Adventurer at heart seeking opportunities for growth, cultivating community and sharing my love of yoga with the world! I currently reside on Vancouver Island in Beautiful British Columbia on the west coast of Canada, where I have been focusing on transitioning from being a school teacher (my career for the past 13 years) to teaching yoga for adults.
My personal yoga journey became more impactful spiritually, emotionally and physically three years ago when I was over-worked and stressed out from my full-time contract as a school teacher and seeking more inner peace. Two years ago, I decided to take a leap of faith, and leave my full-time teaching position to pursue my love of yoga!
I completed my 200hr YTT in February 2019 with Eoin Finn of Blissology, surrounded by the mighty mountains, ocean and forest of Vancouver in beautiful British Columbia. What brought me to Blissology was how integral love, connection and nature are to the school’s philosophy. In my yoga classes, I encourage and provide opportunities for my students to love more. Love people more. Love nature more. Love themselves more. My classes include a carefully curated music playlist, guided meditation, pranayama, asana and a longer meditative focused savasana to fully absorb the benefits of the practice. My students leave feeling more relaxed, more at peace and more in their bodies and hearts rather than in their heads.
I enjoy providing spaces for my students to tune into their hearts and tune into the beauty that surrounds them. There is always something to be grateful for in every moment. Presence is the key to love and gratitude. Since my decision to leaving my career as a school teacher, I have been able to fully step into my truth and live a life that is more in alignment with what I want! For seven years of my teaching career I taught around the world as a school teacher and now I am excited to venture into the world as a yoga teacher!
