92AEEEDC-9147-4EAD-8AE5-35574C1C5B2BFor me, Yoga is the practice of awareness. For a long time I operated on the autopilot of reaction, with a feeling of helplessness to control my state of mind. I thought that my emotions were dependent upon my surroundings and circumstances and because of that, I felt detached from myself, as if I wasn’t really in control. Through the practice, (the practice being asana, meditation, self study, and therapy), I became aware of my samskaras or deep seated belief patterns that placed a filter on how I saw the world, and myself. While awareness didn’t cure all, in fact it was just  the beginning of the ongoing work, it did put me on the path to empowerment, compassion, and connection with myself. Awareness means freedom and choice. 

I love helping people learn about their bodies and discover their inner power. To tap into not only what is but what could be through self knowledge, focus, and consistency. I offer alignment based asana classes as a way to educate you about your body and heighten your physical experience in this world. Like the mind, the body has patterns and we can become aware of those patterns in order to create balance; giving our attention to the places that need strength, and to the places that need mobility and space. 

It is my hope that this level of focused physical detail will help hone your concentration of the present moment in order to experience clarity of perception. When the mind is still, we can dispassionately observe those deep seated belief patterns and question their validity. We all have many stories that we tell ourselves but are those stories true? The microcosm of the yoga mat is a great, safe place to question our beliefs; about our bodies, about ourselves, about the world, and from there, to become empowered with choice. I look forward to supporting you as you rewrite your story.


I began practicing yoga asana in theatre school twenty two years ago, but the mental practice kicked in twelve years ago. I studied with Daniel Clement to obtain my 200 hour yoga instructor status in 2011. I’ve studied anatomy with Leslie Kaminoff and Amy Matthews via Pacific Elements, meditation with Carlos Pomeda, and mentored under Clara Roberts-Oss. I am a teacher trainer with Yyoga, and part of the awe-inspiring process of helping yogis make the transition to instructor, and further the sharing of this beautiful practice. I have completed my 300 hour training with Matt Giordano and am a 500 hour and Chromatic level one instructor. I want to express my gratitude for this practice that began over 5,000 years ago in Northern India. I strive to honour and practice the 8 limbs of Yoga as described by The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, the lessons of The Bhagavad Gita, and the asana knowledge of Sri T. Krishnamacharya, who taught many of the teachers that have gifted yoga to the Western world. I humbly bow to the lineage of this practice.
