maintaining an intermittent practice during university, I rediscovered a regular Yoga practice in the Iyengar style upon entering the workforce. My Yoga practice helped to manage the stress of my high pressure job, eased lower back pain sustained from frequent travel and desk based work and created a space in my life where I could ‘regroup’ and feel good in my body, mind and spirit.
My passion for Yoga continued to grow, gifting me with unexpected discoveries about myself – such as discovering my desire to share Yoga with others!
I completed my initial Yoga teacher training in 2014 in the Sri T. Krishnamacharya lineage and influenced by my Guruji’s principle – ‘teach what is inside you, not as it applies to you, to yourself, but as it applies to the other’, I believe Yoga is for everyone if it is tailored and taught in an inclusive way. This principle has led me to share Yoga in various styles including Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga, Yin Yoga, Yin-Yang Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Yoga Therapy, Aerial Yoga and Yoga Nidra.
I enjoy focusing on the therapeutic benefits of Yoga and have continued my studies as a Somatic Exercise Coach with Martha Peterson, Level 1 Thai Yoga Massage with the Thai Massage School of Chiang Mai, Pre & Post- Natal Yoga, Children’s & Teen’s Yoga, Yin Yoga with Jo Phee and Antigravity Yoga.
I discovered Master Yang’s Calligraphy Health System in 2015 and instantly connected to the flowing movements and cultivation of internal energy. Having lived in Asia for over three years, including one year living in Shanghai - China, I immediately resonated with this traditional Eastern healing practice. After completing the Level 1 and Level 2 teacher training in January 2016, I experienced immediate health benefits, including renewed vitality and energy, regulated hormones, clarity in skin quality and peace of mind. Having experienced the healing qualities of Master Yang’s Calligraphy Health system first hand, I am excited to share this transformative technique with others.
