I am a professional Yoga Therapist, Certified by the International Association of Yoga Therapists, with 30+ years of experience.
Having studied in England, Denmark, Sweden, India and other countries, I was trained as a yoga teacher and therapist in many styles including Zen, Kalari Marma, Kriya, Tantra and Hatha yoga. However, Japanese Zen Yoga and South Indian Kalari Marma Yoga have been my passion and practice for more than 30 years. Both styles have their roots in Japanese and Indian healing practices and are related to traditional martial arts. Their techniques differ from other styles of yoga. These techniques are filled with therapeutic secrets which, through the centuries, were only known to Masters of martial arts, and allowed them to efficiently treat different injuries of their students. The beauty of Zen and Kalari Marma Yoga lies in the simplicity and efficiency of their techniques which can be practiced by anyone, to both balance the body and mind and to treat chronic and acute individual health problems. You don't need to be young and flexible to start, because the main goal is to treat any underlying health issues. Both styles of Yoga Therapy I use include positions, specific movements, breathing techniques, meditation, the application of massage, real gold and silver pellets, and moxa to points on the body, that facilitate the healing of organs and injuries.
As a Yoga Therapist I offer an individual sessions, health assessment and personalised yoga programs, yoga classes and workshops to people wishing to efficiently address their individual health concerns and to improve their health.
I also combine my knowledge of traditional yoga and modern health science in my everyday work as a Registered Massage Therapist and Registered Health and Exercise Practitioner in Toronto.
