About Me

My love for yoga first began when I spent a winter in southeast Asia. I met two yoga instructors from Brazil and spent the winter learning and practicing. I came back to Canada and had a deep desire to learn more but lived in a small town with only two instructors. With their encouragement and my longing to expand my knowledge and lead a more yogic lifestyle, I took my training in March 2012 and have been teaching ever since. I have just recently taken my Stand Up Paddle Board Yoga Instructor training and love teaching SUP Yoga. I believe that it is important to give back to the community and was the co-creator of Yoga in the Park in Jasper, Alberta. I have provided many free classes to youth and teens and have just recently started a new program at the Mount Currie Reserve Outreach School as I have just recently moved to Pemberton, BC. I believe that yoga should be accessible for all and that is why I prefer to take my mats and props to students where they feel comfortable as opposed to hoping people will come to a studio to practice. I have taken countless workshops and sessions and just recently completed Yoga for Life: Living the Wisdom of Yoga & Ayurveda with Natalie Rousseau. I plan to take my Restorative Yoga training this summer as well as go back to school for a massage therapy in September.
