Our yoga teacher, Baba Hari Dass says “If you work on yoga, yoga will work on you”. This has definitely been my experience. I have been practicing yoga for 16 years, starting in university as a way to alleviate stress and anxiety. My practice has evolved to become the corner stone for all aspects of my life; influencing my relationships, the way I view the world and the community around me, and how I flow through life in general. In 2010, I experienced a life changing work place accident and decided to deepen my personal practice as a way to encourage healing and personal growth. My yogic trainings include SSCY YTT 200 hr and YTT 500 hr at Mount Madonna Center in CA. Baba Hari Dass reminds us that we “teach to learn” and I take this to heart. I learn something new in every class I teach or take. My teaching style integrates principles of alignment, subtle body and ayurveda. By cultivating body, breath, and mind throughout the practice, I encourage students to dive inside and connect with their deepest selves. I teach Hatha, Gentle, Prenatal, Yin, and Restorative classes in Victoria, Langford, and Colwood.
