I practiced yoga in my early 20's and returned to it later on because of a little pain in my hips. I was also having a conflict with someone I worked with at the time and needed to release that stress and process how I was to deal with the situation. My first class was so good that I had to come back. I also needed more rigorous activity and at the time I didn't know that there were different styles of yoga to suite my needs. I've done most of my formal training for Yoga & Yoga Therapy in Victoria at Pacific Rim College of Complementary & Integrated Medicine. My inspiration to teach came more from my experience of going deeper into the yoga and from all my teachers who have taught with all their conscious awareness and heart. I teach a couple of different styles of yoga. My favourite is very much Yin. I also guide and appreciate a flow style class with fewer students so that I can infuse their practice with therapeutics of touch and conscious awareness of body. I appreciate postures that are held for longer than the average so that release can be invited. The realization that yoga is not only what happens on my yoga mat in a studio has been my greatest learning. Being aware that cultivating that same feeling of acceptance that I have for my body when I practice and transferring that awareness to all aspects of my life, brings me a great sense of peace as I go through my day to day. Yoga is not just a form of exercise it is a way of being.
