Feeling good Is our Birth Right!
With all of our focus in the west on the mind and productivity, we can sometimes forget that we live in a body. As we put so much emphasis and stress on doing, we often neglect our being.
Our bodies are vehicles for feeling joy. Tending to our bodies is the key to feeling and feeling is part of who we are. Feeling good is not only a worthy goal unto itself, it allows us access to greater creativity, optimism, productivity, and health.
Embodied pedagogies are central to my teaching and research.
I weave breathwork, awareness, mindfulness, and trauma-informed somatics into all of my offerings

I have been teaching yoga since 2005, when I completed my first 330 hour Yoga Teacher Training with Ruth Vandervort of Synergy Movement Studios.
I have continued to study every year with a wide variety of international teachers in a number of styles including Restorative, Yin, Prana Flow, Yoga for Kids and Teens, as well as several Therapeutic modalities while serving as Assistant Conference Director with the Toronto Yoga Conference and Show. Through my many years teaching in traditional studios, K-12 classrooms, youth addiction recovery centers, on retreat, as well as on the banks of rivers and in forests where I feel most at home, I have developed a deep sensitivity and profound respect for the preciousness of our inner landscapes.
In 2018, I completed training and became a certified teacher of an intuitive, sensual movement modality that infuses dance, rhythm, sound, and sisterhood in a dynamic and healing flow set to music.
I will also soon be completing my certification as a She Recovers Trauma-Informed Yoga Teacher and I look forward to expanding my offerings to the recovery community.
Yoga for Every Body
I have been learning and teaching the sacred practice of Yoga for almost two decades and I bring all of my respect and love to the classes that I offer.
My work in circle is rooted in the magic of community and intention with a focus on opening our hearts to unfold their sacred potential. I am committed and sensitive to the needs of practitioners, both physical and emotional while understanding that mindful movement can and should be accessible to all bodies, inclusive of all shapes, sizes, positionalities, and abilities.
My classes often incorporate laughter and sound, creative flow, and opportunities to go deeply within. Drawing on my love of music, poetry, and the brilliance of nature, I weave spiritual teachings throughout light-hearted and inspiring sequences to assist you to come home to yourself.
