    I discovered yoga after completing my MA in International Development and working with some of the world’s most at-risk populations. It was during a Yoga Teacher Training in the Sacred Valley of Peru where I realized how self-awareness, mindfulness and higher consciousness is the path towards truly eradicating disease, poverty and exploitation, both in Canada and across the globe. It was there where I realized that the journey to peace begins with each individual. I truly believe that yoga is part of a greater path to inner and outer strength, patience, play and peace. My classes are taught with a deep compassion for each student’s individual situation and are often described as inspiring, challenging and awakening experiences. I honour alignment, adjustments and mindfulness, and I simply cannot resist a ten minute savasana.

    I have been teaching Hatha Yoga in Toronto since 2006 and enjoy a thriving schedule working with people of all levels and abilities including seniors, beginners, athletes, and office workers. Thanks to practicing and apprenticing with senior Hatha Yoga teacher Patricia White for the past 9 years, I understand that willpower and determination alone often lead to injury and tension and that the only way to advance your practice is through greater presence of body, mind, and breath. My special interest and skill is working with people who have injuries or chronic health issues that limit their mobility. I've helped people with Multiple Sclerosis, Osteoarthritis, Lupus, Osteoporosis, and Sciatica find greater strength and stability in their everyday lives through a regular yoga program built around their specific needs and goals. In my classes, I encourage students to slow down and find a comfortable range of motion to feel ease rather than strain, fluidity instead of rigidity, and lightness in place of heaviness. In addition to teaching yoga classes and workshops at YogaSpace and PhysioPlus, I am a faculty member for the 200 hour and 300 hour teacher training programs at YogaSpace. Please feel free to get in touch with any questions you may have.
