Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom. ~ Aristotle
I am honoured to share my favourite form of expression - movement! As a Yoga and Dance instructor as well as a bodyworker I value the art and science of all these mediums. My love for the moving meditation of yoga began about 13 years ago at the Yoga Shala in Calgary where I first began taking classes. I became hooked and soon completed my teacher training in the Ashtanga method,receiving my certificate in 2010. I began teaching here in Victoria in 2011, and continue to attend a variety of classes here which inspire my own teaching, including; Flow Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Yin Yoga, Yoga Therapy, Yoga Nidra and more recently Kundalini Yoga.
My dance background includes 38 years of training and teaching, and has allowed me to develop a variety of dance and yoga classes for both the public and private sectors. I enjoy teaching dance and yoga as separate entities, but also design and implement classes that fuse the two together, through a variety of themes, which guide class content.
A recent addition to my "moving energy" toolbox is Thai Massage! I recently took my training with master teacher Deanna Villa of Thai Massage Toronto and have completed my practicum hours and have received my certification. If you would like to experience Thai Massage please go here to book an appointment! I look forward to meeting you!
