My current passion within my scope as a yoga teacher and Corrective Movement Specialist is to bring yoga to communities and groups which might not otherwise get to experience yoga as a healing modality. I am building bridges within our mental health community that I hope will help to encourage a more global approach to incorporation yoga into our healthcare system.

I am excited to be here for you as you explore yoga and experience all that it can do for you. Yoga is a brilliant practice that allows the practitioner to connect breath, body and spirit to create a practice that serves them, in whatever capacity they need, every time they step onto the mat. It isn’t about being bendy (although it is a nice side-effect), it is just about being - and learning to discover what that means for you.

I am a YACEP (Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider), ERYT-500 (Advanced Yoga Teacher and Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher with the Yoga Alliance) based out of Surrey, BC.

I am an active mother of 4 young boys and a regular practitioner of yoga. My passion for yoga was ignited over a decade ago when I was first introduced to prenatal yoga. The balance of healing, strength and flexibility continues to nurture me over a decade later.

I am certified to teach various class styles including: Hot, Power, Flow/Vinyasa, PreNatal, Seniors, Kids, Restorative, Yin, Trauma Sensitive Yoga, PiYo® and BootCamp.

I use yoga as a tool to help students learn to work with their bodies toward health, optimal body alignment and to release trauma. I am also a registered Personal Training Specialist and Youth Fitness Trainer.
