Teacher/Co-owner

The wonders of yoga have woven their way through my life for the past 30-plus years, but it was at my first Modo class (Moksha then) in 2006 when I knew I had discovered something truly extraordinary. The challenge of the posture sequences, the intensity of the heat, and the welcoming and comfortable atmosphere of the studio, all balanced perfectly upon a strong and nurturing community foundation. Here, I found my oasis.

In November of that same year, personal tragedy rocked my world to its roots, and the subsequent struggle to regain my footing has been enormous and at times, seemingly impossible. Modo has offered me serenity and gentle support and plays an integral part in my ongoing healing process that continues to this day.

I joined the Energy Exchange (Trade) Program because I wanted to delve deeper into the amazing community I had found. Then, with the encouragement of my family and my Modo friends, I travelled solo to Kerala, India in February 2010 where I proudly completed the 4-week Intensive Modo Teacher Training Program. From there, I travelled north to explore the spiritually rich ancient city of Varanasi on the River Ganges, the colourful and enchanting capital of Delhi, and the awe-inspiring Taj Mahal.

Upon my return from this remarkable life experience, I was over-the-moon delighted to join the teaching crew of Modo Yoga London. Three years later, I completed the Modo Flow Training in Montréal. In July of 2017 and 2019, I was blessed and honoured to experience Yin Teacher Trainings in California with Paul and Suzee Grilley.

Beyond yoga, I find pleasure in reading (ravenously!), travelling, foreign and indie films, and walking along the water’s edge in my lakeside village.
