What should students expect from your class?

Breath work, creative sequencing, a touch of humor and challenging flows with good music.

About Me

I have a passion for movement and a strong background in all things fitness growing up as a dancer.  I started assisting classes from a very young age and started teaching dance at the age of 14. 

I discovered and immersed myself in yoga 10 years ago to help heal injuries after years of dance.  After completing my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, I backpacked around the world for 5 years visiting over 30 countries and counting before moving to Vancouver to complete my 200hr Yoga Teacher Training from the Vancouver School of Yoga.  Since moving to Vancouver I have also taken my Barre, Yin, Teen Yoga, Restorative and Yoga Therapy training.  I currently work as a freelance teacher around the city as well as teaching both private and public online classes.

My previous experience as a dancer and dance teacher has given me a deep understanding of the body and alignment, which I weave into my teachings with humour and positive vibes.  Music plays a big role in all of my offerings so expect some good tunes to keep you motivated and moving.

What should students expect from your class?

Clear cues, compassion for every bodies uniqueness and fun music.

About Me

I found my hot practice in 2011 following a year of personal struggles. Stepping into the hot room, turning inward, accepting things to be as they were, and allowing my body to move as the cues suggested, opened up a powerful opportunity for healing and transformation. The practice has been a safe place to work on emotional growth, connection, and joy. In 2015 I surrendered to my heart’s desire to share yoga with others. I completed Yogacara’s 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training for Hatha and vinyasa yoga at the Sea to a Sky Retreat Centre. A few months later I completed training for pre & postnatal yoga. In 2016 I completed Trauma-Informed YTT and in 2018 landed in training at YYoga for YHot. May it be practicing together or on the teacher’s seat, I will meet you with passion and an open heart.

What should students expect from your class?

My classes fuse science and art, anatomy and energy, Eastern and Western philosophy – leaving you strong, aligned, and connected to your Self.

About Me

Yoga and fitness have always been an integral part of my life. Movement, as I have experienced first-hand and know deeply, is a key ingredient in reclaiming our bodies and selves, restoring balance, and reviving our lives. I am known for my clear, authentic, and non-judgmental teaching style; as well as my ability to weave compassion-centered philosophy and relatable themes through class. I encourage the continuous growth of the physical and spiritual self, offering parts of my Self and the extensive and varied educational findings I have collected through my own life journey.

I have been teaching yoga since 2006 in studios, schools, private residences, and corporations in Toronto and, now, the Lower Mainland. I am Hatha-trained (through a 320-hour program with The Yoga Studio Toronto) under the mentorship of Cynthia Cooperstone, Michael Siddall, Vieslav Krystyan, and others who have modeled authenticity and joy in the practice and instruction of yoga. I am a lifelong student and my curiosity and zest for growth will always keep me seeking. My classes respect the differences in our bodies, our goals, our backgrounds, our stories. I acknowledge the rich and wise roots of yoga and offer up my own extensive experience with holistic health.

In addition to being a yogini, I am a trained naturopathic doctor since 2011 (knowledge from which is often woven into class), a mother since 2015, an artist at heart since birth, a healer throughout the ages, and a lioness.

A fun creative class that uses the power of breath to initiate movement, deepening flow, cultivating self expression.

About Me

I have been teaching various movement modalities since completing a three-year contemporary dance teacher training program at MainDance in 2006. Since then I have been certified as a Pilates Mat, Gyrotonic, Gyrokinesis and Vinyasa Yoga instructor. I am also a Gyrotonic & Gyrokinesis Pre-Trainer offering the first level of teacher training. Vinyasa Yoga has been my most recent certification in 2016. I enjoy drawing from my varied movement backgrounds offering a unique approach to Yoga. I also completed a two-year Cinematography program at Capilano College in 2009 where I combined my love of movement and film. My dance films have been screened both locally and abroad. I attended my first Vipassana course in 2017 which is key to my mind body practice. It brings me immense joy supporting others feel at home in their bodies and sharing the art of movement.

What should students expect from your class?

A dynamic and challenging class for all levels, with a focus on alignment, empowerment and the practical everyday application of yogic philosophy. Through the breath and asana, students learn to connect more deeply with their innate internal strength, peace and wisdom of body and mind.

About Me

I took my first yoga class in Australia in 2001. In that class I discovered a sense of calm and balance in my body I had never experienced before. From there, began a lifelong journey into the practice of yoga that would help me connect with my own innate internal strength, peace and wisdom.

Coming from a background in competitive figure skating, I was first inspired by the practice for its all-encompassing nature – it challenged me physically, pointing out areas where I was strong but also indicating areas of weakness and imbalance. Over time, I discovered newfound strength and balance in my body. Old injuries started to heal, and particularly, I found support for my ongoing scoliosis.

AsI moved into a career of professional acting in film and television, my yoga practice became even more foundational. The process of linking breath with movement and the meditation skills I learned helped me become more calm, present and deeply connected while working in the high-pressure environment of a film set.

I completed all my foundational training – 200hr YTT, YHot YTT, Yin YTT – with YYOGA, my home for yoga over the past decade. I love teaching and bringing this practice to people from all walks of life for its potential to truly transform lives.
