My classes help people ground into their bodies so they can live with more strength and clarity…. Because it is truly a revolutionary act to slow down in our current world.
My hope is that I encourage people to be their own best teacher and healer. In my Hatha classes, you will progress through methodically sequenced, heat-building postures. You’ll access your own power through breathwork, core work (hello Forrest Yoga abdominals!), sun salutations, and longer-held asana. In yin yoga, you will be guided through softer pranayama, supportive postures, and pauses to allow space for self-discovery and reflection.
I began practicing yoga in 2006 and the further down the path I have traveled, the more I realize that this journey is infinite. I am continuously confronted with insights, inspiration, and darkness in both teaching and practicing, which is probably what has kept me on this road for so long! Yoga allows me to be both brave and honest with myself, and I consider myself a forever student of this practice.
I completed my 200-hour training with the Salt Spring Centre of Yoga in 2012 and my 80-hour Forrest Yoga Advanced Teacher Training in 2018. Most recently, I completed a 60-hour Bedside Yoga training with Molly Lannon Kenney. The training was not only a balm for dealing with the pain of losing my own mom, but also an opportunity to apply the teachings of yoga off the mat to support those facing end-of-life, death, and grief. Other influential teachers include Ana Forrest, Liz Doyle, and Sarah Manwaring-Jones.
Beyond yoga, I am a mom to two amazing twin girls who constantly challenge me and are truly the most powerful of my teachers. I am also a dog-mom to a playful toy poodle mix named Summer and a chicken-mom to a whole coop-full of hens! I am passionate about food & cooking, love music (listening and playing. In a former life I was a classically trained violist), spending time outdoors with my family, and traveling.
