In my therapy work, I regularly highlight the benefits of reducing stress and making time for self-care - and yoga practice helps with both.
I first began practicing yoga more than 10 years ago, and I soon realized that teaching yoga is the perfect complement to my “day job” - another way to work with people looking to find a little more ease and self-acceptance in their lives.
Having become more and more passionate about helping people discover the joys and benefits of yoga, I enrolled in the Therapeutic Approach Yoga Studio 200-hour yoga teacher training program, and went on to complete 500-hour teaching certification.
My goal in teaching is to create a supportive, safe and joyful environment for people to explore yoga, to help them increase strength, flexibility and breath awareness, and to show how yoga practice can extend past the mat and into daily life.
I teach Hatha Basics and all-levels Vinyasa Flow, with attention to alignment, breath and mindful exploration of the postures. Classes are open to both new and more experienced students.
Thursdays 5:30 pm
All levels alignment-based flow at the St. Margaret's Bay Shambhala Centre in Upper Tantallon.
