About Me

I completed my 200-hour classical yoga teacher training certification in 2020 during the COVID lockdown - partly to deepen my own practice, but also to share with others the benefits of yoga for body, mind and spirit. An avid cyclist, yoga has helped me cope with shoulder pain resulting from poor posture while hunched over my handlebars during long bike rides. It's also improved my strength and endurance on the bike.

A Career Counsellor for many years in a university environment, I supported the creation and delivery of a strengths-based resilience program for young adults that incorporates mindfulness. I also completed through the School of Social Work at the University of Toronto a 6-course Certificate in Foundations of Applied Mindfulness Meditation.

About My Service

I offer private, semi-private and small group yoga instruction for individuals who would like to move their bodies safely, reduce pain, improve their self care, and find peace of mind in today’s turbulent world.
