As a retired teacher and counselor I appreciate that we all have our strengths and challenges; however, all of us can continue to positively & progressively grow. Yoga practice has been part of my life for over 10 years. Through yoga practice, calmness, focus and recovery have been the gifts received. I have been a competitive xc skier, mountain biker, marathoner, duathlete, & cross country runner. Now in my senior years, I continue xc skiing, cycling, play on two soccer teams and climb for fun! Yoga is the foundation that helps me to do not only these sports, but keep up with my 6 grand-kids. I enjoy being active in the community in many areas such as:
Yoga is a life-style and quite accessible through all life stages and ages. It is truly a gift that keeps giving. I completed my 200hr Hatha training at Yoga & Tea Studio in March 2019, and my approach is progressive and individual, and I provide alternatives to poses as each day is different, needing different considerations. You can expect caring and respectful guidance throughout the session, with a great emphasis on breath and connection to mind, body and spirit. I look forward to seeing you in my class at Yoga &Tea Studio in Carp!
I am an artist and longtime resident of Carp who, after informally practicing yoga with my mom since childhood, took the leap and completed the 200hr Hatha Yoga Teacher Training at Yoga & Tea Studio in June of 2018. I have experience working as a teacher and assistant in a variety of classroom settings including:
The journey of practicing and studying yoga has greatly enhanced my life and it was a natural step for me to bring my passion and experience to others through teaching.
I approach teaching with enthusiasm, empathy, and humour and strive to ensure that the practice is accessible yet challenging and that you leave feeling energized, refreshed, and with a smile on your face!
