Call me cliché—and cliché again for saying it—but yoga helped me to not only heal physically, but mentally, emotionally, and spiritually! It came into my life when I needed it most and aided in the transformation to the person I am now happy to be. Since my original Hatha Flow training at Prana Yoga College in 2011, I’ve continued to study, learn, and evolve as a teacher and person. Most of what I teach in class comes from life experiences, although I’ve supplemented my training with group fitness, STOTT Pilates, meditation, rehab and physio experience, integrative nutrition and recently a 500 RYT certification. Having taught from Vancouver and Vancouver Island to Newfoundland and then the Middle East, I’ve seen the way yoga can reach different people around the world; this global view and understanding certainly influences my teaching style. These days I’m joyfully busy as a mom of two little ones. Enough said! Outside the family, my focus is on supporting women’s health—particularly through prenatal yoga, a wellness blog, and retreats. Because of a traumatic and disempowering first birth experience and the subsequent reclamation of my power and most amazing second birth (all thanks to prenatal yoga and the community built around it) I am committed and honoured to help pregnant women experience their own power and own their birthing process and transformation to motherhood with yoga.
