Hi!! I’m Grace, I am a registered master of social work who has always been passionate about the mind, body connection of using exercise as therapy. I believe that talk therapy may be a powerful tool, but not always the answer for someone. I have been (not always the most consistent) yogi for about 13 years now, finding that life somehow always brings me back to my mat; as I believe that most of life’s questions can be answered on our mat.
My teachers include Trish Dingman and Maddi Rundle where key learnings focussed on finding autonomy and safety in our bodies and learning to discover acceptance. This 200 hour yoga teacher training was authentic in its process as it supplied a foundation which supported a trauma informed movement and presence training; in which can be seen within my Hatha yoga classes.
For me, yoga is about learning to connect with our minds and bodies. My classes will combine both movement and self-compassion. I implore those who take my classes to allow themselves the space to be authentic with who they are and where they are at, that day. Expect to move, sweat and breathe.
