Why Do I Practice Yoga?

I practice because yoga has helped me to fall in love with life.  I stumbled into my first yoga class almost by accident and came away with a daily practice that continues to bring clarity, depth, and strength to my everyday experience. My personal journey on this path of yoga began in the late ’90s, and like any intimate relationship, it continues to reveal ever more subtle layers of insight and wonder with each passing year.

Why Do I Teach Yoga?

I teach yoga because I believe in its power to heal and to transform and  I have seen that  yoga can offer these gifts to anyone, no matter where they are starting from. To me, yoga is a path of both self-empowerment and deep humility, and to be a teacher on this path is one of the greatest honours of my life.

What Can You Expect From My Classes?

My classes reflect the knowledge I have received in my many years as a student of the Ashtanga, Vinyasa, and Anusara traditions, all spoken through the lens of my own personal life experience. My offerings are infused with the things that inspire me most, and so you can expect the asana practices that I teach to be woven around themes related to the power of practice, the wisdom of nature, and the wonder of living an ordinary life lit up through mindful presence.

What Is My Focus As A Teacher?

At this point in time, most of my energy goes into programs where I can foster a more intimate and supportive relationship with my students, for this reason, I no longer teach drop-in classes. I am primarily focusing on yoga teacher training and mentoring, as well as yogic lifestyle programs. I teach online, and in person, and spend a fair bit of time traveling around BC to offer live events.
