Devotional Chant Artist and RYT-550 Yoga Instructor

Bhakti Yoga is the yoga of devotion and an important part of my life; a music meditation, creative expression, a way to connect with community and a way to connect with the Divine. Since Bhakti Heart Fire in 2016, I have been writing original chant music, leading Kirtan and providing live music for other yoga teachers. I’ve also been blessed to chant and/or teach at the Toronto Yoga Conference, Peterborough Yoga Festival, London Yogathon, London Yoga Festival and Bhakti in the Woods. I lead monthly kirtans in the London area and at private events.

In the summer of 2019 I released my very first album of devotional chant music called Songs for Savasana! The album honours this place of deep peace and nourishment that is available to us if we slow down and rest, the place where the divine dwells in each of us. Songs for Savasana is available on iTunes, Spotify, CD Baby and other online platforms.

In 2020, I released the Sacred Art Collection, honouring the Gods and Goddesses of yoga. These lightweight portable altar pieces can be found online in the Sanctuary Shop.

In 2021, the Sanctuary Membership was launched! An online virtual library of all things yoga (asana, breathwork, chanting and meditation) in short, accessible practices 5 - 30 minutes in length. Yoga practices that calm the mind, relax the body and soothe the soul! Find out more at

Contact me for information regarding the Sanctuary Membership, Songs for Savasana album, Restorative ‘Sing you to Sleep’ classes, Personal Mantra Practice workshops, Goddess workshops, private classes AND of course, please connect if you’d like more info about upcoming Kirtan events, and opportunities to share in the Bhakti bliss!
