“When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy.”
― Rumi

I came to yoga over ten years ago, studying under various teachers and traditions. At first, it was the physical practice that lit me up and helped me to connect with my body and calm my mind. Since then, my practice has expanded and I have found enormous gifts in my breath and in yoga philosophy, both on and off the mat. I adore my yoga practice for the strength, balance and flexibility it brings to all aspects of my life. Whether I am teaching classes to adults, to my students at school, playing with my own children at home or in my own personal practice, yoga has given me the tools I need to be more present, focused and healthy.

Recognising the transformative power of yoga in my own experiences, I decided to explore more formal training to deepen my own personal practice and to share the gift of yoga with others. I am a graduate of the Lotus Centre Teacher Training program (2008) and the DevaTree 200-hour Cross-Disciplinary Teacher Training (2014). I have my first degree Reiki and a 100-hour Children’s Yoga Teacher certificate through Children’s Garden Yoga. I have also completed DevaTree’s HeartRise training (2014). In 2015, I began assisting the HeartRise Children’s Yoga Teacher Training and am a teacher in that program now. 2015 also saw the completion of 100 hours in Integrative Anatomy and Therapeutics.

My yoga classes come from a place of deep love and compassion, providing a safe environment for students to learn and grow their own personal yoga practice. My love of life brings joy to my yoga classes and extends off the mat into the world. Currently, I teach Yoga Grooves at Shangrila in London. Yoga Grooves is a mixed class of yoga and dance. No experience in yoga or dance in necessary - only a willingness to play! This class runs Thursday evenings from 7:00-8:15. Please contact me through the email link below or phone 519-777-0475 for further information.

Love, light and joy to all…. Namaste!
