I began practicing yoga as a young dancer growing up in Fort McMurray, initially falling love with yoga as a form of expression through movement. As I grew older and yoga became part of my daily life, I discovered yoga is so much more than a physical discipline - it provides a foundation for personal growth, greater compassion, and intentional living.
I became a 200hr-CYA yoga teacher in 2014 through the In Balance For Life and completed my 500hr-CYA Yoga Certification in 2015. In 2017, I completed a 25hr Yoga For All Teacher training certification specializing in yoga for larger bodies and diverse communities. In 2019 I completed 25hr Lifestyle Meditation Level 1 teacher training with Mandy Trapp.
In addition to yoga, my other passion is food! My full time job is teaching cooking, nutrition and food studies to grade 7-12 students.
About My Service
Every time you step on your mat is an opportunity to discover something about yourself, and my classes focus on creating space for self-care through joyful, intuitive movement.
I teach a wide variety of yoga classes, and currently teach regular classes at a community studio, as well as teaching yoga to youth athletes and dancers, students and teachers.
I am a passionate advocate for diversity and body positivity within the yoga community and media. I teach classes that are accessible and inclusive to people of all shapes, sizes, abilities, and backgrounds. I am presently very focused on increasing accessibility the LGBTQ2S+ community in yoga spaces and providing inclusivity training for instructors and studios.
