About Me

I am 55, and retired Sept, 2018 and am loving freedom and investing myself in yoga and causes I feel strongly about. Since I have time, I like to give back and support our veterans and also those brave people who are on their recovery journey. Yoga has always been a way to center myself and has helped with anxiety, and I hope to bring that sense of peace, healing to students.

About My Service

I am teaching trauma informed basic yoga at Blossom Place, an eating disorder and addiction recovery house. I also on the Board of Alliance Veterans PTSD Retreat registered Non profit corporation, volunteering my time teaching trauma informed yoga to veterans and first responders. I am a veteran myself, who has suffered military sexual trauma, along with a career in emergency management (retired 2018) so I also act as a mentor. Canadian Mental Health Commission training and Yoga Alliance Warriors at Ease, trauma informed yoga and yoga Nidra (accredited yoga therapy credits) supplement this volunteer teaching.
