A restless and curious spirit is what drives me, a visual artist, and yoga instructor.
Creating art started as early as I could hold a crayon and yoga was introduced to me in a high school gym class.
Over 25 years later, I am still practicing and teaching yoga. Its at the very heart of everything I do and live by. I also continue to create art, with a thriving commission based painting practice.
Upon moving to Halifax in 1994, I discovered strong and interesting communities for both the arts and yoga. This made my passions grow even more, none more so than with a strong desire to share it with others.
I have been teaching since 2006 and am currently completing my 500RYT professional training through TAYS and LIVE LOVE TEACH. I am also certified in Les Mills BodyFlow and am a 200hr Registered Yoga Teacher.
I love teaching various different styles of yoga, with a particular passion for Hatha Vinyasa (nicknamed “Flow Yoga”) and Power Flow. I further trained in yoga life coaching and yoga massage, elements of which have infused my teaching with more depth.
Classes with me are accessible for all levels of experience. My teaching style is grounded, methodical and thoughtful, but still light and playful too. I very much aim to guide all my students through a class where they practice finding ease within a physically challenging sequence of yoga postures. The focus is on connecting breath and movement. This ultimately leaves one feeling refreshed and relaxed, often unearthing hidden resources within each individual.
When I am not teaching or practicing yoga, I can be found in my painting studio or else fully engaged in an active family life with two teens and multiple pets!
