The first time I tried yoga, I didn't like it! It took me a few years to come back to it and find a teacher who inspired me. What really hit me was the sense of peace I felt after each class..... that is what continues to bring me home to yoga. I have trained primarily in India (Sivananda) and Vancouver. My main teacher is Clara Roberts-Oss, but formative teachers for me have also included Janet Stone, Shiva Rea, and Swami Govindananda. I teach Power Vinyasa Flow yoga, using peak pose sequencing and drawing on energetic or elemental themes. My classes are always creatively different, will challenge you in fun ways, and will always make you sweat! I want to make you strong and open you up - in your body, in your mind, and most importantly in your heart. My classes are for continuing practitioners and courageous beginners! Yoga makes me a better person. When I practice regularly, I have more patience, more understanding, more compassion, more strength, more tenacity, and more love to give. My hope is to help others discover this connection within themselves, as well. I steadfastly believe that people are capable of more than they think. And that they will never know that unless they try. So I will do my absolute best to give you the best chance to wildly succeed in your practice, and in your life.
