Like many of us, I have always felt the most at home in nature. Deeply devoted to mother earth I have always felt that the more rooted down I am, the more I can rise up. I have dedicated a lot of my life to finding ways to sleep under the stars. For the past several years I have been wandering about and found myself cycling through New Zealand, climbing in Thailand, surfing in Tonga, canoeing through the North West Territories, backpacking in India and Japan, skiing in Whistler, biking the north shore, road tripping to California and living in tents, cars and forests in Squamish, Kananaskis and everywhere in between. If it involves snow, sand, sunshine or mud – I’m in.
Between adventures, I began to study my love of movement, completing a degree in kinesiology at UBC. Yearning for connection in the city, I found yoga as a place to ground down and started exploring the mind, breath, spirit and emotion in a different context. I completed my 240-hour RYT training in Mexico with Anna Laurita where I remained for the year teaching yoga, riding horses and playing on the beach. I have since completed a mentorship with Suzanne Slocum-Gori, 39-hour Yin Teacher Training with Danielle Hoogenboom, and a Yoga for Youth Training with Ryan Leir. I am endlessly grateful for my teachers who have taught me that yoga extends beyond the mat. I have so much love for my teachers Anna Laurita, Suzanne Slocum-Gori, Reno Munez, Danielle Hoogenboom, Karl Notargiovanni, Dustin Fruson, and Alli Shafer who I continue to learn from each day. I am honoured and humbled to call myself a teacher at Karma Teachers and support the community of selfless giving. I am also grateful to the youth I work with at the CRUW program, for they are some of my greatest teachers and inspiration behind Karma Lions.
I love teaching yoga and I hope to create a space for sweat and play where everyone laughs, cries, breathes and LOVES as one.
