HELLO & WELCOME! 
 

I am a certified Yoga Instructor with 200 hrs YTT Vinyasa training & 

50 hrs YTT Yin training. Yoga is a way of life for me, it helps me to maintain

optimal health and continues to be a journey of discovery and empowerment.  

Ever evolving as an instructor, I continue to be a student of Yoga, attending workshops

and teacher trainings that add knowledge and experience to my 'toolbox' and feed

my desire to be the best version of myself.

My classes are designed to help you stretch, tone and increase your flexibility with

plenty of instruction for yogis with basic understanding of yoga asanas and options to take the yoga asanas to their fullest expression for the more experienced yoga student.

 

MY JOURNEY

I had been practicing yoga for about 15 years when I was diagnosed with an auto immune disease. Up until the diagnosis, my passion for yoga had been directed, mostly, towards power classes, I wanted to sweat and feel like I had done a great workout, I didn't much care for the part where you had to lie down and relax! All that changed when my body became consumed with inflammation and my flexibility seemed to evaporate overnight.

Drastic changes in your body can also create drastic changes in your mindset. 

Due to the chronic inflammation, I had to switch from power to Yin &

Restorative Yoga and had to learn to quiet my mind as well as heal my body.  

For a full year, I did nothing but Yin and Restorative Yoga, with amazing

instructors who helped me to stay focused and to use my breath as a

healing tool. I learnt how to enjoy being still and to hold poses for long 

periods of time, stressing and stretching the fascia and connective tissues, lubricating the ligaments and the joints. Slowly, my body began to respond

and the flexibility eventually came back. When I returned to doing power yoga,

I found myself craving the stillness of yin yoga!

Using Yoga to help heal my body was a very powerful experience for me and I decided

it was a good time for change.  After 10 years of being a successful professional photographer in the Okanagan, I gave notice to my clients and after the last photo shoot had wrapped, I flew to Costa Rica. I completed my 200 YTT Vinyasa Yoga Instructor training at the Nexus Institute, a beautiful Yoga Shala, surrounded by jungle and walking distance to the beach. Costa Rica is a wonderful place to reset your mind, body & soul as you embrace their infamous culture of 'Pur Vida'!  After Costa Rica, I completed my 50 YTT Yin Yoga in Vancouver, under the guidance and expertise of Bernie Clark & Diana Batts.

The classes I teach are designed to help you stretch, tone and increase your flexibility

with plenty of instruction for yoga students who have basic understanding of yoga asanas and options to take the asanas to their fullest expression for experienced yoga students.  Classes are a mix of Vinyasa Yoga & Yin Yoga, I believe that one goes with the other and by including the deep stretches of Yin Yoga, we create a strong foundation for our bodies to respond well to the strenuous movements of Vinyasa flow.

it's about the journey on the way down.
