About Me

I came to yoga to heal myself emotionally, and I've stayed with yoga because of the remarkable ways in which it has transformed my entire life.

I attended my first yoga class seven years ago, and I was fascinated by the calm, wonderful feeling I had after class--I wanted more! I explored Iyengar, Power, and Vinyasa yoga for two years and then I discovered an entirely different practice: AcroYoga. This dynamic style of partner yoga fosters trust and builds communication while freeing people to get in touch with their inner child. Though the practice was ridiculously challenging for me at first, I felt motivated to progress. I fell in love with the playfulness, the connection with other people, and the authenticity it produced in my own life.

I love introducing people to AcroYoga and seeing the joy on their face when they learn their bodies are capable of more than they thought was possible. My goal is to create a safe environment in which people feel free to giggle, play, and finally soar.

About My Service

I currently teach Vinyasa yoga at Karma Teachers and several AcroYoga, Power Yoga, and Hatha Yoga classes at UBC Recreation, UBC Yoga Club, and BCIT Recreation. I am available to host beginner's AcroYoga workshops for couples and individuals. I love working with Private Clients to create a yoga practice that suits their lifestyle and physical/athletic goals while accommodating any injuries or physical limitations. I also occasionally teach special yoga workshops for ESL students as I am also a certified Teaching English as a Second Language instructor.
