About Me

I am a mother of two, educator, healer, artist and musician. For 23 years I've worked in Indigenous, inner city and alternative school settings. In all, I have shared Yoga with the students, enlivening and deepening the experience of school. Reiki Master training is a layer of my rootedness practice, as is my personal long time yoga and meditation practice. I seek to be in right relationship with earth, work and with people. I recognize and experience the struggle of living in our culture of extremes, the tenderness and dissociation, brilliance and dislocation. I seek to share best I've found to support others' healing journeys.

About My Service

I offer TCTSY, Trauma Centre Trauma Sensitive Yoga, with youth and adults in private and community settings. TCTSY is a body based treatment for Complex Trauma. The more I learn about Climate Anxiety, the more I believe in the potential of TCTSY as a support/treatment for folks with all types of existential anxiety. With over 20 years experience as an educator in Indigenous, inner city and alternative settings, I seek to meet folks just as we are, to create opportunities for shared authentic experience and growing strength and resilience through the body.
