I began my yogic journey in 2006. My practice was at times temporary depending on my life choices at the time, though ever since the first time I laid my body down on my mat, the whispers of yoga have always been in-between my ears and etched-deep within my heart… calling me back to my mat; like a home cooked meal by Ma.
By 2013 I was ready to take my practice to the next level and take a teacher training.
This experience brought me to understand I am always a student, continuously learning. The more I know, the more I know I don’t know. I am trained in Modo level 1, Modo Flow as-well as trained under Bernie Clark’s Yin training.
Music and movement has always been something my soul has been drawn to. I just love a good beat to get physically lost in, (creating playlists for my classes is the BEST) finding a part of myself at the same time. We ALL have a toddler living inside us and for me the best way to keep my toddler tame, is to move. I believe in the power of stillness, YES, though the power of movement with breath has been a life saver for me on so many levels. The simple act (not always so simple) of breath… deep, full and calm breath attached to mindful movement has helped me to deal with my monkey mind, more importantly has to helped steer me along this path of life with a bit more patience, a bit more compassion and a whole lot more love for myself and for others.
I adore leading a class at any level, to witness growth and self exploration is a gift I cherish within every cell of my body. No matter what kind of day I may be having, the second my feet hit the floor in the hot room…I feel at home. I am always so honoured to share the gift of yoga to whomever is willing to explore and receive it. Nothing (with the exception of my sweet daughters face and loving embrace!) beats the gifts I have received from becoming a “teacher” so for that I thank YOU!!
