I began my yoga practise on a rooftop overlooking the Ganges River in 1992. When I returned home I began taking classes, eventually focussing on Astanga Yoga with Fiona Stang in Vancouver. I loved this practise and did some teacher's training (90 hours) in this tradition and assisted in classes. However, the principles of Gioia's work resonated deeply (the Vijnana practise) and 8 years ago I switched entirely. I am a mother, writer, and a mediator and live in Deep Cove, where I sometimes teach in a home studio. I am hoping to expand my teaching further into the community.
About My Service
I usually teach a vijnana flow class with 15 minutes of meditation and pranayama at the start, then moving with intention between poses, being mindful of energy lines, rooting, release of unnecessary holding.
