I attended my first yoga class when I was 20 and fell in love, but it wasn’t until years later after suffering a major back injury I realized yoga was going to become a much bigger part of my life. It became an important part of my rehabilitation for my body and mind and I knew I wanted to share my practice with others.
I began my teaching journey in 2014 completing my 300-Hour Yoga Teacher Training at Source Yoga in Winnipeg with certifications in Hatha, Vinyasa, and Yin, and soon found my passion with Pre/Postnatal Yoga, continuing my education with the Empowerment Project, and obtaining my Pre/Postnatal Fitness Specialist Designation.
Since the birth of my children I have continued my studies to include over 550 hours of teacher trainings including my Kids Yoga Certifications with Kidding Around Yoga and Yoga Ed, Vinyasa Immersion in Skilful Sequencing at Shala Yoga in Squamish BC, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction with the Mindfulness Centre of Canada, Advanced Teacher Training at Yoga Centre Winnipeg, Infant Massage Instructor Certification, and various pre/postnatal fitness, pelvic health, and childbirth education courses. I am also a Reiki practitioner certified in the Usui method.
I have studied music for most of my life starting with piano and vocals and eventually turning my attention to drums and percussion. I am excited to bring my two passions together in my classes with healing sounds from singing bowls, hand pans, and other world percussion instruments to help enhance your practice and find a deeper state of relaxation.
When not on my mat, I can be found spending time in nature, making music, and baking. I live with my husband, two sons and three dogs.
