About Me

In 2013, I began a spiritual journey by volunteering my services working with children, for six
months, in Ghana, South Africa and Nepal. It was my experience in Nepal that dramatically
changed my life and my practice. I fell in love with the country, the people and Tibetan
Buddhism. The experience affected me so much that I returned in 2015 and completed the
November course at Kopan Monastery. There, I dove deeply into the discipline of self
awareness/realization and the practise of loving kindness. While I had been practising yoga in
some form for several years, the time at Kopan made me fully aware of the importance of a
daily practise of yoga and silence. When I came back to Canada, the only place I could find this
deep silence and awareness was on my mat. Yoga became a regular and essential part of my
life. I found myself wanting to learn more and develop my practice. That desire took me to
Guatemala where, I completed a 200 hour set of courses and attained Certification as
an instructor in Classical Hatha Yoga. I find peace, calm, focus and physical strength through
my yoga practise hope to assist others to do the same.
