About Me

After training as a Scientist, I travelled the world for 25 years as a Geologist. In 1999 I had an unexpected transformational experience that shattered my world view and left me momentarily experiencing The Void, and propelled me on my journey. In 2000 during meditation spontaneous movement blossomed within me that had many elements, including spontaneous yoga postures and experiences that I later found in books on advanced yoga practices. It immediately became my daily practice and after a few years I was guided to connect with the Kripalu Centre and understood part of my experiences to be similar to Kripalu Yoga Stage 3. The form that came through me was named Sacred Movement in meditation to two yoga teachers who I had shared it with. This summer I was guided to take the Kriplau Teacher Training in Kelowna and now I am committed to teach Yoga at all levels, next to my Sacred Movement, energy work and massage practice. As a Registered Natural Health Practictioner, NHPC will add Yoga to my professional and insurance portfolios, as soon as they receive my Yoga Alliance Certificate, which I hope to receive soon as I am being asked to start teaching yoga NOW!
