About Me

In addition to being in love with yoga and how this love can be imparted to others in the very privileged and honourable seat as a teacher, and how my life leans back into the teachings and practices of yoga and my magnificent teachers, I am a...
... Swedish/Danish/Canadian woman.
... wife of my beloved soul mate.
... mother of two incredible sons, who are so much smarter and mature than me.
... dancer (former professional dancer, now dabbles in hip hop).
... nature lover.
... lover of the art of communication through words, languages... currently studying my ... seventh language Hindi.
... cat lover (we have two self-indulgent and spoiled rotten beasts who constantly find new ways of wrecking our home).
... person who loves to engage in deeply meaningful and passionate conversations with inspiring people.
Thank you for inviting me into Canadian Yoga Alliance!

About My Service

I teach Alignment-based Heart-centred Haṭha Yoga where alignment rests on my foundation as an Anusara Yoga student and the Heart-centred component is anchored in my spiritual tradition of Trika Yoga.
My focus is on teacher training programs where the groups are small (4-10 students) and continued education for yoga teachers and experienced students. In addition, I also teach weekly classes for select students (they are not advertised so students find me through recommendations).
