I am a certified yoga teacher, registered with both Yoga Alliance and Canadian Yoga Alliance. I have received over 750 hours in additional training in Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy, Kripalu YogaDance, Pre/Postnatal Yoga; Restorative Yoga and Yoga for Seniors.
I have been practicing yoga since 1999 and teaching yoga and meditation since 2003. I began assisting in the 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training (YTT) in 2004 at the previous "Lotus Centre for Yoga & Health" studio in London, Ontario and became the Director of Yoga at The Lotus Centre in June 2008. I continue to offer 200 Hour YTT at Benders Yoga in London, Ontario.
I am passionate about living authentically and honouring the innate design and mechanics of the human body. I invite students and teachers alike to recognize what yoga postures and practices support this design, how to practice them safely and to avoid poses that may cause harm. Above all, I am passionate about empowering women to embrace their innate value and inner authority and helping people of all genders to create harmony and balance, both within and without.
