About Me

Looking back, I realize that I have been practicing different forms of yoga for most of my life. 

My earliest exposure to yoga was at age five, practising with my mother in our living room, and throughout my life I have explored the holistic connection of body, mind and spirit through the study of meditation, dance, martial arts, nutrition and healing. For 12 years, I expressed my creativity through body movement in formal ballet training. I studied tai chi, qigong and kabbalah, acquired my Nia dance Teachers Certification from Roberta Mohler in Toronto, my Reiki Masters in the Tibetan-Usui system of natural healing and my Meditation and Kundalini Facilitator Certification with Naturality. I continue to deepen my yoga practice by attending on-going workshops, classes and courses.

I wanted to share the joy that yoga, meditation and dance brought to my life& and so I began to teach.

I received my training certification in Hatha Yoga at Sheridan College Institute in Oakville, Ontario under the guidance of Sharon Bateman and Elizabeth Spence. I have taught yoga at U of T Mississauga Campus, Eagle Ridge Community Center in Mississauga, The Good Shepherd in Hamilton, YMCA New Women To Canada Group in Hamilton, Waterdown YMCA, and at my From The Heart Yoga home studio in the heart of Aldershot Village and Waterdown. As a volunteer instructor for various womens shelters, I have worked to encourage confidence and compassion, and to enhance the rich gifts of life and health.
