About Me

I have been retired for 5 years, after 29 years of service as an adoption worker with Hastings Children's Aid Society ( now known as Highland Shores Children's Aid) I graduated from Loyalist College, Belleville, Ont in the early 80's with a Social Service Worker Diploma.
Yoga Expertise: With over 30 years experience with Hatha Yoga, my training has been with Toronto based teachers ( as noted above) I have also attended Sivananda Vedanta Ashram in Montreal for training on several occasions. I began teaching with the in 1974. I increased my teaching to approximately 7-8 classes a week . These classes were with Board of Education, as well as. local recreation departments. I became a member of FOYT in approximately 1974 when it began and then to be known as The Yoga Network. When I upgraded my education and began working, I cut back on my Yoga teaching however, continued to teach one class weekly until I retired. Yoga has become a lifestyle for me and it has remained part of my ongoing routine and overall well being. I believe that Yoga provides me with overall health, (mind, body & spirit). I am very disciplined with my Yoga practise which includes daily meditation. My goal with teaching is to inspire my students and teach the 5 basic steps: Asanas, Pranayama, Savananda and proper mental attitude, along with a healthy diet!
